What To Bring When Staying In Our Cabins

Our cabins at Burgdorf are simple and rustic. Remember they are sparsely furnished log cabins, so you need to come prepared. In each cabin you can expect a wood burning stove for heat and bed with a recently purchased mattress and mattress cover, a clean sheet upon which to place your desired bedding or sleeping bag, as well as a table and chairs.  Most cabins have a side shelf where you can prepare your meals, some have covered porches. The cabins do not have electricity or water. Some limited LED lighting has recently been purchased and provides limited ambient lighting. Outhouses are close by and firewood is on the porch. All cabins are within walking distance to the office and pool area. The surrounding area is scenic and natural.

Think camping with a cozy fire, in a clean cabin, with a bed…

Cabins:  are clean, rustic, constructed of logs with wood floors, with wood stoves, no plumbing.  Each has an outhouse and toilet paper, but always a good idea to bring additional toilet paper for your days out adventuring. Some rechargeable battery lighting will be fitted and to remain inside your cabin, but please bring your own lamps as well to safely move about the property (to the pool, your outhouse, etc). 

Beds:  We have just purchased new mattresses, and mattress covers, including queen, full and twin sizes. You will be given a clean sheet to cover the mattress on which to place your own sleeping bag, pillow, or desired bedding.  

Utensils and Supplies:  Please bring your own cooking utensils, supplies and camp stoves if desired.  It is possible to carefully use pans on the wood heat stoves, but please be mindful of fire danger. Pro-Tip: Pre-wrapped breakfast burritos in tin foil that can be easily heated on the stove make for an easy and delicious meal. 

Food Available on Site:   We will have a limited menu available to be prepared and taken back to your cabin, including locally pre-made pizza that we bake onsite, along with assorted snacks, coffee, tea, and baked treats from Stacey Cakes in McCall.  We will be looking at also stocking frozen burritos which can easily be heated on a woodstove. 

Water:  Refreshing drinking water is available from our spring via a central spigot near the store, but must be carried to your cabins, so please bring a container.

Fuel: We do carry gasoline onsite for purchase in limited amounts including regular and ethanol free gasoline to fuel up during your stay or before you leave.

Clothing: Please bring a swimsuit and towel, in addition to clothing appropriate to the season and mountainous setting.
