Great for all seasons and close to skiing (20-40 min from Plattekill, Belleayre, Hunter and Windham), hiking, fishing, swimming holes, restaurants and quaint towns. Walk to downtown Roxbury and Kirkside Park via the scenic rail trail.
Close to all wedding venues - 4 miles to Roxbury Barn, 7 miles to Stone Tavern Farm, 4 miles to The Inn at West Settlement.

The cottage has recently been updated to inspire both relaxation and adventure - cozy, inviting, and nothing too fussy. Everything has been chosen with a combination of the Catskills and a vintage Americana aesthetic in mind. The kitchen has been completely redone, with subway tile, farmhouse sink, and butcher-block countertops (note - no dishwasher). It's cozy enough for a couple/ small family, but can accommodate bigger families or groups of friends, with a dining area, 3 living spaces (one a new sunroom with full wood paneling and another surrounding a gas fireplace), a large deck, yard, and newly installed outdoor shower with full nature views. There are 3 private bedrooms with full or queen beds and 1 pull-out couch in the sunroom. You'll also have all the comforts of home with flat screen TV, wifi, Apple TV, bluetooth stereo, and new gas grill. As the last house on a dead end road, the property is secluded, but also convenient to the Town of Roxbury, accessible via car or walking the rail trail right in front of the house.
Guests will have access to the full house, deck and property, including ~1 acre of lawn and ~3 acres of wooded land. Hike behind the house and make a day of walking or snowshoeing the snowmobile trails, or walk the rail trail to have breakfast in town or visit Kirkside Park (14 acre historic site and park).
