The Birdhouse in Hancock, NY
Our property, home to The Birdhouse, was purchased in 2006 to house a bevy of thirty something dreams. The Bakery in Hancock, NY opened downstairs in April 2012.
Somewhere along the way The Birdhouse* was born. *So named by locals due to the lack of a roof and the feathered friends who took up residence for a long while.
Furnished with salvaged treasures and comfy beds -- The Birdhouse is a sustainable adventure.
Three guest suites (as of Spring 2016), each with a full kitchen and a private bath, provide guests an unusual respite in the Catskills. PLEASE NOTE EACH SUITE IS A SEPARATE RENTAL. We will send a special offer to you if you are looking for both, or all three suites.
