Tiny house seclusion. Off-grid, solar cabin sits on its own hilltop, 1 mile from Bethany College in beautiful West Virginia. 160 acres of private land with two miles of navigable Buffalo Creek to enjoy. A comfortable double bed provides an ideal slumber for one or two people. Stay three or more nights and receive a free bottle of our homemade maple syrup, redbud jelly, or a dozen fresh eggs. Extra guests are welcome to pitch a tent or roll out sleeping bags on the porch for $10/person/night.
Quiet, relaxing, private, inspiring. These are some words that describe your unique, tiny house hilltop retreat on Redbud Hill Farm! We guarantee you will leave with your creative batteries recharged and a renewed sense of focus and inspiration. This non-smoking cabin sits 1/4 mile from our home through the woods on it's own hilltop, which you will have to yourself. Solar panel provides minimal electricity. Hand pump for spring water. Very clean outhouse. Outdoor, au naturel, homemade solar bucket shower. Secluded and private, with a lot of charm. All built by us out of wood salvaged from trees on our farm and processed into lumber on our sawmill.
If you like to camp, without the hassle and hardship, you will enjoy having a tidy cabin, a comfortable bed, a screened in porch, and a setting all to yourself. There is no refrigerator, but we can provide a cooler if you need one. There is a wonderful old-time country store 1 mile away where you can purchase ice, food, and other supplies. We supply all basic cookware and utensils. You can have a campfire, hike the trails, look for arrowheads in the fields - (yes, they are there!), birdwatch - kingfishers, ducks, geese, turkeys, bluebirds, even a nesting pair of bald eagles that live on our adjacent property one mile away, canoe or kayak Buffalo Creek - depending on water levels , or enjoy some smallmouth bass fishing. PETS ARE WELCOME! See our pet policy under "Other things to note"
Some amenities include a campfire pit, screened in porch, Coleman stove and propane for cooking, basic dishes and cooking supplies. If you need something, we can get it for you. Our farm is called "Redbud Hill Farm" because of all of the beautiful redbuds that bloom around our property during the spring. We invite you to hike the trails on the property through woods and fields. You can also enjoy our 2 mile private access to Buffalo Creek for fishing, swimming, canoeing, or skipping stones. We have a lot of wildlife to observe, including bald eagles, blue herons, whitetail deer, wild turkeys, grouse, rabbits, foxes, and birds of all kinds. You will hear coyotes yipping at night, but they are very reclusive and are not a threat to humans.
Hunting privileges do not come with the cabin rental. Also, no discharge of firearms without permission.

We have raised seven children. Two are still at home. The older ones have ventured all over the world, some living for extended periods in countries like Spain, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, South Korea, and Mexico. We like to meet interesting, adventurous people who love life, the arts, traveling, and generally being nice people. This is a place for quiet reflection and artistic pursuits, not a party shack to make a lot of noise and mess. We will be happy to get you situated and make your stay as pleasant as possible. Jim, and our daughter Rosalie, are artists, and some of their work can be found around the cabin, as well as works from other artists. This quote from Thoreau's 'Walden' is a good way to begin thinking about your time here:
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”

The cabin has a comfortable double bed, and suits 2 people just fine, though other guests are welcome to roll out sleeping bags inside the cabin or on the porch. The solar panel provides some lighting, a cell phone or laptop charge, or fan, depending on how cloudy the day is. After a sunny day some recent guests were able to run a box fan (provided) through the night. Cloudy days will provide less electricity, so you will need to conserve your electricity usage.
The one room cabin is insulated, clean and comfortable. It has beautiful oak, maple, and cherry flooring, paneling, and cathedral ceiling - harvested and milled on our farm. There are a couple of tables and some chairs, including an antique rocking chair to read a book on the screened in porch and maybe catch sight of some deer or turkeys strolling by. A cute little Jotul Swedish woodstove provides heat for warmth or cooking. The kitchen is on the porch, with a sink, supplies, and counter space.
Make no mistake, this is a rustic, secluded experience. You will have the hilltop to yourself. The outhouse is about 25 feet from the cabin. We provide toilet paper and hand sanitizer. A hand pump provides access to spring water, about 100 feet from the cabin. It is a shallow springhouse, so we recommend bringing bottled water for drinking. The water is fine for cooking and cleaning. A homemade solar bucket shower is a highlight! A black bucket can be placed in the sun to provide 5 gallons of water for a couple of warm showers per filling. Enjoy a private, off-grid, bucket shower experience, surrounded by trees and sunshine!
PET POLICY - Pets are great. We have pets. We love pets. But some of our guests have severe pet dander allergies (not to mention a dislike for pet smells, fleas, and ticks), so we don't allow pets to spend any time in the cabins. Pets are welcome to stay on the porch or outside the cabin. ALSO, your pet is completely your responsibility. You will be living in the woods. with wild animals, such as raccoons, opossums, foxes, etc., that your pet may encounter if not kept close to you or on a leash. Your pet may also feel the call of the wild and run off (though we have not lost any yet). It will be your responsibility to take care of your pet and make sure it is safe. Our pets know our property and run free, so don't ask us to tie up our pets. Bringing your pet with you is one of the perks of staying with us, but you will need to do whatever it takes to keep your pet under control and safe. Some people bring pet carriers, leashes, or run lines. We have pet carriers available for you to use as a temporary house for your pet if you need one.
Please read our descriptions thoroughly. This is kind of like camping, but with a really nice, comfortable cabin instead of a tent. You will need to bring your own food and drinking water. Electricity is limited, depending on the clouds and sun. You may need to split your own wood and keep a fire going in the wood stove. The outhouse is very clean, but unheated. You may need to pump water at the well. The shower is an outdoor bucket shower, which is a highlight for everyone. We keep the cabin very clean, but you may encounter some typical camping type bugs and animals, such as beetles, spiders, chipmunks, or the occasional mouse.
The property (160 acres), is yours to explore for the duration of your stay. This is not a party house. We ask that you respect the buildings and the surroundings and leave things as you find them. Tidying up at the end of your stay is appreciated. Fires should be contained in the wood stove or fire pit. No smoking inside the cabin.
You may need to hike 1/4 mile into the cabin, depending on road conditions. There is a nice double bed, and you are welcome to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and towels, or we can provide these for a $20 fee to be paid when you arrive.
Pets are allowed to wander off-leash as long as they are well-behaved, not biters, and play well with Dixie the Wonderdog. She is generally very good with friendly dogs, but will bristle at unfriendly dogs. Pets are allowed on the porch of the cabin, but we ask that they not be brought into the living area. We are reasonable and won't stick you with additional costs unless something is truly damaged and needs to be repaired or replaced, eg., broken window, slashed screen, etc. So far we have not had any damages to the property.
