This Quintessential Catskills Cabin, built in the 1930s as a gentleman's hunting lodge, on a private 3 acres, is the perfect blend of old and new.
Lots of original wood detail & character, but with updated clean kitchen and baths. Excellent cell phone reception, cable tv and wifi. All of the modern amenities at your fingertips, including brand new washer/dryer.
Forget your worries and escape to nature. Disconnect and swing in our hammock beneath the birch trees. Make a bonfire in the stone firepit. Drink a cup of coffee on the screened in back porch and likely you will see the local wildlife traipsing through the woods behind the house. Lay out in one of the chaise lounges and observe humming birds feeding from our wild flower garden.
When you're ready to join the world again - the towns of Woodstock & Phoenicia are nearby. We are perfectly situated between the two --- so you get the best of both worlds. 10 miles to the east, along Wittenberg Road (one of the Catskills' most beautiful roads) is the artists' commune of Woodstock - known for its galleries, theatres, artisan shops, restaurants and famous artist residents. Then, 5 miles to the west, you get the country feel of Phoenicia, under the shadow of Mt Tremper, known for its famous breakfast spot Sweet Sues, the Nest Egg General Store and tubing on the Esopus RIver. Boiceville IGA Supermarket is 1 mile away.
There are a multitude of activities within driving distance - both outdoorsy and cultural - a full book of suggested must-sees and must-dos will be in the welcome book at the house.
Use of Winne Lodge's sports equipment, board games, poker set and dvds.
Being only 10 minutes drive from Woodstock, yet still having the beauty of endless woods was something I cannot begin to explain. It was perfect. But what I can explain is the lodge. The house is impeccable and classic, invitating, warm, with every single thing you will need. The enclosed porch was pure bliss for dinners, or simply watching the woods. I cannot recommend staying here enough times - I spent a blissed out few weeks and will be back asap - I feel like I found a home, in someone else's home - thank you so much to Christine and co for opening these rare doors up to us. This spot is a rare gem - stay here, stay here - you'll be gushing about it too after you do.
We booked this property just 9 days before we left the .UK ( in haste I guess) but boy oh boy we were not disappointed. Could you get a more perfectly placed, quainte, rustic, and well stocked property. I don't think so! The owners were attententive and personable from enquiry to current day giving us hints on our trip continuation. Location is packed with potential, creek swimming and walks and hikes galore but close to many local events. Please feel free to mail me for hints but sure Christne will fill you in! Ps mosquitoes that don't bite me have got to be the best bonus yet! firstname.lastname@example.org
We stayed for 2 weeks at Winne Lodge and loved every moment! It's a beautiful cabin in a very private location and it's close to all of our favorite Catskill summer activities. One of our favorite features of the cabin is the large screened in porch. It's so quiet and relaxing! The owner, Blaze, is very responsive and helpful. We definitely plan to stay again! Thanks for a great visit!!
If you want to get away, but still be close to Woodstock and Phoenicia, then this is the place for you. The rustic home is set on acres of beautiful woods. If you enjoy the outdoors, sit in the front (very removed from the road) and inhale the perfumed flowers and spearmint. I was reading one day and shared the view with a ruby red hummingbird! If you want a slightly more sheltered view, sit in the enclosed porch and be entertained by the family of chipmunks right in front of the porch. Indoors the lodge feel is complete with a loft-like area, three bedrooms with barn latched doors and a full restroom. Downstairs the open floor plan is pleasant and well decorated. Off the living room space is a well-appointed den, great for kids, with games, videos and TV.
Nearby is the magical town of Woodstock with artisans, vegan meals, quirky stores and, of course, hippies. Fun. In Phoenicia, try the red monkey pancakes at Sweet Sue's, but bring cash because they don't accept credit cards. Also nearby is a wonderful group of four buildings featuring handcrafted pottery, jewelry, sculptures and more. They are located in West Hurley and known as Crafts People. The staff is amazing and will treat you to a tall frosted glass of lemonade, ice tea or water.
Finally, the owners were wonderful. We arrived to a very special gift. So thoughtful. We will visit again!
We stayed at the Winne Lodge for our Christmas holiday for a week and had an amazing time. The house was clean and had the cozy ambiance of a log cabin touched with a great taste. It is located in a secluded area but conveniently near the towns with good restaurants. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking meals. Our dog and two small kids had a blast as well. The owners were very nice and communicative and replied to all of our questions within only a few minutes. We had a great experience and certainly plan to go back again, maybe for the Spring.
I just loved it! It was absolutely perfect. From the quilts on the beds to the screened-in porch, it was everything I had hoped it would be. Blaze organized a binder with everything you need to know for the area. It was up-to-date, which was so helpful. The kitchen was stocked with essentials, which made eating in ideal. I highly recommend this home and hope to stay two weeks next year! Thank you Blaze for making us feel so at home!
