Gorgeous bare bones cabin perched on a hill with a wonderful private feeling.

For the record, there are no mattresses (bring sleeping pads) and the water source is a good quarter mile away. The parking lot is nearly a mile's walk, but with a good cart or sled you can bring extra comfy stuff
and cooking equipment to turn it into more of a glamping experience.

Such a comfy and cozy cabin that was very easily accessible with a quick hike in.
Comfortably fit 4 adults and 3 dogs, but could hold more.

The woodstove worked really well at keeping the cabin toasty.
It was also pleasantly stocked with all sorts of helpful accessories (hand sanitizer, already split kindling, sleeping pads, etc)

It was a peaceful and beautiful stay. Well insulated so we stayed warm through the night. Dogs really enjoyed all the exercise and cozy naps!

Great cabin, but pros/con

Pros: located near “the barn” which is a connector point for the long, major trails; easy trek back to parking if leaving after dark (with headlamps); located high atop a bluff; great views/sunset; great size for small group; impressively built camp.

Con: We had a bad experience despite many lovely experiences at Hidden Valley. The temperature was around zero, so that would have challenged any cabin and stove. However, the stove, even though very well installed and new, is quite small by comparison with the size of the cabin and the height of the roof. Even after two hours of a fire quickly starting and going well, we were very cold and left.

Summary: I would go back to this cabin in spring, summer, fall. It was evidently built with care and is very well located within the preserve. Kudos to those who built it, just a caution regarding winter usage in very low temps.

What a beautiful new cabin! Thoughtfully constructed and such a cozy space that also has an open, airy feel. It was easy to keep warm with the great wood stove and all the firewood provided. It's off the main path, up a good hill, and has elevated views through the trees of a valley below. Listened to owls (and other unknown creatures of the wild) all night. We appreciate that dogs are allowed, we brought ours and they loved it too. We brought our 4 year old, and used the chairs provided to make the loft safe for her--it was really nice to not have to worry about keeping her warm enough. Although the listing said potable water and a kettle on the stove, there was neither, so bring your own.
