The recycled cabin was built over the course of two years, all with recycled materials or from trees from around the property. It has a king bed and enough solar power to play vinyl records and light your way in the night.

Staying at this cabin was a truly magical experience. Secluded away in a corner of the forest, there was a stream near by and a waterfall only a short 5 min hike away. The cabin was decorated with LED lights, inside and out, tiki torches and Christmas lights that lit up the site in the nighttime. There’s no shower but there’s a large tub right outside the cabin, with fairy lights forming an arch above. The tub could be filled up with water from the stream and heated by making a larger fire in the fire pit. Not only was it adorable on the outside, but also on the rustic inside of the cabin. The record player with a variety of records on the side was a nice touch. It hooked up to a speaker outside so you could be cooking on the grill and listening to a Led Zeppelin record at the same time. To get upstairs you had to climb up some steep stairs holding onto a rope (which totally added to the experience:). This king size bed was one of the comfiest I had ever slept in, and with a window right by, you could look out and see the deep forest at any time. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, an escape from reality, in a secluded woodland environment this is the perfect place! It’s obvious a lot of work went into building this place and there was much attention to detail. From the little beaded decorations hanging outside, to the hammocks, to the carved wooden seats, to the liquor bottle torches. This whimsical cabin throws you into another land and time. My boyfriend and I extremely enjoyed staying here and I highly recommend it to couples and smaller families. Thanks again! (Even the outhouse was cute!)

This cabin was even better than what we expected. The photos just don’t do justice for this beautiful hidden gem. We arrived later in the day but there were no issues checking in. Upon arrival we quickly found ourselves comfortable with the surroundings of the property. We were extremely surprised how comfortable and clean the cabin was as well. I would definitely recommend this cabin to a music buff, as the record collection is perfect for the setting and the sound system is awesome inside and out the cabin! Another key enjoyment to the cabin was the outdoor hot tub which is heated by the fire. This was the perfect way to unwind after a long day of exploring. All in all this cabin exceeded our expectations and had us wishing we booked a longer stay! I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for the perfect escape!

We had an amazing time here. The cabin was cosy, the record player (+great records) was a brilliant extra, and the whole setup - fire pit, grill, stream nearby, river a short walk away - made for exactly the kind of switch-off we were looking for. The area around is beautiful too. Highly recommended. (We had our six-year-old daughter with us, and she loved it too.)

This is a great place to unplug. The hosts are warm, friendly and attentive. The cabin is full of nice surprises such as the LP collection and kitchenette. The whole place is wonderful, the river and waterfalls are beautiful and only an easy short walk away. In a word, a gem!

The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cabin is fantastic, it has everything you need. We took a camping stove to save us the hassle of building a fire every time we cooked. The waterfall and the river are so beautiful and they are so close by, that we went every day. A great retreat, close to the city and still you can unplug yourself. The only minor downside is that you can hear the road from the campsite.

There isn’t a bad thing to say about this place. The cabin is adorable, comfortable and private. The site is amazing and all the work the owners have put into it will have you in awe. The hot tub fills with fresh creek water and can even be heated by the fire pit! So relaxing. The surrounding area has a hiking path out to the waterfall, such a cool place to hang out. The hosts were gracious and down to earth, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay.
