A stylish cabin in an idyllic, creekside setting on a picture-perfect, town-maintained, dead-end road, a stone’s throw from Lower Birch Creek Forest Reserve, complete with spring-fed pond for swimming and fishing and access to hiking trails. Originally a schoolhouse, this Scandinavian-inspired, fully off-grid retreat has been operating as a successful short-term rental since 2021. Completely rebuilt in 2020, with a new septic and well, and set on 0.5 acres, this 620 sq ft “tiny home” is the perfect Catskills escape. The bright, open concept living area features a large wood-burning stove. Solid oak floors, a vaulted ceiling and oversized windows in the living room create a sense of light and space. The property also features a spacious bathroom with a fully tiled shower and a sleeping loft with a queen bed, accessed by a custom ship ladder. The bespoke cabinets and shelves in the full kitchen were handcrafted from wood on the property. Outside, on the beautiful, private cedar deck, you can enjoy an alfresco meal, or simply unwind and take in the sights and sounds of nature from the creek and surrounding forest. The cedar-clad wood-burning sauna and outdoor shower offer the perfect way to relax and rejuvenate. There is also a fire pit, which provides the perfect spot to socialize outdoors on cooler days and evenings. Solar panels provide the power which is stored in state-of-the-art lithium batteries. Propane fuels the heating, stove and hot water. There is also a whole house EcoGen Generac back-up generator, which will top up the batteries should the energy reserves run low. Only two hours from the city, minutes from Belleayre ski center and beach, a short drive to Pine Hill’s vibrant community center, tennis court and library and within easy reach of the thriving destination villages of Phoenicia and Margaretville with their markets, shopping, restaurants, cafés and wine bars. This unique property has everything for the perfect upstate getaway, or income generating opportunity.
