The space
** Before booking: Please read House Rules below, under: "Other things to note"

**You should have familiarity with the Catskills OR with homes in natural environments. You will be on a mountain surrounded by miles of forest, while only 3 min to the center of Roxbury town. There are neighbors nearby on our private road so you won’t feel isolated or alone. This home is set up to be a chic-oasis in the middle of rustic natural beauty. Wildlife and insects are part of the outdoor experience. Although it's unlikely to see them, bears and coyotes are in the area - they are more afraid of us and easily scared off by human noise. Guests should be comfortable with nature.

Wake up to that clean, crisp mountain air surrounded by ten lush acres. The home is eclectic, yet cozy and flooded with natural light. From the moment you unlock the door, you'll know this is going to be no ordinary vacation. Our cabin is a modern 2,400 square foot, eco-friendly log home, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and ample living spaces, perfect for a large family retreat or intimate getaway.

With plenty of space for entertaining and gathering together both inside and outside: open concept and fully equipped kitchen, spacious living room, big picture windows looking out to the forest, three expansive decks with Adirondack chairs, two fireplaces for cold mountain nights, three comfy bedrooms with high thread count sheets, two bathrooms (one with a shower/tub combo and the other is a walk-in shower), plenty of plush towels, an additional loft space with futon, totaling 2,400 square feet of house! All surrounded by 10 acres of woods, which means no neighbors or busy roads in sight.

The house has numerous nooks which provide privacy for larger parties and for hiding away with a good book and a glass of wine. 
Soaring floor-to-ceiling windows and french doors lead to front and back decks perfect for lounging and dining. 

Take in morning views over a cup of coffee (provided) and watch the sunrise over the distant mountains. Then, gather around the large dining table, after having cooked breakfast in our open concept kitchen, where you can watch the many species of birds on the property living in over 50 birdhouses. After breakfast, make the day your own - explore the local towns of Margaretville, Phoenicia or Andes, go antiquing, or take the family on the one-mile hike to the John Burroughs Memorial and his boyhood home (famous American poet and naturalist).

In the evening, enjoy a fire in our designer floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the Grand Room, gather around the fire pit in the front yard, or stretch out on the back deck and take in the night sky. With zero neighbors in sight, it's just you and the stars.


We also provide several board games, a 50 inch Samsung Smart TV with Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, ESPN+, and a Record Player with Bluetooth Speakers for guests to enjoy.


The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook/bake, including electric cooktop, oven, full-size fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, hand mixer, slow cooker/pressure cooker, can opener, wine opener, barware including wine glasses and cocktail shaker, plenty of sharp/steak knives, drip coffee maker, a french press, Nespresso (coffee provided), electric tea kettle (tea provided), assorted pots, pans, bakeware, mixing bowls, dinnerware, flatware, and serving ware. We also have large service platters and bowls for holidays/family style, a turkey roasting pan, BBQ tools and accessories. There are some basic items provided, such as salt and pepper, coffee, and tea. The house is set up for guests, so you are welcome to use anything you find in the refrigerator, freezer, and cabinets (i.e. condiments, seasonings, etc.).


For our guests' convenience, we have Nests and Hue Smart Lights throughout the home. Kindly let us know your arrival time, and we will turn on the lights and turn up the heat (if it's cold), so you arrive to a warm, cozy, well-lit house.


We're continually adjusting and upgrading the home based on guests feedback and suggestions. We look forward to your thoughts and welcome your feedback so we can provide the best airbnb experience for our guests.

Terri and Elliot are madly in love!

We married at the Roxbury Barn and Estates, and immediately connected with the people and the town of Roxbury. There's something special about the Catskills and we want to spread that feeling of loving kindness to everyone we meet.

We're educators and artists with a passion for travel. Both being creatives, our home is eclectic and bursting with our style; we hope you enjoy our space as much as we do.

Cheers!
