Stay overnight in one of our two guest cabins overlooking  Lake Shawn and the Captina Creek which wraps around the property.  Each cabin can sleep up to five to seven guests. Cabin rental is not available unless you are also booking a hunting or fishing package.  The smaller cabin has one bedroom, a bunk room, one bathroom and a main living room with sleeper sofa and fully equipped kitchen.  The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, stove, oven, all cookware and utensils.  The living room has a gas log fireplace for the winter months and a television with Direct TV.  Clean linens and towels are provided as is a charcoal grill and camp fire ring.  The larger cabin has two bedrooms and a wood burning stove.  Both of our cabins have recently been remodeled and offer all of the amenities of home.  Upon request a wood fired hot tub is  available to our overnight guests.
