Want To Get Away For a While ?

Be our guest in a real log cabin tucked away in the high country of the Catskill Mountains. This cabin has six rms and a screened porch:

2 Bedroom, Living & Dining Room, Full Bath, Kitchen, Screen Porch.

Sleeps 6 people comfortably: 1st bedroom has queen bed, 2nd

bedroom twin beds and the living room a queen size sleep sofa.

The cabin sits on 32 wooded acres which has it's own tranquil beaver

pond. Enjoy our outside firepit under the stars.

This area holds whitetail deer, bear, turkey and several species of small game, upland birds as well as freshwater fish so fishing and hunting is in abundance here in Preston Hollow. If Skiing is your thing it is a short 20 min drive to Windham and Hunter mountains a bit longer to Belleayre & Platterkill. This is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of crowded slope side lodging. You can drive to the baseball Hall of Fame, Howe & Secret Caverns and it's only minutes to the Zoom Flume water park.

There are several picture postcard golf courses in surrounding communities.

Major NYS snowmobile trails are within minutes of this Cozy Cabin.

Winter Months: Between December and March.

If you plan your stay during these months you should plan on snow. The cabin is at an elevation that receives snow when most forecast for this area call for rain. Dress for winter, including snow boots.

The road is a private road that we pay to have plowed. Plowing is done on an as needed basis and there is no salt and sand treatment of the road. If you here a horn beep outside, it is the plow driver asking you to move your vehicle so he can clear the driveway. Please comply and move your vehicle as soon as possible.

Four Wheel or All Wheel drive vehicles are recommended during this time.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely mountain home in July 2015. We absolutely loved sitting out on the enclosed porch having our morning coffee and enjoying nature. The home was clean and beautifully decorated and is the perfect space for a couple or a small family. The only caution I would have would be for elderly people or anyone not able to maneuver too well because the access to the upstairs bedrooms is via a very narrow spiral metal staircase. One other thing to note is that there is absolutely no cell service to the cabin. However there is a landline at the home for use. This was not an issue for us and was actually a blessing because it forced us to stay off our phones and enjoy each other and nature. I would not hesitate to book this home again next time we are in the Catskill area.

Owner's Response: I would like to add an update to the cell service at the cabin. We do have Verizon as our carrier and sorry to say (for me) my office can now get in touch with me when I am in my "Peaceful Place". We have also added WiFi so all my excuses not to work are gone. We do have to keep the spiral stair but also have an exterior stairway that goes to the second floor with an upper deck and full size door that leads directly into the bedroom area. Please come stay with us, Paul and Anne

We rented Paul and Anne's cabin for Labor Day weekend. It was a lovely mini vacation! You literally did not have to worry about a thing. Everything was provided, including a welcome bottle of wine and all the linens you could need. The kitchen had anything you could want to use for cooking. The cabin itself was so quaint and cozy. It seemed every time you walked into a room you noticed something different, a cute knick knack or some other unique detail. The four of us plus our old German shepherd were right at home immediately. The girls loved making s'mores over the fire pit and looking at the gorgeous night sky. I can't wait to go back! Thank you Paul and Anne for a lovely weekend!

Great Mountain Hideaway - Paul was Amazing!! .. We found this piece of Paradise and stayed here during our transition between Selling our home in Illinois and moving to New York... What a Spectacular place to stay. We stayed her for 4 weeks while purchasing our new home. We also have Large dogs and Paul was very Accommodating to us. He even put in Internet so we could get our online business done. The house had Everything you would ever need .. The beds were Especially Comfortable.. And the Screened in Porch is a little bit of Heaven..

Best month ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this little slice of heaven for a month and it was the most relaxing vacation. The location, the cabin, the land around it and the neighbors were wonderful.

The cabin itself is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed to live comfortably. The beds are dreamy and because it is so quiet we were always incredibly rested. My seven year old son enjoyed exploring the property with our two dogs, finding berries and spotting deer, owls and numerous critters. The landscape around the cabin is beautifully maintained and the firepit was a huge plus for many s'more making evenings. My favorite feature was the screened porch though. It is in the shade so significantly cooler throughout the day and bug free. My dogs loved it too.

There are many hiking spots close by, adorable towns to explore, fun kid activity places such as waterparks and mini golf not a far drive. If you enjoy antiquing this is the spot to be, everywhere you drive are treasures to be found. Down the road is Paulina who runs a vegetable and fruit stand with the most amazing produce and many local farms offer food to be bought too, some doing Sunday brunches too.

If you ever want to get away from it all this cabin is all you need. You can do as much or as little as you want and this cabin will be a perfect spot to stay in. The best part is that it's only a couple of hours out of NYC!!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and dog over 4th of July weekend. We enjoyed everything about the cabin and the area! Anything you could need for the weekend was at the cabin -kitchen supplies, linens, DVDs, and the bottle of wine! Our dog loved the screen porch and roaming the property, especially over near the beaver pond; he never wanted to come inside. We grilled almost all of our meals and enjoyed the fire pit at night. Paul was super accommodating and we definitely hope to visit again. Thank you Paul!!
