Overview

About the property

Private Cabin, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, on 10 secluded wooded acres. Experience it!!

20 MINUTES FROM LETCHWORTH STATE PARK!!!

Note: January 1 - March 31, we recommend 4WD or AWD vehicles only. Depending on snow conditions, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to drive your vehicle closer than 200 ft to the cabin due to snow depths and the road plows filling in the driveway entrance (we don't plow the driveway due to significant damage in previous yrs).

Winter is a special time at the Cozy Cabin though! The trails are generally passable with hundreds of tracks (deer, fox, raccoon and others) crisscrossing the landscape. The Hemlock area when it’s covered with snow is about as quiet as you can get.

* Winter No Worry Guarantee: In the event of extreme winter weather that makes roads impassible, we will provide you with a full refund, including fees.

Driveway not plowed in winter. Park on the road and walk up the driveway 200' to the cabin.

About The Owner

Bob and I (Peg) are a clean, neat, professional, energetic, fun loving couple who enjoy hiking high peaks, traveling and meeting new friends. We do not watch TV on a regular basis. We prefer pursing our passions - which include all sorts of travel, adventure and exploring new areas. We benefit from sitting on our deck with a drink in the Summer; or sitting in front of the inside fireplace in the Winter.

Bob owns his own business, The Opportunity Group. He's an Organizational Coach, where he transforms Managers into Leaders. He also writes romance/mystery novels [samples at the townhouse]. Peg is in charge of Stakeholder Services at the Opportunity Group, and volunteers at the local hospice.

For readers, you may find it interesting to note that much of Bob's Fantasy/Romance novel; JOURNEY, The Love Story of the Century, Part II was written in the cabin. Pictures of the trail from the cabin also appear in Part II. When you sit by the campfire, you will be sharing the same view that inspired some pretty interesting stories. The books may be found on Amazon. To find the books, Google 'Catlan Samuels Journey' (that is Bob's pen name). Part III of the trilogy is under way.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Dalton

We very much enjoy the woods and getting off the grid as much as our busy schedules will allow.

When we are not there, we love to share the cabin with guests, who have a passion for peacefulness, birds, woods, nature and non-human noises.

Even though you are 20 minutes away from most anything, yet you feel like you are in the middle of no where.

Inside the cabin, being surrounded by knotty pine, is almost like camping outside with the luxury of a hot shower at your fingertips.

The easy forest trails allow for a casual back to nature experience, or for the more experienced hiker, the 5 mile hike around the block might suit your needs.

What makes this cabin unique

Cozy Cabin is the perfect spot for couples who want a completely secluded, romantic getaway where no one will find them, but it's also great for families who want to enjoy a woods experience with modern amenities! When guests are ready to come out of the forest, there is so much to see and do all within 15-20 minutes: Letchworth State Park, Stonybrook State Park, Swain Mountain Ski Resort, the Mount Morris Dam, and 7,700 acres of NYS Wildlife Management/wilderness Area to explore! Six Flags Darien Lake is 45 minutes away, and Niagara Falls is just over an hour and a half drive!

Secluded Beautiful Updated Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Peg thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cabin. I can't say enough on how well kept and up to date the cabin was. Everything was better than we had imagined. Look forward to staying here again in the future. The handmade Jenga game was a awesome touch!

The Perfect Getaway In A Hedge of Woods!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the Cozy Cottage for a week in November. It Is everything the pictures show and is as charming as others have said. We were thrilled to pull in and see the long driveway with the cabin nestled back against the trees. Even though it was fall the lawn and grounds were very well kept for our arrival. The cabin has everything you need. My wife was thrilled to find everything she needed in the kitchen AND that everything was clean upon our arrival. We have stayed at other cottages in the area and she was so pleased to find she didn’t have to rewash things. The cabin is charming inside....we loved the knotty pine intererior And the coziness of the loft also. One of the most important things while being on vacation is a comfortable bed and this place has it and we slept great. One unique aspect of the cabin is the walking trails out back. My wife enjoyed walking them daily and took some great pictures of princess pine converted with snow! Peggy is very good at answering any questions we had and was quick in responding. We have already re-booked for next year!

Most excellent camping experience

  • 5 of 5

We have done a lot of camping and glamping lately and this was by far the nicest cabin so far. Not only was it clean and modern, it was complete down even to the fire starter at the fire pit. The beds were comfy, the bathroom amazing, and the kitchen was nicer than my own. I loved the trails around the property. It was secluded but near so many cute little towns, and of course Letchworth. I would recommend it to anyone without a doubt they would love it too.

Off the grid and perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a couple to stay. The owners, Peg and Bob were very helpful and great to work with and has thought of everything to make your stay perfect from outside lawn games to needed supplies in the kitchen and throughout the cabin. The kitchen was fully stocked. It's in a very relaxing setting. The woods are great and the easy hiking trails are entertaining. We enjoyed hiking, the bonfire, swinging on the swings and relaxing together. Niagara Falls is just an 1.5 hour drive and made for a great day trip. This was one of the best vacation cabins we have ever been to with everything you need, and we especially loved the front porch for coffee in the morning. We will come again!!! BTW, the cabin was spotless!!!

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!!

Owner's Response: Bob and his wife were perfect guests!! They let us know when they were arriving and also when they checked out. We do appreciate that so much because it helps with the scheduling. They left the cabin as they found it. We can't ask for anything more!! Please come back for a return visit. Peg and Bob

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. It was wonderful meeting Harlen and Linda and wish we could have spent more time with them. Now Harlen and Linda have come to know what we appreciate most about our own time spent out there in our private forest... there is nobody else around! Just you and the people you invited to be there with you... Perfect! Glad they came, and we're also glad we could give them the experience we enjoy so much ourselves. They left the cabin in perfect condition and even left us a gift of a book, which we are anxious to read!! Please come again, anytime!! Peg & Bob
