My wife and I travel to the Catskills every summer with our 2 children so that we can do some hiking. This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean and a had all the accommodations we were looking for. It is also loaded with tons of great art that my entire family enjoyed. It is conveniently located to downtown Woodstock as well as many of the nearby hiking trails and attractions. At night we were able to have a fire outside, and also sit in the screened in porch. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay with plenty of privacy.

We loved the rustic side of the cabin with the wide floor boards, wooden walls and open shelves. The newer side is very comfortable and well-appointed. Thanks for allowing dogs, our terrier loved the woods, especially the rock ledge above the cabin.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

We love the rustic side of the cabin as well. It's fun to see how the original builders made the roof angles work and I like the high peak.
I'm glad your dogs got to run around a bit in the woods.
Thanks again!

July 30, 2016

After a pretty hectic year, I was looking for a vacation with the opportunity to just be quiet, rest and put the pieces back together again. I found this cabin on the internet and it appeared to be perfect (and the price was affordable). I contacted Jon and he encouraged me to drive up and take a look since I live only about an hour away. I did that, and from that moment on, I couldn’t wait to get there! I would find myself looking at photos of the cabin late at night and looking forward to my two weeks at the cabin. And it was just as I had hoped: Perfect: clean, comfortable, well equipped, simple, rustic, filled with interesting art, and even furnished with a blanket for my small dog (how thoughtful!). I did practically nothing except sleep, read, pray, study, write, walk the dog, and just enjoy the setting. Just what the doctor ordered. I scouted the restaurants and the nearby town with its many shops as well. There is obviously plenty to do and good places to eat. But the quiet and isolation of the cabin were much more appealing to me. And why eat out? The kitchen was very well equipped and included 2 beautifully seasoned cast iron frying pans. Jon, one of the owners, is delightful to work with and quick to answer any questions. The security deposit was refunded shortly after I returned home. I hope that I will be able to return in the near future and maybe even during the winter. Thanks to Jon and Anne for a wonderful vacation!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

So happy you were able to enjoy our cabin at the base of Mt. Overlook. It's so nice that you were able to just settle in and enjoy the woods.

A wonderful place to stay, close to the highway for easy access and close to Woodstock for all which that little place has to offer ! Jon was very prompt in answering my emails and made it very easy to organise. The place is spotless with all amenities though I was hoping there was a DVD player as I brought several movies with me, still, it was a perfect place for reading my book :) I was so very thankful that my dog was allowed to stay as he is so obedient but still I have difficulty convincing people that he will be on perfect behaviour, thank you Jon for letting me bring him. I definitely recommend staying here. Many thanks!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the DVD player, its actually built into the side of the TV. We may look into changing that setup so it's more obvious.

My husband and I stayed here last week for part of our honeymoon. Driving up the driveway, we instantly fell in love! The property is very secluded and quiet and peaceful. And the inside of the cabin is adorable! Rustic yet with a modern touch. Everything was clean and very well kept. The owners were very prompt and easy to communicate with. We are already talking about staying here again in a year or two. Thank you for the relaxing getaway!!

This is a very cool cabin on a peaceful secluded lot near Woodstock. I especially loved the older half of the cabin with its cozy wood interior and the big panes of glass looking out into the woods. The screen porch was great too. It was hot during our stay but the A/C kept it very pleasant inside. We had a lovely time. Thank you!!

My husband and I just spent our 10th anniversary at the cabin. We got married in the area and really enjoyed our nostalgic stay. The cabin was clean and very cozy. The art and decor was stunning. We made good use of the fireplace and outdoor fire pit. The property is beautiful and full of wildlife. We never even turned on the TV. We brought our young dog, Pepper, with and she loved her first trip to the Catskills. Overall, the most relaxing mini vacation we have ever taken. We will be returning soon.

I'm so glad you had such a nice time! It's great to enjoy the outdoors and wildlife right on our property!

