About This Listing
A 1000 sf converted 1838 barn on the side of a hill, facing a deep private valley. There is an open bedroom upstairs, with a loft-like feel, and the ground level features old beams and an open floor plan. Serene gardens and privacy in abundance.
The 2015 vegetable garden has been planted and it looks to be the best ever. With good weather (and no visits from the local woodchucks!) we should start seeing spring lettuces and peas soon and then an endless supply of goodness through fall.
Cupcake Cottage is a rare find: small, intimate, comfortable and well equipped. Private and serene while still close to area attractions (hiking, skiing, canoeing, golf, farmers market) and the nearby towns of Roxbury and Margaretville.
Attention Skiers: CC is close to both The Belleyeare Mountain Ski Center and Plattekille Mountain.
Guests will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen and a well stocked pantry, a vegetable garden ripe for picking from June-November, and total relaxation and escape. Firewood is supplied for the woodstove. There is a hammock strung under an old apple tree, a fire pit, and a charcoal grill. Wifi, local cable tv, and a Bose music system for ipods and other devices. Washer and dryer. The bathroom is stocked to meet most needs. And, best of all, the vintage KLH record player is newly restored and the record collection grows every week.
Interaction with Guests
A PDF and a binder with directions, instructions, and tips (local attractions, restaurants, and hiking options) are available to help guests plan their visit.
The Cupcake Cottage was a great weekend getaway from the city. Peter has everything you need and more; my boyfriend and I ended up overpacking! Peter is a very gracious host and was available any time we had questions. The house is beautiful and we really appreciated the privacy of the property. We took advantage of Peters record player along with his great collection of vinyls. We will definitely want to come back again!
The cupcake cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway and communication with Pete was easy. The house was super clean and equipped with all the essentials, especially in the kitchen. Our favorite features were the wood stove and record player (and Pete's collections of vinyls). We'd book again in a heart beat. Thanks Pete!
Peter is seriously the best Airbnb host I've had! He was very kind and always available if we needed him for questions. Cupcake Cottage is beautiful. It truly is perfect. Everything is so well thought out- everything you could possibly need is there, so you can just focus on being present. Impressive! I was there for about a week during the early spring for my birthday. The snow was still on the ground and the property was magnificent. We stayed in and enjoyed the warm fire while making great meals in the well stocked kitchen. I also really enjoyed the claw foot bath tub. I can not wait to comeback here during the summer!
Cupcake Cottage was exactly as described and the perfect cottage for our weekend getaway from NYC. We came in the middle of winter and so didn't leave the cottage for more than some grocery shopping, but know from previous trips to the area that all of the neighboring towns are quaint and super friendly.
Instead this trip we enjoyed being snowed in, playing with our puppy in the snow, and cuddling by the fire between playing games and cooking delicious meals (which this large Kitchen is perfect for).
The cottage was once an old barn and, as to be expected, low ceilings and creaking floors add to the beautiful decor and warmth of this weekend escape.
Even covered in 2 feet of snow the grounds and views were breathtaking and we look forward to returning in the summer to experience more.
Peter is a terrific host, very informative to ensure a stress free stay and available, if needed, while allowing for privacy.
We had a fabulous long weekend dat Cupcake Cottage! Peter gave us great suggestions happening that weekend in nearby towns and made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable and informed. We relaxed and listened to his records and cooked in his amazing kitchen all weekend. He has games and books and everything you need to have a relaxing weekend. Would definitely return!
Cupcake Cottage was everything and more. Literally every detail had already been thought out by Peter. Slippers & snowboots -check. Olive oil, flour, butter, sugar, spices, quality pots and chef knives - check. Blankets, firewood, firestarters, fancy boutique soaps and lotions - check. My wife and I had a wonderful and relaxing New Years Eve. This cottage truly will provide you with good energy and a gorgeous setting. It was easy to get to both Hunter and Belleayre to ski, and close enough to one of our favorite towns Phoenicia, to enjoy the restaurants and antiques. We can't wait to return in the summer to enjoy the garden. Happy New Year!
