Peter’s Cupcake Cottage was absolutely the perfect spot for our winter vacation. The cottage is so welcoming and very quickly feels like home. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you could possibly want and the fireplace heats the place perfectly! And there are no words that do justice to the view.
Peter was such a great host; very communicative, excellent recommendations for places to eat and things to do in the area, and overall a real pleasure to deal with. We definitely want to try and get back in the summer!
We had a wonderful time at CupCake cottage! Peter is an extremely thoughtful and considerate host. The cottage is meticulously maintained and it was a unique and inviting place to get away from the city. The views were amazing. The cottage is situated up from a side road on a mountainside which gives a real sense of privacy and there;s plenty of room for a couple. We are looking forward to our next stay!
Peter did a phenomenal job of making the house ready for us and we enjoyed every minute of our winter retreat. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil you could possibly want, the stove keeps things toasty and beautiful views are out every window. Everything was easy as pie and we look forward to a visit in the summer when it's warm.
An ideal setting and a cozy, unique cabin. Everything you need to seclude yourself is waiting, plus a few perks you wouldn't expect (won't spoil them). Highly recommended.
Amazing< Amazing, Amazing!! We loved this little cottage. We will definitely be back. Super cute in every way!
Peter's little cottage is a fantastic place to get away from it all! We arrived in the depths of winter and can tell you now that fireplace kept the place more than cozy for 3 days. If you're into cooking cupcake cottage has every utensil you will ever need. Gorgeous walks and overall a real treat.
And Peter was great - so prompt in responding to anything. His directions and tips are easy to follow and incredibly helpful. We couldn't have been happier with our choice for a break from it all for a few days!
This was my very first AirBnB experience and it could not have been any better. My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to get out of NYC for a few days and enjoy some fresh air. Cupcake Cottage was clean, cozy, and had breathtaking views of the mountains and Peter's hugeeee garden (which he let us pick veggies from). We enjoyed barbecuing, making fires, and just relaxing. We also wound up being there the last weekend of the season that the historic U&D railroad does its scenic tours, which allowed us to ride through the area on a train from the late 1800s. Very cool... and beautiful!
Peter provided us with a binder full of instructions for the house and suggestions about where to eat and things to do; he really took care of everything and made us feel so welcome. I highly recommend a visit!
I would love to keep this place a secret so no one else will beat me to it next time we get a chance to leave NYC for a couple of days, however, Peter's place deserves nothing less than a glowing review.
This is a perfect spot for romantic getaway from the city for two. The place was impeccable and so cozy with a fireplace and the most amazing garden. Trails for hiking and charming small towns close by.
Clear instructions for everything. I highly recommend the place.
Perfect getaway spot in the Catskills for two people. Cozy, romantic, relaxing.
We had the best long weekend at the Cupcake Cottage. The house itself is lovely — Peter has a great design aesthetic — and the mountain view from the back porch is fantastic. We wouldn't have changed a thing about the place. We didn't want to leave, and will definitely be recommending this place to other friends in NYC who are looking for an easy, relaxing getaway.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
