This was a custom log home built in the early 2000's. It has been updated over the years to make it more livable year round. This site is on a seasonal road so travel in and out can be impeded at times due to weather or external forces, such as tree falls, wash outs, etc. This is a self sufficient Homestead in the making. Our garden and fruit tree orchards are in their infancy stage. We just opened our second site, the Acorn Retreat cabin. The Acorn Retreat cabin includes a hot tub and other amenities, including a brand new bouchee outhouse. Also a new edition, our timber framed chicken coop to house our 13 laying hens and Julio, our loving rooster. We are always working on our property, so please come back to visit to see what we have added.
We strive to make every place better than we found it and hope our guests will do the same. This is a zen, quiet place to heal, reflect and refill your cup of life:)

I've already recommended this place to friends! The location is awesome for launching into hikes. So much to do in the area. We stayed 2 nights and needed more!

We had a wonderfully, relaxing weekend at Acorn Retreat, the directions and signs made it easy to find, even at night and the ability to hike from the campsite to Hogback Mountain was unexpected but wonderful! April and her sons were so lovely and helpful and would love to come back someday for a longer stay!

My partner and I spent 4 wonderful nights with April and could not recommend her space more!
Acorn Retreat gave us the chance to relax and unwind we both desperately needed. The cabin itself is beautiful, cozy, and very intentionally decorated. Although close to the hosts’ house, we never felt intruded upon or that we didn’t have the privacy we wanted. The beds are very comfortable and allowed us to sleep well and wake up refreshed. The outhouse is immaculately clean and pleasant to use. The wi-fi works well and allowed us to stream music and watch a movie on a night there was a beautiful thunderstorm. Although we didn’t use the hot tub or have a chance to sample some farm fresh eggs, we were able to feed and visit with the chickens. Our time there really gave us everything we had hoped it would.
This place really is way out in the woods. April provided great directions when we booked and we had no trouble finding it at all. Her son Zack is charming and intelligent and full of wonderful suggestions. We look forward to staying at Acorn Retreat again in the future!
