Cabin Holiday Rental
The Owls Nest has a rich history as it is one of the few remaining structures which were originally known as summer kitchens. The original saltbox style farmhouse circa 1804 had, and still has, it's hearth in the basement...and just a few steps outside you would find the 'summer kitchen' where the canning and storage of food would be kept. Very much like a barn, but with brick walls to 'insulate' during the colder months and keep it cooler in the summer months, slowly these building were torn down as old farmhouses 'modernized'..fortunately this old farm remained in tact very much as it was and it's been our family's passion and project to fully restore since purchasing in 2012.

The property and other barns have been restored and are used for weddings seasonally. The Owls Nest was then conceived to be the private cabin for the couple to stay during the week of their wedding. Now we offer this fully converted, quaint and cozy cabin equipped with rustic and vintage period antiques in each room for other guests to enjoy during the off season. A clawfoot tub in the bathroom, cotton linen sheets and towels, light fare stocked in the vintage fridge for your arrival ensure a great start to your escape retreat. Bring a book and read by the Vermont Castings fireplace, bring your iPad and enjoy wifi, bring your hiking boots and go for a walk on our grounds and along the winding creek in the back yard. Enjoy coffee outside on the beautiful bluestone patio and garden. A short drive of 10 minutes will get you to the charming Hudson River waterfront town of Athens, 15 minutes to Catskill and 25 to Hudson's popular Warren Street filled with shops, galleries and eateries of all types. A walk on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge offers magnificent views of the Catskill Mountains and the historic Fredrick Church estate of Olana. Whether you are looking to stay in our have a local escape that is close to the goings on of the vibrant Hudson Valley weekend destination escapades, the Owls Nest is the perfect place to come, stay and play! We are woof friendly too;-) More
