About Maria

Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, animals, antiquing. Enjoy privacy and simplicity of country life.

Maria purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Maria chose Catskills

We built this cabin as a getaway from the hectic hustle and bustle of every day life to renew our spirits and remind us how life should be lived.

What makes this cabin unique

Property is far away from street, sits back, nestled in woods. Cabin is not visible from street, surrounded by trees but also receives sunlight. Hiking in 24 acres of untouched woodlands. Sledding in wintertime.. skiing down long driveway, grilling in summertime, ice fishing on lake in wintertime.. Many family memories have taken place here throughout the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay it your home. It was very "homey" and cozy. The set up was gorgeous and allowed the adults to enjoy their time away from the kids. It's a wonderful spot for nature watching. The nest right above the door actually allowed us for the first time to see a baby bird leave its nest. Everything was great– A wonderful lazy vacation.

Thank you again,

The Mackeys

PS You will hear from us again.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and i stayed up here for the weekend it was perfect. The cabin is clean and is fully stocked you only need to bring food and drinks. Maria was a pleasure to deal with and she even gave us a house warming gift basket! She helped us with directions up there and let us know about all the fun activities around the area. We will deff be back i almost wish this our cabin in the woods!

beautiful, peaceful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cabin during our family reunion in walton and everything was so nice. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Maria gave us a wonderful welcome gift basket with lots of goodies inside which was a nice surprise! Maria was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful telling us about the Sidney Dam which was so beautiful for swimming and even had a dog beach for our dog to swim at. We will definitely be back!

Truly a Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay and highly recommend this house to both couples and families (can EASILY sleep 6-8 people). The house was so warm and inviting and we loved the decor. We loved sitting and drinking our coffee outside on the HUGE deck in the morning and then grilling on the front lawn at night. After enjoying some treats we would just wander throughout the house marveling at all the amazing ornamentation. You can really get lost in all of it and if you appreciate interior decorating, you are in for a treat!

Beautiful, Secluded House

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for. My girlfriend and I drove from NYC for the weekend. We were treated to a beautiful house in the woods with nothing but peace and quiet around us. We found a bottle of wine among other treats in a gift basket when we arrived. There were only two of us but the house could easily sleep 6. There was a charcoal grill with charcoal and a lighter provided for us! There is a wooden deck with a great view of the lake across the road. Maria, the woman who rented the house, was very sweet and did everything she could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. She told me we only had to bring food and drinks, and she was right. If you're looking for a gorgeous place to get away, this is it.

Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. We enjoyed evenings on the deck looking out onto the lake. The house was beautiful and had everything you needed. The owners had a nice welcome basket for us when we arrived. The weather was perfect and the property even better. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone looking to relax in a quaint little town off the beaten path.

wonder New Year

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long New Years weekend in this charming home with our grown children, lab and favorite uncle. We had plenty of space, lots of laughs and everything we needed. We were very secluded, enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake, some hiking right on the property and exploring in the nearby town. A truly nice get away! Great place for families to spend quality time together without the distractions of computers, cell phones, etc. We would recommend to anyone who seeks peace and quiet.
