Welcome to our secluded, off grid, little piece of paradise in Historic Boxley Valley. With 46 acres to explore and Beech Creek, which feeds the upper Buffalo River just a mile away, you will for sure be able to get your adventuring in! The cabin was built on a bluff line overlooking Cave Mountain, offers stunning views, great for bird watching or just being immersed in nature. If you are looking for tranquility, a chance to get away from the stresses of everyday life, look no further!

The space
We think our cabin is one of the most special places on earth and much love goes into offering comfortable bedding, furniture and supplies. It is off-grid, using 100% solar energy and rainwater, and you can stay connected via phone and internet ... perfect! The property adjoins Beech Creek, which feeds into the upper portion of the Buffalo River one mile away.

**Please Note: In the summer, the AC can not be ran at night at all, the batteries do not have the capacity to hold up to the power the AC requires. We do have a window fan (intake and outtake options) and a floor fan as well as many windows that can be opened.**

The space
The secluded 2-story cabin is built on a bluffline on 46 pristine acres. I added everything you need for the perfect stay. The views are breathtaking and you'll be super close to amazing climbing, floating, hiking and sightseeing. I created both indoor and outdoor seating spaces; the kitchen is well-equipped -- and for sleeping there is one queen bed upstairs and a twin size day bed with a pull out trundle as well.
This might be the right place if you want to be immersed in nature and privacy, you have a sense of adventure and love bird watching, pristine scenery, rivers, wildlife, quiet. If you don't like the idea of an outdoor shower, soaking in the indoor clawfoot bathtub may be the better option!

Guest access
Full kitchen and bath with clawfoot tub, outdoor shower, covered deck, landline, wifi. Air-conditioned (LIMITED, can NOT be run at night, or past 6 PM, please make note of this when booking during warm/hot months) and heated, or throw open the dozens of windows which surround the house. Campfire. Bring your laptop for movies. There is also a beautiful bluff area to the East of the cabin. Please have a conservation attitude and respect for the earth, as you will be living off its energy.

Other things to note
We are a designated International Dark Sky area.

Children (of all ages) are valued and planned for just as thoughtfully as adults.

This home has been considered safe and free from allergens and mold by persons affected by mold sensitivity and CFS. Green construction with low volatile organic compounds. The wood, including flooring, is all locally-sourced; much of it was harvested from the property. Please let me know in advance if you have particular allergies or sensitivities.

We have chosen not to have a microwave because of its demand on the solar power. You also can't use curling irons or such, because the extreme heat could damage the batteries, and please be minimal with hair dryer usage. Please note again, the AC can NOT be ran at night at all, it will drain the batteries completely and you will not have power. Thank you!

I have a rooster and he will crow to announce the morning! I provide a white noise machine by each bed to help you sleep in. He is the protector of our flock of 6 hens, and they will happily provide you with fresh eggs.

My husband, Austin, and myself love seeing this amazing world from a natives eye, hence why we love Airbnb so much. Having lived in Australia and back packed through Thailand, we certainly have caught the travel bug as well. We enjoy coffee, wandering around with no set place in mind, a good hike, craft beer and cocktails, and of course good eats! Music is a big part of our lives, so we love hearing of places to catch a rad band, or any sort of entertainment going on nearby. Most importantly, we enjoy adventuring together and meeting awesome folks! We just purchased one of our favorite places on earth ad we are so excited to share it with you. I found this magical spot right here on Airbnb looking for a place for Austin and I to elope! I met with Robin, the former owner, at a local coffee shop, and she agreed to let us get married on her stunning property. It was the most magical week of our lives. We dreamed of owning a property just like this one, never did we imagine we would be here, 4 short years later, the proud new owners of our favorite place on earth. We hope you will love it as much as we do! "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." -Saint Augustine

House Rules
Respect the land - leave no trace and enjoy!

The enjoyment of fires is encouraged within the fire pits and in the chiminea. This is, after all, the woods! Burn bans at the county and state level must be followed; these are issued periodically during dry spells and I will inform you.

I love to burn candles, and I will have them available for you. I trust you will take the same care with them as I would myself.