It was enchanting! We felt nestled away from the world but still with wifi which I needed to edit my first ever novel! The blend of old wood and modern clean, working kitchen was perfect. The weather was cold and damp and it didn't matter a bit. Loved being tucked inside by the fireplace. Very agreeable to extend our hours for a bit more pay. There was just the two of us but easily could accommodate 4 with the separation of bedrooms. What a lovely time!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the cabin even in the cold and damp! Love that you had the fireplace burning and were editing your novel. Great setting for that.

My wife and I just returned from our second stay at this homey cabin in the woods in Woodstock. We fell in love with it the first time we stayed here, and as a result we have referred some friends as well. We love that although you are merely 5 mins from town, here at the cabin you can feel like the only people around for miles. The brook right outside the cabin makes it all feel that much more magical. Sit by the fire, enjoy the quiet. Sit in the screened in porch, or by any of the available outdoor seating, and enjoy being deeply enveloped by nature.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much. It is a great place for nature lovers!

My husband, younger daughter, and I stayed at the cabin last week. We highly recommend this property. It was clean, well appointed, filled with beautiful art by the grandfather of the cabin's owner, and in a wonderful location. The owner, Jon, was responsive, and everything was in perfect order when we arrived. The property itself is magnificent: 6 acres at the foothill of Overlook Mountain. The stream that runs through the property is mountain water that runs down from the top of Overlook. We hiked on the property! All of this is only minutes away from the center of town and in the other direction, from the Dharmachakra Monastery on Overlook. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Jon and Anne!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Im glad you got to hike on our propery! It's fun to be able to explore right out the door.

I stayed at this cabin for the second time and loved both times, the owners keep the place clean and ready with everything you need, they allow dogs and it was so much fun seeing then run around in such open space. The place is cozy and peaceful, I love getting coffee in the morning on the creek downhill only listening to the river and birds, as well as sitting by the fire at night warming up and enjoying a nice beverage, I love this place and will recommend to anyone.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

My boyfriend and I met another couple here to spend Valentine's weekend, playing board games, cooking up great meals, and just hanging out and catching up in front of the roaring fireplace. The temperature was crazy cold that weekend so our trip into town was brief, but were able to brave it long enough to know that it was quaint and cute and special, just like the cottage. The weekend turned out perfectly, and the cottage left us all amazed and entertained at all the cute little details, features and artwork that flowed throughout. Jon was great with any questions we had beforehand, and nearly everything we needed was there. He even contacted me afterwards to tell us we forgot some CDs and offered to have them sent to us. I would highly recommend staying at this comfy hideaway, no matter what the season. We're thinking about coming back again in the spring or summer!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Nice place to jusrt hang out. Glad you enjoyed yourselves!

We just returned from a long weendend at this charming cabin. Me and my business partner was looking for a quiet and inspiring rental property where we can work and get our creative juices flowing, as well as clear our head from the hassles of the city. This cabin could not have been more perfect. It is unusual for there to be no snow in this region at the end of January, however this worked to our advantage as we set out and hiked every morning on the beautiful grounds. The Living Room has a Farmers Table that faces a large fireplace where we were able to get much needed work done. In the evenings we lit a beautiful fire, where we were able to talk and get the inspiration we were so desperately looking for. The fact that this is a true Artists cabin with original work from the owners grandfather surely helped us. The cabin itself was so warm and cozy. Every room is immaculate and comfortable.We both have every intention on returning to this cabin with our significant others as well as make this a yearly retreat for us to work.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Nice to hear that you hiked right on our property! I live to do this. With the brook, hills, rock walls and waterfalls, it can be just as nice as going on a marked trail.

My partner and I were looking for that picture perfect Currier and Ives Christmas and this cabin delivered that and more. I asked him what the worst thing about the stay was and he said "nothing". When asked about the best he went on for 10 minutes extolling all the virtues of this charming, cozy location. We even went into the town of Woodstock to enjoy the arrival of Santa on Christmas Eve. The space was clean, well appointed, comfortable and easily accessible. The hosts were welcoming and gracious. For our stay, I would like to give it a rating of 5 angels instead of stars for the holiday.

