Propane lanters inside, Un-heated Outhouse next to cabin. Custom built BBQ pit with hooks for Dutch ovens, outdoor cooking only please. Loft, futon, and Queen size bed. Come and enjoy our little slice of heaven. This is the best time of year to enjoy the outdoors with cooler temperatures, as well as dozens of fantastic restaurants to choose from. Excellent 3G and 4G signal from Verizon and AT&T. All cooking and eating utensils are provided.

Must-do activities:
1. Skydiving and Golf at Airway Meadows (3 miles)
2. Harness horse racing and Casino/Night club (15 miles)
3. Saratoga Performing Arts Center.World class entertainment

No need to check in, the front door of the cabin is always open so go on up and make yourself at home and if for some reason myself or my wife are not there when you arrive, our caretaker Allan most likely will be.

Please don't be alarmed by the occasional presence of flying pests, it is after all a cabin on a farm.

The cabin is fully insulated, and has storm windows for chillier temperatures. We've slept in it comfortably down to 0 Fahrenheit !

The cabin has no electricity. PS during wet and soggy weather, it's possible that the short (50 yard) road to the cabin may have to be done on foot.

We're very sorry, but because the farm is home to lots of animals, we're unable to invite pet guests.

As long as you’re okay with no warm water or electricity, Matthew’s cabin is in a beautiful setting. We didn’t meet or interact with Matthew, so if you’re looking for a quiet stay, you’ve found the right place.
