Just 15 min. from Letchworth Park, Cabin Creek Getaway features a secluded, rustic cabin right next to a cascading stream! With 100 acres of private forest, trails, and abundant wildlife, you can get away from it all, and be alone with just the people you enjoy spending time with!
The space is 100 Acres of private forest! Guests can bring a tent, RV, or... stay in our beautiful, rustic cabin!
The beautiful, knotty-pine cabin is off the grid, with options for rustic living or modern conveniences. Oil lamps give off a nostalgic, old-fashioned glow on the knotty pine walls, but solar power also provides convenient 12 volt electricity for lighting (and recharging your electronics!).
An old-time, natural heating wood stove turns the coldest of winter evenings comfortably cozy, but the LP gas furnace offers another convenient option.
Cabin Creek feels like stepping back in time with your favorite people, but with the comforts of an indoor composting toilet, hot showering, and 1/2 size refrigerator powered by LP gas!
Bath, body wash & shampoo, percolating coffee pot, fully equipped kitchen, firewood, and a small library of outdoor & self-sufficiency books provided.
We encourage and prefer our guests to bring your own bedding, but bedding is available at $15/bed, payable on arrival. Please let us know if you are requesting bedding.
Note: December 1 - March 31 is our Dry Cabin-Camp Shower Season. Due to our exposed plumbing, there is no running water available inside the cabin. Water is brought in for you, with dispensers provided in both the kitchen and bathroom. A camp shower is provided in the bathroom, and with water heated from the stove, hot showering is still available. Our composting toilet remains unaffected by winter weather.
During the winter season, we maintain the road leading to the cabin, so no matter how deep the snow gets, you can drive right in to the secluded site! Our snow removal is provided compliments of John Deere!
Our guests enjoy relaxing so many different ways here: Inside the the beautiful knotty-pine cabin, visiting out on the large covered deck, sitting in front of blazing camp fires with wood provided, exploring along the half mile of cascading creek & waterfalls, getting out on miles of hiking trails, and seeing the abundant wildlife - 100 acres all to yourself! Adventurers will enjoy going down the 100' climbing rope to view the hidden water falls... the only way to find them!
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:
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 quarter 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, right at the mouth of Cabin Creek ravine. Aside from the occasional vehicle traveling the road, you won't see or hear anyone who is not in your party!
We deliver a wonderful experience in a rugged area that is sparsely populated and seldom traveled.
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!

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
Location! Location! The cabin is within an easy twenty minute drive to so many great 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.
We are a professional couple who enjoy many different outdoor activities: hunting, photography, hiking, camping, ATV riding, horse riding, and observing wildlife. We enjoy God's creation, and feel so blessed to be living in this beautiful area, and we enjoy sharing it with others.
Terry Peck purchased this cabin in 2011
We purchased the property for its proximity to our home, excellent Deer & Wild Turkey Hunting, cascading stream, and the peacefulness of the deep woods. The land offers us the opportunity to enjoy everything we love to do outdoors, and staying in the cabin makes 'camping out' as enjoyable as it gets! We love it!
100 acres of forest that you don't have to share with anyone outside your party... need we say more? Cabin Creek Getaway really is a place nearby, that takes you far away! The peacefulness of the deep woods, the sound of the water going over the falls in the creek, the breeze blowing through the trees, and all the natural beauty... it has a way of soaking in, and melting away all the stress we accumulate from our busy lives, It works for us, and we know it will work for you too!
Harry and his friends are very personable. If any person is the average of their friends, then these guys are far above the average. They took excellent care of our property and cabin, and did a marvelous job of cleaning before they left! When they were introduced to operating the wood stove and oil lamps, they paid attention, and quickly became adept. They are also young professionals who are very likable, and it's easy to see why they enjoy each others' company. We enjoyed getting to know them! We sincerely hope to see them return to Cabin Creek Getaway in the future!

I am in love with Cabin Creek! This was our second time staying there and it's the only place we will consider staying. It is our perfect getaway. The cabin is cozy, warm and ready for you to step into and feel like you are home. The large expanse of forest and trails invite you to explore their many beautiful wonders. The creek is so beautiful and we've hiked up it both times we stayed. You'll definitely want boots though, in case you're like me and accidently step into a deep part of the stream! If you like photography like I do, this is a fabulous place to get out and shoot the beautiful scenery and wildlife. I took 200 pictures in just a couple hours time! The huge deck is a great spot to relax with your morning cup of coffee while listening to the birds and the distant train in the background. It feels like a step back in time. There's also a great fire pit to roast marshmallows and talk long into the night. It is a great place to either relax and unwind or get out and explore the many acres of forest. The cabin and grounds are immaculate and wonderfully maintained. Everything is ready for your arrival and you are greeted by the owners to help explain the features of the cabin, the grounds and all the great spots in the surrounding area you can visit. We've only had the pleasure of meeting Dave, but he is wonderful, gracious and very hospitable. He is the perfect host. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place and its' owners. I highly recommend staying here. I am already looking forward to next year when we go! Thanks again for our great weekend!
