The SpaceThe Cabin is insulated and has an airtight wood stove. There is a Murphy bed with a queen size mattress. It does not have inside running water or electric [other than a small solar electric system described below] - that's what "camping cabin" refers to. The forest has lots of wildlife, deer, wild turkeys, foxes, raccoons, great horned owls, etc. For cooking there is a 2 burner Coleman camp stove, and outside, a stone fireplace. As a result of a guest's suggestion in an April 2016 review, we added a French press coffee maker. Solar power: Solar electric panels on the roof charge a storage battery. It is a small system, only enough for small electronics, the water pump, and a couple of CFL lamps. An inverter provides up to 50 watts AC power for short periods. Officially, it's the "Potic Creek" but one of our guests from Europe liked the location so much she named it Poetic Creek in her 2014 review. It is an idyllic getaway for those who appreciate nature. It is about 25 miles north of Woodstock, about 2 hour drive from the GWB. When we started thinking about the possibility of sharing cabins a decade ago [we have a few off the grid retreats], the question was, how can we do it? It is an hour and a half round trip from our home, so travelling to the cabin after every guest is not feasible. To make it work, we ask guests to bring their sleeping bags and towels, and, 'leave it as you found it.' We figured most guests who were interested in this type of retreat would be respectful of the next guest, and that has been true. We ask, if you cannot make a commitment to leave the cabin clean and tidy for the guest after you, please don’t book a stay here. Once a month or so, we check out the cabin, restock supplies, and do any cleaning that’s needed. As in any cabin is the woods, mice do get in. If that would bother you, please don’t book a stay here. When we see evidence of them, we set traps and get rid of them, but before long they're back. Pets: Your dog is OK if you let us know before booking, we do not charge a pet fee. We have a Yorkie family ourselves. After a couple of guests could not stay due to allergies to cats, we decided it necessary not to accept cats. We do ask that if you bring your dog, that you do a thorough cleaning to remove hair, and, that you not have your dog on the bed, unless you bring a sheet or blanket large enough to cover it. This is on the honor system, please respect other guests, we can't go there to check up between every guest. At the cabin are plates, glasses, utensils, pots and pans, T paper, paper towels, dish detergent, candles, a Coleman 2 burner stove for cooking and propane fuel for it. As it is camping, you will need sleeping bags, and having a flashlight is a good idea, essential if you are arriving after dark. Bring what you would for any camping trip. In front of the cabin there’s a stone fire place and with a grill. We provide cut seasoned firewood. There is a maul [splitting axe] for splitting cut logs to the appropriate diameter. The firewood is provided for heating the cabin with the wood stove and fires for cooking in the fire place in front of the cabin only, NOT for bonfires. Please do not make outdoor fires other than in the stone fire place on the patio by the front door. While the firewood is cut to length, some larger pieces may require splitting with the maul. For the wood stove, up to 4 or 5 inches in diameter works once the fire is going. For starting the fire and if you cook on the outside fireplace grill, it's best to split fire wood to 1 1/2 to 3 inch diameter. For starting a fire, of course, you need newspaper and kindling. Bringing newspaper for this purpose is recommended. Important fire safety note: Do NOT use fire starting fluid in the wood stove, it is dangerous and can damage the stove. For heat, there is an excellent, very efficient Napoleon airtight wood stove. It has a glass front door, so you can watch the fire burning. We will send instructions in case you are not familiar with the use of airtight wood stoves. There is an outhouse about 100 feet from the cabin. THE ROAD: The wood road in is 1 1/4 miles long. It’s a bit rough, but not a problem to drive in as far as the parking spot for the cabin. [We can drive in in our Prius, which is quite low to the ground, but do need to drive slowly in a few places] The 300 feet from the parking spot to the cabin, however, are quite steep, unless you have four wheel drive, walk this last part. Over the years, two guests [out of a few hundred] have told us they felt the road to rough. So, if you have an especially low clearance or high value car, you may not want to come here. ROAD IN WINTER: If there is a significant amount of snow, you would need a four wheel drive vehicle, as the road will not be plowed.. With snow, the last 300 feet to the cabin would need to be walked, short of having a snowmobile ; - ). If you book it for winter, and it snows, there are two options. If you have 4 wheel drive you can drive to the parking area just before the cabin and walk the last 300 feet. If there is just a couple inches of snow, two wheel drive should be OK, as there are no steep hills before the parking area. If there is really heavy snow, then even four wheel drive may not be enough. Also, is there is significant snow, at