The space
Enjoy the great outdoors. We have beautiful sunsets. Full moons are spectacular when showing. You can see the Olympic Mountains when "they are out". Tugboats, sailboats, motorboats, and kayaks, and ships cruise by.

This cabin will renew your energy and inner peace. A private fire pit with wood is behind the cabin for roasting hot dogs or making s’mores. Grill and roasting sticks are provided. A propane fireplace on a thermostat will keep you warm during the winter. Read a book, construct jigsaw puzzle, write a story, or create art. Use your time here is to get unplugged from the world and tune into your inner self. There is limited cell service on the Island.

The Cozy Cabin was built for the pleasure of our four grandchildren. There is a collection of toys, books, games, and puzzles. A camping toilet can be provided in the cabin for urgent night time use if requested.

The Cozy Cabin provides an enhanced camping experience. Single or double sleep sacks, blankets, pillows/cases, bath towels, and kitchen towels will be provided. Pack N Play and highchair are available upon request. Campers should provide their own beach towels for beach or lake use.

Other things to note
The cabin and outhouse are crafted with a mix of beautiful wood. You will appreciate the aromatic wood scent as soon as you enter! The cabin is 12 volt LED with solar panels and generator for limited 120 volt use. Drinking water comes from our own well. Rainwater is collected and used for general washing. Our state-of-the-art composting toilet is waterless and odorless. You shower in a wine barrel with water heated on demand by propane. The photos tell the rest of the story.

Burn bans - there are 2 types of burn bans: fire safety and air quality. Fire safety burn bans can occur when conditions are very dry. During the ban, only charcoal and propane are permitted at the campfire in the forest. Regular fires are allowed in the beach fireplace. Air quality fire bans can occur in winter and summer when air is stagnant. Specific regulations according to air quality are published. We have propane options for campfire and cooking.
