About Phil and Monique
We have traveled all over and been to a lot of great places and met some great people. We decided that we would build a unique house on an unusual setting,close to everything ,but secluded on it's own piece of land. It would have to have an over the top view, affordable stay and comfortable. Every piece of the puzzle would have to be hand made and would take years to complete. A spacious layout with beautiful furnishings so from the moment you walk in you smile and feel like your home.Quiet , clean and lasting memories. It would also have romance ,charm and a touch of magic ! The cabin is 10 minutes from Kingston and 5 minutes to Woodstock......Perfect location and plenty of restraurants, grocery, wine. shops and anything you may need, on the way with town traffic, just peace and quiet ! Such good fun, Monique and Phil
Phil and Monique purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Phil and Monique chose West Hurley
This house is hand built from craftsman of a different era. Every piece of wood of wood is from the catskills. Hand pegged oak floors Massive 200lb hand carved front door. Spalted maple kitchen, bluestone everywhere. Every thing hand carved and hand peeled.State of the art build, Very comfortable and quiet, but 5 miles from reality.We haveI high speed internet, cable tv and washer and dryer.Great central air and heat .This home was a 3 year build with attention to detail and warmth.Direct south facing.. To access the 8,000 acre Ashokan Reservoir which is a mile away,Google : watershed recreation access permit . It takes a minute to fill out and print a permit and it's free and good for 5 years
What makes this Cabin unique
South facing 70'long deck has best views and privacy .We get a lot of question as to the $1000 security deposit.This house is hand built with great craftsmanship.We worked out a user friendly security deposit with VRBO.All the money is handled by VRBO.Your reservation is completed in two payments.The second payment includes the security deposit. and is not due till 2 weeks before your arrival.If you cancel your stay prior to your arrival the security deposit is refunded within 24hrs.After you departure we check the property that day,if all is well the security is refunded within 24 hrs via VRBO.A email confirming this is sent to you direct from VRBO.This seems to work the best for everybody and we have never had a claim. As questions arise about the new NYS law regarding airb&b's. Cabin On A Cliff has always been owned and operated by the same family. It's registered as a hotel and always has been. Thanks, Phil and Monique

Beautiful Cabin, Incredible Views
The house & property were immaculately maintained - and absolutely perfect for our trip. It had plenty of rustic charm with all the modern amenities you could want. You feel like you're the only people on earth when you stand on the back deck, overlooking the forest without another house in sight. I couldn't recommend it more.
WOW ! Thanks for a great 5 Star review! We love what we do and when we get a review like yours it makes it all the better. Please let us be your hosts soon again, such Good fun, Phil and Monique
Loved it again!
This was our second visit to Cabin on a Cliff and it was just as delightful as the first. It is so peaceful and relaxing with all the amenities and thoughtful touches you could want. The views are beautiful and the cabin is very comfortable (the air conditioning works beautifully). Monique and Phil really have thought of everything. We were lucky enough to catch a thunderstorm over the mountains and it was spectacular!
Lovely and relaxing
I really liked this cabin, the view is great and inside is very tasteful and comfortable as well. And quiet, which is what I was looking for! Particularly enjoyed watching the fireflies under the stars. Hope to return soon!
Peaceful, restful and what a view!
This place is great. Can’t wait to go back. The cabin itself is beautiful and the view is stunning. Sitting out on the deck in the morning and evening was wonderful.
Thank you P & M! We look forward to next time!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 4 at Cabin on a Cliff. The property is breathtaking (that deck view!), the cabin is pristinely maintained (super clean and stocked with high end amenities), and hosts were easy to communicate with. We all worked from home one day and had no WiFi/cell reception issues. Surrounding area was a treat to explore as well - we enjoyed day trips to Woodstock, Kingston & New Paltz. We received word that our deposit would be refunded within just a couple hours of checking out. Definitely book if you’re looking for a relaxing Catskills vacation.
This home is the beautiful blend of complete privacy minutes away from all the Catskills has to offer. Charming home, extremely friendly hosts, amenities galore. This was my second visit but certainly will not be my last!
