This hand built cabin is situated privately on 50 acres of pine woods in the Adirondack foothills. The cabin features a hot rainwater shower and sink; solar electricity for lighting, safety and charging electronics; and a wood-burning stove.

Named Mountain Laurel, the cabin is situated at the top of a hill, with beautiful shade trees, cool breezes and a great view of the pine woods. It features a queen size bed in the main living area and a full size bed in the loft. A dining area is on the main floor along with a wood burning stove with a screen that can function as a fireplace. Experience cool breezes all summer long on the full-size porch. The catwalk off the loft leads you to a balcony with a beautiful ten-mile view. We are located close to access points for ATV and Snowmobile trails. Numerous lakes are a short drive away for kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing in the summer. In the winter, enjoy cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, hiking and snowmobiling. Snow Ridge, which boasts the first snow of the season, is thirty minutes away. Please email for detailed directions to cabin after reserving.

After building tree forts in the woods behind his house as a young boy, my husband Rick decided one day he would build his own cabin. Mountain Laurel is the result of this dream. Hand built from the trees on the property, the cabin is situated privately on 50 acres of pine woods.
owners/property manager purchased this cabin in 2010
We loved this property as soon as we saw it. The sweet smell of pine greets you and the soft moss on the ground makes hiking on the property ideal.
Situated privately on fifty acres of pine woods, with your own spot of peaceful quiet, the cabin is unique. From the porch you can sip tea or coffee and listen to the birds greet the morning. From the balcony, you can see for ten miles. If it's a quiet get-away you're looking for, you've found it!
Great place, and managed to keep warm during a pretty cold season. Owners went above and beyond in making sure our stay was enjoyable.
The cabin is great. Everything was all ready for us. I would recommend bringing a flashlight for the nighttime walk to the bathroom. Very private property. Nice people in town. Definitely recommend the trip and the beach at the campgrounds down Soft Maple road.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Its definitely an adjustment to live by firelight and rainwater, but it was one well worth making. The cabin is so cute, with a treehouse feeling. The beds were comfy. There are lots of little touches, many of them involving silver birch twigs, that just made the whole experience so very delightful. We have an 8 year old who loves TV and gaming and she had a great time walking the grounds, building in the sand, discovering a good book, building camp fires and making smores.
This cabin and the surrounding property are lovely. I wanted a quiet weekend getaway for myself out in the woods, and this cabin perfectly fit the bill and then some.
The cabin itself is an amazing example of off the grid comfort- solar electricity for light, a catchment system for heated rainwater showers and hand washing, a propane cooktop for coffee and eggs in the morning, and a neat little outhouse just a few steps away. This is glamping for me! The cabin interior was clean and free of bugs- perfectly cozy.
The pine woods surrounding the cabin are just beautiful. It has a soft spongy forest floor, and not much scratchy undergrowth, courtesy of the majestic pines. The fragrance of a pine forest is a wonderful way to wake up.
I was content to spend most of my time on the porch reading, observing, and listening.
I will definitely return with my husband at a later date, and perhaps another couple to enjoy another weekend among the pines.
Rick and Maria were absolutely wonderful hosts...Everything was perfect when we arrived...They answered any questions I had promptly and thoroughly...The cabin and the land surrounding could not have been nicer....We will definitely be returning again!!!! Wonderful!!!
There are many lakes a short distance drive from us for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming. In the winter Snow Ridge Ski Resort is known for the first snow of the season in NY. It's 25 minutes away from us. For snowmobilers, we are in a wonderful secluded location. You can ride through the mountains to Stillwater, Old Forge and Tug Hill.
