We named this cabin “Toshiros” after the fabulous Japanese Samurai Actor Toshiro Mifune!!! We are diehard fans of him. This is one view - window looks out toward Petty Mountain and is right next…I mean right outside your window….to a huge cedar tree and Ed’s Creek babbling brook style.

This real flame propane heater stove will keep you toasty and it’s on a raised built-in platform so you can see it while you’re in bed. Or at the foot of the bed is a Barnes& Nobles-style reading/journaling chair…where you can sit and look at the cedar tree directly to your right!! Old timer cedar Grandfather Tree that perfectly compliments our “Mother Tree”….a fallen cedar tree that supports healthy strong growing trees on her ability to gather sustenance from the creek (roots are exposed) …. she found a way to sustain her life and the young trees she gave birth to.
