Sure, it’s a cliche to say that “good things come in small packages,” but this dreamy Arkville cottage proves it to be true. 

Who needs a moving van? Not you, that’s who, because all of the cool midcentury furnishings you see inside this 1,000-square-foot hidden Catskills cabin comes with the purchase. So, pack a suitcase and your toothbrush, or keep it as a rental guesthouse that’s sure to please, sitting on nine acres of glorious Catskill Mountain land.

Just past the front door of this peachy-keen c.1966 Ranch is an entryway/mud room with coat closets and easy-to-clean tile flooring…

…followed by a spacious kitchen/dining area/laundry room.

Beyond the kitchen is the light-filled living room with a cozy wood stove, hardwood floors, and big double-hung windows. Get your Vitamin D without even having to step outside.

Two bedrooms are situated at the end of the cottage, along with a full bath…

Back to the front of the house, there’s a deck large enough for a table, chairs, and a lounge chair from which to take in the private, tree-and-mountain-encircled property.

With nine acres at your disposal, you could install a pool, expand the firepit, add another tiny (regular-sized) house for extra income or as a full-time residence, or just let it be what it is: A quiet, secluded property perfect as a getaway or guesthouse, situated just a few miles from charming Margaretville, NY, Belleayre Mountain for winter recreation, and Papaktan Mountain for hiking (you can access the trail behind the house). All that, and the furniture, too. Not too shabby!
