TAKE A BREAK...Watch the change of seasons from our Log Cabin in gorgeous Woodland Valley. Step onto a huge wrap porch and deck that you may enjoy the cool breeze, take in nature and the beautiful mountain views.
Cabin is filled with charm throughout. High vaulted ceilings in living room with 2 skylights. Open kitchen and living area so makes it fun to gather and make a great meal, play games or just 'chill'. 2 spacious bedrooms, each with 2 windows to feel the breezes blow. Enjoy playing a game of pool, ping pong, darts or board games downstairs in the basement. The wood burning fireplace completes this 'a little slice of heaven'. Drop off your skis, hiking boots, or mountain bike...just kick back and relax.
Fabulous Catskill Mountain location, minutes from the town of Phoenicia, Woodstock, Hunter Mountain and Belleyre ski resorts. Just one mile from the village of Phoenicia where you can obtain a fishing license, have pancakes at 'Sweet Sue's' or enjoy sitting with Davy Crockett at Brios while you are enjoying the best brick oven pizza around.
Ski or hike this winter. Minutes to both!! RELAX,REGROUP, AND REBOOT YOUR SENSES!!
I've rented this cabin several times and can't recommend it enough! It's a lovely cabin, and features a large covered deck with a grill, tables rocking chairs etc. (I've even enjoyed Summer dinners there while it was raining outside!) It's just a couple of minutes drive to Phoenicia, 15-20 minutes to Woodstock, close to great restaurants and a lot of the cool stuff that the Catskills has to offer. Also, a great stream for swimming & tubing (tubing rental place is right in Phoenicia) There's also a great swimming hole in the stream about a 10 minute walk from the cabin that really is quite lovely. The owners are also very cool. When we found that we could actually stay longer, I contacted them asking if it was possible, they got back immediately, we made arrangements, and our vacation got an extra day! I'm sure I'll be coming back again. Highly recommended!!
This is a great cabin. We stayed for a few days that were unfortunately very wet and cold, so we didn't get to hang outside of the cabin. But that made the fact that the owners appointed the cabin so well all the more important. Lots of clean linens, towels, etc.; magazines and games; cooking equipment, glass and silverware; etc. It's too bad we didn't get to stay outside, because the cabin has a very large porch that is comfortable. Everything was immaculate. The shower was warm and strong (nothing I hate more than a weak shower). There is a lake with benches and a little dock by the house. It would have been great to relax by, had the weather cooperated.
The only caveats I might add is that there are other houses/cabins nearby, so you're not isolated in the woods, if that's important to you. And, if you're going when it's cold out, the basement with the pool and ping-pong tables, will also be cold. My kids wanted to play pool but the basement was too cold. There is a wood stove in the basement, but it wasn't worthwhile to build a fire just to play a little pool.
15 minutes from Woodstock, and 2 minutes from the great little town of Phonecia.
Finally, the owners are incredibly nice people and easily reachable.
We spent 4 wonderful days at this cabin during the Christmas break. I can only emphatically confirm the other positive reviews. The cabin is charming -- with infinite thoughtful and lovely decorating touches. Every room has soaring ceilings, which gives the cabin a truly expansive feel.
Every room was also spotless, and the entire cabin appears to be either new, or newly renovated. The kitchen is very well stocked.
The ping pong and pool tables were a huge plus.
The owners were attentive, and gracious. The house also included, gratis, some of items that one always forgets to buy or bring, but are so essential -- including paper towels. The house is about 20 minutes to the Belleayre skiing area, around 30 or less to Hunter.
Raves for every aspect of this house!
My husband, teen sons, large furry dog and I had a wonderful time in Jackie and Paul's cabin. We wandered the snowy fields, skied and warmed our bellies with Sweet Sue's pancakes. It was the perfect combination of privacy (teenage boys) and family time, with nightly board games in front of the wood stove. The house was not wanting for anything and the beds and bed linens were extra wonderful. The basement with ping pong and pool was heavily used and the large furry dog had lots of room to chase her ball. We hope to visit in all of the seasons!
This lovely cabin is all that Jackie and Paul's description says it is but so much more. The pictures show each room accurately but it's even better when you walk in and see it all together. Conveniently located in these beautiful mountains and an easy drive to many surrounding attractions, including the cute little town of Phoenicia. The setting is serene and could not be any quieter. The porch is hard to leave to go inside in the evening. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, everything works and the entire place is very clean. Too bad that we live so far away and would have difficulty coming back often. However, our son, who lives in NY says that he will be coming back. We totally enjoyed our stay!
Cabin implies basic and it's a lovey rustic home with practically everything you need for a home from home vacation. The queen bed was SO comfortable and we spent most evenings under the covered porch relaxing. It was a great location for hikes etc and we made great use of the grocery store in Boiceville (on the way on rte 28) and the local farm stands which were great. Jackie and Paul were very responsive and checked in to see we were all set and give local suggestions which were very welcome. Highly recommended.
