About the Property

Private Cabin, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, on 10 secluded wooded acres.

Note: January 1 - March 31, we recommend 4WD or AWD vehicles only. Depending on snow conditions, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to drive your vehicle closer than 200 ft to the cabin due to snow depths and the road plows filling in the driveway entrance (we don't plow the driveway any longer due to significant damage in previous years). Our 4WD pickup climbs over the pile without any issues most all the time.

Winter is a special time at the Cozy Cabin though! The trails are generally passable with hundreds of tracks (deer, fox, raccoon and others) crisscrossing the landscape. The Hemlock area when its covered with snow is about as quiet as you can get. If you are up for a little adventure, the solitude and peace you will find are well worth it! Venture on in and discover just how much fun it is being cozied up with the one you love! With a hot shower, romantic candlelight and plenty of great movies, you will have a fun filled and romantic time.

* Winter No Worry Guarantee: In the event of extreme winter weather that makes roads impassible, we will provide you with a full refund, including fees.

Pristine cabin, custom built in 2010, knotty-pine walls and ceilings, comfortably furnished and fully equipped (electric heat, large shower). NO PETS. NO SMOKING INSIDE CABIN. NO SHOES INSIDE CABIN.

**WOOD BURNING STOVE IS DECORATIVE ONLY - AWD OR 4WD VEHICLE RECOMMENDED DURING THE WINTER MONTHS**

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

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.

Why the Owner Chose Dalton, NY, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
