Very restful....could actually hear the crickets and frogs! Love the sheep! Very restful! Beautiful, comfortable and clean property, delicious breakfast!

We stayed at the Log Cabin inn the week of October 12th, 2016, for one night. It's a great B&B, very secluded and peaceful. Kathy was very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. That's a delicate balance that not all B&B hosts are able to handle. The house is designed as a B&B with the two guest rooms directly off the main living/dining room area. Everything was very clean. The breakfast was great - good quantity and quality. We would definitely stay there again, especially if we lived less than 3000 miles away!

We stayed at the Log Cabin while doing some genealogical research in the Leyden area. The area is quite remote, and there are very few options for lodging. But this little cabin provided a quiet and comfortable retreat after several days in the hustle and bustle of Boston. There are only two guest rooms, but they were comfortably appointed, and quite adequate for our needs. The innkeepers, Kathie and Glen, were very accomodating and quite helpful in guiding us to the various places we wanted to go. Our breakfasts were quite delicious and prepared "from scratch" each morning! Although it is modest in what it provides for the traveler, it is very clean and comfortable, and is situated in a lovely wooded area that is private and quiet. We found it to be quite delightful, and will definitely put it on our "must stop" places for future trips to the Leyden MA area.

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!

Couldn't have been any better. Thank you Kathie for being the perfect host.

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.
5 on September 15, 2015
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.

Loved our stay at the log cabin, Kathie could not have been more hospitable!
5 on June 27, 2015
This is a wonderful place if you are looking for peace and quiet. Very restful. Kathie was absolutely fabulous and her breakfasts were delicious!
5 on May 22, 2015
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.
5 on April 24, 2015
Thank you Kathie for a wonderful time and good conversation. We will return soon to enjoy the peace and quiet... AND THE BREAKFAST!
5 on March 29, 2015
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!
5 on March 16, 2015
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 :)
5 on February 28, 2015
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.
5 on February 27, 2015
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!
5 on February 27, 2015
I can't wait to go bed. Absolutely no complaints what so ever ¿¿
5 on November 03, 2014
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!
5 on October 31, 2014
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
5 on October 24, 2014
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.
4.0 on October 15, 2014
Kathi has certainly made her B&B extra special. The place is gorgeous tucked deep in the woods- what a delightful surprise!
5 on September 28, 2014
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!
5 on August 26, 2014
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!
5 on August 11, 2014
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
5 on August 08, 2014
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!
5 on July 27, 2014
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.
4.8 on June 21, 2014
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!
5 on June 12, 2014
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.
5 on May 26, 2014
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.
5 on January 04, 2014
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! :)
5 on November 03, 2013
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.

My wife and I loved this place. Wonderful get-away compared to a hotel room.

If you are looking for the ultimate in serenity,this is it. When the road turns to gravel and you are surrounded by forest ,lo and behold, you come upon this gem. As very frequent B&B guests,we feel confident giving the "Log Cabin" our highest accolades. You feel like you've rented an entire mountain. Each of the two rooms are tongue and groove pine, from floor to cathedral ceiling,large closet, and each has it's own private porch overlooking lawn/forest. We were not there for foliage but this would surely be the ultimate venue.Located on the Massachusetts/Vermont border, the overall feel is rural Vermont with the solitude that brings. Twenty min. south you are in Greenfield Mass. where you can enjoy the "Peoples Pint" for food and drink and Twenty min. North is Brattleboro, Vt. with decent small shops, a small but wonderful outlet center and Whetstone Station sited directly on the Connecticut River, where inside or outside dining affords dramatic views.Both " Peoples Pint" and Whetstone Station are microbreweries and both are worth the trip. The Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast is convenient to small towns in Southern Vermont like the picture perfect Newfane, with it's spectacular historic town center ,and General Store. Don't miss the Grafton Cheese Center and Saxtons River Distillery, on-site distillers of fine American oak- aged fine liquors, on Route 30 heading north out of Brattleboro. The "Log Cabin is only 2 years old and the rooms are very nice with the largest showers we have probably seen at a bed and breakfast.The beds were so amazingly comfortable we actually had to inquire about and learn that they were "Yankee Mattresses" The large common room with cathedral ceiling and fireplace is a focal point of this home and is the location for the wonderful breakfasts prepared by your gracious host.

