NEW IN 2018!
We’ve made a few decorative changes at Wilderness Lodge, and are in the process of a major addition!
Additionally, we will be posting signs similar to the one below around the property.
While you are exploring… these will help to be sure you don’t miss any photo opps!
However, the EXCITING addition is coming in the next month or so…
the Teepee at Wilderness Lodge!
The 14′ diameter teepee has been delivered, a local carpenter is building a spacious deck (24′ x 28′)
where the teepee will be placed alongside the creek.
We have an accomplished local artist painting the exterior of the teepee (completed) in a theme
capturing some of the surroundings at Wilderness Lodge.
If all goes on schedule (weather permitting, working around reservations) we expect that the teepee should be in place sometime in June.
(please follow updates below).

Progress with the deck- pickets being added to the railing. There will also be a 10″ wide board on top of the railing that guests can use to eat at (stools will be purchased), use laptop, and so on. Two sets of steps will come off the deck to the ground area near creek where there will be a campfire, and a large set of steps will allow access from the driveway. Picnic table and Adironack chairs are planned to be placed on the deck, too.
Photographs of the entire teepee will be available when it is installed on the deck.
It will be “business as usual“ for the rental of
The teepee will be available for use by registered guests only
privately situated by the creek yet can be seen from the house. We’ll have a couple rocking chairs and Adirondack chairs for you relaxation creekside!
Maybe the guys want to spend a night in the teepee while the ladies want the comfort of the log home.
Or, the kids want to sleep in the teepee… what an experience for their summer vacation!
Maybe a “teepee for two“! (see details below)

WHAT IS THE COST?
There is no additional charge at this time* for the use of the teepee when renting the log home or apartment.
Prices for rental of apartment and cleaning fee is at the bottom of the page.
Parties of one or two (maximum) people who determine that the log home is more space than they need,
or have budget constraints have the
option of renting the teepee with the garage apartment (restrictions apply).
This offers more than a primitive camping experience, but less than all the luxuries of the log home,
but with use of the HOT TUB, gas grill, campfire along with a price savings!
Sleep in the teepee with additional use of the amenities in the garage apartment
(open floor plan includes: leather sofa & chair, queen size bed, gas log heater, sky lights

Please realize that the apartment/teepee combination is an option we are offering that’s focused on individuals with a budget,
and occupancy of only one or two people.
The garage apartment is very comfortable and is only accessible from ground level by a spiral staircase (a limitation for entry and exit with lots of luggage, groceries, etc.).
We also are not allowing the rental of the teepee/apartment combination to anyone with children;
the house is much more suitable.
We have to impose the restrictions listed, and also to offer the best opportunities for people who want the experience of Wilderness Lodge… the log home.
