Adrienne and Morgan's cabin is wonderful. They have thoughtfully considered every detail. The hammock hooks in the cabin were so fun. The property is absolutely gorgeous and a very special place. Tons of rare plants and a wonderful trail that leads right down to the creek. The cabin is secluded and private. I also appreciated their use of natural cleaners and essential oil blends to deter bugs in the outhouse. We will definitely be back!
The location was fantastic, very private on 500 acres and the cabin was clean and big enough for four people. They provided us with firewood and greeted us as well provided us with hiking information and suggested trails.
The Rustic Moonshine Cabin was absolutely idyllic! Set deep back in the woods, it is very private and serene, and the perfect place to get away. We were fortunate enough to take advantage of the “glamping package” and had everything we needed. The cabin was quaint and clean, and had lots of windows to keep it cool in the summer. The wood stove would be perfect for an autumn or winter adventure. The property is beautiful and has trails for hiking and exploring. There is also a short walk to the creek and our dog loved it, too. We look forward to making another trip soon.
This was a wonderful camp with wonderful hosts. A relaxing home away from home. Adrienne and Morgan go above and beyond to make sure you have anything and everything you could need and were great at educating me about the environment. Thank you for the wonderful weekend!
Beautiful secluded cabin
Wonderful hosts and a beautiful secluded cabin with everything you could need. Pet friendly and super cozy. Short hike to the creek, had fun looking through the rocks for fossils. We will definitely be staying here again, thank you again!
