Rustic Log Cabins
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed at the Rustic Log Cabins 10/13-10/15, 2012. The cabins are exactly the way they're pictured on the website-which is good-no major surprises. The first night we stayed-it was 19 degrees at night-very cold. We had a fireplace in our cabin, but there's no damper to keep in the heat-so we lost a bit of radiant heat-but still worthwhile-and lovely to watch! The cabins are on site at the Leindenfrost Winery. It's nice to stay someplace that's family owned. The pictures and decor in the cabin are period appropriate, and was topic of conversation during our trip. There was an electric heater in the cabin-which helped, but would not be enough to keep it warm without the fireplace roaring! The fridge is kitchen size-plenty of room in it for food. The stove is propane gas-we cooked warm breakfast over it-yummy! Do bring bed linens and pots & pans, wood for heat, and anything else to make yourself cozy-it's not provided. The bathhouse is not far, but it's not heated-so bring warm clothes-it was a bit annoying-but wouldn't keep us from coming back. The hunters who stayed in the cabin next to us put electric heaters in the mens' room-the women's doesn't seem to have an electrical outlet-if you find it-kudos to you! If you're looking to rough it, this is your place! It's charming, and we really enjoyed ourselves.

P.S. Jackie is the owner, very nice-didn't see her except when we had already checked in. I'm sure if there was a problem, she'd be right there-but she didn't make herself a presence.

My husband and I stayed in one of the smaller cabins a few years go with our Doberman. It was quite an experence and very enjoyable. It's a short drive to Walkins Glen, shopping, and wineries. You can walk to Seneca Lake from the cabins which is what we did every day. You can also cross the road to a small store for food items,etc. The cabin had a mini fridge and microwave but no plates etc so you can bring paper plates which are easy to dispose of . Also bring a flashlight as the centrally located bathroom and showers are situated a short distance away in the middle of the 4 cabins and it's dark at night.Our cabin had a picnic table with chairs and a BBQ grill right outside the door so it was great to sit outside and grill in the evening. A very relaxing vacation and our hostess Jackie was very nice.

We stayed at the Rustic Log Cabins in July, 2010, while attending the Grapehound Wine Tour. The cabins are easy to locate, right next to Leidenfrost Vineyards. There are a total of 4 cabins, we stayed in one of the bigger ones, as it was available--and it was huge for our needs. Two larger size beds and one twin bed--we were traveling with 2 Greyhounds, and they enjoyed being able to spread out. The cabin has a refrigerator, a microwave, but no kitchenware like plates/utensils/pots...so remember to come equipped. There is no running water in the cabins, but a centrally located bath house is not far from any of the cabins. We brought a water jug for convenience. There is road noise, as these cabins are close to the road, but we find that soothing. It's not a far walk, just across the street--but you must go on a very, very fast busy road--to the Hazlett Winery as well. The village of Watkins Glen was not far, and there were some convenience shops even closer. Our hostess, Jackie, was wonderful and helped us feel very at home. We definitely plan to return!!
