Taylor Pines is located just a short drive from Interstate 40. Our host, Susie, had a friend meet us out at the property. He was waiting for us in the driveway when we arrived and led us back to the property. The road back to the property isn’t really a road - there were tire tracks to mark the way and the path was flat but the grass is overgrown and makes it hard to see what you’re driving over. We unfortunately we dinged up the bottom of our new van on some rocks and sticks. The plastic is currently hanging off the bottom of the undercarriage. If you’re going there in a car, drive slow and keep your eyes peeled. Even better would be a truck with a little bit more clearance.

The property itself is pretty with a little cabin that sits back about 50 feet from a small lake. The little front porch gives you a really nice view of the water. Though we visited in winter when parts of it were frozen, it isn’t hard to imagine it in spring and summer when the trees are leafed out and beautiful. It’s private and secluded and we think it’d be the perfect little getaway. There’s even a little metal boat down by the water’s edge!

As for the cabin, the inside isn’t quite ready to go (it looks like it’s being used for storage) but Susie’s friend said she’s thinking about allowing people to stay in there. There isn’t a bathroom in the cabin but he said she was considering adding air conditioning and heat. Even without cabin access, there are plenty of tent sites to choose from and even a fire pit to hang out around. Seems like a fun place and we’d definitely give it a try in warmer weather.

How cute is this little shelter?Caroline down by the lake.The drive on up to the property!You ready for a hike?!

We loved our stay here so much. It was very muddy to the cabin due to days of rain so Susie let us stay in her barn apartment which was honestly a better fit for us as a family of 4 and a dog! She was so very nice and we felt very safe on her land .

Taylor Pines well exceeded our expectations. My husband and I stayed two nights, both pretty chilly and a little damp. Upon arrival our host met us at a main road and guided us into a extremely private campsite. There was a generous fire pit, lounge chairs, a boat, and an extremely cozy little cabin. The cabin has a twin bed, a few chairs and tables. There were little details that made everything much more comfortable, like a few extra blankets and paper towels. We walked the local trails, explored the lake, and overall have a great time admiring the solitude. We were looking for something close to home to have a little getaway, and this hit the spot. As my husband noted ‘I had no idea so much beautiful nature was so close to us’. I would recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a nice isolated but cozy location.

This cabin is right next to a beautiful lake. We brought the dogs and they went for a swim! Will for sure be coming back next time I need to get off the grid for a night.

Very sweet spot to camp and relax next to a pond. A little clearance on your vehicle is helpful to get to the site, but a passenger car can make it fine down the 1/4 mile unpaved (but no incline) drive. Highly recommend.

Very private and beautiful place.
