Both my husband Ben, and I are natives to the Fingerlakes region. We are  nature lovers and enjoy , (Love) camping. When this property became available to us we couldn't help visualize our dream camp spot. We decided to make a go for it. The frontage of the property is a small mobile home park which truly reminded us of a quaint camp community we had just visited in Canada. After exploring the 90 acres of hardwood forest beyond the park we realized an eco friendly camp ground was exactly what the property needed. Ben sourced only local wood for the cabin and used all natural building materials. No plastic anywhere! our hope is that people who need a break from the hustle of daily life can visit Minglewwood and enjoy some serenity. Our sweet little cabin is about a quarter mile into the forest. You will have total privacy. The cabin sits beside a little creek which runs till late summer depending on rain.  There is 90 acres of beautiful forest to explore. The stunning Finger lakes are only a short drive as well as the impressive Gorges that surround the area. You will find no shortage of natural beauty when you visit Minglewood camp.Our sweet little cabin is about a quarter mile into the forest and will offer total privacy.

The wood stove made the cabin super cozy! A comfy selection of beds and an outdoor kitchen with warm water. The whole cabin runs on a solar panel and large battery. So no outlets to charge your phone! I enjoyed the owls hooting at night and the sounds of the creek to fall asleep to. Definitely recommend.

Perfect spot in the forest while only a short distance away from Ithaca. The wood burning stove was so cozy inside and the propane stove top was perfect for making food and tea. Thank you!

Autumn visit to the Finger Lakes
The cabin was so cozy and we had a wonderful time. Emma reached out before arrival and made sure I had all the info I needed, including a map of how to get to the cabin through the driveway in the woods. Everything that was written on the listing was provided, like dishes, utensils, dish soap, clean sheets and pillow cases, etc. We didn't need to use the fireplace inside because it wasn't too chilly but it would've probably been so cozy if we did! The cabin itself was clean and the view of the forest and stream (although mostly dry right now) was beautiful, especially in the morning. I would say the only thing to note really is that the photos on the listing seem to be from when the cabin was a bit newer and aren't completely accurate to how it looks now. It still looks great, just more worn in and used compared to the listing's photos. The door was also a little difficult to get open and closed. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and recommend staying here if you're making a trip to the Finger Lakes! We were only about 20 min from Ithaca and about 15 minutes to Watkins Glen State Park and a bunch of the Seneca Lake wineries. Beautiful area, especially in the fall. :)

Secluded and cozy
Our favorite place! This is our fourth time here and it’s something we look forward to every year. So secluded and peaceful and lots of trails for hiking. We always find cool stuff in the woods! Our dogs LOVE it here so much. Thank you Ben and Emma for opening up this perfect gem to us. We already cannot wait to return.
