Overview

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.

Immaculate & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend while in town for a wedding and loved it. The hosts are responsive, and the property is extremely comfortable and well-maintained. It's a short driving distance into the heart of Hobart.

Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home - even nicer than in the pictures if you can imagine! We were there for a few days last week to celebrate our anniversary and to disconnect from the city. We were looking for a mountain escape that offered a beautiful view - this home really blew us away! When you first walk in - of course you are so taken by the view - you can sit there all day and gaze - so breathtaking. Everything is spotless and clean - and so tastefully decorated. No detail has been overlooked in the house - the well-equipped kitchen really had everything i possibly could have needed; the living room was sooo comfortable and cozy (nice TV, games, books, etc); the bedrooms were so nice - and the beds and linens were very comfortable - plenty of closet space too; the bathrooms were well stocked also - really - there wasn't one thing that we were missing, wanted or needed - it was all there! Plus, no corners were cut - everything in the house - was really nice - from utensils to linens to furniture. The area is lovely - very pastoral and serene - we took at least two rides on mountain roads per day just to appreciate the beauty of the Catskill Mountains. Also - Robert was wonderful with organizing our stay - no detail or question was left to wonder - he was very thorough and a pleasure to work with. We hope to return, and we thank you for allowing us to share a little piece of heaven in your cottage.

Quiet and Very Clean Upstate Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage with my husband and 6 year old daughter for a weekend in the summer. It's very clean and the view from the porch is amazing. Everything in the cottage feels new and modern but still has a relaxed feel that you want in a vacation home. The kitchen had everything we needed to make delicious meals and the house is close to tons of farm stands and markets. From the porch we saw geese, turkey, and deer in the fields across the quiet country road. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this place is perfect. We will definitely be back!

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!
