NY Cabin Rentals: Sunsets, Ice Cream and Making Memories

Summer.  We relish every minute of it.


When folks come to enjoy one our cozy cabins here at Wellnesste Lodge, they often make an evening trip down the road to take in a beautiful sunset.  That's just one of the many outdoor adventures to enjoy here in Central NY, CNY.  

Oneida Lake and Sylvan Beach are just 15 minutes from our 60 acre sanctuary and cozy cabin rentals.  Here at Wellnesste and in our surrounding area there's hiking, biking, kayaking, campfires, bbq's, fishing, playing in the water, volleyball and so much more for everyone to enjoy.  You can also just "chill" and let the stress flow away by sitting quietly by the river (we have over a half mile of pristine private river frontage).

Making memories and chilling out are the best way to get rid of everyday stress.  Come join us for a night, a week or a month... we're open all year long for 4 seasons of New York fun and relaxation.  

Nature's here waiting for you and so is your cabin.  -Christophe & Family



Wellnesste Lodge named in TOP 10 Things to Do in New York State


One of the wonderful things about our little place in the woods is having travelers from all over the world come for a visit. Sometimes people stay for a night and sometimes for a month. We never know much about them before they settle down into one of our cabin rentals, but most of the time we're able to "get to know them" a bit during their stay. This interaction comes in many forms from an initial walkabout of the property, to sharing a cold drink by the beach to star gazing around the bonfire and more. One of our visitors that we were delighted to meet and get to know better was a beautiful soul named Catherine who traveled from the U.K. to tour New York State.

She spent nearly a month whirling around from the reaches of NY from Long Island to Buffalo and beyond. We were lucky enough to have her choose our place as part of her tour. As a travel writer for Responsible Travel, Catherine was checking out many spots throughout the state to get a sense of what New York State was all about and the types of "responsible travel" destinations and activities the state had to offer. Long story short... we really enjoyed Catherine's visit and we were so thrilled and honored when she and the Responsible Travel folks named Wellnesste Lodge as "One of the Top 10 Things to do in NY".

Here's the excerpt from the Top 10 List. Wellnesste Lodge appeared as #9...

"It is often the people who make the place, and this is definitely the case at Wellness: Té Lodge in Taberg, Central New York. The name is derived from the Sanskrit 'Namaste' meaning 'greetings onto you' , the owners adapting it to 'wellness onto you' in the hope that guests will feel revived by nature that surrounds them here. There is indeed something healing and calm about this place, a haven for families with Fish Creek running through its sixty acres. You can swim and tube in the river, chill out in one of their Norwegian style cabins, go birdwatching in their biodiverse grounds, or just chill on their wooded walking trails, ideal for snowshoeing in winter too. Generous and warm hosts, Christophe and Karen Marin-Gerlach are French and Norwegian respectively and their den of natural deliciousness has been informed by their joint cultural heritage as well as their innate passion for conservation. Still in its nascence and growing organically, it is sure to keep blossoming for a long time to come."

Dog Friendly Winter Cabin Rentals in NY


One of the treasures of Winter at Wellnesste Lodge and Cabin Rentals is having friendly dogs of all shapes and sizes around. So many guests come to visit our cozy cabins from all over the Northeast and bring their puppies to goof off in the great outdoors.

There's a certain thrill and satisfaction in seeing our furry friends frolic in the fresh powdery snow! Whether it's going out for a hike, doing some snow tubing, wandering the woods for a snowshoe adventure or strapping on cross-country skis, our lodging guests always seem to find winter fun. Their pets are always close by, including snuggling in their cabin after a day's long adventure :-) Photo: Ottie enjoying the snow during a snowshoe hike with Christophe
