About the property

Private Cabin, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, on 10 secluded wooded acres. Experience it!!

20 MINUTES FROM LETCHWORTH STATE PARK!!!

Note: January 1 - March 31, we recommend 4WD or AWD vehicles only. Depending on snow conditions, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to drive your vehicle closer than 200 ft to the cabin due to snow depths and the road plows filling in the driveway entrance (we don't plow the driveway due to significant damage in previous yrs).

Winter is a special time at the Cozy Cabin though! The trails are generally passable with hundreds of tracks (deer, fox, raccoon and others) crisscrossing the landscape. The Hemlock area when it’s covered with snow is about as quiet as you can get.

* Winter No Worry Guarantee: In the event of extreme winter weather that makes roads impassible, we will provide you with a full refund, including fees.

Driveway not plowed in winter. Park on the road and walk up the driveway 200' to the cabin.

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 Dalton

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, nature and non-human noises.

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

Cozy Cabin is the perfect spot for couples who want a completely secluded, romantic getaway where no one will find them, but it's also great for families who want to enjoy a woods experience with modern amenities! When guests are ready to come out of the forest, there is so much to see and do all within 15-20 minutes: Letchworth State Park, Stonybrook State Park, Swain Mountain Ski Resort, the Mount Morris Dam, and 7,700 acres of NYS Wildlife Management/wilderness Area to explore! Six Flags Darien Lake is 45 minutes away, and Niagara Falls is just over an hour and a half drive!

Very clean. Well appointed. AC on Cool works well (not auto). Open windows at nite were awesome.

  • 5 of 5

It’s like walking into a dream where there is no stress. We had a deer walk through the property one night and it was almost like we were visiting him. Did see a lot of chipmunks running through the woods. Loved the trails and spent time doing some meditation in the Essence Center. One nite had a big campfire with S’mores - regressed back to our Boy Scout days. Hope to return.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Robert and his family chose Cozy Cabin in the Woods to unplug from their busy lives down there in the BIG city! You can't get much more of a contrast than when you come out here. When you're letting the peace & quiet of the forest soak in, who cares what time it is! Come again any time Robert, and thank you for leaving the cabin as you found it!!! It's much appreciated!! Peg and Bob

Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Great style, modern cabin in the woods. Anything you could possible need was available for use Enjoyed the setting and trails with the privacy and solitude of forest living. Just sitting on the porch watching the wildlife was relaxing as is. Easy driving distance to Letchworth State Park for other activities. Pictures do not show recent updates which are nicely done.

Peaceful Serenity in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We just left Cozy Cabin where we rented for a couple of nights. It was the most relaxing vacation we have been on in 21 years of marriage. The cabin was amazing with everything we needed. Peg and Bob were so nice and helpful. They gave us a big list of restaurants which were only 10-15 minutes from the cabin!!! Relaxing in the cabin, listening to the birds on the porch, visiting Letchworth State Park, the Mt Morris Dan tour, and the Sierra Inn, was like a vacation from heaven. We even saw a turkey and two deer right on the cabin property! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for some quality time with family or a romantic get away without breaking the bank.

Great cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Each year my sons and I try to find a fun place to camp and hopefully find some great sites nearby to hike or see nature. This year we found this gem of a cabin in Upstate New York which would be perfect on our annual drive back from Ohio / Pennsylvania. The description was perfect and matches what you see, but you have to experience it for yourself to see how cozy it really is in person. We really enjoyed the cabin as well as the nearby Letchworth State Park - definitely not to be missed. Peg and Bob are excellent hosts. Highly recommended!

Robert

Owner's Response: It's always gratifying to see yet another family enjoy their time together at Cozy Cabin in the Woods. Robert and his sons took great care of our property, left the cabin in very clean condition, and we will gladly welcome them back for a return visit! It was a pleasure meeting them. Thank you again!! Peg and Bob

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there with a group of friends for a weekend over which we were running a trail marathon in the nearby Letchworth Park. The cabin came exactly as described: peaceful, cozy, charming and well equipped for a relaxing escape. The attention to each small detail was what made this stay even more enjoyable. I would heartily recommend it for anyone wanting a lovely base for enjoying the park, or just for getting away from it all.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Laura and her friends chose Cozy Cabin in the Woods, and we will gladly share it with them anytime. They were wonderful guests, and when they moved out, they left absolutely no trace that they had even been here... Thanks Laura and do come again!
