Phoenicia, New York
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
The Catskills, just 2 hours north of New York City, provide an incredible escape in a truly pristine natural environment. Because our area is all state land, you will not find any of the development that plagues the rest of our country. Towns stay small but full of culture and nature stays wild and full of beauty here. In all seasons, the Catskills are a remarkable place!
The sweet town of Phoenicia is a real town, with a grocery store, post office, a few shops and restaurants, and the best breakfast place in the world, Sweet Sue's. Cross country ski for free at nearby Wilson State Park - or visit groomed trails at Belleayre or Tannersville.

Beautiful pet friendly cabin
My friends and I spent the last few days of March at this lovely cabin. It's conveniently located just 2hours from NYC. It's rustic charms blend seamlessly with the outdoors. There is a very cute claw-foot tub/shower. The kitchen is fully stocked and great to cook in. The woodstove/fireplace is easy to use and keeps the whole cabin cozy. The owners save you time and money by providing ample firewood. They are nice enough to let you bring your pets along which really makes the cabin feel like home. Woodstock is a great place to shop for and hang out for the day. Slide Mountain is my favorite hike and is located pretty close to the cabin. Boiceville,NY is the most convenient place for groceries and adult beverages. The Phoenicia Diner has great food and wonderful service. What a wonderful place to stay!! Thank you, Evelyn.
Wonderful Escape From the City
My boyfriend and I escaped to the cabin from NYC for a long weekend with our fur children. Booking the stay was easy and Evelyn was a pleasure to correspond with. We had a small mixup when reserving our dates, for which Evelyn was apologetic and the recompense was more than adequate.
I was concerned with what we would do for fun as I have never been to the Catskills in the winter. This was absolutely unnecessary - we barely even left the cabin! The cabin was beautiful inside and out. The fireplace heats the home perfectly plus provides a calming warm glow and delightful aroma. The kitchen was fully stocked with requisite equipment and spices. However, being vegan we elected to bring some of our own cookery and spices that we knew we needed. Additionally, I was very happy that the cleaning products used and available were for the most part natural and cruelty-free.
Finally, not only did we enjoy our stay but our animals had a blast! We immensely appreciate that pets were allowed and that pets was not limited to dogs. Our dog did love running in the snow and sitting with us on the couch. Our blind cat, however, quite possibly enjoyed the cabin more than anyone (human, cat, or dog) who has ever stayed there in the history of its existence. During the day he laid on the rug in front of the fireplace. In the evening he pounced and ran around while playfully mewing.
Overall this was exactly what we were hoping for and more. It had the warmth of a home away from home and we left feeling peaceful and relaxed. We hope to become regular visitors.
Idyllic and beyond expectation!
We couldn't adore this cabin or the time we spent in the area more. The cabin is rustic, charming, cozy and comfortable. The fireplace is enchanting, and so is the property--hearing the constant rush of the nearby creek was an unexpected and welcome surprise. We saw more stars than we have in years. The cabin is set far enough away for peaceful quiet but is conveniently close to Woodstock, downtown Phoenicia, Hunter and all the hiking our hearts desired. Our dogs especially appreciated being welcomed and enjoyed their mini vacation. A long weekend was not enough!
The cabin was just what we were looking for; it was close to hiking and good restaurants, but had the feel of being entirely secluded. We appreciated that the cabin was rented to us on very short notice and that Evelyn took the time to tell us all we needed to know on our drive up to the Catskills!

Beautiful and relaxing
A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights to get away from the city. The cabin was super comfortable and beautifully situated. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed our winter getaway in this cozy and comfortable log cabin! We were able to enjoy long scenic hikes as well as a lazy day by the fire as we watched the snow fall around us! Our dog enjoyed the freedom and fresh air as much as we did...if not more! What a great place to disconnect from technology and reconnect with your family and nature
My husband and I stayed here and we can hardly find the words to describe this place... Magical would be one word.
The home is so welcoming,clean,comfortable and mostly relaxing. Everything you need is there,
The locals very friendly and helpful.
One of the best features of this home is its surroundings, quiet,private and amazing countryside.
We recommend this place.
Very cozy cabin in beautiful Catskills
I stayed here with my husband, our two young sons and friends of us during a beautiful long weekend in Fall 2011. The cabin is fantastic, all wooden, very nicely decorated and it's super cozy with a fireplace. We enjoyed the surroundings (hiking, cute villages) as well as simply spending time in the cabin - it's the perfect place to wind down with a nice home-cooked meal and reading by the fireplace. We had a great stay and hope to come back - certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy and comfortable place to stay in the beautiful Catskills!

Great place to get away for the weekend
Stayed here for a Valentines weekend get away. Nice cozy space main space,ngood size bedrooms, wood stove with plenty of wood, fully stocked kitchen, and interesting things to do in the area.
My husband, four year old twins and I just had a fabulous stay at Evelyn and Michael's cabin in Phoenicia. The cabin is cozy and beautifully decorated all at once. We had everything we could have possibly needed; fully functioning kitchen, comfortable beds with clean sheets, fire wood, plenty of space and even toys for the kids. The property is breath taking and perfectly quiet as it's off the main road. I simply can't recommend this cabin highly enough.
