Unfortunately, at this time there is no dishwasher. Also, please do not move any of the space heaters - they are on separate circuits now.
You can hear the creek inside the cabin. It flows all the time. We love the sound and so do most people but if that bothers you please bring some earplugs.
No dogs or cats please, no indoor smoking please.
