About Maureen/Paul

This property has been in my husband’s family for generations. We replaced the old cabin October 2014 with a new one. We are very excited to be able to now use this home all 4 seasons. This winter the family skied, toured the Vanderbuilt and Roosevelt Mansions in Hyde Park and ate in the Culinary Institute. We hiked up Mt Tremper - the trail head is 5 minutes away. My son is interested in hiking the Catskill Peaks!! We have been playing tennis near buy.

Maureen/Paul purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Maureen/Paul chose Catskills

My husband's family is from this area. It is a large, private piece of land with a secluded swimming hole on the property. My husband loves the accessibility to the Catskill peaks for hiking and he is a flyer and enjoys fishing. My son the chef, learns from the international cuisine and the Culinary Institute is a short drive away. We all enjoy the birds, nature, swimming and Phoenicia and Woodstock Village.

What makes this cabin unique

The property has beautiful stone walls that my husband’s Father built. The swimming hole is fabulous. Although the property is mature you have the comfort of a brand new cabin. WiFi/Phone available. The 2 sets of French Doors, gas stove/fire place, and Pine Logs make the cabin warm and inviting. The screened porch is the best room in the warmer weather. The hand made Cherry and Oak Furniture enrich the decor inside. There are 9 acres to play, rest, explore, watch nature. It is located by Woodstock Hamlet, Phoenicia, and Kingston. The State Parks, Ashokan Reservior, and Trail Heads to hike mountains are all close by.

Wonderful in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We've been hopping from one VRBO rental to the next in the Phoenicia/Woodstock area over the past half-dozen years or so and we've finally found a place we'd love to return to. Everything about this rental is as good as it gets: it's brand new, spotless, super private, situated in an idyllic woodsy setting, and it's close to both Phoenicia and Woodstock. To top it off, it includes access to a private swimming hole that's truly sublime---probably the best I've ever seen in decades of coming to the area. In addition, the owners are thoughtful, very responsive, and won't hover over you during your stay as many others insist on doing. The only drawback is having to leave--we can't wait to come back soon!

The Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful property! I stayed this weekend and had a marvelous time. The home itself is nestled in woods with all the peace and tranquility that has to offer. That said, there are any number of wonderful things and places to go and see within a very short distance. If you like to hike, you will be spoiled for choice for any number of first rate hikes in the immediate vicinity. No matter the season, this is an art or nature lover's treat! There are great places to eat, galleries, playhouses, even the Zen Monastery, all nearby.

The house itself was delightful and very clean. Newly built, it is well insulated and was very comfortable. All needs have been thoughtfully anticipated. The host was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with directions and recommendations. I'm already looking forward to another stay! Thanks again!

Beautiful New Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My family and I went on a little summer vacation to escape our busy lives in the city so we rented this beautiful brand new cabin in the Catskills. As soon as we walked in the cabin it excelled our expectations. We loved the brand new wood smell and then fact that the cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. All sheets and towels were new, neatly organized and clean. The property was well maintained and we really enjoyed making s'mores on the fire pit outside. The owner Maureen was very nice and helpful with directions, things to do as well as making the rental process simple. She even made sure to send us our deposit back very promptly. The only reason I did not give this property 5 stars is because there was no cel phone signal or landline. I have a 6 month old baby so I was worried that in case of an emergency we would have to drive 15 minutes away in order to get phone signal. There was no cable TV or WiFi either. The owner Maureen did mention the cabin was brand new and because of that reason they didn't have any of these services yet but that they are on the works to get all these amenities installed soon. I will definitely come back with my family in a near future and hopefully be able to use the extra amenities. This cabin also haves a fully equipped kitchen (Fridge, Stove, Utensils, Cups, Plates, etc) with the only con that they do not have any microwave which was a bummer since we had brought some microwavable popcorn and also there are no fans. It can get a bit hot in the summer time there but not uncomfortable. I brought a fan with us and it helped making the temperature inside the cabin pleasant. The wrap around porch was very nice and cool which made up for the lack of fan or AC inside. Hopefully they will add these features in the future. I was hoping the cabin was closer to Woodstock however its not too far away. Cabin is about 20 minutes from Woodstock and 10 minutes from Phoenicia so we got to visit both lovely towns. In a whole we enjoyed our stay and liked that they have board games on site which made our family time more enjoyable. Looking forward to our next visit!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our cabin and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. 8/29/15- We now have WiFi / Phone Service and a Microwave oven !!!! (I just want to mention, the cabin will always be accurately advertised. At the time of this guest visit- we did not have WiFi/Phone. We had not advertised having these services and in addition: I verbally at booking and later in writing when I sent directions, reminded previous guests that the cabin did not- at that time- have these services). We look forward to having you as a guest again. Maureen
