Lovely 158 yr old farm house in the woods on a one lane trail with pets, a great porch and yard. Bring food/provisions/ice. We did not realize that the area shuts down in the off season, it was quite a drive to acquire food.

Hi Karen, I have a bag of ice in the freezer of the refrigerator in the kitchen. Sorry you couldn't find it. I will put this in a note for future guests. Thanks for you suggestion and staying at my place. Sincerely, Kathleen

Super charming place; feels like you're in the middle of nowhere but you're only 5 mins away from downtown Silver Lake. The home has the best little touches and Kathleen is super warm and stays out of your way. The fresh eggs were some of the yummiest ever! And Sitka, the…
