This is a beautiful, two room B&B, off the beaten path in the cool, quiet Leyden, MA countryside. It would be a treat for anyone, not just those like me who are trying to learn a bit of local history. The bed was extremely comfortable and was equipped with one of those supportive pillows that allowed me to sit up and read. Our hostess was wonderful, helpful and informative. And, it was a pleasure to chat with her the other guests. Our visit left us with a glow that stayed with us for the rest of our journey.
The Log Cabin is a truly unique and wonderful place; remote, serene, warm and beautiful. The great room is perfect for sipping coffee and reading by the fire as the snow falls. The bedrooms were private and very well designed. In fact, you can tell a lot of thought went into designing the entire space. The bed in the room was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept, prompting Kathie to disclose where she got it (locally of course) so that I could possibly buy one for myself. Breakfast was flexible and delicious and there is plenty of fine dining just a short drive away (The Farm Table at Kringle Candle). All in all, it was a magical weekend getaway for my lady and me.
My wife and I had been given a gift certificate to a bed and breakfast for one night, we looked at a bunch of them but most were all older houses/fancier houses which we are laid back people so it didnt suit us, we came across The Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast and loved it! We were warmly greeted when we arrived and Kathie had the perfect mix of being hospitable but giving us our alone time. Everything was new and in good condition and living quarters were kept very warm. The Sheep in the backyard was and extra cool feature. She made us a excellent breakfast which was well rounded nutritionally and very tasty. I and my family will be staying there again for sure!
So happy that we discovered The Log Cabin! One of the most relaxing getaway's we have had in years. Many thanks to Kathie (and the gang listed above) for such a wonderful and romantic stay!
We spent one night at the Log Cabin and it was perfect. It's a perfect, secluded getaway. The room is comfortable and roomy. The bathroom is modern. Even the sheep in the back yard are fun! I would highly recommend staying here.
Kathie was an incredible host! The place is very charming with cozy rooms and a pleasant sit-in area. The sheep in back make for some interesting conversation and some company when you're enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. It's a little off the beaten path which makes for a really idyllic stay but it's also just a short drive to Brattleboro and other outdoor activities. We went in late April, which is what I guess the locals call "mud season" but it was still really pleasant and when there wasn't a lot to do, our hosts made amazing breakfasts and Brattleboro's eateries and breweries were INCREDIBLE. We at the the Mill Stone 5 times in 2 days. We will certainly be returning for another stay.
We had a lovely one night stay earlier this month. We loved the secluded location and the beautiful log home. We "slept like a log" in the comfortable bed. Breakfast was fresh, all homemade and so delicious! Kathie really made us feel at home. We wished we had more time to enjoy the common room and walk the area.
This was our first B&B experience and we loved it. We were initially wary about what we would find at the end of the long dirt road entrance; however, upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised. This cozy cabin, nestled in the woods was a nice blend of comfort and aesthetics. The knotty pine interior is beautiful, the bed was plush, and we enjoyed having a drink by the fire in the "great room." The best part, however, was Kathie. She was a wonderful hostess and a great cook! We look forward to returning!
I'm not much into bed & breakfast places just because I'm not an "antique-y" person & not big into seclusion. But this place was absolutely the perfect blend between rustic and modern. The woodwork of this house was absolutely gorgeous. I have a newfound appreciation for log cabins because of this place. Kathie was so hospitable and accommodating that it was more that I could ask for. Her cooking was phenomenal, she was very charming, and the bed.... The bed was so incredibly comfortable that I didn't want to get up!! I was expecting a bed on a creaky box spring and creaky wooden floors. That was not the case here. Not to mention the bathroom was excellent (especially the shower) & the view was perfect. I highly, highly recommend this bed and breakfast and I hope to be back one day! Very very very satisfied guest :)
Our stay at the Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast was excellent. I can't say enough good things about it. Kathie was pleasant and accommodating. The B and B is beautiful, clean, and quiet. We will definitely be coming to stay again this spring.
This was my first Bed & Breakfast and the experience was GREAT! Kathie was very kind and made sure we were comfortable with everything. I only wish we could've stayed longer to enjoy it. We will be back!
The Log Cabin B&B is a wonderful place to stay. The cabin is immaculate and architecturally stunning and the rooms are warm and comfortable. The great room, where you can sit to enjoy a warm drink and play a board game or two, is also lovely. Kathie was very friendly and was willing to accommodate our schedule for breakfast. We would definitely stay here again!
This is an absolutely gorgeous place run by a very gracious & accommodating couple. This log home is beautiful and our room was immaculate & well appointed. Off the main road a bit , however, that provides you with a very quiet , peaceful place to stay. I haven't slept that well in quite some time. I have done nothing but rave about how wonderful this place is to all of my friends and have suggested that they stay there as well. Definitely recommend this as a choice if you are looking for somewhere to stay overnight that is close to Brattleboro, VT and about a half hour ride from Keene, NH
This Bed and Breakfast was so relaxing. The bed and room were extremely comfortable and very clean. The location was a bit off the beaten path, but that added to the charm and peace, and Kathie's directions are very helpful for finding your way. The food was not over fussy, but homey and delicious. We would definitely stay there again.
