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

Beautiful in the winter, wonderful relaxing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a snowy weekend here with another couple, enjoying the views and the fireplace. If you're going in the winter, you probably want 4-wheel drive or an SUV or truck - our friends' 2-wheel drive rental car got stuck trying to get out (we were able to shovel it out). This was my spouse's and my second visit to the Cabin on a Cliff. We loved it both times and have already planned our next trip. It's a beautiful home where you can happily stay in and relax for a weekend, and there is lots to do in the surrounding area too. Great communication with the owners and deposit was refunded promptly.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful. The cabin is well kept, clean and welcoming. Phil and Monique go out of their way to make sure that you feel at home. They provide amenities that you would never find in a hotel room. The view from the deck is breathtaking. If you're looking for a secluded cabin on top of a mountain where you can relax by the fire, this place is perfect.

Private and Quite ....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very relaxing week at the cabin. The cabin has wonderful views and lots of light coming into the living, dining and kitchen areas.

The cabin has a large wood burning fireplace that was set up and ready to light for our first evening at the cabin. There was plenty of wood available for our week stay.

We were very comfortable during our stay and the owners are very generous providing coffee, milk, sugar and bottled water for the week.

We would definitely recommend this rental and do plan on returning.

Sweet Escape

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough great things about the cabin on a cliff. The cabin is beautiful, spotless and has a great wrap around porch with spectacular views. There was plenty of wood to keep the fire roaring day and night and a comfy king size bed in the master. Monique and Phil are wonderful hosts that went above and beyond- we rented the cabin for a birthday getaway and when I asked where I could find a good cheesecake they had one made and left in the fridge waiting for us at no cost. While we were there it snowed a good 6", we woke to a fully paved drive the following morning without worry of having to dig our car out. We enjoyed our stay so much we extended it for another night. Can't wait to check out the views in the fall when all the leaves are still on the trees.

Peaceful and private getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in the Woodstock area many times, and Phil & Monique's log cabin is our new favorite. The setting is beautiful, as well as very peaceful and private. The cabin itself is charming, and not one of those mass produced log cabins, but one built by a master craftsman. We sat by a crackling fire, walked along the stunning Ashokan reservoir, and gazed at the night sky. A perfect weekend away.

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 !
