Darling 100 sq foot rustic cabin, wonderfully secluded in the woods. Try out tiny-house living, or use as a basecamp for your outdoor adventures. Rest easy on the memory foam bed in loft.

Conveniently located just 9 miles from the I-5 corridor (one hour from Portland, two from Seattle), yet exists in a different, more peaceful world. Spot the Bald Eagle family as you follow the stunning Kalama River--past Marietta Falls--to our small homestead in the woods. Spend the week surrounded by giant Hemlock, Alder, Doug Fir, and Western Red Cedar trees, the singing of tree frogs, and the elusive local elk herd. Perfect for stargazing by night, and kayaking or day trips to Mount Saint Helens and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest by day. Reserve early for this summer's meteor showers! Forage for berries and chanterelles in season, and take a dip in Italian Creek.

This cabin is located on the hill above our working small farm. Many guests enjoy tagging along for the farm chores, which vary by season, but usually include milking the goats, collecting fresh-laid chicken, duck and goose eggs, checking on the friendly pigs, and harvesting garden produce and flowers. Of course, the cabin is very private and guests are encouraged to enjoy a peaceful, introspective retreat from life!

Our cabins provide all the benefits of traditional camping, but save the effort of wrestling with a tent. "Real" dishes, silverware, and cooking basics are provided, as are many pantry supplies. Each cabin has at least one coffee-making apparatus (usually a French press), and a cooler. We try to have an extra blanket or two, but do plan to bring your own warm bedding (sheets and/or sleeping bags)--remember the weather up here is often 10 degrees cooler than in town. Bring a book or two for the in-cabin book exchange! Composting toilet and outdoor-only butane powered cookstove provided (with butane) at the Red Cabin.

We stayed at the Red Cabin on a quick getaway from Portland. The place was really cute and we enjoyed our time there. The highlight was a chorus of frogs in the evening.

Charming looks, and a friendly frog symphony at night, but beware the difficult access -- you'll be hauling all your water, firewood, and gear ~5 minutes up a steep muddy slope from where you can park. Cabin lacks any insulation, and quickly fills with smoke if the wood stove on the porch is used to warm yourself up. It was in the high 30s at night, but somehow I've had warmer-feeling nights in a tent when its in the teens. Made for a cold, smoky night that we shivered through until daybreak to avoid slipping on the walk back down to the van. :/

What a cool little spot!

Loved coming here and would totally visit again. One downside was the cabin on the inside - lots of cobwebs & spiders, but I guess that's to be expected when you're in the woods!
