Guest access
Registered Guests should enjoy the entire house, deck, campfire yard, the 2 mile dirt road leading to the rental and hiking trails off the property to the main creek (no vehicles, camping, or fires allowed on USFS land).

We have 7, mostly large, free-range dogs whose job is to protect the property and occupants from any wildlife intrusions. They are all very friendly and some will like to interact with the guests and perhaps accompany guests on local hikes.
