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.

There's a reason this cabin on a cliff is booked solid through the Summer.

  • 5 of 5

It's absolutely perfect! Phil and Monique have thought through every last detail to make sure your visit is as perfect as can be. The cabin is both roomy and intimate. It is rustic charm, with all the modern amenities you'll want. You feel like you're miles away from it all, but still have easy access to last minute grocery runs. The Ashokan reservoir is a stones throw away, and you're surrounded by nearby hiking trails. I've spent a lot of time in Ulster County and the Hudson Valley. It's a beautiful part of NYS, and this cabin frames those views wonderfully from almost every room in the house. Take advantage of the property and all the moments Phil and Monique have created. Get lost soaking up the broad and expansive view from the wrap around deck. You'll not regret renting this cabin. I look forward to returning.

A perfect VRBO experience!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I could not have had a better stay at Cabin on a Cliff! The property itself is absolutely beautiful, quiet, and the perfect balance of nature and proximity to Woodstock/activities. The owners have obviously put an immense amount of thought into the cabin, and their effort is easily visible; the personal touches (bread, milk, hygiene products, etc.) were the best we've experienced on VRBO.

Honestly, nothing disappointed. Beautiful view and location, good internet and TV, well-equipped kitchen, comfy linens and bed, great owner communication, clean and extremely well-maintained. Phil and Monique have created a special experience here, and we cannot wait to return.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation since we had our baby last fall and was also my wife's birthday weekend. This place is amazing. From the moment we walked in the door everything was perfect. The cabin is immaculate and had everything we needed. We cooked dinner, enjoyed a fire in the fireplace, sat outside on the huge deck and stargazed. Phil and Monique even had birthday balloons scattered around when we arrived. We will definitely be back here in the future.

PERFECT PRIVATE Location to spend a relaxing time away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was perfect for what we were looking for in our getaway. Location was close to Woodstock and many amazing hiking trails. The cabin is very private, spotless, beautifully furnished and has EVERYTHING you will need and more for your time away from home. Phil and Monique were very quick to respond to any questions we had and even made sure they left balloons for us when they heard it was our anniversary. We have stayed at many VRBO places in the past and this is hands down our favorite to date. No question Phil and Monique will see us again when we return to the Catskills.

Our go to spot in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin on a Cliff is a pristine log cabin with incredible panoramic views from the deck. The location is excellent for traveling to nearby towns like Woodstock, Kingston & Saugerties.

Phil & Monique are terrific hosts. A pleasure to communicate with and the cabin was fully stocked for any of your travel needs. We are looking forward to our next adventure into the Catskills at the Cabin on a Cliff.

Location

Car: recommended

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 !
