Our modern log home is set up with fine things like Turkish towels, local artisan soaps & the softest sheets. The tasteful decor has an mcm vibe w/industrial touches. Wander outdoors, swim, follow a creek, slip into the forest, hike back, cook dinner in a state of the art kitchen w/ a pantry full of fun gadgets. Relax by the fireplace, sit outside & watch the stars, light a fire. We provide blankets & wood. A welcome basket & a fully stocked coffee bar for the early mornings are waiting for you.

The space
If you’re looking for solitude, plenty of outdoor nature and refined indoors you have found it. Our property was a former fish farm with over 25 ponds that spans over 15 acres with a gushing creek that runs thru the entire property and leads directly into the forest land. We have 1 marked swimming pond and dock running with fresh spring water and one with dock and 2 small kayak ( seasonal) you can use at your own risk. Our property abuts the state forest behind us providing endless opportunities to wander right in, walk or jog, run or hike the trails, fish in the Spring, Summer and hunt in the Fall or during Winter ski trail. This property is truly magical and here you can hear the birds singing in the morning , spot the wild turkeys crossing, white tail deers scouting on the higher hill, our geese family that lives on one of the upper ponds, otters and blue herons that love to eat our fish, our woodchuck friend that lives nearby, and bald eagles flying high. At night the peeper toads will serenade you during the Summer months. You can follow the trail to the creek, walk around the pond paths, find a rainbow after the rain, hang in a hammock amongst the woods, read a book under an apple tree, swing away your worries or relax in front of the babbling creek, lay a blanket and plan a picnic (simple planning ~ French basket in pantry, bring bread, cheese and wine) , or serve breakfast in bed with a fancy leather tray, smell the towering hardwoods in our mini forest or pick fresh wildflowers for your hair. Pack the snowshoes and skis in the Winter and enjoy a quick ride to one of the four skiing resorts that are close by or walk into our winter wonderland full of sprouting Christmas pine trees and mighty oaks. Summer months take your shoes off and walk on the calming moss and fern fields. Cold nights sit indoors next to one of the three gas fireplaces and watch the snow fall. Our everyday dishes are white Lenox. Make waffles in our fancy waffle maker, toaster, coffee maker and grinder by SMEG, bake cookies for the hike or cook in our beautiful kitchen with All clad pots and pans, double oven and fancy leather stools for a quick meal. Our large rustic dining room from Restoration Hardware seats 8 and we encourage you to set the table and uncork some wine. We have beautiful French dishes in gray tones from Williams Sonoma and fine wine glasses from Crate and Barrel. Load the dishwasher after dinner and wander outside. Smell the fresh air. We have a wood bar cabinet (you bring the goodies ) with all the gadgets you need to make drinks or uncork a wine bottle.

Our Bedrooms are comfortable for up to 8 as a maximum capacity ( sometimes we make exceptions but with an extra charge for 2 additional guests) and are outfitted with custom Irish linen sheets or for winter flannel sheets, comfy pillows and Leesa deep mattresses. Night tables have custom leather catch all to hold your small items and beautiful lamps that complement the rooms. Each one brings the outdoor in with live green plants and the carefully curated art and artifacts displayed thru out the home ties it all in. The Living room has an alluring leather couch, tv, a spotty WiFi, Alexa on command, a fine collection of vinyl and a record player to remind you of the good times. Make more .

The deck area has sitting, bistro lights, a pretty sun umbrella ( seasonal) a top of the line Weber barbecue and a red Preway chimenea for enjoying more of the outdoors. Make s’mores or play one of our many board games . Waking up in the MBR is like waking up in a tree house. Pull the soft curtains and watch the sunrise. Watch the stars from the skylight. Sleep in or watch the misty trees and fog rising amongst the woods from the deck. Walk the custom made trail lined with wildflowers during the Spring season or go deeper in. Bring a yoga mat and face the sun in the roundabout or watch the wildlife from the many windows and as the sun sets soak in the tub with custom soaps and bath salts in the largest glass container you have ever seen. Wrap yourself in the softest cotton towels, hang in the bath robes for a while, grab a book from an amazing selection from one of the tables or book shelf, sit back, breathe deep. Take it all in.

Whatever you decide to do : stay in, explore the town, play outside, celebrate little moments or perhaps big ones, work from the lodge, care for yourself, seek nature or create memories ~ We promise an unforgettable and refreshing experience and guarantee you will enjoy your stay in this little piece of Paradise we have created to share with you.

Where you’ll be

Jefferson, New York, United States

Our property is located in a rural part of NY and is surrounded by the State Forest Clapper Hollow for the adventurer and the outdoorsy. For the indoor type we suggest to throw down in our fancy kitchen with All Clad pots and pans and all kinds of dishes, bowls, fancy flatware from West Elm, pretty glassware from Crate and Barrel and the best and super SHARP German knives set. The walk in pantry is outfitted with fun gadgets. There’s a local market for last minute items within 5 minutes for coffee, milk, beer, extra ice, ice cream, extra paper goods ( some people need a lot) We encourage a quick stop before arriving at the local cheese place, the liquor store and for a ride around town brunch at the Breakfast Club and for a quick late lunch the HeartBreak Hotel pub style or Mill Pond Inn for a nice outdoor dinner with live music on some weekends.
