About the property

Log-Style Cabin with a great layout for couples, friends, or families!

The 'Fox Den' Family Cabin is privately located on Panther Mountain, convenient to Belleayre and Hunter Ski Resorts and the charming town of Phoenicia. The fully-equipped Cabin is cozy enough for a romantic couples getaway, yet spacious enough to accommodate a large family or multi-family gathering.

This log-style house offers all the amenities of home in a secluded mountain setting for your perfect vacation getaway.

Kitchen: Fully-equipped with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, gas stove, coffee maker (pot and Keurig), and all the equipment and tools you need to prepare dinner - from simple meals to delicious gourmet feasts! Paper towels, dish soap, trash bags provided.

Sun room: The extra large sun room brings the outdoors indoors! Read a book, play a board game, or enjoy lunch on the indoor porch featuring wrap-around windows, a beautiful mountain view, and direct access to the outside porch.

Bedrooms: 3 private bedrooms (one on the main floor, 2 on the top floor) with individual closets, plus one additional bedroom comprised of the entire lower level, complete with a desk and reading nook. The lower level has double doors that walk out to the outside yard. There is also a king-sized bed in the loft area that can be used as an optional 5th bedroom (although it is not closed off.) Clean, comfortable linens are provided and beds are made fresh for each guest's arrival. Extra linens and blankets are provided.

Bathrooms: 2 full bathrooms, one on the main floor across the hall from the first bedroom, and one on the top floor between the 2 upstairs bedrooms. All towels, hand towels, and washcloths are provided (but make sure to bring beach towels if you plan to do any outdoor activities requiring towels - as all bathroom towels should remain on the property.) Additional amenities include soap, shampoo, and blow dryers.

Family Room: The main gathering room features an open feel and two-story ceiling (the loft area and upstairs hallway over looks it!) The wood-burning fireplace is perfect for cozy evenings and family togetherness. Board games, books, puzzles, movies (DVD and VHS), cable, and WiFi are provided.

Outside: Our fire pit is a great spot for roasting marshmallows and telling scary stories (firewood is provided!) Small porch off of the sunroom with a charcoal grill. Large yard with Badminton and Bocce Ball sets for warm-weather days and sleds for snowy days available.

Other: Washer and dryer available!

Location: The area has so much to offer, all year long! For the adventurous: try hiking, tubing, ziplining, swimming and sunbathing at Belleayre Beach, and skiing at nearby Belleayre, Hunter, and Windham ski resorts. For the curious: visit the many unique shops and antique stores, art shows and local theater events. For the hungry: pick up the freshest local foods from the farmers market and make a meal at the Cabin, or visit the tasty small-town restaurants. We will provide you with a guide and suggestions for every season!

Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with Fox Den Family Cabin in Catskill Mountains near Phoenicia. Cabin was clean and well equipped. There was plenty of room for our three generation party. Dining table expanded and chairs were available, so that all 7 of us could dine together. Our three-year-old granddaughter loved her "play room", especially the tepee. We made use of the outdoor fire circle one night and had small fires in the indoor fireplace the other two nights. We would definitely recommend Fox Den Family Cabin to others.

29th year hiking trip

  • 5 of 5

The Catskills were just perfect for our annual hiking trip. Fox Den Cabin was cozy, well appointed, comfortable and spacious. Our group of eight enjoyed the generous hospitality of Sarah and Jack who offered us the staples in the pantry and fridge. We even baked an apple crisp using apples we picked and a recipe in the cookbook on the shelf. When we got lost in the dark with no GPS service the night we arrived, Jack talked us in by phone.

Beautiful property with great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Fox Den Family Cabin is a perfect getaway location for a family of any size. Plenty of space, great location, and the owners have thought of every detail to make sure their guests feel comfortable. The house has a great layout, it is beautifully furnished but not cluttered, the kitchen is fully stocked with dishware, pots and pans, implements, and appliances. Everything is sparkling clean and guests are provided with helpful instructions so that they may fully enjoy the house as well as the surrounding region. We especially enjoyed the front porch and the sun room. We definitely plan on going back.

The full package

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weekend at the cabin celebrating my father's 70th birthday. We loved the location and the house, especially the yard for camp fires and games of bad mitten, and the porch for reading and chatting.

The beds were all comfortable and we felt like we had enough room for our group of seven adults and three small children. The house was stocked with any supplies we may have forgotten at home, and the owners were readily available by email for any questions or concerns.

I would not hesitate to book again, and would recommend to those that I know.

Relaxing family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Fox Den was exactly what we wanted it to be. The house truly felt like a home that we were able to enjoy for the week. Everything we needed was provided to us, so it was easy to relax. It was like we had a second home, if only for a few days...

Connectivity was great, even if cell phones didn't work, so we were able to connect and plan our days and evening out and about in the area.

Positives - plenty of space (both inside and out), full kitchen, washer and dryer, games, wi fi, peaceful setting

Negative - none really, just watch out for the occasional bear after dark

A Hidden Gem in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

I believe the testament my wife used to describe the property is " You feel as if it's your home." The kitchen is FULLY stocked, with everything you could need to cook all weekend and enjoy the peace and quiet.

You feel the positive energy throughout the house. The place feels very spacious, even with more than one family. We feel fortunate to have found this rental and are already planning on when we can return. Sarah was completely professional with all details you need to know about the property.

I rather not be cliche, but it has it all, cleanliness, spacious, organized, well decorated, well maintained. If you are anything like me and are looking at tons of rentals before booking. STOP, this is the property to choose.
