About the property

Wurtsboro, New York

If you're in need of a peaceful lakefront retreat, look no further than this lovely Catskills vacation rental cabin, ideally situated on the pastoral shores of Yankee Lake in a quiet, family-oriented lake community! This fantastic lakefront home features 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and enough sleeping arrangements for 5 guests. Enjoy the welcoming interior, adorned with classic cabin decor, including rustic wood paneling, and vibrant stained glass windows!


With 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and enough sleeping arrangements for 5 guests to spread out comfortably throughout 1,000 square feet of tastefully appointed living space, this charming cabin is a fantastic size and layout for families and groups of close friends looking for a rejuvenating escape from city life. As soon as you arrive, you'll simply fall in love with the 1.2-acre property's wooded surroundings, on which sits a covered pavilion with a pool table. This delightfully rustic cedar cabin, built-in 1902, was created with outdoor living in mind. Begin peaceful vacation days by sipping your morning coffee out on the large back deck, gently swaying back and forth in any of the wooden rocking chairs while relishing unbeatable views of the dazzling lake - on which motor boats are not permitted.

You'll feel right at home upon entering the abode's welcoming interior, adorned with classic cabin decor, including rustic wood paneling, vibrant stained glass windows and unique lantern-style pendant lights. Look forward to gathering with your companions in the cozy living area, where you can snuggle up on the comfortable couch while keeping warm by the peaceful glow of a flickering fire in the large stone woodburning fireplace. You'll be delighted to find that the residence is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including central heating, wireless internet access, a desktop computer and a gas grill, sure to appease all your barbecuing needs.

After an eventful day spent exploring the great outdoors, return home to prepare a delicious meal in the fully equipped modern kitchen, complete with all necessary cooking appliances. After cooking dinner in the kitchen, head over to the quaint adjacent dining table to enjoy your culinary masterpiece. Later, take an evening stroll down to the lake, where you can sprawl out on the private dock to admire the brilliantly luminescent rural stars reflecting on the glass-like lake - a view that's simply impossible to find in the big city. When you're ready to call it a night, retreat to any of the cabin's 3 inviting bedrooms to rest up for the next exciting vacation day!


Everyone in your travel party will love this cabin's fantastic location! Situated on the beautiful Yankee Lake, a clean Wurtsboro lake with no gas from motors, this property allows easy access to countless exciting activities within the area. You won't even have to leave the property to partake in a variety of watersports during the summer - a kayak, canoe and rowboat are all available next to the dock for guest use. Additional watersports easily within reach include swimming, fishing and boating, just to name a few. In the colder months, embark on a voyage into the winter wonderland to try your hand at activities such as ice fishing and snowshoeing.

The closest town is a short 10-minute drive away, where you'll find a supermarket, along with an array of quaint restaurants and shops. There are plenty of entertainment options throughout this gorgeous area to keep you busy during your vacation days, including winery and brewery tastings, shopping, antiquing and visiting various farmers markets. If you're searching for a little more excitement, the bustling New York City is just a day trip away!

Cozy, full of character, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

For the 8th time, we had the greatest experience of a weekend away from all the hassles of a routine life. This small, cozy, and beautiful cabin gave us a chance of enjoying the lake, the nature around it, the history of the cabin, and of course our time. Highly recommended!

Perfect cozy weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this cabin! It was the perfect warm winter getaway we were looking for, with a great fireplace, lots of board games, and an expansive snow-covered lake. Five of us spent the weekend and had enough space for all of us at the cabin. The and the host provided very clear information and everything was well stocked and organized, with all the kitchen appliances, wood, games, outdoor gear, and linens we needed. We are looking forward to going back in summer to check out the lake when its unfrozen!

Cozy, beautiful cabin. However ,

  • 3 of 5

I just wanted to start off by saying that the property is quaint and cozy.tr The only setbacks we encountered were that the property was extremely icy and slippery. We tried using a stronger shovel that we brought to make it to the club house and in the process slipped and lost our shovel in the lake. We could not access the pool table, which we were looking forward to. On Saturday we tried exploring Wurtsboro but in the process the road was so iced that in trying to get out we almost hit a tree. The maintenance gentleman did arrive after an hour after we reached out for help but he even did take a fall while helping us. My feedback for future rentals would be better cleaning the surroundings of the house so the guest can use the amenities like the pool table, fire pit and lake area. A better shovel should be provided metal rather than plastic and more salt. Also random homeless dog wandering around the cabin.