the beginning of the road snowplows may have left a snowbank and you should have a shovel with you to make an entrance through it. If snow prevents you from driving in to the cabin, we will give a full refund or a rain check, at your option. We discovered that one can get a "snow depth" report with this search phrase: "snow depth, Catskill, NY, Weatherstreet”. . WATER: The Potic Creek flows out of a reservoir serving the Town of Catskill, so we know its clean, however, no surface water is recommended for drinking. There is a drilled well in front of the cabin, and a solar powered submersible pump at the bottom of the well. When the pump is turned on, water flows from a brass pipe at the top of the well. This pump replaced a hand pump - shown in one of the photos - which was charming, but never worked very well. There is a timer switch on the frame on the entrance door which you turn clockwise 1/4 turn. That will automatically shut off the pump in 15 minutes to prevent damage if one forgets to turn it off. We had to have the well re-drilled deeper in 2015. Since then, the water has been discolored - we don’t know if in time it will settle out and be clear, or not. So you may wish to bring some bottled water for drinking. The water from the river can be used for drinking or cooking if you boil it. CELL PHONE SERVICE: We get service on our iPhones there -- IT DEPENDS ON YOUR PROVIDER. We have ATT. There is a queen size air bed. There is an electric air pump for it, but also a foot operated air pump - as the electric one won’t operate unless the storage battery is nearly 100% charged. If you use the airbed, before you go, please fully deflate it and return to the same place. Do not over inflate the mattress, just slightly firm to the touch. To deflate, you need to insert a small rod such as a pencil into the air opening to bypass the automatic air seal. In our experience, Airbeds often develop a leak after come months of use, so we have a second one there in case that happens. If it does, please let us know so we can replace it. Same is true for any supplies that you see running low - please let us know so we can re-stock them. When you book we send a list of things we try to keep stocked at the cabin. Notes for the Potic Creek Cabin – update for 2016. We have installed a timer on the lighting circuit at the cabin. This is to prevent the problem some guests have caused by leaving the lights on when they leave. Leaving the lights on 24/7 drains the storage battery of the solar electric system. So you will now see a timer mounted next to the solar control panel and storage battery. By turning the knob clockwise, it turns the lights on for up to an hour. [This is separate from the timer for the water pump]. A small inconvenience, perhaps, but better than having a guest to find no electric. Please print this information and take it with you. After you book it, we will email a map, wood stove instructions, a primer on starting campfires, key information, etc. To reiterate: If you wish to stay in this cabin, please be prepared to leave it clean and take away your trash. We cannot travel there between every guest's visit. We can only re-stock and clean it periodically, if you are not prepared to do housekeeping at the end of your stay, please don't book it. Thank you. Andrew Peck and Chloe Dresser Post script: Because the wood road in to the cabin is a bit over a mile long, and has several forks and turns, we have been meticulous in preparing both a map and written directions to get there. For years, no guest had a problem finding it. Then in 2014, 2 guests had difficulties. Turned out this was because they were attempting to use their iphone to look at the map. Don't rely on that alone, print out the map of the wood road and the directions, they are well done, detailed, and accurate. Followed step by step, there is no reason to have any problem. August, 2015 update: Someone whom we have not met, but believe was a neighboring property owner has twice spoken to our guests when they were driving in on Quarry Road to our cabin. The first time, he told the guests they didn’t have the right to use Quarry Road, he owned it [or something like that]. The second time, he simply said he was concerned about fire safety, as there had been a drought. That is a concern we share, and around the fireplace the ground is covered with gravel. So if someone tells you he "owns the road," you can take it with a grain of salt, he may indeed own the land, we of course have a right of way on the road to come to the cabin, just as other property owners along Quarry Road do. Finally, if you'd like to check out all our seven retreats, since 3 of them are off the grid like this cabin, here's how: To view all our listings: From any of our listings, click on my photo, then, next page you come to, click my photo again. Then on that page, scroll down and click "view all listings" and you'll come to our seven retreats. Guest AccessThe land to the north [that is, the upstream direction] is posted. In all other directions, there are hundreds of acres not posted and good for hiking, exploring, hunting in season, etc. The best fishing around is not the Poetic Creek, but the nearly Catskill Creek, and the more distant, famous for trout - Esopus Creek. [You can (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) them if you're a fisherperson]. Interaction with GuestsTexting and emailing to BOTH of us is the best way to reach one of us if you have a question. The NeighborhoodWe love that it is so remote and private, at the very end of a 1 1/2 mile wood road. If there's snow, it won't be plowed, you would need a four wheel drive to reach it in the snow. If you book it and there's snow so you can't reasonably drive in, we will give a rain check [snow check?] or a full refund - your choice. The road is passable by all but very low to the ground cars, except for the last 300 feet to the cabin which is steep, and should not be driven down unless you have four wheel drive. Before that steep part, there is a parking area. Other Things to NoteNote: Soon after you book, we send detailed information and attachments, with maps, directions, and key information. If you don't see it within a few hours, check spam folder, if not there, let us know promptly. For anything time sensitive, text messages AND emails [to both of us] are more likely to get through than phone, we live in a mountaintop cabin with intermittent cell service. The second "bed" is a queen size air mattress. Since periodically, they get a leak and fail, we have an extra one for a backup - if one fails and you need to use the backup please let us know so we can replace it. There is an electric air pump that runs off the solar electric power. There is a manually operated air pump, since the electric one only works if the battery is nearly 100% charged. October 2015 update We have had over 100 guests since starting to share this cabin in 2008, and have done out best to give a full description of this “camping cabin” so guests know what to expect. This has been successful, as we can tell from the reviews. Despite our detailed description, this October two different guests were not satisfied so we are disclosing what they saw as a problem. [And some guests see as a plus] First, we had a guest call and say they didn’t know it was going to be so remote, plus, they saw a sign along the road in to the cabin that reads “Warning – Bear Area.” We have never seen a bear in that area, and black bears are shy of people anyway. We take the sign as our neighbor’s adolescent attempt at humor. Second, another guest wrote that they had turned around and left because the road in was “completely washed out,” with a ditch “at least one and a half feet deep down to bedrock.” When we went to check it out, we found that they were referring to a ditch [about 6 inches deep], that has been there for years, along the right hand side of the road. It did not interfere with passage, as the road to the left of the ditch was still 10 or 12 feet wide. Mice are a fact of life in a country cabin. Periodically, we set traps and get rid of them, but soon enough, more get in. If seeing a mouse would bother you, the cabin is not for you. The cabin is owned by one of our companies, Dresser Properties LLC. We are your hosts, Andrew Peck and Chloe Dresser. When you book, we will send our contact information in case any questions arise before or during your stay. So we add this in hopes that guests who would be afraid in the wilderness, or timid about driving on a country back road, [we can drive in in our Prius, which has quite low clearance] will choose another place more to their liking. A guest suggested we put a caution to dog owners about mushrooms and ticks. There is no more danger there than anywhere else in the Catskills. Both are found in the country. We did once see a porcupine there, and if your dog encounters one, it can be a painful experience. A guest sent us a favorable review, which we copy in it's entirety not to toot our own horn, but because it serves to reiterate and emphasize some points that prospective guests should not overlook: “This cabin is the perfect get away from the hustle of the city. The rustic cabin is totally secluded and right next to a small creek. There is a single room that has a queen bed, two chairs, and a wood stove. There is a large dining table, two burner stove, and sink. There are plenty of pots and pans, a few glasses, and a few utensils. There is a cooler to keep things chilled. There is a large beautiful screened in porch that overlooks the creek. There is no running water in the house, but there is an electric well outside the front door. There is an outhouse several yards from the house. Toilet paper, paper towels, candles, hand soap, and detergent is provided. Firewood was also provided and very much appreciated. The wood stove keeps you very warm in the house, and there is also a fire pit in front of the cabin. The solar power provides enough power to light the cabin in the evenings and keep your cell phone charged. Bring your own pillows,bedding, and towels. NOTE- The cabin is at the bottom of a steep hill. You must have a 4-wheel drive or you will not be able to get back up the hill. Park your car at the top of the hill and walk down. There is an honor system when it comes to cleaning the cabin. Make sure and leave the cabin clean and inviting for the next guests. Let the owner know if things need to be restocked. Catskill is under 10 miles away and has a nice grocery store, Wal-Mart, and plenty of restaurants. Happy Camping!!!”

