About Phil and Monique

We have traveled all over and been to a lot of great places and met some great people. We decided that we would build a unique house on an unusual setting,close to everything ,but secluded on it's own piece of land. It would have to have an over the top view, affordable stay and comfortable. Every piece of the puzzle would have to be hand made and would take years to complete. A spacious layout with beautiful furnishings so from the moment you walk in you smile and feel like your home.Quiet , clean and lasting memories. It would also have romance ,charm and a touch of magic ! The cabin is 10 minutes from Kingston and 5 minutes to Woodstock......Perfect location and plenty of restraurants, grocery, wine. shops and anything you may need, on the way with town traffic, just peace and quiet ! Such good fun, Monique and Phil

Phil and Monique purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Phil and Monique chose West Hurley

This house is hand built from craftsman of a different era. Every piece of wood of wood is from the catskills. Hand pegged oak floors Massive 200lb hand carved front door. Spalted maple kitchen, bluestone everywhere. Every thing hand carved and hand peeled.State of the art build, Very comfortable and quiet, but 5 miles from reality.We haveI high speed internet, cable tv and washer and dryer.Great central air and heat .This home was a 3 year build with attention to detail and warmth.Direct south facing.. To access the 8,000 acre Ashokan Reservoir which is a mile away,Google : watershed recreation access permit . It takes a minute to fill out and print a permit and it's free and good for 5 years

What makes this cabin unique

South facing 70'long deck has best views and privacy .We get a lot of question as to the $1000 security deposit.This house is hand built with great craftsmanship.We worked out a user friendly security deposit with VRBO.All the money is handled by VRBO.Your reservation is completed in two payments.The second payment includes the security deposit. and is not due till 2 weeks before your arrival.If you cancel your stay prior to your arrival the security deposit is refunded within 24hrs.After you departure we check the property that day,if all is well the security is refunded within 24 hrs via VRBO.A email confirming this is sent to you direct from VRBO.This seems to work the best for everybody and we have never had a claim. As questions arise about the new NYS law regarding airb&b's. Cabin On A Cliff has always been owned and operated by the same family. It's registered as a hotel and always has been. Thanks, Phil and Monique

Beautiful Cabin, Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

The house & property were immaculately maintained - and absolutely perfect for our trip. It had plenty of rustic charm with all the modern amenities you could want. You feel like you're the only people on earth when you stand on the back deck, overlooking the forest without another house in sight. I couldn't recommend it more.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and cabin! Even more spectacular view. It has everything you could ask for and more. Phil and Monique go above and beyond with all the little details to cater to your stay — wood set up in the fireplace, fresh milk, flowers, and more. We had a great weekend and can’t wait to return in the warm weather.

Lovely cabin with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cabin has everything you might need, down to fresh local milk in the fridge and spare toothbrushes. On the wraparound porch, the view took our breath away. We didn’t meet the hosts, but they made us feel very welcome. (Very cool decorative items around the cabin!!!)Thank you!!!

A great escape

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this charming and wonderful cabin on a cliff, our hosts and its amenities. The home was gorgeous; the cliff side views were spectacular; and the evening stars viewed from the porch were absolutely breathtaking. The house was in immaculate condition, great layout and the fireplace came fully stocked with all the wood, starter logs and tools you'll need. The house is in a great location and a short drive to hiking trails, shops and restaurants.

This is now our go to get-away from the city destination. We can't wait to come in the spring and return again next fall. Thanks to Phil and Monique for an amazing weekend!

Everything was clean. It really felt like home. The views, the smells, everything was amazing. The cabin maintains a rustic, yet modern feel.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The style of the cabin, the solidity of it, the decor, the fireplace, the old klipsche speakers tuned to 100.1 radio woodstock... The view from the deck and the simplicity of the Travoli radio.. .again tuned to 100.1... we loved the place, so relaxing. Phil met us at 2 when we arrived, he was very nice and seemed a cool, grounded, laid back guy.

..the proximity to Woodstock...

I could go in and on.. we'll be back.

Location

Car: recommended

VERY GOOD DIRECTIONS AS GOOGLE ARE NAVIGATION ARE NOT. Take the NYS Thruway, also known as Interstate 87 to Exit 19(Kingston Exit). Once through the toll booth , bear right onto Route 28 WEST. This Road is 45 MPH and well patrolled! Follow Route 28 WEST for exactly 5 miles till you come to a traffic light. (Stewarts Gas Station will be on your right)Make a left onto Basin RD, Go 75FT and make another left onto Basin RD.Continue on 7/10ths of a mile and make your first right onto Dike RD(not marked). Travel Dike Rd (breath taking view)8/10ths of a mile to a stop sign. Make a right onto Route 28A. Travel Rt. 28A ,7/10ths of a mile and turn left onto Stone Road. Go down Stone RD. 1/2 a mile to #125 on your left. Go down the driveway and bear right continue on to the Cabin. Your Home !
