I’m a sucker for a good adventure! Enjoying unseen nature, great unique stays, trying something new, and breaking up the typical day to day is always a great time. I tend to camp a lot. It’s my great escape from reality and straight into my daydreams. I also enjoy the occasional backpacking trip. Glamping, though, is something I hadn’t tried until The Cowgirl Cabin!
The Cowgirl Cabin on Lemon Lane Farm was a beautiful stay with a great friend for my birthday. It had everything I enjoy on an outdoor adventure-a hiking trail, distant views, and close-up nature, with a few extra surprises I didn’t expect and considerably less work than a standard camping trip.
The 116-acre farm had a great hiking trail that would be considered moderate by most hiking standards surrounding a large property section. It was the first thing we did as soon as we got there, including checking out the cabin. It went through beautiful moss-covered old-growth forest, some seemingly logged area that allowed for distant views, over a creek and passed beehives, gardens, and a greenhouse!
Once we finished the hike and made our way to the cabin, it was time for dinner. Though totally off-grid, a propane cookstove, a grill, and an old fashioned wood cookstove were available for cooking. Water and a few other amenities made the stay comfortable. One of those amenities, and an important one for September, a wood stove for heating with wood already chopped and ready to go!
While on the property, we enjoyed interacting with some farm animals, touring the gardens and greenhouse, fishing in the pond, and watching the sunset from our deck.
Our host was very kind, helpful, and full of great suggestions and advice for the area.
The cabin was central to many great hikes in the area and ended up being some of the most awesome I’ve completed in a while.
It was a great time. If I ever find myself in the area again, I would definitely consider Cowgirl Cabin or any one of Lemon Lane Farm’s other stays.
