Just back to basics

Cabin living is rustic but comfortable. It's a simpler lifestyle with heat and electricity, but no running water. "What's this?" you say! No running water?! No problem!

Residents haul water in five-gallon jugs for cooking, brushing teeth, and hand-washing. For a complete body cleanup, you can always visit the local public swimming pool to take a shower or sauna (university students usually go to the university gym). Cabins have clean outhouses.

Privacy & outdoors

Trees provide privacy. Enjoy the quiet. Most cabins are situated on one acre of land. Trails for skiing and walking are nearby. Enjoy the outdoors.

This video explains — better than we can — about living in a small cabin.
