The cabin is charming and comfortable with a lovely yard, a stream and surrounded by flowers. The house has 2 bedrooms and a pull out couch in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and a gas grill charcoal grill to use for cooking meals outside.
The house is on a country road scattered with houses and is 1/4 mile from the end.
The air is fresh, the street is quiet and the house is unique.

My friends and I had a great time at Carla's place. Her backyard space is absolutely wonderful. We had a lot of fun grilling and hanging out by the creek. The best part was that we were able to bring our dog (free of charge!) and he had a blast running around! Carla was very responsive and helpful in all her messages. She made checking in and out extremely easily and even offered us flowers from her garden! We had everything we needed in the house, including lots of fire wood which was awesome. Just a heads up, it is an older home in the middle of the Catskills so we did notice a few bugs in the house and the place smelled a little musty at times. We kind of expected that so it really wasn't a big deal. Overall we would come again because of the prime location and Carla's wonderful hospitality!

The decor is warm and charming. There are many little seating areas outside to enjoy the property, the best being the one down by the stream at the fire pit.

This cabin really made us feel like we are in nature. Carla did a terrific job on the garden and we loved sitting on the back porch for our morning tea. The cabin itself is charming, full of things that Carla has collected over time. It is very cozy. The main thing to note is that because the cabin is in the woods, expect moths and insects around the house.

The house is just magical. The private 2-bedroom cabin is very cozy and comfortable and full of stylish and authentic belongings. Glasses, dishes and even real silverware. The house has such aura, that we felt ourselves at home from the very beginning. The backyard is large with a relaxing area next to a large creek where you can hear the water rushing by. There is even a stone cooking area and a table and chairs down by the water's edge! It is marvelous!! So is the front and back porches with all the flowers. There is so much nature surrounding the house that I felt I was in paradise. I also must add, that the place is very clean. Our host Carla was very kind and welcoming and answered all of our questions checking us in. Wish we could have stayed longer. We are excited to come again!

After a good night's rest on a super comfortable mattress, we spent a quiet morning sitting by the stream. There's a fire pit and Carla provided wood that one could use for making a fire at night. The garden is beautiful, and a restful place to sit and work. Carla also typed up recommendations about hikes, we followed her directions and loved it. We had a wonderful stay. Note: The house is well-marked and easy to find, but be sure to print or write out directions before you go, since cell reception is spotty. Once you are at Carla's you'll have fast wireless internet and you are set.

Writing a bad Airbnb review does not come easy, as I've had varied but almost entirely positive experiences using Airbnb throughout the US and abroad, but this location stands out for all the wrong reasons. To be fair the yard (complete w porch, grills and a fire pit near a stream) is sweet and the location is great, however the dark, cluttered cabin is crammed full of knickknacks and furniture, leaving little room for guests, and is desperately in need of a deep cleaning. Surfaces and dishes were all dirty. Thick dust build up and a dank, animal odor triggered asthma and lodged deep in our hair and clothes after a 1 night stay. My ankles are covered in mysterious bites despite having worn hiking boots outside at all times, making me fear carpet fleas (let's hope). Ironically the booking had a $50 cleaning fee. I seriously hope it will be used for the benefit of future guests. The host is new to Airbnb (we were her 2nd guests) but that does not justify her poor communication style (among which she wrote after we'd paid to say there's a 2 night min, even though the listing clearly stated a 1 night min and the reservation had been accepted...then took a full day to respond to my immediate follow up question about the status of our reservation/charges), or the fact that she rudely told us to water the potted plants before we left the next day (a request we'd have been happy to oblige if it had been asked an appropriate way). I could go on, but in short...there's so much opportunity for improvement in what could be a lovely place.

I am so sorry you did not like the house and it did not meet your standards. I have rented the house for about 8 years through Home Away and have wonderful reviews. Many people come back repeatedly and seem to love the uniqueness of the house and yard. I have the house professionally cleaned after each renter, and I assure there are no bugs in the house. The house cleaner never cleans the dishes and it is up to the renters before you, but I will now check them myself. All the sheets and towels are new and I even iron the sheets before the beds get made. I always meet the renters at the house to show them around. Others find it helpful and friendly. I certainly did not mean to be rude when I asked you to water the plants in the pots. There are just a few and it was 90 degrees. I work hard on the gardens for the renters to enjoy. I just signed up with Airbnb last week. I thought I did write 2-night min in my information, but it did not go through. I also thought I answered all your questions. I do not text as cell phones do not work where we live. I have to check my computer to answer all the questions. I do feel terrible that you were unhappy with your stay. If you would like to come back for a night it is on me.
