Other things to note

My favorite feature of the cabin is it's stone fire place. If you're comfortable starting and tending the fire, please enjoy! You'll notice fire wood located on a rack outside of the main entrance and inside next to the fireplace along with fire starters. There's also a fire pit and grill on the deck for your enjoyment, but maybe it's too cold. You'll have to supply lighter fluid and charcoal.

There's a gravel area for parking at the entrance of the driveway. The path leading closer to the house is steep with gravel and rocks, so be cautious. For your convenience and safety, please do not bring vehicles down this path.

Also, there is a skeet shooting range near the house. You'll hear light sounds during the day.

It's amazing that you can find such rustic beauty so close to the city. John has seen to every detail in his cozy cabin and surrounding greenery. Guests get to experience real nature with the comforts of home. We came with two small children, and they loved it, too. We hope to return!

Had a quiet girls trip over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed staying at this quaint and cozy cabin in the woods. We had forgotten a few cooking supplies and the kitchen was fully stocked and full. The patio was quite lovely throughout, from morning to evening. The hammock was a nice touch as well! Really enjoyed our stay and would most definitely come again!

John has a gem of a cabin in Chappaqua. It's only a 10 minute cab ride from the train station but you immediately feel far from all your worries. The space is magical while still affording you the modern essentials like wifi and Apple TV. Be sure to swing away any stress in the hammock while watching rabbits graze in the backyard. John was long distance during our stay yet was quick to respond to any questions I had. I can't wait to stay again!

John's place was great. The cabin was clean and well-stocked. John communicated with us well and was a great host. We'd definitely go again.

Despite being just a one-hour drive from Manhattan, this place is so secluded that we drove past the house at first! My partner and I loved how quiet and cozy it was, while still being about a 15 minute drive from everything we wanted to do—eat out, get groceries, go on a hike through a nature preserve, and so on. This is a perfect weekend getaway spot—my only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer.

Response from John:
So sorry about the apple tv. I've had the same problem off and on, and it sometimes shuts down during a movie. It's old, so it needs to be replaced. Thank you for letting me know.

We stayed a John's cabin to go to the Clearwater Music Festival in Croton-on-Hudson. It was the perfect spot: clean, cozy, peaceful and convenient to the festival. It was a great place to come home to after a long day of listening to music by the Hudson River. A wonderful weekend all the way around. I'd recommend it to anyone!
