Let It Snow

  • The cabin is insulated very well. We have found that setting the thermostat at 65 assures that the upstairs is comfortable and that the downstairs doesn’t get too warm.
  • If it is cold outside, you can close the shades to insulate the cabin even more. If you close the upstairs blinds before bed this will also help the cabin heat more evenly.
