Antone Creek Lodge was conceived roughly 25 years ago, when we first moved on to our property and reclaimed an abandoned log cabin built in 1938, where my wife Lori and I have been living ever since. Being a man of the woods, I wanted to make a living off the land, and figured out a way to have a steady income from my forest environment by making sheds from lumber I cut on my small sawmill. I built sheds for a few years from that lumber, and come up with the idea to build them on wheels, and thus Rich's Portable Cabins was born.
Antone Creek Lodge was the first idea we had, because as we rebuilt our slice of paradise in the woods, it was obvious how the property was used by those that were here before us. Piles of antlers over grown by vegetation, a tall shed near the creek for the purpose of smoking deer and elk meat, and simple bunk house structures scattered in the neglected forest behind the cabin, built just a stones throw away from nearby Antone Creek. At one time before the dams went in, salmon swam to their final destination in the creek, and native Americans used the flat where the cabin is sitting for a summer hunting ground, as evidenced by numerous spear points and hide scrapers found on the property. So it seemed fitting that we get the property back to how it was used in the past, to continue on with the historic usage of the property.
We're eager to rent to those who want to join us in experiencing a Rich's Portable Cabin, and to be close to the mountain environment that only this property and the cabins that we're sharing can provide.
