This cabin is perfect for a couple, two couples, (3 couples if one sleeps on futon in living room), a friends weekend, or a family. We have 2 bedrooms (1 with Q and 1 with K), a nice Q futon in the living room, and a twin air mattress if you need it. The space is open, yet cozy, charming with a rustic feel, but has modern amenities like dishwasher and newer mattresses. Watch from the large picture windows as the rain or snow falls while you are warmed by the wood stove! We are set back away from the road amongst lots of trees, but you can hear traffic from Barlow Trail Rd if you are in the front yard or have the front windows open. If you are in the backyard, or only have the river-facing windows open, you mostly hear the river! Our cabin is not on riverfront property, but you can hear the river, as it's just through the trees less than 50 yards away. Our cabin feels secluded, but we do have two somewhat distant neighbors. You can't see them in the spring/summer due to foliage, but in the winter you can see them through the trees.
Under 20 min drive to Govt Camp, 5 min to Welches Thriftway grocery.
HEAT: you can heat the main living area in the cabin without using the wood stove to about 65 degrees, and the bedrooms to 72, by using the electric baseboard heater near the record player, the plug in heater, and the very warm bedroom wall heaters. Some guests found they needed to use the wood stove to be comfortable in the living room area, so please keep this in mind. Although there is electric heat, the wood stove is guaranteed warmth! The wood stove can heat the entire home on it's own if you read the instructions in the cabin and keep it going. In fact, it gets too hot at times! If you plan to use the wood stove and not the electric heaters, we provide wood for you, but please bring your own kindling & newspaper, which can be found at the Brightwood Store near the cabin for $2.99.
