I came up here with the girl for memorial day and knew we needed some sort of glamping to ease her into the wilderness life. A tent was a large stretch, but I thought a cabin might fit the profile of what would pass for an acceptable stay for a night.
Not only did the Cottage meet our expectations but it far surpassed them. The owner contacted us before hand and made several recommendations prior to arrival. Upon arriving he greeted us with open arms and we sat and spoke with him for about 45 minutes learning of various activities to do, restaurants to eat at, hikes, etc. The cottage is clean and well maintained and so is the surrounding landscape. The views and scenery of the property itself are something to admire and you can find some peace in the Catskill region without needing to leave the property. The refrigerator was stocked with some pleasant refreshments and the cabin stocked with brochures of things to do (which we were grateful for) and the toiletries provided are all lavender. This really add to the wilderness experience and that warm home-y feel.
Essentially I started the trip with this girl who was nervous and gave me a fake excited smile prior to heading up here. By the time Michael sat and spoke to us and gave us the cottage tour her smile turned to a genuine happy loving smile. Needless to say the rest of the weekend was full of both romance and adventure (two key elements to any happy relationship).
Definitely enjoy the area and just sit and talk to the owners they are fascinating to talk to. It will make your experience that much better. In fact we are already beginning to plan our next trip up to the property.
