Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Unwind and connect to nature in this sweet cabin at the edge of the forest. A thoughtful mix of vintage Catskills, modern conveniences, and artistic touches. Wake up and take a hike on the trail, literally just out the doorstep. Centrally located outside the quaint village of Phoenicia and a short walk to the Esopus River. A perfect space to relax and be inspired, or a restful stay for nearby skiing, shopping, or events. Sorry, no pets.

The space
Our cabin is one story with a main living/dining/kitchen space with a sizeable deck. Outdoors, there is a café table and chairs for lounging, plus a fire pit with Adirondack chairs. There are two bedrooms both with queen-sized beds, one is quite large and the other is super cute and cozy. The living room has a wood-burning stove for staying toasty on winter nights and a 32" TV with AppleTV, wifi, a blue tooth sound system. The bathroom has a shower, tub, and washer/dryer.
The cabin is located at the end of a quiet street next to a hiking trail.

We believe in the importance of connecting to nature, of re-wilding, of retreating inward to find ourselves. Living a creative life and taking care of our forest, our community and each other.
