Off-Grid The Birdhouse - Tiny Cabin partially finished Interior

Get away from it all when you stay under the stars at out beautiful 72 acre Camp ikigai Animal Sanctuary and Campground 501c3 property. Each stay supports our efforts. We are a fully off-grid property with very limited power. There is lighting and power available to plug in phones and low power draw devices. Please do not plug in anything high power as it can overload the entire system causing it to shut down.

This is a 10x12 Tiny Cabin with a with a queen bottom bunk and a single top bunk.

The entire cabin is the guests. Everything else is communal/shared.

This is inside an animal sanctuary. The animals freely roam. Pets are welcome but the handler must be responsible at all times.

Stay as we finish the interior. It's “rustic”ily awesome! Your stay helps the completion :) 

Camp ikigai Animal Sanctuary 501c3 is 72 Acre Agricultural Tourism and land conservation project. Perfectly situated within a 30-minute drive to the Sequoia Kings Canyon National Parks and 90 Minutes to Yosemite. Also within 30-minute drive are lakes and rivers for year round fishing and swimming. Winter Skiing at China Peak is 90 Minutes Away!

Our rustic and primitive off grid tiny cabins are from Mine Hill Tiny Homes that is also located here at the property. The tiny cabins are 120sqft (10x12ft). Upon completion, each cabin will have a different theme. This listing is called "The Birdhouse” Tiny Cabin"

Please note - Outhouse Restrooms and Showers are shared outdoor spaces. There is no running water or traditional flushing toilets. Please prepare yourself for this experience :)  

Your stay allows access to the entire 72 acres, communal areas, 12 miles of roads and trails, gold mine from 1902 and access into the 140 acres of BLM land (Bureau of Land Management - Federal Managed Public Land).

We will be as available as needed. Some guests wish little interaction, others like to hang out around the communal campfire, share a drink, meal and just chat. That’s up to you :)

We have many amazing places to explore near with a rich bold history. a 5 minute drive to Clingans Junction Cafe. There is 1 gas station (Valero) 5 minutes away and the Dollar General, Indian Trading Post Gas Station, Bear Mountain Pizza and Napa Auto Parts are 10 minutes away. About 15 minutes away is a terrific restaurant called Gena’s Restaurant. Say hi to Gena and Chris, they are pretty awesome!

PLEASE NOTE - This is a dusty (summer) and muddy (winter) 501c3 non profit working ranch with retired/rescued/hospice animals that freely roam. If you do not like mud, dust, bugs, nature, animals, primitive conditions, rustic off-grid etc, this will not be a desirable place for you. 

Please do not expect snow or green grass in Sumner. Please be mindful at all times of our limited power and water resources. If you do not understand what off-grid means, please ask or search the web. This is not a hotel or motel experience This is a glamping experience at a campground.
