About Clearwater Cabin
We live in NYC and needed an escape from the hectic life amongst concrete, so after years of searching we bought this stunning cabin property. Shortly thereafter life took over as it tends to do! We were moved abroad, and we want to share this lovely place with others in need of the serenity it gave us :) We are happy to share it with you!
Clearwater Cabin purchased this House in 2014
Why Clearwater Cabin chose Livingston Manor
This property is a unique blend of indoor creature comforts and outdoor nature at its best. The cabin is casual, you don't feel nervous coming in wet or sandy, but its also finished more upscale than most catskill properties. We also provide as many amenities as possible, so that guests can arrive with as little as they would pack for a hotel stay. The outdoor property is not overly manicured, we left it a bit wild and rustic to really be able to feel being in the natural outdoors. We love that kids can play around the house in the front or back lawn, also in the woods (where all the best adventures happen!) or by/in the lake. These various outdoor environments help them to never bore of being outside, much more entertaining than a single manicured lawn. The lake itself is unique as well - it is small and does not allow motor sports, so the quiet clean water is particularly nice for kids swimming. This lake is spring fed (=VERY clean water) with a sandy bottom instead of a muddy bottom. Our property borders a very shallow section of lake edge, so the depth is between 1-4ft for about 15 yards out into the water before it slopes to a nearly 50 foot max depth. So kids can easily & safely play at our waters edge no matter what age... its perfect for toddlers to splash around while standing safely.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Ideal quick winter getaway :)
Such a great escape for the kids, and us parents! Beautiful & relaxing, we can’t wait to come back :)
Beautiful, dreamy cabin in charming town
The house is absolutely beautiful, and has everything you could need and imagine. Very comfortable beds, tasteful decoration, and stunning forest and lake in your own backyard. Owner was lovely and very communicative/helpful. Only downside for us was the lack of high-speed internet. That said, definitely recommend and am coming back to this property!
Our favourite Catskills experience!
This was our second stay at this charming property, first time in the winter season and we might prefer it! - falling in love with the ease of a trip to this home for some relaxation and nature. It has really improved our ability to cope with the NYC race, we look forward to our next stay.
Ultimate relaxation !!
We needed a break and wow did this place nail it ! Spacious, comfortable and airy interiors, Beds & linens so nice you want to stay in them all morning, big & well supplied kitchen, gameroom basement for the wild child, a large outdoor area with room to roam & explore nature, and a picturesque lake to boot... our family really loved this place. I already miss my morning coffee on the deck....We will be back!
Catskills Perfection - the ultimate family zen zone!
Our family keeps returning to this cabin as the choice spot to relax and catch up - I plan to get back again soon!

We have been back to Clearwater cabin regularly and love it more each time :) it’s become our go-to escape and with all the hot new places in Livingston Manor we find more to do every time we return. Can’t wait for the next visit!
