About Phil and Monique
We have traveled all over and been to a lot of great places and met some great people. We decided that we would build a unique house on an unusual setting,close to everything ,but secluded on it's own piece of land. It would have to have an over the top view, affordable stay and comfortable. Every piece of the puzzle would have to be hand made and would take years to complete. A spacious layout with beautiful furnishings so from the moment you walk in you smile and feel like your home.Quiet , clean and lasting memories. It would also have romance ,charm and a touch of magic ! The cabin is 10 minutes from Kingston and 5 minutes to Woodstock......Perfect location and plenty of restraurants, grocery, wine. shops and anything you may need, on the way with town traffic, just peace and quiet ! Such good fun, Monique and Phil
Phil and Monique purchased this Cabin in 2012

Spalted maple kitchen, bluestone everywhere. Every thing hand carved and hand peeled.State of the art build, Very comfortable and quiet, but 5 miles from reality.We haveI high speed internet, cable tv and washer and dryer.Great central air and heat .This home was a 3 year build with attention to detail and warmth.Direct south facing..

Wish we could rate higher than 5 stars!
We now understand how Monique and Phil receive consistent 5 stars! The cabin was very clean, very private, and everything we could have asked for! The view from the deck was breathtaking and it made seeing the stars at night perfect. The fireplace was so relaxing and hiking along the property gave us the tranquility we were looking for. We WILL be back!
Perfect weekend escape
My husband, 7-month old daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at Phil and Monique's Cabin on a Cliff. We got almost a foot of snow during our trip and Phil was incredible in plowing the driveway, snow blowing the deck and shoveling the walk way. Truly incredible service! The snow kept us on the property for most of the weekend, and we enjoyed a couple of lovely walks in the woods and a lot of relaxing time in the cabin. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make several delicious meals at home as well. We would highly recommend the cabin for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in the Woodstock area!
Wonderful winter holiday!
Our stay at the cabin on the cliff was a delight. We booked the property for a week away from the city with our two pups, with the plan to work remotely and enjoy some quiet evenings and beautiful views. We weren't disappointed. The cabin is lovely. Phil and Monique have taken tremendous care in outfitting the cabin with all you could need. A kitchen with all the gear required, plus a few essentials like coffee, cooking oils and fresh local milk in the fridge. Fresh flowers greeted us, as did cozy linens and well stocked toiletries. The view was serene and, with not another house in sight in the valley, we very much got the "cabin in the woods" feel we were looking for while also being conveniently close to the local road. When we did opt to venture out, we were only a short distance from Woodstock and Kingstone, giving us great dining options (Silvia's was definitely our fav!) and grocers. Phil kept the wood pile well stocked and we took full advantage, spending most evenings by the fire playing board games. Last but not least, the ability to bring our dogs was key for us on this trip and the pups really enjoyed romps in the yard and snoozing by the fire. Thanks so much, Phil and Monique, for trusting to enjoy your property as responsible pet owners. We really loved our time!
The Perfect Cabin in the Catskills
This has been, by far, our favorite VRBO experience. The cabin is beautiful, warm, and wonderful, and Phil and Monique have been fantastic hosts. To put icing on the cake, we woke up on our final day to a blanket of snow. The entire place was a winter wonderland. Thank you, Phil and Monique. We will return!
Gorgeous cabin on endless acres
A beautiful cabin in the middle of the woods. We loved our stay. Phil and Monique's home is a perfect getaway. The cabin is quiet, and the fireplace is amazing. It's incredibly clean. We stayed over Christmas, and Phil and Monique put up a pre-lit Christmas tree for us. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook multiple meals. The views are unparalleled. We took hikes on the property, went and explored nearby Woodstock on Christmas Eve, which was a lovely little town. We highly recommend and hope to return! Thank you, Phil and Monique for making our Christmas holiday special!
A Perfect, Relaxing Weekend
My husband and I stayed at Cabin on a Cliff with our dog this December and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. Phil and Monique's beautiful cabin had every amenity you could possibly need and MORE! This cabin is truly a sanctuary. The perfect way to relax and unwind by a cozy fire. We ventured to downtown Woodstock (about 15-20min from the Cabin) it was the most quaint little town with plentiful shops and restaurants. We cannot recommend Cabin on a Cliff enough. We cannot wait for another weekend we are off to get back there! Enjoy!
