Cabins are rustic yet inviting, encouraging re-connection with earth, body and spirit for healing, inspiration and conversation. The cabins are situated within close walking distance of each other, yet are spaced far enough apart to allow for privacy and solitude. There are over 135 acres of diverse forest land to explore right outside your door.
Our clean, quaint composting outhouses are earth-conscious and add character to your experience. Commodes are also available indoors.
All facilities are supplied with an equipped kitchen, basic condiments, cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, and dish towels.
We do not provide linens for the beds, bath towels, food, or housekeeping. We ask that you leave the cabins as you find them. We practice the Wilderness Ethic: What you carry in, you carry out.
We are committed to keeping MorningStar available and affordable to all. Our suggested donation for use of this cabin, the land, and its resources is as follows:
Nightly cabin rentals are $50 to $60 for the first person, and $30 for each additional adult, per night. There is a charge of $10 per night per additional child. The appropriate donation for an extended stay of over seven days will be determined on a case-by-case basis. A non-refundable $55 deposit is required at the time of reservation and is applied to the first night’s stay. Late check out is available.
