Wood Cliff Cabin is a secluded four-season retreat, a small hand-built haven providing luxurious beauty and alternative energy, perched on a cliff, 80' above a mountain stream. One room convenience includes a queen loft bed, fully equipped kitchen, deck and plenty of storage. In the adjacent bath house you will find the sauna, shower and composting toilet. Beautiful details complement the treetop views, including the 80’ cliff overlooking our mountain creek. Your host built this unique cabin in 2009, using ten different woods, with forest-honoring window friezes, custom metalwork and local stone.
The cabin is a five minute walk from your car. We will deliver you and your luggage to the site in our Kubota utility vehicle, which you may use during your stay. Once you arrive, we will introduce you to the energy systems. 12-volt batteries supply power for LED lighting, stereo, a ceiling fan, as well as cell phone and laptop charging. Propane runs the refrigerator, cook stove, a wall heater, a Weber grill on the deck, and additional lighting. A lovely woodstove provides warmth and charm. Our delicious well water is gravity-fed to the cabin and bath house.
We welcome travelling contemplatives, romantics, naturalists and artists to our hermitage.
When you are seeking restoration that uninterrupted time offers, come to our quiet retreat and become one with the forest.
Experience conscious consumption and focused attention to details. Enjoy the heightened awareness that only solitude brings.
Give yourself a solo or couple vacation devoted to recovering peace and joy. Slow down to the rhythm of nature and your own pace.
Mike is a professional cabinet and furniture maker. He built the entire cabin as if it were a cabinet and furnished the interior with his own work. Nancy is a calligrapher and artist, and her work adorns the inside of the cabin as well. Our house is five minutes from the cabin, so we are generally available to assist you in any way necessary.

Mike and Nancy have been dreaming of building a small cabin and sauna on this property since 1989. In 2005 Mike built the wood-fired sauna which now also houses the shower and toilet for the adjacent cabin, which was completed in the Spring of 2010. The property is ideally situated, minutes from the Bald Eagle State Forest in one direction and the historic town of Lewisburg, 15 minutes in the other direction.
Listen to the quiet music of the creek, the soft song of the wind in the trees, the welcome interruptions of birds’ many calls. Smell the clean forest air, fragrant pines, pennyroyal or even skunk cabbage! Enjoy the rich mossy forest floor and cozy wood fires. Observe the play of light, constantly changing. Sun rises late to wake you in the loft bed, then sparkles on the water and projects surprise animations and shadows all around the cabin before setting over the deck. Your fresh meals grilled out on the deck or enjoyed inside wake up your taste buds. Perhaps you’ll try a wintergreen berry? Our pure clean well water is truly delicious. Wade in the shallow creek and dunk in the deeper pools. Play with clay from the banks, hug those trees, and touch the stones, bones and cones you will find. In Winter, fire-up the sauna and experience the refreshing feeling.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Wood Cliff Cabin. The amenities are top notch and the craftsmanship of the cabin is amazing. I was extremely impressed by how well stocked the kitchen was. I cannot wait to return in the spring to enjoy the deck and the stream. A most luxurious off grid get away.
Our second time visiting- very relaxing and renewing. 2 day stay really let's us get tranquil. Sitting in the open space of the studio with all the windows and high ceilings makes you feel like you are both inside and outside of nature. Knowing that you are existing ergonomically is satisfying. All that you need for your stay (just bring food and clothes) and you're set. A 15 minute drive into town for a brisk street walk and then back to the cabin. You'll get used to the outhouse. Small price to pay for such a relaxing time.
Highly recommended! I'd love to go back in each season.
Very nice long weekend for two and a dog. The wood burning sauna with single digits outside was perfect. Absolutely beautiful property and a friendly gracious host who provided everything you need short of food and clothes. We would definitely consider a return trip.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this charming and cozy cabin. This was our second stay and we're looking forward to coming back next fall! Mike is a great host! - Melissa & Ervis, NJ.
Our first visit to the tiny cabin this past June was so lovely that we decided we'd stay in every season. The location is just close enough to get to easily and just far enough to feel like you are really getting away. The setting is scenic; the cabin is charming and comfortably appointed; the hosts are gracious. Nearby Lewisburg and Mifflinburg are worth a visit if you want to get out, but you could certainly stay in the cabin (and on the deck) the entire time and not be sorry. We will certainly make this a regular destination and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a tranquil escape to the woods.
