“The trail to which we had committed ourselves led us down into Woodland Valley, a retreat which so took my eye by its fine trout brook, its superb mountain scenery, and its sweet seclusion, that I marked it for my own, and promised myself a return to it at no distant day.”

John Burroughs, “The Heart of the Southern Catskills”, 1888

The Woodland Valley Lodge is nestled in the heart of Burroughs’ Woodland Valley – a short two hour drive from New York City and a few mile walk 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 trough 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 home for convenience and comfort. Towels are varying shades so its easy to remember yours on the hooks in the morning. Coffee mugs are letter themed to keep them straight on a cool morning or afternoon. The Lodge is home and better since you're here in the wilderness.

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

Really pretty house - amazing architecture, clean, incredible location. Saw a bear cub cross the road! We spent most of our time down by the stream, so peaceful. Have stayed at 1/2 dozen places in the area over the last 15 years, but this is probably our favorite.
