"The Mayapple" - Tiny house seclusion. Off-grid, solar cabin sits on its own hilltop, 1 mile from Bethany College in beautiful West Virginia. 170 acres of private land with two miles of Buffalo Creek to enjoy. A comfortable double bed provides an ideal slumber for one or two people. Extra guests may pitch a tent or roll out sleeping bags for $10/person/night. Pets welcome at $10/pet/night - see pet policy.

O espaço
NOTE: Our tiny homes will be closed for the months of January and February. Folks are already booking for the spring. We hope to see you then!

Quiet, relaxing, private, inspiring. These are some words that describe your stay at the Mayapple, a 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. You just won't find this kind of seclusion in most state parks or private venues. There are only two other cabins (about 1/2 mile away), on the 170 acre property that is entirely surrounded by Buffalo Creek. 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 the Mayapple - 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."

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. (Please note: The bed is only 6’ long, so taller guests may want to stay in one of our other tiny houses.) 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 propane cooktop, 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, but you will need to bring your own 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!

COVID19 VIRUS -

Because of the unique nature of our properties - isolated tiny homes with minimal human contact, we believe we can continue to provide safe and enjoyable stays for our guests. However in order to operate responsibly we have studied the CDC guidelines and will need to take the following extra precautions to assure the safety of our guests and to avoid the spread of COVID.

1. All tiny homes will be left vacant for a minimum of 24 hours before a new guest arrives.
2. Guests will be asked to either walk or drive their own vehicles (high clearance AWD) to their tiny home. We can transport luggage in our ATV as long as the guest loads and unloads the ATV.
3. Guests will need to bring all of their own bedding. We will provide mattresses and freshly washed mattress covers. Guests should bring their own pillows, sheets, blankets, towels, and/or sleeping bags.
4. We will thoroughly clean each tiny house according to CDC guidelines as prescribed by Airbnb.
5. We will maintain safe social distancing with our guests as prescribed by the CDC.

We apologize for the inconvenience but we want to maintain a safe experience for all parties and believe that these precautions will ensure that COVID is not transmitted.

Acesso do hóspede
No smoking permitted in the building.

Some amenities include a campfire pit, screened in porch, stovetop 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.

EVENTS - The space is exclusively meant for the lodging and enjoyment of our renters. No events or groups of guests not listed on the rental are permitted.

Outras observações
BUFFALO CREEK - SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK - The Homeowner is not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that occurs while on the premises or its facilities. Buffalo Creek completely surrounds the property and there is a canoe and kayaks available for guest use. Guests are completely responsible for any accidents or incidents related to the creek or the use of the available watercraft. Water can be fun, but it can also be dangerous. Be safe at all times. Guests assume all liability for any interaction with the creek.

CANOE and KAYAKS - There are two fishing kayaks available for you to use. We keep them at the Lower Cabin (Wild Mustard), for safekeeping, but all guests are allowed to use them. Guests at the Wild Mustard know that other guests may be stopping by to use the kayaks for a bit. The paddles are with the boats. You will need to carry the kayaks down to the creek and return them to the Wild Mustard when you are finished. The best thing to do is to paddle upstream for as far as you can go and then turn around and come back. You can go downstream as far as the bend, but we don't advise going much past the bend because the creek can get shallow and paddling back upstream can be a chore. Coast guard approved life jackets are available in the Wild Mustard wood bin and should be worn at all times by anyone using the boats.

There is also a red canoe that sits next to the creek that you can use, however it leaks a little bit and also tends to be a perfect house for mice and snakes. Adventurous souls are welcome to take it for a spin!

FIREWOOD - Each tiny house comes with a wood stove and a wood bin stocked with a supply of dry, split hardwood for the wood stove. Firewood is free to use in the cabin to keep warm, however there is a charge for using the wood in the outdoor fire pit - $5 for a bundle of 8 pieces.

PET POLICY - We ask for an extra fee of $10/night/pet, payable when you arrive.

Pets are great. We have pets. We love pets. If your pet is not mean or harmful to other pets and/or people then he/she is welcome on the farm. However some of our guests have pet dander allergies (not to mention a dislike for pet smells, fleas, and ticks), so we prefer to have pets stay on the porch or outside the cabin. Pets may stay inside the cabin, especially in cold weather, under the following conditions - 1. They should be very well behaved - no gnawing or scratching the floors or furniture. 2. They should be pre-treated for fleas and ticks. 3. Guests must do a thorough job cleaning up any hair, footprints, or other messes. 4. Of course, the dog should be house trained. 5. No pets on the bed or sofa. You may bring bedding for your pet, or you are welcome to use one of our portable pet carriers at no charge.

ALSO, You will be living in the woods with wild animals, such as raccoons, opossums, foxes, etc., that your pet may encounter. 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 we don't tie them up. 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. Some let there pets run free.

CHECKOUT by 11:00 AM. If we are carting your belongings, we will not arrive with the ATV before 8:00 AM. If you are driving yourself, you may check out as early as you wish.

Localização

Wellsburg, West Virginia, Estados Unidos

We are located on Redbud Hill Farm, one mile from Bethany, WV, home to Bethany College. The small town has a throw-back general store that has been owned for generations. They have everything you would expect in a well-stocked general store. The college has tennis courts, a swimming pool, raquetball court, fitness center, and library, which are available to the public. (NOTE: COVID maylimit th e use of college facilities).

Oglebay Park is a 20 minute drive. Wheeling is 30 minutes.

Downtown Pittsburgh is a one hour drive.

Day trips can include a Moundsville Prison Tour (45 minutes), zip lining at GrandVue Park (45 minute drive), downtown Pittsburgh (60 minutes). Great historic dining at Drover's Inn (15 minutes). The immediate local area isn't brimming with culture, though Bethany College (1 mile) and West Liberty University (5 miles) often offer unique musical, athletic, and arts events. Your main purpose for coming here will most likely be to enjoy the quiet solitude of the cabin, hiking the peaceful woods, and maybe an outing on Buffalo Creek.

Jim owns a sawmill and built our cabins from trees on our property. He is also a retired art professor and likes to produce maple syrup and sculptures out of metal and wood.

Durante sua estadia
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, Jordan, Morocco, 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.”
