Rustic cedar cabin embodies coziness and warmth, making it a perfect vacation home for couples, families, or groups of friends seeking a peaceful nature retreat . Very private: near the end of a quiet dead end road bordering "forever wild" woods. 10-15 minute drive away door to door to Bellaerye Ski resort; beautiful part of the Catskills (with many nearby hiking trails in the park) as well as access to local quaint villages with farmer's markets, mom and pop stores and local friendliness.
Home (interior and exterior) - cedar wood planks. Comfortable, cozy, clean home of 1260 square feet - 3BR and 1.5 BA. Recently remodeled throughout, including near full renovation of upstairs bathroom with deep soak tub and rain shower.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and bake, including dishes, cookware, and cooking staples such as spices, olive oil, flour, sugar, coffee, tea, etc.
Bed linens, towels, shampoo and conditioner, iron and hairdryer are all provided.
There is a washer/dryer for your use.
Outside there is a nice sized deck with lounge chairs (green cushions are stored either under stairs or in downstairs BR closet).
New bluestone patio is being installed with fire pit at lower part of yard by the woods. Will be completed and ready for use by guests as of December 1, 2016. Couple of main patio/fire pit safety and general rules:
1. Do not burn excessive amounts of wood at one time (no bonfires); this can cause safety issue if pit overheats and can make bluestones too hot and explode
2. No splitting of wood on patio or fire pit (can crack, break stone).
3. Do not place burning or blackened wood on patio or fire pit rim (can cause permanent burn marks on stone)
4. Do not place burning, coated, blacked wood into the woods (can cause brush and forest fire if leaves, grass, brush catch fire). Breaking any of these rules can cause damage to patio or woods and guests would be held responsible for damages - costs.
Access to entire home - all bedrooms, closet space to hang clothes and some dresser space as well. Guest access to entire yard within stone walls - you can also hike on city/state Forever Wild land across the road from our home (you will see signs). Guest access to our patio and fire pit area and the use of wood for fire pit. Wood for wood stove in house is supplied inside the home on circular firewood holder.

Другие важные подробности
If you are looking for privacy within nature, you have found the place. We are very close to the end of a dead end road. The town maintained road is has very few homes towards the end (large private parcels of land, woods, including Forever Wild land is adjacent to our property). One can only see one other home from one of our 2nd floor bedrooms (barely seen through some trees and across a large open field @ 500 yards away).
We do not have wifi internet or cable tv service for the home, but are located towards top of moderate mountain which does receive good consistent cell phone service and cell phone internet service (through Verizon at least). In one of the bedroom's there is a television and dvd player (with a binder of children and adult movies); there is also an old fashioned video store in Margaretville which carries new releases (located under the Crazy River Cafe; it is called Now and Then Video).
No smoking in home for respect of us and future guests and for fire safety (within cedar wood constructed home).
Please do not wear outdoor shoes inside the home (to keep the home overall clean for yourselves and ourselves, so as to not have dust/dirt on rugs/carpet, and to lessen likelihood for those with allergies such as ourselves)
Talk to us about events or parties (i.e. if done respectfully of the house and area); main thing as to why checked above for no parties is to not have large parties with drinking that could cause issues and be rough on the house.
