Overview

About the property

Picture perfect log cabin in a beautiful wooded setting minutes to everything

When you think about going away to the beautiful Catskill Mountains this year imagine staying in the most gorgeous log cabin. This 6 year young cabin is really set up nicely for your visit and will be hard to leave. Set back off the road in an opening in the woods with no close neighbors. Plenty of wild life though! The kitchen will please any chef with it's gas range and spacious granite counter tops. From the kitchen you can walk out to the killer covered back porch or into the comfy living room complete with gas fire place. On this same floor you'll find two nice bedrooms and a full bath with tub. The lower level is set up with a comfy TV area. Here you'll also find a pool table and half bath as well. This place will make a great home base for your daily adventures. Make sure to hike to the Over Look Fire tower to drink in it's amazing 360 degree Catskill Mountain views. Spend a day at the Mohonk Preserve and hike to Smiley's tower one time or Gertrudes Nose to see views you won't soon forget. Ulster County is home to some amazing rail trails as well so bring your bikes. This is truly a 4 season vacation area and a home that you'll want to come back to time and time again.

About Bruce Stalnaker

We're living in Texas at the moment but do business in New York City quite often and really enjoy our log cabin escape when we're in NY state.

Bruce Stalnaker purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Bruce Stalnaker chose Hudson Valley

Close enough to NYC yet it feels a world away. The Catskills are gorgeous and you'll need some time to explore them.

What makes this cabin unique

Nearly new, comfy, private, well stocked and loved.

Perfect for 4 friends/2 couples needing a low-key weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place is beautiful, quiet, private, and well maintained and well-equipped. Perfect if you're looking for a place to spend time with friends and soothe frayed nerves. The cabin has everything you could want. (Well-stocked game cabinet! I even learned to throw a football!) There is one or two glitchy-things (the internet conks out in the evenings but then spontaneously heals itself by morning) but absolutely nothing to keep a person from having a really nice weekend. Groceries, restaurants are abundant and a pretty 15 minute drive away.

Stars. Fireflies. A woods full of the sounds of owls and other birds (and maybe coyotes?). Pass a few hours around the firepit or sitting on the porch, just counting your blessings and taking in life's simple pleasures.

An extra thanks to Bruce for being responsive to our random queries and making this all such an easy thing to arrange.

Great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the house. It was located perfectly- a quick drive from the popular Kingston areas, but still far enough to be quiet and peaceful. The house is in great condition and well maintained, the property manager Bruce checked up on us several times to make sure we were happy. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, had great amenities, and was both close to town but also felt like a getaway. Bruce was super helpful and checked in each day to make sure we had what we needed. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: We do have the best of both worlds here. We're tucked nicely into the woods on a stubby dead end road yet we're minutes from stores and expressways. Thanks for being so easy on our cabin! Please do come see us again someday soon!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. The value is in the picturesque setting away from the standard hotel/motel, parking lot views and fast food restaurants. The surrounding view on the back porch included a backdrop of beautiful fall foliage, multiple wild turkey and several deer sightings in the evenings. The photos in the listing and the location are accurate. The cabin had that rustic feel and was well stocked with a lot of high end amenities. Inside, the cabin had warm feeling where the girls enjoyed the playing one of the many board games in the closet. They also enjoyed the downstairs pool table. My wife really enjoyed the fireplace. Out the back door, we explored the surrounding woods with some hiking with our young girls. It was ideal for them as opposed to trekking for miles elsewhere. In the evening we enjoyed the fire pit for making s’mores. The location was good for our itinerary of apple picking, Hunter Mountain Festival, Woodstock and finally The Old Rhinbeck Aerodrome Airshow. I grew up in Kingston and haven’t been back for years. I was surprised that there were more things to do in the area than we had time for. Bruce, the property manager, kept in touch with us daily and was very responsive with our requests, providing great customer service. We visited the Wilklow Apple Orchards as it was great for kids and apple picking. Modern Mythology in Woodstock is an eclectic store that my wife loves to visit. Dallas Hot Weiners is a must visit diner for anyone that grew up in the area. Hunter Mountain Skyride was very cool for all ages and the Zipline Line looked cooler. The absolute best attraction was the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Airshow. It’s the only place in the world you’ll get as close to and experience what it was like to fly an aircraft shortly after the years of Orville and Wilbur Wright. I have two recommendations how to improve the VRBO. First, the windows need coverings for the evening. We felt a little exposed late at night. There were people next door clearing brush and burning it well after dark. Second, it would be nice to come and leave from the front door during our stay instead of having to enter through the basement. Overall, we had a great vacation and really enjoyed staying in this VRBO. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends or family. Thanks for the memories!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice review. You went to many of the wonderful sites in the area. Keep in mind Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve when you're in the area. I feel that the cabin is well set to be your home base while exploring locally. We very much enjoyed your stay!! Respectfully, Bruce Rental Manager

Perfect spot to relax and explore the area.

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently visited the area for the first time and we will be back! We found the location to be ideal to visit the many sites in the area. The log house was in a private spot, yet so easy to get to get to Kingston, Woodstock and the many hiking and swimming areas. The house was clean and very well equipped.The living space was spacious and inviting and opened onto a lovely outdoor deck. We enjoyed an evening fire around the fire pit. We enjoyed an amazing diner in Hudson( Wm Farmer and Sons), lunch in Woodstock, and of course breakfast at the Phoenicia Diner.

Bruce was very helpful, responded back to me so quickly, and offered great instructions to make our stay better than we could have imagined.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house that made for a perfect long weekend getaway. My girlfriend and I just spent 4th of July weekend at this breathtaking log cabin. This has been our third Hudson Valley VRBO rental in the past year, and was hands down the best one.

A covered veranda with beautiful views into the surrounding forest, a fire pit for late-night bonfires and extremely charming kitchen and living quarters.

We can't wait to go again!

Located in a wooded setting on a dead end town road. We're minutes from Exit 19 on I-87 and centrally located between Woodstock and Saugerties in the Catskill Park. Within minutes you can be fishing or horse back riding or hiking to amazing views. Woodstock, Kingston and Saugerties are all close by and full of great restaurants and all the major chain stores. Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve are close by as well. Check out the Walkway over the Hudson and bring your bikes to explore the miles of rail trails.
