Does the approaching winter and a second lockdown have you singing the blues? This Norwich cabin might change your tune.  

If you’ve been considering holing up in a little off-grid cabin to weather both the weather and the looming second pandemic lockdown (this time without benefit of warm temperatures), put down your MREs and pay attention to Upstater this week. We’re going on a hunting expedition, and it’s Prepper Cabin season.

For variety’s sake, we’re using the term “prepper cabin” to mean any small, secluded cottage that’s off-grid or offers the potential to go off-grid and live in a self-sustaining manner. Listen, say what you will about doomsday preppers, they know their way around a garden and a generator.

Here in this 900-square-foot cabin situated on 51 acres in Chenango County, NY, you’ll have the basics available to embrace a prepper lifestyle, even if it’s just part-time, like a first-floor wood stove, on-demand propane water heater, and a well-equipped kitchen.

The second floor loft offers more sleeping accommodation but could use a little cosmetic updating…

….and the private setting offers a mix of open fields and woodsy terrain. There’s even a small pond on the property. The home’s solar-powered panels keep the lights on without the utility bill, but if you decide to get back on the grid, the option is available.

This is a true upstate getaway, located practically dead-center in the middle of the state, about a half-hour’s drive west of Onteona. Expect the full wildlife experience, and be sure to prep accordingly, which shouldn’t be a problem for you, you soon-to-be prepper, you.
