We loved glamping at Livingston manor. It was too cold for camping so our family of four slept in the cabin, which even if it’s small, it kept us warm and cozy for the night.
The views of the site are beautiful. We decided not to hike (cold and rainy),, so instead, we spent some time in the town. Their organic grocery store and kitchen has amazing plant based food selection, and the hot chocolate is a must try. Great experience! Thank you Sam and Fred.

We came in on a snowy day in mid-November and this little gem of a cabin was perfect. It was toasty warm and offered beautiful views of the snowy fields under the moonlight. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for an easy, private, quiet retreat.

A wonderful solo getaway! The cabin truly is cozy and womb like. Came late Oct and was not cold at all because the wood burning stove is so effective. Thank you!

I spent about a day and a half in the cabin, it may not be for everyone but it was definitely much needed for me. I found the space very warm and inviting especially in the early morning. Coming from near JFK the sounds of nature and the leaves rustling in the wind were very welcome. They made sure I had whatever I needed and getting to spend time there allowed for much simpler living and headspace. The area itself was also gorgeous especially given the fall colors coming in, will defintely keep them in mind as an inexpensive getaway option or even for volunteering opportunties in the future! Thank you guys!
