MoonRise Off-Grid Cabin - 170 Acres
Overall we had a great trip! The moonrise cabin was super cute and the land was beautiful, with great opportunities to hike. Unfortunately, it was very cold this weekend and the heater in the cabin was not working. When we contacted the host about the broken heater there was never any response. I have done plenty of camping and don’t mind the cold, but for the amount of money spent for the cabin, I expected better.

Be mindful of heat and hidden fees
The cabin was super cute, but our trip coincided with a horrible heat wave (like 110+ heat index so not just hot). Since the cancellation fee is strict we decided to give it a shot, but the cabin just isn’t equipped for that kind of heat and our dog was struggling so we had to leave hours after arriving. I reached out to see if there was any way to put the time we had left for future dates when it might be livable, but our message was ignored. I also had to venmo a pet fee after I paid through Hipcamp and originally got a message saying I needed to go through some external 3rd party background check which also would have cost extra. None of that was in this was in the listing (at the time of booking) so beware of hidden fees.

Beautiful but MANY TICKS
The cabin and the surrounding area are beautiful, and we really appreciated the bug-free kitchen area. However, we had two problems that somewhat spoiled our trip. First, the hosts communication was awful. The listing says guests will be emailed check-in instructions the day of their booking, and we never received them. We messaged the host several times (with other questions as well), wanting to wait to head out on our trip until we had instructions to make sure we wouldn't be stranded. The host finally responded after several hours to our other questions, but NEVER gave us check-in instructions despite us following up. We decided to start the drive anyway so we at least had a chance of staying for the majority of our booking, and were thankfully able to get inside the cabin without instructions. However, the unnecessary stress from the lack of communication was deeply frustrating and set the tone for much of our stay. Second, be aware that there are TONS of ticks on the property. I was shocked that no other reviews mentioned this. Despite our precautions, I returned from our hike on the peregrine falcon trail with over 30 seed ticks and spent HOURS removing them. We ramped up our tick precautions after that, but I still got ticks virtually every time I made the very short walk to the bathroom I found at least one new tick on my ankles. In short, if you stay here, be prepared to be itchy for a week after.

We had fun
Very secluded, cute little bungalow. Great view, quiet, private, wide open sky. Screened in porch with kitchen was nice. Relaxing pond to swim with the dog.

Great little cabin. It was the perfect get away for our anniversary trip. The grounds offered great views and was very peaceful. The fishing was great too. We will be back.
