It is a step back in time to simple summers and cozy winters, yet offers the technology conveniences we can't do without it. Plus, there's an extra bonus... even though Green Cottage has only two-bedroom, you'll love the fantastic 120 sq. ft. studio with desk, daybed, WiFi and faux wood stove for warmth and funky ambiance. Enjoy a little alone time while your partner practices the saxophone, meditates, or studies - whatever your pleasure.

ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO CATS? - When not rented my husband and I stay at Green Cottage with our cat, Otis. If you are allergic to cats we will sadly be unable to accommodate you.
I am a nice person who works in New York City pushing pixels for a big law firm. My husband is a teacher of guitar, bass and keyboards. We hope you enjoy Green Cottage as much as we do.

We are very happy in green cottage and everyday I notice new details to your cabin design. The carefully thought out niceties and provisions are some of the most thoughtful things in more than 15 vrbo rental plus --------. You.do a wonderful job Thank you so much.
We loved this place!
We loved it so much we were plotting immediately how to convince the owners to sell it to us. (OK, not in a serious way.) The house looks a little plain from the exterior, but inside is a combination of retro design and modern appliances/conveniences. It's warm and cozy and a pleasure to exist in -- and pretty much anything you could want or need, from mixing bowls to spare blankets to salt for the icy ground -- is available on site.
For my purposes, the shack in the back -- which is all done up inside and has internet/a computer/heating/a spare sleeping area -- was perfect for getting writing done; if you have a project you want to accomplish, that is exactly what you will need.
The area is terrific. Palenville itself is pretty spare, but you're close to all kinds of restaurants and outdoor activities, and a short drive will take you there. The neighborhood is quiet and soothing (houses are nearby but when we were here, in the winter, things were pretty silent) and it's an easy walk to the nearby river.
I felt very welcomed by our hosts, who we never met, but who seemed incredibly accommodating. And they even let us bring our little dog! Thanks again for a great experience. We'll be back.
We can't say enough about the Green Cottage! It was the perfect place to spend the Thanksging holiday with loved ones, a beautifully designed, thoughtfully updated home with all the amenities and then some. We cooked a giant Thanksgiving meal and the owner went out and bought kitchen items we needed before we arrived. She was always an email or text away when we had a question and couldn't have been more helpful. The Palenville location is perfect, with Woodstock, Catskill and Hudson a short drive from the cottage. We'll be back!
Staying at Green Cottage was a 10 out of 10 for my wife and I. In advance of our stay, Gail (the owner), was friendly and available to answer questions about the Cottage, activities in the area and even suggested bike routes. When we arrived, the Cottage was clean and homey with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. To me, the best kind of place to stay (and host) is one where the details are taken care of and you can just "be". That's what Green Cottage was for us.
The Cottage also has character. In addition to all of the wood furniture, the photos, knickknacks and old books, I felt like I was stepping back into a simpler existence. Yes - there's a washer/dryer and two big TVs - but the overall feel is one of quaintness, simplicity and easeful comfort.
I liked the location, too. Palenville isn't a mecca. It's quiet and residential, for the most part. Approximately 10-15 minutes away are larger cities like Saugerties or Catskill, but the hustle and bustle of those more commercial locations was NOT what we were looking for during our stay. I'm so glad we could visit those cities, but I would not have wanted to stay there. Palenville is centrally located so it's easy to get to Tannersville and some great hikes near North-South Lake or to one of the other cities I named for provisions and more dining options.
Lastly, I liked that Gail stayed in communication with us during our stay. Via email, her presence was always there, but never obtrusive.She's obviously an experienced host because she knows how to help us feel safe and connected. I really felt like she was handing us the keys to her wonderful home and saying, "I really want you to enjoy this, so please let me know how I can make your stay wonderful." What more can you ask for?

Our stay at Green Cottage was absolutely delightful and relaxing!
We enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return.
The listing description was accurate (location, layout, resources). The picturesque property is very clean and well-maintained. Gail provided excellent customer service. Michele and I highly recommend The Green Cottage for your next stay in the northern Catskills. The grounds are peaceful and a great place to unwind. Be sure to visit nearby Saugerties (town and village) and charming Woodstock. We enjoyed the fresh apple cider donuts and fresh cow's milk from nearby Vinny's Farm Market on Route 32 in Saugerties. The Mexican food from nearby El Rancho restaurant was delicious and fresh.
The house was immaculate, and beautifully put together. It was the perfect place for a Catskills get-away. And the host is wonderful.....Gail is the perfect balance of available and accessible, but let's you relax and enjoy the property/vacation once everything is settled.
The photo's are accurate so you already have a picture of how cute this cottage is when you arrive. Gail is a great host and it means that it's just like being in a friends home. Although the inside is vintage the TVs aren't and there is Roku for our teen son to watch Netflix. It was lovely to sit outside and enjoy nature in the lovely weather. Everything is clean, tidy and comfortable.
This cottage would be just as lovely in the colder weather.
We would recommend The Woodbury and The Red Onion for great food and a trip to the Saugerties Lighthouse for views along the Hudson.
