Description
The Space

Find our cabin tucked in amidst the mountain views on 3 acres. Located 2.5 to 3 hours from NYC in the Catskill Mountains just a half hour to skiing at Plattekill Mountain, moments from the Catskill Scenic Trail and Mount Utsayantha. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor both with queen beds and an open loft accessible via spiral staircase offering additional sleeping space with one full bed. An eat-in kitchen features a picture window where we often spot deer, wild turkeys, and on occasion coyotes strolling through the property. The living room is warm with pine wood wall paneling and cozy with its woodstove, yet bright with the sliding glass doors leading out to the wrap around deck. The space can perfectly fit up to 4 people quite comfortably, though there is room for 5 or 6 if you don't mind all sharing one bathroom. We do not have cable TV or internet available in the cabin, though Hobart/Stamford does get great cell reception (which is mostly non-existent just over the mountain in Bovina/Andes.) Our land is mostly open but surrounded by a nice amount of woods all around and also a 400-acre dairy farm behind the property. We're located near the end of a dead-end dirt road on Cowan Mountain and surrounded by excellent neighbors on our road. The property is very quiet, and mostly private with only one home across the road from ours owned by weekenders.

Interaction with Guests

I'm on my phone 24/7, always available via email/cell/text message.

The Neighborhood

We are located outside the village of Hobart, and minutes from Stamford, Bovina, Bloomville, & Andes. 26 cabins are located on Cowan Mountain, with the majority being second homes to people from NYC and it's suburbs.

Getting Around

You will absolutely need a car. 4-Wheel drive is a must in winter months on Cowan Mountain, and sometimes needed during very rainy weather if using the actual driveway. Otherwise, if you fear getting stuck in the driveway, you are allowed to park on the road as we are located at the end of a cul-de-sac.

Other Things to Note

This is a cabin in the Catskill Mountains. You'll encounter bugs, mosquitoes, country mice, and various animals on the property. There is no laundry (washer/dryer) available in the cabin. TV can easily be hooked up to Apple TV via a HotSpot account, otherwise TV cannot be used. Cabin has been modernized with brand new doors and windows, brand new "rustic modern" kitchen with updated appliances (including a dishwasher), and electric stove. Furniture pieces we have collected throughout the years. The bathroom has not yet been fully renovated though is very clean and fully-functional. Wrap-around deck includes seating, firewood, and BBQ.

Place's rules
No Smoking. Not Pets without specific approval. No Parties. Since we do not live here full-time, it's helpful if guests take their garbage/recycling with them when departing. All lights must be turned off upon departure, and windows/doors closed and locked. If wood burning stove or outdoor fire pit is used, it's important that ashes are not dumped anywhere near the house. There is a metal bin provided for their containment if necessary. No extra guests over 4 people are allowed unless cleared with us well in advance.

About Michael
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
