"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!!"

"For summer rental the pond is definitely the highlight. The picture doesn't describe this large weedless pond properly. Completely surrounded by woods on property that really has no visible neighbours this pond is the highlight of the rental. Air temp in August was low 80s and the surface water temp was probably mid 70s. Very cold a few feet deeper but that means you just have to float in comfort. The 2nd story south facing deck on the house was high enough to be bug free, catches the breeze and had a pleasing view of the big lawn and woods. Great for relaxing, dining or star gazing. Great Barrington is about 1/2 hour away which has the needed grocery stores (Guido's or the Co op), shopping, restaurants and a different hiking trail every day. Can't say much about the house because we spent most of the time outside. One drawback was that the TV had no cable or satellite reception but the wi fi was fast and reliable."

"We rented the house for a weekend for place to stay while attending a wedding in Pine Plains, NY. The house was absolutely perfect, it fit 7 of us great and the property is wonderful, secluded, private and the views are absolutely stunning. The owner, Lorrie, was also really responsive and totally great. Thanks again!"

"I've rented this cabin several times and can't recommend it enough! It's a lovely cabin, and features a large covered deck with a grill, tables rocking chairs etc. (I've even enjoyed Summer dinners there while it was raining outside!) It's just a couple of minutes drive to Phoenicia, 15-20 minutes to Woodstock, close to great restaurants and a lot of the cool stuff that the Catskills has to offer. Also, a great stream for swimming & tubing (tubing rental place is right in Phoenicia) There's also a great swimming hole in the stream about a 10 minute walk from the cabin that really is quite lovely. The owners are also very cool. When we found that we could actually stay longer, I contacted them asking if it was possible, they got back immediately, we made arrangements, and our vacation got an extra day! I'm sure I'll be coming back again. Highly recommended!!"
