The SpaceThe cabin is spacious with 4 bedrooms and generous living space both inside and out with modern basics like a full kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. There are two full baths and washer-drier on site. There's no air conditioning, but a whole house fan will pull in the cool night air as needed. It's the Catskills, expect it to be 15-20 degrees cooler than NYC, especially at night. Guest AccessYou'll have full access to the house. Linens will be provided as needed. Please be prepared to do your own cooking and clean-up after. Interaction with GuestsTom and Chuck are reachable by phone, but two hours away by car. One of us will be there to check you in and go over any details, we will not otherwise be available except in an emergency. This is your chance to enjoy solitude and independence from everything except nature. The NeighborhoodThe property consists of five acres bounded by forest land on three sides and NYC watershed across the road. The Horton Brook runs through the front edge of the property and the road in to the parking area crosses the Brook via wooden bridge. There's not much traffic on the road throughout the day and often you don't hear any cars.
There are several good restaurants in the area, with the closest being Riverside Cafe & Lodge, which is just to the NW on Old Rt. 17 (local highway, at bottom end of the road, take a right and travel on the Old 17 a half mile, it is alongside the Beaverkill River). There's a Sunoco gas station with mini-mart next to Riverside. Roscoe, NY (Trout Town USA) is the closest major town, about 10 mins away to the SE on Rt. 17 (Exit 94). There more restaurants and cafes as well as the Roscoe Diner, a grocery store, organic market, Sunday farmers market, a distillery, a brewery and many other shops.
Another option for folks traveling up on a Friday is to stop in Goshen, NY at the farmers market to load up on fresh, seasonal produce and other locally made goods like bread, cheese, meat, eggs, honey and pickles! Getting AroundSome form of motorized transport is just about your only option. There are buses to Roscoe, but that will leave you about 10 miles short of the cabin. There's no Uber service in the area. Someday maybe there will be a helipad out front but pretty everyone else needs to travel in by car. There's a parking area near the brook below the cabin, but be prepared to carry in all luggage and groceries. Other Things to NoteThe cabin is yours for the weekend. Please treat it with care and respect. It is a treasure that others would also like to enjoy.
