About the property

Charming 2-bedroom country cottage with gorgeous mountain views from every room, located in the Western Catskills. Open floor plan downstairs containing living area with satellite TV (including HBO), dining area, kitchen, and a half bath. Both bedrooms located upstairs along with full bath and separate laundry center. The 300 sq ft deck faces dramatic mountain views. Cottage is new construction -- everything is immaculately clean and in perfect working condition -- with an aesthetic mix of rustic and contemporary touches throughout, such as wide plank pine floors, reclaimed barn board walls, state-of-the-art appliances and custom built cabinetry with soapstone countertops. Free wifi throughout the house.

The cottage is located on a quiet country road, 2 miles outside the quaint village of Hobart, 'The Used Bookstore Capital of Upstate NY,' where you will find several antiquarian and used bookstores, antique shops and much more. Plattekill Ski Resort is only a 20 minute drive, and the Stamford Golf Club is just 10 minutes away.

Wonderful repeat experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second stay at this lovely cottage. My husband and I have rented somewhere or another every year for probably the past 10 years or so, and this is the first time we have gone back to the same place...that alone should say how much we enjoy this place. It is comfortable, quiet, relaxing, clean, and provides access to some spectacular hiking and biking. The view right from the living area is pretty great. Plus, they are dog friendly! The owners were super accessible and responsive. No problem giving this cottage five stars, and would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We can only repeat all the five-star raves this cottage has already received from previous renters. This is a wonderful and fantastic home, we immediately felt comfortable and content when we arrived for our week-long rental. It is well-appointed, has a great kitchen, comfortable beds, is warm and snug (it snowed the evening of our arrival), the owner easily accessible. Centrally located in the NW Catskills, a landscape of rolling hills and pasture lands, there is much to do w.in minutes. Or, you may not want to do anything other than simply gaze out the window and take in the wonderful view beyond the deck. We'll be back, to be sure!

Perfect Catskills escape!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this charming cottage. It is even more adorable -- and more spacious -- than the photos show. The location is perfect not only for quick trips to Hobart's main drag but also for easy excursions into nearby towns. Though we also loved just sitting in the living area and enjoying the view. The house is comfortable, well designed, and altogether lovely; Bob and Tracey have thought of every detail. They were wonderful hosts. I also so appreciated that they are dog-friendly. My retriever loved romping in the yard and going on long walks along the nearby Catskills Scenic Trail. We would definitely return. Thank you, Bob and Tracey!

Lovely home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Robert's home in March and were surprised to see how insulated and warm the home was despite the freezing temperatures outside.

Robert was responsive and helpful with all of our needs. He also provided information for things to do in the area as well as great places to eat at if we wanted to go out.

The home is warm, beautiful and welcoming. The view from the deck is of picturesque mountains while the inside of the home is great for 4 people, even 5 if someone sleeps on the couch.

We enjoyed hiking from this location to Stamford but we also appreciated being able to cook and enjoy the home in the morning and evenings. The kitchen is fully stocked with plate ware and all the pots and pans you need to prepare a hearty meal.

It's a shame we are moving to the West Coast, as we'd love to rent this again, this time in the Summer.

Thank you so muvch Robert.

Gorgeous home, amazing views - the perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and the perfect size for a family of four. There's an enormous lawn for sledding/playing and my kids spent most of the time outside. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet get away.
