My place is a small mid-century modern glass and wood cabin 300 yards away from a charming small lake. The house is NOT on the lake itself. It is surrounded by trees and there is no view of the lake from the house. ) The only heat is a wood stove... so please be hearty and ready to stoke a fire if the weather is cold!
This is a retreat for couples, solo adventurers, and families.

The space
Wake up surrounded by oak, beech and maple. Lots of glass and no curtains, so don't choose this if you are worried about raccoons and chipmunks seeing you naked. This house is raised about six feet off the ground - my kids call it "The Tree House." (Technically it's not in a tree, but it feels like it.) This is a total escape and a place to unplug – however I did add internet during the pandemic, so now there is good wifi and a hooked up projection system.

The house is only composed of two rooms plus bathroom. An open plan kitchen and living area with a queen bed make up the 'main house' and a separate bunk house has three single beds. The bunk house and main house are connected by a deck. Its all very small, but too big to be called a tiny house. There is also a rear deck with outdoor shower and fire pit. There are some musical instruments that hang on the walls.

There is a wood stove for heat but if you want to use it you have to purchase wood unless we can make a special arrangement. Only conditioned hard wood can be burned in the stove -- bags of it are available at Stewart's down near Hoosick falls.

This lake is a small private community where most people know each other and houses mostly stay in extended families. The lake does not allow motorboats, so it remains clean and quiet.
