Enjoy serenity, fresh air, and gorgeous views at our log cabin in the Catskills. A weekend up at the lake is the perfect getaway from the city and hustle and bustle, ideal for a weekend with loved ones.

This is a beautifully constructed log home with modern furnishings and appliances. With rustic and cozy detail that sleeps 8 people comfortably, you will feel right at home. Additionally, we provide access to the lake, prime sunset viewing from the deck, a fire pit, fishing rods, and our canoe.

The space
Our ground floor is spacious and inviting, perfect to share quality time with family and friends. The living room boasts gorgeous natural lighting through floor to ceiling glass windows and a stunning view of the lake, as well as a large TV with impressive surround sound and a comfy leather sectional. The wood stove makes winter months toasty and comfortable. The bedroom on the bottom floor is a queen bed with an ensuite private bathroom with a brand new rainfall shower and private outdoor entrance. There is also a half bathroom on the bottom floor.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, including a washing machine and dryer. We do our best to provide guests with spices and condiments for cooking. The dining room sits 8 comfortably, although with good weather, we highly recommend enjoying your meals from the back deck!

Top floor has 3 bedrooms: a master bedroom suite with a California King bed and bath, a room with bunk beds (queen on bottom, full on top), and a room with two twin beds. The two bedrooms share a full bath. In the upstairs family area, there is a pull out sofa (full size) and TV for overflow sleeping arrangements.

The wrap-around porch has two dining sets, a grill, and additional seating for tanning, relaxing, or cocktail hour. Continue around the porch and you will find a hammock to enjoy some peace and quiet! Below the deck you will also find a outdoor sitting area with wrap around cobble stones.

We are currently renovating the basement with an additional bedroom and entertaining areas. It will be off limits for the year of 2020 while under construction, but it is something to look forward to in future bookings!

I am a real-estate professional, living in the suburbs outside of NYC with my wife and four daughters. I have been spending my summers with my family on Highland Lake since I was young. If you love to be in a quiet place surrounded by nature, this place is for you! My hobbies include water-skiing, boating on the lake, fishing, camping, drinking wine and enjoying the serenity of nature and its surroundings. I hope that you will love Highland Lake and the Catskills as much as I do!
