“ Fall ” at PaPa Cabin be prepared for a different experience.
This little house, perched on a cliff, is off the grid, surrounded by forest. A quarter mile walk through the woods leads to the cabin.
Bedroom sleeps two on the comfy bed.
With only 12 volt (like your car) solar electricity, gas heat, some 12v fans (no AC) it will be an adventure! In the kitchenette, guests will find a propane range top, a fridge, and cooking utensils, bottled water, outside a charcoal grill.

The space
You will find yourself in the heart of the hilly woods, on the edge of a cliff in the center of 20 acres. I built this little house all by myself over 4 years and it is a little work of art. You can almost feel like your in a tree house.
I personal use the little house a lot myself, so you will find it is not a sterile hotel like space.
You will find charcoal and campfire wood for your use. If there are heavy rains the road in could be muddy, good shoes.
With freezing weather the rain barrel could freeze.
