The Woodland Valley Lodge is nestled in spectacular Woodland Valley – a short two hour drive from New York City and just down a two lane road to one of America’s coolest towns, Phoenicia. Mark it as your own and visit us soon.

The Lodge is among the finest accommodations of the Catskills. A 1920’s craftsman fishing lodge with all the warmth and charms of a stone fireplace, wood beamed ceilings and douglas fir floors, but fully updated with the modern comforts of home.
The Main Lodge room has two leather sofas in front of a river stone fireplace which is constructed from Woodland Valley brook stones. The Lodge bedrooms and dining room are themed on the great western US National Parks, and of course on New York’s own Catskills Park. Yellowstone (1872) and Rainier (1899) are downstairs off of the Main Lodge room, and each sleeps two in queen beds. Glacier (1910) is upstairs and also sleeps two in a queen bed, while Yosemite (1890) is across the hallway and sleeps four in twin beds. There is a separate complete bathroom on each floor. The Library / TV room, also located off of the Main Lodge, is another cozy spot to sit and read on a leather sofa there with your feet on the ottoman. The Catskills (1894) dining room, is at the back of the ground floor past the kitchen and breakfast table. In the Catskills room you’ll enjoy views of the Woodland Valley on three sides as you sit at the stone topped dining table or in twin lounge chairs listening to the bucolic bubbling of the Woodland Valley trout brook.
The kitchen is well fitted with modern appliances and is waiting for your culinary touches, or if you choose a break from cooking the wonderful restaurants nearby include Brios, Alamo Cantina, Sweet Sue’s on Main Street in Phoenicia, Tavern 214 just around the corner on Hwy 214, or the Phoenicia Diner and Peekamoose nearby on Hwy 28.
The scenery surrounding the Lodge is spectacular and just outside your door. Mountains are on all sides. Watch deer with their fawns below you from the Catskill room as you drink your morning coffee. Fish for rainbow and brown trout, or enjoy a refreshing swim in the brook. Hike or showshoe the many nearby trails. Sit around the firepit at night in Adirondack chairs listening to the wood crackle and the brook passing just feet away.
The Lodge brings the US National Parks to you two hours from the city. Come spend some time - relax and energize with nature all around you.
We rented properties in the Catskills for years and through trial and error (some bad rental choices) fell in love with the Woodland Valley. Woodland Valley has the best combination of incredible natural beauty as well as being near small town Phoenicia when you need culture. When we found the Lodge, we fell in love instantly. It is heaven - two hours from NYC and on Burroughs' famed Woodland Valley trout brook!
The Lodge is themed on the US National Parks. You'll find framed antique postcards in every room and National Park themed Pendleton blankets on the beds.
We've set up the Lodge for convenience and comfort. Towels are varying shades so its easy to remember yours when you use it again. Coffee mugs have bold letters on them that spell out 'THE LODGE' to keep them straight on a cool morning or afternoon. The Lodge is home and better since you're here in the wilderness.
The Woodland Valley Lodge was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better fit for our party of six adult siblings celebrating a Birthday. The home was a perfect mix of old charm and modern amenities. We were in awe of the space from the minute we walked through the door. No surprise - everything was as stated in the description. Comfortable cozy beds, well equipped kitchen, super clean, and lots of room for all. We had planned on eating out our first night but decided to eat in because we were so comfortable and didn't want to leave the house. We enjoyed a long walk up the road, exploring the backyard stream, drives through neighboring towns, as well as the charming village of Phonecia. Our two night stay seemed to last so much longer because we were so relaxed and comfortable! The owners are extremely thoughtful hosts and were quick to respond to any questions I had when booking the property. This is definitely a home I would hope to rent again!
Had a great time with family and friends this weekend (all 10 of us). The Lodge is very cool and comfortable. The kids loved playing in the creek. We all hiked some beautiful mountain trails nearby. There's a nice little yard for playing games (e.g. cornhole). The firepit made for some fun nights with our acoustic instruments. I enjoyed some fly fishing, but didn't catch anything. And the nearby Phoenicia business district kinda feels like something out of Twin Peaks, but in a good way. Anyway, thanks for a great time and hope to be there again next year.
My husband and I stayed here with friends over the 4th of July week, and what an amazing place! Initially I was concerned with it's proximity to the road (we have a 6 yr old boy), but perhaps 3 cars passed during our very quiet stay. And the very best part of the house is the back yard away from the road, complete with a fire pit and the Esopus - we couldn't have asked for more.
Just as described, the inside of the home is well appointed and very comfortable. My only suggestions are minor - nicer pillows, more fans and more screens on the windows. Many windows couldn't be opened (too many bugs) and we would have enjoyed more of the lovely breezes. And perhaps better kitchen knives for any chefs out there.
We'd definitely recommend this home. Kevin was very easy to work with and answered any questions we had quickly. He even handled a false alarm (a friend's 2 yr old played a bit with the house alarm buttons) with a sense of humor and total understanding (apologies again, Kevin!)
Listening to the creek at night, sitting around the fire making smores, enjoying time with friends - we'll be back for sure! Thanks, Kevin!
We loved our experience at the Woodland Valley Lodge. It was spacious, clean, quiet, and tasteful. Most of all, it is very well run and cared for. The beds are amazingly comfortable. It has a great view of the stream below. Our group of nine (ages 20's-70's) had many early morning and late night conversations around the table in the Catskill Dining Room. The Lodge is much bigger than it looks, and people can be in one part of the house and not bother others who are resting or reading. We took advantage of several of the hikes the area has to offer such as Otter Falls, and hope we can come back someday to this very special place.
The Woodland Valley Lodge was great, bringing back happy memories. My family spent every summer in a rustic cabin not far away and my brother still owns a home near Windham, NY so we already have a deep affection for the area.
The lodge was charming, deceivingly large, relaxing and very comfortable. The modern amenities and appliances were great. We especially loved the tree house feel of the breakfast/dining room. The Adirondack chairs in the back were great too. I got to read many chapters of my book with the magical sounds of the creek behind me.
My family had a tremendous time and look forward to returning to this special place. The booking process very easy and the owners answered our questions promptly.
Thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful Woodland Valley in a wonderful lodge that harkened to days past! Light bright kitchen and dining area overlooking the creek made our mornings while we were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the rushing water! Property is as beautiful as described. We came to Phoenicia for biennial re-union and We definitely scored the best rental in Phoenicia! Enjoyed early morning walks on WV road, easy access to Catskills hikes, Esopus tubing, Sweet Sues and Phoenicia Diner. Definitely will try to rent again
