"Your Cabin In The Woods Since 1962"

Due to the current rise in Covid cases, starting December 19th, 2021, Little House will not be open to rentals temporarily. We feel that this is best for the safety of our renters. We will be back up and running at a later date. Please check back.  Thank you!

* Please note that we have recently changed our rental time frames. Our daytime rentals will remain the same which is 9am-5pm. We have decided to discontinue our “overnight” rentals and will offer an evening rental in its place. Our rates will remain the same.  The evening rental will be 6pm-12am. Please note that with this new time frame, we expect our renters to have the house completely cleaned up and leave the premises by 12am After 12am, there will be a charge deducted from the deposit of $200. NO EXCEPTIONS! Please plan your visit accordingly so that you will have time to clean up the house before leaving. 

REFUNDS: We understand the things happen and renters may need to cancel. Below is our refund policy. Please read before requesting your date! When a date has been requested, it will be assumed that the renter has read and agreed to our return policy. Deposits will always be fully refunded assuming the house is left exactly how it was found.

30 days or more from the rental date: 100% back. 

Less than 30 days: Refund of rental fee minus 50%. 

10 days or less from the date: No refund will be offered.
