Neighborhood

We love Smallwood - a friendly and quiet lake community with many cute little log cabins from the 1930s and 40s. We have a lake, waterfall, forest reserve with hiking trails, post office, and restaurant within walking distance from the cabin. To walk around the lake takes about 40 minutes.

This area of the Catskills offers every outdoor activity imaginable including swimming, hiking, canoeing, boating, tubing, rafting, fishing, cycling, ziplining, horseback riding, bird watching, apple picking, snowtubing and skiing/snowboarding.

The cabin is only a short drive from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the Museum at Bethel Woods/the original Woodstock site, buzzy design haven Livingston Manor, Resorts World Catskills, Legoland, Lake Superior State Park, the Catskills Craft Beverage Trail, great restaurants, cute shops and antique stores, harvest festivals, holiday markets and activities, farms (kids usually love the alpacas!) and farmers markets, New York State's largest indoor waterpark Kartrite, Forestburgh Playhouse, Kadampa Meditation Center New York, Monticello Casino and Raceway, Monticello Motor Club Off-Road Adventure, as well as picturesque river towns Narrowsburg and Callicoon.

You can check in and out by yourself with our keyless entry. You will be issued an access code for the duration of your stay - no keys to lose or return!

PRIVACY
Please note that a few of our friendly neighbors’ houses are visible from the front of the cabin. The house is at the end of the block and faces a forest on two sides and landscaped yard on the third side providing a sense of privacy.

HOT TUB
We have a brand new hot tub in our side yard with a beautiful view of the woods and (seasonally) mountains. Please note that there is currently no privacy fence and the hot tub is visible from our neighbor’s house. Children under 12 years are not permitted to use the hot tub.

KITCHEN
The kitchen, which features a brand new gas stove, dishwasher and refrigerator, is stocked with everything you need to make a meal. We have a coffee maker, bean grinder, microwave, toaster, blender, and food processor. We offer our guests coffee, tea, olive oil, and basic spices. The dining table seats 6 people in total, 4 comfortably.

LIVING ROOM
The living room features a smart TV, electric fireplace, a record player and the comfy furniture is perfect for relaxing in after a long hike or cozy movie night. The smart TV is logged in to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video but you can of course log in to your own streaming service as well. If you want to play content from another device we have an HDMI cable.

BEDROOMS
The primary bedroom is a large lofted room on the second floor with open stairs (no door, but very private) featuring a queen bed with Allswell's highly rated hybrid mattress. The cozy secondary bedroom suite with adjoining 'office den' has a double bed with a firm mattress. This suite has a sliding / barn door. Both bedrooms have electric fireplaces.

BATHROOM
The country-designed bathroom has a bathtub/shower and a window that faces the forest in the backyard.

WORKSPACES
The downstairs bedroom has a dedicated den space with a desk and monitor to connect your laptop to via HDMI. There is another workspace in the upstairs bedroom. The wifi is fast and reliable (230+ mbps).

WI-FI AND CELL SERVICE
Wi-Fi is fast (230+ mbps) and reliable, and cell service is great - Verizon and AT&T have excellent coverage. We do not know if other networks/operators have the same great service, but if not, we suggest activating wi-fi calling on your phone.

FRONT PORCH
The front porch has two Adirondack chairs and adjoins a landscaped area with a picnic table and a gas BBQ. This is the perfect spot to enjoy your meals, sip your coffee or cocktail, read a book, relax, work on your laptop, or listen to the chorus of birds that reside in the area. There is a fire pit in the side yard overlooking the forest with Adirondack chairs.

WASHER/DRYER
We have a compact combo washer and dryer in the kitchen.

WATER
The well water is safe to drink and tastes great.

PEDAL BOAT & STAND-UP PADDLE BOARDS (SUPS)
The stay includes complimentary use of a pedal boat for use on Smallwood's own Mountain Lake, as well as two inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUPs) with access to several nearby lakes and reservoirs. Life jackets are provided.

PET POLICY
We allow two small to medium-size well-behaved and housebroken pets (up to 55 lbs/pet) per stay. If pets are left unattended at the cabin they must be in a crate or pet carrier. We ask that you encourage your pets to stay off the furniture and they must be on leash when outside. We provide a dog bed, as well as water and food bowls for your convenience.

AIR-CONDITIONING
The cabin is the perfect place to be if you want to escape the city heat! We have the smart AC Midea (highly rated, quiet and efficient) installed in both bedrooms. The living room and upstairs bedroom both have ceiling fans, and there is also a portable fan. We do not have an AC in the living/dining area but these rooms stay fairly cool, and windows and doors can be opened for natural cross ventilation. Note that the ceiling fans are somewhat low and people over 6 foot tall may find them uncomfortable to use (I am 6 feet tall and run the fans often and personally have no issues).

GUIDE
We share a digital guide with our guests featuring our recommendations on things to do, sights to see, places to eat, and what not to miss.

Find us at IG @mountainlakebungalows, which also features our other cabin in Smallwood!

Transit

The easiest way to reach @mountainlakebungalows is by car, but it is possible to go via public transit from the NYC area as well. Take the Short Line Bus from Port Authority in Manhattan to Monticello's Short Line Terminal. From there, you'd have to take a taxi to the bungalow (under 15-minute drive).
