Winter update...we are located directly on snowmobil trail system 4C. This unique and well-appointed two room cabin nests high on a hillside overlooking Hinckley lake (400' away) The thick forest is home to all sorts of wildlife, you may be lucky enough to have the loons wake you and it's common to see bald headed eagles. Kitchen is stocked with staples.. The cabin comes equipped with Dolby surround-sound and a TV/ DVD unit. The floors are hand-painted, yet tough enough to withstand normal wear and tear. There is an interesting assortment of books, games and videos for quiet, rainy days. Enjoy it all in front of a crackling fire. Latest addition, an outdoor shower and bathtub!
Extra photos can be sent via cell phone on request: Your well-mannered dog is very welcome. This cosy cabin/ week-end package has been designed to facilitate a no-hassle escape from a hectic lifestyle. You literally need only throw a few clothes into an overnight bag and hop in the car, everything else is supplied. If you forget to pack your toothbrush, there will be one here for you.
I'm a single, strong willed, independent girl with an artistic bent, loves living in the woods and especially sharing the experience with city folk. I teach part time at an area college, am currently learning how to use power tools (!!!) love to cook, sew kayak and chainsaw. Can't chop wood though:(
D Burkhart purchased this cabin in 2002
I fell in love with the place first time I saw it. Something magical about the way it tucks and hides into the side of the mountain, seeing all but not being seen. Most locals have no idea anything is up here.
The tree house feel of the cabin yet a fabulous view. Enough wildlife sharing the woods here to maintain hope. My favorite pastime is sitting out front at dusk with a glass of wine listening to the wild turkeys roost for the night. And waking up to the song of the wood thrush and occasional loon ain't bad either.
Hinckley Lake, just 100 yards down the hill, is in on the edge of the beautiful and historic Adirondack mountains. The lake offers swimming and kayaking, rentals right next door! The Adirondack hiking trails are wonderful, especially in the fall. Biking is also excellent. In winter, access to the cabin gets a bit more interesting as the last 100 feet of road is fairly steep. The historic little town of Barneveld is 10 minutes away and here you can rent a DVD, shop the farmers or Amish markets in season or travel the roads and sight see, the vistas are grand. If you happen to be here for Remsen's 'Barnfest', that has evolved into a very successful and well thought out craft fair. In summer the area abounds with local field days.
