"We spent the last two weeks of August at the farmhouse in Bovina. We've rented other properties in the Catskills, but this is the first one that not only lived up to our expectations, but exceeded them. The property itself is enormous (well over 100 acres), gorgeous, and beautifully maintained. It was a pleasure to simply sit on the front porch and drink of cup of coffee or a glass of wine. My husband and dog would hike up to the top of the hill behind the house every morning and take in the amazing view. We swam in the pond, played lots of dog Frisbee on the grass, and went for long runs on the Catskill scenic trail nearby.
The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. There was a nice Weber grill outside. And we made dinners many nights from produce purchased at local farm stands and farmers' markets and vegetables and herbs straight from the garden. If we didn't feel like cooking, we could drive to the nice little restaurant in Bovina Center, or get Friday night pizza in Bloomville, or just grab a burger and a beer in Andes.
Our two weeks in Bovina were supremely idyllic and we were sorry that we had to return to the city."

"We have been renting this home for the past three years with old college friends. The house is always very clean, comfortable, and feels like a home away from home. After many years of a yearly college alumni camping trip, we are so happy that we "graduated" to this home! We are able to maintain the rustic feel with the fire pit and the grill and yet get completely pampered by the hot tub. This place is always amazing!"

"My husband and I have been coming to this charming little barn (converted ) cabin for years now. At least five. I can never rave about it enough. It is so adorable and away from all the stress of the city. In all the years we have been coming Mirav has continued to maintain the cabin and property to keep it comfortable and estetically pleasing. All the reviews that speak of how kind Mirav is are no exaggerations. Mirav goes out of her way to be as helpful as possible. Throughout the years she has left wine out for us, extended checkout times and even added an extra day on the house! Anytime we need help with anything she runs over right away, while still leaving us privacy. The cabin is so cozy and simply just makes you feel nice. The hot tub brings the experience to an even higher level. I always look forward to gazing up at the stars in the freezing cold while being enveloped by the warmth of the soothing hot tub.
As for amenities it has just what anyone could want or need. As for a stove ( I noticed someone complained about not having one) this is not that type of cabin. Its the kind of place you go when u don't want to cook or work lol. It's got a hot plate and for anyone who wants to do more there is a huge charbroil grill outside. ( yes even in the winter we go out there and slap our steaks and burgers on and are quite happy.. It's actually fun)
My husband and I love the firmness of the bed. We have a soft bed at home and realize that Everytime we come back from the cabin our backs feel better and we are more rested. In fact we are in the market for a new mattress and will be getting a firm one as well this time around.
As I said in the beginning I can never rave about this spot enough. From the customer service that Mirav provides, to the ambiance, the location and even how close the ski lodge is there is really nothing you can complain about. I have visited many other cabins but this Is the only one my husband and I come back to year after year. I look forward to many more years. My only complaint is how much I hate leaving when it's time to go.. To anyone who might think this is some sort of shrill review I can assure you it's not. It's Merely a very happy " patron"! ( now if I could only see a bear one year!! But I guess that's my fault for coming mainly in the wintertime lol) Best regards Mirav! Till next year!!"
