Heronbrook Hideaway New York Aframe Vacation


A-frames — like yurts — hold a special place in my heart. The unconventional structures aren’t necessarily the most efficient use of space, but they look awesome and give a great feel. This particular A-frame is 200 square feet and sits on a 30-acre woodland plot in New York.

It’s entirely off-grid, but a Cubic Mini woodstove and solar lights let you enjoy comforts, and it’s definitely a step-up from tenting with the king-sized bed. There’s a fire pit outside, as well as a nearby outhouse. What a perfect place to unplug and truly rest!

You can book a stay on Airbnb.

    Great photography; lovely site! I used to be utterly anti-A-frame, but I now see their value as private and rental guest homes.
    Super pluses: 30 acres to explore/meander. Great outhouse! The solar lighting is more than adequate. Refreshing.
    I’m a lifelong wood heat and cast iron fan. Swoon! I’d drive halfway across country for that entry door by the futon. And the ground-floor bed!
    Not so much; The very cute outhouse looks like 100 feet +/- from the cabin. My 72-year old bladder laughs hysterically at the idea of walking half a block at night, with or without a lantern. No outside shower or tub…heating frypans of water for a spit bath? No.
    Beautiful and well done, but no longer for me. Darn. I do like it lots. Ty for posting, Natalie!

      It’s more like less than 50 feet, but may still be too far for some… Those path stake lights are typically placed around 6 feet apart to get a better idea of the length of the path… The last photo you can just make out the outhouse behind and to the left of the cabin, right by the treeline to also compare… Kinda similar to getting to the campfire/picnic table to the right of the cabin…

      Getting up and down those stairs each time may be a contributing factor as well, though…
