My little home for the week-end worked perfectly for me. The bungalow is tidy and rustic and cozy and tucked back in a quiet neighborhood. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see Ella in person, but she was prompt and helpful as soon as I needed an answer to any questions. She has very clear and had easy instructions and rules posted about the bungalow which made staying there very smooth! The bunk bed can accommodate more than 1 person, but the space is snug so for me, I think just me was just right!
Ella's place was so cute and amazing! Definitely a great little place for a romantic couples getaway for some hikes in the Catskills. We really enjoyed our stay and are sure you will too.
Ella was super easy to work with, helpful, and responded quickly. The bungalow was cozy and very clean. Also very close to a nice grocery store, a bar/restaurant and an outdoor/hunting store. Perfect for a single person or couple. May be a tight squeeze with more than that but if you are only using it for a "base camp" when skiing etc then it would be fine. It is situated in a small compound with a few other houses but the neighbors seemed friendly and kept to themselves. Definitely recommended.
Ella was nice. The bungalow was pleasant, my children wanted to take the mattresses home as they were so comfortable. It had everything you need for some time away - fridge, stove, sink, hot water for shower and good size TV with DVD player. Everything worked. Very clean. Quiet. There is a good diner, clothing store and grocery store within a mile so that was convenient. We had plenty of privacy as Ella texted us at checkout and check-in and left us to our own vacation. It was a good time -- probably a little small for 3 big adults but as we were two kids and an adult it was more than enough room. Maybe next time, just my wife and I will get away.
The bungalow was cozy and conveniently located near a grocery store and lots of beautiful scenery and other small towns (a trek to the Ommegang brewery near Cooperstown is well-worth it for the Belgian-style frites alone!). Ella was very good at communicating despite the holidays and the Nor'easter that pounded us those days. She was also very helpful in dealing with a couple of small hiccups we encountered during our stay. A highly recommended AirBnBer!
My stay at the catskill bungalow was very beautiful. The cottage was very cozy and Ella was a great host. The location was great. It is right next to a lake that you can fish in, a short walk from the grocery store, and close to Hunter, where there are beautiful views and hiking. The only downsides that I felt were worth mentioning to future guests is that it gets very very hot inside the cabin when cooking. It's an easy fix - you can stay in the bedroom with the AC on or go outside. The only other thing is that it is situated around other homes so you don't get that "upstate, rural" experience, however that is mentioned on the listing.
Overall, the stay was lovely and I certainly enjoyed the experience. Despite the cons, I'd highly recommend it.

My real name is Elzbieta, but I use Ella as well. I've been renting my little Catskill Bungalow since 2007. It's been a pleasure to offer it to guests that are interested in visitng the beautiful Catskill Mountains region. Since 2012 in addition to the little bungalow I started to offer a bigger cottage rental.
Our properties provide guests an opportunity to rent their own cabin at a price that compares to motel rates in the area. Yet, they're equipped with a full kitchen, high speed Internet, outside grill, garden swing and more. You will find our cabins very homey and cozy!
