About The Owner

Bob and I (Peg) are a clean, neat, professional, energetic, fun loving couple who enjoy hiking high peaks, traveling and meeting new friends. We do not watch TV on a regular basis. We prefer pursing our passions - which include all sorts of travel, adventure and exploring new areas. We benefit from sitting on our deck with a drink in the Summer; or sitting in front of the inside fireplace in the Winter.

Bob owns his own business, The Opportunity Group. He's an Organizational Coach, where he transforms Managers into Leaders. He also writes romance/mystery novels [samples at the townhouse]. Peg is in charge of Stakeholder Services at the Opportunity Group, and volunteers at the local hospice.

For readers, you may find it interesting to note that much of Bob's Fantasy/Romance novel; JOURNEY, The Love Story of the Century, Part II was written in the cabin. Pictures of the trail from the cabin also appear in Part II. When you sit by the campfire, you will be sharing the same view that inspired some pretty interesting stories. The books may be found on Amazon. To find the books, Google 'Catlan Samuels Journey' (that is Bob's pen name). Part III of the trilogy is under way.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose New York

We very much enjoy the woods and getting off the grid as much as our busy schedules will allow.

When we are not there, we love to share the cabin with guests, who have a passion for peacefulness, birds, woods and nature.

Even though you are 20 minutes away from most anything, yet you feel like you are in the middle of no where.

Inside the cabin, being surrounded by knotty pine, is almost like camping outside with the luxury of a hot shower at your fingertips.

The easy forest trails allow for a casual back to nature experience, or for the more experienced hiker, the 5 mile hike around the block might suit your needs.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a place for ultimate privacy, whether you are a group of family members or friends, or a couple seeking a romantic get away. Most of the sounds you hear are non-human.

Our group of seniors had a very relaxing and quiet time at Peg and Bob's cabin each evening.

The property is well kept and we appreciated the attention to detail and communication with the owners.

Warm, welcoming, wonderful gem in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Warm, welcoming, wonderful gem in the woods! So many great things to say about our stay at Peg and Bob's Cozy Cabin in the Woods! Thoughtfully decorated, well-stocked, well-maintained and very clean home shared by thoughtful and considerate owners. Great communication with the owners who provided so much helpful information and suggestions about our stay on the property, as well as exploring the surrounding areas of Dalton, Birdsall, Letchworth, Nunda, Angelica … (plan to spend a few hours driving/hiking through picturesque Letchworth State Park, about a 20 min drive from the cabin) The marked walking trails in the woods on the Cozy Cabin property provides an opportunity to reconnect with nature, imagination and a sense of inner peace. The large fire pit and wood we pre-ordered at a reasonable fee from the friendly neighbour down the road provided us with toasty warmth under starry skies and falling autumn leaves. Just a couple of hours after putting out that nights fire, we experienced a surprise snowfall that lasted until morning! Thanks to Peg and Bob for sharing your home with everything we needed to feel comfortable and welcomed at your Cozy Cabin in the Woods!

Owner's Response: It's always gratifying to see yet another couple enjoy their time at Cozy Cabin in the Woods. We are so glad they chose our cabin, and we will gladly share it with Deb anytime. They were wonderful guests, and when they moved out, they left absolutely no trace that they had even been here... Thanks Deb, and do come again!

Cozy Cabin Stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful! It was so much more than we expected. The interior was neat and clean, and very nicely decorated. Peg & Bob were wonderful, accommodating hosts. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. The local eateries-The Birdsall Inn & the Sierra Inn were both very good places to eat. The exterior of the property was also really neat. There were trails surrounding the property and the owners left maps of where to go, which was really nice. We would definitely love to come back!

Owner's Response: We're glad Brenda & David stayed at our Cozy Cabin in the Woods, and we bet they were too! They discovered something that so many other families have also enjoyed about our beautiful property... You can drive 15 minutes to the North and enjoy the majestic views and three thundering waterfalls at the Grand Canyon of the East, Letchworth State Park. Then, you can drive 20 minutes South to the little historic town of Angelica. Many of our guests also venture out to the Finger Lakes Wine Country Trail starting at Canandaigua Lake just 40 minutes away in Naples, while others spend a day at Niagara Falls just 1:45 away! Cabin in the Woods feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, but is strategically located right in the middle of everything you'll want to see! They took great care of our property, left the cabin in very clean condition, and we will gladly welcome them back for a return visit! Come again soon Brenda & David!

Off the Grid

  • 5 of 5

We had a very wonderful eventful stay at Peg & Bob's cabin. It was perfect from the moment we walked in the door and smelled the knotty pine walls and ceiling. The whole cabin, inside and out was extremely clean and beautifully decorated with interesting items. Loved the Wood Spirit. We brought our slippers to adhere to the owner's request of no shoes allowed inside the cabin. Being there, now we understand why.....very clean.

We found out that the framed bear track hanging in the bathroom was actually taken on the trail behind the cabin. Not to worry because these bears are afraid of people.

At night we had a camp fire and the night was so clear we would see a million stars. We took a walk out to the road at 10PM, and could hear nothing. It's such a peaceful feeling!

The kitchen was well equipped for cooking our special meal. We especially loved the dinner plates with the pine cones on them.

We never turned the tv on, and it felt great to have quiet time to enjoy each other's company. We will be back next Summer to explore the surrounding area. Thank you Peg & Bob.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister, aunt, grandma, and I stayed here for three nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cabin was very clean and cozy and contained everything we needed, from forgotten toiletries to cooking utensils, magazines to flip through, movies and games. There was plenty of room for all of us.

We also brought quilting projects and the kitchen island made a perfect crafting station. With five cooks in the kitchen, all the counter space was good too! It was much better stocked than other rentals I've visited. We weren't lacking any dishes, pots, baking dishes, etc., and it was all in good, clean condition. Kudos for recycling!

We walked through the trails around the cabin (fun!) and visited the spiritual center. We made a huge fire in the fire circle and were glad to have the cozy coasters as well as the tables out there for our food and cooking supplies.

Our trip was mid-October and the fall foliage was spectacular. We went to Letchworth State Park and came back to do more walking down the dirt road. We didn't make it around the full 5-mile block. ;-) The weather was perfect so we kept the heat low inside the cabin and even turned on the ceiling fan to circulate air in the loft. My aunt and grandma shared the bedroom and my mom, sis, and I took the loft. We were all very comfortable and again, had plenty of room to unpack and unwind all weekend.

All in all, this cabin received five stars from all five in our party. What a great place to spend time with family.
