Comfortable and peaceful time away from busy city life!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderfully relaxing time away from the city at Jeff’s property. He was very friendly and made us feel at home in the tent for the weekend. It has everything you need, as long as you bring your own sleeping bags etc. It’s one of those gems where you feel peace and away from it all while still being close to really nice restaurants and cool Catskill towns. We plan to be back in the fall. Thanks Jeff!
Great place to stay
Site is well cared for, everything there for a comfortable stay. The owner is a great guy and helpful/available if needed. Will be back again - highly recommend this rental
Thx guys. It was my pleasure to share a campfire with you guys. Look forward to hunting season and sharing the camp. stay kool..
nice getaway in the woods
Great for the outdoorsman or woman. Everything was provided, and it was nice not to have to bring any gear. Jeff was more than accommodating, and even started the fire on the wood stove which kept us warm on a chilly winter night. The best feature of this rental is the surroundings.
Exactly what I was looking for- a great getaway but still amenities.
Directions are a bit tricky getting to the camp site but it's worth it and the host was super helpful. Jeffrey had the fires roaring when we got there and even watched the fire while we went into town for supplies.
The heart of the Catskill Mountains, world class fly fishing/hunting, hiking, biking and the great outdoors. micro Brewery's.
