Near the town of Andes, this sleepy cabin in the woods is perfect for a quiet getaway. You'll have access to all the beauty of the Catskills including hiking, fishing, and canoeing.
This cabin lives on 13 private wooded acres with a peek-a-boo mountain view. Relax on the front porch or lazily daydream on the swings. Take a leisurely stroll along the quiet canopied road or hike through the woods in the backyard. At night, stare at the stars or cozy up by the wood-burning fireplace.
There are two bedrooms in the main cabin. Each bedrooms sleeps two people comfortably with queen/full beds and fresh sheets. The kitchen is fully-equipped with gas range.
There is also an outbuilding with a finished third bedroom. It can be made up for either two twin beds or a combined king.
Outside, you can cook out on the charcoal grill then enjoy your meal on a large farmhouse table in the lawn. In the backyard, try roasting some marshmallows by the firepit.
We're only about a 15 minute drive from Pepacton Reservoir where you can canoe, fish and hike. In the town of Andes, you'll find a farmer's market, antique shops and other cutesie places like that.
NOTE: There is NO cell phone reception, internet or cable access at the cabin, so be prepared for a relaxing, unplugged visit. There is a landline phone available for communication needs. You can also use the TV with built-in DVD player if you need a screen fix. Unfortunately, there is no trash pick up at the cabin. So I kindly ask that guests take waste and recyclables with them to help mitigate pest problems. A compost heap is available though.
Check-in at 4 PM. Check-out at noon.
We all enjoyed our stay, my husband and two grown children. The front porch is perfect for coffee and breakfast. We appreciated the notebook full of local hikes and maps and took advantage of the information for a fantastic hike. Beds, pillows were comfortable and the simple yet thoughtfully equipped rusticity made it a special place. FABULOUS reading material!
We had spent two weeks of non-stop travelling through the Creation Museum, Ark Encounter, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City. We were very hot and very tired and then we arrived at Kat's cabin - it was just what we needed!
The cabin is bigger than it looks and had all the space we needed inside as a family of 5. If it had rained during the whole of our stay there still would have been plenty to keep us occupied and room to spread out a little.
The adjacent Dutch barn upstairs bedroom was large and spacious and meant no-one had to sleep on the couch.
The bedrooms were simply furnished but had everything we needed. The bathroom, kitchen and laundry area were more than well equipped and we were able to cook as we would at home. The laundry meant we could catch up on washing and was also an ideal way in and out of the house without bringing dirt into the carpeted areas.
The veranda was idyllic! We could all sit on the chairs out there and relax in the sunshine, read, chat or just look at the views.
The children ran around the garden and woods, whilst my youngest loved the swing. They found toads, fireflies, lizards, butterflies and one day I saw my first hummingbird - now I know how they get their name!!
We used the campfire ring to toast marshmallows and played 'Pandemic' twice, determined to save the world! We watched videos and listened to music and didn't really miss internet or Wi-Fi access.
There was a bit of confusion over access codes but it was quickly sorted by Kat. We never managed to locate the power for the upstairs barn room but we only used it to sleep so it didn't matter to us.
The welcome book was full of great information on the local area but we could have done with a bit more on the workings of the house itself, what switches did what etc.
Heavy rain on the last night also produced a leak in the living room. It soon stopped and didn't affect us but we were a bit worried.
The local area is brilliant. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere but in reality there are neighbours closeby and it isn't far to the lovely town of Andes. We wandered around, we had coffee at Two Old Tarts, we bought some bits at the grocery store and the children desperately wanted to use the local pool.
If we hadn't been so worn out we definitely would have done some walks too.
If we are ever in the USA again, and in that region, we wouldn't hesitate to go back to the cabin. It was just lovely. Many thanks Kat.
This cabin is absolutely perfect! From its location to all that it has to offer . My fiancé and I absolutely loved it and if the owner ever decided to sell it we would love to buy it ( not kidding ) we loved the old school record player, fire place, grill, swings outside, fire pit and the hammock ! Everything we needed and much more this cabin had! We will be back for sure !
A lovely cabin with everything you need and nothing you don't. Fireplace, firepit, porch (with a GREAT view), and cooking supplies on a private, quiet property. My wife and I went with another couple and their 2-month old baby. It was a very comfortable space for the four-and-a-half of us. Nearby Andes Hotel was a cool town bar with good food - we had lunch and a few beers there on Saturday.
Cabin was immaculate upon arrival. Everything that we needed worked. Driveway was a bit steep - you might need a 4x4 if going in heavy snow.
My girlfriend and I rented the cabin for the weekend and had a great, great experience. Went in February, and had the pleasure of being in the cabin while it snowed. Though the temperature hit -13 degrees, we were warm and cozy in the cabin, especially after making a fire. It was too cold to do the hikes I'd planned, but we had a good time in Andes, the auction house in Margaretteville, and Phonecia.
The cabin is really well-maintained and Kat was very responsive to emails. Seclude and peaceful, we will definitely rent the cabin again. Could definitely see us going back to cabin with another couple; the barn bedroom was cute.
This cabin was very comfortable. I stayed recently with 4 adults. It was spacious enough, had a awesome porch and the fact that you could take a small hike in the backyard was pretty incredible. It's nicely secluded with several hiking trails nearby.
I would definitely stay there again but a longer stay in order to hike more trails!
