About Clearwater Cabin
We live in NYC and needed an escape from the hectic life amongst concrete, so after years of searching we bought this stunning cabin property. Shortly thereafter life took over as it tends to do! We were moved abroad, and we want to share this lovely place with others in need of the serenity it gave us :) We are happy to share it with you!
Clearwater Cabin purchased this House in 2014
Why Clearwater Cabin chose Town of Callicoon
This property is a unique blend of indoor creature comforts and outdoor nature at its best. The cabin is casual, you don't feel nervous coming in wet or sandy, but its also finished more upscale than most catskill properties. We also provide as many amenities as possible, so that guests can arrive with as little as they would pack for a hotel stay. The outdoor property is not overly manicured, we left it a bit wild and rustic to really be able to feel being in the natural outdoors. We love that kids can play around the house in the front or back lawn, also in the woods (where all the best adventures happen!) or by/in the lake. These various outdoor environments help them to never bore of being outside, much more entertaining than a single manicured lawn. The lake itself is unique as well - it is small and does not allow motor sports, so the quiet clean water is particularly nice for kids swimming. This lake is spring fed (=VERY clean water) with a sandy bottom instead of a muddy bottom. Our property borders a very shallow section of lake edge, so the depth is between 1-4ft for about 15 yards out into the water before it slopes to a nearly 50 foot max depth. So kids can easily & safely play at our waters edge no matter what age... its perfect for toddlers to splash around while standing safely.

Our favourite NYC Escape, returning again soon!
My family and I have stayed here before, and we always leave with plans to return because its just the perfect dose of restoration. The house and the land are beautiful in any season, and the towns nearby just keep getting better! Can't wait for our next trip.
Stunning Cabin with all Amentites
This cabin is as breath taking in reality as in pictures. It’s stocked with everything you need in kitchen and bathrooms. It’s on a beautiful property. It was spacious and very clean. Our stay was perfect. Thank you!
Secret Cozy GET AWAY!
We went up recently and the stay was perfect. We sat around the fire drinking wine while the kids played in the rec room. Planning and cooking dinners was the best. Total seclusion. Thanks Lauren!!
amazing house and location
This house was really stunning. It was bigger than expected (not usually the case on sites like this), very clean, and in a great location! We were there in the middle of a snowstorm and felt super comfortable the whole time. Also, the house is minutes away from the Arnold House which is a great little spa and restaurant/bar.
Truly feels like home and comfortable. We would be up there every other weekend if we could.
Second time at the cabin and truly love it there...stayed there with my wife and 3 children along with my in laws and nephew and it feels like home. The Clearwater cabin team are so easy to work with and made our stay so easy when we arrived and when we left. The cabin is perfectly arranged and well kept. The kids had so much fun with the foosball table and Nintendo wii and the adults loved playing ping pong and relaxing looking out at the views from the windows. We will definitely be back in the near future and thank you to Lauren and the rest of her team for making our stay a memorable one.
Long weekend with friends
We had a great weekend at Clearwater Cabin! The house was very clean and uncluttered, the kitchen well appointed and the bedding soft and cozy. The property is private and quiet and we enjoyed walking down to the beautiful lake and exploring the woods nearby.
We had a few minor issues that Lauren, the house manager and Alan, the caretaker responded to quickly. We were disappointed that the game room was in the middle of being re-done and our biggest suggestion is to replace the box TV in that room.
Overall a very nice stay!
