The Cedar Cabin

The cabin is built around a massive cedar tree found on the property. The tree stretches to the ridgepole, supporting the second floor loft and the handcrafted cedar stairs. Craftsmanship surrounds you, from the well-equipped custom kitchen to the tree-house bedroom. Whatever the season, you’ll enjoy the view from the deck: crisp winter deer tracks, cheerful spring wild flowers, lush deep green forests, or bright fall colors. On the trails or by the stream, you will enjoy “radio silence” where you can truly disconnect. 

Hopewell Croft has beds for nine. It is fully connected, with internet and satellite TV. Cell phone service within the cabin benefits from a signal booster. The cabin is smoke free.

Additional features:

• Climate control via an efficient HVAC system
• Safe municipal water
• Well-kept gravel lane leading from the paved two-lane road
• Large deck with additional seating
• Gas grill and a fire pit
• Full-size washer and dryer

The first floor has a cozy seating area, with a flat screen TV, nestled next to the red cedar stairs. The dining table seats 6.  Two expandable tables in the cabin bring the total dining capacity to 18.  Two sliding doors open onto the spacious deck. The bedroom on this level is furnished with a comfortable queen size bed. There is also a sleeper sofa, on this level, with a full-sized bed.  The main level has a full bath with a tub and shower.

The second level features a large conversation loft, beneath the cathedral ceiling. Here you’ll find another flat screen TV and comfortable seating.  With its view of the hills, this is a great space for cards, games or reading. This level also has the large master bedroom, with a queen-sized bed, and a bath with a large shower.

The young and young at heart will be delighted by the tree-house bedroom. Enter this small bedroom from the second level and climb the cedar tree-house ladder to the three custom twin beds tucked beneath the rafters. Please note: This bedroom is not appropriate for young children.
