Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Dalton - Cabin Creek Getaway

100 Acre Private Forest Property Featuring A Secluded Creek-Side Cabin!

Just 15 min. from Letchworth Park, Cabin Creek Getaway features a secluded, rustic cabin right next to a cascading stream! With 100 acres of private forest, trails, and abundant wildlife, you can get away from it all, and be alone with just the people you enjoy spending time with!


The space is 100 Acres of private forest! Guests can bring a tent, RV, or... stay in our beautiful, rustic cabin!

The beautiful, knotty-pine cabin is off the grid, with options for rustic living or modern conveniences. Oil lamps give off a nostalgic, old-fashioned glow on the knotty pine walls, but solar power also provides convenient 12 volt electricity for lighting (and recharging your electronics!).

An old-time, natural heating wood stove turns the coldest of winter evenings comfortably cozy, but the LP gas furnace offers another convenient option.

Cabin Creek feels like stepping back in time with your favorite people, but with the comforts of an indoor composting toilet, hot showering, and 1/2 size refrigerator powered by LP gas!

Bath, body wash & shampoo, percolating coffee pot, fully equipped kitchen, firewood, and a small library of outdoor & self-sufficiency books provided.

We encourage and prefer our guests to bring your own bedding, but bedding is available at $15/bed, payable on arrival. Please let us know if you are requesting bedding.

Note: December 1 - March 31 is our Dry Cabin-Camp Shower Season. Due to our exposed plumbing, there is no running water available inside the cabin. Water is brought in for you, with dispensers provided in both the kitchen and bathroom. A camp shower is provided in the bathroom, and with water heated from the stove, hot showering is still available. Our composting toilet remains unaffected by winter weather.


During the winter season, we maintain the road leading to the cabin, so no matter how deep the snow gets, you can drive right in to the secluded site! Our snow removal is provided compliments of John Deere!

Our guests enjoy relaxing so many different ways here: Inside the the beautiful knotty-pine cabin, visiting out on the large covered deck, sitting in front of blazing camp fires with wood provided, exploring along the half mile of cascading creek & waterfalls, getting out on miles of hiking trails, and seeing the abundant wildlife - 100 acres all to yourself! Adventurers will enjoy going down the 100' climbing rope to view the hidden water falls... the only way to find them!


Upon arrival, guests will be greeted for an orientation to the cabin, the property, and attractions in the surrounding area, which include Letchworth State Park (The Grand Canyon of the East). Housekeeping service comes once a day at a mutually convenient time. Just a quarter mile away, we are always available to respond to the needs of guests. Only one guest party is allowed at the property at any time, so it's yours to enjoy exclusively!


The very best thing about the neighborhood is that there are no neighbors! The cabin is situated off a seasonal use road, right at the mouth of Cabin Creek ravine. Aside from the occasional vehicle traveling the road, you won't see or hear anyone who is not in your party!

We deliver a wonderful experience in a rugged area that is sparsely populated and seldom traveled.

We like to joke that the Cabin Creek night-life is dominated by the wildlife... but that's no joke! In addition to the ever-present squirrels, chip monks & racoon, it is very common to see deer and wild turkey in our forest. The yipping-howls of coyotes are commonly heard after dark while guests sit around the campfire, and seldom-seen bobcats can be heard calling in the night several times a year. Very rare pine martin have been spotted on the property, along with bald eagles & great horned owls. Bears do frequent our area, coming from the 7,700 acre wildlife management area across the valley. Believe us or not, during the 2015 deer season, an Eastern Timber Wolf was observed as it passed by 2 different tree stands, judging by its extreme size and near-black color (later one January night, long, low howls were heard along the base of the ridge. Definitely not coyotes!). So if you're looking for an experience in a wild area... this is as wild as it gets in the entire Northeast!


100 foot climbing rope descending to hidden water falls (On your own).

.22 caliber handgun & rifle instruction & target shooting by appointment.

Canoe rentals & river float trips by appointment.

Guided hikes/mountain biking to beaver ponds & hanging bog by appointment.

Hot Air Ballooning over Letchworth Park (Outside Vendor)

White Water Rafting in Letchworth Park (Outside Vendor)

Location! Location! The cabin is within an easy twenty minute drive to so many great attractions: Letchworth State Park (Grand Canyon of the East), Stony Brook State Park, Swain Mountain Ski Resort, The Mount Morris Dam, and 7,000 acres of State Wildlife Management Area. Wine country tours start within an easy 40 minute drive, and Niagara Falls is a little over an hour and a half away!


Cabin Creek is in a rural area. Guests will need their own vehicle to get from the cabin to state route 70, from which all area attractions are easily accessed.

About Terry Peck

We are a professional couple who enjoy many different outdoor activities: hunting, photography, hiking, camping, ATV riding, horse riding, and observing wildlife. We enjoy God's creation, and feel so blessed to be living in this beautiful area, and we enjoy sharing it with others.

Terry Peck purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Terry Peck chose New York

We purchased the property for its proximity to our home, excellent Deer & Wild Turkey Hunting, cascading stream, and the peacefulness of the deep woods. The land offers us the opportunity to enjoy everything we love to do outdoors, and staying in the cabin makes 'camping out' as enjoyable as it gets! We love it!

