In the heart of the forest, nestled among towering trees and surrounded by breathtaking views, a humble cabin. It’s the place that evokes tranquility and solitude, offering a refuge from the chaos of the outside world. What makes this cabin truly captivating is its unique location, obscured by the presence of a running sawmill. Come enjoy watching as it takes you back in time. This sawmill is unlike any bandmill, boasting a massive 4 and a half-foot circular saw, a relic from the years between 1935 and 1945. Its rhythmic, melodic hum fills the air, blending seamlessly with the symphony of nature. The captivating noise created an enchanting ambiance, luring those in search of solace and beauty. We run our mill with recycled cooking oil and a diesel blend. Behind the sawmill, nature thrives harmoniously. Wildlife painted the surroundings with vibrant colors, as birds filled the sky with their elegant dances and curious squirrels scurried about, their fluffy tails adding a playful touch to the lush landscape. The cabin is a sanctuary where one can witness the wonders of nature, just a walk away from the roaring sawmill. Come check out a piece of preserved history all while enjoying pristine wooded views! Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in history. Enjoy the power of the circular saw, a symbol of the immense progress and craftsmanship of yesteryears. Together, the cabin, the forest, and the sawmill form a perfect harmony — a testament to the beauty of nature entwined with mankind's desire to create. It offers a glimpse into a world where modernity meets tradition, where breathtaking views and the symphony of the sawmill entice all who venture here to enjoy.

Cubby 1
I enjoyed staying at the Cubby. It is nested in the corner of a cabin campsite so we were able to get privacy. The cabin was spacious and clean and had a coffee machine (and yes there is electricity in the cabin!!). There was a bathroom and shared shower with hot water on the other side of the campsite. There is no cell signal whatsoever in nearby towns and the campsite so make sure you download offline map and confirm the address with Connie. The address Hipcamp told me turned out to be not the address where Cubby was located in my case. There is Wifi on the campsite.

One Night at the Cubby
I loved the remote atmosphere that was still an easy drive from "main roads". I enjoyed seeing deer close up on my walks and listening to the singling of the frogs and peepers at night. These things and the sounds of the nearby Elk Creek lulled me into one if the most relaxed, best sleeps I've had in a long time. My hosts were easy to communicate with, and I was very appreciative of the campground area wifi that enable me to contact them if needed, since cell service is problematic in the area.

Nice but description unclear.
A better description with accurate pictures of the cabin and its surroundings. The cabin was fine for our use and we would even stay there again in the future. Also we were to understand by the description and message from the owner that this cabin was more isolated than it actually was. It was about 30 feet or so from other occupied cabins, not Secluded at all.

Sawmill Woodzie Cabin
Our stay was exactly as we expected, and everything we hoped for. We had the misfortune of mostly rainy and unseasonably, cold weather, but the cabin kept us dry and the woodstove kept things toasty. We were happy to have water or electricity, as we were looking for simplicity. Note that the pictures show show a tiny kitchenette, but it’s not functional right now, as the listing correctly indicates. It’s probably easiest to bring gallons of drinking water and to fill up containers for dishwashing by the hose at the side of the host house. This is a rustic cabin in the woods. You should expect to see a bug here and a cobweb there; this is part of the experience!

Loved this cozy little cubby. The view off the balcony is awesome and even though it rained one night it was serene and beautiful listening to the rain and watching it through the clear parts of the roof. Also would like to say that the hosts are amazing! They were so nice and accommodating we would definitely recommend and we will be back!

Sawmill Woodzie Cabin
The Woodrow was perfect for what my partner and I wanted: private, cozy, and surrounded by trees. Connie sent me lots of pictures and a video to make sure we found our way to the cabin. Andy started the Woodstock for us, so the Woodzie was warm by the time we arrived. Plenty of fire wood to keep the fire going. There were so many blankets for when we struggled against our own abilities to restart the fire! The bed was so comfortable. They had candles, solar lights, and plenty of toilet paper in a cabinet by the back door for use in the composting outside toilet. Admittedly, we were vastly unprepared for the lack of running water or working stove. All of which are completely my fault! I misread and mixed up the listing for Connie and Andy’s other cabins at their camp grounds. Thankfully, they’re great hosts. The morning after we arrived, Andy came to check on us. He gave us directions to the nearby Sunoco so we could buy some water. Which led us to discover that we were so close to the World’s End state park. We had a lovely time in the forest! Thank you Connie and Andy!
