Call us suckers for an autumn-hued mountain view, but we couldn’t resist this Slide Mountain Catskills vintage cabin situated at the base of the tallest peak in the Catskill Mountains. Needless to say, if you’re a lover of the outdoors in all seasons, this is the place to be. Not only do you have access to Slide Mountain’s hiking trails, winter mountain sports abound nearby at Belleayre, Hunter, and Windham mountains. Is joining the Catskill 3500 club on your to-do list? Make this your permanent base camp.
The 1960s single bed/single bath cottage sits on four acres of land flanked by the Big Indian Wilderness and the Slide Mountain Wilderness. These protected lands keep this cabin in near complete seclusion with the Esopus Creek as its nearest neighbor. Inside the 900 square foot interior are vaulted ceilings, a prominent brick fireplace, pine floors, and kitchen skylight. This is an outdoors-friendly house with an outside shower, firepit, built-in grill, covered front porch, and stone patio, so even if you don’t leave the property, you’re still communing with nature.
Vintage though it may be, the cabin includes some updates like new roof, copper gutters, and electrical system. What more could you ask for in a cozy Slide Mountain Catskills vintage cabin?
