The SpaceThis is an opportunity for you to see how comfortable Off Grid Living can be. You will have most all the modern conveniences you take for granted like: running water, lights, flush toilet to name a few. Be prepared and bring a cooler because there is no fridge. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed with flannel sheets, wool blanket and comforter. The second bedroom is a spacious room with a Twin Bed blanketed with a Goose Down Comforter. This room also has 2 closets for hanging cloths and storage. The loft has a Queen Sized Foamy and because it is the warmest place in the house it has cotton sheets, wool blanket and comforter. The living room has a large comfy couch and chair. The dinning room has a table and seats 4 very comfortably. The kitchen is equipped with cast iron frying pan, pots and pans, coffee percolator, plates, cups, bowls, and utensils. Take your coffee outside on the deck in the early morning or sit around the fire pit in the evening. The wood shed is full of wood so we make sure you can be nice and warm during your stay. The wood stove is the only source of heat for the cabin so you have to have the knowledge on how to start a fire and how to keep it going if you find the space getting cool. You may even have to split some of the wood in the wood shed at times. A splitting axe is profited if you need to split some wood and its a good and healthy activity for you. We encourage our guests (especially the men) to use the outhouse as much as possible. It is also part of the overall experience of off grid living. Guest AccessYou will have full access to the Log Cabin and the 6 acres it sits on. You will also have access to the woodshed filled with wood. You are free to roam and go explore. Interaction with GuestsIf you have any questions or concerns we live up the road 2 driveways down with a black gate. It is a short walking distance away and can be reach at home most any time of the day. The NeighborhoodLocated 24 km down the Telegraph Road and tucked off the road on the right hand side you will find a cozy Log Cabin situated on a 6 acre parcel of cleared land. You are completely surrounded by wilderness and wild animals. Wake up to hundreds of migrating sparrows one spring morning in your front lawn or go to sleep listening to the boreal owls outside the bedroom window. Be ever so lucky to see and not just hear the roaming pack of wolves in the winter. You are in an area that is peaceful and quiet and has no access to local amenities. Therefore, unplug and unwind and get back into Gods country. Tons of medicinal plants, flowers and herbs grow in this front yard. Try picking and drying some herbs for teas while you are here, or take a natures walk to the Tanzilla River. Fish or just sit and meditate while watching the river flow. No neighbors ... just raw clean beauty up here in the North. Getting AroundDirections: Drive into Dease Lake, BC and turn onto Boulder Avenue (main street) in front of the Super A Store. Drive to the end of Boulder and follow the Road signs to Telegraph Creek. Drive 24 km down the road which is approximately a 20 minute drive. Turn right at the sign posted in front of the cabin titled "16 Mile Cabins". Park, come in and kick your feet back. Other Things to NoteThere is NO telephone or cell phone access at the cabin. There is NO internet access. If you need to contact us or a loved one before you come out to the cabin you can stop at the Northern Lights College in town and use the FREE Internet that they provide.
