Yearning for a much needed break from New York City, my boyfriend and I spent a few hours searching for a secluded cabin in the woods located somewhere in New England. We envisioned having a large chunk of land to ourselves to explore, and a body of water to swim in. We finally stumbled upon this house, and everything in the pictures proved to be to our liking. We decided to take a chance.
The drive from the city was short and sweet; we got lost at the very end trying to find the entrance to the property, which is pretty hidden. The cabin faces the owner's house, so unfortunately when you decide to grill or sit by the fire, you're not alone. That said, the owner is very sweet and helpful, full of advice and recommendations. However, if you come here, you most likely won't be spending much time indoors - there's so much to see and do on the vast property. There are blueberry fields, lovely open spaces to have a picnic on, and a pond that has some interesting wildlife (toads and turtles might surprise you as you row around in the boat.) The property also has a river, but we didn't manage to find a path leading down to it (something worth asking the owner for...) At night, the owner helped us build a fire, and we sat there feeding it for a while, enjoying the shockingly bug-free night (but bring bug spray for the day-time.) In terms of groceries, we drove to the local ShopRite about 15 minutes away, and were happy with the food selection. But bringing along a cooler or two filled with food/drinks from home isn't a bad idea either. The house is small, but the attic where we slept is spacious and clean.
Overall, we had a memorable time and would definitely not mind coming back one day. Recommended for those seeking some privacy and everything nature has to offer.
