Our ROMANTIC and SECLUDED one room log cabin with it's wood burning fireplace sits on the shore of it's very own 3.5 acre lake on 85 acres of land.

The closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away ensuring our guests TOTAL PRIVACY in this beautiful setting.

Enjoy your own private lake in all seasons - fishing, swimming, rowing, playing in the water with our inflatable boats, lounging in our hammocks and hanging chairs, or listening to the ice crack!  You will share your lake with only fish, frogs, ducks, geese, herons, deer, and turkeys.  In season there is a fresh herb garden available for your use.

The lake is full of large mouth bass and many of our guests have spent long hours on the dock or in the rowboat with their fishing poles.

Exploring our woods is another popular activity at the cabin.  Favorite spots include our 40' gorge, a section of moss covered boulders which we call “green rocks”, and our many stone walls. We provide a trail map and some trail signs to help with explorations.  There are benches scattered along the trails for your rest stops.  In addition to our 85 acres there is now a 105 acre land trust adjoining our eastern border with 3 miles of wonderful hiking trails.  Even more forest to explore!!

At our "Cabin on the Lake" outdoor cooking and dining can be enjoyed at all times of the day and night with our outdoor lighting.  Picnic tables at the side of the cabin and in the dock area give you a dining choice.  Or - you may prefer dining indoors at the table in front of the picture window.

Relax - hammocks, hanging chairs, lounge chairs, benches.  The choice is yours.  One of our favorite spots to relax - especially on a rainy day - is in the hanging chairs on the front porch.  Try them!!


Another favorite spot is our Memorial garden which we named in honor of our son David - a lovely place to remember loved ones (both the 2 legged and 4 legged ones!).

Many private Birthday and Anniversary celebrations have been held at the cabin and a number of marriage proposals have been accepted!
