We bought this property in 2012 and have built several buildings and forged paths throughout the 32 acres. Our road is part of the North Country Trail, a footpath stretching over 4,600 miles from Middlebury in central Vermont to Lake Sakakawea State Park in central North Dakota. While tearing down the existing house, we constructed two bedrooms in the pole barn for a quick living space. Once settled in the pole barn, we a built a small log cabin with already felled timbers from the local woods, except for the box frame which was purchased from the local Amish. Prior to building our permanent log cabin home, this small cabin was our camp site and is now being rented to people that want to relax and enjoy the outdoors. In the middle of the woods, we created a campground to be enjoyed and on the North side of our property is a tree line between two fields that is a great small camper/tent camping spot.

Ann and Mac's Cabin is a wonderful quiet get away. The Cabin is rustic with a wood burning stove for heat and cooking. Highly recommend staying here.

Simple Life in the Woods
Ann and Mac have a gorgeous property; it’s the epitome of peace and simplicity. There are several trails to enjoy that run by the river, the fields, etc. Mac is very friendly and Ann is super sweet. I can not recommend this property enough!

Our family had a beautiful time staying at the cabin at the edge of the woods. The cabin was clean and well kept. The area was relaxing and quiet, which was a nice change of pace coming from a noisy city. The land was beautiful to walk around and explore. It was nice to sit around the big campfire and hear the chirping of the birds. The night sky was perfect for stargazing on a clear night. Ann and Mac were the most gracious hosts. The camp fire was already going when we arrived and they helped us carry all our things to the cabin. They gave us a thorough tour of the property and were very kind to share some of their garden vegetables and fresh eggs. We really felt welcomed and that made for a very relaxing weekend. Will definitely go back.

We had a lovely long weekend at the Cabin. We really appreciated Ann & Mac hospitality and kindness. Ann's hot pepper jelly was incredible, thanks again! They were very accommodating and full of local resources. The rustic cabin has electrical and a decent kitchen for a "semi off-grind". It was exactly what we were looking for. We hope to be back in the winter time!

Everything you want and more
The only word the summarizes our time staying at Mac and Ann's is perfect! Their property is truly a labor of love, something that is clearly visible everywhere you look. We had so much fun exploring the different walking trails with our dog, sitting around the camp fire and exploring the property. What really set our time apart was Mac and Ann! From letting us pick from their garden, giving us fresh eggs, to teaching us a little about homesteading, I was blown away by their kindness and hospitality. It was thanks to them that a great experience turned into an magical one. We are already looking forward to coming back!

Amazing self sustained property and gracious hosts. Ann and her husband where eager to help with anything and everything. The property is full of wild life from deer, to rabbits and birds, oh he’s and mosquitoes you can deff get carried away if you forget the spray! DONT FORGET THE SPRAY! We made some amazing food around the fire and the pups enjoyed a swim in the river that is a short walk from camp. Overall awesome overnighter wish we had more time.

We stayed at Ann's larger rustic Cabin and everything was what I expected and more. The Cabin does have electricity which was nice but I loved that everything was basic and what I was looking for on my vacation. The property is beautiful and nicely wooded, I went for many walks through the trails. Ann and her Husband gave us a tour of the property when we arrived to get us familiar of the surroundings. I highly recommend staying here if your looking for a Rustic Cabin for your trip!

We had the best time on our stay at Ann and Mac’s cabin. We were amazed by how much care, attention to detail, and craftsmanship they put into the cabin and their farm! Mac was super friendly and helpful and even gave us some fresh eggs. We hope to come back again soon!

Screw work, let's get away
We loved the wood burning stove and brick work. Absolutely beautiful and his wife built that cabin themselves; true talent! It was nice and cozy for my boyfriend and I. We played chess, yahtzee, monopoly all while kicking back. Thanks for the eggs! Your chickens and kitty are awesome

Incredibly crafted cabin, with everything you need. Perfect for the 4 of us, with plenty of space to sleep and prep food, and lounge in the evening. Wood stove and cast iron supplies were terrific. Can’t wait to come back!

