Our cabin is on Pakatakan Mountain 'an Indian name meaning where the sweet grass grows' and is the highest mountain in Delaware county NY. It is a great setting for a romantic getaway, family vacations, outdoor adventures or just time to unwind within the beautiful area of the Western Catskills Mountains! The cabin is on 9 private woodland acres bordering New York State Forest Preserve in Delaware County NY near the town of Arkville 45 miles west of Kingston NY.
Why rent with us over other properties? We feel we offer an up/scale cabin with all the amenities you could ask for in a beautiful private woodland setting at a very reasonable rate. Please read our reviews.
The cabin's in a very private setting with its own driveway. It is the last house on the main road up the mountain. There are no other houses behind the cabin, just thousands of wild forest acres with logging trails and NYS state trail you can explore all day long. Deer, turkey, rabbits, many birds and other forest creatures can often be seen by the Guest house on many occasions.
The guest house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. One features a queen bed and the other a full sized bed. Additionally there is a pull out sofa in the living room with a full sized bed. There one can enjoy watching the fire in the wood burning fireplace insert as one drifts off to sleep.
The cabin also has a large flat screen TV, a nice selection of books and movies as well as board games for you indoor entertainment. In warm months there is small volleyball/bad mitten net set up on grounds and horseshoe pits.
You can do as much outdoor activity as you want or just relax in the cabin and read a book or watch a movie or just create sumptuous meals in the guest house's new large eat in kitchen which contains all the necessities for your cooking and dining pleasure!
Its totally up to you!

Hi, we are Mike & Robin Tanner. After having a weekend getaway house for many years, a time came to leave our busy city lives and professional careers and make a new life and home in the beautiful Catskill mountains of New York. We never regretted this decision.
Robin pursued her interests in becoming a potter and started Loving Earth Studio and sells her wonderful pottery at local stores and crafts shows. I am now retired but quite busy with my outdoor hobbies and taking care of our property.
A few years ago, we acquired a cabin adjacent to our home with its own 9 acre woodland parcel with access to trails to the NYS forest preserve lands and over a year of hard sweat and labor and way over budget, we totally renovated the cabin or as we now call it, The Guest House.?.
From the positive comments we received from friends and relatives who stayed as our guests, we decided to offer it for rent to those wanting to visit the Catskills when not in use.
That is how we began our vacation rental business. Robin and I will do our best to make our 'Guest House' cabin your home away from home for peace and quiet and enjoying the beauty of our wonderful area. !!!

We made our lives here in the Catskill mountain area of New York because of the great natural beauty and energy. The Rental property is located on its own private driveway on 9 acres on the side of Pakatakan Mountain near Margaretville New York In Delaware County.
We have pristine wilderness behind us while we are only 2 miles from the Town of Margaretville which is often mentioned in travel articles as a great low key getaway place with nice shops and a newly built Freshtown grocery store for family shopping. You have a wildness experience while not feeling in isolation. The best of both worlds.
