Overview

About the property

Charming 2-bedroom country cottage with gorgeous mountain views from every room, located in the Western Catskills. Open floor plan downstairs containing living area with satellite TV (including HBO), dining area, kitchen, and a half bath. Both bedrooms located upstairs along with full bath and separate laundry center. The 300 sq ft deck faces dramatic mountain views. Cottage is new construction -- everything is immaculately clean and in perfect working condition -- with an aesthetic mix of rustic and contemporary touches throughout, such as wide plank pine floors, reclaimed barn board walls, state-of-the-art appliances and custom built cabinetry with soapstone countertops. Free wifi throughout the house.

The cottage is located on a quiet country road, 2 miles outside the quaint village of Hobart, 'The Used Bookstore Capital of Upstate NY,' where you will find several antiquarian and used bookstores, antique shops and much more.

Upscale Remote Tranquility Done Right!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

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.

Quiet and Very Clean Upstate Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage with my husband and 6 year old daughter for a weekend in the summer. It's very clean and the view from the porch is amazing. Everything in the cottage feels new and modern but still has a relaxed feel that you want in a vacation home. The kitchen had everything we needed to make delicious meals and the house is close to tons of farm stands and markets. From the porch we saw geese, turkey, and deer in the fields across the quiet country road. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this place is perfect. We will definitely be back!
