Looking for an energy  efficient cabin on the minimalist side of life?

This solid, Amish-constructed retreat makes smart use of its 1,248 SF of living space.  The kitchen, dining area & living blend together to form one comfortable great room with open beams, wood floors and a centrally located wood stove.  The full bath and 13×10 main floor bedroom are privately located off the great room.  A stackable laundry and the mechanics room with furnace and hot water heater are cleverly and attractively hidden behind panel doors in the main floor bedroom.

An open stairway leads to the loft sleeping space.  The loft is divided into 2 open sleeping quarters suitable for 2 sets of twin beds or a full/queen bed on each side.  Again – the loft has wood floors and a wood ceiling.

While there is LP forced air heat, the wood stove’s central placement and ceiling fans allow for convection heating throughout the cabin.  The sellers claim it is possible to heat the cabin with wood much of the year.

A very lovely feature of the cabin is the 24×10 3-season porch.  The porch is a nice, welcome entry to the great room.

The 5 acre lot is very pretty!  There are mowed walking trails that lead to bird houses, berry patches and a rock-ringed fire pit.  Towering red pines, ferns and maples and birch – this land looks and feels like a sanctuary.

And then there is the 56×30 metal storage barn with 2 overhead doors.  Part of barn floor is cement, and that is where the built-in workshop is located – nice set up for wrenching bikes.  The barn also has a built-in ski waxing room.  And – there’s enough room left over for your vehicles, boats, kayaks & lawn equipment.

If you mountain bike, you can ride in and out from the cabin on Cable’s CAMBA trail system.  If you cross country ski, there’s the Birkie Trail crossing just down McNaught Rd. and the North End Ski Trails about 1.25 mi. away.

Please take note:  The cabin is offered for sale now, but the property cannot be closed on until March 1, 2015 or later.

Come take a look – make plans – be moved in for late Spring skiing and an entire season of biking!

Directions:  From Cable – Randysek Rd. south to McNaught Rd.  Left 1.25 mi. to property on right.
