This five-acre lakerights property is a little bit of heaven. Located near Sullivan County’s York Lake, the house is hidden amongst the tall pines in the midst of everything we love about the Catskills.

The 1,400+ square foot home includes many of the same features we’ve found throughout Log Cabins Week, like vaulted ceilings. Lots of open space is another common aspect we’ve noted, almost as if those in the market for a log cabin might want the interior to feel as spacious as its setting. But of course!

Includes three bedrooms and a second floor loft (another common aspect of the log cabins we’ve seen this week) that overlooks the first floor. Kitchen/dining room/living room make up the open-concept first floor.

Luxuriate in nature from the shelter of the enclosed porch. Or, saunter across the street for a swim or paddle around the lake. Speaking of which, York Lake a 92 acre, non-motorized lake utilized by denizens of York Lake Estates, where this log cabin is situated. While the community lacks a club house and other private club amenities, who cares? There’s a whole lake to enjoy!

Barryville hamlet is a few miles south on the Delaware River and the NY/PA border. That means access to two state’s-worth of outdoor recreation from this property! Wondering how far away it is from true civilization? NYC is less than 2 hours away. You can get there from the Port Jervis train station about 20 minutes away.
