A mixture of early attic and cool re-purposed treasures, this quiet, quaint Cabin overlooks our 9 acre lake.  Skylights & starshine reconnect you to the natural world. Wonderful for relaxation, peaceful exploration, fishing, artists, musicians or writers retreat.

Our focus and purpose on this land is to provide stewardship and sanctuary for the Natural world to maintain it’s own balance with minimal interference from humans.  To remain wild and free.  We are a plant, wildlife and butterfly sanctuary.

We rent the Cabin to support and fund the maintenance and expansion of native and pollinating species of plants, expanding the area that we steward, providing habitat and refuge for animals, insects, birds and more.  We wish to share our Cabin with people that love and respect the Earth, who wish to contribute to a conservation project through their own presence and mindfulness.

This cabin has a glassed in porch overlooking the lake, complete with rocking chairs.  Loft, open living area and half bath.  Bathroom has a composting/camping toilet, and there is an outdoor shower (in a privacy tent).  Water containers with pumps provide fresh well water in the kitchen and the bathroom for drinking and washing. The cabin is also equipped with a small refrigerator, a toaster oven, electric kettle, a double burner cooktop and French press.  This cabin is cute and funky with lots of charm!

We have puzzles, games, cards etc for those that like to play and a large library of books in our main building that you can borrow during your stay.  Wi-Fi is also available in the main building, for checking email, getting directions etc. 

We are constantly upgrading and improving our cabin -- new artwork, bedding, general coziness and fun stuff!  

Please note, this is a cabin in the woods and there are wild creatures that live here. There is always a chance that one of these small beings can find their way into the cabin, if this is a problem for you please do not book the cabin.  We have other listings that may be better suited to your needs. Please contact us about them.  We do suggest that you put all food and drink away as leaving these items out can attract creatures to the building.

90 acre Holistic Retreat Center and Organic Farm (Garden of One).  Full bath and other amenities in main building, a short walk from the cabin.  The cabin is available year round, it has a rocket stove mass heater.  Please note: We provide wood for heating the cabin, but it must be chopped down to kindling size for use in the rocket stove. We have a special tool for this that we leave for our guests.  Be sure to bring whatever gear you need to be comfortable outside while using it.

Cabin can accommodate up to 5 people,  there’s a queen bed, beanbag bed in the loft and a single futon bed.  A cot can be set up in the living room area ($20 additional per nite/per extra person over 2)  Also, please consider your pet as another person and add $20 per nite for your fur baby!

We are working farm, and sometimes have animals that need short term special care.  So you may find a baby chicken, turkey, duck, pig or rabbit nestled in a box or tub inside the main building.  Most often you will be able to interact with them but please ask first!

We use all organic and natural cleaning products and methods in all of our rentals, private and public space.

Lovely swim-able private lake, forest & gardens.  Canoeing, fishing and hiking available on our property.

The Quaint Lakeside Cabin was perfect for my two kids and I. We had a wonderful time exploring the area (caverns, Zoom Flume, hiking), getting back to nature with nightly campfires, and slept well in the peace of the forest. Rachel and Brian were excellent hosts.

Our family loved camping on Rachel’s serene property. The cabin was calm and cozy and the views of the lake were a beautiful way to start and end the day. The directions were clear and our hosts were great communicators and always there to provide fresh water and tell us about the area. We highly recommend their beautiful property.

We had a lovely stay at the cabin! Brian and Rachel were wonderful hosts. They were very responsive to our needs and yet gave us plenty of privacy. The cabin is beautiful and just as described. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider coming back again.

I had the absolute best stay with Rachel and Brian! Not only is the property beautiful, the cabin comfortable and cozy, but they are truly the best hosts I've ever had. My car was kind of on its last legs when I arrived and Brian went above and beyond to get it working again, was super informative and helpful. I highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful property + gracious and accommodating hosts = wonderful family getaway! I brought 3 kids (11, 10, 5) for a Mom-cation and we all were delighted with our stay. The kids learned to steer a canoe on the gentle, hazard-free lake; we saw a bald eagle and a beaver right on the property; and we had a lot of blessed downtime playing games from the very well-stocked game cabinet. Our family time was helped tremendously by the lack of internet connectivity - a plus in my book for a few days.

We do camp regularly so are not fazed by things like outdoor showers or composting toilets or tub-washing dishes without running water. This was part of the fun for us! But, be aware that things like cooking and dishes do take more effort than at a different kind of vacation rental. The kitchen has a smaller selection of wonderful cookware however, including 2 sizes of crock pots, a toaster oven, and an electric 2-burner stove. Pots and kitchen utensils are appropriately sized for 2-4, so if you do come with 5 you may need to find some more forks and/or bring a bigger pot (e.g., for a large pot of pasta).

We didn't leave the property much, but did venture out for one day to see a cave with a 100-foot underground waterfall and an Iroquois museum. The upper Catskills are lovely and on another trip I'm sure we would have enjoyed the nearby hikes. This time we just needed to relax and unwind, and this was a wonderful place to do that.

It was fantastic! Brian and Rachel took great care of my pup and I. Brian and Rachel were mindful of social distancing. Everything in the cabin was thoroughly explained. I was impressed with how clean the cabin was. The rocket heater was really cool and efficient and a lot cleaner and easier than a regular fireplace but loads more charm than electric heating. Hiking in Huyke was gorgeous. Amazing views everywhere.

This beautiful place requires a little adjustment. Not exactly camping and not exactly a modern cabin but a bit of both. Wooden enough to hide any neighbors, with enough electric to charge your devices and do a little cooking but no running water (there is plenty of water provided regularly) the contrast to modern life was welcomed for us. We loved our stay.

Rachel and Brian have created such a wonderfully special place--and they are equally as wonderful. We loved the rustic little cottage.
