My wife and I rented the house in the second week of December 2014. The house was perfect.
Barbara could not have been more helpful prior to our arrival. The information she provides you with is
incredibly comprehensive and answers any questions you could possibly have while you're there. The
pictures are real and everything in the ad is real. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there but we
had a great time in the house just cooking and relaxing by the fireplace. We also had our 14 month old son with us and he had a good time too. One thing that was really convenient was the the small farm doors that separate the
different sections of the house so for example we were able to stay in the kitchen and not have to worry about our son
running to the other rooms to explore. We were also able to relax by the fireplace and watch TV in
the living room without having to think about him on the stairs or running into the kitchen. Just close the
farm doors and you can keep an eye on your little one without getting up. It was an added bonus that we
had not even thought about. We plan to go back again before the winter ends. The kitchen is truly stocked
and in good shape. We had everything we needed to prepare our meals and the dishwasher was great to
have. We did get to walk the property a little and it really is amazing. We are hoping it snows next time we go so we
can enjoy the property more. The heat in the house is great and it was really cold weather when we were there. All
together it was a wonderful time and we are happy that Barbara allowed us to rent from her. We feel like we
found a hidden gem. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy cabin feel in a rural setting to get
Away from it all.
Perfect getaway! Our family of four - all adults - enjoyed S'mores in the fireplace, walks along the reservoir nearby, home-cooked meals, and easy access to Woodstock or Phoenicia (be sure to save room for breakfast at Sweet Sue's). Set in a beautiful location, the house is very comfortable, cozy, and the owner has obviously taken a lot of care to provide the conveniences & little touches that make the difference between "good" and "excellent." The house is lovely - clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen really does have just about anything a cook could need! Communication from the owner was excellent, and the information provided was thorough and well thought out. Highly recommend it - a definite encore!!!
Perfect place for 5 people! If you ever imagined that living in a cozy house surrounded with beautiful nature, this is the perfect place. You can see the numerous stars at night, have fun with the fire pit, you can Run, Scream, Dance, Jump and Fly!! It was really relaxing but adventurous trip!
The owner Barbara was more than amazing. She sent me 9pages of DOC file before we heading there, which contains all the details of the house, her property, neighbors and activities to do! It was really helpful. We did not need to plan anything. She was our tour guide! We went there to celebrate my fiancé's birthday and she sent us an amazing CAKE!!!!!! She rocks! (Thank you Bill who brought us the cake and help us to find the directions and taking care of our trash!)
The house is well prepared. It has more than enough towels, sheets, blankets, dishes, pots... nice kitchen, outdoor grill, furnitures, TV, DVD, Books..... Ha! It was an amazing trip!
The property was beautiful, as was inside the house! Perfectly decorated and cozy. All materials (firewood etc) were provided, and the homeowner Barbara was BEYOND nice. She let us stay extra time (for free! during a storm because she was worried about our safety). Cannot thank her enough. Really had the best weekend and will for sure be back!! Highly recommend this getaway.
We had a great mid-week get away in the fine area of Catskill, New York. It was a real nice touch that the property manager called twice, checking to see if we were all set with the firewood and if we required anything. THANKA
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Barbra's cabin. Barbra was incredibly helpful in not only making sure everything was set for our arrival, but also finding activities for us to do.
The cabin itself was cozy and comfortable. It contained everything you need for your stay. It was very clean and you could tell Barbra truly cared about keeping it in shape for her guests.
While we did not leave the property that often, we found everything we needed (groceries, restaurants, skiing) close by.
Great property, great host, and overall a fantastic experience. Cannot wait to come again!
A great place for hikers, bikers, skiers, artists, writers, poets, cooks, bakers or folks wanting to get away for peaceful solitude, or plan a fun vacation with friends. Near all warm weather activities and close to all Catskills ski resorts for snowy winter stays. 15mi. to Woodstock, Phoenicia and many small towns in between!
Other Activities: Rock climbing, skiing, tubing and spas
Golf: Several 4 star rated courses in the area listed on www.golflink.com
Stone Dock ; Wiltwyck ; Alapaha ; New Paltz ; Nevele Grande ; Apple Greens ; Dinsmore
Ski: Belleayre and Hunter are both wonderful day trips from the house. Nestled just about half way in between the two locations, either destination works -or- trying both is fun for mixing things up. Enjoy the scenic drive in the morning and relaxing at the end of the day coming to the full kitchen for fun dinners with friends~
