Come to the Pinecone to completely relax and disconnect (seriously you will because there is no cell service!).

During Summer and much of Spring and Fall, you should be able to drive up to the cabin. Unless your vehicle has especially low clearance. The road/path out to the bunkie started as a well-made tractor path that has held up well over the years but has some rocks and bumps. Once through the gate it’s only a 1-minute drive to where you will park. This road may be a bit muddy!

There is 1 queen size bed in the loft for sleeping which is accessible by ladder. You will melt into the pillow-top mattress, luscious linens and don’t want to wake up heavenly pillows.

There is porta potty outhouse that is cleaned, bright and easy to access. There are hanging solar lights that can be turned on as needed.

There isn't running water in the bunkie but we are happy to provide you with as much well water that you would like, for cooking/cleaning. Do not drink from well unless you bring your own filtration system. No shower space but sponge/cloth bathing possible.

There is a small table for 2 inside the bunkie or you can prep food and eat outside on the picnic table. A small fridge cooler is available to store any perishable food you may have. Bring your own ice.

The bunkie has solar lighting for the evenings. If you don’t want to find your own firewood in the forest you can pick it up from locals on your way in for $5/bundle (see stands at the end of driveways).

It is a big chunk of land but you can't really get 'lost' on it for any significant period of time. We are bounded by roads so eventually you will find your way. But, if you aren't experienced in the woods you may want to keep your wandering short, to start, as you get familiar with the land.

• Bed linens and pillows

This was a beautiful and cute getaway.
"This was a beautiful and cute getaway. Very secluded from the outside world (she isn’t kidding when she says your phone does not have service while you are there, which is totally fine). I recommend downloading all music you’d like to listen to while you are there.She has provided lots for you which was a pleasant surprise. Overall, we did have an amazing time and would book again for sure. The only two cons: I would recommend the owner placing a sign where to turn off the dirt road. We arrived around 8:30pm, and it was very dark, so we did have troubles finding the cabin. The other con was the condition of the porta potty, smelt pretty potent and the last cleaning date (maybe it wasn’t updated), was quite some time ago. Other than those two things, this place is great! Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay!"

very nice and quiet peaceful place to stay

Adorable little getaway.
Adorable little getaway. Great spot to sit at night watching the stars, listening to all the wildlife around. Cabin was very cute and clean, with a lovely fire pit to enjoy. You are nestled off the beaten path, into the heart of a little pine tree clearing, honestly so romantic! Loved our stay.

The cabin was beautiful
The cabin was beautiful and there were many essential things that we forgot to bring. There were some board games, aluminum and wood there. The experience was amazing and it was close to a gas station. Never been camping so this was a great first experience for my partner and I. Brianne was so helpful sent us a picture on how to get to the place and she was very polite!
