Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Cabin Clack is a cozy, stream-side retreat bordering 1000 acres of wild trails in host-maintained Clapper Hollow State Forest.

The area is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities and also offers plentiful organic farm stands in growing season.
The cabin is good for a couple, solo adventurers, or families (with kids). We welcome pets, and they will love exploring the countryside and the freedom of our virtually traffic-free dead-end road.

The space
The space is a 1-room cabin with full bed, kitchenette with microwave, electric stove, toaster and mini fridge. Vintage free-standing tub and Vermont Castings wood-burning stove. The back porch overlooks a lively little stream and a hibachi if you feel like grilling. There is a free standing outdoor fire pit with plenty of firewood to make a campfire at night. A great place for star gazing.

The cabin is on 100 acres owned by the hosts. Next to the 100 acres is 900 acres of State Land. The terrain is mountainous with rocks, very old stone walls, springs and a brook right in front of the cabin. The nearest supermarket is 1/2 hr.away so best to go shopping before arrival.
