We are happy to share the experience of staying in our beautiful Catskills cabin. These 5 acres are at the end of the road, surrounded on all sides by NYS and NYC protected lands, and sited at the base of a well-loved trail for great day or overnight hiking and snowshoeing.
The cabin was built in 1840, and rests on an original dry laid stone foundation. Originally built as a barn, it was well sited for sunlight all day long, which beams through the windows upstairs and down. It is situated above a mountain stream, with a fresh water well. Off the driveway are engraved early-1900's stone steps built for dismounting from your horse carriage. Numerous old apple trees and giant mountain ash, pine, oak and maple trees surround the property and make for beautiful summer, autumn, winter and springtime landscapes.
The cabin has three bedrooms and one loft, with two queen sized beds and two single platform beds.
Bedroom #1: The upstairs master bedroom has north-facing windows toward our stand of large lilacs, has a queen bed, and is the coziest in the winter with the woodstove going.
Loft: There is a nook in the upstairs loft with a single platform bed.
Bedroom #2: The 2nd bedroom is downstairs, southwest-facing for morning and afternoon light, and has a queen bed.
Adjacent to the 2nd bedroom is a laundry room with washer/dryer and a work desk. We often put a pak n' play in this room for youngsters.
Bedroom #3: The side room off the livingroom downstairs has a single platform bed. This room has a barn door and screen door that can be opened from May - October, and is lovely during warm days and nights.
The kitchen, dining and living area all are centered around the woodstove, with an open floor plan.
The porch has a roof overhang with lights, and a large picnic table and benches, for use all year and during all weather.
The large rope hammock is strung from the porch overhang to the apple tree and we keep it up May - October.
Indoors is a full bath with shower and tub. In the summer months (May - October), the outdoor shower is a wonderful way to end a day of hiking.
In the yard we've built a fire pit with its own wood pile, and circled by logs for roasting marshmallows and watching the stars.

Другие важные подробности
There is no wifi! We have a cell phone booster inside the house for your use as desired. We turn our phone into a hotspot to provide wifi to another one of our personal devices.
DRIVING: We are in the mountains. During snowy winters, it's advisable to drive to the house in your AWD or 4WD vehicle. The town quickly and diligently plows the road all the way up to the end of our driveway, a mere 20 steps from the front door. However, the curves in the road up and down the mountain are tight and slippery in ice and snow, especially at night. We cannot be responsible for guests unable to reach the house, or getting stuck in their cars!
WOODSTOVE: The woodstove is available to November - April guests. The woodstove is an amazing and extremely efficient source of heat, but must be operated with care and may never be left unattended. Instructions for proper use provided in cabin. There are 2 other sources of heat in the cabin in addition to the woodstove to supplement as desired: electric baseboards and a kerosene monitor.
NO WIFI: There is currently no wifi (the town is putting in a cable up to the end of our road in 2018!). We have a cell phone booster inside which brings your cell signal up in close proximity to the device. We turn our cell phones into hotspots if we want wifi on another device. Instructions in house.
GARBAGE: Please never leave garbage outside. We love bears but we do not want to host a bear picnic. At the end of your stay please leave with all your garbage and recyclables. Directions are in the house for nearby dumps open every day per week except Wednesdays.
Hi! - We are Beka, Alex and Oscar, and we love to travel and visit family and friends around the country. We also spend down time all year long at our home in East Jewett, NY.
We're happy to share our East Jewett cabin with other airbnb guests when their travels take them to the Catskills! We work with our lovely co-host, Jordan, to make this happen for you.
