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 Catskills

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

Perfect Cabin Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at the cabin in July and could not have been more impressed. The cabin is positively gorgeous - wonderfully outfitted with all the necessary kitchen tools and meticulously clean. The cabin interior was incredibly welcoming and the photos don't do justice how much space is available inside. The piece de resistance, however, is the back deck which beckons to be involved during every cocktail hour and meal. Phil and Monique were lovely and couldn't be more helpful with sightseeing suggestions and being all around excellent hosts. Cabin on a Cliff is a gem and we can't wait to come back!

Beautiful cabin, great location, thoughtful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the Cabin in July, it was great. The cabin itself is beautiful, perfectly prepared, spotlessly clean, and the hosts provided everything we needed. There was even bottled water in the fridge along with a bottle of yummy local Ronnybrook Farm milk! There is a great stereo system (pre-tuned to the local Woodstock station that plays an excellent selection of classic rock and pop) to provide tunes while relaxing and making snacks and hanging out on the amazing deck. The location is quiet and very private.

We didn't have time to avail ourselves of the selection of board games provided but it's another very thoughtful touch.

The village of Woodstock is a few minutes' drive away, great for walking, shopping, eating and drinking (which was pretty much our whole weekend agenda).

The cabin was great in the summer, but it would clearly be awesome in colder weather too, with a big stone fireplace (the hosts had already laid a fire ready for lighting had we been inclined to do so) and plenty of firewood.

What else. Great kitchen, beautiful bathroom, comfy beds.

Couldn't have been happier with our stay. Highly recommend the Cabin :)

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 !
