Adam Naill purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Adam Naill chose Wurtsboro
This property is truly special and restorative. It has untouched mountain views, and hearing the waterfall roar below you is like nothing else. A NYC ballerina built our cabin in 1951. You can feel the history when you are there.

Great cabin in a perfect spot
My brothers and I stayed here over a weekend in May, to get some quality catching up in. We LOVED this cabin, and the property around it.
The cabin itself has a ton of nice touches, from the sitting area out front to the back patio that hangs over the waterfall below, to the furniture and awesome vinyl collection the owners allow visitors to use. There are quirks to the place - the steep steps up to the loft bed, the hand-held shower nozzle in the claw-footed tub - neither of these bothered us at all, and the quirks were far outweighed by the great perks. Also, it's a cabin in the Catskills, not a hotel, so expect the occasional stray moth or ant to wander in - nothing major, just a reminder of where you are.
The property itself is amazing. While you can't walk around it (it's heavily wooded and very steep and treacherous), the view is amazing, overlooking the rolling hills of the Catskills. The constant roar of the rushing waterfall below is just ambient enough to always remind you where you are, but not so loud you can't hold a conversation or fall to sleep. Location is great, in that it's remote enough so you're not aware of neighbors while enjoying the great outdoors, while also close enough to the center of town, where the food and stores are.
Adam and Chrissy were fantastic hosts. They were quick to respond to all requests, and had a great guest book full of local tips, origin stories about the cabin itself, and more.
I'll be taking my wife back here in the fall for a little romantic getaway.
A Quiet retreat
Very cozy and comfy cabin in a blissfully quiet and scenic location- easy to get to and all the comforts... especially great that we could bring our dog!
the sound of the waterfall is a plus!
Wonderful spot, comfortable cabin, attentive hosts
This proved to be the perfect place to get away from the city for a few days. The view is spectacular and the cabin very comfortable. Our hosts were amazing, making sure we had all the information we needed prior to arrival and answering the few questions we had instantly. It must be a wonderful place to spend time in the summer. We loved learning about the history of the cabin and all the things to do in the area. We had an enjoyable day birding at Bashakill Preserve, only a 15 minute drive away. Also appreciated the fast, reliable wifi and Netflix for cozy nights in. Couldn't be happier with our stay!
Not ready for guests who require electricity and running water
This exquisite land and adorable cabin would be ideal if there was running water and electricity which at the price per night is something a guest would completely expect. during our stay electricity went out on the second evening and there was no way to fix it before we packed up the car to leave early the next morning instead of enjoying our stay. the property owners stated that it is normal in the mountains to lose electricity and therefore lights water etc. if this is normal then there should be a back up generator immediately ready for guests or it should be advised in advanced that if you require electrucity or running water for toilet or kitchen to beware. I was very disappointed in how it was handled by the owner, basically rent at your own risk. They reimbursed $50 even though 1/2 of the time of our trip was ruined. We had people who medically needed running water and the owners told us if they knew that in advance they would have told us to rent elsewhere.
We're sorry you had an unsatisfying experience on the last morning of your stay. I was notified by Orange & Rockland Utilities that the electricity went out because of weather in the area at 6:14AM on your last morning and was restored a few hours later at 9:29AM, about 10 minutes before you texted us that you had left the cabin at 9:40AM. As mentioned in our write-up, "In bad weather, power can be unpredictable. There is no generator." We also mentioned we were in the process of setting up a generator and we now have one fully operational, ready to run the cabin for up to a week.
As far as us telling you to "rent elsewhere", we were extremely surprised and worried to find out AFTER the power had gone out that there were guests with special needs. Chrissy was particularly worried while on the phone with your friend, and again, trying to help. Later, when you contacted us again, we did mention that if we had been informed in advance that people staying with us had special medical needs, we may have advised you to not book a secluded cabin in the woods, as power is more likely to go out in that type of environment. It is hard to help and properly advise if we do not have the information in advance, as was the case here.
Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience and the unpredictable weather. We thought a refund of the $50 cleaning fee was appropriate for the three hours the electricity was out; I'm not sure how you calculate that half your 3 night trip was ruined. Good luck to you, Pamela.
Lovely and peaceful getaway!
We had a lovely time, just what we were looking for, close to the city, but far enough away to be in the mountains. The cabin is well kept and very private. It was great to hear the waterfall even though we could not actually see it. We stayed in most of the time because of rain but still managed to have a couple of barbecues!
Stunning, picturesque with idyllic views
What an absolutely beautiful cabin in the most breathtaking mountain setting. We kept saying this is exactly the place we would want to own. The decor, the lovely and detailed history, and the attention to detail...not to mention the bath! We loved our stay. The hosts are available and so nice we felt a personal touch on everything. Be mindful with small children - I could hardly relax with the steep mountain edges right outside and a little one running around (we were well aware of the drops in advance.) All in all the most idyllic cabin and location and a great natural food store in town. Wonderful experience we would definitely return.
