If you want a retreat where you can sleep in, slow down and savor nature's beauty, the Blue Door Cabin, tucked in surprisingly hilly oak and hickory woods, with a beautiful view of the pond, is your destination. Within two hours from Kansas City, Tulsa, Joplin or Wichita, and only 4 miles from Chanute Kansas, this preserved and revived cabin offers an easy getaway for city dwellers in need of a very affordable anniversary weekend, study or solitude retreat, or family hiking and fishing trip.

The space
In the 30's the 27 acre property had several natural gas well and service roads through the hilly woods. The trails remain and are absolutely perfect for hiking and wild animal sightings. Need some exercise while you are enjoying your retreat? We got it. Bring your hiking shoes. The gate at the entry is essentially the SE corner of the 40 acre square that will be available for you to explore.

Two fishing poles, a dock and a couple of light-weight stools are available for all guests. Catch and release and enjoy the serenity.

A fire pit with zero gravity chairs is nestled next to the pond, and near the cabin for your s'mores and story-telling campfire adventure. We provide a complimentary start of firewood (5-6 logs) for every reservation. Need more? Available on site for $5 a bundle of 5 logs.

Interested in grilling? We have a park-style charcoal grill just off the porch available for use. Bring your charcoal and lighter fluid and get grilling!

Where you’ll be

Chanute, Kansas, United States

The Blue Door Cabin is tucked out of sight and nearly out of hearing behind a spacious and safe country family neighborhood of about 15 homes. The area is unusually hilly and wooded because of our proximity to the Neosho River. While people are within a mile of the Blue Door Cabin, it's almost a guarantee that you won't see another soul and will feel like you are really off the grid.

Wife to one of the hardest working dudes around, mother to my 3 favorite people and an active and outdoor enthusiast, we have made Chanute our home for 7 years. If I'm not teaching group fitness classes, coaching swim team, making something or managing the Blue Door Cabin, you might find me tinkering with the next creative project. We enjoy sharing our unique outdoor space with friends and guests and have made many family memories at the Blue Door Cabin property. We are committed to loving people well and finding ways to make our community better, kinder, more unified.
