Sweet, secluded one-room schoolhouse in the hills outside Andes, NY. Cozy house, trickling stream, sparkling pond. Relax on the deck near the old apple tree. Hike in the gloriously green woods, swim in one of the nearby recreational pools or ponds, relax, stargaze, dream, smile! Grill steaks or veggies on the big Weber and eat on the deck under blue sky or big, shady umbrella. There's also a chef-equipped kitchen and a fire pit on the property for weenie and marshmallow roasts. A queen bed sleeps two in a bright lofted bedroom, filled with art. Start your novel at the writer's desk, curl up on the comfy sofa or the outside chaise and read a book. The home is equipped with wireless internet and has local phone service but no cable TV or cell service - a perfect excuse to play hooky from the world! The town of Andes, 2.5 hours from the George Washington Bridge, and neighboring hamlets, offer farmers' markets, shops, restaurants, yoga classes and lots of charm. This schoolhouse rocks!
The area:: You'll be just minutes outside of Andes - a wonderfully gentrified village with unique shopping and dining, a summer farmers' market, sparkling town pool and newly surfaced tennis courts. The house is a short drive from Margaretville, Delhi or Hamden, offering easy access to local farmers' meats and vegetables, a whole foods market, and lots more shopping and recreation, including a golf course and Catskill Park hiking trails. Just down the hill, the East Branch of the Delaware River boasts great fishing and kayaking.

Included are fresh linens, high-speed wireless internet access, local phone, hot and cold water, lighting, electric heat and firewood. Pets are welcome.

We enjoyed every minute! We found the driving directions exacting and everything in the house fit our needs wonderfully. The house was lovely and lovingly equipped with all of the supplies that we could have needed, and the directions and phone numbers were reassuring since, in our case, a snowstorm was predicted.
The directions for the wood burning stove were wonderful and I lit my first fire in a wood burning stove without hesitation and proudly enjoyed it!
The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for a cozy weekend. We brought all of our food up from the city and didn't need to shop, although we went into Margaretville on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed the extensive beer selection at the Supermarket!
The loft bedroom was charming and very comfortable. The bathroom was also fun. Because we own a 110 year old house we appreciated and enjoyed every nuance that we found at the schoolhouse and because we are both teachers, the ambience had even more charm for us.
The little Christmas tree delighted us especially because we knew we wouldn't be together for the holidays. Thank you for all of the time and care you put into restoring the schoolhouse and for making it into a lovely retreat that you are willing to share.
We look forward to another stay sometime down the road.
The old schoolhouse is a perfect getaway for two people. The house has everything that you need for a relaxing time away. It's super clean and decorated out of a magazine. It's secluded enough so you don't see your neighbors, but it's less than 10 minutes to Andes, where you can grab a meal, or even a drink and play a game of pool at the hotel bar. We loved that there was firewood provided as there were no places in Andes to purchase it, so that was very helpful. It's so perfect, it made us want to own a place of our own just like it. I look forward to coming back in the winter months to enjoy the wood burning fire. We saw so many stars!
My fiance and I have stayed at this adorable and peaceful house multiple times. We just can't get enough! The views from the property itself and the surrounding trails are astounding. Carole is always super polite and helpful with setting up our stay. She is quick with her replies and answers all our questions thoroughly. We love love LOVE this place!
Stayed for two nights with my boyfriend and our dog. Schoolhouse was exactly as pictured. Cozy, comfortable, and very secluded. Loved taking the gravel road into the forest. Laid out at night and saw thousands of stars. Carole was extremely responsive and helpful. Would love to stay here again one day. Thanks Carole!
I'm not one to write many reviews but this little schoolhouse absolutely calls for one! It is cute, cozy and stocked with all the necessities. The decor is adorable and the scenery cannot be beat.
Carole is a delight- is quick to respond to emails and calls. Will always answer questions and try to work with you if any issues arise. She also complies all sorts of FAQ/information that you will ever need during your stay which was super helpful and appreciated.
Can't recommend it enough. I hope to return soon!
We stayed in the Apple a Day cabin for a weekend as part of our 3 week honeymoon road-trip across 9 states. I was very excited about arriving (because of the photos I'd seen online) and wasn't disappointed.
We did explore the local area, but took most enjoyment from just locking ourselves away from the world at the cabin. The dappled light coming through the trees and the secluded location made for a beautiful, relaxing couple of nights.
The cabin which is tastefully decorated with eclectic art is the perfect spot to enjoy good food, a few beers, peace and quiet, a cosy sofa for reading and good company.
The place is so well stocked with kitchen items, books and even CDs, that it was very easy to feel at home.
I'd definitely recommend this cabin for a romantic getaway. So special.
My partner and I escaped to this darling school house from Brooklyn. The house is wonderful and very well done, it is clear that a lot of love has gone into it. It is ideal for people looking to get away and relax! It is also a place to unplug and enjoy nature. For the price, this space is a CATCH! you won't be disappointed.
Renters receive a list of local restaurants and attraction, as well as shopping suggestions for obtaining the wonderful local produce and meats that area farmers offer. The best reason to visit Andes and the schoolhouse for its quiet seclusion and off-the-grid feeling. A perfect spot to decompress!
