We originally purchased the 20 acres of untouched land and built our cabin, the "Snug Shack," as a getaway from the city.  Fast forward a few years, and 40 acres next door with an abandoned house on the canyon ridge went up for sale. We decided to purchase it and start a homestead there. That 40 acres where we now live was badly abused, and we have been in the process of cleaning up and restoring it.  Fortunate for you, the land surrounding the Snug Shack was never abused and is still pristine and beautiful. By camping at the Snug Shack, you help support us in our mission to restore this beautiful place. We named our homestead after the rings of small oak trees that grow here on the ridge.: "Oak Ring Ridge."

Second Trip to the Snug Shack!
This was my second trip to the Snug Shack and it was better than the first. Everything was fantastic and we got to hike/explore more of the property. Such a beautiful property that is surrounded by amazing National Forest and BLM land. The hosts are awesome and kind, as well as make themselves available if needed. On this trip, we had a wild horse run right through the Snug Shack area (about 20 feet from the shack) around 8am and it was super cool. The wild horese are so beautiful and majestic. We also saw a scorpion while chopping wood, which was also super cool. I look forward to coming back next summer and exploring more of the land.

Seclusion in the Trees
Love the remote location in the trees! Totally private, peaceful, and quiet. Although we drove a minivan here, it's still best that you come in a higher clearance vehicle due to about a mile of gravel and dirt road. The water piping and solar electrical are really well done, and the cabin, although simple in design, insulates fairly well and has loving design touches. Note that the loft bed is quite impressed/worn in the center, but we ended up sleeping with our camping gear on the floor with our baby. Outdoor shower was wonderful! Would come back again if we came through! Thank you.

Don’t miss out!
This was probably the cutest place I’ve ever stayed! I love how serene the area was and how safe you felt! There is a locked date leading to your driveway so you don’t question strangers driving past. The outdoor toilet and shower were so cute and perfect for sky gazing!

Future Revisit!
This was such a charming lil destination for my family and I. It accommodated all of our needs while still remaining minimal to give that off the grid wilderness experience. We did encounter some issues with the solar power but the Host was very attentive and came out to fix the issue as soon as we notified them. We would definitely stay here again. There is plenty of open space to explore and the nearby lake was very quaint and relaxing to cool off from the hot days we had while there. Sarah and Andy were very kind and willing to answer any questions we had, they even let us borrow their Dutch oven because we forgot to pack ours.

This well crafted and gorgeous A-frame was a perfect stop on the way down south. Andy was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. And, awesome outdoor shower in a beautiful setting!

Perfect petite A-Frame
This is such a sweet and perfect little cabin, a jewel in the forest. We loved everything about this beautifully crafted A-Frame. The hosts were very patient with us even when we got a wee lost. The outdoor bathroom and shower is probably the best Hipcamp outdoor bathroom we have ever used! Nice hot water flow. Clean, green, and beautifully made. A peaceful and magical place. We loved sleeping up in the cozy loft, but we are older fit people. The loft is not for the less agile among us hip campers and the loft is your sleeping area in this perfectly petite cabin.

Shooting stars await
On my road trip from Portland to Tahoe, this was the perfect place for a layover. The Snug Shack worked great for my needs. The outdoor bath and the entire was super clean. Sleeping in the loft with a view of the stars was magical and I saw a shooting star while sitting outdoors. I found the place easily by setting my Google Maps nav to the compass points given in the Hipcamp listing… and the easiest way to approach it from Portland is to use Highway 97. Be sure to set nav before you lose cell connection, like in Klamath Falls or Dorris. Did not see rattlesnakes or bear, but did hear an owl who seems to be watching over this charming peaceful place.

Had an amazing one-night stay at snug shack. The host welcomed us, showed us around the place and helped settle us in. The shack itself was absolutely beautiful - it was clean, had running water, a working stove, a mini refrigerator and some classic games. The bed was comfortable, and the view at night was one to remember. The bathroom was also great. Very clean, and had hot water. Only regret was that we couldn't spend more time here. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to experience a remote stay without actually camping. Keep in mind cellular connection is weak to non-existent, but it truly was refreshing to disconnect for 24 hours.