What makes this cabin unique

100 acres of forest that you don't have to share with anyone outside your party... need we say more? Cabin Creek Getaway really is a place nearby, that takes you far away! The peacefulness of the deep woods, the sound of the water going over the falls in the creek, the breeze blowing through the trees, and all the natural beauty... it has a way of soaking in, and melting away all the stress we accumulate from our busy lives, It works for us, and we know it will work for you too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Harry and his friends are very personable. If any person is the average of their friends, then these guys are far above the average. They took excellent care of our property and cabin, and did a marvelous job of cleaning before they left! When they were introduced to operating the wood stove and oil lamps, they paid attention, and quickly became adept. They are also young professionals who are very likable, and it's easy to see why they enjoy each others' company. We enjoyed getting to know them! We sincerely hope to see them return to Cabin Creek Getaway in the future!

Wow! What an amazing place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I couldn't say enough about this place to give the full effect. The cabin was extremely clean, comfortable, & had all the eccential needs to cook. The fridge was great to have. David was awesome. Explained in detail everything about the place, stores and restaurants around us and what's the best places to visit. The property is amazing. You have to go down the 100 ft rope. Awesome!! Will definitely be back. We had a group of 12 and everyone had a great time. We had one night of very hard rain, thunderstorm and still had great time. Not one complaint...

Owner's Response: Sarah and her husband brought their whole crew to Cabin Creek, and they were ready to make the most of everything the property has to offer! They brought a 4-wheeler to ride on the trails, and a gun to practice our fun Shooting Skills Drill on the target range! Sounds like they found the climbing rope to descend to our hidden water falls too, and had a blast! So glad the heavy rain storm on their last night didn't dampen their spirits... it was a real gully washer, but we built our very large covered deck for times like that, so Sarah's group could still enjoy the outdoors under cover! We're so glad you came Sarah! You were a lot of fun, took good care of our property, and we will welcome your return whenever you can come again! David & Terry

Cozy, basic, cabin. Strategically located between Letchworth and Stoney Brook State Parks.

  • 4 of 5

A cozy cabin, providing a great escape from the rush of modern life without sacrificing safety or comfort. The owners are very warm, friendly and inviting.

Owner's Response: We're glad Richard brought his family to Cabin Creek, 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 West and enjoy the majestic views and three thundering waterfalls at the Grand Canyon of the East, Letchworth State Park. Then on your next day here, you can drive 20 minutes East to Stony Brook State Park where you can hike up through the very bottom of the creek bed and swim in waist deep water right at the foot of a 150' waterfall! One day you're seeing majestic views you'll never forget, and the next day you can get in and play! 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 away! Cabin Creek feels like you're camping out in the middle of nowhere, but is strategically located right in the middle of everything you'll want to see! Come again soon Richard! David & Terry

Off the Grid with all the convenience of home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cabin Creek! David and Terry were great hosts and you could tell they take really good care of the cabin. We all fit very comfortably in the cabin (5 adults, 1 child) and there was a great spot to pitch a tent if you had additional people with you. My favorite was the covered porch. We unfortunately had some (much needed) rain our first night there but it didn't bother us at all! We stayed on the porch and enjoyed our time all the same. The creek was close enough that I felt comfortable letting my 8 year old go exploring on his own and he loved it! (Parents: my son was unplugged for 3 days and did not complain about it once! So awesome!) There was great hiking on the property and a secret waterfall that was really great. It wasn't flowing while we were there because of the drought but I can imagine it's beauty if it had been flowing! We took a 20 minute drive to the incredible Letchworth State Park and enjoyed swimming and hiking there. The waterfalls are a must see at Letchworth!

One thing to note is there is an active railroad near the property that had approximately 4-6 trains go through per day. You can't see it from the cabin but you can hear it. It never lasted long and it didn't bother us, in fact we thought it was pretty cool! But if that's not your thing, maybe it might bother you? It was a great time at Cabin Creek, we highly recommend staying there!

Owner's Response: It's always gratifying to see yet another family enjoy their time together at Cabin Creek. Sarah can thank Terry for the large, spacious, covered deck at the cabin. Terry's idea was that even when its raining, we all still want to be outside enjoying the outdoors & pitter-patter of the rain on the leaves, and the great covered deck allows you to just that! When the earth is receiving its watering from the heavens above, you can still play games at the picnic table, visit on the porch swing, and grill your favorite entree! After the rain stops, there is 100 acres of forest trails, cascading creek, and water falls to explore! Hopefully when Sarah returns, our drought will be over, and the creek will be flowing beautifully once again!

