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!

With 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and enough sleeping arrangements for 6 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 languidly 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! An hour and 45-minute drive will lead you to countless world-renowned attractions, restaurants and nightlife. No matter how you choose to spend your time during your stay, don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to return to this spectacular lakefront Catskills vacation rental cabin year after year!

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.

My fiance and I had always dreamed of going to a cabin with a fireplace and when i saw this one I knew it was it. We stayed there from Friday to Monday and it was all and more of what we wished for.The view was amazing and the fireplace and just the whole atmosphere of the cabin and surroundings was amazing and comfortable and peaceful and romantic. They had everything you would need! The Jacuzzi was extremely relaxing. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave.My fiance is an artist and he did a quick painting of the fireplace and left it there for all to admire. We brought more canvases to do paintings of the view outside by the water.We played pool at night, there is a perfect table and right by the water. We used the fire pit as well. It was an amazing time with the love of my life and we will definitely go back next year when its a little warmer so we can go out on the boats and fish and Hike.

thank you for making our dream come true!

The cabin was really nice but my boyfriend suffered terribly from allergies to dust ....the cabin was clean, just we have to be more careful in the future with older homes we book. Lake was gorgeous....great selection of movies too! Had fun on the canoe!

Nice escape for us.

  • 5 of 5

What a treat it was to be able to walk down to the water and swim, boat and fish. Our tween children enjoyed the setting. Playing pool outdoors was a real novelty. The cabin had many suitable supplies (pots, pans, mic, etc...) and things were quiet on Yankee Lake our entire stay. We caught sunnies and an eel, saw the river otter, a few snakes and best all a wonderful close up view of the eagle perched on a tree on the island.

Beautiful, rustic yet all conviences there

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so awesome!! Everything was there, toilet paper, soap, etc! The bed was so comfy. Nicer than mine at home. And it had a whirlpool tub! Nice surprise! I went kayaking everyday and we even attempted to take the rowboat out once. Has a nice little sandy place so you can wade in. We went to 1 brewery or winery each day. The ones we picked were 30-45 min away but a very nice drive. We cooked out every nite so I don't know about any restaurants. I brought all of our own food. Neighbors were a retired couple and very nice. The other house was empty. Friendly people on the lake.

The deck was awesome to just sit on and watch the lake and the hummingbirds. Nice comfy rockers on deck. Saw chipmunks and squirrels and woodpeckers and all kinds of birds. Very relaxing. Thank you for opening your home to us.
