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.
Multi generational dream holiday
My family along with dad and children had the most amazing time at the Clearwater Cabin! The house was amazing and the property was so special that everyone from ages 9 through 90 absolutely loved it! We made fires each night, sat on the deck and enjoyed countless hours by the lake. It was truly a magical place and we can’t wait to go back!!
Very nice rental
This rental was very nice. The town was really sweet. We did find that a lot of hikes were about 1 hour away and restaurants were closed until Thursday evening in some parts of N.Y.
Wonderful setting for our daughter’s 30th birthday
We had a fabulous weekend here. Everything was comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The kids loved the playroom (as did the adults when it rained!). Overall wonderful.
We loved staying at the cabin. The house was roomy enough for our group of ten and provided plenty to do both in the house and in the surrounding towns.
Our Memorial Day experiences
Lauren’s property was clean well maintained and she was a great host. The house was well
Stocked and there was plenty to do both at home and around. Overall I would recommend it
Beautiful house and property!
This property and house are absolutely gorgeous. There’s a great grove with walking trails that lead to and from the lake, the fire pit is huge and accommodate a large crowd and the house has every amenity you could imagine! The surrounding area is full of great hikes and fishing spots, but you can fish right in the lake! We took the canoe and kayak out but it was still a little too cold for the fish to be biting but the lake is crystal clear and peaceful. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway (with or without kids. The house is set up with games in the basement and also has children’s toys available in the loft) then this is the place for you! Thank you John and Lauren!
