Matthew and his family were exemplary hosts, accommodating and warm but not intrusive in any way. It is impossible to fully describe the beauty and serenity that they have harnessed over the past decade(s) and are now graciously extending to others; they have created a truly impeccable home upstate, and it must be physically felt to be understood. With that said, our expectations were exceeded in every way, owed largely to the conscious design of their entire property and the thoughtful and loving details they have poured into the cabin and our short experience.
This place is unspeakably beautiful, rain or shine. Privacy is not an issue. We grilled steak, pork, fish, vegetables; we read to each other by the fire; we drank wine and bourbon and listened to the radio; we picked apples and walked for hours through the surrounding woods and were stunned by the natural beauty, especially the rock formations. One can feel that this is a gently guided experience by someone who really gets it. If only we could have been there for longer. Thank you for sharing your home with us; it would be a privilege to return.

That is simply the kindest most thoughtful review ever.
Matt, thank you so much for letting us rent your cabin this weekend. We had an amazing time. Everything was perfect and we loved every single detail and attention that came with it. We want to come back another time. Cheers. Thibaut
Matt's place absolutely perfect for a weekend upstate. We'll definitely be back.
It was amazing!!
The cabin was everything it was described to be! We were completely isolated for the entire weekend, the cabin was incredibly comfortable and well-appointed, and the farm itself was amazing. A truly relaxing retreat.
The nearby town and restaurant recommended by Matthew was amazing as well -- great food and lots of antique/vintage shops.
I loved our upstate getaway at The William Brown cabin! Mathew was very helpful and always available to answer any questions via text. The cabin is perfect and very thoughtfully designed for a couple. From the wonderful fire place on the deck, to the amazing Japanese soaking tub and the amazing private swimming lake. We will definitely visit again next summer! I was actually really sad to leave the tranquility of the space to come back to the city. I would highly recommend a weekend stay at this incredible bespoke cabin.
My boyfriend and I spent a lovely weekend at this perfectly appointed cabin. Matt is a gracious and thoughtful host. We would gladly stay here again and will be recommending it to our friends looking for a peaceful country getaway.
Only about 3 hours from NYC and you'll feel like you are in another world. The perfect place to decompress and recoup from the city life. The listing was spot on. Everything Matt promised was delivered! Peace, tranquility, chirping birds, quiet nights for sleeping, and lucky for us, perfect weather. Matt and his adorable family were perfect hosts, enjoying their own lives and being hands off while attentive at the same time! We'll def. be back and def. recommend this to local NYC friends.
Our trip to the William Brown Cabin was incredible, our excellent host Matthew has gone to great lengths to create the perfect get away space.
The compact cabin is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a getaway in nature, the attention to detail combined with the beautiful surroundings make this a very special place.
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our stay. Even though the first day was all rain we found a way to have a great fire and even grilled. There is also great hiking nearby. The cabin was so serene and quite I loved it!
