We never intended to meet our hosts but we arrived two hours early and thought we might be able to get in. They happened to be there for Father's Day weekend and were just on their way out. So remember--phone first if you're going to be early. It was all OK. Casey was very friendly and showed us how everything worked so we didn't need to read much of the manual. We got a few tips on how to handle the heater and to deal with the mosquitoes. Since we were there during Summer Solstice we barely needed the lights and we didn't use any other electricity except to charge our phones and camera battery. We didn't really run down the solar batteries. It never got dark even surrounded by all those tall trees.

The place really has all you need for a quiet getaway in the forest. It's clean, warm and extremely quiet. A unique property, well designed and modern despite the lack of running water. It's probably best for those who are used to roughing it in rustic camp grounds. Remember to bring your water! And baby wipes will also be a good idea when you need to use the outhouse. Just don't throw them in with the TP.

Two suggestions for our hosts: Add the instructions on how to lock the front door to the main cabin. We were not used to keypad security systems and had to go by trial and error in order to figure out how the lock worked. Also, please let people know the exact mileage traveled on the two gravel roads that lead to the place. Knowing that in advance would ease some of the anxiety as you travel at such a slow speed over that curvy and sometimes very rocky road. The first trip out there seems like twice as long as it really takes, but once we knew the way in it was a quick 10 minutes in or out of the place.
