About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

This secluded one of a kind Catskill Mountain log cabin is 2 hours from the George Washington Bridge. The fully furnished cabin is clean, cozy and airy and is a great place for a family to get away to. The newly renovated kitchen is big and open and perfect for group cooking and gathering. It features a Viking stove with indoor grill, ice cream maker, Meile dishwasher and 2 sinks. The cabin features a wood burning fireplace; dining table big enough for 10; an out of tune piano and six string acoustic guitar; a great collection of both adult and children's books and board games; wireless high speed internet access is available as well as a 36 inch flat screen TV with a DVD player; stereo with multi-disc CD player and iPod jack with indoor and/or outdoor speakers; and a covered front porch. Outside is a fire pit, a fantastic tire swing, a sledding hill in winter, a tree house and a big front lawn, perfect for a football game or snowball fight.
The cabin is surrounded by 20 acres of private, quiet, beautiful woods, full of deer, turkey, squirrels, owls and chipmunks. Take a quiet walk along our babbling Thorpe Creek to the swimming hole or hike up the creek to explore magnificent waterfalls.

In the area- explore hiking trails in the Catskill Mountains, visit Olana - the home of Hudson River artist Frederick Church, shop at nearby organic farm stands, go antiquing in Hudson, visit yards sales, and jump into a local auction. Skiers! We're a 20 minute drive from Windham, 30 minutes from Hunter. Go swimming, fishing, horseback riding, cross country skiing and after, visit local Irish pubs with nightly musical entertainment. This is a perfect place to spend some relaxed time with the ones you love.

Well behaved pets okay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am an artist and Set Decorator for films and TV. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and spent much of my childhood far off the beaten track, in a cabin on a canal, without electricity or running water. I've raised my family in NYC, and spending time at the cabin, off the grid, has given my children the best of both worlds.

Why the Owner Chose East Durham, NY, USA:
We bought our cabin from the man who built it by hand. We've carefully added an amazing kitchen and an all-ply bathroom, making the cabin functional, enjoyable and beautiful, without diminishing the rustic simplicity.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is warm in the winter, and cool in the summer months. It sits on 5 cleared acres surrounded by 20 acres of woods. We love having complete seclusion, outdoor showers, campfires and access to nature. The swimming hole is magical and the creek bordering the property affords hours of exploration. Wildlife is happy and welcomed on our property. We have deer, turkeys, fox, groundhogs, tiny orange salamanders, hummingbirds, owls and geese. We hear the coyotes at night in the summer, but have never seen them.
