Accommodations, Rates, DepositsOtter River Farms is available for rental of facilities (see below) or you can come visit the land for the day. Day use fee is $10/person and you'll receive a copy of the map of the farm.
Weekend rentals are available from September to June. During July and August, preference is given to week rentals - weekends will only be made available for booking starting in May. Long weekends are an exception and can be booked for a three day rental.
We offer a spacious five bedroom, three bathroom guest house with two on-property cabins, and five rustic cabins in the woods.
We prefer to rent to mature, responsible adults and families who appreciate the beauty of nature, respect the antiques on our property and those of us who live here. Partying is encouraged as long as it's done without disturbing others. We do rent to large groups but may request a security deposit which would be returned if there is no damage to the house or property.

Straw bale cabin is $100/night.
Beaver lodge cabin is $110/ night (can sleep 6 people).
All cabin rentals include firewood, kindling and 5 gallon containers of water.
All of our cabins are very rustic and meant for those who love nature and camping. All are insulated and come with the basic necessities - utensils, dishes, cutlery, kettle, pots, coffee pot or bodum, wood stove, outdoor fire pit, propane burner for cooking, and an outhouse. The Hunt Camp cabin has full electricity with a hot plate and small fridge; the straw bale and train station cabins have solar lighting. Most cabins have no lighting so we supply one battery-operated light for cabins with no solar but please bring other lights with you. None of the cabins have running water or electricity (they do have outhouses). Water is supplied, but is not meant for drinking - please bring your own bottled water. You need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags but pillows are supplied. What these cabins offer is a private, secluded, beautiful site in nature for those who love to camp but would prefer to be in a building. The "lower bush cabin" and "beaver lodge cabin" overlook the Otter river and the "train station" and "straw bale cabin" overlook the valleys.
