We love our cabin in the Catskills. It's hand built, not from a kit. We bought it from the man who built it. We built the kitchen and the bathroom. The style is rustic and minimal. You'll have complete privacy on 20 acres of secluded wooded property with a 4 acre clearing, a creek and a swimming hole. It's a magical, rejuvenating place and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
