Cabin in the Big South Fork/Pickett State Park Area

Lakefront cabin with kitchen and patio
Quick word about Covid-19. The Big South Fork/Pickett State Park is an excellent area to get away from it all. Outside of hiking to the Twin Arches, most trails are sparsely utilized. There are not many restaurants in the area so the kitchen is a focal point to enjoy after a days hike. , The kitchen at Hikers Hideaway is stocked with cooking gear better than most to account for the distance to town. For example, there is a crock pot to cook while you hike. There is a six quart Instant Pot to give a try. I will block out an entire day after guest leave to eliminate "turns". A turn is out at 11 and next guest in at 3. Spacing out guest arrivals ensures the cleaning lady time to address extra Covid 19 steps and processes. Please plan to enjoy the outdoors in the Big South Fork this season.

Here is a link to events at Pickett State Park

Hikers Hideaway is a 760 Square Foot cabin with front and back covered decks (hammock hooks!) on 2 acres in Spruce Creek Acres. Both front porch and back deck have sitting arrangements. Located off Highway 297 between the Bandy Creek Park Headquarters for Big South Fork and the Pickett State Park Visitor Center on Highway 154, this cabin offers the opportunity to access hiking trails in both Parks. In addition, the Pickett-Pogue International Dark Sky Park is nearby making this hideaway convenient for astronomers. I am sorry to say the cabin does NOT provide any type of horse facilities plus ATV usage is not allowed in Spruce Creek Acres.. In addition, the cabin is NOT pet friendly and of course is SMOKE FREE.
However, hikers, naturalists, canoeist, astronomers, photographers plus anyone looking to enjoy attractions and events in the Big South Fork region will find "Hikers Hideaway" cabin and its location ideal. Once booked, the owner can provide hiking advice to some of the off the beaten path arches, waterfalls and landforms this unique area offers.

The one topic of concern is keeping up with garbage. There is a new bear proof garbage "cage" that holds a 20 gallon trash can. Please do not over fill garbage as the cleaning lady struggles with heavy to lift bags and unruly trash. There is a medium sized metal container on the porch and a typical 12 gallon can in the kitchen. It is recommended to eliminate excessive packaging prior to arrival. Any trash bags left outside often result in animal issues with ensuing mess. This is the reason for the new bear proof garbage.

Pickett State park has recycling near the campground dumpster. Guest with multiple day visits can arrange a pickup schedule prior to the duration of your stay. Please do not call at the last minute. Which is to say please plan ahead to keep the garbage from being a negative. There is a dump station at 2075 Pickett Park Highway and 515 Fairgrounds Road in Jamestown. The Pickett Park Highway dump station is open on Tuesday/Thursday and Saturdays.

Air-conditioned accommodations at this cabin offer coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay for hikers!
We went to enjoy the fall colors and spend a few days hiking. The area has lots of great trails with interesting things to see. The cabin is clean and cozy and Keith is very helpful and knowledgeable if you have questions while picking out your hikes.

5/5 Excellent

Already rebooked for my next trip
The location was great, the cabin was spotless and it had every amenity I could think of. I really enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back in the Spring with friends.

5/5 Excellent

Great little cabin.
Very enjoyable. Had everything you need. Clean, beautiful setting. Private. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Keith for the hospitality. Will definitely stay here again if ever back up this way.

5/5 Excellent

Loved it!
The cabin was just as presented on VRBO.

5/5 Excellent

quiet, clean and relaxing!
the cabin was very clean and tidy. LOTS of cooking supplies, pots and pans and such, that was really handy! The sound system in the bedroom was a nice touch! Even though there were other cabins and houses on the road, you really can't see any of them. Especially from the back deck. Relaxing in the provided hammock, under the trees with cup of coffee was extremely nice. I will definitely stay again!
