This Week on Upstater: It’s Cabins & Cottages Week!

178 Route 26, Coxsackie: $185,000

‘Tis the season, Upstaters! The season for cabins and cottages—all-season, three-season, seasonal, small and fancy, small and rustic, in the woods, in the field, on the mountain, by the lake. You name it, we got it. This week on Upstater, if it looks like a cottage, quacks like a cabin, and is currently listed on the market in the Hudson Valley or the Catskills, we’ll find it on our hunt through the real estate listings.

107 E. Kenoza Place, Smallwood, Sullivan Co.: $94,500

One destination we will be visiting during Cabins & Cottages Week is Sullivan County in the western Catskill Mountains. There, we’ll find lots of lakeside communities populated with bungalows and vacation cottages, often seasonal and listed for under $100,000. Keep in mind that these lakeside bungalows are often simple, unadorned, and intended for good weather and spending time outdoors, hence the relatively inexpensive listing prices. For some good info on lake communities and homes in Sullivan County, go here.

Don’t worry, perma-vacationers (or, at least those who like to feel like they’re on vacation year-round): Four-season cottages, cabins, and bungalows are also on tap for this week. Stay tuned…