The SpaceCome enjoy life on a farm, just 2.5 hours from NYC! Guests to our farm stay get the best of farming, enjoying visits with our goats and sheep, and getting to know our friendly, adorable ponies. Children can look for eggs, take a riding lesson on our adorable Shetland pony (for an extra fee), and snack on treats in the garden. We have a wooded nature walk on the property, with access (by appointment) to a kayak and a canoe to take out on our wide, sprawling creek. We offer tours to our guests to meet the animals, see the garden, and visit with the animals. The sunny 2-bedroom cottage is in a renovated barn on 4 acres of pasture, creek, and woods, adjacent to the owners' 10-acres. Look outside the windows and you'll see ponies and sheep grazing in the pasture, and, quite likely, a flock of heritage-breed chickens happily free-ranging. The apartment is fully furnished and comes with everything you need, including a fully-outfitted kitchen, towels, pillows, 100% cotton bed sheets, and blankets. Everything is recently renovated: new appliances, including a gas stove, dishwasher and refrigerator. Also new bathroom, and new pine floors. Each bedroom (a smaller and a larger) contains a queen-sized bed with a cotton futon mattress. Additionally, there is a queen-sized futon mattress in the loft, and a futon-couch in the living room. The living room and kitchen are in one large room, and are separated by a round farmhouse-style oak table and chairs. Up a sturdy farm ladder is the loft, equally suitable for playing on raindays, or for creating a third sleeping area. For winter getaways, there is a woodstove by the kitchen, and a woodpile by the driveway. Outside of the apartment there is a lawn area and portable fire pit, perfect for grilling and relaxing. The lawn looks out, to one side, on the ponies' pasture. Here, two Shetland ponies are grazing, as is our Nubian goat herd, who would love for you to come and pet them, and maybe feed them your apple cores. Meanwhile, straight ahead and down a small hill, there is a pony paddock, and a stable. Our farm stock changes steadily, but there are always chickens and our extremely popular free-range bunny Greylock. Sometimes, depending on the season and the year: turkeys, ducks, chicks, pigs, lambs and goat kids. There is also a private garden for the exclusive use of the cottage guests. One of the highlights of this rental is that guests can take part in the farm activities. Guests are encouraged to look for eggs, and to enjoy a dozen eggs per weekend (if the hens are laying; in the winter they slow down on their egg-laying). Guests may also pet the goats, hold baby chicks when we have them, and pet the goat kids when we have them. This rental is very family-friendly, and we have seen that children especially have a fabulous time visiting with our animals and taking part in farm life. It is a really wonderful thing to see a city child helping to round up the chickens, or gently holding the chicks, or picking green beans and tomatoes from the garden. There are also trails through the woods, and a creek where our local wild population a heron, wood ducks, and beavers can often be spotted. We offer self-guided tours and scavenger hunts through the woods and farms for children. We also always supply a list of local food producers where you can buy meat, eggs, milk, cheese, soap, honey, etc. We are located in Earlton, NY, a tiny hamlet that is about 10 minutes from Greenville and Coxsackie. In either of these towns you can find grocery stores, libraries, banks, etc for all your town needs. We are also less than 10 minutes from Boehm Farm, a family-run pick-your-own apple and peach orchard. Also 10 minutes to Greenville's incredible town park, which has several miles of wooded trails along stone walls and a river. Further west, we are 45 minutes to Catskill National Park, including the world class skiing resorts, Windham and Hunter Mountains. In addition to skiing and snow-tubing, the Catskills offer spectacular outdoor destinations such as Kaaterskills Falls and North-South Lake, and other attractions such as Zoom Flume, a fabulous water park. 30 minutes south is the historic, artsy City of Hudson, a destination in itself. Here, you'll find an eclectic mix of antique shops that are almost like curated museums; wonderful restaurants like DaBa (inventive Swedish cuisine using locally sourced foods) and Baba Louie's (sourdough pizza and family-style salads), and amazing coffee shops like Rev. From May through October, there is a lot of food trucks. Our family (two adults, a 16-year old boy and a 12-year old girl) lives next door to the cottage, on an adjacent 10 acres. We are available to help with any questions, and to show you around the farm during appointed times-- or to leave you to enjoy your privacy if you prefer. One thing to note: although the inside of the apartment is newly renovated, the outside of the apartment still has vinyl siding (restoring the outside is a future project!), and the downstairs basement and the barn next door are not part of the rental. Also, this is an old-fashioned country retreat; there is no wifi or television, although smartphones usually work. And we do keep some dvd's on hand for guests who've brought a laptop. Keep up with our farm happenings on the usual social media platforms! Guest AccessGuests have access to our farm and woods. They can pet ponies, mingle with chickens, hang out with goats over the fence. They can also contract with our daughter for riding lessons ($20/hour). Guests are strictly forbidden from entering gated pastures or stalls without the owners present. Interaction with GuestsWe generally spend about an hour with the guests on their first morning, giving tours and answering questions. After that we are usually around to answer questions and chat, but guests are mostly happy on their own. The NeighborhoodBeautiful rural area in the Hudson Valley, at the foot of the Catskill Mountains. Getting AroundThere is virtually no public transit. Guests should have a car to enjoy the area. Other Things to NoteOur low-tech farm cottage does not come with wi-fi, telephone, or TV.

