Experience total privacy and relaxation in our magical log cabin on 10 acres of woods, 90-minutes from NYC! Our home sits atop a bedrock cliff, with gorgeous, untouched Shawagunk mountain views and the peaceful sounds of the river and 30-ft. waterfall running below. The cabin is wonderfully cozy yet feels spacious, rustic while having every modern amenity provided to you. Enjoy total seclusion close to so many things to see and do....best of both worlds!
This adorable 1951 red log cabin oozes charm, with so many little places to hang out. Make your morning coffee in our modern kitchen, then rest on the deck directly above the waterfall, watching the sun rise over the mountain.
Laze away on our outdoor chaise lounges, while watching the hawks or glider planes soaring overhead. On a rainy day, enjoy the screened-in breezeway with a warm wool blanket and a board game. Fire up the BBQ and grill local veggies, then dine al fresco under the stars. Unwind with a bubble bath in our claw foot bathtub, while sipping a glass of organic wine from nearby Bashakill Vineyard, and looking up at the stars through the giant skylight. In cooler months, enjoy our wood-burning fireplace while listening to a record. Pop some popcorn and put in a DVD from our collection before snuggling up on our super-comfy couch.
Stop and enjoy Woodbury Commons (jct hey 87 and 17) or Castle Family Fun Center (go-carts, mini golf, on rte 17) on your way up or back from NYC!
