Haybale Hut sits on top the height of land just north of Lower Haybale Pond . With 6 plywood bunks and additional floor space, this spacious hut is perfect for families or friend groups to enjoy year round. This 4-season getaway is fully insulated, keeping guests cozy and comfortable no matter the season. Enjoy time in the hut or on the deck soaking in south westerly views of the nearby treetops.

NOTE: On the HVNC map, Haybale Hut has replaced the North Yurt, so its location is currently denoted as “North Yurt”.
