What Guests Are Saying

"Audie and Jenny have done a wonderful job of creating a comfortable, enjoyable retreat far away from towns and the conveniences that come with them. When you stay here leave your preconceived notions behind and get into the spirit of the place. It’s entirely off the grid. We enjoyed experiencing what it's like to be self-reliant in this beautiful but harsh environment."
