Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

My charming log cabin sits on 100 acres of private land which adjoins 2200 of New York State Forest. It overlooks a small pond which is stocked with bass. You are welcome to catch a few and cook them fresh on the Weber gas grill. The front porch is comfortable with beautiful views of the pond, hills and the valley below.

It is a cozy cabin with a sleeping loft and comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a shower bath. The loft has a double bed and the first floor has a double futon.

Bring your bicycles in the summer or your cross country skis or snowshoes in the winter or your hiking boots year round, as the stare forest is full of groomed trails. Or bring your books and just relax and enjoy your surroundings.

We are only 12 minutes from Ellicottville, New York which is a quaint little ski and resort town. You can ski in the winter or golf in the summer. There are world class restaurants for fine dining and wonderful shopping.

It is the perfect place for solitude or a romantic getaway. I hope you will come and enjoy this special place on Golden Hill!!

A rustic cabin - with modern amenities - located on a bluff in Great Valley, New York

  • 5 of 5

We lived the location and our dog lived the snow. A quiet and secluded cabin that was warm and comfortable.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at the cabin. It was exactly as described and did not disappoint. The cabin was warm, cozy, and quiet. A great place to reconnect with nature yet close enough to Ellicottville to enjoy some shopping and a nice dinner.

A perfect getaway to the cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience it was this past weekend in this very CHARMING & rustic cabin in the woods! Our host Bette set the tone perfectly as she let us in & we are so happy that we chose this perfect spot ! It was only a 20 minute drive into Ellicottville too!

We enjoyed a cup of coffee each morning from the front porch as the sun would rise over the hill ... the view is absolutely beautiful! Each and every detail of our stay was exceptional. The cabin was so cozy and decorated adorably. It looks exactly how it's pictured .

We can't wait to come back and stay again!! Thank you Bette for your awesome hospitality!
