Cabin Clack is a cozy, stream-side retreat bordering miles of beautiful trails in host-maintained Clapper Hollow State Forest.
The area is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities and also offers great thrifting, plentiful farm stands, and horseback riding.
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 (no leashes needed).
The space is a 1-room cabin with queen bed, full kitchenette, vintage free-standing tub and Vermont Castings wood-burning stove. The back porch overlooks a lively little stream with magnificent views of the changing leaves - and a hibachi if you feel like grilling some farm-fresh goodies during your stay.
The entire cabin is yours to call home during your stay, and you are free to explore our 100 acre property and adjacent 900 acre Clapper Hollow State Forest. We are DEC Stewards of the forest and have made and maintain our own trail maps, which we would be happy to share with you - just ask!
If you would like to branch out and explore the area, Windham and Plattekill ski areas are within an hour's drive, as are cultural attractions like the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, Brewery Ommegang, the Farmer's Museum, and Fenimore Art Museum, Howes Cavern and Secret Cavern.
We live across the road and are available to answer any questions you might have about the area.
We can supply you with snowshoes and ski poles for exploring. Bring your own equipment for Xcountry skiing around the property, or go downhill skiing at Plattekill or Windham. Skating rink is free on the Jefferson village green.
There are apple trees all around and guests are welcome to collect them and to use our apple press to make their own cider.
There is no cell reception or wi-fi at the Cabin - so be prepared to truly unplug!
- There are 2 mattresses in the sleeping loft that can be used to accomodate additional guests. The sleeping loft can be great fun for children, but is only accessible by ladder (as shown in the pictures), and could be a hazard for younger children.
