Amazing trip to Barbara's historic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Ok, the very first sound that greeted us was of hermit thrushes singing from the beautiful rock cliffs surrounding the house. A light fog had settled across the yard, which made the spring green glow and the little house look so inviting. Her rhododendrons are gorgeous and were a familiar touch of home, having driven 13 hours from the NC mountains.

What a blessed week the Lord gave. We hiked to Kaaterskill Falls, Plattekill Falls, High Falls in Philmont, Artist's Falls and Bash Bish Falls. Loved the country drives (all the stone homes are especially different for us and just lovely) and shopping/poking around in Rhinebeck. Lunch at Terrapin was delicious. Vanderbilt's house is under Reno right now but the Hudson views from the grounds are gorgeous and worth a stop. Loved the Ashokan reservoir so much and never got tired of crossing it over and over. LOL. Barbara is just a wonderful hostess and her cabin is so comfortable. That hot shower felt fantastic after those rainy hikes. Such a great stay. Thank you so much!

We enjoyed our cabin stay! After days of skiing and exploring, it was nice to have such a cozy and comfortable place to come home too.

Cute Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent two nights here-we wanted to get out of the city for Halloween. We enjoyed the beautiful fall scene through out the property and the starry nights. The house was clean, the back/side yard had ample space for our children (2 &5 )to run around/play. They enjoyed raking/collecting leafs and making big piles to jump in :) There is a nice big fire pit which we used. Theres good heat through out the house for cold nights.

The house has no wifi/great if you want to disconnect and our (verizon) cell phone coverage was spotty at best-but there is a landline.

Barbara was accomodating and bill was very helpful.

Cute. Cozy.cottage.

Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!

If you are looking for a place where you can unplug and totally relax this is the place for you. The house is comfortable has all the amenities necessary and is so charming, each room seems to lead to another room. Our favorite place was the porch, each morning we would turn up the tunes (Barbara has an awesome selection of Buddha Bar CD's) and allow the sounds to travel outside while we enjoyed the final days of summer. Thank you Barbara for opening your place to us!

A great place for hikers, bikers, skiers, artists, writers, poets, cooks, bakers or folks wanting to get away for peaceful solitude, or plan a fun vacation with friends. Near all warm weather activities and close to all Catskills ski resorts for snowy winter stays. 15mi. to Woodstock, Phoenicia and many small towns in between!

Other Activities: Rock climbing, skiing, tubing and spas

Golf: Several 4 star rated courses in the area

Stone Dock ; Wiltwyck ; Alapaha ; New Paltz ; Nevele Grande ; Apple Greens ; Dinsmore

Ski: Belleayre and Hunter are both wonderful day trips from the house. Nestled just about half way in between the two locations, either destination works -or- trying both is fun for mixing things up. Enjoy the scenic drive in the morning and relaxing at the end of the day coming to the full kitchen for fun dinners with friends~
