Campsite visitors and rodent feces
A heads up and shop vacuum would go a long way for this listing. It would be helpful to include photos of the cabin from all points of view. At just about 100ft. from the cabin is the home with many friendly and curious children. We had intended to find a quiet spot to camp with our small family, and we found this was not going to happen for this trip. The 5 children who occupied the house were constantly in our campsite (although sweet, this was not what we wanted).
The cabin itself was sound and warm enough without lighting the stove. In addition the layer of dirt, dust and drawer full of kids plastic tea set, there were plies of rodent feces in the corners of the room under our beds as well as nesting and rodent feces above the built in closet. It was clear we were staying in the somewhat forgotten playhouse.
I am not sure if i was charged extra for the constant visitors or for the sleepless nights over piles of feces? This was by far the most uncomfortable experience I have ever paid for!!
Slice of paradise in our backyard
Location was key, which made our trip one of the more enjoyable ones. The hosts are a wonderful family. River access is absolutely easy, and the place is very beautiful.
Its not an AirB&B, nor a hotel. This is a tiny cabin with antique wood stove, and the cabin does not have plumbing. I wanted my family to be exposed to primitive camping without the backpack, and this fits bill beautifully. There is a beautiful tent pad, where we pitched our tent. Our 10 year old was thrilled to try tent camping
There are no plumbed bathrooms. Water is from a roughly setup spigot, for everything. Toilet is a 5x5 ??? Outhouse and host had printed out instructions
Quaint little cabin near river. Very friendly family on site. Note: the river is extremely low right now, so water is stagnant and warm. It gets ridiculously hot inside cabin during the day, so leave the window closed until evening. PS, recent mountain lion sighting on the property, so travel in pairs! Also, if using Google maps, there is no Paradise Ranch Rd. From Shenandoah Rd, Mt. Aukum Rd, turn right on Fairplay, left on Perry Creek Rd, about 2 miles turn left on Ant Hill Rd
Great quick weekend gateway!
We wanted to get out of town and found this spot with river access and decided to try it out. Super easy directions on how to get there and where to park, the signs helped also. We unpacked and quickly wanted to go down to the river since it was nice and hot out. While unpacking we realized the cabin was made partly with cob (natural building material) we had just learned of this new technique and was amazed on how well it was built. We then decided to walk down to the river which took at max a 10 min down a trail. It was so pretty out, we enjoyed ourselves on our floaters and our 2 year old loved wading in the water. We needed up meeting our Hipcamp hosts down at the river with their lovely kids. After we were done we walked back to the cabin to start cooking. We used their table they have set out behind the cabin for cooking/dinner. After dinner we went in to get comfortable and cozy. Sad we couldn’t use the wood burning stove BUT that was just because the cabin was already so warm inside. This is a great place if you want to be by the river and hang out and lounge. Would definitely come back!
Great cabin & bargain! will return.
We had a wonderful stay at Consumes River Cabin Camp - the cabin was cozy and provided everything we were looking for for a relaxing weekend away from home. The host was very good about communication and we felt that our privacy was respected during our stay. The property was beautiful - we followed their path down to the river where we found a giant flat rock to sunbathe and enjoy the views from. The property is also conveniently located not too far from a lot of hikes and wineries (~20-40min on average). A couple of things to be aware of: 1) There were a lot of mosquitoes in the evening and we got bitten up pretty bad outside of the cabin (inside we were fine) and 2) The cabin is relatively close to the property. Although we did feel we had our own space, the curtainless glass door and windows made the stay feel a little less private than we'd like (next time we'd probably bring a couple of pushpins and sheets to hang up for a little more privacy). Other than these minor issues, we really have no complains. We were lucky enough to get a visit from their extremely friendly and well-behaved dog and had a lot of fun exploring the area. We will likely return in the near future!
Not very conscientious but gorgeous
The space was fairly difficult to find despite downloading maps and directions, and unfortunately having no cellular signal didn't help but we eventually managed. When we arrived however we were very confused and would have appreciated more signage in the space, especially at the entrance.
The cabin was particularly dusty, the oven was full of ash and needed to be shoveled, and the outhouse had been used previous to us despite being the only campers that day. Luckily a broom and flat shovel for the oven was provided but only a broken spade with no handle was provided for shoveling the ground to bury your humanuare. So bring a shovel.
Expect no covid safety protocols. No one we saw were wearing masks including the host when they dropped off a bundle of wood. When I saw them approach, i covered my face quickly with a sweater and asked, "mask?" They simply replied sorry and kept walking till they were directly in front of me.
The cabin was cozy and perfectly fit a folding table with the futon rolled out, which is more of a full then a queen. The view at night was magical and the river is enchanting. The hike to the river is steep so carry a light load and bring sensible shoes.
