Cardinal on the Table is a vintage Cardinal Trailer located on 12 acres in the remote Tablelands of the Fremont National Forest. Our little home away from home offers you a rustic getaway, with hiking, stargazing and sunsets that never disappoint!
Cardinal on the Table offers a unique getaway for people to unplug and get out in nature. Go off the grid and enjoy the solitude of nature in the middle of the Fremont National Forest. Our little home away from home offers you a rustic getaway, with nearby hiking, fishing and stargazing with some of the darkest skies in North America!
* Please read through all the details of the listing. Our little home away from home is set in a remote location and we want you to be prepared for your stay. We ask you confirm some information when you make your request to book.
Our tiny off the grid trailer has many amenities and comforts, including a kitchenette stocked with your basic essentials, fresh sheets and blankets, and a powerful Mini Stove to keep you warm and toasty on cold nights.
At night, the sky truly comes to life, with the Milky Way stretching from horizon to horizon, a stargazers paradise! We provide astro-binoculars and a star finder for you to get a more detailed look at the constellations and stars.
Explore nearby hiking trails, including the OC&E Trail, Oregon's longest linear park running 109 miles from Klamath Falls to the Sycan Marsh.
A short hike will take you to the Sycan River, part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The Sycan River offers beautiful hiking, fishing and wildlife, and a great place to cool off in the summer.
On your way in or out, enjoy close by Crater Lake and the Gearhart Mountain Wilderness, treasures of Southern Oregon.
Because the Cardinal is off the grid, please keep in mind that there is no electricity or running water available. We do have LED lights inside the trailer for evening lighting. We request that you be prepared to bring your own water for drinking and washing for the duration of your stay.
There is no bathroom inside the trailer, but an outhouse with a composting toilet is located on the property about 20yds from the trailer for your convenience.
The remote location means that cleaning services are not available. You are requested to tidy the trailer before you leave, including changing the sheets, doing dishes, sweep/mop the floors, wipe down all surfaces and empty your urine from the toilet. It is a small trailer, and all cleaning tasks can be completed in a short amount of time.
We follow a Pack-It-In/Pack-It-Out procedure. Garbage bags will be provided, but there is no garbage service in the National Forest. Please take all rubbish with you when you check-out.
Cardinal on the Table is set in a remote location, some cell phone carriers do not offer coverage in our area. We recommend that you have a printed copy of the directions prior to leaving.
Access to our trailer is on unpaved National Forest Roads. During the Winter and Spring months, we recommend an AWD or 4WD vehicle. Be prepared to take it easy as some roads are rough coming in. We do not recommend low clearance vehicles or compact cars.
We provide basic necessities, such kitchen essentials, LED lighting, cleaning supplies, bedding and all the necessary fuel and supplies for the mini stove. Firewood for the outdoor fire pit is not provided, but you may forage the property for deadwood.
Please plan accordingly, and be prepared to bring your own water, food, beverages or special prep items with you.
*When You Request to Book: Please include in your message that you understand that this is a remote location and acknowledge that you will be responsible for cleaning the trailer before you leave. We look forward to hosting you!
You will be able to access all 12 acres the vintage trailer sits on, and continue on into the surrounding Fremont National Forest for more exploration directly South of the property.
Общение с гостями
Because of the remote location, we are unable to greet each guest. You are welcome to check-in anytime after 2pm, information about accessing the trailer will be made available before your arrival.
No smoking in the trailer. If you smoke outside, please extinguish your cigarette completely and dispose of properly.
Please only use the Mini Stove inside for boiling water, or cooking small, non-greasy items. All other items, especially meats must be cooked outside on the fire pit grate.
Please keep your noise level down after 10pm out of respect for full time residents on the Tablelands. Even though we are in a remote location, voices easily carry through the trees.
Out of respect for our human and ruminant neighbors, please no shooting or hunting on the property. Our closest neighbor has 100 and 50 gallon propane tanks, and it is a safety issue for any firearms to be used on private property.
Please no candles or other lit items in the trailer outside of the wood burning stove.
We want your pets to have a great trip too, but we ask that you mind your pets and not let them wander off. Please pick up any pet waste and wipe dirty paws before they come into the trailer.
Please do not disturb, cut or chop any live or standing trees to encourage new and old growth.
We do not have any garbage service in the National Forest, so please pack out all trash from your stay with us.
Please do not remove any items from the trailer. They are made available for every guest to enjoy.
Directly South of the trailer is the Fremont National Forest for you to enjoy and explore. Please respect all other land that is privately owned. If you decide to wander North, West or East of the rental, please stay on the roads and do not enter onto someone’s land unless invited.
We love the hiking, camping, and anything that involves disconnecting from technology. We spend as much of our free time in the great outdoors, and are fortunate to call Oregon home.
We're all about exploring new places, and are happy out in the middle of nowhere, or in the hustle and bustle of a big city. We love to keep things local, exploring what makes each destination great! We're excited to share our little slice of heaven out in nature, and hope you find it as amazing as we do!
