This was a last minute reservation for us, Dan was very accommodating and quick to respond to messages! Thanks so much for providing wood for the fire pit!

The property was remote, yet accessible and convenient. Being the only campers the huge fire pit and on site spring water were real nice ammenities. On top of that, Dan was a a superb host! With Rangely Lake, the AT, Saddleback, Sugarloaf, and the Bigelow range not too far away, there were too many hiking and watersport options to complete in one trip. Will definitely be looking to stay the next trip to the area!

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a little hard to find at first but we loved the view of the mountains and the incredible stars at night! Nice private campsite with good views and an outhouse.

We loved Dan’s property. There was a small misunderstanding when booking the site but Dan was very quick to accommodate our needs. Dan’s land is truly the perfect base camp if you plan on hiking saddleback or exploring around Rangley. It’s nestled in the woods so was super quiet with beautiful views. Dan provided excellent directions which made it very easy to find!

Rustic Off-Grid Glamping
Dan’s cabin was perfect for a spontaneous trip north from RI and a very last minute booking. Though the cabin is rustic, we had everything we needed to feel comfortable and at peace. The view is simply stunning, the bed was comfortable, there was wood for the fire pit + wood burning stove, sheets and towels for the bed, dishes, dish soap, propane for the stove, and a battery for some lights. The composting pit toilet is in a clean and private structure that doesn’t feel cramped and has absolutely no smell thanks to the ample sawdust provided. We brought in a gallon of drinking water for the night and supplemented with the spring water for washing. There is a water container out on the back deck that can be filled at the spring and left to warm in the sun, or you can heat some water on the stove (you just need to go outside to turn on the propane and remember to turn it off when you leave). There was even some ground coffee to get us through checkout, as well as some small bags to carry out our trash. We would definitely book again and plan to spend some more time in the area! Would be even more comfortable if we had actually planned ahead or packed, but the fact that we had a great time with just our gas station toothbrushes and a gallon of poland spring sure says a lot! I think our dog had the best time of all and absolutely did not want to leave.

If you follow dans directions you will find this hidden gem tucked away high above the tree tops overlooking the most gorgeous view you can see! It was perfect. Everything we needed it to be and we even weathered a massive storm. The fresh spring water in the back was the icing on the cake. Thanks Dan!
