***Happy New Year everyone! We would like to thank all of our guests (over 200), along with their pets, for making Redbud Farm a vacation destination in 2019. We met so many new, interesting people, and also welcomed back many returning friends. We will be taking our yearly break for the months of January and February, and will open back up on March 1. A few folks have already booked some dates in March, so don’t delay if you want to enjoy an early spring getaway!***
You just won't find this kind of seclusion in most state parks or private venues. There are only two other cabins (about 1/2 mile away), and our home (1/2 mile away), on the 170 acre property that is entirely surrounded by Buffalo Creek. Ginseng House is a handcrafted, secluded tiny house built from solid walnut, oak, maple, and poplar hardwoods cut and milled by us on our farm. Quiet, relaxing, private, inspiring. These are some words that describe your unique retreat on Redbud Hill Farm. You don't have to be an artist to rent the cabin, but we guarantee you will leave with your creative batteries recharged and a renewed sense of focus and inspiration. This non-smoking cabin sits 1/2 mile from our home through the woods, perched on Pendleton Point, on the edge of a 40 acre field that borders Buffalo Creek. A new 400 watt solar system with 24 volt battery bank provides solid electricity for lights and small appliances. Very clean outhouse.
If you like to camp, without the hassle and hardship, you will enjoy having a tidy cabin, two comfortable beds, indoor kitchen, a full deck with picnic table, and a setting all to yourself. There is no refrigerator, so you will need to bring a cooler for your food. There is a wonderful old-time country store 1 mile away where you can purchase ice, food, and other supplies. We supply all basic cookware, propane, and utensils. You can have a campfire, hike the trails, look for arrowheads in the fields - (yes, they are there!), birdwatch - kingfishers, ducks, geese, turkeys, bluebirds, even a nesting pair of bald eagles that live on our adjacent property one mile away, canoe, kayak, or swim Buffalo Creek - depending on water levels, or enjoy some smallmouth bass fishing.
Ginseng House has a loft with a comfortable new 12" queen mattress. There is also a fold out love seat on the main floor that sleeps two adults. (PLEASE NOTE: Access to the loft requires climbing a set of ladder stairs that require agility and strength to climb. If you have trouble with heights, balance, or navigating ladders we request that you stay off of the ladder and sleep on the main floor since there is an inherent risk of injury that you assume by climbing into the loft. Only do so if you are very comfortable with your climbing skills. Especially, do not climb into the loft if you have been drinking alcohol or are on medication of any kind).
The one room house is insulated, clean and comfortable. It has beautiful white ash flooring, and ceiling, and black walnut walls, milled from logs on our sawmill. There is a nice wooden kitchen table and chairs in front of a picture window for you to catch sight of some deer, turkeys, fox, or even a bald eagle. The kitchen is inside the cabin, with a sink, supplies, propane stovetop and counter space.
A homemade solar bucket shower is a highlight! A black bucket can be placed in the sun to provide 5 gallons of water for a couple of warm showers per filling. Enjoy a private, off-grid, bucket shower experience, surrounded by trees and sunshine!
This is a semi-rustic, secluded experience. The outhouse is about 30 feet from the cabin. We provide toilet paper and hand sanitizer. We will provide well water for cooking, showers, and cleaning. You will need to bring bottled water for drinking.
PETS ARE WELCOME for $15/night - Please see our pet policy under "Other things to note."
We are located on Redbud Hill Farm, one mile from Bethany, WV, home to Bethany College. The small town has a throw-back general store that has been owned for generations. They have everything you would expect in a well-stocked general store. The college has tennis courts, a swimming pool, raquetball court, fitness center, and library, which are available to the public. Oglebay Park is a 20 minute drive. Wheeling is 30 minutes. Downtown Pittsburgh is a one hour drive. Day trips can include a Moundsville Prison Tour (45 minutes), zip lining at GrandVue Park (45 minute drive), downtown Pittsburgh (60 minutes). Great historic dining (wings are their specialty), at Drover's Inn (15 minutes). The Station Grill in downtown Wellsburg also has a nice ambiance and great food. The immediate local area isn't brimming with culture, though Bethany College (1 mile) and West Liberty University (5 miles) often offer unique musical, athletic, and arts events. Your main purpose for coming here will most likely be to enjoy the quiet solitude of the cabin, hiking the peaceful woods, and maybe an outing on Buffalo Creek.
