Welcome to the writers cabin. Tucked away in the woods behind an 1890’s farmhouse and bordering the Saint Croix River. The cabin has a sleeping loft with a queen memory foam mattress and cozy bedding. Two burner propane cooktop and pump sink along with all you need to cook. Hike the half mile down to the river and explore nearby Taylor’s falls. Sit out under the stars by the campfire, cozy up in the sleeping loft, and enjoy a quiet getaway in the beautiful Saint croix River valley.  This listing can be booked along with my other listing "Wilder Bell tent" for bigger groups. 

The Space: The Writers Cabin is a small pine cabin with a sleeping loft, built in sofa that doubles as another single bed, and a built in dining area.  There is a two burner propane cooktop, as well as a pump sink for doing dishes or water, and the kitchen is equipped with basic cooking needs as well as dishes and utensils. Coffee and French press are provided along with olive oil, salt and pepper. The cabin is solar powered. There is also a hammock that comes with the cabin. There is a composting toilet. 

Guest Access: Guests can pull directly up to the cabin and park right by it.  The river is just a 1/2 mile hike down, and there is a federal campground at the river as well with picnic tables, fire pits, toilets and water access.

Other things to note: 

We do have dogs and chickens at our farm. Please keep dogs away from the chicken coop and run area. 

The cabin sits back behind our farmhouse, but feels incredibly private and has a gorgeous view.  

Frequently Asked questions: Can I check in early? I do my best to accommodate early check ins, but if the cabin is booked back to back I may not be able to. 

Do you rent kayaks or canoes? We don't rent, but there are some great places nearby that do! We highly recommend getting out on or in the river! 

Can you recommend places to visit or to eat?  I'd love to!  Just Ask!  

Is there water in the cabin? Yes, there is water in the pump sink for doing dishes and drinking (not purified drinking water).

Is there electricity?  The cabin is solar powered. Just keep in mind that you don't want to drain the battery by leaving things plugged in too long or leaving lights on. 

Can I bring my dog? We do accept well behaved dogs! 

Is there a campfire area? Yes, we do have a campfire area and we supply wood for it.

Is there a fridge? 

No fridge in the cabin, so we recommend just packing your food in a cooler.  One can be supplied if you don't have one. 

What is the bathroom situation? 

There is a composting camp toilet in the outhouse that we ask you to add pine shavings to.  Composting bags can be changed out as needed and put in the container by the outhouse.

Alison and her family are amazing hosts! I was nervous about what to expect as I was the first person to leave a review. Alison is so personable and was upfront about a few things that are a “work in progress” on the cabin and it’s amenities. She reachable for questions but also gave us space to unwind and enjoy which was perfect!

The cabin is cute, cozy and comfortable! I loved the tongue and groove wood paneling and fresh flowers on the table were a sweet touch!

I spent the weekend by the bonfire and took some time to walk down the trail to the river’s edge and enjoyed all of the fresh air.

I 100% recommend The Writer’s Cabin for anyone looking to get away. This was the perfect mix of camping and comfort! I’m already looking to book again for a longer stay!
