Here are two reviews for our stay this July.
We drove about 3.5 hours from Brooklyn and stayed at the Andes Cabin Retreat for 7 nights. I loved it! Excellent kitchen tools for cooking and grilling, comfy furniture and beds, 5-speaksound system, gorgeous view. The cabin met my expectations, and the guides written about the the house and the surrounding area were terrific. Michael is a great communicator.
My favorite moments on the deck were:
- my first hummingbird sighting
- a thyme-scented cool breeze
- distant cloud-bursts of lightning over the mountains
- the full moon and very starry skies
- quiet, absolute quiet
- drinking tea and reading for hours
We were 10 minutes from Andes, 5 minutes from water and great hikes. We ate at Two Old Tarts and got ice cream cones from the Andes General Store across the street.We'll be back.
What a special place. The cabin is lovely, comfortable, spacious and super clean. Great sound system. Lounge on the comfortable couch with a book. Bring your yoga mat and do your sun salutations with a stunning view. I did. The kitchen is very well set up whether your making a romantic dinner for two or having a family chow down.
The deck is beautiful. It's shaded with flowering trumpet vine, breezy and the view is gorgeous. Air fragrant with wild thyme and pine, every morning was blissful having tea watching the mist drift off the valley, as goldfinches and hummingbirds darted and called to each other. Evenings were miraculous with vast, starry night skies. Wow. The house is nestled against the mountain and nature is all around you. Rabbits, chipmunks, a stunning grey vixen, raptors, song birds.
Quiet quiet quiet. Real good sleeping.
Pepacton Reservoir is 5 minutes away with trout jumping. Fishing mecca. The awesome Shavertown hiking trail is right there. Or get a fresh doughnut and chew the fat at the Tremperskill store 5 mins away. And if you want a good meal or a beer with folks, the swell town of Andes is 10 minutes away.
