Squirrel Nest Cabin - Living Room with Gas Fireplace
We used old and new to give special character to this cozy cabin.  All of the walls are made of poplar and floors of pinewood.  In the living room, the love seat faces a corner gas log fireplace with a custom fit mantle.  Just above it is the satellite HDTV and a VCR/DVD player.  Squirrel cushions for comfort adorn the handmade Pennsylvanian Amish rocker for your relaxing pleasure.  You may find these wonderful rockers at many shops in the area.  The wood coffee table was hand made locally.  Next to the love seat is a antique table lamp and a corner cabinet that houses some favorite Squirrel knick-knacks, old and new, from various places that just popped out and said "Take me home".  You most definitely know that you are in the Squirrel Nest by all the clever finds and appointments. 



Both cozy bedrooms, queen and double, have hand made locusts beds.  The swing arm wall lamps are for your reading pleasure while relaxing in bed.  The quilts and curtains are from Patch Magic. There is a closet in the one bedroom and an antique hook mirror in the other for your clothes.

Squirrel Nest Cabin - Art

All of the art is original and was found in neat little flea markets and shops from all over.  However, professional photographer Cameron Krone, Marilyn's son, took the black and white photograph of squirrels jumping up for food in a park in Atlanta.  Guest Michael Walker from Sylvania, Ohio gifted us the smaller squirrel photo. Karen Dittman, local American Folk Artist did the Squirrel painting on screen.

The shower bathroom was renovated with a tile floor and a locally made sink vanity originally built for this cabin. All linens are provided.

Squirrel Nest Cabin - Outside Porch with 2 Rocking Chairs, Gas Grill, Cafe Table and Chairs

The front porch features two wood rocking chairs and a small cafe table with 2 chairs.  We found a designer squirrel feeder made by a local artist for your viewing if one might happen to come by for a nut or two.  Old shutters hug the outside windows.  A gas grill is provided for your outdoor dining pleasure.  Or if you prefer to enjoy a meal outside on a beautiful spring or autumn day, we have a separate picnic area with a picnic table just off the porch down the trail. 

We have also provided a Welcome Book in the cabin with brochures and information on activities in the area or check our activities page, where we have provided you with many links to websites of interest for research before your arrival. 


You may not know but the white squirrel is unique to this area.  The rumor says that a circus came through in the 1940's, which featured a pair of white squirrels.  When their cage turned over, they escaped.  They have since bred in this area but are not albinos, rather true white squirrels.  Some people say that this species is not registered as part of the squirrel family.  We haven't investigated this to be true or not.  You may be lucky enough to see one during your stay, one was spotted not to long ago. Have your camera ready, just in case!
