Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Mahican Cabin is at the highest peak of the Hoosac Range known as western summit and borders 750 acres of protected land so social distancing is not a problem. Enjoy the modern comforts of a real bed (memory foam mattress), A/C (or heat), in cabin mini fridge, and a full bath inside the cabin. A deck overlooking the most amazing Berkshires Sunset. Hang out at your own hammock, make s'mores the way you used to and grill a perfect steak to complete the day! It's a nature's retreat for 2.

The space
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

COVID-19 changed everything, including The Wigwam Western Summit and we decided to offer our cabin guests not a vacation but a different way of living where they can reconnect with themselves and their loved ones in an environment where they can relax without choosing to interact with anyone and yet taken care of in every way.

What you are booking is a slice of the Berkshires, with a cabin in the woods thrown in. You get an outdoor living room, a firepit, an outdoor dining area with a private picnic table, a hammock and a park-style charcoal grill.

We have created the “Cabin Concierge Service" because we believe vacations will change – guests will appreciate services being done without personal interaction. We can setup your firepit, clean and stock your grill and deliver cakes, wine, hot meals and sushi to the cabin in picnic baskets.

We also have three other cabins on the summit and they are all available on airbnb. They are the Pocumtuck, Wampanoag and Mohawk Cabins. All cabins have similar setups - all have amazing views of America's Switzerland, access to our private trail system, private firepit/BBQ/picnic areas, a hammock and your own self contained tiny home.

Our summit property borders hundreds of acres of protected land, outdoor showers, firepit, rock gardens, hammocks, hummingbirds, owls, lightning bugs, butterflies and beautiful sunsets. Each cabin is a separate house and has heat and air condition. Instead of a gym we have miles and miles of trails, instead of a pool, the cold river, deerfield river and swimming holes in Savoy State Park are nearby.

The best part about staying at the Wigwam Cabin is the food. Lea is an award winning cook (has won local chowder competitions) and we have a sushi chef, two bakers and a chocolatier working for us. Meals are ordered in advance and delivered to the cabins in picnic baskets. Celebrating a special occasion? Our baker can make you a low sugar Black Forest or carrot cake delivered to your cabin. Sushi at sunset? Can do!

Cabin guests are also invited to use the charcoal bbq grill, the stump table, the Perch Bar table and you very own firepit and a private picnic area. Pamper yourself with Wigwam's Cabin Concierge service and Wayne setup your firepit and stock it with enough split wood for the evening! You just need to show up.

Please note, the Mahican is NOT a pet friendly cabin and Smoking is not allowed in or around this cabin. Guests are also encouraged to opt for the BYOB cleaning option (Bring your own beddings) for a reduction of $45 of the cleaning fees (which will be refunded after Airbnb releases the fund to the host). If you choose the BYOB option please let Lea know in advance. We don't have a way of changing the linen option once you check in.

I've retired from working in the corporate world to focus on my second act (eco tourism) in the Berkshires. In 2018 I met the man of my dreams (Wayne) and together we bought the Wigwam Western Summit which had been abandoned for more than a decade back to life. We renovated the Wigwam Coffeehouse in 2018, the 4 cabins in 2019. During Covid since we couldn't open the coffee house we turned our energy to completely renovate the Wigwam Lodge. We love spending time outdoors whether it's hiking, running or snowshoeing. People say nature is food for the soul and we are constantly hungry for more of it! We love hosting and are available to provide recommendations to make your stay more enjoyable!
