If you're looking for a private, peaceful, and cozy home-base for adventure, this is it. You can return to the 1000 sq ft cabana after your epic days spent exploring the surrounding natural wonders, cook a nice meal in the well-appointed kitchen if that's your thing, and relax by a crackling fire. Or watch the sunset from the west-facing, covered deck. Peruse the reference library of field guides and identify that bird, lizard or critter you saw. The house sits on two, mostly undeveloped acres.
My goal is to make the whole process seamless and convenient so you can enjoy freedom, independence and privacy. There's a lockbox where you can access the house key anytime after the 3pm check-in. Running late? No problem, no worries.
Another goal is to create a comfortable home-away-from home feeling, complete with a stocked larder and laundry facilities. You should expect half & half or cream as well as eggs waiting for you in the fridge. Feel free to use spices and herbs as well as staples like flour, sugar, honey, maple syrup, olive oil, butter, coffee and tea.
The coffee is whole bean and there's a Krups grinder and a couple methods to brew including an Aeropress.
Firewood is provided. Feel free to barbeque on the Weber gas grill on the deck.
Plug your "mp3 player" into the audio jack and enjoy the rather decent little sound system.
There's Oasis brand laundry detergent which is scent free. Feel free to use the folding laundry rack for drying clothes indoors and a clothesline on the side porch for drying outside. (I got rid of my dryer because I found I hardly ever had a need for it. The climate is such that your clothes will dry very quickly.)
Basically, you have the whole house, including wrap-around covered deck, to yourselves. Spread out. Relax.
(There is a second bedroom, which is not occupied, but won't be available to stay in because it is used for storage.)
You can wander around the property and you might encounter the owner over by the 16' Mongolian ger in the northeast corner of the property. Please respect that space, but feel free to knock on the door if you need anything or want to say hi.
I or my co-host can offer recommendations if you like, or basically be invisible if you like that better!
One thing the kitchen does not have is a microwave--sorry!
Depending on your cell carrier, your phone may or may not work at the Cabana. Usually you can text reliably. Also, you can use the land line to make local calls (like to make your reservation at the Hell's Backbone Grill!) and you can also use a VOIP service to make calls over the wireless internet.
- Please, no shoes in the house.
