Bedrooms 4
Space 2,500 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8, ideally, 6 adults, 2 children)

Located on 12 private acres, in a quiet, rural neighborhood in Catskill, NY, where the Catskill Mountains meet the Hudson River, our authentic yet modern log home is the ideal choice for your next country getaway. 25 Minutes to Hunter and Windham Mountains, the towns of Hudson, Woodstock, Saugerties, and, of course, downtown Catskill (one of the area’s best-kept secrets).

The house is a blend of contemporary and rustic design featuring a large great room with two massive skylights and a 21-foot ceiling, modern kitchen, wood-burning fireplace with stone hearth, master suite with private balcony, large deck for cookouts and a tranquil covered front porch to take in the sounds of abundant nature in any weather.

The historic Kaaterskill Creek runs through the property, and you can paddle and/or fish this wide and winding tributary to the Hudson in our 16' canoe.

About Jim Malone

I design and build Green furniture, primarily from reclaimed bowling lane wood. I bought this property (at the time, 12 wooded acres) in 2004 and over the following 3 years built the 4 bedroom log home that you've been reading about. The house and property are cherished by me and my family when we're not renting it, and we love hearing how much our guests have enjoyed their time at Little Big North.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is great! Our first ever stay in a real log cabin. Quite a rustic charm. The view is beautiful. Our 2 families bonded over the cozy fire. Also close to Windham! Thank you for a beautiful weekend.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Six adults stayed at Little Big North for just a weekend, but we had a terrific time! The cabin was very nice and looked just as the pictures showed. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay, other than groceries. The fireplace was nice for those of us who don't have one in the city! Would love to rent here again when the weather is warmer. Thank you Jim for sharing your cabin with us!

Beautiful and Clean Home near Hunter Mountain

  • 5 of 5

The house was one of the cleanest and well kept properties I've ever stayed at. We had no complaints. The home design was beautiful and there were photos showing just how much work had went into the construction and layout. The furnishings were nice and we were excited to find some posters in the kids room of an obscure 90s cartoon. Our only note is to be wary of the driveway down to the property if you do not have 4 wheel drive. It is very steep and ices quickly because of the location. During our stay, the owner responded quickly to all questions and sent a plow. We'd stay here again and I'd recommend it to others.

Charming Oasis in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious log cabin tucked away and off the beaten path. The house is gorgeous and filled with beautiful hand crafted tables that you will wish were in your home. The house has everything you need and is loaded with some great extra touches. The patio off the back is a peaceful and scenic place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or your morning coffee. The house has so much land and although we didn't make it down to the water, there are canoes! This is a great house for a girls weekend or a family get a way. Quick drive to downtown Catskills. We loved that there were little signs around the home to offer tips about the house and make us mindful of things to know. The house was clean and offered plenty of different sleeping options. The master bedroom upstairs is a selling feature of the house and has a small private balcony off the bedroom. If my travels take me to area again, I will definitely stay here. Jim offered spot on tips for the best coffee in Catskills (HiLo) and great shopping in the area. He was quick to respond with answers to our questions prior to arrival. We really enjoyed this beautiful log cabin tucked away in the Catskills.

Peaceful, beautiful setting, wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here with family for a tiny reunion. It was super safe and thoughtfully appointed for us 6 adults as well as my 14 month old- clean pack n play and high chair at the ready, an assortment of kids books she loved. An incredible deck in a grove of trees, we had wonderful meals and lounged happily in the great room. Nearby catskill was a great trip to a riverside playground and park that all enjoyed. Jim the owner was very easy to work with, and his rental instructions were simple to follow. We would definitely rent again in the future.

Great family lodge near Hudson

  • 4 of 5

Great family lodge within a 20 minute drive to Hudson, NY. We had two babies with us and appreciated the two folding cribs that were available. The property is very pretty and well kept. Jim was responsive and helpful with the booking.

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in 4 or 5 houses in the Catskill area, and all 6 of us thought this was the best yet. Jim, the owner, was good about replying right away to our emails. The house is fascinating - well designed and constructed. It is open and airy and things flow well. Radiant heating in the floor made it comfy under foot. Beds are very comfortable. We loved the long, beautiful table, and the fireplace worked REALLY well. We appreciated the supply of firewood on the porch. All in all, it was delightful, and we hope to return there next year.
