Winter Log Cabin Getaways in Upstate New York

by Josephine Wawira

Log cabins have a natural way of creating a living fantasy, and while we may not have this at our traditional concrete structured homes, we can always flee to a fantastic log cabin and live the fantasy for some time, can’t we? During the winter, the wood – unlike other construction material – protects from the extreme cold weather and provides a healthy, comfortable, and cozy getaway, from its natural insulating property keeping the inner environment warmer. This is not to mention the energy consumption benefits of log cabins, saving approximately 30% of energy due to less use of heaters. This ensures that as a traveler who chooses to stay at the winter log cabins, you duly contribute towards the UNWTO’s Responsible Travel campaign of Travel.Enjoy.Respect! Here are 5 accommodations in NYC that guarantee a memorable vacation.

Charming Private Cabin in Charley Lake

Situated right on Charley Lake, this charming and private log cabin is a serene getaway for two to six people. The three bedrooms are equipped with four beds, with an open loft bedroom with a queen-sized mattress upstairs. This cabin has a Weber charcoal grill and a fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare your favorite meals. Enjoy high-speed internet and a landline will be provided. When the weather does not allow for outdoor activities, relax and Netflix while sipping your hot chocolate. The quiet and charming views of the surrounding makes the cabin a great choice for a peaceful experience. The spring-fed mountaintop lake is clean, refreshing, and perfect for a swim, kayak, canoe, or paddle board especially in the spring and fall; since it tends to warm up quicker (and stay warmer longer) than most. Unwind in the wood-fired steam sauna, fish off the dock, BBQ up dinner, then stargaze and share stories by the fire pit.