Perfect little getaway
What a great place ! Mac and Ann are super friendly and I really enjoyed meeting them both. My trip there was short and I will certainly be coming back. I camped there on a cold day but was able to keep the cabin nice and warm with a small Little buddy heater. The structure is very well built and didnt let much of the cold inside. The fire pit area is AWESOME and Mac had plenty of firewood ready to go. the cabin is just a short walk from the parking spot and they even has a sled for me to get my gear to the camping area. Overall super great people on a great piece of land. Cany say enough good things about my experience. THANKS SO SO MUCH !!!! Keith

Awesome cabin in a beautiful setting with thoughtful hosts. My brother and I spent a weekend here and enjoyed walking through the woods. We loved sitting by and cooking on the wood stove in the provided cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens. The cabin has everything you need and nothing you don’t - it is rustic, but that’s exactly what we were after. Would definitely stay here again!

Mom-Daughter Winter Cabin Camping
The cabin is wonderful! The details of the building and the woodwork were amazing and the contruction was incredibly well thought out. This was also true of the latrine. It was one of the nicest I have ever been in. There was plenty of room for the four of us. Ann and her husband lit the fire in the stove prior to our arrival and met us to show us where everything was and how to use things. The land is beautiful and we enjoyed our hike. The beds were all comfortable and the stove kept the building reasonably warm (it was in the upper 20s overnight). We had a wonderful time!

Lovely winter time relaxation
Our stay at the cabin was absolutely incredible. We decided for the new year that we needed a little r&r away from all hustle and bustle; this was just what the doctor had ordered. Ann and Mac were delighted guests and had everything we could have needed and more! We didn't get the chance to meet Ann but Mac was wonderful and full of information. I could've talked with him for hours! The cabin and surrounding area is just breathtaking, especially after a fresh coat of snow. We enjoyed watching birds out of the front window, playing and living on their pets (we had a chance to meet one of the dogs and one of the cats), sitting on the front porch at night with some music playing and the flickering light of oil lanterns. We will definitely be back many many times!

My stay at the cabin on the edge of the woods was great! It was a very relaxing weekend. The property is beautiful. They were prompt to answer any questions I had before the trip. When I arrived they were very friendly and gave my friend and I details of the property. Mac was even friendly enough to help us with our gear! We loaded it up on the back of his gator and he drove it down. They had the wood stove and a fire going outside upon our arrival! The cabin was beautiful, I can't believe they built this property on their own, they clearly put a lot of love into making it! The cabin had many essentials: some pans, cooking utensils. There were not any plates or bowls available, so something you will need to bring on your own. The outhouse was the cleanest outhouse I've ever seen and didn't smell at all! The wood stove kept us toasty all night as we were staying in the middle of December. Our first morning there we woke up to Mac already building a fire outside for us as well as bringing down more fire wood. We sat outside and shared some nice conversations with him. He suggested a hike at Lost Nation, apart of the North country trail. It was a beautiful hike and a great recommendation! Also, their pets are super friendly and make the cabin even more cozy. Their grey barn cat Adrienne, was super friendly and such a lover. She recieved many pets and snuggles while we were there! Our stay was a great experience and something I would love to do again!

Quiet and simple cabin in woods
I stayed two nights at Ann and Mac's cabin in late November. I was looking for some time away and unplugged and the cabin was the perfect place for it. From the moment you arrive at the property, you can see the amount of intention and detail that Mac and Ann have put into everything. They are wonderfully hospitable hosts; Ann was laid up with a recent foot surgery so Mac greeted me at the driveway, showed me where to park, helped me transport some of my gear to the cabin, was quick with recommendations of local places to visit, and had the fire going in the cabin's woodstove when I arrived. The cabin itself is lovely, tidy, and simple. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils (but no plates so make sure to pack your own), shelves are stocked with local area maps, field guides, and board games. The wood stove kept the cabin comfortable (not hot, as the evening temps were low 30sand 20s) and was lovely for light cooking and making tea. I never used the lofted area but found the lower level comfortable and plenty spacious for myself and my dog. Next to the cabin is an equally beautifully crafted outhouse with composting toilet and a small solar shower. The land around is lovely, with extensive trails through the woods and along the river. On our walks, I saw deer, rabbits, heron, and beaver trees, and not another human soul. It was a wonderful time of peace and simplicity and I look forward to returning!

Peaceful rustic retreat!
Ann and Mac are generous hosts and we feel so lucky to have found their place. The cabin is a work of art! We drove in and were immediately greeted by Mac and the dogs. Parking is very close, trail is outside your door, very clean private outhouse, wood stove, lanterns, and everything else you need for a comfortable stay are at arms reach. Bring your camping essentials to supplement what is provided, just in case. We can’t wait to come back and spend more time. Thanks for sharing it with us!!
