The space
*** Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you must bring your own linens, blankets and pillows ***

Extremely private hand built Post & Beam cabin off the grid (no electricity) on a beautiful 100 acre farm overlooking the lush Hudson valley. Gorgeous views of Vt. on a private road 15 miles from Saratoga or Glens Falls, minutes from I-87. Private dock for kayaking/canoeing the tranquil Hudson River, and wonderful country roads for cycling. Airtight woodstove inside to keep things toasty. Please bring firewood for outdoor use in moderate Temps. Adk mountains minutes away. We provide propane lanterns and propane as well as a propane camp stove. 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. For sanitary reasons we are now providing single use plates and cups and utensils. Feel free to bring kitchenware from home. Due to the pandemic we ask that you bring your own linens. In cool and cold weather months firewood for the indoor woodstove is provided. In warm weather outdoor "camp wood" may be purchased from many local groceries and convenient stores.

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. Please understand that renting the cabin does not include access to the whole farm. Please respect our privacy in regard to the house, the barns, and paddock areas that the horses call home.

Guest access
The cabin and surrounding 50 acres may be explored on foot, but please respect our privacy in regard to our house and barns on the property. There is access to a room with electrical outlets for your use.

Other things to note
We can't stress enough how important driving slowly on the access Rd. (Wells Lane) and around the farm is. Please stay below 15 MPH at all times.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we ask that guests bring their own linens, blankets and pillows. This will help keep everyone safer. Thank You.
