Tranquil weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
A very tranquil location on the top of the hill in the Catskills. The cabin was cozy with a large front porch overlooking the a beautiful country garden. The pine wooded bedroom was warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped including cooking spices and seasoning for a country meal. We enjoyed watching our greyhound Jenny run around the fern garden till she's happy and then come up to sit with us on the porch. Bill and Mary was generous to share their vegetable garden with us. We had a fresh out of the garden delicious heirloom tomatoes and basil salad with our dinner one night. They also gave recommendations for nearby hikes. We had a great weekend overall and would recommend the cabin for a couple or two for a tranquil country weekend.

Wonderful Labor Day weekend

  • 4 of 5
Comfortable and clean cabin on the top of the hill. Well maintained by the owners with an equipped kitchen full of utensils and spices for a country meal. The pine wood bedroom has tall cathedral ceiling that made it warm and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching our greyhound Jenny run around the fern garden till she got tired. We also enjoyed walking out toward the vegetable garden to admire the variety of fresh vegetables growing. Bill and Mary were very generous to offer the garden to us. We picked a few heirloom tomatoes and basils one night for the most delicious tomato salad. They also gave recommendations for nearby day hikes where we had a wonderful lunch by the roaring brook. The cabin was quite remote. we heard coyotes howling every morning, which I welcome over the sound of my alarm clock any day. It was a great relaxing weekend trip for the three of us to remember.

Peaceful, private and beautifully rustic!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the cabin for a long weekend of concerts at Bethel Woods. the cabin was the perfect retreat for us. the location was truly " away from it all", which is exactly what we wanted. the cabin was more beautiful than I expected , with the high pine ceilings and skylight, and comfortable porch overlooking a forest of ferns. it was so peaceful, I had the best sleep in a really long time! We enjoyed biking nearby, but were also content just sitting on the porch. I. highly recommend this cabin for a quiet, peaceful weekend getaway!

Perfectly Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Nestled in the beautiful mountain forests around Claryville, NY, our stay at the “fern forest cabin” was delightful, peaceful, quiet, and relaxing--or in just one word: bliss. The cottage itself is very clean, comfortable, and beautifully constructed. The kitchen has plenty of pots and pans and there is a great charcoal grill and bonfire pit outside. The bedroom is full of light, and comes equipped with a wood burning stove – perfect to use for a cool autumn night. The newly screened in porch was a great place for noshing and eating meals while enjoying the beautiful ferns and trees outside. The front porch is also magnificent and offers splendid views. The gardens are lovely and exquisitely maintained. We enjoyed talking walks in the area, buying pottery at Claryville Pottery, and light meals at Eureka Market and Café and the Blue Hill Café. Bill and Mary could not have been more helpful in getting us there and ensuring that all of our needs were taken care of. They provided lots of information about the surrounding area and hikes to check out, but when it came down to it, our favorite part was just doing nothing while enjoying our time at the cottage and taking in the immediate surroundings. We will surely be back.

If you would like to take a break from the noise of the rest of the world, this is the perfect place for you!

Peaceful rustic cabin on beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
We had a very peaceful weekend in this rustic cabinet located on a beautiful secluded property. Beautiful bright green ferns all around and beautiful gardens. We very much enjoyed the wood burning fire pit and grill and cooking in the nice size kitchen. Bill, the owner, was very friendly and accesible in emails to coordinate our arrival. Bottom line: this is a great property if you are looking for something that feels like it is in the heart of the woods and where you can only hear the sounds of nature. We will definitely return!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, as well as another couple wanted a last minute weekend outside of NYC. Parsing through the various options on Homeaway, it was pretty difficult to narrow it down to something that was away from it all, but also not so far away that we couldn't pick up items we forgot without a 45 minute drive.

This location was perfect. We didn't hear or see any other people from the property, yet there was a general store in town which cooked some basic hot food/sandwiches as well as beer/wine and some other basic provisions.

The photos do not really do the house justice - it is lovingly maintained and has plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing. The fire pit and ample wood were a great bonus, as were the tons of pots and pans as well as spices for cooking/preparing food. The shower had great water pressure and plenty of clean towels. To a city kid, it felt like we were camping in the middle of nowhere with the benefit of being able to sleep in a nice house instead of a tent.

If you are two couples and want more privacy, the studio is a short walk away and has a comfortable bed and high ceilings - it was perfect for us.

