About the area:

New York's Catskill Mountains include one of the largest and most complex natural areas in the East - on par with the West's Yellowstone National Park. Round, forested mountains; narrow, winding valleys; rushing streams and rivers are features that attract many to the 600,000 acres of the Catskill Park.

One of the best kept New York State secrets is Bear Spring Mountain Campground, well-known for its excellent hunting and fishing, as well as its facilities for campers with horses. A good multi-use trail system for hiking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling also is available.

The Catskill Fish Hatchery near Livingston Manor is open to the public. Catskill streams offer some of the finest trout fishing in the East.

Among the best known waters are Esopus, Beaverkill and Willowemoc creeks. Each year, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation stocks fingerling and yearling trout throughout the Catskills.

Rolling hills, forested mountains, ponds, streams and historic sites can all be found within the Catskill Park.

Some of the Catskill campgrounds are open in the spring for early fishing and camping, and in the fall for hunting and autumn foliage viewing.

In the high peaks of the Central Catskills, a different kind of ski experience welcomes you: Belleayre Mountain and Forest Preserve skiing.

It's a world of difference. Belleayre Mountain lies in the heart of the Catskill Forest Preserve on 'forever wild' land, unblemished by the blare and glare of commercialization. The mountain and its 33 trails are expertly maintained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

About Jonathan Spanos

I am a musician and lover of the outdoors. I grew up in Long Island NY and have lived for many years in Brooklyn. There's pretty much nothing I like to do more than travel, except for hiking in the woods and quietly relaxing in the mountains.

Jonathan Spanos purchased this Cabin in 2009

Why Jonathan Spanos chose Lexington

I bought this property because of its prime location for enjoying anything and everything the Outdoors has to offer us all year round. I wanted to have access to a place of my own to 'get away' from time to time, as well as provide a clean, cozy and affordable place for others to be able to take some time for themselves and breathe the fresh air and drink the clean water of the mountains.

                                                        Our second trip to the cabin. We love it here.

                                                        Perfect place to get away. Great location. Cabin has a great vibe. We will stay here again.

                                                        Cozy cabin

                                                        Rebecca M.

                                                        The fireplace was awesome! We enjoyed our stay, though it's somewhat unexpected to bring our own linens.

                                                        wonderful cabin in the woods off the grid

                                                        EchoBrooklyn, NY

                                                        well-appointed, kept clean, homey and cozy.

                                                        a few things:

                                                        - using both the heater and the fireplace made us too hot. i would advise using one or the other as the small place heats up quickly.

                                                        - there is no wifi and no cell phone reception - this could be a problem for some, but it wasn't for us.

                                                        - there are no sheets, towels and pillowcases provided - you'll have to bring your own. we mis-read and brought extra blankets and towels, but we made it work (used our blankets as a sheet over both bed & pillow and used provided blankets and our blankets for a duvet.)

                                                        - the owner provided us with information about hiking and groceries nearby in addition to everything we would need to access the cabin. everything was so helpful. thank you.

                                                        - there are no toiletries such as shampoo/conditioner, soap, etc - remember to bring your own. there is handwash though for the bathroom sink.

                                                        - good supply of paper towels, toilet paper in the pantry. we didn't need it but it was good to know it was there just in case!

                                                        thanks for the stay in your home - it was perfect for us.

                                                        Great relaxing spot

                                                        Hugh S.

                                                        Comfortable and peaceful cabin, will visit again if possible.

                                                        Perfect. Exactly as described.

                                                        This was perfect. Relatively close to all and was very clean and cozy. I gave 4 out of 5 rather than five just because I wish they had wifi. When contacting friends and family we had to drive 5 min down the road to get service. I would highly recommend and book again if needed.

                                                        Location

                                                        Lexington, NY, USA

                                                        Great location for skiers, only about 20 minutes to all 3 area resorts: Hunter Mountain, Windham Mountain and Belleyare Mountain. Hiking, fishing, hunting, swimming all right out the front door. The cabin sits within the Catskill State Park, so it's all right outside! Just walk uphill behind the cabin to find hiking trails and hunting grounds, or across rt. 42 to find a river to swim and fish in. (There is a GREAT hike who's trail head is off of Spruceton Road, 2 minutes south on rt. 42) A little further out, take a short drive to any of the many reservoirs in the area for a day hike or picnic. To see the beauty of Autumn in the Catskills, just look out the window or sit on the porch...the cabin faces the broad side of Halcott Mt. heavily wooded and bright with color in the fall. For restaurants, shopping, antiquing, craft fairs and festivals, take a drive to nearby Windham and Tannersville to the North, or Phoenicia and Woodstock to the Southeast.