We fell in love with this cabin and surrounding land. Utterly peaceful, serene and inspiring. I told my husband on the way home that I felt recharged. The cabin is well appointed and very clean. The beds were super comfortable and there was everything we needed. The immediate surrounding land is gorgeously wooded. The stream is right by the cabin with seating at various points to enjoy the restful, rejuvenating views. We will most definitely be back. We have stayed at many beautiful places in and around Woodstock, but, this is, by far, our favorite. Thank you so much! Lisa&Norbert :)

It's quiet and secluded yet a quick 5 minute drive to the village of Woodstock. Working with Jon was a pleasure. He made everything easy and had my deposit returned in 24 hours! Big bonus for me is that it's pet friendly. My Lab loved it too. We'll definitely be making a return visit!

As we are only 3 miles from Woodstock Center, I walked my own dog there, which was an easy relatively flat walk. She loved the brook in town.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Thank you! We love the stream behind the house as well. It's actually a freshet, which is a stream that is full after the winter snow or a good rain. We have used the larger stream at the bottom of the hill near the house for relaxing in during a hot day.

My wife and I rented this cabin for 4 nights over Labor Day weekend. The rental process was seamless, the owner is incredibly friendly and helpful, and the cabin is wonderful. Very clean and well-kept, chock-full of wonderful art, and located in a gorgeous setting. Extremely good location for exploring the surrounding area. We visited Kingston, Saugerties, Woodstock, and went floating down the Esopus in Phoenicia. We would not hesitate to stay here again and are recommending it to our friends. Had such a great time we were sorry to leave.

Great long weekend getaway. The house is cozy and clean and the view and sound of the creek in the back make it peaceful. We spend most of our days at a local water hole where we could swim along with our fun loving dog and stayed in and cooked meals in the evening. We enjoyed a visit to Woodstock for an afternoon which is only 10 minutes away by car. If you love to bring your dog with you on vacation then this is a great place to come.

We just came back from a long weekend in the cabin over the 4th of July holiday. The cabin was very clean, cozy and a good mix of rustic and modern. Our restless 2.5 year old toddler had a great time playing at the creek, picking sticks and stones, and chasing butterflies. Our 6 month old baby was very excited just watching her brother run around and also took quite an interest in the artwork around the house. It was great to have such privacy and enjoy nature at the same time have the option of tv and good wifi. We managed to get skype calls from relatives from different parts of the world who got to admire the cabin as well. We enjoyed going to the town, both Woodstock and Saugerties, and enjoyed Garden Cafe and Oriole 9. Trekked to the Freeman Falls and got to see the parade at Saugerties. We felt we had really full days and enjoyed coming back to cabin for dinner at the screened porch while my son built a fire each night with his papa. The owners were very responsive throughout and heartfelt thanks to them for letting us have family memories at a special place. We hope to come back in the very near future.

May 16, 2015

We could have gone anywhere for our 30th wedding anniversary but we decided that all we really needed was to be alone - to be able to enjoy each other's company. You never know what you're actually going to get but we really lucked out here. This place was exactly what we wanted. Nice and quiet. The property is secluded but close to town - but not walking distance. If you look closely at the pictures you'll notice that the cabin has two parts - old and new where the front door acts as a transition in the middle. So one bedroom, eating area, kitchen and screened in porch are from the original cabin - very rustic and the other half - another bedroom, bath and living room (including a fireplace) are all recently redone. The combination of the old and new makes it very charming. We hiked Overlook Mountain which was close by. A fairly easy hike with a fire tower and the remains of an old hotel. Very interesting. We didn't spend much time in Woodstock. Parking there is challenging. Didn't realize that hippies still existed - ;). Catskill Mountain Pizza was awesome but cash only. They sell growlers of Lagunitas btw - other than that, I do not think you can get good beer in town. The West Hurley Market has the best beer (IPA's) selection I've ever seen in a grocery store. It was one of our requirements that we be able to bring our dog. If you're pet less and concerned about a place that is "pet friendly" - no worries because it was immaculate. Everything you might reasonably need is there. The DVD is not Blu-ray and I'm not sure we connected to the internet or whether it was just slow - but we really didn't care - we ended up watching the cooking channel and loved it - never would do that at home. Thank you for sharing this family gem.

