Rustic cabin has a loft for sleeping. Camping indoors. Great for outdoors people who want to bicycle, hike, snowshoe, and kayak days on Red Bank Creek trails. The acreage is beautiful and quite private. Dogs love it too.  The cabin is dark and conducive to " early to bed and early to rise" active explorers.  Sleep well in the quiet with a sturdy door and a roof which means no leaky tent. Heat water on stove to clean up or to make soup.  The heat from woodstove goes up to loft area.  Avoid traipsing to toilet outside in middle of night, compost loo is downstairs. No flush to wake anyone, just cover with sawdust provided. The trails begin in Brookville 3 miles away and go 50 miles to the Allegheny River. Or do our 1 hour pink marked hike loop on the property. Be aware for winter camping, floor of cabin is concrete and often damp, therefore sleep up in loft.  

Small firepit next to picnic table outside along a stream, which may be gushing or a trickle depending on weather and time of year. The downstairs of cabin is cool on hottest day due to sandstone walls and in winter naturally somewhat warmer than outside. Unsplit firewood provided. I have a cohost who is not intrusive who helps greet you when I am not available.  She sells fresh eggs if you'd like some. The duck eggs are best. An axe and bow saw a single log splitter available for your use.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! I was picturing something a little more "off the beaten path" but with the leaves still on the trees at the time of my stay the seclusion was quite acceptable. Would certainly consider this cabin again if i find myself in the area.

What a conveniently located, cute campsite! The cabin was easy to find and it has a lot of charm. It is close to a lot of amenities and downtown Port Barnett, with beautiful forests and trails nearby. The host was very welcoming and responsive. We visited during a heat wave, so the cabin was a bit muggy, but this would be a perfect spot for fall, winter, and spring!

The sleeping area can be accessed via this cool old metal ladder.A wood stove and table provide a great space for card games!Duck your head!Your spot for the night!

We loved our stay at the rustic cabin with a loft. Everything was ready when we arrived and they checked later to make sure we had a good stay. We will definitely stay there again.

This was our second visit to Linda’s “Hobbit House” Once again we were only able to stay overnight but this time we arrived early enough to check out the trails and tent campsites. We would love to use them for an extended stay as they are beautiful and well maintained. We purchased some delicious eggs from Judy who visited the site to make sure we had everything we needed. She is warm and friendly and we felt very welcome. We got an excellent night sleep in the loft.

This was our second stay at the cabin and we love it! The trail is great and the creek and river make it all perfect. Great way to feel secluded but still be five minutes from a store.

We scheduled this Hipcamp experience as an overnight halfway point on a road trip from Michigan to Connecticut. It was such an awesome place to stay though that we plan to come back for a longer vacation. The loft is accessed by a very study ladder that my 91 year old had no problem using. We got a great night’s sleep and were warm with an outside temperature in the 40s. Beautiful hiking trails. Very dog friendly.

It was a beautiful, snowy weekend at Linda’s cabin. Linda was super helpful when I was a little turned around before arriving. The cabin was stocked with dishes and water and sleeping arrangements and had some books and candles — a nice touch. I had trouble starting a fire at first and Judy very sweetly came over and started it for me, and showed me how to use the wood splitter! It was still chilly inside with the fire going but much warmer than camping outside, which was down to 16 degrees F this weekend! With lots of blankets it was plenty warm :) and the location is so beautiful, there’s some amazing trails to explore nearby.

Maybe a helpful tip: the wood this weekend was pretty wet from snow, and I ended up going into town to get fire starter bricks just in case. They turned out to come in handy! Might be a helpful thing to bring if you’re not confident in your fire-starting skills!

Linda and Judy were very communicative and so kind! The small cabin is just what you’d expect for an off-grid camping trip. The indoor composting toilet was definitely a plus for winter camping as we didn’t have to go outside! We (my partner, our dog, and I) absolutely loved the pink-blazed trail through the woods. Very beautiful with varied terrain! Wish I had this on my property. Just be careful not to get the orange and pink blazes confused and the orange signified the boarder of a wildlife refuge where hunting is allowed. No issues whatsoever and the cabin has plenty of extras if you forget any cooking supplies and the property gets dark and quiet at night (couldn’t tell you if there is good stargazing because it was too cloudy during our trip). 10/10 would recommend (Were actually already thinking about planning a summer trip)!

SUCH an adorable little place! The firewood add-on was a great choice as Linda provided more than enough to last the night and keep us warm! Do bring lots of lights and lanterns!

Make sure to NOT go down the road with the green barred gate- pass that on your right and continue down Sheep Farm Road to the next driveway on your right. It will have a sign that says 2071 and you can pull right up to it. It’s a little closer and more visible to the main road than I expected but we still had a wonderful time and would love to go back at some point!
