Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Kristen and her family were extremely accommodating, sweet and a pleasure to work with. Her home is lovely, and set in a idyllic lakeside location, nearby Hunter Mountain and the Catskills. Her home is a unique, cozy and an aesthetically pleasing cabin. Her talented husband's artwork adorns the walls, the fireplace heats the entire home (kept us more than warm in 10 degree weather), and they keep it stocked with board games, movies and a FABULOUS music selection. It was the perfect weekend escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. My only suggestion for other guests who visit during the winter months is to make sure your car has 4WD, as the property is located at the top of steep mountain road. Although, Kristen graciously offered to help get us up the hill if we ran into any trouble:) Thanks again - can't wait to visit in the Summer!

  • Cozy Campfires provided a wonderful weekend retreat. The house was perfect for 3 couples and provided plenty of activities- we canoed, played on football on the yard, found a local hiking spot, and enjoyed the firepit at night. The lake was beautiful and the area was very quiet. We'll be back!

  • Sasha and Kirsten are such gracious and kind hosts! On our arrival, they warmly welcomed us and showed us around the property. The house was comforting and peaceful - and we enjoyed it immensely. The property reflects the care and thoughtfulness of the owners. I enjoyed use of the fireplace, canoe and trampoline. Furthermore, there are a wide-variety of music, books and videos to keep yourself occupied. I had a terrific time with my family and would recommend this property to anyone.

  • Kirsten and her family were sweet and generous when we arrived early for our check in. Her husband kept us entertained and showed us around the property, which was quite beautiful. The home, firepit, and lake were perfect and picturesque, and had the most relaxing time for our short stay. Will definitely be staying here again! Highly recommended

  • Recommended. House was just as described and served as a good home base for exploring the Catskills and central New York. Nice place to spend a rainy afternoon, too.

  • We had a fantastic time at the cabin. Extremely warm, stunning location with amazing access to the lake. Altogether a perfect weekend escape and one I will be recommending to others. Thank you!

  • Overall, we had a pretty good stay. We were greeted warmly and the accommodations were lovely. It truly was a cozy getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. The property itself had plenty to offer to enjoy nature. My only complaint would have to be the 2 goats situated on the property. They really did become a nuisance and can be rambunctious at times. Our host was apologetic and I can only hope that the situation would be rectified for future stays. Otherwise, it was a lovely place and have only kind words for our hosts.

    Response from Kirsten:

    This is the first time anything like this ever happened. Normally the goats travel with us wherever we go, so when we rent the house they are usually with us. This time however, our guests were only staying for one night so we decided to keep the goats in their goat house enclosure that is situated across the road from the house, not thinking in a million years that they could escape, as we worked SO SO hard to make it a sturdy and reliable home for them. Somehow, they escaped and we were not on the premises to remedy the situation in time. I feel awful about this mishap and it will certainly not happen again!

  • Kirsten's lake house is a wonderful gateway from the city. It provides everything you would need. Kirsten and Sasha are both very sweet and helpful. Looking forward to coming back!

Happy Country Girl! I've been around the world but there's no place like home and family....I am thoroughly enjoying motherhood and all it comes with. Nature calms me down and reminds me to be patient. Our home is a little sanctuary away from all the hustle and bustle of reality. The door to faery-land is here. Step in.
