Here's your chance to check out this comfortable little rustic off-grid cabin in the woods with it's southern exposure views. Rustic comforts include loft sleeping area with king bed, indoor compost toilet, water catchment & filtering system, cook stove, wood stove, & solar-powered lighting system. I  just recently raised the nightly rate by $15 to $90 to cover costs of a non-electric propane furnace,  and a new solar powered 12-volt refrigerator,  as well as supplying firewood for wood stove. These additions make it a more relaxing experience not having to worry if you are fire-starter challenged or if you check-in late.  Escape the carbon footprint jungle for a weekend or a week. We have you covered. We want to assure you that we clean the cabin between stays, supply clean linens, and provide hand sanitizer/disinfectant cleaners for your use. Winter note: There are some short cross-country ski trails on property and nearby trails. 

Purplehaze Acres is a 60-acre organic rustic farm in Rubicon, WI and resides at the beginning of the approx. 650-mile Niagara Escarpment--known locally as "The Ledge". We are in close proximity to the natural treasures of the the Ice Age Trail for hiking, Pike Lake for swimming,  the great Horicon Marsh, the Wild Goose Trail for biking, and Lake Sinnissipi/Rock River for canoeing/kayaking/fishing/boating*. Also a little drive away is the world-renowned Holy Hill Shrine. Nearby Hustisford ("Husti") offers unique shopping experiences, such as the Mercantile. Need a few organic groceries? Make sure to visit Back To The Best Organic grocer only 3 miles away and featuring food raised on local organic farms including Purplehaze Acres. Overall, this is a great "peace" of earth. ☮

*Despite the Hipcamp site stating we are near Harrington Beach and Kohler-Andrae, we are actually 58 miles (over an hr) away. There are many attractions much closer.

Great, secluded and rustic. Cabin had everything you need. Nice update with the "new" stove/oven.
Perfect base camp for day trips to Horicon Marsh.
Darryl & Linda were friendly and helpful hosts.

This camp is EXACTLY what I was looking for: quiet, woodsy, way off the beaten trail. And in late October the forest puts on quite a show here. The house is SO delightful, with everything you need, well-crafted (built by Darryl), in perfect working order and ready to enjoy. There is a hand-pump at the sink, an old oven/stove, a peat-compost toilet (amazing), a very efficient wood-burning stove (which I had going most of the time), and even a solar-powered fridge! Upstairs in the loft the bed is large and cozy. Outside I made a big ole fire in the firepit with wood supplied on site. Really, does anything beat this? I journaled, read, played solitaire and listened to the radio, grilled sausages, went for hikes, and drove around the area (lots of charming small towns). Darryl's so nice he gave me a lift into town with his dogs Scallywag and Swabby! If you're looking for a place to forget the world and gain your soul this could very well be the place.

This cabin was so adorable, cozy and equipped with the very basics. If you're looking for peace and quiet, to disconnect from your busy lifestyle, go here. Darryl and Linda were awesome hosts, helpful but not intrusive, and I wish I'd talked with them more and gotten to know them! It's a large land with trails for exploring with your dog, a short drive "into town" for lunch on the lake, and on your way out, stop by Once In A Blue Moon for a hearty breakfast to fill you up before you get back on the road. My husband and I highly recommend this place and plan on coming back. Thank you Darryl and Linda.

A great camping getaway when you need a few frills, like a composting toilet in your cabin. We loved how easy it was to make our meals, with the camper stove inside and the gas grill and fireplace grate outside, and the solar fridge was wonderful! No extra trips out for ice. The cabin was very private and the loft bed very comfortable. All this made for a relaxing getaway and a lot less prep and setup for us.

My 2 adult daughters and I and 1 10 year old dachshund stayed at Stone Ridge Tiny House over the weekend. We had planned on tent camping but due to rainy weather we looked for a cabin type place to stay, I was so excited it was available since we were booking last minute.

The house was comfortable, bed and couches super clean. The stove and fridge worked great. I was a little out of my element with the toilet, there is no door or curtain on the ‘WC’ so that was a little awkward at times.

Sadly we were not able to enjoy any of the outside, I would have loved to have had a fire and played games at the picnic table. There were also 2 grills to cook on.

Darryl was great and very hospitable, we met one of his dogs and she was so sweet. He offered us kayaks and canoes to use as well as offering to bring us firewood if we needed it. And to call him for anything. Darryl seems to be prepared for anything and is definitely improving things.

The drive through the property was not quite what I expected but once you get back to the Tiny House it is super adorable and secluded. Once you settle into the it is easy to get comfortable and really enjoy the solitude.

I would 100% go back in nicer weather.

If you’re willing to drive for activities check out Pike lake for swimming and kayaking. Sinnissippi Lake is said to be nice as well. And definitely head over to Mocha Vino in Hustisford for espresso and a bagel sandwich for breakfast.