Owner's reply:

I'm glad you enjoyed you're time at our cabin and hiking. Parking can be tricky, I will add some parking lot information to the attachments I send out. I am also going to check out the speed of the internet and TV/Blue Ray. Thank you for the review, it is very helpful.

A Special Place

Let us join the chorus and reiterate that this is a very special place. The setting is beautiful (stream, forest, rock outcroppings), peaceful, and private. The location is great, less than 5 minutes from one of the best restaurants in the area and just a couple of more to downtown Woodstock. The cottage was wonderful: rustic but comfortable, with all of the basic modern amenities including a fully functional kitchen. We had an absolutely delightful weekend there. But beyond these physical features was the wonderful ambience (vibes, if you will) within the cottage. This has been in the family for a long time and obviously holds a lot of history, meaning, and fond memories for them. We felt fortunate to be able stay there and are very much looking forward to a return visit this fall. (I should also say that Jon has been a pleasure to work with in making these arrangements).

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much. I continue to be delighted when I hear that others such as you enjoy this cabin and woods as much as our family does.
We have roots here dating to the 1940's so there is quite a lot of memories for us.
We look forward to your returning to visit our cabin again.

As we approached the cottage, I was so thrilled to see how secluded and lovely the cottage was. It only gets better! Inside the cottage is just lovely! Spacious rooms and a great kitchen to cook in. If you're looking for tranquility, look no further.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

I love coming up the long drive to the cabin and how secluded it is as well. It's so nice that we are at the base of the mountain with only trees and streams around us.

Thank you so much, I hape you can return again sometime.

The building is amazing and has a fascinating history. The owners thought of everything, and everything we forgot was right there when we needed it. Fireplace is beautiful, the land is jaw - droppingly beautiful: hemlock woods, trickling streams, and bluestone ledges everywhere.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Thank you! I too enjoy hiking in our own back yard, there is so much to see right on our property.

Where do I begin? This was perfect for my family and two dogs to get away. We truly fell in love with woodstock and Jon's home. He was so nice and the communication was great! The pictures don't give the home the justice it deserves because it was so adorable. Half of the home was a cabin and the other half felt modern. The art around the home was enchanting and it was the perfect place for me to catch up on some drawing myself. I can't say one bad thing about our experience. It was lovely we made camp fires let the dogs run around, we rode our bikes along the roads and hiked up Over Look. Everything in the home was perfect and don't want to tell anyone about how wonderful it was because I don't want all the dates to be booked. (but I will)...Thanks so much for opening your doors to our family and will be booking in the near future!

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much! I love to hear about the adventures people have while staying at our cabin.

Climbing Mt. Overloook is a classic. There are also some trails close to the cabin that you may want to check out next time around.

