As you cross Crystal Creek and approach the cabin you can't help but feel a sense of anticipation. It appears to be a part of the natural landscape as it nestles under mature trees of oak and pine and is placed amid native rock next to the lively creek. It occupies the perfect spot within our 65 acre conservation property. Foot trails lead to several creeks and waterfalls, through forest and meadow to the Green River which fronts the property.
The master bedroom, living room and two upstairs bedrooms are housed in the reconstructed 250 year old chestnut log cabins that have been moved to this site. A modern kitchen with large granite topped center island, an east facing sunny breakfast nook with built in black walnut benches and a generous sized farmhouse table seating 10 with possible extension is in the center section. This section also includes a renovated full bath with a new and large shower, toilet, and vessel sink. Also conveniently located in the bathroom are a washer, dryer and utility sink with access to the back deck. Upstairs a comfortable sitting area with a convertible couch and TV connects to the two bedrooms and full bath also newly renovated. All the beds have new mattresses purchased in 2019. The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed. It's special feature is a small screened in porch facing towards the creek and the calming sounds of the waterfall. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a full size bed and a twin bed while the other has a queen size, and two twin beds. One of the twin beds is low under the eave and the preferred choice of any child. A deck and picknick table with electric BBQ grill off the kitchen invites casual outdoor dining while the front porch is the place to relax in a rocking chair with a glass of wine, listen to the waterfall, the children playing in the creek, enjoy the sunset and any passing wildlife. Close by is a small pond recently stocked with sunfish and cat fish. Unwind while fishing, feeding the fish or simply sitting on the dock or using the canoe. A trail leads to the Green River while numerous smaller trails meander throughout the property inviting exploration. The water level of the Green River fluctuates due to an upstream dam. Depending on conditions there is the possibility of fishing, body surfing, skipping stones, watching minnows in shallow pools or sitting and meditating on the conveniently placed bench on the bank of the river as butterflies and herons come to visit. In season we share our blackberries and blueberries. Edible mushrooms such as Chanterelle and Oyster mushrooms can be gathered and are a special treat. If there is any interest we will teach how to identify edible and poisonous mushrooms.
