An amazing adventure!

We loved it!!!! We can't thank Peter and Bernadette enough for opening up their family treasure to our family after a very scary Hurricane Irene! They were so nice and flexible and allowed us to change our reservation due to power outages and closed roads in our area. Then on the day we planned on coming to the cabin, Peter alerted us that the cabin too, had no power! We decided it was time for an adventure and went anyway. We arrived in total darkness and used candles and lanterns for the night. We awoke to streams of sunlight and by late evening the power returned! What started out as an unsettling week, turned into a great, fun adventure that our family will never forget. This adorable, well kept, and well equipped log cabin is truly a different and welcome change to the hotel room or B&B. AND...It's not everyday that you come across such gracious and accomodating hosts. You feel like you've known the owners your whole life, yet you may never meet in person!!!
The cabin, is in a rural setting; yet surprisingly it is well situated -- a short scenic drive to Cooperstown, which was our main reason for going up that way -- 3o minutes to Howe Caverns and the new zip line/rope course -- amazing for kids of all ages! There is so much to do, yet all you secretly want to do is cook out over the fire pit, or over charcoals, read a book on the porch swing, go exploring in the woods, or fish on the nearby pond! It is tucked away up on a mountain on beautiful wooded property. All you hear are the sounds of a peaceful stream just steps away, chirping birds, and the occasional crow from a rooster! We thought it was the neighbor's dogs, but in fact, it was a good ole cock-a-doodle-do. Our family of four -- two boys ages 11 and 9 -- had plenty of room. The boys loved the loft space which have double beds. The bedroom - queen bed - on the main floor is really nice. There is direct TV in bedroom and in living room for those who can't hold out. Simple and nice jacuzzi tub and shower! Owner will tell you what to bring, but it's not much more than some sheet sets and towels. Peter has a shed out back with fun stuff -- fishing rods,etc! All in all, we had a wonderful time reacquainting ourselves with nature and teaching our boys what life should be like sometimes. When you go, make sure to sign the guest log. And if you are anything like me, you may find yourself up until 1am reading about all the other cabin adventures. Can't wait to go back.
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: It sounds like you should be thinking of a little log cabin of your own (bucket list?). You’re reminding us why we're so grateful to have the cabin and happy that others get to experience that ‘something magical’ that happens there and why we call the log cabin ‘A Sweet Memory.” I have no doubt that so much of the enjoyable time that you had is because of the spirit of adventure that your family brought to the cabin. It was a pleasure getting to know you.
Peter and Bernadette
