My wife and I are free lance artists. I am a musician and she is a designer of beach towels. We built this cabin ourselves and put our heart and soul into it. Every detail, down to the bookshelves was done by hand. We travel for work often. The rental of the cabin is our supplemental income. We have two children who have grown up here and it was an ideal childhood environment. We hope you enjoy it.
George purchased this cabin in 2005
The perfect distance away from NYC. The way the property is situated near enough to a local village and far enough into the woods is just right. Also the fact that the stream and pond is here is a big plus for us.
Privacy, the pond, living next to nature, our garden, the frogs at dusk in springtime, cross country skiing or hiking trails..the list is too long.
We are near Howe's Caverns, where you can explore caves or go zip lining, We have several horseback riding facilities close by. As well, farmers markets and organic farms that sell to the public are all around. Behind the property is state land for hunting and hiking. Our family loves to explore the near by waterfalls in the summer and the many cross country skiing trails in the area in winter.
