This property was such a perfect place to go for the weekend. Not only are the owners funny, interesting anf very down to earth but the property had everything! The creek, animals, stars and rain storm really made it magical and something that I'll never forget! Thanks a million and I'll see you again!
We chose the cabin for our honeymoon based on the high reviews already posted. It did not disappoint! The owners are friendly and we really enjoyed learning of the properties history and they had all the local tips for restaurants and activities. We hardly left the property though because of how peaceful it was. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the front porch and watched the deer every night. The creek is private and picturesque. We brought camp chairs, our books and wine to the little beach every day. We can't wait to go back!
This enchanting place is for you if your idea of heaven is a property with a private stream just behind your cottage, where the rocks have formed a natural whirlpool. Or you enjoy walking acres of fields and gardens that resemble a nature preserve that was designed by fairies. This is your type of place if you enjoy a misty dawn watching deers amble by. Or if your idea of true meditative bliss is spending an afternoon like I did, listening to the sound of an afternoon thunderstorm lazing on the couch in the screened porch watching wild turkeys as they stashed their chicks in the bushes from the rain. The historic cottage is unique and very thoughtfully restored. It’s comfortable with enough modern conveniences. Books and brochures to gleam through. The two sided, screened in porch has comfortable wicker chairs, couches, a mini fridge, fans and even lights for night use. I’ve never slept better, waking to hear unique bird calls and seeing nothing but green through the lace curtained windows on all three sides. Then sipping coffee watching a hawk circling above. The location is also very close to hiking, boating, Woodstock, Saugerties, cutepubs, restaurants, antiquing-everything the Catskills has to offer. But what really makes this the best place we’ve ever stayed in, are it’s incredibly kind and interesting innkeepers, Michael and Scarlett. Oh, and their very friendly and beautiful two dogs also. Their thoughtful little touches like the chalkboard sign welcoming you on the porch or their encyclopedic knowledge of the area make your stay even more enjoyable. If they don’t know about something you’re interested in doing, they will find out about it and get back to you. Their hospitable, chill vibe made meI feel like the grounds were my piece of heaven on earth. I felt so sad to leave my Shangrila that I could only pack my stuff up by promising myself that I’d return...soon
Michael and Scarlett were outstanding hosts. The property is spectacular, very private, scenic river running thru the area with pools of water to explore, and rocks to sun yourself. The accommodations were so comfortable, bed nice and cozy, refrigerator stocked with blueberry muffins to enjoy with coffee or tea. Our hosts had ideas of places to see and restaurants to enjoy. We will definitely be returning in the Fall of 2018!
I had an amazing birthday on this gorgeous property! Had a beautiful creek just behind the farmhouse with an ample amount of land to explore. Went hiking in the Catskills and shopped around Woodstock, I felt so at home. The hosts are so welcoming and helpful I miss them already. The place is so tranquil and scerene. I didn't want to leave and will definitely without a doubt will return for hopefully a way longer trip. Thanks a million Michael!
