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 Finger Lakes

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!

Cabin in tip top shape

  • 5 of 5

We didn't stay at the cabin much during our visit to Letchworth State Park, but the cabin was spotless and had everything and more that you would need for a stay. There were also cute little tags throughout the cabin with instructions or reminders on them. It's a very quiet, remote area and although we did not have kids, it would be a great place for kids to be outdoors and not worry about them.

Even Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5

When you walk through the door, you will know you have made the right choice! This is a beautiful little cabin with all the amneties you need! It looks even nicer in person than in the photos. We made good use of the kitchen, the charcoal grill, and the firepit. We enjoyed the hiking trails at the cabin too. The area had alot of rain prior to our arrival, so the trails had numerous large puddles, which added to the adventure! The owners have placed walking stones in several of them to make the water crossings easier.

Some notes for future renters: The drive to Letchworth is scenic and easy. If you need wifi, the gas station/dunkin donuts/convenience store at the intersection of 408 and 70 in Dalton is a good spot for taking care of some quick emails, etc. My Verizon cell phone had 2-3 bars for phone calls at the cabin. My family had zero reception on their providers at the cabin, which we expected, but found service closer to Letchworth. If you are only staying a few nights and only need a small amount of firewood, we found a few individuals selling wood in their yards near Letchworth Park entrances.

Cozy, beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute cabin with a lot of character inside and out. Between the coziness inside the cabin, the outdoor fire pit in front of the cabin to the cute trails behind the cabin, there was much to enjoy.

Kinda wish we could have stayed longer ...

  • 5 of 5

but we had a boathouse on Lake Joseph to get to :-) Was the perfect option for our first stop on our June honeymoon travels though - especially since we got engaged in a torrential January downpour in the little gazebo at Letchworth :-) I love these little cabins and all the cool artistic touches. We were pleasantly surprised that the inside is even nicer than we expected from the outside. The owner was really helpful and responsive and worked with us on our schedule that was outside the normal rental options offered. Thanks!

Wonderful cabin that is very well appointed, quiet setting, and close to many beautiful parks

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several cabins like this one, but this is by far our favorite. The owners are great, and they have really done a wonderful job of stocking and decorating the cabin. We had a great stay and would love to go back.

Perfect as our home base

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was very convenient for us to go to Letchworth State Park, and also worked out great for a day trip to visit a few of the Finger Lakes. The owners, Bob and Peg were very helpful in the pre-trip planning stages. It was nice to meet Peggy when we arrived at the house. She even had cookies waiting on the counter for us! You can tell that the owners take great pride in their cabin, as they should, it is a nice little gem out in the woods. Very quiet, extremely clean, no real neighbors so to speak. Nice little walking trails.

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