WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW CABINS THAT CAN OFFER WIFI. In an effort to keep the nightly cost at 149.00 in the summer months and 169.00 in the winter months, you have the option to purchase WI-FI through us for those who want it.

Our property has two flights of stairs to get to the main level of the cabin. Additionally there is a flight of stairs inside the cabin to get to the loft. Our cabin does not have ramps or wheelchair access.
We do provide a gas barbecue located on the first deck. Keep in mind that we do not maintain the propane. We recommend you bring up an extra propane tank for back up just in case it runs out. Or you can have the existing tank filled at the Cold Springs Market a few blocks away from the cabin.
Currently, Verizon is the only cell carrier that works in that area. If you have other cell service please print instructions before you head up to the property. Also another way to get accurate directions to the cabin is the put the address in maps app on your phone before you start your trip. Once you lose reception in the city of Longbarn the maps app will still be able to bring you right to the property without reception. If arriving at night our cabin is completely lit up with white Christmas lights to help show your way.

In winter months we have found that it is helpful to bring kitty litter or sand in your vehicle. Just in case you get stuck in the snow. You utilize the kitty litter to create traction between your tire and the snow.
We have provided two shovels at the property one on the lower deck and one on the top deck. If you were at the property during a snowstorm you would utilize the shovel to shovel off the deck. We have also provided snow melt ice that is in a red bucket on the shoe rack inside the cabin. Once the deck is shoveled you would sprinkle the snowmelt on the deck. This will help with keeping the stairs and deck clear.
We have a circular paved driveway that you could park three average sized vehicles in the summer and I large SUV or two small vehicles in the winter. In the winter months if it is snowing you will be required to park on the driveway and not the road. This is to ensure that the snowplow vehicles are able to plow the road daily around 2 PM. This might require shoveling snow on driveway to access a parking spot. We want to make sure you don't receive a hefty ticket from city.
In the winter months we recommend bringing up dry firewood and fire starter sticks to help start a fire in the woodstove. If you are not familiar with making a fire we recommend that you bring up extra kindling. That could be fire starter sticks , old magazines or newspaper. We do have a wood pile that you could utilize at your discretion, however keep in mind that it is wet from the snow.
Please treat our home as you would your own.
