In honor of Thoreau’s influence on society and conservation, we’ve transformed what was originally built as the estate’s “summer kitchen” in the late 1800’s/ early 1900’s into a quaint one room cabin. This cabin has hosted many a wild game roast along with nights of wine, laughter, song and philosophizing. This cabin harkens back to days of old with a craftsman handmade stone fireplace which was fashioned from river rock harvested on the property.

The space
For sleeping quarters, there is a cozy loft with queen mattress where you can enjoy the view of the fireplace while drifting softly to sleep in the fresh country air. (Please note that there is a small 8 foot ladder to access the loft area with a 20" opening which may not be easily accessible if you have a hard time getting up & down narrow areas like this). There's also a full size futon on the main floor.

Please note: There is a fully equipped detached full bathroom that is shared with guests staying in our other small cabins. Thoreau's cabin is a 'semi-rustic cabin' which has electricity & heat, but not running water. Guests are provided water for drinking, dishes, etc.

Guest access
Fish Creek River. For liability reasons, we do not offer flotation devices such as life jackets, tubing, kayaks, etc. We encourage you to bring your own and enjoy at your own risk.

We have several miles of hiking trails on our property and are happy to recommend local hiking/trails.

We offer 5 camp fire pits on our property.

May through October we have a screened-in three-season recreation room. We also have a small camp store stocked with snacks, local seasonal produce and toys for kids.

We're the Marin Family... Christophe, Meghan and Sophie. We love to have interesting outdoor-lovin' guests visit our little slice of heaven and enjoy the rejuvenating energy of nature! Amidst 60 acres of riverfront property, trails through forests you will find that we are simple. We aim to sustain ourselves without wasting natural energies and resources. If you wish to get away from the hectic duties and obligations of society then Wellnesste is the place for you. We enjoy living in the peace & quiet of the Central NY countryside. We love having kind, fun, interesting people come out for a visit and enjoy the outdoors in our cabins. We've been lucky enough to host wonderful human beings from around the world (France, New Zealand, Germany, England, Ireland, etc.) and around the states (too many to list). We hope that you'll consider coming out for a visit to enjoy all of the natural beauty that upstate New York (CNY/Adirondacks) has to offer.
