Overview

About the property

Impeccably maintained and updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin on a 100 acres

We are not your typical rental; we are your home away from home, no need to bring anything but yourselves and your luggage.

Once you unlock the front door, you will realize this is no ordinary log cabin, the rustic appeal remains, but modern twists make it fun and inviting. Hang your coat and relax in the comforts of your week or weekend retreat. Whether entertaining friends or family, this home offers a unique opportunity for each guest to relax and enjoy whatever activity they choose to do.

This house has so much to offer. A large open layout between the kitchen, dining and living room area allows for easy conversation and entertaining, while a separate loft has been designated as the TV room to gather for movies. Whether you want to whip up a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, barbeque on one of the two charcoal grills, try your hand on the outdoor pizza oven, or sit around the fire pit with your favorite dessert, then this is the place for you. Have dinner on the front wooden deck facing the stunning Denver Vega Valley or grab dessert on the blue stone patio surrounded by colorful perennial gardens, which may remind one of al fresco patios in Tuscany. Or simply read a book and relax on one of the Adirondack chairs or hammocks to forget about your hectic workweek. Whatever way you choose to relax, you will feel rejuvenated by the peaceful landscape in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Catskills. This house was built for a family or group of friends who love to gather and experience a one of a kind Catskills vacation.

As one recent renter said to me, the photos don't do this house any justice, it is much more beautiful in person. Given that we only started rented this place in January 2015, we are so pleased to hear that our guests absolute love the cabin and the property!

Our guests have raved at how equipped the house is:

The kitchen has state of the art knives, coffee maker (no filters needed), stovetop espresso maker, teakettle, every pot and pan imaginable, including Le Creuset pots, Crock-pot, baking trays and bread pans. We do also have two turkey pans for the holidays. The list goes on.

Grab a board game or the books we supply and enjoy. We supply wood for the winter if you want to start a fire.

The dining room includes hutch with wine glasses, cordial glassware, beer mugs, etc.

This house features three bedrooms, all equipped with 800+ count sheets. On one side of the house there are two bedrooms, which offer new Sterns & Fosters European Firm Pillow top Queen size beds for a wonderful nights rest. One of these rooms also houses a kid's loft and workspace if you are “working from home”. The kid's loft is height restrictive, being only three feet high, but kids love it! You can hear them giggling as they read their bedtime stories. This loft has two queen-size mattresses that can hold up to four kids or more depending on their ages. This bedroom also has an entrance to the patio, so if you don’t want to wake someone up in the morning yet want to roam the land, you can. There is a bathroom with a shower next to these two bedrooms.

On the other side of the house there is a bedroom with a new Tempur-Pedic king size bed and a bathroom with a stand-up shower and Jacuzzi tub. This is the only bedroom that has a TV and DVD. Sliding glass doors open to the back patio and front deck.

Each room is large enough to add a playpen(s). We have two playpens for your convenience.

Additional guests can use the TV loft (large flat screen tv and DVDs included) as there is a queen sized futon and a queen sized Pottery Barn pull out couch with a gel insert for a comfortable nights rest.

The property features 100 acres that you can explore, hike to the pond or climb the rock ledges and take in the beauty that surround you.

We offer quality high thread count sheets and plush towels for our guests.

For our summer guests we do not have air conditioning, we do have ceiling fans and several other fans in the loft areas. Since the Catskills and the house is at a higher elevation, humidity tends to be low in the summer and it is about a 10 to 15 degree difference than NYC, the evenings tend to cool off even in the summer months so we recommend you bring a sweater for nights. Summer nights are usually in the low to upper 60s, very pleasant.

The outdoor space has been created for entertainment. We have sun loungers and umbrellas, couch sets, a unique outdoor table that seats a large group. We also have two two-person hammocks. We supply wood for the firepit and the pizza oven.

This is a pet friendly home therefore if you have dog allergies than unfortunately this is not the home for you. However if you have a well-behaved, house-trained dog and want him/her to join you on your vacation then he/she is welcome. We are not prejudiced against any breed; we prefer dogs that do not display destructive behavior. Please let us know if you plan on having more than two dogs, sadly no cats allowed due to owner allergy. There is an additional cleaning fee if dogs do join you.

We are located in the Denver Vega Valley of Roxbury, NY. We are within 15 minutes of Belleayre and Plattekill Mountain. Belleayre Ski Resort has been named 2015 Condé Nast Traveler one of the “12 Underrated Ski Resorts in all of America” for excelling in “great skiing, genuine originality, and reasonable rates.”