A-frame getaway
This is a totally lovely place to stay that is close to Highway 97 but feels like you are truly off the grid. The a-frame itself has really thoughtful design features, and is super comfortable to stay in. Having the heated outdoor shower is a MAJOR plus also! We were able to cook our dinner, get cleaned up after a few days of more rustic camping, and enjoy the evening. The property is also expansive and is super pleasant to walk around on if you enjoy looking at wildlife. Would highly recommend this place, and we'll be back!

Awesome little hand made cabin in a quiet off the beaten path slice of land. Super cozy spot with everything you need to cook a meal, solar panels for power, soft lighting for reading a book, eating a meal, playing a game. And to top it all off an outdoor shower and composting toilet that feel super luxurious for a clamping experience. Highly recommend this little gem!

Nature escape
We loved our stay at the Snug Shack! Cute, cozy cabin with all of the essentials. Secluded in nature, we didn't see anyone during our stay except for being greeted by the host, who was very kind and helpful. The outdoor (hot) shower was magical! We were road tripping with our dogs, and this was the perfect, peaceful pitstop. Would definitely stay again.

Showering Under the Stars
My stay at Oak Ring's property was nothing less than perfect. I was on my way to California for work, solo female traveling and found peace, serenity, and safety during my stay. Andy greeted me upon my arrival at 8PM, showing me the beautiful A-frame and all of its glory. Cell reception was dually noted in their itinerary, therefore I prepared myself for a device-free evening (which turned out to be much needed). Though there was no cell service, they have set up a communication line with a radio in case I needed anything; this feature made me feel even safer. The outdoor shower was incredible, nothing like showering under the stars at night (with hot water)! Really, I could go on forever about the charm, simplicity, and comfort this little cabin offered me, but instead I will leave you with this--climbing into my vehicle to leave the next day was really difficult, like sick-to-my-stomach difficult, I just didn't want to leave this magical place.

Camping with our doggie
We had an amazing stay!! Andy was there to great us promptly and to show us the ropes around the the property. The A-frame cabin was amazing!! We loved the open roof where we can see the moon. Our pup loved hiking around the property and meeting a few horses. At night, we listened to rain drops falling against the cabin. It was lovely! We want to come back!! Highly recommend!!

The Perfect Get Away!
If you're looking for a remote camping experience with a few "glamping" perks, then the Snug Shack is perfect! Beautiful views, Milky Way views, lots of wildlife, miles of hiking and exploring, and the best little shack one could ask for! The property and surrounding land is amazing! We were privileged to have a couple visits from some wild horses, lots of deer, grey horned owl, and coyotes. Sarah and Andy were great and did an awesome job on the property! I am not sure I have ever met someone as relaxed/calm as Andy/"Oak", but that is a compliment and testament to where they live and the land that they have. I felt totally recharged after my stay and did NOT want to leave. I hope to make a yearly visit to the Snug Shack.

Lovely peaceful and easy stay!
This is a lovely little cabin, so peaceful and with everything we needed for a fun layover on a long drive. Clearly put lots of care into building the place and it is a great opportunity to sleep someplace so different from our own home. My daughter loved pretending this was our permanent home the whole evening. It's a place that sparks imagination!

I absolutely loved my experience. Every detail of the cabin is so unique and thoughtful. It is very remote, but I happen to have cell service just 5 minutes down the road. I stayed with my pup and we hiked around in the area and watched the sunset over a beautiful canyon. The coyotes were active and pretty loud all night, which kept my dog up, but I didn't mind :) Added to the experience! There was a dusting of snow (early April) but the wood stove heated up the cabin very quickly. I will definitely be back, a very magical place.

The Snug Shack was peaceful. It was so quiet and calm its as if time slowed down (in a good way). The outside shower was probably my favorite part. Andy was also very nice and welcoming. Great little spot.

The Snug Shack was a perfect place to stay on our drive down the 97. It wasn’t too long of a detour from the main road but felt completely secluded and peaceful. It was smoky so we really appreciated that there was an air filter in the cabin. We loved the details and the creativity that went into the place, from the mason jar pendant lights to the hand painted signs on the property. By far our favorite part was the outdoor shower in the trees. We hope to come back to the Snug Shack again soon!

Amazing little cabin! It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I absolutely love how many windows there are. There is always natural light coming in during the day. Very secluded, we saw the host once, and had peace and quiet in nature our whole stay. We even saw a herd of wild horses! Our dog had the time of his life.
