You are the ONLY guests in the cabin. There are no other cabins or homes nearby except ours which is about 300 feet up the hill from the guest cabin. We also have a glamper and a vintage camper on our property (both listed on Airbnb). Neither are visible from the cabin. We are blessed to have a view of nothing but nature--in every direction :) None of that log-cabin-on-top-of-the-next-cabin like the big rental complexes.
Our home is located just up the street from the cabin and we love to host guests and share the many local hidden gems of the city. We always greet our guests personally as soon after arrival as possible and are available for questions or just to sit down for a friendly chat, but we make sure you have privacy. Feel free to walk up the way to our house or give us a call anytime.
The penchant group works very hard provide amazing experiences to our community. We are a book club that meets to discuss great works and enjoy good food! Please join a day party when you get a chance by signing up through Airbnb!
