Hand-built one of a kind cabin on 20 private acres of land, all to yourself. Explore thousands of additional acres of Klamath National Forest, including canyons, creeks, rocky plains, meadows, and deep woods, from your front door!  Wild horses, wild birds, wildlife, and wild flowers surround you in this secluded off grid experience.

The cabin has solar power, bluetooth stereo, gas stove top, running water, mini fridge, sleeping loft with "full" size mattress (bring your own linens/bedding), and a hot water outdoor shower and composting toilet (similar to the "loveable loo:" look it up if you're not familiar).

Parts of the cabin were built using salvaged dead cedar and pine we milled right on the land here.  We originally designed and built this getaway from city life for our own enjoyment, and now we are sharing it with you! You probably won't see or hear us much during your stay, but we live on a neighboring property and are available if you have any questions during your stay. 

Great for a single person, couple, or small family looking for a secluded, quiet retreat, or for a small group gathering.

Up to four people can stay in the cabin, but it will be a tight squeeze. Kids under 8 are free and don't need to be added to your total. If you would like to have additional people beyond the four the cabin can accommodate (up to ten total), they will need to camp in one of several possible camp sites (two with a place to pull a camper/van in) and/or stay in the "wooden tent."  We don't rent the campsites or mini cabin separately, so you do not need to worry about other people being present at those sites when you stay.

Near Juanita Lake and Shovel Creek. Enjoy day trips to Lava Beds National Park, Medicine Lake, Crater Lake, Klamath RIver, and Mount Shasta. Great stopping point along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway (hwy 97), and halfway between San Francisco and Portland. 

A note on smoke and fires in our region:

Summer is fire season for most of the Western US. We will alert hipcampers to known hazardous conditions (fire or smoke danger) in our immediate area and will grant cancellations beyond the cancellation window in the event of directly hazardous conditions.

We use "airnow" air quality index ratings to judge air quality in our location. Hazardous conditions are defined as sustained ratings of "unhealthy" or worse at our location.

Fire hazards are defined as fires with direct impact on our location, such as evacuation warnings and orders, fires blocking immediate access routes (roads), or fires with reasonable potential create such impacts in the near term. Fires causing general travel detours to the region do not fall under this category.

We will not grant cancellations beyond the cancellation window for general smoke/haze in the air or wildfires not directly threatening us. It is guests' responsibility to monitor air quality conditions and wildfire events in advance and determine feasibility of travel for themselves.

Some additional notes about staying here:

- This is a hand-built, quirky little cabin. We will greet you and show you around when you arrive, but you will not see us after that unless you need something. An instruction sheet is provided in the cabin covering main points as well.

- Please bring your linens or sleeping bags, as the cabin does not come with them. The bed in the loft is a full size.

- There is a walkie-talkie provided in the cabin, should you need to communicate with the owners who live nearby. 

- Watch your head if you are tall!

- Phone service is spotty to non-existent here.

- The solar power system is adequate to run the mini fridge and provide basic power for phones, computers, and other electronics. Do not expect to use high wattage appliances such as heaters or hair dryers, or anything else with a heating element. 

- Water for the sink and shower is from one 40 gallon tank filled with fresh mountain well water prior to your visit, and refilled once every two days of rental. In our experience 40 gallons lasts two people about 3 days of ordinary use (showers, dishes, drinking, etc).  If you need more than that, tank refills can be purchased from the "extras," with a limit of one refill per day. Refilling requires that we drive a truck near the cabin, so parked cars will need to be moved. 7 gallon standalone water totes are also available in the "extras."

- Fires: we allow fires in the woodstove and outside in the fire pit when it is legal in the county. In the summer time, fires are often banned in the county. Fires are never to be left unattended, always completely extinguished at night/when unattended, and no large bonfires. When fires are permitted, a bucket of water will also be provided. Wood bundles are available for purchase as an extra at checkout.  

- The toilet is a simple composting toilet. Wood mulch (provided) is added in on top of your business and it produces no smell when used correctly. Instructions are provided. We will swap out the bin as necessary. 

- A trash can is included in the cabin.

We hope you enjoy your stay and love this location as much as we do!

I absolutely loved my experience. Every detail of the cabin is so unique and thoughtful. It is very remote, but I happen to have cell service just 5 minutes down the road. I stayed with my pup and we hiked around in the area and watched the sunset over a beautiful canyon. The coyotes were active and pretty loud all night, which kept my dog up, but I didn't mind :) Added to the experience! There was a dusting of snow (early April) but the wood stove heated up the cabin very quickly. I will definitely be back, a very magical place.

It was heaven. Out in the middle of the garden of eden. The acoustics were amazing when I played my crystal singing bowls. The host was friendly and informative. I will return!

It was so peaceful staying at the Snug Shack. Tucked away in the trees, it feels like you are truly off the grid! Complete with all the simple luxuries, like the awesome hot water outdoor shower. Our stay was even better than expected. Thank you so much for sharing your land!

Wonderful stay. A lot of love went into Snug Shack. If your looking for a unique, semi remote, and beautiful place to stay out in nature then this is your spot. My husband and I enjoyed our night stay and hope to come back. The outdoor shower was the best!

The Snug Shack was peaceful. It was so quiet and calm its as if time slowed down (in a good way). The outside shower was probably my favorite part. Andy was also very nice and welcoming. Great little spot.

Excellent place to spend some time and lay our heads. We'll certainly keep their cabin in mind for future trips.

The Snug Shack was a perfect place to stay on our drive down the 97. It wasn’t too long of a detour from the main road but felt completely secluded and peaceful. It was smoky so we really appreciated that there was an air filter in the cabin. We loved the details and the creativity that went into the place, from the mason jar pendant lights to the hand painted signs on the property. By far our favorite part was the outdoor shower in the trees. We hope to come back to the Snug Shack again soon!

So beautiful! Very private, quiet, and peaceful. The space that Andy built is gorgeous, thoughtful, and just a labor of love. You can really feel it.
