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" room. 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 being cleaned.)
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.
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. 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.
3 House Rules (also under House Rules tab):
NO PETS. (We love pets but want to maintain the pristine condition of the solid-wood floors, doors, and walls.)
Shoes off while inside (again, to keep the hardwood floors in good condition).
Awesome stay for a weekend away from the city. Great little accessible room that feels like an entire cabin in the woods to yourself. Great Choice!
This was our second visit to the "Cabin in the Woods" It is most charming, warm, clean and convenient for us while visiting family. Julia is a wonderful hostess
My boyfriend and I stayed here for New Years to relax after the holidays and the cabin was the perfect place to do so. It was the ideal retreat from the crazy hectic schedules of the holiday season and work. The wooden stove and steam shower were great as well as the close proximity to walden pond. Overall we can't wait to go back!
This was our second time staying at the cabin. The last time we stayed it was late summer and too warm for the wood burning stove. This visit we arrived just in time for some snow flurries. The stove was excellent and the steam room was a treat. We love these weekend mini-vacations to the Concord area -- it feels like you're tucked away in one of those cutesy towns in rural Vermont (history! nature! fine dining!), but it's only a 30-minute drive. We recommend dining at Main Street Cafe and splurging for a fancy cocktail at Bondir. Wonderful!
This place is amazing. Situated in the woods of Sudbury, Massachusetts, this cabin appears (and smells--thanks to a fresh cut wood aroma) to have been newly added on to the house. You wouldn't know it's somebody else's house though, because it's laid out in such a way that it feels completely detached and private.
The inside of this place is beautiful and minimal, complete with a steam shower and fireplace stove (which we unfortunately didn't get a chance to use). Eating breakfast in the adjacent porch was really nice too. It's glass doors contribute to a real rustic, outdoorsy vibe.
It's very close to all the historical sites of Lexington and Concord and not too far from downtown Boston or the airport. Skips those pricey bed and breakfasts and stay here. It's awesome.
The place was a lovely as it looks in the photos, and then some. Very relaxing, comfortable, and a great launching point to explore the area.
Fantastic! I had a meeting in a nearby town and found this cabin to be the absolutely perfect place to decompress each night. The host was kind, clear, and thorough, thinking of and providing everything a weary traveler might need. The cabin was exactly as pictured, spotless, comfortable and beautiful. The wood-burning stove was a joy, the steam shower was an unexpected treat, and the overall experience was one that will draw me back even when I'm meeting in Boston and this drive will take me further than more convenient (though no way as amazing) places to stay. Thank you for everything!
Our stay was wonderful. The room was clean, and very quite. I cannot wait until our next stay. Phil was very open with updates to our visit. Upon arrival Judith was so kind to ensure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Visiting with her was a bonus to our visit. We highly recommended a stay.
A super cozy stay; I enjoyed the intimate setting, warm fire and wonderful steam shower. Comfortable bed too! The host was very friendly and kind.
The only thing that bothered me slightly was the traffic. Lots of cars buzzing by as this cabin in right off of a fairly busy road.
I would definitely stay here again!
My parents and I stayed in Phil's cabin for a night. Phil's mother Julia welcome us and was very helpful. It is located in the woods. We greatly enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is great for a relaxing break from the city.
