We are only two and a half hours north of New York City but worlds away from the noise and traffic.  What a perfect place to get away for two nights or more ~ even during the week  ~ to steal away for an amazing peaceful break.   Come stay at our cabin, you won't regret the feeling of renewal by stepping away from it all.  Perhaps,

if we do not take the opportunity to "UN-PLUG" from our technology from time to time, we will miss the
true beauty of living....


Please be aware and REMIND whoever smokes that if they smoke in the cabin that there will be an additional $150 charge for cleaning as a result of the overwhelming smell of cigarettes. 

I am sorry but I suffer from asthma and I am extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke.  Plain and simple, it stinks and it is not polite for those guests that come in after a smoker. 

If whoever smokes does actually smoke on the porch, please be far enough away from the doors and windows as not to drift into the cabin. 

I have done a bit of research and some places of lodging charge upwards of $250 - $500 so please be polite and remember that WE DO NOT ALLOW SMOKING IN THE CABIN!  

Thank you, the management.
