The Cozy A-Cabin

The Log Chalet

Perfectly natural, cozy and secluded for solitary retreat, vacation retreat or honeymoon retreat.

The A-Cabin: very cozy and clean, modified A-frame style cabin finished in 2002. It's the most secluded and private of our cottages with an expansive and beautiful pure wilderness view. Fully equipped. Electric heat and wood stove. Sleeps 2. Ideal for a solitary retreat. The interior is clean and simple, finished in hemlock and spruce. The round log beams and rafters reflect the natural rugged charm of the surrounding forest from whence they came.

The main floor includes Kitchen and living area and bathroom with shower (no tub). The wood stove along with the electric baseboard heater will keep it toasty warm on the coldest winter night. There's always plenty of firewood in the wood shed attached to the building. The stairs to the loft are steep but well designed and solid. The kitchen is compact and simple. There is a propane cook stove to the right of the sink. Wilderness views for eating, sleeping or meditating. See more A-Cabin pictures

A couple of Guest Book comments

The A-Cabin is the high point of our visit to Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. This was not a conventional retreat for us. … We have used our time here to slow down just a bit, to knead the tension out of each other’s muscles, to sleep late and dream about the family we are beginning. … We have loved ending our days to the smell of the wood burning stove. … Thank you for building a cabin that embraced us and felt like home. P. H. (Brooklyn, NY)

This is an amazing place to stay. Just in the vicinity of our cabin we saw a moose, eagles, a huge owl, and a pileated woodpecker. The view and the quiet make you appreciate the wonder of nature. The Cape Breton area is beyond belief and this cabin added greatly to our pleasure. … Thanks for your hospitality and our best wishes to you. R. & M. P. (Blue Grass, GA)
