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 Ulster County
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
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.
WOW ! Thanks for a great 5 Star review! We love what we do and when we get a review like yours it makes it all the better. Please let us be your hosts soon again, such Good fun, Phil and Monique
Perfect- Outside and Inside!
Set literally on a cliff and overlooking wild state forest land, cabin on a cliff perfectly satisfied our need to get away and spend time in nature. the stargazing and bird observations were particularly incredible!
yet the cabin itself is really comfortable and Phil and Monique added all sorts of special extra touches to make us feel welcome, like decorating with balloons to celebrate my wife’s birthday!! we had a great time, recommend it strongly, and look forweard to coming back, perhaps in the winter for a blizzard!
Beautiful Cabin !!
The cabin, and the views are even nicer than pictured, made for a perfect weekend getaway.
Beautiful property! Owners very easy to work with.
Everything was fantastic. Will look to stay there again next year.
There's a reason this cabin on a cliff is booked solid through the Summer.
It's absolutely perfect! Phil and Monique have thought through every last detail to make sure your visit is as perfect as can be. The cabin is both roomy and intimate. It is rustic charm, with all the modern amenities you'll want. You feel like you're miles away from it all, but still have easy access to last minute grocery runs. The Ashokan reservoir is a stones throw away, and you're surrounded by nearby hiking trails. I've spent a lot of time in Ulster County and the Hudson Valley. It's a beautiful part of NYS, and this cabin frames those views wonderfully from almost every room in the house. Take advantage of the property and all the moments Phil and Monique have created. Get lost soaking up the broad and expansive view from the wrap around deck. You'll not regret renting this cabin. I look forward to returning.
A perfect VRBO experience!
My girlfriend and I could not have had a better stay at Cabin on a Cliff! The property itself is absolutely beautiful, quiet, and the perfect balance of nature and proximity to Woodstock/activities. The owners have obviously put an immense amount of thought into the cabin, and their effort is easily visible; the personal touches (bread, milk, hygiene products, etc.) were the best we've experienced on VRBO.
Honestly, nothing disappointed. Beautiful view and location, good internet and TV, well-equipped kitchen, comfy linens and bed, great owner communication, clean and extremely well-maintained. Phil and Monique have created a special experience here, and we cannot wait to return.
WOW ! Thanks Chris and Suzanna, thanks for the great 5 star review. This is real serendipity for us as it's our 100th consecutive 5 star review! We love what we do and we work hard at it so I guess it shows. We've had guests from 17 different states as well as Japan , Australia, Norway, Puerto Rico, England,Canada, Brazil, Germany and the Dominican Republic. Truly Such Good Fun ! Please let us be your hosts soon again. Our Best, Monique and Phil
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 !