My partner of 18 years and I travelled from Marietta, GA to Brattleboro, VT to get legally married this past labor day weekend. After the ceremony, we had dinner in town, and headed to The Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast. This B&B is just what we were looking for. It was far enough off the beaten path to be quiet and surrounded by beautiful scenery, yet near town for dining and other activities. The room was immaculate and the king-sized bed was so wonderfully comfortable that we could have slept through the weekend! We had a private bathroom and deck overlooking a beautiful forest view, as well as three delightful sheep! Kathie and Glen went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even made a special trip to town to get us a wedding cake to celebrate. The breakfast was delicious featuring home-made muffins, and fresh eggs and bacon. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We highly recommend this B&B for a quiet, comfortable stay with truly welcoming hosts. THANKS!~jana and sherrie, Sept 1, 2013

The Log Cabin was lovely, very clean and comfortable (great bed and pillows). Kathie was a delightful host and perfectly supported the weekend of rest and quiet we were looking for. I can highly recommend this place.

Kathie was very accommodating and welcoming. The Log Cabin is gorgeous and she keeps it very clean. Extremely comfortable bed, very nice bathroom. Great food, nice open area to sit and talk in, or be by the fire on a cold night. Prior to our visit my girlfriend had been emailing back and forth with Kathie, and she was very receptive to all of her questions; even let us know that the road leading to the bed and breakfast may be a bit rough to travel (due to the snow melting). We had dinner at The Farm Table a few miles away; incredible food, great hospitality. I highly recommend Kathie and The Log Cabin if you are searching for a relaxing getaway with your significant other. I will most certainly be going back for the hospitality offered and the gorgeous log cabin.

Fittingly, The Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast hasn't gotten fewer than five stars in any category from any reviewer so far. I can't disagree with any of the comments others have posted, but rather than echo them, I'll try to offer some additional details and pay a few extra compliments. My boyfriend and I spent a recent Saturday night there. He’s a bit younger than me, and I appreciated our hostess, Kathie, asking if we were “partners” rather than just making an assumption about the nature of our relationship. It was immediately clear to me it was an LGBTQ-friendly place. I’ve stayed at several of the hotel chains in the area and find them to be grossly overpriced relative to the quality of the accommodations. This is most certainly not the case with The Log Cabin B&B. The property is immaculate! I didn’t see a speck of dust anywhere. I loved the vaulted ceilings in both the main room and the guestroom. At night, with the windows aglow, the cabin was a gorgeous “home” to return to after a night out. The cabin has radiant heating in the floor, but there is a wall unit in the guestroom for extra warmth on a cool morning or night. The bed is extremely comfortable and Kathie even puts small flashlights on the nightstands (so you can find your way to your private bathroom without turning on the light and waking the person sleeping next to you). The room features a small wall-mounted flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi. Cell phone reception at the property is very limited (this could be a plus if you’re looking for peace and quiet) but you get it quickly as you head back to town. Kathie took my dietary needs (I’m a vegetarian) into consideration and prepared a delicious breakfast (including fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh-baked muffins). The layout of the property is such that Kathie and her husband, Glen, have their rooms on one side of the great room, and the two guestrooms are on the other side.

I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway. The log cabin was the PREFECT place! It was so quiet. The room was very clean and spacious and the bed and pillows were beyond comfortable! Kathie was so nice and made a very tasty breakfast. If you are looking for a quiet and romantic place to "just get away" this is the place to go!!
5 on October 08, 2012
My husband and I are still talking about our stay at the The Log Cabin, one year after our honeymoon. It was the best, cleanest, friendliest B&B we have ever been to. From a delightful Keurig in your own room, to having pumpkin pancakes in the morning, we have nothing but fond memories of The Log Cabin and want to go back there every fall.
5 on August 06, 2012
My wife and I were looking for a last second B&B for a trip to the Northeast. We stumbled upon Log Cabin, which gave us something to talk about for the rest of our trip. It was extremely clean, up-to-date electronically, but maintained its coziness very well. The beds were very comfortable, there's an extending flat panel TV near the foot of the bed, the attached bathroom is perfect, and the attached porch looking into the beautiful, full Massachusetts woodlands is a cherry on top. The innkeeper was so nice, very enthralled and interested in what we had to say and share. The breakfast was delectable, highlighted by hand-squeezed OJ. The proximity is also a gem, right on the border where MA, NH, and VT meet. It really was the highlight of our trip, worth every penny. I could go on forever, but I recommend Log Cabin to anyone!!
5 on July 20, 2012
I visited the Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast with friends for a relaxing getaway at the end of the school year. The first glimpse of the cabin was absolutely breathtaking! Kathie and Glen were wonderful hosts who made us feel most welcome and relaxed. My room was gorgeous, the bed super comfortable, and the porch outside the room, complete with rockers, added a perfect touch. I loved being able to use the Kuerig coffeemaker to brew coffee without disturbing anyone and enjoy reading on the porch. There was even a bookshelf full of books to read if you forgot your own, which I did. The breakfasts were scrumptious; I can still close my eyes and see and smell the amazing french toast casserole. I'd recommend this B&B to anyone! I can't wait to return!

