After a summer spending time at various hip camps our family decided to make one of our own and share it with the hip camp community! It is a dream come true for our family. We started out with two sites completed in 2021 and added a third spot for the 2022 season. The Shabin is the first site completed. It has been a labor of love and we are so pleased with the outcome. It boasts upcycled and repurposed materials whenever possible crafted by local tradespeople and some of our very own sweat equity! It sleeps 6-8 people including a loft space we ensured could handle adults as well as kids! The Shabin is full of windows making it feel like you’re still outside giving you views of the river and the mountains from every inch of it including windows in the loft. We made sure there was plenty of graveled and wood chipped spaces to enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family around the smokeless fire pit and created a path leading to the river as well as to the hunting and hiking lands at the back of the property. A tool shed contains tools, toys, and extras for our guests use. The Overlook is the second completed site. It is a tent site that overlooks a flowing creek and little waterfall year round. It is a mostly level 38' x 31' space nestled among the ferns and wood chipped for comfort and to reduce dust and mud. The Overlook comes stocked with a firepit, Tiki Torches, Tiki Oil, an 8 ft table, and optional camping chairs. The Romantic Retro Riverside Retreat is the newest addition. Positioned right on the Wallace river, the Retro Retreat is designed to be a romantic 60's inspired riverside getaway for Adults. From the pink Flamingos to the lovingly restored collectors Vintage 1966 Aristocrat Lo-Liner, this is a uniquely beautiful experience. We packed a lot into this awesome space from a toaster oven/coffee maker and matching Adirondack chairs next to a cozy firepit to a deluxe full size bed! For larger groups, the option to book the entire property for family gatherings or corporate or team building events is available!

The Shabin @ Wallace
River glamping
The Shabin was perfectly situated for a long weekend of hiking, grilling, and river bathing. Plenty of amenities -- "rustic" doesn't quite describe this extremely well-maintained and comfortable cabin. Electrical features allow for warmth, cooling, entertainment, refrigeration, and water pumping (dishes etc.). Would consider the other options to for glamping/camping on the property as well. Thanks Maria!

The Overlook @ Wallace
Great spot — with a 🐻 sighting!
Nestled on a dense, lush hill overlooking lots of ferns and trees. While the campsite is set just above the Shabin, we rarely heard the other guests and only interacted when we met up at the shared river (great for wading, sitting, and light swimming). Overall, great private camping. Maria was supremely communicative and helpful. The incinerating toilet was camp luxury. We did see a bear on a nearby ridge so prepare to take necessary precautions and pack up your camp when away and at night.

The Riverside Retreat @ Wallace
Very cute little place! It's wonderfully peaceful, and the cold river is delightful to dip into on a hot day. Maria is a great host, very responsive. The setup and the amenities still need a little fine-tuning but since I was the very first person to stay there I imagine all that will get sorted soon. One thing to note is that sleeping would be a little tight for two people, or for anyone tall (I'm 5'11" and could only stretch out diagonally).

The Shabin @ Wallace
The Shabin is even nicer than the pictures, well outfitted and really comfy. Never used an incinerating toilet before, it works really well. We spent a lot of time playing in the river. Unfortunately it was too low to kayak in, we had fun wading and floating and swimming. Maria was a very friendly and generous host.

The Overlook @ Wallace
Maria was so kind and very friendly. We were disappointed with the short walk described as it was very steep, and even had I brought my AWD vehicle, it would have been challenging to drive right up to the site. Also, we were anticipating that firewood would be provided as advertised but there was not true firewood. The first night we were able to use left over construction 2x4 and such but we went through that quickly and needed to add that expense to make it through the next day. I loved the nature but would have loved an easier way to get to the site with the items presented.

Our stay at The Shabin
Our stay at the Shabin was great and exactly the kind of rest and relaxation our family of four needed to end the summer. The gated entrance to the five separate lots provided us with privacy, peace and quite to hear the soothing sound of the water running by on the Wallace River. Our host Maria was awesome and has done a fantastic job setting up the Shabin with the amenities need for a wonderful ‘Glamping’ experience.
