It is warm in the winter and cool in the summer—with a heater, wood stove, deck, mountain views, star-gazing patio, gas grill, kitchen, sofa bed and fire ring. It is off-grid, with a compost toilet. It sits on 20 acres, two hours north of NYC. You can get to a hiking trail, Woodstock, Kingston, Saugerties or the Hudson River in 15 min. As seen in Dwell, CNN and Time Out!

"One of the best Airbnb cabins we’ve rounded up from all across the U.S. " - Architectural Digest, 2022

Staying in our 4-season 20-foot shipping container is not like living in a house or a hotel room or a glamping tent. It is like living in the wild, except you are encased in high-efficiency insulated walls with giant low-energy windows—and sleeping on a comfortable queen-size (Ikea Friheten) sofa bed with EVERGREEN STITCHES organic percale linens. You can watch shooting stars from the bed. You will likely see a family of deer wandering through the woods while you make coffee. If it's cold outside (with the direct vent propane heater and wood stove it's always warm inside) we usually leave the bed out, use the wood-fired sauna and lounge around drinking coffee. (You can book multiple 90-minute private sessions.) If it's warm, we leave the double doors open and lounge around the patio. (Lots of lounging...)

In the summer, there is a clawfoot tub on the deck with hot and cold water for outdoor/off-grid soaking and showering. In the winter, we bathe in our new Finnish wet sauna, also with a shower. (You can book multiple 90-minute private sessions.) We have a full size sink in the cabin, with a foot pump and faucet for water. There is a propane stove and enough pots/pans/basics to cook whatever you want. There is no refrigerator; there is a cooler for your ice and perishables. (Yes, we have a coffee grinder.) The direct vent propane heater is easy to use and super warm. The wood stove stays warm all night too. In the summer, a breeze off the 3,100-foot mountain behind us keeps the container cool, and fire flies and crickets in the field will lull you to sleep.

Staying in the cabin is an experience, not a simple overnight. There is something very special about it and this property. On a 20-degree night in the middle of a blizzard, it is 80 degrees and silent inside. Seven guests have gotten engaged here. (All said "yes!") Another guest chopped his bundle of wood into 1,000 toothpick-sized pieces thinking that the fire would burn longer and hotter that way. (It does not.)

There are streams and cliffs and tons of wildlife on the property. Owls and red-shouldered hawks soar above the forest cabin, as well as fireflies in the summer. This place was built for two. Or two and an infant. Larger groups can inquire about our other cabins. (See our profile to see them all.)

The cabin site is on a truly gorgeous 20-acre plot on the eastern edge of the Catskill Mountains. Our backyard is the flank of 3,100-foot Overlook Mountain. It feels a bit like Maine, or Alaska. You can't see any neighbors from our property, but there are neighbors, great ones. (Please be courteous and respectful to them.)

All guests are left with potable drinking water. There are touch-activated LED lights in the house and a Jackery portable battery for charging via USB or household 110 volt. The compost toilet is set in a small outbuilding surrounded by trees, thirty feet from the cabin. There is not a lot of storage space in the container, so we suggest packing light and leaving the bulk of our stuff in the car. Parking is 10 feet away. Just bring in the essentials, keep the place orderly and it's more comfortable. No smoking inside, plenty of room to smoke around the campfire outside...

Cell service is good across the property, but the steel walls of the container make it not so good in some spots indoors. (Put your phone by the window.) The other cabins on the property are a good ways away. Each has its own driveway and plenty of private space to walk around. (We designed it that way.)

Saugerties is a gem. Miss Lucy's (dinner), The Dutch (drinks), Circle W General Store (breakfast/lunch) Love Bites (breakfast) and Silvia or Red Onion (fancy!). Walking to the lighthouse is a must, as is hiking to Kaaterskill Falls, Huckleberry Point and North and South Lakes. Hunter Mountain is also 30 minutes away. Food shopping and farm stands are 10-15 min away.
