I recently returned from the quaint town of New Milford where I had the most idyllic weekend at John and Al's cabin. The cabin was in perfect condition and very welcoming, clean and homey. John welcomed me and made me feel very comfortable as well as respected my privacy for the duration of my stay. The lake is visible from the screened in porch and is such an inviting spot to have morning tea while the birds sing you a sweet song. At night, the birds hush and the peeping spring frogs take over the chorus of songs and lull you to sleep. This is very private, secluded and nature- centric place for a soul retreat-- which is exactly what I had! Thank you!
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cabin. The fall foliage was absolutely amazing during our stay. Watching the sunset over the pond was stunning. It was a relaxing experience in a cozy retreat.
My partner and I had an amazing weekend away at John's cabin. John and Al were very helpful and friendly, and were very accessible if we had any questions. The property is absolutely beautiful and our experience was one of tranquility. We loved being able to walk in the woods, swim in the pond, sunbath, cozy up in front the the fire and easily cook with all of the amenities we could possibly need. This quite possibly may have been our favourite Airbnb stay and we hope to be back!
We had a lovely experience! If you're looking for a rustic camping-style experience but with all the comforts of civilization, this place is it! It is so wonderfully secluded and quiet. It was too cold to swim, but we still enjoyed going out on the rowboat. The campfire is a blast at night. It was easy to really cook between the grill, propane stove, and toaster oven, but if you want to be lazy, there's a microwave! John and Al were fantastic, even recommending a great locals' breakfast place. They were very informative and open to any help we might need as well as giving us all the space we needed. We will be back for sure.
this is an amazing place. it is very comfortable and peaceful. being able to swim and relax around the pond is really nice. I truly love this place.
The pictures can't do this place justice-- it's even lusher, greener, and more ensconced than it looks here. It's a truly tranquil setting that feels so secluded as to be its own world.
The cabin is delightful, cozy, and well appointed with kitchen gear. Of course the listing's not wrong about it being a rustic experience, but there's just about every convenience you could ask for-- electricity, hot water, decent cell service if you need to send an email, etc. (The outdoor shower in particular feels less like roughing it and more like a luxury spa.) It's the kind of place that Airbnb seems made for-- you have the privilege of stepping not into a hotel or a resort, but into an instant sense of home and place. Everything to do outside the cabin -- building a fire, walking the property, swimming, boating, or sunning yourself by the pond -- is lovely, but if for some reason you couldn't do any of it, it'd be worth the trip to sit on the porch and take it all in.
Al was a wonderful host, explaining in detail all the cabin's operations and then referring us to the extensive supplementary information -- maps, info on the property and area, local businesses -- available for perusal in the cabin. Because he set us up so well we didn't need anything else from him during our visit, but he would've been more than happy to do anything. He is exceptionally kind and wants you to feel welcome in his home.
We should've stayed longer!
Exceptional experience and host. The place was very clean and cozy.
Swam in the private lake in the day and barbecued fun in the evening
Made for a wonderful New York weekend retreat. Will definitely be coming back again. We would suggest this experience to anyone. Lovely!
