About the Property

100 Acre Private Forest Property Featuring A Secluded Creek-Side Cabin!

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:

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.

GUEST ACCESS:

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 NEIGHBORHOOD:

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!

FUN ACTIVITIES:

100 foot climbing rope descending to hidden water falls (On your own).
.22 caliber handgun & rifle instruction & target shooting by appointment.
Canoe rentals & river float trips by appointment.
Guided hikes/mountain biking to beaver ponds & hanging bog by appointment.
Hot Air Ballooning over Letchworth Park (Outside Vendor)
White Water Rafting in Letchworth Park (Outside Vendor)
Fishing at Nearby Wildlife Management Area (On your own).

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!

GETTING AROUND:

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Dalton, NY, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