Going up the driveway to 44 Keets Road and seeing the Log Cabin was a sight I will never forget. It is stunning. The Log Cabin is in a perfect setting and everything is so pristine. We were greeted by the innkeeper Kathie who is just a perfect hostess. My friends and I had a very relaxing weekend, the breakfasts were superb and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Having my own porch to sit out on and read each early morning was divine. This is a bed and breakfast to return to again and again.
5 on June 26, 2012
My husband and I recently stayed at The Log Cabin B&B in Leyden MA. The location of this lovely retreat certainly added to the experience. The Log Cabin is tucked in the woods off a road which meanders beside Keets Brook. The canopy of trees, the dappled sunlight, birdsong and the gurgling brook were our welcoming committee to this private oasis. The facility itself is a sight to behold. It is beautiful outside and even more impressive inside! We loved that the building was new, clean and had all the modern amenities which make a vacation truly enjoyable. Upon entering the Log Cabin we were met by Kathie Benson, a friendly, funny and accommodating innkeeper. Her attention to detail and eagerness to please, made our stay very enjoyable. The main room of the B&B includes the living/dining and kitchen areas. An enormous stone fireplace, comfy couches, board games and books, plus the view of the woods make this a place we didn't want to leave! Our room was equally cozy. We loved the luxurious walk-in shower, our own porch with two rockers and being able to watch cable tv from our king sized bed. Kathie served a delicious breakfast, at our convenience on both days of our visit. Since I am an early riser, I appreciated that she has a Keurig coffee machine so I could enjoy my first cup without disturbing anyone. The Log Cabin B&B is a place I would recommend for anyone wishing to enjoy peace and quiet in a luxuriously rustic setting. We will definitely be visiting again!
5 on February 22, 2012
Ok, we stayed there this past weekend 2/19 to 2/21 and it was absolutely amazing. I told Kathie that the pictures did NOT do the place justice. This place was just built so every thing is newer than new and it is very cozy in there. Me and my hubby definitely loved the serenity of being away from bustling city noise. Vermont is a stone's throw away therefore we spent a few hours in Brattleboro, a lot of nice shops and restaurants, I'd highly recommend it to the artsy people. Overall, this was a great trip and we can't wait to return! The innkeeper, Kathie, is also a GREAT cook...so that should be incentive enough!!
5 on November 12, 2011
What a beautiful and unique place! It really has to be seen to be fully appreciated. So cozy, rural, and charming; yet with every modern convenience and everything sparkling clean and brand new!! My favorite part was the in-room coffee service and private porch with rocking chairs - I enjoyed my coffee in blessed peace and quiet while looking out at the beautiful Leyden woods. The innkeeper, Kathie, is just very easy to talk to and made sure we had everything we needed. Pumpkin walnut pancakes for breakfast too, mmmmmmm. I did not want to leave and return to the real-world, but I cheered myself up planning to return many times in the future!

We had the pleasure of staying at The Log Cabin over the last weekend in October 2011 (yes, the one with the bizarre snow storm!). This B&B blew our minds - for its closeness to nature, pristine cleanliness, "green" features, proximity to town and above all, the great hospitality of Innkeeper, Kathie Benson, her husband Glen and their two cats. We were travelling with a 16 month old toddler and even he had a blast (bearing in mind we were pretty much stuck indoors over the duration of the storm) - no cabin fever here, that's a guarantee! Ask about Kathie's blueberry muffins - they taste as delicious as they smell! We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone travelling in the area and need a great place to relax and unwind. No prizes for guessing where we plan on staying the next time we visit Leyden! Ramesh, Suzanne & Ayden - New Jersey.