Our host, David, was so congenial at check in and throughout our stay. Both the cabin and the surrounding area are lovely. We enjoyed walking some of the trails on the property. Short drive to Letchworth State Park (Dunkin Donuts en route - yay)which we consider a highlight of any trip to Western NY. If you are looking for a quiet place to retreat, this is perfect, no internet, no tv - refreshing! We love trains, so enjoyed the occasional freight train whistles. Composting toilets were no problem, actually rather intriguing to use. Lighting is okay, a bit dim if you plan to do a lot of reading, but great for sitting and talking. Candles and kerosene lamps add to the nice rustic feel. Small fridge held all we needed for the few days, propane stove does the job, plus charcoal grill for meat and toasting marshmallows. Only small complaint was low pressure for the hot water, but we came out of the shower clean each day, regardless. If you appreciate being "green," this is a great spot. Recommended.
Wow! I couldn't say enough about this place to give the full effect. The cabin was extremely clean, comfortable, & had all the eccential needs to cook. The fridge was great to have. David was awesome. Explained in detail everything about the place, stores and restaurants around us and what's the best places to visit. The property is amazing. You have to go down the 100 ft rope. Awesome!! Will definitely be back. We had a group of 12 and everyone had a great time. We had one night of very hard rain, thunderstorm and still had great time. Not one complaint...
A cozy cabin, providing a great escape from the rush of modern life without sacrificing safety or comfort. The owners are very warm, friendly and inviting.
We really enjoyed our stay at Cabin Creek! David and Terry were great hosts and you could tell they take really good care of the cabin. We all fit very comfortably in the cabin (5 adults, 1 child) and there was a great spot to pitch a tent if you had additional people with you. My favorite was the covered porch. We unfortunately had some (much needed) rain our first night there but it didn't bother us at all! We stayed on the porch and enjoyed our time all the same. The creek was close enough that I felt comfortable letting my 8 year old go exploring on his own and he loved it! (Parents: my son was unplugged for 3 days and did not complain about it once! So awesome!) There was great hiking on the property and a secret waterfall that was really great. It wasn't flowing while we were there because of the drought but I can imagine it's beauty if it had been flowing! We took a 20 minute drive to the incredible Letchworth State Park and enjoyed swimming and hiking there. The waterfalls are a must see at Letchworth!
One thing to note is there is an active railroad near the property that had approximately 4-6 trains go through per day. You can't see it from the cabin but you can hear it. It never lasted long and it didn't bother us, in fact we thought it was pretty cool! But if that's not your thing, maybe it might bother you? It was a great time at Cabin Creek, we highly recommend staying there!
Cabin Creek Getaway is a very well built cabin - very clean and much larger than I anticipated. Our family (Mom, Dad, and two girls aged 7 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay. The beds were super comfortable and the over-sized covered deck with a gigantic picnic table was a huge plus. Dave and Terry are wonderful hosts. The cabin falls short of a 5-star review due to some omissions in the property description. The cabin description states that the cabin is situated on a 100 acres, which led me to romanticize a rustic cabin tucked deep in the woods away from all civilization. In reality, the cabin is at the very edge of the shared 100 acre plot right next to a seasonal road which has relatively heavy pick-up truck and ATV traffic flying down hill. That made this Mom a bit nervous for the kids to be outdoors. The creek was all dried up (totally not the owners' fault!). Also, no where does the description mention that there is a freight train less than a stone's throw away the runs from 5am to way past 11pm blaring its whistle - even on Saturday, Sunday, and the 4th of July. For a get-away vacation, this is a rather unwelcome wake-up call. Finally, just as a fair warning to future renters, the composting toilets are actually 5-gallon buckets, not the traditional composting outhouse style you may imagine. Our family has camped for nearly 20 years - carry in tenting to yurts to rustic cabins, and although the stay was very enjoyable, I would question the price for the value. Next time I'd consider staying in Stony Brook park in a cabin with a shared shower that has consistent water temperature for much less than half the price. However, this was a wonderful vacation. Final thought - if you enjoy cooking, bring your own knives.
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.
