Here you are surrounded by the Homochitto National Forest. Take a picnic to the sand-bars along the pristine spring-fed creek. Hike or mountain bike on the remote forest roads. Plenty of porch sitting awaits you.

Please note that the address listed on Airbnb is not our location. I will email you directions.

The space
Experience starry nights listening to the owls hooting far off in the woods, and peaceful days with no phone, no Wifi, and no interruptions. What you'll hear are only the sounds of nature and what you'll see is the movement of light as the day passes into night.

When it rains it is lovely to hear the raindrops on the tin roof. When it's cold it's time to build a fire in the wood-burning stove. For the warmer seasons, we have super cold AC.

It's important to bring all your food and provisions and to note that Gloster does have a tiny grocery store. I'm not sure if they sell beer on Sundays, and they definitely do not have wine. Gloster is 25 minutes from the Forest Retreat.

We clean the cabins as soon as guests leave, and then check them the morning before anyone arrives. That said, if a beetle walks through an unseen crack and is there when you arrive please remember you are coming to a natural place surrounded by a national forest.

The Forest Retreat is at the end of a Forest Service Road inside the Homochitto National Forest. We have no number or road address to give you, and GPS doesn't work to get you here. Please don't try to GPS your travel. My directions are very good, and I urge you to print out a copy for your drive.
