With the entire world going insane, covid-19 being blown way out of proportion, and every newscast seeming like paid programming for political posturing, my wife and I wanted to unplug for a week to get away from the madness. Mark's cabin seemed like the perfect place to leave this crazy world, and WA state, behind for a while. The experience far exceeded our expectations. The cabin is very nicely outfitted and easy to keep clean. The setting is breathtaking and private. We spent our days hiking and doing all the little chores that come with off-grid living. I enjoyed chopping wood every day and my wife loved pumping water by hand. I assembled some impromptu benches at the fire pit and stocked it with chopped wood for the next visitor to use. It was easy to imagine a simpler time before the internet, political violence, and insanity ruled the world. Every morning at daybreak we were greeted by the sweetest little deer family. The fawns periodically frolicked in the meadow west of the cabin while mama kept a watchful eye on us. We walked down to the little waterfall at Gooseberry Creek, hiked up deep into the trees, and hunted for Ralph's Abandoned Cabin, though we never found it. We had so much fun that it was very hard to leave. We will definitely be booking it again next year. I would suggest bringing a firearm of some sort. We never saw any large predators, but there is plenty of evidence of them everywhere. The only time I felt the need to strap on my rifle was when we hiked into the trees. The forest undergrowth is thick and there are fallen trees all over the place, so I felt more comfortable "packing some heat" during those hikes. The main trail behind the cabin is cleared and much easier to walk down, but we felt the need to venture deep into the thick woods. We heard a wolf howl at the full moon one night, which was both amazing and bone chilling. On one hike we found a wad of black bear fur on a tree. The experience tops any vacation we've ever taken. Mark has done a great job of providing basic modern conveniences, like lights and propane cooking, without ruining the old world feel of the cabin. I highly recommend the Meadow View Cabin to anyone who needs a break from technocracy and blue state tyranny. This is the remedy you seek.
