We stayed at the cabin for three nights at the end of June. As a lifelong Central NJ resident, I decided to find out what Northern Jersey is all about and this cabin was a very good starting place. The cabin was clean and fully equipped right down to the firewood. The swimming beach on Culver Lake is a perfect place to spend the afternoon. Mom gets to sit in the shade on a nice grassy lawn and the kids can play in the sand and water. Beautiful Stokes State Forest is only a couple of miles away and you can even hike a part of the Appalachian Trail (which we did, of course). There are quite a few things to discover in the area, but we'll have to do that next time.
An evening fire in the cabin's chiminea ended the day perfectly. We made smores on the fire every night and even cooked a few hot dogs on sticks.
Sitting on the back porch provided lovely and peaceful views of the woods and wildlife. It was a perfect place to read a book.
We hope to return next spring, for sure. Thank you, Barbara, for your hospitality.
