Nestled atop a hill on 2.5 acres with absolutely stunning views and the most peaceful and private surroundings, this all-season (central heat and air conditioning) micro-cabin is your private sanctuary to enjoy with your own deck, picnic table for 2, and a private fire pit.

This is the 'Science cabin' one of four cabins on the property along with our 1875 FLX Schoolhouse.

The space
Welcome to the Science Cabin at the FLX Schoolhouse! It's one of 4 micro-cabins that's on the land of the FLX Schoolhouse, a renovated 1875 schoolhouse, that is also a whole-house rental. You’ll find us in the heart of the Finger Lakes, the picturesque wine region of upstate New York.

The Science Cabin sits atop the hills of Seneca Lake on 2.5 acres of farmland with amazing mountain views and killer sunsets. It's peace, serenity and overall good vibes are what attracted us to this property.

We renovated the FLX Schoolhouse in 2018 and added 4 cabins to the property in 2021. The interior of the micro-cabin has a balance between modern luxe and schoolhouse, science-inspired charm. You will find most of the furnishings from some of our favorite brands like West Elm, Crate and Barrel and Casper. The outdoor deck has a mini picnic table for 2 for some al’ fresco dining and a Breeo fire pit for stargazing at night.

**Have more guests? You can rent all 4 of the micro-cabins and the Schoolhouse too! Simply click on my Profile picture below and it will take you to all my listings. You can also search your dates and see what is available with all of the listings at one time.**

Here are some of the things we adore in about the cabin and where it is.

-the location: the Science Cabin at the Schoolhouse has a perfect trifecta location: 1) it's peaceful & quiet as it sits on 2.5 acres surrounded by woods and farmland, 2) it's perched on top of a hill giving way to the most amazing sunsets against mountain backdrops, and 3) it's also conveniently located; being close to all of your attractions. 5 miles above the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and within 5 miles you will find everything you need from farm stands and wineries, to restaurants and a convenient store with gas and firewood. Want to head over to Ithaca or the Cayuga Lake wine trail, it's just a short 20-minute drive through farms, fields and the Finger Lakes State Forest.

-the cabin: it’s a micro-cabin/tiny home, built by local Amish families, with modern amenities. Cute and cozy, the cabin is tiny at 200 sq. ft. interior and 120 sq. ft. of outdoor deck space and grassy-green area for your personal fire pit, it’s perfect for a couple or solo-traveler. Each cabin has a privacy wall off the deck and there is 30 feet between each cabin. Fully equipped with a standing shower and flushing toilet, kitchenette, heat and air conditioning, it has everything you need to unwind in the countryside.

-the kitchenette: it’s cute but basic. You’ll find a mini fridge and microwave here with flatware & dinnerware but this isn’t a place to cook full meals. More so a place to re-heat takeout meals or keep your beverages cold.

-morning java: You will find everything you need for a great cup, including a Stagg Kettle for killer pour-overs. Complimentary locally roasted organic beans from Seneca Sunrise Coffee and organic tea are both waiting for you. Morning routine, we’ve got you covered.

-sleep: When you want to rest, relax and rejuvenate, you need a comfortable bed, one that holds you. And that is what you’ll get here. A queen bed by Casper, the super comfortable memory foam bed adored by celebrities...and us! Plenty of pillows and warm blankets so you can relax and unwind with ease.

-the bathroom: This is not a glamping cabin; you have your own private bathroom. It’s fully-functional with a standing shower, fluffy towels and yes, a flushing toilet. We also provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash and make-up remover for your convenience.

-the decor: from schoolhouse inspired vintage finds to hints of modern minimalism throughout, our love of Scandinavian design can be found around every tiny corner.

-the amenities: we provide bottled water, snacks and locally roasted organic coffee with each stay. You will also find shampoo, conditioner and body wash for your use. Freshly laundered linens and bathroom towels are provided.

-technology: Working remotely? The micro-cabin has strong wifi, and a smart TV.

-the outdoor space: the cabin is perched upon a hill surrounded by farm lands. We find ourselves outside after a great day on the Seneca Lake wine trail. Whether you are in the mood to light a fire in your personal fire pit while you gaze at the stars (on a clear night, you can see the Milky Way) or hang out on your private deck, the views are stunning.

-traveling with friends? We have 4 cabins on the property as well as the original 1875 Schoolhouse, all available for rent on Airbnb. The other 3 cabins are: Math, History, & Science.

Where you’ll be

Burdett, New York, United States

The Science Cabin at the Schoolhouse is 5 miles to the first winery on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. On the trail, there are many wineries and breweries along with a distillery and a cider house.

Watkins Glen is 5 miles from the house and a convenient mart (the Dandy) is just down the road on Rt. 79 with food, beer, firewood, gas and an ATM. Heading to Ithaca, it's only 20 minutes from the house and you will find an eclectic mix of eats and culture there. While we are not directly on Seneca Lake, you can access it in Watkins Glen for kayaking, sailboat tours and boat rentals. You will find waterfront dining there too.

Upon booking, we will provide you with an interactive (great for accessing via your cell phone) guidebook that lists out everything you need to know about the home and the region as well as our Top 10 places to eat, drink, play and explore!
