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

Cabin on a cliff was the perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin on a cliff is beautifully situated right on the edge of a forest and just secluded enough to have quiet evenings and clear star filled night skies. Phil and Monique provided for everything you could need for a weekend getaway from toiletries to firewood to fresh milk from a local dairy farm. Highly recommend it for a relaxing retreat.

Delightful Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 stayed at the Cabin on a cliff for a long weekend. The accommodations were great! The location was ideal. We were 10 minutes from a few places to eat and the supermarket. We enjoyed keeping a fire going throughout most of our stay. It was just wonderful! We will definitely be coming back!

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a few days off to escape NYC. This was the perfect place for us. We barely left the cabin! The kitchen is large, the bed is comfortable, they set up the fireplace for our first fire and the deck/ view is stunning.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I came here for a long weekend, and it was the perfect getaway. The Cabin on a Cliff was clean and comfortable and beautiful. We couldn't get over the view looking out over the woods. And we really appreciated that we could bring our dog along. Thank you, Phil and Monique!

Serenity Haven

  • 5 of 5

Quick review: the house/villa is just fantastic!!! Definitely exceeded our expectations (and we rent a lot).

Long review: Communication with Phil and Monique before we arrived was excellent. Directions were spot on. We arrived to a beautiful home, nestled down a fairly long driveway with nothing to see but trees - in full fall foliage!! The house was very clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We immediately felt at home as did our 2 large dogs. Everything was in excellent working order. Phil and Monique have everything you could possibly want in the villa including milk, coffee, water, toothpaste, shampoo and even popcorn!! We spent every evening in front of the fire (plenty of wood provided). We spent significant time on the expansive deck - it was incredibly serene. We even fell asleep outside the one evening!! As others have written, pictures do not do the home justice. Linens/towels were of good quality. Grocery and liquor store close by. It was a very relaxing trip. We will definitely be returning - hopefully very soon!! Nothing negative at all to say about our stay at Cabin on a Cliff!! You will not be disappointed!

Picturesque and cozy

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to describe just how picturesque and cozy the "Cabin on a cliff" is. We chose to stay for the weekend for a "Fall escape" and somewhere that would capture the changing colors of the leaves. The cabin and surrounding scenery ticked every box - great views from the deck and backyard, and the cabin is clean, authentic and very cosy. We brought the dog and there was lots of land and wooded areas for him to burn some energy. All the other 5 star reviews on this place are well justified and we would highly recommend it.

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 !
