"We very much enjoyed our short stay at this house. We had a mini-reunion with my brother from western NY so the Catskills were a convenient mid-point (we live in Central Massachusetts). The house was in great shape and the deck overlooking the stream was the epitome of relaxing. The house was also well stocked except for a shortage of regular spoons. :-)
While we were in the area, we hiked to the Kaaterskill Falls which were very impressive. We also took a pleasant walk at the Ashokan Reservoir a short distance away and walked around Woodstock which was within a half-hour drive. We also saw the world's largest kaleidoscope (!) at the Emerson Spa, also close, and got coffee for the drive home at Mama's Boy in downtown Phoenicia.
Overall, just a very, very nice and easy experience. And I love the Homeaway mobile app that was very handy!"

"This is the second time we have been to the cottage. Once more, it was the greatest break I could expect from stress. At only 109 miles from NYC, we have everything we can dream of and do not have in Biggle Apple: peace, free of noise and dust, fresh air, and beautiful surroundings all around! I just missed the deer we saw in 2011! The cottage is ravishing, has everything we needed and has this large corral where my 2 little Pomeranians were literately jumping of joy (like rabbits do when they run)! They both recognized the place right away and were so frantic that they made me regret to have to come back after only 3 days..... We spent our time relaxing and basking in the sun on the porch and drove a little bit in the catskills where the scenery is absolutely stunning! It was perfect.
Also the owner kindly replied right away to text messages and calls we sent for details.
This location is a piece of jewelry indeed!"

"We escaped NYC for 5 days to this beautiful, natural sanctuary. We fished, boated, hiked, swam and biked - and our elementary aged children took horse back riding lessons and jumped freely into the lake. We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful change from our everyday city life!
Thanks Laura and Tom!"

"I spent this past weekend at the sweet little cabin with my boyfriend for a mini retreat away from the city. It was incredible. The cabin is the coziest little home, and the fireplace and candles and comfy furniture really put it over the top for us. The furniture and artwork and finishes are all updated and beautifully done. The fireplace is stunning. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook amazing meals (loved the cast iron pan). A fire was all set up for us when we arrived and we loved all of the personal touches: the bath salts by the bathtub, the extra firewood, the cozy throw blankets, etc. We fell asleep to the sound of pouring rain and it was amazing. There are so many windows in every room and tons of hidden cabinets for storage- plus the bonus room is very cozy with the floor to ceiling windows! The cabin is very small, but for two people it really is perfect.
On Friday night we went to the Peekamoose restaurant. Very cool atmosphere; the food was pretty good.
Sunday morning we went to the Phoenicia diner for chicken and waffles- Delicious!
We spent all day Saturday at the Mowers flea market in Woodstock, exploring Woodstock, and fishing off the bridge right down the street from the cabin.
It was such a wonderful weekend and we couldn't be more thankful to our hosts. I recommend this cabin 100% to anyone looking for a little romantic retreat in the woods. We can't wait to come back.
Just a note (I'm sure it says it somewhere, but I missed it)- there's NO cell service in the cabin and barely any in Phoenicia. The cabin has a landline though and the Wifi is perfect, so it's not a problem, but just wanted to point it out."
