Eat dinner under the stars. The Watkins Place is private & secluded with access to the hiking trails at the McCully Heritage Project.  It is surrounded by about an acre of open area, perfect for pitching a few tents.  This is nice place for a family or group campout where "non-campers" can come along and have a bed to sleep in!

We had a fantastic time at the cabin. It was well off the beaten path yet connected to trail all across the property. The hosts were fantastic, gave us great directions, answered all my questions, and even provided all the firewood we needed for our stay. The cabin was clean, the kitchen and bathroom were well equipped with all the utensils, bedding and towels we needed. It was a fairly warm weekend and the cabin is equipped with a window AC which definitely came in handy. We're already planning our next trip back.

It was perfect for our needs. Nana and the baby slept inside. The 4 year old slept out in the tent with his dad and Pop Pop. Mom had the house to herself in the city.
FYI. There are two separate bedrooms. And two ACs. There is a microwave. There is both a grill and campfire.

Extremely private and quiet. Beautiful setting with trees, wildflowers, and deer. Do bring mosquito repellent even though they aren’t bad.
