Escape to This Woodsy Glass Cabin Only 2.5 Hours From NYC

New, 2 comments


Set on six secluded acres in the Hudson Valley, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath cabin in the woods serves as an urban retreat for New York City residents architect/owner Adam Rolston and partner Martin McElhiney. And for city dwellers looking for a slice of the mountains less than 3 hours from home, Rolston has also listed the design-driven cabin on Airbnb for $250 per night. Built in a picturesque fern forest and featured in the British House and Garden Magazine in 2011, the 1,350-square-foot structure was built to maximize views, with windows and glazed glass on two long sides. A single room for living, dining, and cooking centers the building with bedrooms flanking the great room for privacy. In total, the vacation house boasts 16 doors, bringing new meaning to the indoor/outdoor concept. Just don't come looking for nightlife; the cabin has a steep driveway (all or four wheel drive is a must) and is located 20 minutes from the nearest town. But if quiet seclusion amidst gorgeous design is what's needed, this updated take on the classic cabin fits the bill.
