It can accommodate up to four guests with its queen-size Murphy bed and a queen-size air bed should extra guests wish to stay. Dogs will be wagging their tails when they find out they have lots of space to run around, play fetch, and chase their tails throughout the cabin and the surrounding woodland. The camping cabin features a kitchen area as well as a dining and living area where guests can cook a rustic country meal with the two-burner Coleman camping stove before relaxing in peace and quiet. Outside the pet-friendly cabin is a firepit for the real camping experience as well as garden furniture where guests can sit with a book while listening to the sounds of nature. Read More

This rental is solar-powered, and the water is provided from a nearby well, so glampers will truly have an eco-friendly stay. The Poetic Creek itself flows out of a reservoir serving the Town of Catskill, so the hosts know it's clean; however, no surface water is recommended for drinking.
The hosts restock amenities, including basics such as coffee, tea, sugar, cooking oil propane canisters for the Coleman camp stove, dish detergent, scrubbies, etc, so be sure to inform them if there is anything is running low. Guests should bring matches with them for lighting the fire and the cooking stove.
The owner replaces anything that doesn't work, but make sure you need it.

Please note that as of January 2018, extreme weather conditions have made the road icy. Therefore, the hosts have blocked the calendar until early February. 4WD is recommended when there is snow or ice on the road. Prior to the next guest's arrival, the host will send a caretaker to check the road to make sure the cabin is accessible.
The rates displayed are based on the rate for a one-night stay. Extra guests will be charged $10 per night, after two guests. Rates are discounted for more than two nights. Guests should send an inquiry to the hosts so they can let them know about the prices.
Guests should receive an email from the hosts with a map and instructions. If they don't get it within a couple hours after receiving a booking confirmation, please send a message to the hosts. It is essential to have the map, and the hosts insist that guests print it out before they leave their house. Some guests who did not, and only used their cell phone, had trouble seeing the map details and had difficulty finding the cabin. The hosts' map is detailed, accurate, and quite necessary; the cabin is at the end of a mile long driveway that has several forks before guests reach the cabin.
Some people get cell phone service at the cabin, but it does depend on the provider. The site's hosts have ATT, and it works for them.
It is important to note that during the dry season no combustibles should be near the fire pit when it is in use, and glampers should never leave a fire unattended.
Mice are a fact of life in the country. You may well see a mouse, or evidence of them. If that would bother you, we suggest you choose another retreat Read more
