Linens, cooking and eating utensils, Cable TV, cable modem for high-speed internet access, and DVD, make Pine Hill Cabin a rustic and relaxing home away from home. Seasonal chills are kept out with a hot air furnace.
All you need to bring with you are clothes, food, ski gear, hiking gear or fishing poles. campfire near the barbecue in the back yard provides a great place for the family to gather in the evening, to review the day’s activities, have a family sing-along, or just to listen to the waters of the stream, while counting the stars in the clear Adirondack skies, and inhaling the fragrance of the pines which enclose the yard.
