Built in the 1940's by Louis Bromfield's friend and neighbor Jim Pugh, the cabin is nestled deep in the Malabar Farm sugar bush and offers a tranquil setting for your gathering. The Pugh Cabin is a perfect retreat for meetings, conferences, receptions and other intimate gatherings. The Pugh Cabin is a day use cabin only, no overnight accomodations. Click here to read a comprehensive history of the cabin and its former owner, James Pugh.
