Welcome to the Catskill’s Country “Cutaway Cottage”! What better way to “cut-away” from the crowds, conflict, and chaos of everyday life than a mountain cottage? Comfortable and private on 7 secluded acres, Cutaway Cottage offers an ideal opportunity to get to know the real Catskills as well as the scenic town of Claryville, NY. With hiking trails on your doorstep (Red Hill Fire Tower is just up the road – or a direct hike through the woods from the cottage), a private swimmable spring fed pond (7 feet deep), water floats, outdoor fire pit, and bikes to ride, this cottage affords a tranquil weekend escape. Try it once and you will be hooked!
There are 3 comfortable bedrooms with queen beds, a bathroom with tub/shower, open plan living, full kitchen, and plenty of outdoor space to relax, dine al fresco and BBQ. Satellite TV, wireless internet, IPOD stereo, DVD player and in home library all offer entertainment options when not outside. Both up and downstairs living spaces provide for a little separation when desired. The paved stone patio in front of the house offers ample sun drenched and covered space for gathering. At night, there is no better place to view the night sky and brilliant starscape without the pollution of city lights.
Enjoy hikes through the woods, bike rides, country drives, or fly fishing the iconic Neversink River valley just ½ mile down the mountain. Take advantage of apples, pears, blueberries, gooseberries & currants all on the property. For those in the mood for relaxation, peace and quiet, sit back and enjoy the traditional cottage furniture, lounge on the shady porch, and take in the fresh mountain air while overlooking the Catskill Forest, pond, and beautiful sunsets over Wildcat Mountain. Either way – Cutaway Cottage is for you!
In a secluded location with pond and nearby access to State land, this cottage has all the necessary elements for the ideal country escape
Loved this house! Was even better than expected. We watched stars, had bonfires, grilled on the deck, went hiking, howled at coyotes, and swam in the pond (it's a bit muddy-looking, but if you're just a little bit brave, it is completely refreshing and wonderful. Floats were provided, too!). Just a tip: do grocery shopping before going up -- the store is at least 30 minutes each way. Worth it to be so secluded, though! Had such a great time -- we will be back!