The screened in porch was great to sit in and watch a morning rain shower and we made good use of both the front and back deck chilling and stairing off into the fern forrest and listening to the sounds of nature.

Bill provided excellent driving directions to the house, which would have been nearly impossible to find without his directions.

He left us some maps of the area, suggested a few hikes and also told us about the local swimming hole (which was awesome) so we could cool off. Really nice option to have and less than 10 minutes away.

He was responsive to all of our emails and questions, was very easy to deal with and promptly refunded the security deposit upon finding the house in good condition.

This was an ideal weekend and we will be back, hopefully for a few extra days to explore the area.

DINING

• It’s always fun to share news of a new endeavor that reflects the hard work and creativity of its daring entrepreneurs, and Rolling River Café Gallery and Inn, in Parksville (25 Cooley Rd) is a great recommendation. Their bijou restaurant features fresh fare prepared and served by Rob and Kim Rayevsky and their daughter Miriam, in a fun, friendly atmosphere that has everyone I’ve sent, returning almost immediately. Their outdoor seating, with strings of lights through the trees and charming café tables (including a private, romantic spot along the river), has a European feel, and is so alluring you’ll want to bring your fleeces and extend the season as long as possible. Make reservations as they only have about a half a dozen tables. Open Wed-Sun beginning at noon. They also have Wi-Fi. Directions: Take Frost Valley Road, then left up onto Round Pond Road. Follow that for about 25 minutes and it’s right before the light at the entrance to Route 17. (Along the way the road forks, stay left toward “Parksville”).

• Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room: The best “local” restaurant is in Big Indian (it’s a remarkably beautiful 30 minute drive down the Frost Valley Road to Route 28. Go left and it’s about 1 mile on the left). Owners Devin and Marybeth Mills have renovated an old farmhouse into an inspired space of wood, glass and intriguing and playful artwork. The food is simply outstanding (not surprising given their experience at Picholine and Le Bernadin), and they make an effort to use local growers and the freshest ingredients available. Open Thurs-Mon, 4-10pm.

• The Catskill Harvest Market also has a cute eatery, where you can nosh on divine sandwiches, etc. On Route 52 between Liberty & White Sulphur Springs.

•Eureka Cafe in Grahamsville has great dishes, pizza and gourmet supplies

ENTERTAINMENT

• There are concerts held 30 minutes away at the new Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located on the site of the famous 1969 concert. This is an exquisite outdoor concert venue with spectacular farmland views, and now a new museum dedicated to the concert.

• Good for rainy day fun, there is a roller rink in Ferndale, which is near Liberty. I hear it’s a real trip back to the 70s with fun for the whole family. Skaters World Roller Rink, 1234 Old Route 17.

SHOPPING

• Anne-Marie Kremer at Claryville Pottery offers a fabulous array of vases, plates, mugs, and bowls in various finishes and glazes. She’s past the post office and just down the road on the left on the way out of town, she hangs out an “Open” flag when she’s there, but feel free to knock on her door even if it’s not out. Well worth a stop.

• Antiquing: Hamilton’s, which you pass on the way to the house (on the left) in Neversink. Coming from the house go down the hill then go right. It’s soon after the sign for Superior Lumber, on the right. Grahamsville has Half Moon Antiques on the main drag on the left.

SPA

• The New Age Health Spa is just minutes down the road in Neversink, and offers half day and full day programs for non-guests, which include massage, facials, yoga, reflexology, seaweed wraps, pilates and more.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

• Frost Valley YMCA is a magnificent facility for outdoor pursuits for adults and children (fly fishing, canoeing, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, etc). Check out their website for calendars of activities. Or better yet, call them. As a Claryville “resident”, half day use is something like $10, including lunch, full day $15!

• Mongaup Pond (125 acre pond, about 15 minutes away) has boat rentals, swimming, fishing, etc during the summer months. There are a number of NY State hiking trails that head off to Frick Pond and other destinations. Also have activities for children.

• Use of tennis courts at Grahamsville town park (you’ll see little covered bridge at entrance) is free.

FISHING

• The Neversink is mostly private fishing, but ten minutes’ drive you have the Willowemoc, which is outstanding, and 25 minutes, the famous Beaverkill. If you have interest in a very professional, licensed fishing guide who knows the area like the back of his hand, please ask. Rick Miller is a gifted instructor (I know from personal experience) and has all the gear, too, if you don’t.
