About Debbie Bartlett

Exeter has been a family gathering place and we have had numerous family holidays, get-to-gethers and two weddings here. The younger generation of our family spent their childhood exploring the woods and nature here. Betty & Richard always wanted Exeter Nature Cabins to be about keeping a natural area for animals and nature education.

Debbie Bartlett purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Debbie Bartlett chose Exeter

It's peaceful, beautiful, soul renewing place to stay. EVERYONE who stays here says they love it. There are activities for everyone. If your a homebody, then stay on the deck and enjoy the wildlife from there. There are hiking trails that range from leisurely to more challenging. We are just starting to build a place where folks can come and learn more about the woods and natural environment around them. We don't have those opportunites when we live in the city.

Perfect Cabin in the Woods Experience

  • 5 of 5

We came for a local family event and stayed at the Chalet Cabin.

It was very clean, well outfitted and the owner was very accommodating.

Her responses were very quick and welcoming.

The cabin was much more spacious than we expected.

The property was very well maintained and scenic.

Except for the long drive from Virginia we would love to stay there again.

Yes! Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Exeter Nature Cabins three times in the last 2 months. Twice in the Main Cabin and this time I the Chalet Cabin. Both cabins are beautiful, quaint, rustic and scenic. It is not uncommon to see deer and other wildlife going about their day.

Debbie and family are respectful, kind and make sure you have everything you need the moment you walk in the door.

We would definitely stay here again. This is perfect for large families and social stays.

Debbie, thank you so much for having us again. Your accommodations have been perfect during this trying time in our family. Much peace and respect to you.