Kathie is a warm and dedicated host. This place is a sanctuary. New, clean, modern with your own in room heating unit control, hot shower, and your own private porch. At night it is country dark. It feels like it's just you and the stars. In the morning you can look forward to Kathie's breakfast, no need to eat anywhere else. Head into Brattleboro, VT just a short drive and eat at the Whetstone Station. Great Food!
I can't say enough positive things about this little cabin in the woods! My boyfriend and I wanted a quiet night out of the city and this was perfect. The cabin itself is beautiful, clean, and cozy. The owner greeted us at the door and was more the hospitable during out 1 night stay. Breakfast is included and was delicious. There are only 2 rooms, each with their own private bath and porch. We will definitely be returning!
My husband & I stayed one night at this beautiful Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast. It has 2 rooms, so it was quiet and peaceful. Very comfortable accommodations and kept very clean! The innkeeper Kathie was so nice and makes a mean pancake with freshly squeezed oj. Their 3 fenced in sheep were very amusing. There was a deck with 2 chairs off of our room which looked out into the woods which was very serene. We also saw a mother deer with her two fawns. I definitely recommend trying this place and plan on returning!! Angela & Shawn
I had a lovely time: The room was fresh and clean with a variety of pillows and TV option and a little porch area if I wanted to sit outside. Everything was clean and neat, and our host was extremely accommodating; we had access to a variety of games and snacks all evening. We just spent one night so we didn't explore the grounds much, but having three friendly sheep in a pen at the back was a treat -- they're not noisy and are happy if you feed them (but make sure to get the feed from your host). Additionally, special accommodations were made for our breakfast in the morning, which was homemade and served hot and fresh. Couldn't really ask for more. Definitely worth the visit!
My husband and I stayed at the Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast for a romantic weekend getaway. The whole weekend exceeded my expectations. Kathie, the hostess, cooked us a delicious, fresh breakfast both mornings of our stay. In addition, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds in which I've ever slept. And my husband especially enjoyed the sheep in the back of the house. There is a Keurig machine in the kitchen that Kathie encourages her guests to use as often as they'd like. I loved how I could have as much coffee as I wanted without having to bother anyone to get it for me. :) The house was delightfully located down a dirt road away from the hustle and bustle of life, but yet only a short drive away from some lovely hiking paths and reasonable dining options. I honestly don't have a bad word to say about our stay at the Log Cabin, and I would definitely go back for another visit.
This was the last stop on a week-long jaunt around the area where MA, NH and VT converge, and we (my husband and I) definitely saved the best for last! Kathie was a gracious host who was easy to talk to and provided some good recommendations of things to do/places to eat in the area, but was never intrusive - she was also just as happy to let me sit quietly undisturbed, reading a book in the beautiful and spacious common area. Our room was clean and welcoming, with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, and the breakfasts were to die for. Pumpkin pancakes one morning, french toast the next, both paired with fresh fruit, real maple syrup, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Definitely the best breakfasts of our vacation! And this review would not be complete without a shout-out to the sheep. They were so fun to watch, I almost wanted to smuggle one home with me. :) If you are looking for a relaxing getaway off the beaten path, give the Log Cabin a try!
The Leyden Log Cabin B&B is the perfect cozy little place to stay on the MA/VT border. Kathie made us feel right at home in her beautiful (new construction) home that is clean and well-kept. The place even smells the way you'd imagine a log cabin should smell. Breakfast was very good, the area is beautiful (don't miss the farm around the corner or the nearby lake) and the rooms were spacious, well-stocked and modern. Kathie gave us privacy when we wanted it, and chatted with us (and had some great recommendations in the area) when we were ready. The private porch was a great feature, and the 3 sheep that live on the property were well-behaved and a fun addition to the whole experience. Highly recommended.
The Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast is a unique B&B that provides a peaceful, secluded getaway. The innkeeper is pleasant/welcoming and makes you feel right at home. The B&B is off the beaten path and tucked away deep in the woods and perfect for those looking to escape the real world and enjoy this lovely New England area. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the vicinity and will certainly be heading back at some point in the future.
This Bed and Breakfast was really wonderful to stay in. It's set back in the woods with beautiful surroundings. The Log Cabin is very clean and Kathie is a great hostess. We felt comfortable during our stay and are looking to come back again in a few months. The breakfast was great on both mornings of our stay, and she was great about my vegetarian diet. The beds are very comfortable, the communal area is cozy and inviting with a fireplace, books and games. When we were looking for somewhere nice to eat dinner Kathie was very helpful in suggesting places to go. I would totally reccomend this bed and breakfast to others and definetly plan on coming back to stay again! :)
My mother and I travelled through New England to see the fall colours. We stayed in many hotels and have to say we kept the best until last. The Log Cabin B&B is fabulous and Kathie made us feel very welcome and at home. The breakfasts were gorgeous and the rooms extremely comfortable, warm and clean. It felt like the perfect retreat to recharge our batteries before our long journey home.
