A Private Pond
The Cabin is a few steps from a spring-fed 3/4 acre private pond. The pond is a great place to enjoy the sun on a hot day, go for an afternoon swim or do some recreational, catch and return fishing. A rowboat is provided. The grassy banks of the pond provide safe and easy entry into the water for young children and a lovely screened gazebo graces the far shore.

Lots to Do Nearby

From the cabin, it is a pleasant hike or a short drive to a waterfall at Pikes Falls, a beautiful rocky place for diving, sun bathing or hiking as well as a cool dip. The water is very cold even in the late August.  Watch a video of Pikes Falls. On the backside of the property is Styles brook which runs down from Stratton Mountain.  Watch a video about Styles Brook.
