Accommodations, Rates, Deposits
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, five rustic cabins in the woods, and wilderness camp sites.
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.

There are two cabins ("bunkies") on the guest house property. These cabins have full electrical power, a small refrigerator, and beds— bring your own bedding or sleeping bags. There is again no running water in these cabins but just outside the door there is
an outdoor tap. These cabins are unheated and uninsulated. They are intended as guest house "overflow" for large groups wanting to camp together— some rough it and some stay in the house. There is an electric BBQ for cooking if you don't want to start a fire. Bring your own camping gear (dishes/cooking utensils/towels). If you are a camper, these cabins are large, clean, and have comfy beds and you don't have to pitch the tent or pull the camper! Bring the whole family or a bunch of friends and enjoy a "private campground" experience.
