This Ellenville-adjacent mountain cottage offers the chance to get away from it all without getting too far away from it all. 

Some of us really want to get out there and rough it far from civilization, while some of us, not so much. If you’re on the not-so-much side of things but still like a big ol’ dollop of nature surrounding to make you feel like you’ve truly escaped, take a quick tour of this compact, 600-square-foot cottage situated three miles from Ellenville village in Ulster County, NY.

Built around the turn-of-the-century, it used to be a one-room schoolhouse. Those old-school charms (see what we did there?) like hardwood floors and original wall siding come included with the two-bedroom interior, all kept cozy by a big wood stove.

Graduate past the campstove and do your cooking in an actual kitchen here, one that includes a cute vintage stove (functionality unknown) as well as a dishwasher and butcher-block counters.

The cottage’s full bath has been updated to include new fixtures and tiling…

…and, with a some touch ups here and there, this could be the most adorable two-bedroom cottage this side of the Shawangunk Ridge…which is very convenient from here, incidentially.
