Troy & Laurie Danielson purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Troy & Laurie Danielson chose Chatfield
Heritage Hideaway, LLC was originally established in 2012 with our Amish built log cabin. We became interested in the Tiny House movement and wanted to provide guests the opportunity to experiment with this lifestyle. We purchased the Tiny House in 2015 and moved it to it's current site in May. While selecting furnishings we experimented with a variety of options to make the Tiny House efficient yet functional. We hope you enjoy the scenic beauty, solitude and sounds of nature during your stay.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our Tiny House is 100% off the grid utilizing a small solar system. While there is no running water, ten gallons of fresh water is supplied with each stay. The clean and modern outhouse is close but not too close to the Tiny House. A short hike beyond the cabin is a rock overlook for spectacular sunset views. The short 100 yard hike in, is facilitated by a wagon.

Memorial day weekend
Clean, quiet weekend. GPS won't locate property and the cell number given for owner didn't work but my overall stay was awesome. This was my second stay at the cabin and would definitely go back again.
The place was beautiful every thing provided secluded and the sunsets on the swing spectacular👍🏻
The hosts were gracious, everything you need. My wife was a little apprehensive because we were celebrating her 60th without running water and an outhouse. But the minimalist experience was nice very private good access to the outlying communities and bike trails on the Root River. Bring your own food and everything was provided very nice.
It was wonderful!
We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Very well planned space. I enjoyed my time there so much. Would love to come back again and again
Nice quiet cabin.
COLD! Wood stove lights well if you have the right kindling.
Little piece of heaven!
My husband and I and our 2 girls who are 9 and 5 years old spent 2 nights in the tinyhouse. It was very clean and organized when we arrived. Expectations and check-in information was very clearly communicated. A binder with specific instructions and suggestions was available in the house upon arrival
as well. Laurie and Troy were amazing to communicate with. We made a last minute reservation (within 24 hours) and they were very accommodating. The house is well equipped with everything you need except food. I agree with others, that slippers or warm socks are a good idea when you are visiting when it's cold. (Laurie mentioned this during our reservation too!) I would also suggest bringing your own reading lamp or lantern for a softer light at night. We loved the area and beautiful scenery! The rock overlook and swing was peaceful. We loved the overall location as well. Very easy to get to the city of Rochester and all of the small surrounding towns like Lanesboro and Harmony. We will be suggesting this location to our friends and family. We'd love to come back. Thank you for a great little getaway!
The perfect remote getaway
We wanted to getaway from the city with our kiddos and this was the perfect spot. Our little girls are huge fans of Laura Ingalls and it reminded them of what their home was like in her books. We were cozy and warm with the fireplace and enjoyed books by firelight. Great memories were made. And the hikes were great!