Wonderful Experience

August 12, 2014

We had a wonderful week at this location. The setting was marvelous. There are beautiful woods surrounding the residence. There is a creek less than fifty feet from the front door that was great to sit by and relax. The birdlife was also fun to observe. The cottage itself was very comfortable. It has all the creature comforts but is also slightly rustic in a good way. There are plenty of windows so we felt surrounded by nature. The kitchen was sizeable, had all the promised appliances, and was fun to cook in. The screened porch allowed us to breathe the fresh air but still be sheltered. We lit a campfire in the fire pit provided which added to the enjoyment of our stay. The cottage is close enough to places to visit, including the town of Woodstock, but secluded enough to feel like we had enough privacy. The hiking nearby was great; Opus 40 Sculpture Gardens, restaurants, Buddhist monastery and other places were easily accessible. Also, we found communicating with the owner to be very efficient. We highly recommend this cottage.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for this review.
I also recommend travelling to W. Saugerties (15 min.) to drive up the mountain road for some stunning views and additional hiking.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at your cabin. It is so cozy and beautiful we wanted to stay for the whole week! It was the perfect place for us to cook, eat and just chill out. We even watched a little TV - nice to have the sattelite there! The place itself is beautiful, the artwork and all the little sculptures and cool figures were so charming. The property can't be beat! We loved all the wildlife (lots of baby chipmunks that my friend from Ethiopia fell in love with) and were blissed out down by the stream. I stayed in the pretty bedroom that felt like a quaint country Inn and he stayed in the sleeping nook with the amazing woodland views and red curtains that created such a dreamy environment. The screened in porch was terrific. We will tell everyone we know about the place and will definitely be back if in the area again.

Jon or Suzanne Sirotof or Foley

Owner's reply:

It's so nice to hear that you enjoyed chilling out at our cabin. It is such a great place to get out of the hustle and bustle!
I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my grandfather's art! We love showing it and feel that it helps make our place a home.
We also enjoy just being able to see so many stars in the night sky.
Thanks for your lovely review.

We just left the house less than a week ago and I cannot stop thinking about it...I can't wait to go back! Aside from the very clean and comfortable accommodations, the trees and nature around the house are what make it so special. It is very private, but very close to the heart of Woodstock, so you have the best of both worlds. If you love nature, this is a lovely place to stay. The cabin has a very peaceful calming vibe. On a practical note, my security deposit was returned within 2 days of my departure (and that is not always the case with other houses I've rented).

This was the first time I ever rented a property. Jon made it so easy. The house is as described and even better. It is clean and well equipped. The setting is secluded, peaceful and beautiful, yet 3 miles into Woodstock. Jon was so helpful as was his sister with recommendations for things to do in the area and places to eat. We are already talking about renting the cottage again. We just loved everything about it. Robert & Debbie

The owner was easy to work with and was quick to respond. The cabin was perfect for the two of us and our dog but could easily and comfortably fit another couple. The land was beautiful. We took short hikes on the property each morning with our coffee and dog. We also made a wood fire at night in the fire pit. The barbecue was in good working order and the kitchen had plenty of supplies for us. Owner was prompt to return my security deposit. Trully had a wonderful experience using the site and making the arrangements with the owner. Thank you again!

I enjoyed my stay in this lovely, secluded artist's cabin in the woods. I had breakfast every morning near the rolling stream that flows through the property, listened to birds and saw wildlife in the woods (i.e. deer, chipmunks). The cabin was cozy and had all amenities needed. The owners were very helpful. I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting peace, quiet and wanting to commune with nature.

The screened in porch is ideal for relaxing and communing with one another and nature. We enjoyed the seclusion of the property and the opportunity to view some wildlife right out the windows. The owners were very responsive and even lent us their membership pass for entry to the Opus 40. I will refer this cottage to family and friends.

We had a wonderful time in Woodstock. The one reason that we feel is most accountable for our good time was our accomodations. The cottage was wonderful. We spent as much time admiring the "Art Work" in the cottage as we did the surroundings of the property and other excursions. Whenever we return to Woodstock we will be sure to see if this cottage is still being rented.

We had a very romantic weekend at the cottage. Really enjoyed the private location and walking in the woods. Everything was very comfortable and we really enjoyed a big log fire each night. The art work in the cottage was lovely, so varied and interesting. Kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. Really enjoyed all the interesting sights in the village - spent way too much in all the stores! Would love to return for another weekend. Owners were very pleasant to work with - thanks!
