Charming Log Cabin on Private Pond Nestled in Woods.

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

My charming log cabin sits on 100 acres of private land which adjoins 2200 of New York State Forest. It overlooks a small pond which is stocked with bass. You are welcome to catch a few and cook them fresh on the Weber gas grill. The front porch is comfortable with beautiful views of the pond, hills and the valley below.

It is a cozy cabin with a sleeping loft and comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a shower bath. The loft has a double bed and the first floor has a double futon.

Bring your bicycles in the summer or your cross country skis or snowshoes in the winter or your hiking boots year round, as the stare forest is full of groomed trails. Or bring your books and just relax and enjoy your surroundings.

We are only 12 minutes from Ellicottville, New York which is a quaint little ski and resort town. You can ski in the winter or golf in the summer. There are world class restaurants for fine dining and wonderful shopping.

It is the perfect place for solitude or a romantic getaway. I hope you will come and enjoy this special place on Golden Hill!!

Quiet and Convenient.

The cabin is close to roads, but you still felt like you were in an isolated area.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly what you'd call a getaway. Bette was a wonderful host who met us upon arrival and let us know she was there if we needed anything. If you're looking to disconnect, enjoy nature, simply kick back and relax... this is the place! We'd definitely stay again if we have a chance to return to the area.

Fantastic place to stay. Amazing view. Close to ellicotville. Just an all around winner. I would strongly suggest staying here. We may make this a yearly get away. Fun for everyone. Bring your dogs as they have plenty there to explore!

Lovely & private get-away

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin for its cozy appeal, but also because of the privacy the surrounding wooded property offers. The cabin backs to Golden Hills State Park, and the front porch overlooks a beautiful pond with some mountain views in the distance. Although the weather was not great (some rain, cold, snow) we did enjoy walking around the pond and even lit a fire in the fire pit. The cabin is well insulated; the heater worked great and could be adjusted easily. We had everything available that we needed in the kitchen. When the sun appeared the nearby Alleghany State Park Red House area was great for a paved trail 5 mile walk. And we headed to Ellicottville to do a wine tasting at the Winery of Ellicotville, ate at the Ellicotville Brewing Company (fabulous beer & food), bought some delicious chocolate at Watson's, and had lunch at The Gin Mill. I would recommend this cabin for a couples get-away where you can do as much or as little as your heart desires. We were comfortable and cozy in the cold weather and would love to come back and enjoy in the summer. Thank you Bette for a wonderful stay. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Everything was as described! Nice and relaxing.

Bette was very friendly. We enjoyed reading, cooking, hiking, and relaxing with Hazel our dog. The only recommendation would be a pair of wine glasses. We shared the 1 that was already there.Thank you

Owner's Response: Oh my sorry about the wine glasses. What a slip up on my part. AND especially funny as that is what my business is, Hand Painted Wine Glasses/Glassware. My barn warehouse has hundreds of wine glasses. Yikes and thanks for letting me know and I shall take a bunch up to the cabin so my guests will not have to share a glass!!!!
