Everything you could want in a home away from home. Paul Bunyan sleeps six and welcomes you and your family/friends to a 1,000 square foot 2-story Scandinavian-scribed log cabin made of Aspen logs from the Justin farm. This log home is spacious while being cozy. Some folks call this glamping. ”Glamping, or glamour camping, one of the MaryJane’s pet concepts, is about the juxtaposition of rugged and really pretty, grit and glam, diesel and absolutely darling.”-The New York Times.
A guided tour of the full-circle first floor begins to your left in the living area with a 250 channel satellite TV and DVD player, a couch and 2 arm chairs. Wide plank cedar floors beneath your feet lead you to a large gas fireplace with stacked stone topped by a polished travertine mantel. Next you’ll see a hand-crafted queen size log bed and handicap accessible bathroom complete with a shower chair. Rounding the corner and heading outside is a full porch complete with 4 log chairs, gas grill and picnic table. Back inside the cabin on your left you’ll find a small full kitchen with a sink, microwave, coffee maker, full-size stove, 20 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, dishes, silverware, knives, a few pots and pans. You’ll also find sleeping arrangements for two more in the twin size mission-style bunk beds.
Venturing up the log stairs to the second floor, you’ll find hickory floors throughout. Outside an 8 x 26 foot covered balcony with wicker chairs overlook gardens, a playhouse and open lawn. You’ll love the giant A-Frame overhang where you can read or relax outdoors without having to worry about the weather or anyone seeing you. Back inside on your right is a huge Ultra Bath whirlpool bathtub and a king size hand-crafted log bed. Around the corner is a video viewer, bentwood hickory rocker, 1920’s hand-stitched quilt and a full bathroom.
Bat & barn swallow lovers appreciate that there are no pesky mosquitoes while sitting outside.

From the room journal:
“Just what the Dr. ordered! Rest, Relaxation, Quiet with just the right amount of fun exercise. Such a beautiful place. We especially enjoyed our hikes in the woods with the dog (who loved them even more than we did, I am sure). We seemed to discover something new about the property each time. Now we are excited for snowshoeing season.
Breakfast was always a treat & so satisfying it kept us going for hours.
Highly recommend heading to Ontario and rent a canoe or kayak. The Kickapoo River is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth!
Thanks Donna & Don for a wonderful getaway! Amy, Kris and Roy
P.S. Loved feeding Dusty and Rusty too:)”