Want to walk on 41 acres of land or lie on a hammock, under a magnolia tree, and hear the sound of cow bells? Want to eat outside, either on the porch, or the patio, or inside in the dining room or on the antique country table? Wake up with the sunlight streaming in, and usually a few deer visible in the 2nd pasture. Or look over at the small pond, where frogs are making that great sound. Do you want to sit in the sun-room listening to music, with the fireplace and the 'entertainment' system, or in the living room, with the wood burning stove, and the floorplanks that are 140 years old? And then, when everyone announces they are starving there is the large, beautiful kitchen, open to all the views, making chopping a delight, or the back to basics charcoal BBQ. Best of all, at the end of a day of antiquing, fishing, swimming in a lake, kayaking, playing minigolf and seeing a movie, settle into a HUGE bathtub, and just soak. For us, this place is heaven. We hope it is for you too. Keywords: Farm, country house, Hudson Valley home, Catskills vacation home, weekend retreat,

......This is as private as it gets! At the very end of a 1 1/2 mile wood road on 11 forested acres with 800 feet of frontage on the Potic Creek. No houses in sight - or earshot. This is a charming 'Camping Cabin' in the woods. It has a large screened porch overlooking a meadow and the Potic Creek, a stream that flows from a reservoir serving the town of Catskill down to the Hudson River. The cabin is insulated and has an efficient Napoleon Timberwolf airtight wood stove. There is a queen size Murphy bed. This property is owned by Dresser Properties LLC. Your hosts are Andrew Peck and Chloe Dresser. Pricing: . The rates are discounted for more than 2 nights. When you make an inquiry, ask, and we will confirm the discounted rate. ......Since the cabin is remote and off the grid, the only electricity is supplied by three solar panels on the roof that keep a deep cycle marine battery charged. An inverter has an output of up to 40 watts AC as well as 12 volt DC power. That's enough for the water pump, 2 - 40 watt equivalent DC CFL lamps, and for operating or charging small electronic devices. For water, you plug the cable form the pump into the solar charge controller, and water flows from the well near the front door. The forest has lots of wildlife, deer, bear, wild turkeys, foxes, raccoons, great horned owls, etc. There is a 2 burner propane Coleman camp stove, and outside, a fire place with a grill, For complete information, be sure to click 'More Details' below. ......In June 2013 we installed a small solar electric system to operate the water pump that pumps from a drilled well, 2 lamps, and has the ability to charge small electronic devices. . t is an idyllic getaway for those who appreciate nature and spending time in the wilderness. It is about 25 miles north of Woodstock, about 2 hour drive from the GWB. . When we started thinking about the possibility of sharing cabins [we have a few off the grid camps], the question was, how can we do it? The question we faced was, how to make it reasonable in cost, and at the same time, provide the needed cleaning and housekeeping that goes with having a rental. Hiring a housekeeper to change sheets and towels right away makes costs that may make the price for a 'camping cabin' more than folks would feel was fair. Our goal was to be able to keep this charming spot, not as a profitable business, but at least have most of the expenses and taxes covered. . Originally we thought only renting for a week minimum would be practical if we had to hire a housekeeper between every guest. But initial inquiries were for weekends or long weekends. So if that was going to work, we had to figure a way to make that reasonably priced. So to keep costs reasonable, we ask that guests be prepared to bring their own sleeping bags and towels, and, 'leave it as they found it.' We figured most guests who were interested in this type of retreat would be respectful of the cabin and of the next guest, and that has been true. . We started sharing another cabin in this way in 2011, and have been gratified that every guest but one [of more than 60] has left the cabin in good shape and clean for the next guest. Once a month or so, we check out the cabin and restock supplies, if needed. At the cabin are plates, glasses, utensils, toilet paper, paper towels, a Coleman 2 burner stove for cooking and propane fuel for it. As It is camping, we ask that you bring sleeping bags, candles and/or flashlights, etc. - what you would for any camping trip. In front of the cabin there’s a small stone fire place and with a grill. Starting August 2013, we are providing cut seasoned firewood. There