24 Catskills Cabin Rentals for Lovers of Nature & Good Design
Ah, the Catskill Mountains. It’s more than just a scenic retreat for city dwellers. Under New York state’s constitution, this 286,000-acre stretch of forested land is protected by what’s colloquially known as the “forever wild” law. This means it will be preserved and protected for, well, forever. Pretty epic, right?
Located just a couple of hours upstate of New York City opposite the Hudson Valley, the rolling Catskills landscape offers no shortage of awesome rental cabins—many of which are owned and operated by design-obsessed city dwellers, meaning you’ll feel right at home. Tucked away among the deciduous forests are AirBnb rentals a plenty-modern cabins, mid-century A-Frames, cozy cottages, rustic, log cabins, and some that can’t quite be described.
And if you’re the active type, everything from rock climbing and hiking to fly fishing and mountain biking are all easily within reach, whether you’re posted up in Phoenicia or channeling your inner artist near Woodstock in the Hudson Valley.
The cat might already be out of the bag, but there are lots of reasons to love visiting the Catskills (the legendary Phoenicia Diner is reason enough, tbh) and just to be sure, we picked out the twenty-five best Catskills vacation rentals so you barely have to think about it. Who knows? Maybe some of the Catskills’ forever wild-ness will rub off on you.
