STARGAZING + AMAZING VIEWS: Our place sits on five acres overlooking the middle fork of the Malheur River, surrounded by cattle ranches. Our nearest neighbor is about 2 miles away, we're remote, but accessible... if you don't mind a couple of miles of gravel road.

We're in a dark spot, perfect for laying out in your little yard and admiring the Milky Way in an indescribable setting. At night, the only lights visible truly are the moon and stars. Bring your telescope if you've got one!

WALL TENT: For parties larger than two, or if you just don't want to share a bed with your travelmate, you will have a wall tent (Bedroom 2) at your disposal -- decked out with cozy rugs and up to four camp cots (two oversized and two standard). Please bring bedding and towels for any guests intending to stay in the wall tent - BEDDING IS NOT PROVIDED.

COOKING & DINING: Prepare your meals in our simple, yet functional outdoor kitchen. Located on the cabin porch, the kitchen includes a prep area, dishtub, and a two burner camp stove. You also have a generously sized mini fridge right inside the cabin.

Add on our DELUXE CAMP KITCHEN* and you won't have to worry about bringing cookware, dishes, cutlery, knives, cutting boards, a can opener, a bottle opener, basic seasonings, or dish washing necessities! *Available for an additional fee of $35 payable as a Hipcamp "extra" or in cash money.

PETS: We welcome your furbabies! Please be advised that there is an additional fee of $25 per pet, payable as a Hipcamp "extra" or in good ol' American greenbacks. Please pick up after your pets and try to keep them in your area. We ask that you do not allow your pets on the furniture -- if we find that they've been allowed on the bed, we will require you to pay for the replacement of the bedding at a cost of $200.

We have one dog, an exuberant 150 pound Newfoundland named Hagrid, multiple free roaming cats, and three semi-feral children who may be outside. If you are bringing your pet(s), please contact us prior to arrival.

SHOWERING & WHATNOT: Enjoy a luxurious shower in your private outdoor shower house, complete with skylight and on-demand hot water. Towels are provided. The building also contains your fabulous composting loo.

SUSTAINABILITY: We're kinda into crunchy stuff like solar power, composting, sustainability, salvage/upcycling/recycling, and supporting local farmers - artisans - businesses. You'll find that many of the little touches on our replace reflect those values.

CHARITY IRONWORKS: If you see or hear Tom puttering around out in the blacksmith shop, you’re welcome to go over and visit. If you need gifts for the folks back home or souvenirs from your epic trip, we also have a selection of our blacksmithing and coppersmithing wares available -- just ask us and we’d be happy to show you our stock. We also offer our 3 Hour Blacksmithing Basics Workshop with Tom at a cost of $80 per person age 12+ - payable as a Hipcamp "extra" or in cash money.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE...

There IS cell phone reception here - Verizon works best and there's usually 3-4 bars of LTE.

We have lots of complimentary maps and brochures available to help you explore the local sights and cuisine. We're always happy to give recommendations to our favorite haunts.

Did we mention that we're remote?

And that the nearest grocery store is at least an hour away?

STOCK UP: Either in Vale if you're coming from the east, Burns if you're coming from the west, or John Day if you're coming from the north.

We're about 15 minutes from the Malheur National Forest, 30 minutes from Beulah Reservoir, and an hour and a half from Steens Mountain.

BE COOL: Please don't allow your pets on the beds or furniture. Please don't smoke in the cabin OR in the wall tent. Please don’t take the bedding or pillows out of the cabin. Please don’t cook in the cabin. Please don’t put anything in the loo except TP, sawdust, and your business. We only mention it because, well, we’ve had people do a few sketchy things in the past. We’re sure you’re super cool and would never do anything like that, but we kinda gotta say it anyway. We don't want to have to give you a poor review and/or charge you extra cleaning and damage fees, and we're sure that'd be a bummer for you, too.

Sweet little cabin

I really enjoyed my stay at this little cabin. It was nestled into a hill over looking a vast scene of mountains and a river. The sunset was phenomenal. I was only here to get some rest so it was a perfect, peaceful, quiet place for me to sleep. I kept the windows open all night for fresh cool air. I felt safe and comfy.

I found this little cabin and its setting to be nothing short of magical. I woke reach morning to the sound of sandhill cranes calling and the baaaas of sheep in the pasture across the road. I felt suspended in space and time while I was there -- so far away from the stressors and strife of today's world. What a sweet spot, truly! Sabrina and Tom and their family made my feel so very welcome. I'm still thinking about my time there. I can't wait to return. I really enjoyed learning more about ranching and the eastern Oregon way of life. I wish I could've stayed longer to take in more of the surrounding area. The cabin is cozy and comfy. I used the stove twice, and I found the outhouse/shower to be sufficient. (The hot water in the shower was intermittently reliable, but that's a known issue they're working to resolve currently.) I highly recommend this place. Seriously, I can't wait to return!

Lovely cabin! Very cozy and comfortable and the special touches were appreciated. The shower was truly epic and we loved the composting toilet. The hosts were so responsive and helpful whenever we had questions. Highly recommend as a more private and unique alternative to a hotel if you are passing through this area!

It truly was an awesome shower. Also a lovely little cabin. There are two ways to deal with Eastern Oregon. One is to grit your teeth and rush through it. That leads to a pretty grim drive. The other is stop and experience it in all its emptiness. That led to a lovely night in a nice quiet place and an awesome shower. :-) Hosts are friendly and available but respectful of distance. The view is lovely. Cabin is pretty close to the main house, but feels private. We really enjoyed our stay and are happy we made the decision to stop.
