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

Why Phil and Monique chose West Hurley

This house is hand built from craftsman of a different era. Every piece of wood of wood is from the catskills. Hand pegged oak floors Massive 200lb hand carved front door. 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.. To access the 8,000 acre Ashokan Reservoir which is a mile away,Google : watershed recreation access permit . It takes a minute to fill out and print a permit and it's free and good for 5 years

What makes this cabin unique

South facing 70'long deck has best views and privacy .We get a lot of question as to the $1000 security deposit.This house is hand built with great craftsmanship.We worked out a user friendly security deposit with VRBO.All the money is handled by VRBO.Your reservation is completed in two payments.The second payment includes the security deposit. and is not due till 2 weeks before your arrival.If you cancel your stay prior to your arrival the security deposit is refunded within 24hrs.After you departure we check the property that day,if all is well the security is refunded within 24 hrs via VRBO.A email confirming this is sent to you direct from VRBO.This seems to work the best for everybody and we have never had a claim. As questions arise about the new NYS law regarding airb&b's. Cabin On A Cliff has always been owned and operated by the same family. It's registered as a hotel and always has been. Thanks, Phil and Monique

Beautiful Cabin, Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

The house & property were immaculately maintained - and absolutely perfect for our trip. It had plenty of rustic charm with all the modern amenities you could want. You feel like you're the only people on earth when you stand on the back deck, overlooking the forest without another house in sight. I couldn't recommend it more.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary. Phil and Monique left a surprise cake for us in the refrigerator and fresh flowers in almost every room. They provide everything you can need. The place is very clean. We had absolutely nothing to complain about. They even made special accommodations for us! We felt so comfortable. It’s a home away from home. We definitely are planning to go back!

Amazing views and so well stocked!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have wished for a better stay. The cabin is beautiful with sweeping views as far as you can see. Every detail was attended to from the kitchen to the bathroom. Phil and Monique have every thing covered and were so helpful with all our questions. It's conveniently located to several ski locations. We are looking forward to visiting again.

VERY GOOD DIRECTIONS AS GOOGLE ARE NAVIGATION ARE NOT. Take the NYS Thruway, also known as Interstate 87 to Exit 19(Kingston Exit). Once through the toll booth , bear right onto Route 28 WEST. This Road is 45 MPH and well patrolled! Follow Route 28 WEST for exactly 5 miles till you come to a traffic light. (Stewarts Gas Station will be on your right)Make a left onto Basin RD, Go 75FT and make another left onto Basin RD.Continue on 7/10ths of a mile and make your first right onto Dike RD(not marked). Travel Dike Rd (breath taking view)8/10ths of a mile to a stop sign. Make a right onto Route 28A. Travel Rt. 28A ,7/10ths of a mile and turn left onto Stone Road. Go down Stone RD. 1/2 a mile to #125 on your left. Go down the driveway and bear right continue on to the Cabin. Your Home !