Roxbury is host to many weddings; we are a stone’s throw away from Roxbury Barn, Stone Tavern Farm, The Inn at West Settlement, and many other venues hosting large events. If you want a round of golf then we are situated between Hannah Mountain Resort and Country Club and Shepherd Hills Golf Club. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle board within five minutes at Susan’s Pleasant Pheasant Farm. If you prefer to hike, you may do so on the property or hit the nearby trails with your furry friends. Finally, if you are a foodie, then perhaps the Public Restaurant and Lounge in Roxbury, Peekamoose Bar and Grill in Big Indian, Bear Café in Woodstock, Ate o Ate Food Truck, Phoenicia Diner and The Phoenician Steakhouse in Phoenicia, is up your alley. Just ask and we can advise on places to eat. Or gather your ingredients at the Round Barn Farmer’s Market in the summer months and make a great meal at home; the kitchen is well stocked for your convenience.

Perhaps fly fishing, zip-lining, tubing down the Esopus Creek or Night Snow Tubing at Platterkill Ski Mountain is more your thing. However you choose to spend your vacation you will thoroughly enjoy your stay in the Catskills.

About Lu Strutt

It all started with a love story. Daughter of Italian farmers and a native New Yorker meets an Englishman raised on a pig farm and marry in the Catskills. Take it from me, it is a very interesting story, but don’t want to bore you with the details! Anyway, the fun part begins when we merge our individual homes (we married later in life), call our weekend home our “official” home and have made every effort to restore this beautiful cabin and love sharing it with guests. This house was built from love (and blood, sweat and tears!).

Lu Strutt purchased this cabin in 2003

What makes this cabin unique

Once you drive past our house, the unique positioning perched on a steep slope is eye catching. The house enjoys many views from this perch. Waking up to this view is something to embrace, your mind goes blank. The outdoor entertainment is striking. The large wraparound two tier decks allows you to lounge about on sun loungers or relax in an adirondack chair. While the stone patio has a large table that fits 12 people comfortably, a pizza oven and two charcoal grills, and two couch areas to snooze the afternoon or evening away. This house is a dream for a large group of friends or family who want to get away from it all.

Great house to share with another family

The proximity to Belleayre and Plattekill is ideal for the winter providing less crowded skiing opportunities compared to Windham and Hunter.

Fantastic rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house several times during the ski, spring and fall seasons last year and are doing it again this year. We are usually two families and love the setup of the house. The house is located between Belleayre and Plattekill for skiing and close to a nice pool in Arkville. For bikers, the hills provide diversity too. Coming back again this year.

Perfect Group Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a long winter weekend at this house. The layout was perfect for a group with kids. Everyone could cook, eat, hang out, and keep an eye on the little ones without having to run all over the house. Every room was spacious and beautifully furnished.I know everyone felt like they had the best room, which is rare. The place was perfectly and easily stocked with pack and plays, towels, easy to access dishes, tons of cookware, firewood, and sleds! Highly Highly recommend sledding, as the house is surrounded by amazing hills.

When we first arrived it was very snowy and the owner had a plowman show up within minutes of my inquiring. She was always incredibly fast and responsive and gave us very helpful directions on how to reach the house and how to use all the amenities - including the amazing outdoor pizza oven. Overall, everything was clean, cozy, and easy. Couldn't have asked for more! Can't wait to see what this house is like in the summer!

Quiet Rustic House with Modern Finishes

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with 9 of my friends to attend a wedding in Roxbury. The house met all our expectations. Plenty of space, big kitchen and modern touches. On day of wedding we all had our own mini "party" in the backyard before the wedding. The house had grills, corn hole and other games that kept us entertained.

We had a tiny wear & tear issue however the owner was VERY responsive and offered to have it fixed that day. Overall the stay was excellent and made our wedding weekend feel memorable.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

My family and a few close friends had the pleasure of staying at this cabin last weekend. While researching rental properties to stay at for a weekend country getaway, the description and online pictures of this place had swiftly won us over. But to say that our Catskills retreat exceeded expectations would be an understatement.

Upon arrival, our entire party was blown away by the beauty and charm of the cabin. Lu, the homeowner, has made this house a home, and if she isn't already a professional interior decorator she should be. The cabin is this wonderful fusion of rustic charm mixed with modern chic that invokes a coziness that inimitable. The beautiful hardwoods; slate countertops; elegant light fixtures; stylish artwork... I mean, really, the cabin should be featured on an HGTV special.

But that's just the interior of the home. Believe it or not, we actually spent the majority of our time outside! The cabin sits on a hill that overlooks a gorgeous country landscape, with Lu's barn at the base of the property. There is an amazing wraparound porch with a stone patio in the back. The patio is a jaw-dropper. It has two charcoal grills built right in to the stonework, a firepit, and an OUTDOOR PIZZA OVEN! These features coupled with picture-perfect weather made for an idyllic weekend.

Overall, this rental property is a clear-cut 5 star rating for me. Lu made this a pleasurable experience from the get-go. I highly recommend this cabin and I can't wait to go back.

Sincerely,

Neil

Heavenly Oasis Escape From NYC

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I came to this house as part of a wedding taking place in the area. Our biggest complaint was we couldn't spend enough time at this beautiful home and fully utilize all it offered. We're planning a trip back in the fall and in the winter to truly capitalize on this majestic home.
