Why Lucia Strutt chose Denver
We care. As hosts we continually try to make the cabin a special retreat. Once you unlock the front door, you will quickly realize the care we put into the cabin. It is not 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, bbq 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, couch sets 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 on another rental site, we are so pleased to hear that our guests absolute love the cab
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 18 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.

Beautiful property, exactly as advertised, perfect for our weekend with friends + kids
Lu was great. The property was just lovely. We had an amazing time and all wished we could have stayed longer and enjoyed making use of the pizza oven and the hammock and the outdoor space more generally! Still, just sitting out on the deck and overlooking the valley was wonderful, the place was in perfect shape, and we had an excellent time. Definitely hoping to return for a more extended getaway at some point soon ...
Great property, perfect for a weekend getaway!
We had a wonderful weekend during our stay at this house. The views were gorgeous and the property was very spacious. Our dogs had so much fun running around that they could barely stay awake when we got home. The interior was very clean and decorated nicely, and had everything we needed. The kitchen was the one of most well-stocked ones I've encountered in the area. The backyard was also such a nice place to hangout. Of course the best was the wood fire pizza oven! It was such a fun and unique experience to make our own pizzas. Lu was also very accommodating and responsive. We hope to return one day, this is definitely a house to remember!
Perfect house for our ski weekend, well equipped, clean, and features as described
This house has everything needed for a weekend stay. Just bring your ski gear and food, and everything else is there just like at home. Plenty of room for 2-3 families, comfortable lounging area with a fire, large dining table, well equipped kitchen, large bathrooms, comfortable beds with cozy flannel sheets. Not to mention the tasteful decor. Our kids loved the loft areas, both the main one with the tv and the hidden loft above the 3rd bedroom. Weather prevented us from using the beautiful deck and patio areas, but the views are amazing and I can imagine how nice it would be in summer months. Great location for our ski weekend in Plattekill. Great space at entry for wet boots, and hooks for coats, pants, helmets, etc. So much better than staying in a hotel. The owner was very accessible, responded immediately to any questions and gave clear instructions for access and use of the house. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely go back to this house!!
Great time for Thanksgiving vacation for 2 families
Wether you want to spend your time hiking outside or tucked in by the fireplace inside, this is the perfect house.
With a great view of the valley and mountain across, with great amenities and a special wood burning pizza oven for the foodies, we strongly recommend this property.
Perfect Bday Weekend Getaway!
This was actually our second year staying at this house for my birthday weekend with a group of dear friends. We enjoyed it so much last year, that we decided to return.
Lu was helpful and very responsive from beginning to end. Our first year on the last day of our trip there was unexpected snow and from the looks of it, getting on the road seemed iffy. Lu was quite helpful in alerting us about when the roads would be plowed and making sure that we had no trouble getting out. She also was quite resourceful in providing recommendations and intel on the area, where to eat, drink, etc.
The house is deliciously cozy and comfortable, beautifully decorated and if you enjoy cooking, an awesome kitchen, with great cookware! Not to mention a pizza oven! This year we mastered our pizza making skills and our big family style homemade Sunday night dinner was a real highlight. Most of our time was spent relaxing, sitting by the fireplace and enjoying the simple pleasures of just existing in a wonderful space. If this sounds like what you are looking for, you will be quite happy. We did venture into Woodstock for the day, and always end the trip with a stop at Phoenicia Diner (a must!). The house is pretty remote from town, at least 15-20 min away, so make sure you stop by the grocery store to get everything you need on your way up. The phone service in the area is also not amazing, so make sure you screenshot or save anything needed on your phone on the way up. In the house you are fine with wifi, but calls/texts will be spotty unless through wifi, ie; whatsapp.
I cannot say enough great things about how special this house is, my experiences (both times!) and Lu. As an NYC inhabitant, there is something really amazing about getting away from the city and being able to enjoy country life in a beautiful setting. In short, the house and our trips fulfilled all my expectations.
Amazing property, Lu is a dream to work with
We rented this house for a nearby wedding weekend, for some of our guests to stay at, and also to hold our rehearsal dinner at on Friday. Lu went above and beyond, helping us also utilize the beautiful barn for our dinner, decorating and making sure our guests would be perfectly comfortable in the house.
While I didn't stay in the house myself, I did get to see it and she's done an amazing job decorating and upkeeping the property. I can say enough good things about the venue, and highly recommend reaching out to Lu to coordinate.
We are located in the Denver Vega Valley of Roxbury, NY. We are within 15 minutes of Belleayre and Plattekill Ski Mountains, and only 30 minutes from Windham and Hunter. 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. Or gather your ingredients at the Round Barn Farmer’s Market in the summer months. Just ask and we can advise on places to eat.
Perhaps fly fishing, mountain biking, 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.
