This is a beautiful, very well maintained and equipped log cabin at a really remote location in the Catskills. If you would like to be completely disconnected from the outside world, this is the best rental for you!
We rented this cabin for our family vacation for 5 people and it was very comfortable for our family.
When we selected this cabin for our family vacation the amenities still listed Internet access. This has been corrected since as there is no Internet access at this place.
We also chose this place because it has an outside fire pit, but we were notified 2 days before our arrival that the outside fire pit can only be used by the owner. Please note that due to the cancellation policy we could not do anything at the time of this notification.
Please also note that the outside fire pit is still included in the general description of this property, and due to Department of Environmental Conservation rules only the owner can use it!
Please also be advised that there is no Verizon cellphone coverage at this cabin, you need to drive about a half hour either way (to Margaretville or to Livingston Manor) if you'd like to use your cellphone.
There is a wired phone for emergencies and satellite TV (Dish Network) with a limited selection of channels for electronic entertainment available.
Once we got over the initial surprises about the lack of Internet, no cell coverage and prohibited outside bonfires, we still had a good time, it was just not exactly what we planned for our week away in the woods.
We tried various hiking trails and the kayak rentals at the South end of the reservoir and we enjoyed all of them very much!
For eating out we recommend Summerfields in Margaretville and The Arnold House in Livingston Manor.
I also would like to thank the property management for returning our security deposit in full and very promptly after our departure!
Enjoy your stay at this beautiful place!
