Very nice property with beautiful surrounding Forrest and views.

  • 5 of 5

The property had a nice rustic feel and all the amenities we needed for the short weekend getaway. We especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and a local hiking trail.

A Truly Remote Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three kids ages 6, 7 and 9 really loved coming here. We wanted something out of the way where the kids could just walk out the door and play in the surrounding nature without our having to watch them like a hawk. This was truly perfect. There are no roads nearby and the stream was shallow enough to wade across. There are lovely views of the surrounding hills and we even got glimpses of stars. Inside, the house had everything we needed, from comfy beds and couches to toys and children's books, all the kitchen equipment we wanted, a dryer, and hot showers with plenty of water pressure, soap, shampoo and fresh towels. There was even a bouquet of fresh flowers awaiting our arrival! Plan to drive in on an unpaved road in poor repair to reach this casual cozy house, 4WD strongly recommended, though possible without it. Check for ticks before bed if you played outside, as you should all over the Catskills. Ask the host about the coffee maker if making coffee at home is important to you. A few miles down the road you'll find everything you need in Phoenicia, including a decent grocery store, brick oven pizza, a good diner, and some interesting stores selling souvenirs, toys, curios and artworks. There's a farm to table restaurant that is so popular that reservations are an absolute must or you'll be eating elsewhere, as we were. On the way home, check out the luxury gift shops and the trippy kaleidoscope at Emerson Resort. We'll be back, thank you Damian!

Great spot - spacious, yet cozy

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean, with plenty of room. I'd say it's more suitable for a family with children than a group of adults though. Just a couple small things:

1 - The twin beds don't really push together - they are different heights. The kids room is a true kids room - full of toys, stuffed animals,etc.

2 - The house is up a dirt road that's full of pot holes - bring a car with 4-wheel drive if you can

3 - You have to take your garbage with you. That was strange. Make sure you have room in your car for a couple garbage bags when you leave.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful setting! Communication with Damian was smooth and he was very helpful and attentive, especially when we ran into problems with the landline and wifi. The home itself had some quirks and we felt it could use a bit of TLC, but we still had a very nice time. We didn't have any children in our group but the home certainly looks well-prepared for groups with small children (plenty of books, games, and appropriately-prepared beds)!

Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great if you have kids. Tons of toys and books, my kids really enjoyed it. We did too. The owner is super friendly and helpful. The road was too icy to drive up on our first day which was a pity, but he had it fixed in the evening and compensated us for the inconvenience!

We loved it! Bu make sure to bring parchment paper if u want to bake 😜