is a maul [a fat axe] for splitting cut logs to the appropriate diameter. The firewood is provided for heating the cabin with the woodstove and fires for cooking in the fire place in front of the cabin only, NOT for bonfires. Please do not make fires outside other than in that one fire place. While it is cut to length, some larger pieces may require splitting with the maul. For the wood stove, up to 5' or 6' diameter works once the fire is going. for starting the fire, and, for cooking in the outside fireplace, it's best to split fire wood to 1 1/2 to 3 inch diameter. IN DRY SEASON BE SURE NO COMBUSTIBLES ARE NEAR THE FIRE PIT WHEN YOU MAKE A FIRE, AND DON'T LEAVE AN UNATTENDED FIRE. . For heat, there is an excellent, very efficient Napoleon Timberwolf airtight wood stove. We will send instructions in case you are not familiar with the use of airtight wood stoves. There is an outhouse about 100 feet from the cabin. Sometimes in the coldest weather, the drain pipe from the sink will freeze. . THE ROAD: The wood road in is 1 1/2 miles long. With a regular car it's not a problem. We have a Prius, which is quite low to the ground, and we have taken it there a few times with no problem, driving cautiously over a few rough spots. October . 2013 update: We have had 30 or 40 guests in the past couple of years, and for the first time, a guest reported that the bottom of her car scraped on one of the rough spots. We have used our Prius a number of times to go there with no problem and assumed it was one of the lowest cars around, but on researching it now, find that there are a few cars, hers was one, that have less ground clearance. While her car had no damage, if this is a concern for you, we can check the ground clearance of your model of car to advise you. [Our 2008 Prius has 5 1/2 inches of clearance, the new Priuses slightly less]. . The last 300 feet, however, are quite steep and rough, unless you have a high clearance 4 wheel drive truck, walk this last part. . WINTER: If there is more than 3 inches of snow, you would need a four wheel drive vehicle, as only the first part of the road may be plowed.. With snow, the last 300 feet to the cabin would need to be walked short of having a snowmobile ; - ). If you book it for winter, and it snows, there are two options. If you don't have 4 wheel drive, with good tires you can drive to the last hill if the snow is light, you'd have to walk the last 300 feet. If there is deep snow, even with 4WD you wouldn't want to drive in. If snow prevents your going, will will give a rain check or a refund - the option is yours.. . . WATER: The Potic Creek flows out of a reservoir serving the Town of Catskill, so we know its clean, however, no surface water is recommended for drinking. There is a drilled well next to the cabin, and we have a 12 volt DC submersible pump at the bottom of the well that runs off the solar electric system. The power cord that comes from the well plugs into the solar charge controller next to the battery, and about 2 gallons a minute flow from a 1/2 inch flexible pipe at the top of the well. This pump replaced a hand pump - shown in one of the photos - which was charming, but never worked very well. . CELL PHONE SERVICE: We get cell phone service at the cabin -- IT DEPENDS ON YOUR PROVIDER. We have ATT. . New as of August 2013: Under the Murphy bed is stashed a queen size air mattress. Next to the solar charge controller is an electric air pump for it. If you use it, before you go, please fully deflate it and return to the same place. Do not over inflate the mattress, just slightly firm to the touch. To deflate, you need to insert a small rod into the air opening to bypass the automatic air seal. Notes for the Potic Creek Cabin – update July 2nd 2015 We have installed a timer on the lighting circuit at the cabin. This is to prevent the problem some guests have caused by leaving the lights on when they leave. When that happens, if the next day is cloudy, having the lights on continuously drains the storage battery of the solar electric system. So you will now see a timer mounted next to the solar control panel and storage battery. By turning the knob one rotation to the right, it enables the lighting to be on for an hour. [This is in addition to the timer by the door for operating the water pump]. After an hour, one must reset the timer if lighting is still needed. A small inconvenience, perhaps, but better than some guests arriving to find no electric. . Please print this information and take it with you. Update 2016 We had the well drilled deeper after it went dry. Since then the water, although potable, has discoloration from clay in the rocks below. You may want to bring bottled water for drinking.
