My two girlfriends and I rented this cabin to get away from it all and de-stress - and it was a wonderful trip! The cabin is in a gated community, which is nice and safe, but it's very secluded and private. The wood-fired sauna was amazing! It was a bit cold, so we were glad to have brought pre-cut wood bundles for the wood stove - it warmed up the place in an instant! If you go, bring your bluetooth device - there are Bose speakers which totally fill the place with amazing sound. Also, the kitchen is fully stocked so you can cook up a storm, no worries.
Ben was very kind and answered our million questions before our trip. Due to commuter traffic and other unexpected issues, we arrived very late and he was very kind about that. He always answered our questions immediately via text or phone so that was SUPER helpful. Highly recommended if you want to get away from the craziness of life.
If you are looking for a simple, cool cabin in an isolated area, but close enough to a few taverns, grocery stores etc. This is your place. We , guys weekend for 3, went in 3ft of snow and -4 degrees, but the wood stove provided more than enough to heat the house.
We would like to return in the fall where we could enjoy the deck and outside more.
The cabin was a revelation! Our family felt completely at home here. Ben was at the ready for any questions. We are counting the days till we are able to return.
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at the cabin. It was my second time staying here and it was just as great as the first time! We had the pleasure of meeting Ben and he was super courteous and helpful. This place is my favorite!
Ben's place was the perfect getaway from NYC. We needed a secluded cabin near camelback mountain for skiing and couldn't have found a better option. I personally liked the fact that we had to chop our own wood and build fires in the cabin and in the sauna (which was lovely). The cabin is not near any other homes and looking out the windows all we saw were snow-covered trees. It is in a gated community however, which enhanced safety... That was a nice feeling. We even saw a family of deer crossing the road outside the cabin! Pretty magical all around. Would definitely recommend this quaint getaway. Ben was extremely responsive and everything was exactly as he described, which he was very thorough in doing. A+!
Ben was a great host, making sure that the driveway and porch were shoveled for our arrival (at least a foot of snow on the ground), and the cabin (+sauna) was wonderful -- quiet, remote, and cozy!
There were a couple of hiccups/miscommunications on the first day of our stay, but they were resolved quickly and Ben was really sweet about it. The only other small hiccup was that only one burner on the gas stove would light by itself, but the others turned out to be easy to hand light. Overall the stay was really enjoyable! The cabin is cute and rustic, yet comfortable, and the neighborhood is a lovely gated community. I definitely encourage anyone looking for a quiet getaway-but-not-too-away to check out this cute little cabin!
We had a great time at Bens cabin! From the delicious chocolate pistachio candies that were left for us (with and adorable "Eat Me" hand drawn note, to the deer in our yard, the gorgeous cabin, and the much appreciated sauna, we loved it all. It was a surprise weekend with friends for my guys birthday, and we all had a fantastic time. Ben was great with responding to all of out questions quickly, even suggesting a semi secret sledding spot nearby (that even the security guard didnt know about!). We're already thinking about heading back in the spring to check out all the warm weather activities there are to enjoy there!
Wonderful stay! Will surely stay here again if we pass by Philadephia! Will recommend this place to everyone who are looking for place to stay in philly!!!
Ben's cabin was lovely, exactly what I was expecting. I went with two friends, we spent most of the time tending the fire, relaxing in the sauna, and playing board games... completely relaxing. Ben quickly responded to any questions we had. I would suggest bringing a few fire starters, there was only one in the house when we arrived. Otherwise, no complaints. I would love to return!
Ben, his wife, two daughters, in-laws and dog stayed at my house for 3 days. They left the place clean and followed the instructions I had sent to Ben.
It was a pleasure hosting you.
Ben is a nice, easygoing guy and was a pleasure to host and hang out with.
Ben is one of the most responsible and reliable people I know. I have stayed at his cabin many times and always find things in great working order, clean and tidy. Definitely a great guy to rent from!
