West Kill Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Complete renovation of the cabin was completed less than a year ago. EVERYTHING is new, clean and ready to be enjoyed :-) Brand new well-water system from the ground up (literally!!), all new plumbing, and brand new water heater...
There is 1 bedroom with a Full sized bed, a large and open sitting room with a Full sized futon and a Twin sized fold-away-bed and 1 full bathroom.
The sitting room features a great wood stove that can be left open as a fire place, Hi Def flat screen t.v. with DVD player and connectivity for your laptop/iphone/ipad (you will need to bring your own HDMI adapter for your particular device)
Flowing together with the sitting room is a full sized and complete kitchen (pots/pans, forks/knives, coffee maker...). There is also an outdoor barbecue.
Outside enjoy a large and lightly wooded front yard and endless hiking up the mountain behind the cabin.
About the area:
New York's Catskill Mountains include one of the largest and most complex natural areas in the East - on par with the West's Yellowstone National Park. Round, forested mountains; narrow, winding valleys; rushing streams and rivers are features that attract many to the 600,000 acres of the Catskill Park.
One of the best kept New York State secrets is Bear Spring Mountain Campground, well-known for its excellent hunting and fishing, as well as its facilities for campers with horses. A good multi-use trail system for hiking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling also is available.
The Catskill Fish Hatchery near Livingston Manor is open to the public. Catskill streams offer some of the finest trout fishing in the East.
Among the best known waters are Esopus, Beaverkill and Willowemoc creeks. Each year, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation stocks fingerling and yearling trout throughout the Catskills.
Rolling hills, forested mountains, ponds, streams and historic sites can all be found within the Catskill Park.
Some of the Catskill campgrounds are open in the spring for early fishing and camping, and in the fall for hunting and autumn foliage viewing.
In the high peaks of the Central Catskills, a different kind of ski experience welcomes you: Belleayre Mountain and Forest Preserve skiing.
It's a world of difference. Belleayre Mountain lies in the heart of the Catskill Forest Preserve on 'forever wild' land, unblemished by the blare and glare of commercialization. The mountain and its 33 trails are expertly maintained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

About Jonathan Spanos
I am a musician and lover of the outdoors. I grew up in Long Island NY and have lived for many years in Brooklyn. There's pretty much nothing I like to do more than travel, except for hiking in the woods and quietly relaxing in the mountains.
Jonathan Spanos purchased this cabin in 2009
Why Jonathan Spanos chose West Kill
I bought this property because of its prime location for enjoying anything and everything the Outdoors has to offer us all year round. I wanted to have access to a place of my own to 'get away' from time to time, as well as provide a clean, cozy and affordable place for others to be able to take some time for themselves and breathe the fresh air and drink the clean water of the mountains.
