Perfect weekend getaway from NYC
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for when we wanted to spend a long weekend outside of the city. The house is in beautiful condition and the views were stunning. We were so comfortable and relaxed that we never felt the need to venture out. Bob and Tracey were very accommodating and flexible, as well as easily accessible if we needed anything. We would absolutely stay there again.
Great Place to Stay
Very Pleased with my stay here. Cabin had an amazing view of the mountains and very quite place.
Upscale Remote Tranquility Done Right!
Excellent host and home! Two things to note: remove your own garbage (not a big deal) and internet access is limited and good for emails and browsing but not streaming or downloading.
Beautiful, remote location with expansive views
The cottage is a lovely, new-built structure with a glorious view out one whole side of the building, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and this was one of our favorite parts of the visit. The pantry was stocked with lots of basics, the refrigerator with condiments, and this is something we definitely appreciate having stayed in places without. There are lots of easy-to-follow instructions for everything from using the lock to stacking the woodstove (which we used once), and the rooms upstairs are cozy while the downstairs is a wide-open floor plan. Overall, it is a beautiful place and the owners kept in touch via text throughout our stay.
One caveat: Renters should be clear about the slightly unusual wi-fi limitations before booking.
Thank you, Randee, for choosing our cottage for your vacation and for taking such great care of our home!
Just a note to expound on the wifi at the cottage: Because of the remoteness of the cottage, the wifi connection is via satellite, which simply means that while basic web-browsing works fine, there are limitations to streaming, meaning Netflix and other movie-streaming sources are not possible. Streaming videos that are short in length, such as a video on facebook, or something like that, is not a problem.
Immaculate & Comfortable
We stayed here for a weekend while in town for a wedding and loved it. The hosts are responsive, and the property is extremely comfortable and well-maintained. It's a short driving distance into the heart of Hobart.
What a beautiful home - even nicer than in the pictures if you can imagine! We were there for a few days last week to celebrate our anniversary and to disconnect from the city. We were looking for a mountain escape that offered a beautiful view - this home really blew us away! When you first walk in - of course you are so taken by the view - you can sit there all day and gaze - so breathtaking. Everything is spotless and clean - and so tastefully decorated. No detail has been overlooked in the house - the well-equipped kitchen really had everything i possibly could have needed; the living room was sooo comfortable and cozy (nice TV, games, books, etc); the bedrooms were so nice - and the beds and linens were very comfortable - plenty of closet space too; the bathrooms were well stocked also - really - there wasn't one thing that we were missing, wanted or needed - it was all there! Plus, no corners were cut - everything in the house - was really nice - from utensils to linens to furniture. The area is lovely - very pastoral and serene - we took at least two rides on mountain roads per day just to appreciate the beauty of the Catskill Mountains. Also - Robert was wonderful with organizing our stay - no detail or question was left to wonder - he was very thorough and a pleasure to work with. We hope to return, and we thank you for allowing us to share a little piece of heaven in your cottage.
