Nestled in a quiet community, our Catskills cabin is literally across the street from the Forest Reserve at Smallwood, with picturesque waterfalls, hiking and more. You can relax in the wood-fired sauna or by the fire, or deerwatch in the gazebo. Check out events at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, just 5 miles away (aka Yasgur's Farm, home of the original Woodstock!). The cabin is perfect for disconnecting in peace, and is a short drive from beautiful state parks and the Delaware River.

The space
You’ll know the second you walk in that the cabin was carefully crafted as a getaway from city life, with cozy paneled walls and warm wood planks running throughout. We've spent a lot of time updating the space for modern life, and it's a great launch pad for exploring the Catskills!

The living room has a comfy Article leather sofa that you'll love curling up in, and a dining table that easily seats six (and is perfect for enjoying our stock of jigsaw puzzles and board games!). In addition to baseboard heating, there is a cozy fireplace/firepit with a stack of wood provided (please let us know if you're new to making fires, we can help!). FIOS Internet makes working from home easy, and the Roku TV can connect to all your favorite streaming services. Music lovers will enjoy our curated record collection, carefully collected to match the cabin vibe. Off the living room, you'll walk into a light-filled sun room, with a fun hammock chair among other seating options (please note the sunroom is not insulated, so is most usable from May-October).

Both bedrooms have queen-sized beds with a Tuft & Needle mattress and plenty of closet space. The main bedroom also has a 32-inch Roku TV for bedtime movies.

The office offers a prime working-from-home space, complete with fast wifi, extra monitor, keyboard, mouse and all sorts of cable adapters for your laptop. Many of our guests have spent their entire stay working from home at the cabin! This room can also be used as a third bedroom by converting the sofa into a double-size bed.

The full bathroom is situated between the bedrooms. It has a nostalgic 50s vibe with aqua mosaic tile floors, and features a modern showerhead with steady water pressure. The second bathroom, a half bath, makes the cabin a convenient getaway for 3-5 persons, and is located right off of the kitchen.

The kitchen is richly rooted in the 70s, but is equipped for the modern chef, including a KitchenAid oven, fridge and stand mixer, a dishwasher, a Cuisanart food processor, OXO coffeemaker, a range of cast iron pans, and sharp knives. There's a cozy breakfast nook that's perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or poring over cookbooks to find culinary inspiration.

Outside the cabin, you can't miss the wood-fired barrel sauna and the fire pit; the screened-in gazebo is home to the gas BBQ, a great spot to enjoy the breeze without the bugs and cook up some brats or corn. If you stay more than thirty minutes, you'll likely be greeted with deer passing through!
