The Space

Handsome post and beam cabin, 8 x 14'; planed hemlock interior. Built in sleeping platform and drawers, futon mattress. Sited at edge of owner's 70ac hardwood forest, walking trails, on dead end road. No heat/elec/water in cabin. No cell signal probably. You're away from it all. 2lst C. outhouse. Advice on hiking, canoeing, day trips, artist studios, historic sites, museums, antiquing. Pet friendly.

Hardwood forest leafing out in May. Very beautiful. Red maples begin to 'display' first of autumn foliage in late August. Most colorful display, late Sept - Columbus Day. After Columbus Day, only beeches have leaves, the rest fall from wind and rain forces. Snow cover by mid-Nov for Xcntry, Snowshoeing.

West Kortright Centre nearby with cultural programming and community events May - Oct. Oneonta, 15 miles. Cooperstown, 35 mi. Delhi, 10 mi. Bloomville, 8 mi.

East Meredith's Hanford Mills Museum, historic site of water- and steam-powered milling, is 3 miles away.

Silence is a special amenity of this land. Little or no road noise.

Linens, blankets, flashlight, compass provided.

Guest Access

Rugged hiking along divide, 2200', between Susquehanna and West Branch Delaware watersheds. Rugged hiking shoes, heavy canvas trousers, shirt coat. Bushwacking. There's no marked trail; you follow the terrain.

Interaction with Guests

Easy self check-in if host not present. Yours is the only cabin in the forest. I don't go to guest cabin unless invited. Guests may come to my place, the Saphouse, at any time for information or any items they need. In an emergency, no matter what the hour.

When I'm present, breakfast served one morning of your stay. Time to be arranged. Currently I'm painting cottonwoods 'blossoming' in New Mexico.
