Description from owner
Secluded, mountain-top cabin with long western views on 29 wooded acres for your Finger Lakes vacation getaway, race weekend or hunting retreat. Though located in relative seclusion in the Sugar Hill area of the Finger Lakes, the cabin is centrally located to many Finger Lakes attractions. The cabin lies midway between Watkins Glen, NY & Hammondsport, NY and the Seneca Lake and Keuka Lake wine trails. About 5 minutes away are Waneta and Lamoka Lakes. Within 15 minutes are the the Watkins Glen International Raceway and Windmill Farm & Craft Market. Corning, NY and the Corning Museum of Glass are within 25 minutes.
This property does not have a booking fee.
Across the road from the property is 2,000 acres of State Forest land and the Oneida trailhead (hiking, horseback riding, and snowmobile trail) which links in with the Finger Lakes Trail about 1 mile away. Minutes away is the 9,000 acre Sugar Hill Recreation Area and fire tower. Enjoy the quiet, wooded-setting as you watch the spectacular sunsets or enjoy the evenings stars as you sit around a camp fire.
The cabin will sleep 4-7 people with two separate bedrooms (a queen bed in one bedroom and a full & single in the other) and a sleeping porch with a double futon. This is a year-round property with a full kitchen, bathroom, and washer/dryer. Dogs are welcome with the owner's prior approval. If you are interested in bringing your dog, check with the owner when reserving (two dogs allowed per guest). There is a $10/night fee per pet ($50/week).
There is good fishing in nearby Lamoka & Waneta Lakes for muskie, large and smallmouth bass, chain pickerel, crappie, and perch.

“Excellent Hunting Getaway”
Spent a great mens week hunting the local state land. Everyone saw deer but were unable to connect. The cabin had all the amenities for a semi rustic experience. The host John was very helpful with local information in regard to hunting areas and activities for all seasons.
“Beautiful cabin, Nice trails.”
a few things. Order in cabin was like a wet basement. Refrigerator didn't work very well. Nice property to run for my dogs. We all had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing your cabin.
“Hunter’s view cabin in NY.”
We had a few little kinks to work out through out our stay with the cabin, but overall we enjoyed our stay. The cabin was comfortable.
The initial excitement over staying in this place was gone the very next minute we all stepped in... The reason - mold...!!!!! We expected all sort of crawling creatures ,hot temperatures,darkness ,etc.- but not MOLD. The one thing , we as a family can not accept is somebody renting to us a health hazardous place! Our kids had a running noses and were coughing very next day... We were all anxious to end this vacation ASAP becouse we were not comfortable sleeping in the cabin. By the way this cabin is cute- but that does not do justice to the problem!!!!!!
Response from the owner After reaching out to the guest he indicated there was mold in the crawl space below the cabin. I had this inspected by a professional mold removal company. They informed me there was mold in the crawl space, but also indicated the mold was not bad or widespread and was pretty much confined to a number of spots on the concrete walls. They assured me the structure of the house was not compromised by any mold or a health hazard. It was limited to the crawl space. I had the same company professionally clean the crawl space and apply an anti-microbial agent to the entire crawl space area. On another note: the guest did not contact me while he was staying at my cabin. I did not know he encountered a problem until I read his review. I was therefore unable to try and rectify the situation for the guest while he was staying there.
“Beautiful cabin for relaxing”
Hunter's View is a great place to get away from it all. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to go book if you are looking for a peaceful place to relax and get away from the hustle & bustle of city life. Located near state parks, lakes, etc. if you want to do things for just hang at the cabin and relax. My dog loved it and didn't want to get back in to the car to go home. I can't find anything to criticize. John the owner was great to work with and will address any questions. Nice guy. Can't wait to go back next year.
Response from the owner Sheila. Thanks for the review. I'm so glad you and your dog had a nice time. John
“More than just a view - !!”
Celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in the Finger Lakes area was capped off with more than just a view - it gave us a place to reconnect and enjoy all the things this wonderful destination has to offer. Mr. Boselli was right on target with his suggestions of where to go, what to eat and see as well as providing an extremely comfortable and very clean cabin. Every day was a new adventure and if we needed additional suggestions there were plenty of brochures available. Corning Museum of Glass, Kozy Korner and The Village Tavern in Hammondsport should all be on your To-Do list as well as Finger Lakes Distillery. Wegmans grocery is close enough to allow you to make things at the cabin with a wonderful fresh variety of you name it they have it. Renting this for our trip was effortless with the guidance, cooperation and professionalism of Mr. Boselli. Constant contact during the rental agreement phase made this a no hassle event. There are plenty of fishing charters available around the surrounding lakes; however, ours was cancelled due to heavy rains and high water levels - but this did not dampen our trip. We have been asked many times if we would ever go back - and the quick and true short answer is ABSOLUTELY. The one thing we would warn anyone about is - please be prepared to use a lower gear as your drive through the mountain areas - the roads are steeper than they first appear. This cabin is more than just a view - but what a view it is ! It never got old and we have plenty of pictures to share with friends and family. Please do yourself a favor and if you are at least interested in making this a possible destination in your future - you will not be disappointed. Bravo Mr. Boselli and Thank you !! Can't wait til next time.
“Fantastic Vacation Accommodations”
We come bace to the area every year to visit family and friends. This is the first year we have not had Dad's house to go to. I found this cabin doing a simple search and I cannot say enough good things about it from the reservation process to check in to the stay. The only sad part was leaving! John was fantastic in getting back to me quickly and the booking process was so easy! Upon arrival we were a little apprehensive because you just never know based on pictures, but we were so very pleasantly surprised. This cabin is in the perfect setting, it is clean and well stocked. The location is so close to everything that we did not have to waste a lot of time traveling from one location to another; although we were quite content to hang out on the enclosed front porch or by the fire! We are already planning our return trip for next summer and will be making our reservations real soon! Thank you to John and Lisa for such a wonderful location and accommodations! Anything positive in these other reviews is certainly true and so much more. And by the way, I can be very picky!!

IT IS WORTH IT!!!! just explore. peaceful. relaxing. omg. the dogs are burnt out. best time EVER!!! THANK YOU JOHN!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOK THIS PLACE!
I rented this place with three college friends for our annual reunion. My one regret is that we only stayed 3 nights; we could have spent twice that to take advantage of everything in the region. The cabin is compact, but the open layout of the kitchen and living room was really conducive to hanging out and relaxing. All the appliances worked well, and the kitchen had most everything we needed to prepare meals. Between the bedrooms and the futon on the porch, it slept four easily. Most important, the place was extremely clean, and the shower had plenty of pressure and hot water; what more could four women want! All of my dealings with the owner were by email, but he was very responsive and made sure we had directions and everything else we needed to get to and into the cabin. He also provided great suggestions for restaurants, wineries, and other local attractions. While not in a touristy area, the location was central to many Finger Lake attractions. It was about 20 minutes to Watkins Glen or Corning, a little longer than that to the wine regions, and less than an hour to Ithaca. All in all, it was a nice place to come home to after a day of hiking, sightseeing, or shopping.
“Quiet, peaceful cabin”
Just spent a week here with two dogs. Cabin was great - in really good shape. Incredibly quiet and peaceful-quietest place I've ever been even quieter than the remote wilderness backpacks I've been on. Good places to hike right around the cabin and the way the cabin was buffered from the road by woods around it allowed us to let the dogs roam free in the front yard. Conveniently located for going to all of the Finger Lakes attractions.
