This sunny, 2br 1.5 bath cottage is perched on a mountainside, so you can enjoy the seasonal view of the Catskill Mountains and the Ashokan Reservoir as you bask in the warmth of the woodstove and cook great meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Located on a quiet, dead-end road, it is close to Woodstock and Phoenicia and less than 30 minutes from skiing at Belleayre. Just a 2-hour drive from NYC!

The space

Our house is cozy and sunny, and in winter it has beautiful views of the mountains and reservoir; in summer it is surrounded by greenery. It is super convenient to NYC, yet feels secluded—a perfect getaway. It features a fully equipped kitchen for cooking, a woodstove, one and a half bathrooms. There is wifi, a stereo, big-screen tv, coffee maker—all the amenities you'll need.

Guest access

You'll have access to the whole house and the yard.

Interaction with guests

I am just a phone call away. If you need someone in person, we have a couple of people nearby who can help you.

Other things to note

Please bring your garbage out with you; this keeps mice and bears away! There is wood for the stove. If you don't have experience with woodstoves and you really want to use it, please call me and I can walk you through it.

In winter, the driveway will be plowed and sidewalks shoveled for you.

We enjoyed a peaceful two-night stay here. Just as described. It felt like a "home away from home" and it had everything we needed. The house is filled with a large and eclectic selection of books and games for all ages. We were glad we could bring our dog. It's an easy drive to Woodstock.

Helen's cottage is rustic, quaint, and cozy. Helen made it very easy to find, check in, and check out. Night was peaceful and pitch black. We slept like babies :).

Our stay at Helen's cottage was fantastic. The weather wasn't the best, but we felt right at home hunkering down with beautiful view from the living/dining area, very well equipped kitchen, wifi, plenty of interesting books to browse and intriguing art. It's clear this home is well-loved and we felt lucky to be able to spend a few days of our vacation there. Next time we want to take a week.
