A wonderful rustic, private, off-grid get-away, perfect for couples, families, and pups who enjoy camping (log cabin with wood furniture available, you may pitch your tent anywhere on the property - leave no trace). 

It is a quiet, rural, farming area. Once at the cabin there are only two to three houses within a half mile (through the woods), so you will have a private space all your own.

Onsite: water pump, outhouse, wood stove, campfire ring, wood, & propane grill.Exclusive access for nature hikes, streams, forest, pond, swimming, bird watching, star gazing, etc.

If you autobook, you are confirming your understanding of the following:
there is no electricity, running water, or std. bed/mattresses. You bring own air mattress, bedding, and gear you will need. All-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

Note for winter guests:

We do not plow the driveway in winter, you need to be ready to shovel an off-road parking spot, and transport gear to cabin (e.g. by sled, snowshoes)

Here's a brief list of the basics to bring:
Light source: Lantern propane or battery (there are flashlights on site, but the batteries may be low or gone).
Air mattress or cot and whatever bedding you need.
Paper products (cups, plates, utensils, toilet paper, etc.)
Matches/fire starter (there is wood and newspaper on-site, and a propane grill for cooking that has a self-starter)
Bug spray
Cooler and ice
Lawn chairs

There are a few tables, several chairs and benches. There are 2 picnic tables (one outside and one inside). The benches can be moved outside if you'd like, just move them back inside before you leave. The propane grill should also be moved outside if you plan to use it.

There is a hand axe in the cabin to shave kindling, and the wood is already split to be the length for the wood stove, as needed.

Gas: 5 miles awayIf you plan to grocery shop when you get to the area, the closest store is at East Hill Plaza in Ithaca, about 9 miles past where the cabin is (I can give you all that info if you like). There is lots to explore/see/do in the Ithaca area if you decide to come down off the hill one of the days. I'll have some brochures and things in the cabin, and can answer questions (aka where is the best ice cream, dinner, etc.).
