Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cabin in Elka Park - Beautiful Log Cabin

Winter/Summer Log Home Mountain Retreat

This custom built log home sits on 100+acres of private family owned mountain forest. You will have the ultimate in privacy while still enjoying fantastic mountain views from the spectacular sun deck. This is not generally a rental home as we frequently spend time here both winter and summer. The home will have a warm 'lived in' feeling that reflects what a vacation home is.

The home is 6mi from Tannersville with many shops and restaurants. Make sure to stop by the Last Chance Cheese Shop Restaurant for a great meal in a cozy atmosphere. Hunter Mtn is 9 Miles away. Here you will find skiing, tubing, festivals, hiking, biking etc. For avid hikers the Devil's Path Hiking trail access points are within one mile from the house. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil's_Path_(hiking_trail)

The home is well furnished and has beds for 10 people. Futon in downstairs TV room allows for two more people. We prefer to limit the number of people to 12. Full kitchen with plenty of dishes, silverware, and cooking implements, will make for a comfortable stay for those who like to stay in and cook your own meals.

The house is warm, with a wood burning stove for those cold nights and radiant floor heating in the great room. There are 2 full bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. Bedrooms consist of 1 King, 2 full, 1 Twin Bunk, 1 with two twins. There is also futon in the basement TV area.

There is a full basement with a large couch for watching TV and a utility room with washer and dryer.

About Robert Jensen

We are a skiing family and we love our home in the Catskills. We have only recently decided to rent it during times when we are not using the home.

Robert Jensen purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Robert Jensen chose Catskills

We travel quite a bit. During these times our beautiful home sits empty and we feel this is a shame. So we are offering it to families who would like to experience a log home in the woods.

What makes this cabin unique

The mountain views are spectacular and and the location is quiet. The short distance to Hunter Mountain is far enough to give you the peace and quiet but close enough to be on the mountain in a few minutes.

The location and home were spectacular! The place is truly one of a kind. Comfortable beds, beautiful surroundings, nice kitchen. The only caveat I have is that you have to carry out your own trash, which can be quite a bit if you are with a lot of people.

Owner's Response: Justin is correct. I have now included instructions, so people know where to bring the garbage. It is also an option to leave the garbage for a fee of $5 per bag. I wish there was a public service that would take care of this, but due to our rural location this is not offered by the local government. A small price to pay for quiet privacy in nature.

Beautiful log cabin

  • 4 of 5

The property is breath taking, and the house is just as described. Clean, welcoming, and beautiful! I would certainly return for another visit. The ONLY thing that may not work for some people is the lack of internet.

Owner's Response: Ruth is correct. I have, so far, not splurged on internet. I enjoy my lack of connectivity as it allows me to truly get away from it all. My kids are not using their phones to constantly to stay connected. The result has been a much more authentic getaway as I have the full attention of my family and friends. For those who MUST be connected this house may not be the best. Although connections are available at various locations in town.

Absolutely beautiful mountain-side cabin which we rented for a week while attending the HITS Saugerties horse show. Perfect distance from hectic show atmosphere - immensely enjoyed the serenity the cabin brought after a long day. Very spacious and beautifully furnished home - everything we needed was available and then some. The hummingbirds and deer brought us back to nature and we enjoyed the fresh air tranquility. Spent our evenings on the large deck with fire going and no bugs. Perfect size for 6 adults and 4 teenagers girls. Robert was extremely helpful with additional information and accommodating in making the reservation. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone and we are looking forward to a return visit. THANK YOU!

Taste of Country Crew

  • 5 of 5

We rented Robert's beautuiful home as our base for the Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter mountain. There were 10 of us a mix of couples and singles in our mid 40's. We could not have been happier. The home is beautiful, tons of space, amazing views and property. You can tell that the family loves their home and the care put into it. We had a hard time leAvibg it. I will definitely be back.

Robert was great to work with as well.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

We will be back next year!

Amazing Log Cabin Getaway for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin this past New Years week and all of us had an incredible time. The cabin itself has more than enough space for the 9 of us to get comfortable and is beautifully decorated throughout. The views of the mountains are breathtaking and the sheer size of the property was more than enough to keep our kids and dog occupied. We were only about 12-15 minutes from Hunter Mountain and the downtown which has some nice dining options as well. We really enjoyed this place and look forward to renting again.

Clean, comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 6 kids ranging in age from 1 to 14) rented this home for an extended Christmas vacation. The house was really clean and we were happy with the amount of sleeping and living space. Especially the game room in the basement worked well for us, since that was where the kids could gather and play while we had a nice quiet time by the fireplace. We came in 3 cars and there was enough room to park the cars right next to the house and to get in and out comfortably.

The weather did not cooperate with us, but we still managed to go snow tubing on Hunter Mnt, which was just about 15 minutes away. We also hiked the Hunter Mountain, which proved a great alternative to skiining, since it was too warm for the latter activity. We were also very pleased with the kitchen, which was equipped with everything we needed to cook and serve our meals for 12 people.

I would definitely recommend this property for any Catskills vacation for groups up to 12 people.
