Property description

Bordered by running streams and surrounded by 25+ acres of DEP-protected Catskill Mountains forest lands, this 1.65 acre hideaway offers a serenely quiet retreat. Nestled among the mountains, within 15 minutes of Woodstock and 5 minutes of Emerson Spa, this fully-equipped home is especially well-suited for families with young children (adjustable basketball hoop in driveway, sledding hill just outside living room windows, Grant Avery Public Park/IGA supermarket/pharmacy within 5 minutes, full size Weber propane BBQ grill, 2 backyard fire pits ideal for s’mores) or for couples seeking a perfect spot for a romantic getaway (wood stove inset to stone fireplace in living room with vaulted ceiling, dimmer switches throughout the house provide ambient lighting, liquor store within 5 minutes).

Only 2 hours drive to New York City!!!


Guest Book #1: Dear Ben and Erica: Thank you for sharing your magnificent mountain getaway with us, six young professionals on holiday from the hustle bustle of NYC. Upon our arrival, we built a roaring fire which warmed our bodies and our spirits. We spent two lovely days exploring the lovely Catskills. On day one, some of us enjoyed the powder of Hunter Mountain. Day two brought our group to the four-star Emerson Spa where we relaxed with sensual massages and soaks in the outdoor hot tub. You have a warm home, and we would recommend it to anyone needing to get away. Thank you! From, Ben, Elizabeth, Jen, Nathan, Sarah, Shannon

Guest Book #2: What a comfortable house in such beautiful surroundings. We especially delighted in the surrounding brook and fire pit. It's rare to find a cabin with so many little luxuries combined with rustic simplicity. We took a pretty walk on the reservoir path and had a tasty pizza at a restaurant down the road (Merlina's?). We saw hummingbirds last night in the backyard! Thanks for a lovely time!! -- L & N Families

Guest Book #3: Dear Ben & Erica: Thank you so much! We wanted a getaway to a quiet place with snow to celebrate New Year in a peaceful home. This is more than we could imagine. Everything was perfect! This was the first time my son saw snow, he loved it! We even saw a bunch of footprints in the backyard! It was so cozy here! The simple, yet treasured, smell of firewood in the wood stove, made everything seem like a dream come true. Thank you for making this New Year one of the best we had! -- The L Family

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As a couple who lives day-to-day in NYC, we love to use this house ourselves and so we've taken great care to ensure it has everything that we want when we're there. We like using real, non-rental dishes with high-end pots and pans. We like using wireless internet connections that actually work, wireless iTunes connections to the stereo plus an iPod port, the ability to fax when necessary, the ability to turn on an alarm system, using a wine fridge, playing basketball out front, watching fire in the pits out back or in the fireplace inside, using a massive Weber BBQ grill and dimmer switches everywhere. We're also insane about keeping things CLEAN. :-) With all that we just decompress. Watch the deer or the hawks or the hummingbirds. Or just read a book while listening to the streams babbling by on either side of the property. Regardless, just love our place as much as we do and don't hesitate to call with questions while you're there.
