We live on the top of the property separated by a mature aspen grove, an easy walk from both cabins. Cabins are both in Ponderosa Forest. Our property is along side the FS Rd. (3910) portion of an over 50 mile trail system that winds through the Warner Mountains (where we live) and into N CA. Our property is over an underground river and we provide Artesian Spring water from our property that is so pure as to not require any chemicals (year round). We are at 5700 ft. The outdoor shower is seasonal, and available only when outdoor temps are consistently above freezing. We've lost a few outdoor showers in the learning process on this! There is a large kettle for heating water for sponge baths in Fall-Winter. Squirrelville is available all year long, with cross country skiing right out the door and Warner Ski Hill with lift 5 miles W of us, for great downhill skiing.

Squirrelville is just incredible. Everyone should experience it for themselves! You leave feeling relaxed and recharged. The hosts are wonderful people who truly think of every little thing! Forever grateful for this trip! We would absolutely love to come back! We left a little piece of our heart here for sure. Thank you!!

This place was perfect. My friend and I wanted a place for a quiet getaway and this was just that. We holed up for the weekend and were so cozy. We kept the fire going and enjoyed listening to Cam’s music. His dog Suki even came to keep us company one night, she was the sweetest thing ever! Plenty of firewood to keep the place warm, everything you need to cook with, lots of music, books, games, puzzles, art supplies, etc. The electric stove pulls a lot of power so you can’t use both sides at once, it takes a little creativity to make meals that need multiple pots/pans, but definitely doable. We kept the fire roaring and we were able to use that stove to slowly heat things up/keep them warm. We wanted to make cookies but were unable to get the toaster oven to stay on, so we cooked those on the fireplace, too, it just took a while! Would definitely like to come back again sometime. Thank you, Cam!

Brittany and Hannah were a perfect fit for what we offer here. They were happy to be where they were, adventurous (there are lots of adventures from here), friendly, considerate, and good communicators. What else could a host ask for. The place was left very clean and they sped our cleanup with their thoughtfulness. Hopefully their next visit will have our well-known great weather (they were here for a big storm front that passed through)! We look forward to their return!

How I want for Christmas is .... staying at the Squirrelville cabin!
Can and Christine were the unexpected highlight of our trip in the cabin. Their warm welcome and passion for the Oregon outdoors made our stay even more special. Their cabin is super homy with lots of boardgames and books to unwind. Comfy bed and couches, Christmas lights, hot chocolate, and hikes in the snow. Really, there was no need for anything else.
We'd definitely come back to see the wild flowers.

Cam was a fabulous host and I had such a great time staying at the cabin. The communication was super easy and quick and I found both the location and the cabin to be much better than the photos. The location is ideal - private and peaceful but not too remote and easily accessible with a passenger vehicle. It made for a great base camp while I spent a couple of days exploring the nearby forests/hikes. Cam was extremely helpful and gave great recommendations for nearby day trips. I felt lucky to have found such a great place to stay and the night sky was truly something else!! Would absolutely recommend to stay there!

Quintessential cabin in the woods

Cam and Christine's wonderful cabins truly provide the "quintessential" cabin experience in a very interesting part of Oregon not many people know about. The Oregon Outback is high desert territory, with few people, lots of critters and interesting vistas. Less than an hour away is Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge, which features much wildlife, and ! stunning ! sunsets. This whole area, perhaps due to the elevation, features amazing sunsets. While on my way to, or while at the Refuge, I saw an immature bald eagle, a golden eagle, a coyote stalking mice, and a small group of mule deer silhouetted against the persimmon sunset and silvered lake as I exited the Refuge.

Cam and Christine are gracious hosts, and are onsite, through a screen of trees, for any questions that may arise. Be sure to check out the CDs of Cam's amazing original "Oregon" music, a wonderful, therapeutic balm for the soul.

One other thing to note is that within a couple hundred miles, there are THREE hotsprings -- Surprise Valley near Cedarville, California, Hunter's Hotsprings in Lakeview, and a natural rock-walled "soakin' hole" at the Hart Mountain Refuge, so if you have a little time for your trip, you could do a hotspring "tour."

DO note that Squirrelville has no internal plumbing, no bathroom or running water.... The larger cabin, Whitetail, does...

Campbell is extremely hospitable & lovely. Our stay here was private, quiet, & everything we were looking for & then some! The only thing we would have changed is how long we would’ve stayed because how in love we fell with the cozy cabin & the nature surrounding it. Already planning our next stay here!

Enjoyed meeting hosts Cam and Christine. Squirrelville is HipCamp deluxe. Hot outdoor shower. No indoor plumbing, FYI. Fresh spring water provided. Enjoyed a quiet morning reading on the pasture side bench. Good freshly paved cycling road, as well as lots of gravel and dirt mountain bike roads. Note that the Oregon Timber Trail section near cabin is unmaintained. Would be good for cross country skiing. though.

This place is a slice of heaven. It’s absolutely a gem. I’m saying this at the risk of making this place a bit less exclusive, but I honestly don’t care about that and want other nature lovers to experience the beauty of the cabin and the utterly sweet hospitality of the owners. The cabin literally is equipped with everything possible to give you a remote, relaxing, tranquil and cozy feeling. The kitchen is gorgeous, with a vintage stove and fridge. The outdoor shower is amazing. The views are magnificent. We drove to Hart mountain, dipped in the hot springs and just enjoyed walking around the property. This part of Oregon is beyond beautiful. Last but not the least, Cam and Christine are the greatest hosts we have ever met. What a pleasure!

We loved Poornima and Gautham's stay with us! We felt like we'd met younger kindred spirits. They were excellent communicators, positive, curious, open, and adventuresome! They're also dog people like we are! We already have talked about their possible return this Winter! A wonderful couple!

I love Squirrelville! The cabin is as cosy as can be, a bit kitschy with all the different eras meeting each other. It is well stocked with tea, games, books, and music. We slept soundly, so soundly that apparently we slept right through some coyote noises! The outdoor shower was fun, and the outhouse fulfilled its function (what more can you ask for?). Lastly, Cam and Christine were lovely hosts. Loved hearing about Cam's career in music composition and performance and speaking in French with Christine. I encourage others to come explore the Oregon Outback!
