The place where we stayed was beautiful! The place had plenty of ventilation due to being able to open one of the walls and you had a perfect view of the night sky. Janice included plenty of water, firewood, utensils propane and linens. The pond itself didnt disappoint either, my favorite part being little turtles that we tried to catch. Being in the woods, there were a fair amount of bugs, but the cabin itself was well sealed and no insects were able to get in. We will definately be coming by again next year!

This was my second time staying at this cabin and it was another wonderful time. The cabin has cute decor and the bed and pillows are super comfortable. I liked the screen that can be opened along one of the clear panels. The cabin was very hot during the daytime but it was nice to have relief at the natural swimming pool! I spent a lot of time lounging in the sun and feeling refreshed in the water. I also enjoyed the outdoor shower. The cabin had an outdoor cooking area with a propane camp stove, dishes, cookware and two jugs of potable water to use for drinking or dishes. It was enjoyable to be able to cook outside and eat at the picnic table. Dan and Janice have created a beautiful oasis in a peaceful setting and they are great hosts.

A simple, special getaway.
I appreciated the quaint outdoor kitchen and the indoor little wood fire stove. I was fascinated with the view of the starlite sky from the bed. I even saw a firefly. Thanks for sharing your special oasis with the public. Oh, yes, the main feature - the sauna and the organic outdoor pool.

Eco-Friendly Retreat in the Woods!
I had a wonderful experience staying for two nights at this cabin! The cabin was small and cozy and had cute decor and thoughtful touches. The tiny wood stove was cool and added some warmth in the evening. The bed and pillows were super comfortable. Inside the cabin, there was a USB plug in for your phone, lights, candles and a fan. There was an outdoor kitchen with sink, potable water, stove, cooking utensils, picnic table and tinder/paper/wood for the fire pit or wood stove. Just a short walk from the cabin, there was an outhouse with solar powered light (which was great for visits after dark). The mosquitoes got pretty bad in the evenings so make sure to bring some coils or a thermacell. My favourite part of my stay was enjoying the sauna and natural swimming pool/pond. The sauna was wood fired and it didn’t take long to heat up. I liked pouring water over the rocks to get the sauna super steamy! The pond had a plastic liner on the edge and at the bottom, so it wasn’t weedy at all. The water was cool and clear and very refreshing especially after a sauna and a warm day of exploring. It was pretty deep near the dock and the middle of the pond (7 feet or so). There were lounge chairs around the pond as well to soak up the sun. Next to the sauna was an outdoor shower (which I didn’t end up using, but it looked great). The setting next to the woods was super peaceful and relaxing. It felt like a retreat away from the busyness of life. Would absolutely recommend!
