When our guests are not relaxing with a beer on the new deck, napping in the lofted bed, or enjoying the covered firepit area; they enjoy touring the pubs and tap houses nearby. What this tiny cottage lacks in space, it more than makes up for with amenities like a fresh air shower, outdoor dining and lounging area, and a BBQ with cooler. The Retreat vibe is pretty relaxed so if you're seeking down time in the great outdoors you've found it!
The morning of your arrival, parking and self-check in details will be messaged to you. During your stay, your host is available via phone and text between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.
Human neighbors are friendly, but enjoy the privacy that country life ensures. The numerous animal neighbors are furry, or feathered, and some are approachable; but most are pretty shy. (deer, raccoon, quail, squirrels, skunk, etc...)
My Tiny Bird House can certainly be described as "remote". If you're afraid of outdoor things that go "bump" in the very dark night, this might not be the best accommodations for you. If you're an adventurous type, however, wildlife abounds and the views from this waterfront cabin are just the thing to melt your cares away. You'll come away inspired AND relaxed.
You'll have the "run of the place"....all 48 square feet of it! :o)~
This cozy little house may be only 48 square feet but it's filled with so many conveniences. And, it proves that you don't need a lot of space or a lot of money to be comfortable and get a good nights rest.
My Tiny Bird House is one of many, scattered, private accommodations on our 2.5 acre Retreat. Each one is spaced adequately to provide plenty of privacy but also a sense of safety for our guests who are not used to experiencing our very dark rural nights. Unless you have an event contract with us which includes the entire complex, all outdoor areas are shared with other guests. These include, but are not limited to the grape arbor sitting area, covered fire pit pavilion, picnic tables, yoga decks, and creek front beach area.
Wildlife abounds and the territorial views from the deck are just the thing to melt your cares away.
All of our guests really LOVE the outdoor shower and we know that you will too! Lovely fluffy towels and warm, fuzzy, robes are provided so dressing and undressing for your long, hot, outdoor shower is easy and convenient.
Then, after your relaxing shower, grab a beer or a glass of wine, and have a seat on one of our relaxing lounge chairs in your own personal yard space. You'll come away inspired AND relaxed.
