About Frankie and Andrew

Frankie works in fashion in New York City and Andrew is a Contractor.

Frankie and Andrew purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Frankie and Andrew chose Catskills

We purchased this property because we were breath taken by the beauty and peacefulness of this piece of land and charming cabin. This house is nested up on a hill with it's very own creek. We also found that this area is very close to ski resorts and tubing in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This romantic getaway delivered everything we hoped for and more. Sophisticated/rustic atmosphere beautifully situated on a picturesque stream. The cabin was perfectly appointed with all the things that matter: crisp linens, fluffy towels, tall shower head with lots of power, fully stocked kitchen and lots of privacy. It was luxury in the woods all the way. Would go back in a heart beat. In fact, we intend to!"

Fantastic private retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cabin and there is very little to dislike about it if you're looking for a private Catskills retreat. This home is very well reviewed and I will only offer a few things that I think are less well noted in the reviews that I had read prior to booking.

I visited the cabin a few days after a big snowfall (circa 2 feet of new snow) and the driveway and walkway were cleared for my arrival. I had read an earlier review noting that the cabin gets cold on winter nights and I did not have the same experience. In fact, with the wood stove going, I learned that I had to tone down the heaters to remain comfortable and not sweat.

A second point that is somewhat undersold is just how well situated this house is on the property. It sits well set back from the road, in a deep hillside that provides dramatic scenery (roaring stream, steep wooded hills) and offers tremendous privacy. I look forward to going back at a time of year when more time can be spent sitting outside.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 1-year old, and I had a lovely stay at Frankie & Andrew's cabin earlier this fall. The cabin was immaculate - not a single amenity was overlooked. The small, but very functional kitchen was fully equipped, the living area was comfy and well-appointed, and the bedrooms were quiet and peaceful. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor area, with its lovely setting next to a small creek and gorgeous patio overlooking the property. Our 1-year old certainly enjoyed rolling down the grassy hill next to the house! The cabin is also so centrally located for all of our local activities - close to the cute town of Phoenicia, not too far from Hunter Mountain, and close to lots of hiking and other outdoor activities we enjoy. We hope to return for another season - hopefully winter next time for some skiing! It certainly looks like a perfect cabin for a cozy winter stay! Thanks again, Frankie & Andrew!

Comfortable Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We went up for a few days of hiking and outdoor activity. The cabin is very comfortable, and the location next to the stream is very pleasant and relaxing. The owners were very attentive and checked in on us to make sure that everything was okay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Catskills.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We went up for a a quick ski getaway and were so pleasantly surprised at just how wonderful this cottage was. I agree with the other reviews the house is even better than the pictures allow it to be. The decor is rustic-chic and is well stocked for all your needs. The woodsy location allows you to escape the hectic pace of life, yet you are just down the road from the town of Phoenicia. Our only word of caution would be that the driveway and walkway to the front door can be quite slippery after any snow or ice storm in the winter, making it difficult for the elderly or disabled.

We highly recommend this for a woodsy getaway!

Magical Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is truly wonderful. There is rarely a case where the actual home is prettier than the pictures . In this case, the beautiful pictures do not do it justice . It is beautiful. The cabin itself is very comfortable. It is decorated in a way that is perfect for the setting. There is a true live stream in the back. I had the privilege of staying for ten days. My days were filled sitting by the stream. Sometimes I built a nice fire by the stream. S'mores and hot chocolate were long over due treats. Truly a magical experience for folks like me that stay over-stressed most of the time.

The owners are very very nice and go out of their way to make your stay extraordinary. I am hopeful I will return soon.
