About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

This secluded one of a kind Catskill Mountain log cabin is 2 hours from the George Washington Bridge. The fully furnished cabin is clean, cozy and airy and is a great place for a family to get away to. The newly renovated kitchen is big and open and perfect for group cooking and gathering. It features a Viking stove with indoor grill, ice cream maker, Meile dishwasher and 2 sinks. The cabin features a wood burning fireplace; dining table big enough for 10; an out of tune piano and six string acoustic guitar; a great collection of both adult and children's books and board games; wireless high speed internet access is available as well as a 36 inch flat screen TV with a DVD player; stereo with multi-disc CD player and iPod jack with indoor and/or outdoor speakers; and a covered front porch. Outside is a fire pit, a fantastic tire swing, a sledding hill in winter, a tree house and a big front lawn, perfect for a football game or snowball fight.

The cabin is surrounded by 20 acres of private, quiet, beautiful woods, full of deer, turkey, squirrels, owls and chipmunks. Take a quiet walk along our babbling Thorpe Creek to the swimming hole or hike up the creek to explore magnificent waterfalls.

In the area- explore hiking trails in the Catskill Mountains, visit Olana - the home of Hudson River artist Frederick Church, shop at nearby organic farm stands, go antiquing in Hudson, visit yards sales, and jump into a local auction. Skiers! We're a 20 minute drive from Windham, 30 minutes from Hunter. Go swimming, fishing, horseback riding, cross country skiing and after, visit local Irish pubs with nightly musical entertainment. This is a perfect place to spend some relaxed time with the ones you love.

Well behaved pets okay.

About Ellen and Matt Dudley

I am an art director, designer and entrepreneur.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and spent much of my childhood far off the beaten track, in a cabin on a canal, without electricity or running water.

I've raised my family in NYC, and spending time at the cabin, off the grid, has given my children the best of both worlds.

Ellen and Matt Dudley purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Ellen and Matt Dudley chose Catskills

We bought our cabin from the man who built it by hand. We've carefully added an amazing kitchen and an all-ply bathroom, making the cabin functional, enjoyable and beautiful, without diminishing the rustic simplicity.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is warm in the winter, and cool in the summer months.

It sits on 5 cleared acres surrounded by 20 acres of woods. We love having complete seclusion, outdoor showers, campfires and access to nature.

The swimming hole is magical and the creek bordering the property affords hours of exploration.

Wildlife is happy and welcomed on our property. We have deer, turkeys, fox, groundhogs, tiny orange salamanders, hummingbirds, owls and geese. We hear the coyotes at night in the summer, but have never seen them.

Perfect log cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat in the woods, but that is still accessible to local dining in Hudson and everything else the Catskills has to offer, this is perfect. The pictures do not even do it justice. Very clean, well maintained, and a kitchen stocked well enough to suit a gourmet chef. There is no microwave, which I never use anyhow, but just an FYI to others...and the only tv is upstairs in the bunk room, which is great for those who want to watch TV and those who do not can sit downstairs and sleep next to or stare into the wood burning stove. The fire pit outside is also lots of fun, as is the tire swing, treehouse, and creek nearby. Our two black lab mutts were in heaven! We will definitely be back to visit again soon.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. It is on a truly special piece of land. The cabin itself was spacious and comfortable, and the attention to detail was truly appreciated. We already are trying to figure out a time to return. Thank you for sharing your amazing property with us Ellen!

Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in a remote location away from all the noise of city and town which means city folks like us finally got the opportunity to unwind from the daily craze of things like the subway system or being stuck in rush hour traffic. Everything that we needed for a good two nights was provided in the cabin- very neat, spacious , nothing inside was missing. The families cant complain ; we reccommend this cabin to anyone wishing to escape a hectic schedule.

AMAZING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed this wonderful place with my husband and some friends plus two doggies. We had a blast! The house is incredibly beautiful, tastefully decorated, big and comfy. The beds are extremely comfortable, which was very important since some of us have back problems. It is surrounded by trees, it feels so peaceful and quiet! We went hiking nearby and we saw a beautiful cascade and a lake...it was great. Ellen is very nice, accommodating and easy to deal with. I recommend this place to everyone!! You won't be disappointed!
