The stone cabin is my grandfather's homestead foundation. There was a two story house on it. He remembers his mother scrubbing the board walk to the outhouse every Saturday until the boards were white. Now the composting toilet is inside the cabin. Cornerstones of the old barn is in the field above the cabin. The soil is very rocky and Grandpa said they " lived on elderberries and groundhog". There is 50 acres with a pink marked trail to Red Bank Creek and back up through a hemlock forest. A small stream runs through the property and forms a rocky delta in Red Bank Creek. I love the rocks on the property huge and small. Hike, enjoy the sound of the stream tickling through property, stargaze, or rest and relaxation in a hammock. There is one along the little stream and one at Outdoor Adventure Camp Site.

Linda saved us from a tight spot when a storm blew in and made driving on Interstate 80 too slow and dangerous. This was the perfect place to spend the night and wait out the storm. It isn't insulated, so it can get a bit chilly. But otherwise it's the perfect protection from the elements.

I absolutely loved staying here! The creek is soo beautiful! Linda is also very helpful and accommodating. Just be aware that the road going is not the best but the sites are not too far from the main road

We loved our stay! It was very cozy and the fireplace did keep it warm. We brought our own hardwood. The only issue we had was finding it. It is 1/4 mile after the GPS took us, then you cannot miss it. We will defiantly stay again! You must like off-grid living to enjoy your stay here.

Linda let me stay in my camper by the rustic cabin in a perfect little spot. Road was closer than it would have been in the other area but, all in all, not that distracting. The area where I would normally have been was a very nice clearing in a wooded area. Would definitely say here again.

It is EXACTLY as listed. Bring extra linens, our sleeping bag was the hero. Bring an extra propane can. Bring flashlights or a lamp. For the price, you literally cannot beat it. Lots of mud as soon as you drive onto the property, I needed 4wd as soon as I closed the gate behind us. Be warned or stay far to the side, it's not so bad on the sides.

Favorite HipCamp!
Our fifth time at the cabin and it never disappoints! Spent my daughters 21st birthday here and had an amazing time camping over the fire and walking the pink trail. The wood stove kept the cabin from getting too chilly. Time to plan the next trip there!

So much to explore
I loved this place! We will be back! The cabin was adorable and well stocked with helpful supplies (lots of lanterns/flash lights, a propane camp stove, utensils, and the thing my husband loved the most, a hydraulic wood splitter). The beds up stairs were nice. The bigger bed was soooo comfortable. I slept better on it then I did on the hotel beds we'd been staying in all week. My daughters loved exploring to he creek, finding crawdads and frogs and a baby snapping turtle, and hiking the trail through the woods. They have a nice sitting area around the campfire and a chair by the creek and if you follow the creek a little ways there is a hammock set up too! But the coolest thing was when we cut up a dead tree and discovered it had Armillaria Root Rot. Something I had never heard of until I googled why our fresh chopped wood's bark was glowing in the dark! It's a bioluminescent fungus that grows under the bark of the tree. It glows blue and we enjoyed turning the flashlights off and finding all the glowing pieces around where we'd cut up the dead tree. Probably not something anyone else will get to see because all the other trees around looked healthy, so hopefully not infected with it.

Nice location along stream surrounded by hemlock trees. Co-host stopped by one evening to show our 4-year old daughter a goat and rabbits. Beds are comfortable. Downstairs area is rather gloomy but the loft (sleeping area) is nice enough. Would recommend to others.

Woodsy private oasis
I loved this rustic wild site and wished I could have stayed longer to enjoy the whole homestead and some of the trails. Very private and spacious. Great fire pit and easy access to our personal (clean) creative looking outhouse. Super welcoming host who brought me duck eggs for my breakfast.

Beautiful place to camp for the ni.
It was a safe, secluded place to camp. Hiking trail to the Creek was well marked. Very beautiful and I would recommend it for it’s proximity to the Red Bank Creek bike trail. Definitely would recommend this camping spot.

Private, peaceful tent site
It was a nice place to spend the night, hosts were accommodating despite us booking last minute. We didn’t have a chance to explore the trails and river due to traveling through. Sites felt safe and secure, were behind a gate with lock. Plenty of spots for hammocks!

Beautiful land and access to hiking trails and creek. There is a stream very close to the cabin. Our dog loved running around, swimming, and sitting at the fire.

It's a little difficult for me to give this a fair review, as I did not stay at the shed. It was located a few thousand feet off the road (actually a good thing) and rather wet spring we had made the road a bit soft. Traveling through on an 800+ Lb. motorcycle, I wasn't comfortable riding up the pathway to the shed and I didn't want to carry all of my gear back and forth (and it was raining) so I pitched my tent near the road on a nice level spot. It was indeed perfectly acceptable to fulfill my needs for the evening. My only suggestion for the owners would be to mark the location more clearly, as it's near impossible to find. Fortunately, the host answered the phone when I called for guidance.

An awesome, clean site. There was a lot of tree coverage for shade. My friend and I enjoyed our time there. The duck and chicken eggs were delicious.

Anniversary weekend
10/10 Highly recommend! We loved the Stay at the cottage! What a beautiful weekend away from EVERYTHING! The pink trail was absolutely incredible. The creek was cool and refreshing after several hikes in Cook Forest! Just far enough away from everything but close enough to stores etc… when needed. The bed was comfy! Another welcome after a long day of hiking and exploring :) Thanks to Judy for welcoming us and for bringing duck eggs for us to try! Will be buying some when we return. Thank you for a wonderful getaway! Can’t wait to come back and bring the family!!

Shouldn't be rented
The people renting the spot were really nice and really helpful I don't want this review to reflect them. But the cabin was not well maintained there were stains all over the beds and pillows, mold mice, mice poop everywhere

Beautiful property
Linda was very warm and welcoming, and I appreciated her creating time to check in on me. The property is amazingly beautiful, and I enjoyed my stay. Definitely bring heavy duty tick repellent if you go hiking, as my all natural spray wasn't enough to keep those pesky jerks at bay. Also bring some sheets. Not sure if I misread the description, but the bed and pillows had no sheets. I had brought extra blankets, but didn't bring sheets. It wasn't a huge deal but would have brought sheets had I known there wouldn't be any. Seeing as this was my only "complaint" (although it's more of an observation), 10 out of 10 would stay there again. Thank you, Linda! Had a lovely break on my work trip!
