Coyote Cabin is the first of several cabins that will be situated on the 92-acre retreat property known as Woodland Retreat at DeSoto. As its name implies, this cabin and retreat property offer guests a peaceful retreat and cool mountain getaway, deep in the woods and high atop Lookout Mountain in Alabama.
Explore waterfalls, parks, shops, and restaurants. Relax by the rock fire pit or on the front porch with a cup of coffee, and enjoy views through a canopy of trees. Wildlife is spotted frequently on the property, and a beautiful hiking trail winds through part of the property - perfect for picnics on the ground! Renew, refresh, and be restored!
**THE RETREAT PROPERTY** Not long after you turn onto the private road that winds through the retreat property, you will see Coyote Cabin on your left, along with your own private parking area (2 cars max). Nearby, you will see a hiking trail on the right side of the private road, and then The Otter Box Cabin (also listed), on the left side of the road.
Beside your parking area at Coyote Cabin, there are stairs leading up to the cabin's entrance from the parking area. At the top of the stairs, you will appreciate the views from the covered porch area. This is a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy the views :)
Stepping inside the cabin, you will know your peaceful retreat has begun as you are surrounded by windows that reveal the most beautiful "treehouse views." From every window, you will see refreshing views through a canopy of trees. Be sure to look up and notice the beautiful wood ceiling that was built by the homeowners and upcycled from hurricane-weathered wood planks on Alabama's own coast in Baldwin County.
Moving into the main living area, you will appreciate the sight of a large comfortable sofa and loveseat. The sofa folds out to a queen bed when there are 6 guests. There is an electric fireplace for your enjoyment, and for movie nights in, there is a 55" HD television in the living room with fast Wi-Fi for streaming your own favorite channel subscriptions. A DVD player is also available if you'd like to bring your favorite DVDs.
Directly next to the living room area is the dining area and kitchen. There is seating for up to six with two additional chairs on the front porch. In the kitchen, there is a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, cooking pots, can opener, pans and utensils, dishes, drinking glasses, eating utensils, cooking spices, coffee mugs, and more.
A primary bedroom boasts beautiful window views. There is a closet, and for the bed, there is a queen bed and with comfortable bedding for your rest and relaxation.
The secondary bedroom also has a queen bed, and there is a sitting bench beside the bed that can be used to climb into the big, comfy bed as the thick mattress and box springs give it more height.
A full bathroom includes a full tub/shower combo and sink vanity. Directly across the hall from the bathroom, there is a full laundry room with a washer and dryer available for your convenience, as well as a fold-out ironing board with iron. You will also find extra quilts, a portable fan and a sofa-bedding kit.
Back outside and near the cabin, you will notice a rock fire pit designed with your retreat in mind. You are welcomed to use any small pieces of fallen wood that can safely fit inside the fire pit, and firewood bundles are sold at nearby stores. Please only burn firewood, as the homeowners and guests roast food over this fire pit. Extendable roasters are located in a kitchen drawer for your convenience, so be sure to bring ingredients for s'more memories.
Near the fire pit is your Charcoal/wood-burning Campground-Style BBQ Grill with a metal bucket and lid to collect grill ashes :)
