Stunning newly updated and luxuriously outfitted log cabin; classic atmosphere
Welcome to our personal retreat in the Catskills! Completely private and set on an acre overlooking the Hudson Valley. Perfect for a romantic retreat, ski, fall or summer trip with friends, or family getaway. Only 2 hours from the George Washington Bridge in NYC. Professionally cleaned before every stay; property manager lives only a few minutes from the house.
This classic log cabin will be your perfect home base for hiking, skiing, wine-tasting, or just relaxing while soaking in the natural mountain surroundings. Although situated only 10 minutes from downtown Windham with access to a main road, this house is perfectly secluded and enjoys incredible quietude due to being on the side of Mt. Pisgah, surrounded only by thick forest and beautiful farmland. Out back, a private hot tub sits on the freshly remodeled cedar stained deck, overlooking a new stone fire pit and a star-studded view that stretches all the way to Massachusetts. In the summer, picnic and play games on a sprawling lawn.
Inside, a newly stocked kitchen (including spices, coffee, and other essentials) and wood-burning majestic stone fireplace await cozy days spent holed up. Four bedrooms with new, queen-size memory foam beds (one of which has a twin bed bunked above it) and fresh linens will easily accommodate you and your friends. Two charming bathrooms offer updated rain head showers. A wood stove in the upstairs master bedroom provides a warm and romantic ambiance. Enjoy a home-cooked meal in the stunning window-filled dining room which easily seats eight.
Upstairs, there is a TV Room with all new, comfy oversized couches; there are brand new furnishings, beds and linens throughout the house.
There are incredible hiking, biking, skiing and countless other activities in the area. We have a list of our favorite things to do nearby, including favorite restaurants, plus more photos at our site online; follow us on Instagram at @coziestcatskillcabin and click through to our website.
Some things to note:
(1) For summer renters, please note that the house does not have air conditioning. The cabin is situated on the side of a mountain which is usually 10 or 15 degrees cooler than the valley floor. There are ceiling fans throughout the house.
(2) We have done our best to update the house with modern comforts! That being said, the house is in a rural area so internet speeds are not as fast as they are in the city. We have found that the internet is reliable enough to check emails or work remotely.
(3) While the house is finished and fully insulated, and cleaned for every renter, it is located in the mountains and (depending on the time of year), some critters do find their way into the home despite our best efforts and pest-proofing. Again, we have found that being careful about food clean-up and securing doors/windows (especially at night) minimizes any issues.
(4) The basement houses our washer and dryer and extra supplies are also kept down there. However, we ask that renters access the basement via the house and do not use the garage door, which is currently due for repair. As noted in our house manual you will receive when you book, we also ask that you do not park cars in the garage/driveway and only park in the designated area.
We love our home and want to be upfront with our renters. We hope you will come and love it as much as we do!

About Paavana and David Lepard
We're a newly married couple looking for some respite from a busy NYC lifestyle. We love to spend our weekends trail running, fat-biking, winery-hopping, or just taking in the mountains by a crackling fire--and the Northern Catskills were the answer on all fronts. We purchased this cabin earlier this year and spent the summer prepping it for fall and winter renting. We've poured a lot of work into it, but we finally feel like the place offers the kind of weekend experience that we look for either on our own or with friends. We hope you'll love the cabin as much as we do!

The cabin was absolutely perfect. Rustic and modern, had everything we needed. The yard was huge, and the hot tub was a great added bonus. Paavana and David were responsive and helpful throughout. Would DEFINITELY stay again.
Lives up to its name
Excellent location. Excellent layout. Excellent accommodations.
Welcoming host; sweet cabin; AMAZING views
This cabin has incredible views, and is very comfortable. The kitchen is well set up, the beds super comfortable, and the fireplace is lovely. The beautiful back dining deck would be best in warm weather.
We loved it!
we had a great weekend at the cabin. Everything was clean and in great condition. The beds are very comfortable and the management company was very responsive.
Feb 2018 stay
Stayed for two nights including valentines day. This place is fantastic. The cabin is clean and cozy. The owners have thought of every detail. Every amenity is provided and everything has been thought of and accounted for. I use homeaway a few times a year and this has by far been my best stay. I cannot say enough about how fantastic it was.
Awesome ski cabin!
Close to Windham mountain. Place is clean and gorgeous. Quintessential ski cabin. Highly recommended. Slept two families, very comfy.
Just a note: if you’re looking for a fire every night you’ll need to stop in town to grab wood after 2nd night. Gorgeous fireplace!
