"My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Sweet Little Cabin, and it was perfect for what we wanted - quiet! The cabin itself is absolutely beautiful - the finishes are top notch and we had everything we needed for a comfortable weekend away. We enjoyed exploring Woodstock and Phoenicia and got in a few good hikes, but the best part of our weekend was just relaxing at the cabin - coffee on the front porch in the morning, cocktails on the patio in the evening, and great dinners cooked on the charcoal grill each night. We also enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. If we ever return to the Catskills, we would definitely go back to the Sweet Little Cabin!"

"We rented this home with one other family for a local event that was taking place in the area in June. The home is spotless and the location is amazing. Only steps away from the ski slopes which during June was perfect for hiking up the mountain. The owners were extremely accommodating. Perfect rental for 2 families as there are plenty of beds to sleep many people. I would highly recommend this rental for all 4 seasons. Truly a great place for a quite getaway in the Mountains not far from NYC."

Unbelievably big house with something for everyone.
"We just returned from a weekend at the "mansion." We were a group of 27 family members three generations (15 grandkids ages 5-25). Everyone had a great time. The game room was wonderful and we actually ended up dancing under the disco ball on the dance floor. The indoor pool was a huge plus, and all the kids had a blast.
The reasons I'm not giving it 5 stars are: there's no central air, and only 4 of the 16 bedrooms have air conditioning; none of the bathrooms upstairs had any towel racks or hooks to hang your towels on; The oversized deck only had one table to seat 6 (and it was rusty) and the deck chairs are those old chalky white plastic ones; there is absolutely no artwork (or photos) of any kind on any wall in the house and the bedrooms didn't have any nightstands or lamps. It really shouldn't be described as a mansion because it isn't. It's just a GIGANTIC house."

"Our family vacation (with two parents, one 8 year old boy, one dog) was such a raving success that the biggest downside was witnessing our usually stalwart son's tears at the very end of our stay. In a word, the place is peace. There's so MUCH property (hard to even compute for any fellow New Yorkers, but let me try with "there are avenues and avenues of property") a dog can safely run and run all day without you worrying about the street. Our son swam, canoed in the world's safest pond, spotted fish, a (barn?) owl, deer, and many a bold Bluejay. We slept like rocks. The TV was exactly what parents want from a family vacation—a fine collection of family DVDs (we all loved "School of Rock") but nothing so jaw-dropping it's luring your children away from nature. There's two bedrooms upstairs, but it would be easy to toss some kiddos in the spacious downstairs living rooms (there's 2) and gift the upstairs to adults only. The pool is perfection, next to what looks like the remains of a 1800s-era (?) stone basement. It's just beyond idyllic. You'll drive away kicking yourself for not exploring the apple orchard in more detail—that's the kind of post-vacation problem you'll have.
One important note on the kitchen, as I'd seen a previous reviewer make somewhat negative comments—the kitchen (and more importantly the BBQ) are great. Is there a Viking stove? No. Would you WANT a Viking stove in a summer house? Hope not! Inside there's a perfectly functioning kitchen and we used it during the one cold evening to make a delicious dinner. I was delighted to poke around the cabinets and find an immersion blender, a Cuisinart, good knives, and even a salad spinner. However the real thrill is in cooking outside. Clearly the owner loves barbecue, because the grill is fantastic, complete with multiple chimneys and a smoker. All forms of grill equipment are there, from skewers to tongs, and your best meals will be out on the deck, overlooking over the water.
Funniest moment: our 1 year old labrador mix encountering her very first deer
Favorite moment: spending every evening from 5-8 out on the dock as a family, watching the nature without our son ever once asking if he could "go turn on the TV""