Pleasant time away from home

  • 3 of 5

Cabin Creek Getaway is a very well built cabin - very clean and much larger than I anticipated. Our family (Mom, Dad, and two girls aged 7 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay. The beds were super comfortable and the over-sized covered deck with a gigantic picnic table was a huge plus. Dave and Terry are wonderful hosts. The cabin falls short of a 5-star review due to some omissions in the property description. The cabin description states that the cabin is situated on a 100 acres, which led me to romanticize a rustic cabin tucked deep in the woods away from all civilization. In reality, the cabin is at the very edge of the shared 100 acre plot right next to a seasonal road which has relatively heavy pick-up truck and ATV traffic flying down hill. That made this Mom a bit nervous for the kids to be outdoors. The creek was all dried up (totally not the owners' fault!). Also, no where does the description mention that there is a freight train less than a stone's throw away the runs from 5am to way past 11pm blaring its whistle - even on Saturday, Sunday, and the 4th of July. For a get-away vacation, this is a rather unwelcome wake-up call. Finally, just as a fair warning to future renters, the composting toilets are actually 5-gallon buckets, not the traditional composting outhouse style you may imagine. Our family has camped for nearly 20 years - carry in tenting to yurts to rustic cabins, and although the stay was very enjoyable, I would question the price for the value. Next time I'd consider staying in Stony Brook park in a cabin with a shared shower that has consistent water temperature for much less than half the price. However, this was a wonderful vacation. Final thought - if you enjoy cooking, bring your own knives.

Owner's Response: Wow! We've always managed to get good matches between our guests and the experience we offer here at Cabin Creek, but apparently this wasn't an entirely good match for Joanna! So, let's clarify some things to establish whether we are a good match for YOU! This cabin is back in the trees 100 feet off a seldom-used, seasonal use road. Joanna visited over the 4th of July Holiday weekend, when most people in the USA were off from work, enjoying the outdoors; so there were other people out enjoying this beautiful area too! But children are always safe here at Cabin Creek, and the only traffic on 100 acres of forest is our wildlife! Lots of trails will take you and your children deep into our safe, private forest! We are definitely experiencing a severe drought here in WNY, so Cabin Creek is down to a slow trickle right now, but cascades beautifully at most other times! We do have a set of RR tracks in the valley between 1/4 and a 1/2 mile from this cabin, and the web site depicts their location in a satellite view/map towards the bottom of the property listing (Check it out!). Many guests have actually said how pretty the train whistle sounds echoing in the valley below. The receptacles in our all-natural indoor composting toilets really are 5 gallon buckets, located inside a cabinet, under regular toilet seats. Joanna obviously didn't experience any distasteful odors, or she would have commented on it... that's because our saw dust medium works so effectively! We can't imagine wanting to use a stinky outhouse where you have to see & smell other people's business, and our wonderful composting toilet ensures you won't have to either! Someone moved our sharp knives to the utensil drawer - Found 'em! Joanna suggests staying at Stony Brook State Park, but it's crowded, you'll be staying in cabins located with other parties camping just 30 feet away on either side of you, and you'll share a bath house & public toilets with strangers. (We recommend Stony Brook for nice day trips). But if you're looking for a great outdoor experience in a clean, comfortable cabin, on a 100 acre totally private forest, with no other people around to interfere with your enjoyment, then Cabin Creek might be a good match for you! As for value, you decide. But if you have preferred dates, then book soon, because our availability always fills up very quickly. Hundreds of other guests already have, and they enjoyed a 5 STAR EXPERIENCE! Thanks for the feedback Joanna!

Great cabin, great host, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Went to Cabin Creek for a low key weekend getaway and was not disappointed. The cabin was clean, comfy, and more than big enough for the four of us. Dave, the host, was great and keeps the place in tip top shape.

I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mark! We do take pride in providing the cleanest cabin accommodations that we can for our guests, and to hear you describe our property as being in "Tip Top Shape" makes us feel very appreciated. Sometimes our guests request an early check-in, but what they don't realize is that it takes time to clean all the way through in between guest parties. By the way Mark, THANK YOU for leaving the property in such great shape! Do come again soon! David & Terry

Perfect "Off the Grid" Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family found exactly what we were looking for with this vacation. Cabin creek is in a peaceful nature setting which allowed us to rest, relax and reconnect. The very clean cabin was perfectly nestled within the woods with access to beautiful hiking trails and waterfalls right on the property. David and Terry were phenomenal hosts, always available, very friendly, good-natured people. David and Terry went out of their way to make it a memorable trip for our boys. Our family had a wonderful experience that will not soon be forgotten.

As far as activities away from cabin creek, our family was able to enjoy trips to Niagara Falls (1.5 hour drive), Letchworth State Park (15 mins), Stony Brook State Park (10 mins). We would also recommend taking a trip into Canaseraga (10 mins) to the local general store Mastin's Food Market to enjoy an ice cream treat and good conversation with the local folks.

Owner's Response: Helen, Dominick, and their 4 sons were a treat to host right from the very start! The boys were very interested in seeing our wildlife, and looking for the old Indian arrowheads that can still be found here. They sure got a kick out of bottle feeding a calf, and collecting eggs from the chicken coop for their breakfast the next morning! One of the younger boys got one over on his brothers though, when he hitched a ride back up to the cabin with Dave on our 4-wheeler! Helen & Dominick have a family they can be very proud of, and we hope their boys grow to appreciate how blessed they are to have such kind, loving, & devoted parents. With a foundation like that, they will be 4 young men who are well-equipped to thrive in this world! We hope this family comes to visit Cabin Creek again in the future! David & Terry
