The Phat One
El Gordo sleeps 10 in 3 bedrooms, has a hot tub, a fireplace, and all the amenities. We call it El Gordo. The name’s a play on words. El Gordo in Spanish means the fat one. Also, my father in-law’s nickname is “Gordo”, and he has always really liked this location for a cabin. Plus, the place is pretty “phat” …or so the kids tell me. Like our other cabins, EL Gordo is tucked into the woods well away from the stresses of every day life. Your Cabin in the woods.
El Cuento Del Gordo (The Story Of The Phat One)

A few years ago there was a very heavy winter storm that knocked down several trees including very old Cherry, Walnut and Hickory. Rather than burn the trees as firewood, a band saw was brought in and we made lumber out of the mess. Because of this custom cut lumber we have been able to create a very unique Luxury Cabin with lots of interesting woodwork details. Features like beautiful hand made one-piece headboards and end tables make El Gordo one of a kind.

A Little More On Building

A great deal of effort went into making this cabin “green”. It’s super energy efficient, and we used as little forest products in its construction as possible. We accomplished this through an innovative, award winning technology that incorporates Styrofoam and steel. This type of construction allowed us to make a very open and comfortable interior, while minimizing the foot print of the building. EL Gordo was a real treat to design and build. We had a great time fitting all the pieces into the puzzle, and am sure you’ll have a great time staying in it. The Pricing for this cabin starts at the prices listed in the availability calendar at the upper right hand corner of this page and includes up to 6 adults. Each additional adult is 25.00 per person per night. Children 12 and under are free (1 per paying adult). We do have a three night minimum from Memorial day through Bridge day. Sometimes other reservations leave one and two night holes. Please check with us for availability.
