No electricity, no phone service, no TV, no microwave, no hot tub. If you can't live without those, this isn't the place for you.

Night light is by kerosene lamps and heat by wonderful, old-style wood stoves. Cabins are neat and clean with chopped firewood stacked conveniently outside your door in racks. Picnic tables are located outside the cabins. Seeing all the night stars in the black sky are something you'll never forget our here. Our friendly staff is always there to answer questions, identify the local flora and fauna, or suggest great places to hike or fish. Just want to be left alone with your sweetie? That's fine too!
