Great getaway

Beautiful spot with access to wonderful hiking - and right alongside a great bar and restaurant. The shack is a lovely property.

Love Shack is Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated space with the owners awesome restaurant directly next door. In a great area of the Catskills close to hiking and other activities. Pete and Diane were super friendly and helpful. Lofted bed is a steep climb so, older folks might consider something else. Otherwise, I would highly recommend.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed at the Love Shack and it exceeded our expectations.

The Love Shack is everything and more you could want for a romantic getaway. It is the perfect size and is suitably furnished that we felt comfortable and as if it was our own little home and we had everything we needed. The location is great, it is rural enough that it is peaceful and secluded but close enough drive to the local amenities

The photos do not do the property justice, both in terms of the inside decor and the size.

Diane and Peter were great hosts and made us feel very welcome, but gave us our privacy.Their restaurant being so close is a nice convenience. The food was very good, home cooked and fresh meals and the portions were large enough, that neither of us were able to finish our meals.

We can highly recommend The Love Shack from our first visit, we will certainly be visiting again.

Loved The Love Shack!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Love Shack and we were pleasantly surprised. The cottage was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The bathroom had plenty of towels with great water pressure for a hot shower. We loved the rustic feel inside the cottage with the loft bedroom overlooking the sitting room. We were only able to watch videos on the TV but that was fine with us. We were not able to get onto Wifi and we had no cell phone service. Out the back door was a deck overlooking the pond with a hammock and a table with chairs for our morning breakfast. We ate at The Country Inn for dinner and the food was delicious. Pete and Diane were lovely hosts. We didn’t see much of them since we were hiking, biking or kayaking for most of the weekend but it was nice to know they were there if we needed something. If you are looking for a truly wonderful stay in the Catskills we would definitely recommend The Love Shack.

Cozy weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at The Love Shack. Cabin was cozy and beautifully decorated. Diane and Pete were super friendly and made us pastries. The pond and woods around the cabin were lovely. 10/10 would visit again.

Lovely winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in pristine condition and decorated tastefully with old wooden beams across the high ceiling, a gas burning stove and comfy couches. We loved making French toast in the cozy and superbly clean kitchen with a country style sink, mason jars and windows looking out to the hills on the property. We rented snow shoes from EMS in Gardiner by mohonk preserve for the weekend (I highly recommend millbrook ridge trail in mohonk preserve for snow shoeing) and took a walk across the pond behind the cabin. We spent lazy afternoons reading by the gas stove. And the cabin is close to Phoenicia diner, great for lunch and stop by ashokan reservoir for a walk on the way back! The cabin has great heat and very hot showers - important when it's -10 degrees out! And last night we checked out the country inn which is on the property for dinner - wonderful family vibe, delicious food and the best beer selection I have seen in a long time. Diane has been very helpful and accommodating to us. Just a wonderful experience all around!

About Diane and Peter

My husband and I bought this property 10 years ago after living in New Paltz, NY for many years. We wanted to escape the 'hustle and bustle' and found this property away from it all. It included a restaurant/bar and the love shack. The fact that the 'love shack' came with it's name added to its personality. After the restaurant and house felt complete, we set our sights on the love shack and wanted it to resemble its fabulous name.

We fell in love instantly with the serene atmosphere and the property's potential. We have spent the last 10 years tastefully remodeling the property. Our goal was to keep it's rustic charm but also bring it up to date.

Diane and Peter purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Diane and Peter chose Olivebridge

It is a peaceful retreat only 2 hours away from the city. Nestled in the mountains, it is the ultimate relaxing get away from the intoxicating worries of everyday life. True pleasures are to be found while escaping to the country, whether for a couple of days or a proper restorative holiday.

What makes this cabin unique

The love shack is nestled near a fabulous restaurant and tavern. So if you are in the mood to go out, you are footsteps away from great meal, a glass of wine and great company. Or you can stay in and cozy up to the fire or watch the sunset from the porch.

Caretakers live in the Inn behind the love shack. It is assumed that you are here to get away from it all, but someone is here in case you need assistance.
