Perfect for cozy stays away from it all, our comfortable cabin has its own private entrance, a skylight, a fireplace stove -- and even a steam room -- all just steps from great walks, history, and outdoor sports.
On the Sudbury River just a 30-minute drive from Boston and Cambridge, we have a 2-room private cabin with its own entrance and enclosed veranda attached to one end of our house.
Paneled in solid pine, it is rustic in look but newly constructed with up-to-date facilities including central heating, a new wood-burning stove, a steam room shower in the private bath, a skylight, and a "breeze-way" veranda. The standard-size double bed sleeps two comfortably and there is an empty closet in the entry hall for your things. (Please note: There are red curtains on all the windows. These photos were taken when a set of curtains was down being cleaned.)
WiFi access, towels, linens, blankets are all provided as well as an electric kettle and a small selection of teas, coffee, cocoa, and hot and cold cereal for breakfast in the breezeway room off the bedroom. There is also a large cooler for perishable snacks and food.
If you have a young child, we have a crib for infants and the trundle-bed sofa in the room easily works as a bed for an older child. Ask and we'll figure arrangements out in each case.
Ideal for a weekend getaway from Boston, canoeing and kayaking on the river, hiking and cycling, and local history tours, there are numerous attractions nearby. The Sudbury River, Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, and the Pantry Brook Wildlife Area are within walking distance (5 min or less). Thoreau's Walden Pond, the Old North Bridge, Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, the Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Hawthorne's Old Manse, the Louisa May Alcott House, Longfellow's Wayside Inn, and the historic Revolutionary War battle fields of Concord and Lexington are all within a 15-minute drive.
NO Pets. (We love pets but want to maintain the pristine condition of the solid-wood floors, doors, and walls.)

This is my 2nd stay in the cabin. Just like the 1st time, it was clean and cosy, and I especially like the steam shower! The host communicates very well, asks for my arrival time to be there for check-in and was very accommodating when my flight was delayed.
Phil and Julia's cabin in the woods is a wonderful retreat. We really enjoyed staying here and it was the perfect base for exploring the rich historical and cultural sites in the area. It's beautiful -- true to the photos and spotlessly clean! The fireplace was a great addition to a snowy weekend. Julia was very accommodating about giving us driving directions and making us feel at home.
Multiple stays here and it continues to be wonderful. Clean, great location, and most importantly for the winter of 2015, warm!
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy, quiet cabin. Julia, the hostess was adorable and helpful. Loved the steam shower!
My first time with AirBnB and a wonderful surprise. Excellent hosts who were very patient with my weather induced travel changes. The room was quiet and private and very well laid out. When I was there it was mid winter (business trip), so the wood stove was a wonderful addition. I will be back. Thanks!
After a run of bad luck on this leg of our vacation, my boyfriend and I were relieved to arrive at last at this lovely cabin. It's impeccably clean and inviting, with a wood-burning stove, steam room, and plenty of fluffy towels and warm drinks. It's a little difficult to find, but Julia answered all our calls until we got there. We were glad we did. Do visit nearby Walden Pond!
