The Woodlands cabin is tucked away in the woods. It is the most isolated, private dwelling. We consider it our honeymoon suite with its comfortable and cozy queen-size bed.
It has a screened-in porch off of the front entryway. The one level, one-room design features a dining space with large, corner viewing windows that face out into the forest. There is a ¾ bathroom with a shower directly off of the bedroom area. A freestanding fireplace is located in one corner in front of the couch. The kitchen has a small refrigerator with a freezer, a two-burner cooktop, a microwave, a coffee pot, crock pot, a large toaster oven, and all the necessary kitchen utensils and dinnerware. A CD player, air conditioner, floor/table fans as well as ceiling fans, additional oil filled heater, off peak electric storage heater, an outdoor grill, Wi-Fi, and an outdoor fire pit are also available.

"This past week is exactly what we needed…a week of nothing to get done except make coffee, wear pajamas and enjoy each other’s company. We felt surprisingly at home in our tiny cabin in the woods. Sad to leave but excited to see your son again and truly blessed to have stayed here this past week."
- Travis & Alexandra, Guests
“Thank you to the keepers of the Shire in the Woods. This is a wonderful place to just get away from it all and relax. The morning sunrises were an excellent greeting to each day when viewed through the two massive windows. I am glad I discovered this place and will definitely be back.”
- Jonathan, Guest
“Third time's a charm! After being sidetracked by illness and icy roads on our first two attempts we finally made it - and how worth the wait it has been. From the friendly welcome to the peaceful silence of the woods, to the coziest cabin imaginable - this has been everything we had hoped for, and more. So tempted to keep this special place a secret to ourselves but afraid we won't be able to resist spreading the word. Thank you and we will be back.”
- Kevin & Michaela, Guests
“I was beyond thrilled to find this special place open again under new management. I took daily walks with my furry pup Callie (thank you so much for allowing dogs) and read and napped to my heart's content. So lovely and quaint was this cabin. I hope you find much success.”
- Kristin, Guest
“When we pulled into the driveway, your wife greeted us with warmth and respect. At that moment we already felt like this was home. All the little touches you and your staff have put into these cabins say welcome to all that enter these doors.”
- Bob & Alina, Guests
“This was my first hermitage and I’m so glad I came here for the experience. The cabin has all the comforts of home, and it helped me to settle, relax and focus on what I came here to do - tune into myself. I enjoyed hiking in the woods, doing yoga, and walking the labyrinth. Thank you for offering such a beautiful and peaceful place.”
- Shona, Guest
“It is fitting that the last words I write this week of my personal writing retreat are words of gratitude and thanks for my week of quiet and privacy. What a beautiful place here at the Shire.”
- LuAnn, Guest
“Time out, silence, and peace. Found myself again. The houses carry an energy of inner peace.”
- Barbara, Guest
“Even though my visit was short, I thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the beaver pond, hiking the back trails, walking the labyrinth and watching the thunder and lightning show. Each time is different and each time is better, if indeed that is possible.”
- Judy, Guest
“I came here to get away from it all and everybody to rejuvenate my soul and the Woodlands helped me do just that. It is absolutely gorgeous back here and I loved watching the trees turn. What a cute, humble cabin, just what I was looking for - beauty, peace and magic.”
- Liz, Guest
“Being by myself in the stillness of this place was wonderful for my body and soul. Walking the trails alone with my own meditative thoughts gave me real peace. A beautiful place to be in the presence of God.”
- Jim, Guest
