About the property

Hidden Cabin on 100 Acre Forest Property 15 minutes from Letchworth Park

This 100 Acre Forest Property is just 15 minutes from Letchworth State Park, and features a very secluded, rustic cabin hidden deep in the woods. You can disappear here! No one will find you until you're ready to come out!


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

The off grid cabin is lit by old fashioned oil lamps for a soft, romantic glow, but also has convenient 12V solar powered lights. The LP gas fireplace is perfect for relaxing in the evening, getting cozy on the couch, or enjoying the view from the comfortable double bed! The beauty of the forest streams in with the sunlight through the large bank of windows! Morning coffee & evening toddies are accompanied by the sound of birds singing in the woods, and everything tastes even better on the large covered deck, which is also perfect for grilling as the sun goes down! Even during a passing summer shower, the soft patter of raindrops on the tin roof is so peaceful! We love coming here to be alone, and we know you will too!

LP gas powers the hot water, a cook stove, and 1/2 size refrigerator. The bathroom is complete with a natural composting toilet and hot shower. Bath, body wash & shampoo, percolating coffee pot, fully equipped kitchen, and a small library of outdoor & self-sufficiency books are provided. We have an outdoor fire ring w/firewood available for purchase for your outdoor camp fires. You can also get your own firewood from dead & down tops nearby.

Note: December 1 - April 10 is our Winter Wilderness Drop Camp Season. Depending on snow conditions, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to drive your vehicle closer than 1/2 mile to the cabin site due to snow depths & terrain. If the snow is too deep, we can take your luggage & supplies in and out for you with our machines, so you don't have to pack everything in!. The breathtaking scenery of the winter snow on the high elevation hemlocks surrounding the cabin make the inconvenience of reaching this remote location well worth it! Come and discover just how much fun it is being snowed in with the one you love! There's no place like it in the entire Northeast!

Note: During our Winter Wilderness Drop Camp Season (December 1 - April 10), the cabin is dry, meaning that there is no running water in the cabin. Water is hauled in for you, with dispensers placed in the kitchen & bathroom. A 12-volt powered camp shower is provided in the bathroom, and water is heated on the stove. Our composting toilet is unaffected by winter weather.

Guests need to bring their own bedding.

(Note: 12V system will not power appliances such as hair dryers, TV's, or electric coffee makers).


Guests can drive in/drive out to enjoy the hidden cabin, large covered deck, outside camp fires with wood provided, cascading creek & waterfalls, hiking trails, and abundant wildlife. Adventurers will enjoy going down the 100' climbing rope to view the hidden water falls... the only way to find them! The Hide-Away itself is situated on 20 acres of high elevation plateau along the North rim of the Cabin Creek ravine. Relax & enjoy it all to yourself!


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 half 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, at high elevation on top of a ridge. Aside from the occasional vehicle traveling the road, you won't have contact with anyone who is not in your party! We deliver a wonderful experience in a rugged area that is sparsely populated and seldom traveled. We have two ways to access the property, but you will travel on a gravel road either way.

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)

Location! Location! The cabin is within an easy twenty minute drive to so many 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

My husband and I are professionals who both love the great outdoors! We have come to love everything that Cabin Creek has to offer with its beautiful forest, cascading stream, 3 waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and rugged terrain. Whether we're hiking, riding our horses, or 4 wheeling on the trails, we absolutely love it here! As much as we enjoy the beauty of God's creation that He blessed us with, we didn't feel right about keeping it all to ourselves. So, we invite you to come and enjoy it with us!

Terry Peck purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Terry Peck chose Dalton

It's so close to home, and there really is no place quite like it! Our "Hide-Away" is so secluded amongst the hemlock trees, and it's nice being there all alone together. The deep woods are so peaceful, the sound of the stream cascading over the rocks is relaxing, and the waterfalls are simply beautiful! Then, as we go hiking, there's always the excitement of seeing deer, wild turkey, bald eagles, owls, pine martin, raccoons, and those ever-present squirrels! At night, we can hear the calls of coyotes, and even a bobcat once in a while!

What makes this cabin unique

Cabin Creek Hide-Away provides you with PEACE, PRIVACY and FREEDOM... 3 things that have to be enjoyed together, and are seldom found anywhere but the deep forest! Out here, our night-life is dominated by the wildlife!

Very beautiful off-grid cabin, with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and private area! Owners are spectacular and go out of their way to be sure you have everything you need! We stayed in October and the cabin was never cold. It was super cozy and had everything you needed to be comfortable, even having our 6 month old son with us. I would recommend 100 times over! Very close to Letchworth State Park and Stoney Brook Park in which are absolutely breathtaking! Cant wait to go back again!

Owner's Response: We do try to think of everything our guests will need to enjoy their stay at the cabin, so we're glad we got it right for Jessica's time with us. When you get all settled in that far back in the forest, the last thing you want to do is have to run into town for something. Sounds like Jessica and her growing family really enjoyed our private forest, as well as our nearby natural attractions at Stonybrook Park and Letchworth Park, the Grand Canyon of the East! We enjoyed meeting you Jessica, and we will look forward to the next time you want to come stay with us! David & Terry

Peaceful, Quiet, Relaxing Awesome Get-away

  • 5 of 5

David and Terry,

Thank you so much. Your property is exactly as featured. The cabin is amazing, the hardwork and effort you put into it definitely shows.

If you need a place to leave your troubles behind, this is it!

Thank you for being so helpful and caring about making our stay a great one.

We cannot wait to come back in the summer.

Owner's Response: When we met Yonatan and his wife, they said they wanted to leave everything about life in the city behind them... Mission accomplished! The remote location of the cabin up on the North rim of Cabin Creek ravine puts you way back in the forest with nothing around you but the trees and wild critters! It really is a different world up there, and it really does take you "far away". Next time you're ready to escape, you'll be welcome here Yonatan! David & Terry

Owner's Response: Whenever we go up to prepare the cabin for our guests, we can't help but enjoy the peacefulness of being alone there, and being so far back in the forest. We always find ourselves sitting down to just soak it all in... So glad you found that blessing too Dwight! David & Terry

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in our peaceful, private forest Cindi! It certainly was a BEAUTIFUL October here at Cabin Creek! Can't wait for wonderful, white snow to blanket the hemlock trees around the cabin as the season changes! David & Terry

We had a great stay. David and Terry were wonderful.

We visited Letchworth state park during our stay and it was wonderful. It's just 15 min away from the cabin. It was lovely with the fall colors around the cabin.

Owner's Response: It's just a quick 15 minute drive to join so many other people who are enjoying the Grand Canyon of the East at Letchworth State Park (#1 State Park in the U.S.A.), But then, just as quickly, you can return to enjoy the solitude & seclusion of our 100 acre private forest with just the people you WANT to be with! Perfect! David & Terry

Owner's Response: We're glad Kelly found us for her special time away! She made it a 3-day weekend, which is really the best way to go for our guests visiting the area. People often tell us there is so much to see & do here, that 2 days just isn't enough time! Letchworth, Stony Brook, and the Mount Morris Dam are just 15-20 minutes, and you can also visit Niagara Falls and Watkins Glen a little more than an hour and a half away. But if you spend all your time touring & sight seeing, then there isn't time to enjoy the cabin-life, camp fires, forest-beauty, and wildlife here on our 100 Acre Private Forest at Cabin Creek. So Kelly, if you didn't get to see & enjoy everything Cabin Creek has to offer, we'll welcome you back whenever you're ready! David & Terry
