Cabin Holiday Rental
Welcome to our little Birdhouse! Nestled in the woods close to the beautiful Marsh Lake this super cozy off-grid cabin could be your home base for hiking, biking, horse back riding, paddling or fishing trips that start right outside your door step. Our cabin sleeps regularly 2, but can also accommodate 4, if the group does have no problem to sleep in the same space; there is one queen sized bed in the loft, and if wished, we can add a futon bed to it. You'll have a fully equipped kitchen, a comfy dining space, and a wood stove chilling area all in one room! Get the 'Back to the Roots'-feeling by living off the grid (read propane lights, potable water and outhouse. No Internet, no shower, no power).

Dear guest, please make sure you never leave an burning/ operating cook stove and wood stove unattended during your stay. Always make sure the wood stove door is securely locked before you go outside. Please do not store or leave food and garbage somewhere outside around the cabin, we do have wildlife what could get attracted by its smell and may bring you in danger.
