My husband and I own The Birdhouse in Hancock NY. We offer overnight stays, photoshoot locations an unusual respite for the weary travelers in the Great Western Catskills.
We've had a great airbnb experience!
Our stay at the birdhouse was great. The accommodations were comfortable and an interesting mix of industrial and vintage elements. Anna, the on-premises housekeeper, was available when we arrived and was quite helpful. Jackie was a great host, working through the booking expeditiously. I would be happy to stay there again.
I would highly recommend a length of any stay at the Birdhouse! The lodging is very comfortable and clean and the surrounding town and area are quite peaceful. Jackie is a pleasure to deal with and will make sure you enjoy your stay.
My faithful companion and I stayed in the Owls Nest for one month. Living in the restored vintage building was safe, private, and rustic chic. The care taker was very helpful and made me feel welcome. The star of the Birds Nest is that it is in the Catskills. The Delaware river is gorgeous, as is the surrounding immense forest ( I was there in Fall )! The other main attraction was it's great location for someone wanting to explore the NE. I traveled to NYC, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.. jumping on the Appalachian trail along the way! I had a great time at the Birds nest, in Hancock, and in NY. Thanks A and J!
My husband and our newborn stayed at the Cuckoo. Everything was satisfactory and convenient. Upon Jackie's very helpful suggestions, we checked out the Delaware Delicacies and Blue Stone Grill and enjoyed both experiences very much.
Jackie is very thorough and responsive. The apartment is tastefully furnished and comfortable. It beats being in one of the motels in the area. You won't be disappointed.
Jackie was a great communicator and quickly stepped in to help with a last minute accomodation need! The Nest was lovely and clean, and just what we needed to rest weary heads! Fab decor too. Would definately stay with Jackie again.
Accurate description, helpful treasue map and a lovely place to make a nest in for the night. :) Thanks kindly Jackie!
Exactly what it says on the site - a really lovely space in a very peaceful and pretty little town. I stayed for a month and could quite happily have stayed longer. Highly recommended for anyone looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings.
The Birdhouse is adorable and comfortable, chic and understated. The apartment is in proximity to many charming eateries and stores as well as daily necessities. It's nestled in a lovely natural setting, with easy hikes and serene vistas in all directions.
The apartment has most everything you need for a stay of any length, including toiletries, kitchen necessities, and bedding.
I would definitely stay again.
A truly wonderful place! Jackie kindly offered us the birdsnest so that we could prepare a vegan meal for my sister and her family who live in Staten Island. During the Thanksgiving holiday, when all was bustling in NYC, we had the pleasure of sanctuary in this peaceful Hancock oasis. Such a quaint little gem, simple and pure, with a sweet bakery down below and the aroma of vanilla wafting through the air. Love~
Jackie and her husband stayed with me for just one night to celebrate Jason's birthday. They are a delightful couple who made themselves at home and even brought me a bottle of organic syrup as a gift - one of the many they produce themselves. They are welcome back to my home anytime. I hope you enjoy hosting them as much as i did.
Jackie and Jason are incredibly interesting people! We had plenty to talk about! Their kids are amazingly bright and curious!! There seems to be a thread of ingenuity and genius in that family with a huge helping of entrepreneurial spirit! They have a fabulous new product called Blue J Syrups which they graciously treated me and my guests to...in a word DELICIOUS!!! How rare is it that guests bring me gifts? I was more than happy that they accepted my offer to take some of my perennials home with them. I expect great things from all of their business ventures! I must say they were unforgettable and fun house guests!
Jackie and her family were really sweet. She was fun and really interesting to talk to and even got to learn some stuff about AirBNB which was helpful. She's welcome back anytime.
