About the property

Winston's Place is a cozy cabin nestled into a wooded backdrop, in the Catskill Mountains. Quiet dead end road, large wrap around deck, walking distance to the Esopus Creek. The cabin, built in 1970, is filled with vintage trinkets situated on a quiet, dead end road, with woods behind the house (as well as many large trees in front and sides to give privacy from neighbors). Perfect setting for an idyllic weekend or longer stay, year round. Outdoor local activities include hiking, fishing, swimming, tubing, skiing or snowboarding, exploring nearby towns, or you can lounge around the cabin or in the hammock, sun bathe on the deck, fire up the grill, eat smores around the fire pit or cuddle up indoors around the fireplace.

The Basics: Two bedrooms (one bedroom on main floor, upstairs loft bedroom plus a sofa bed in the living room), one and a half bath. Wood burning fireplace. Wrap around deck. Propane grill and fire pit. Hammock. Board Games (and outdoor games). Apple TV. Dishwasher. Wireless Internet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alison and her family were the perfect guests! Alison was very friendly and easy to communicate with and she left the cabin in immaculate condition. They are welcome back anytime! :)

Relaxing cabin get away.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is easy to get to, yet you feel like your miles in the hills. All the comforts we needed to relax a whole day away. The lovely wrapped porch is a perfect location for reading, visiting or eating -both morning & night. You can slip into the early morning quiet or let the evening wrap around you. Though tucked away on the side of the hills, a short drive got us onto the main roads for day trips to several Hudson River towns, to Woodstock or to Hyde - it was easy access to the Historic towns north & south on the Hudson. Nickie's cabin was an excellent vacation home-base and it was very easy to work with her on any questions we had as we planned our week. Just perfect.

The best stocked cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Nickie, we were able to check in an hour early on the day of arrival. We found the cabin very private, quiet and comfortable.

Despite the remoteness of the the cabin, it's about 5 minutes from the grocery store, gas station, etc.

The cabin was extremely well stocked with all the essentials including plenty of towels, soap, shampoo, kitchen supplies, cooking utensils, propane grill with spare tank, cleaning supplies, etc., etc.

During our stay, there wasn't any need to run out to get something we forgot to bring; making our time more enjoyable.

My friend kept commenting how nice the cabin and layout were and kept calling it "my perfect dream house".

We were about 12 minutes away from Tremper Mountain, where we hiked to the top and up the fire tower. There was an amazing 360 view of the mountains. We also took advantage of the many other hiking trails near by.

The cabin is a few minutes away from a Brewery and about 20 minutes away from Woodstock where we spent an afternoon.

Overall, we had a great time. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Thanks again Nickie!

Cozy, Woodsy Cabin on The Hill

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at the cabin. Modern kitchen, heating and ammenities made for a more comfortable stay. The bedrooms are charming and the beds are so comfy. Nearby railroad trail to hike along Esopus Creek and climbing the hill through the woods kept kids active when they weren't playing games or watching 'Stranger Things". Plenty of local food and fare nearby in Phoenicia and Woodstock. Would definitely go back.

Cozy homey cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing weekend stay here with my fiance. Very clean cabin, great decor, plenty of space, and most importantly very quiet location! Highly recommend if you need to get out of the city and press the reset button.

great location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin, the accommodations, the location, and everything that came with it was exactly as advertised and expected. We were extremely pleased with our decision to rent here and stay for a couple of days, and will no doubt rent again in the future. Thank you so much

The cabin was clean and just what I was looking for to celebrate my birthday. Nickie has to be the best host, beyond accommodating. I cannot reccomend her and this cabin enough.

The Esopus Creek is just at the bottom of the road (easiest access is at the bottom of Cold Brook Rd), known for trout fishing, you can pick up a fishing license at the Olive Country Store on Rte 28. The high school in Boiceville has a tennis court that is open to the public (5 min drive) and we have a couple of tennis rackets and balls at the cabin), the township of Olive has a public swimming pool and public library (15 min drive), the Emerson Resort has spa treatments and the world's largest kaleidoscope (15 min drive), there is a scenic old school train ride (15 mins away), the Ashokan Reservoir (20 mins away) is a lovely 5 mile walk and great place to see bald eagles, Belleayare beach (25 mins away ) is a public lake where you can swim, paddle boat, kayak or fish). There are also lots of fun things to do in the towns of Phoenicia and Woodstock (15-20 mins away).

As far as food goes, Boiceville Inn is the closest restaurant (5 mins away). They have a little bit of everything - sandwiches/pasta/pizza/bar food. Nothing fancy, just a family run place that we love. Everyone in there is super nice, it is kind of our Cheers - the bartender, Nancy, is a neighbor. Right next door is Bread Alone bakery/coffee shop. For restaurants that are a little more upscale, Peekamoose is always a crowd pleaser, about 40 mins away, but worth it, farm to table American food, they have a fire pit that you can hang around after dinner and roast marshmallows and they have a room full of toys for kids. Cucina is great Italian in Woodstock. 2 other places we like near there that do kind of American fusion are New World and Red Onion. For breakfast or lunch, Phoenicia Diner is awesome, just be prepared to wait, totally worth it. :)


IGA (The Boiceville Market), a liquor store and pharmacy are in a little shopping complex less than 5 mins away (on Rte 28). There is a post office one complex over.


My favorite is the Overlook Mountain hike, about 30 mins from the cabin. It is pretty easy, a steady incline, wide trail and amazing view at the top.

We would love for our cabin to be treated with respect and responsibility. We've worked hard to create a warm and tranquil place for us and our guests & would like to continue enjoying these things after your stay!

We live in a quiet neighborhood so parties and being loud at late hours are a no. We want our neighbors to support Homeaway and see the benefit of it so we ask that you be respectful to them as well. To respect the neighbors, no outside festivities past 12am on weekend nights and 11pm on weeknights (please take the fun inside).

Check in is anytime between 4pm and Midnight. Check out is 12pm. Please contact me directly if you require more flexible times, I will accommodate you if possible.

Important things to note about the property:

We are on well water, so pressure can get low if there is excessive use. For 3 or more people, please space out showers.

Please do not flush ANYTHING other than toilet paper. The plumbing and septic tank are not made for anything other paper waste.

You must take your trash with you when you leave. There is NO TRASH PICKUP FOR THIS HOUSE... Trash bags are in the cupboard next to the oven. Recycling can be left in paper bags.
