This stone cabin has a queen bed, two twin beds  and a double futon couch that can be pulled out for extra sleeping space. The beds are made and towels are provided.

The large deck is perfect for getting a good dose of the outdoors, star gazing and some quality R&R. On the deck is a propane grill, umbrella, table and chairs. This cabin has a stove, basic cooking supplies, tin foil and a rubbermaid tub for washing dishes. Drinking water is provided and there is running water in the nearby composting bathroom for washing dishes. The kitchen is equipped with a french press for coffee (bring pre-ground!), a teapot, mugs, drinking water, utensils, a small pot, skillet, salt/pepper and oil. There is currently no electricity in this cabin. We will provide battery powered lighting.

 PLEASE NOTE

-We are a drug and alcohol free property! -The bathroom is not located in the cabin. The bathroom is a few steps away in our state-of-the-art composting toilet building.  The showers are a few minute walk away on a path through the woods. 

-There is a large sunken bonfire pit located about 100 feet from the cabin. 

Once you book we ask that you keep us updated on your arrival time so that we can be sure to be ready and waiting for you! We ask that all guests arrive before dark.  Guests arriving after 10pm will be required to pay an additional $20 late check in fee in cash upon arrival. We apologize but we must enforce this even if you are late due to circumstances out of you control. 

It’s simple living at its best. We're just over one hour from NYC but local folks love us too. We are an easy, inexpensive "staycation" and many use us frequently as their guest "bedroom" when out of town family or friends come. We offer a unique setting for your summer get-a-way or family reunion.

There is a communal Rustic Kitchen on the top of the mountain ideally situated between the Pagoda cabin, Mtn. Laurel cabin and Summit cabin. The kitchen has cookware, plates, french press, utensils, a stove, grill, coolers with ice, olive oil, salt/pepper, drinking water and a sink with running water (not potable)! Lighting is limited and we always encourage people to bring their own additional lighting.

There is also a fully equipped communal kitchen located in the Stone Barn at the base of the mountain which guests are welcome to use. We do not provide breakfast at this time.

There are three large designated fire pits on the property. Some cabins also have their own fire pits which is noted in their individual descriptions. Fires are not allowed to be made in non-designated places!  Please Note per Connecticut state law - firewood cannot be brought in from out of the state. 

Upon arrival we will provide you with a map and your own cooler with ice. We allow our guests to drive their belongings up to their cabin at check in and upon check out but cars must be parked below in designated parking areas. Please remember that during your stay you will be traveling on foot! Most of the cabins are a 10-25 minute walk through the woods, depending on your speed. The River Houseboat and Little House are at the base of the mountain next to the stone barn and parking area so very little walking is required. 

We restock ice and other goods daily and thus try to make ourselves as available and accommodating to changing needs as possible - we have some individuals living on the property who can be available in case of emergency.

Important Things to Note:

-Verizon wireless is the only network to have service throughout the property. Nearly all other providers have service on the top of the mountain where the majority of our cabins are located. -Dogs are not allowed to stay in any of our cabins.-Please be advised that we are not solely a Bed and Breakfast; while we aim to accommodate you as best as possible, there are sometimes other events going on that may affect your stay. We recommend you check our calendar of events prior to booking. Sometimes our guests enjoy participating!-There is a shower inside the stone barn, as well as two outdoor showers located near the Rustic Kitchen area at the top of the mountain.- An outhouse that is cleaned weekly is located near the Rustic kitchen, Mtn. Laurel cabin, Summit cabin and Pagoda cabin and a two room state of the art composting toilet is shared between the Solar cabin and Log cabin - both a one minute walk away- We have a wilderness camp that runs Monday - Friday from 9am - 3pm during the summer. Campers and staff respect the privacy of the cabins but you might see some groups of children building forts or playing games throughout the forest - Please be aware that depending on rain fall the property is at risk of drought in the late summer. This can sometimes cause the pond levels to drop making it less scenic for some.- None of the cabins except the River House Boat and Little House have electric- fans are provided in these cabins- There is a Stop and Shop grocery store located 2.5 miles from the farm- If you are arriving via metro north you want to get off at Bridgeport and from there you can get a  driving service for the 30-minute ride to the farm (i.e. Uber, Lyft etc.).- We do have wi-fi in the main stone barn that reaches the Little House and the River houseboat.- There are two cats that live on the property in our near the stone barn.
