Our Story

Once upon a time, owner Angelo Spinazzola, would sit in the forest and dream about building a place for guests to stay and experience the great outdoors, while enjoying the comforts of home. He’d imagine a small quaint village where folks would relax in tranquility and connect with the nature that surrounds them. After much imagination of what the space would become, his dream became a reality. In 2015, Angelo pulled out his chainsaw and embarked on the journey to create what is now known as the River Nest Wilderness Cabins.
