Amazing spot! Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back. I love the location the most, felt like you had the whole woods to yourself, so relaxing. And the host was very responsive. Also loved how dog friendly it was while at the same time being super clean!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GEM! I stayed here with two close friends to spend the weekend outside of the city. The house had everything we needed to cook, sleep, and relax and we spent the majority of our time outdoors in the hot tub, playing badminton, and enjoying out little piece of woods. We also had a wonderful time exploring Wurtsboro and nearby towns including the nearby farmers market in Ellenville, Westwind Orchard for cider and pizza, and Arrowood Farm Brewery in Accord. I would love to come back to do more exploring and hiking in the area, and Wurtsboro Ridge Retreat is the perfect hoping off point to do so.

The cabin was fantastic! Everything you could ever need was in there. The hot tub was great as well! Showers were super hot when spaced out and the outdoor shower was super nice! Definitely recommend staying here and wish we had an extra day!

We had a wonderful short stay here. The cabin is in a glorious peaceful woodland setting with a stream and beautiful trees. We enjoyed all the places to sit out including the hammock, fire pit and dining areas. The hot tub was great and we even had deer walk into the garden. The cabin was cosy and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a break. Gerard has thought of everything. We can't wait to visit again.

It was a nice cabin. Beautiful scenery with a lot of amenities. Besides the host not answering his phone at all when I needed help with power outage. Power was out for the whole day mind you. You’re in the woods alone with no signal or other cabins nearby. Everything else was fine.

Im sorry that you felt that way. You Arrived at the end of a NorthEast Hurricane that went through New Jersy and New York. I have a Binder on the kitchen table with Instructions and it states that during severe weather the Power can go out for a few hours but will go back on. I wastnt able to reach you that day because unfortunately i had to undergo surgery and was incapacitated. I was able to get back to you the following day to explain and even offered you to stay the entire day you were suppose to leave. Ok I hope you had a nice time the rest of your stay.

Gerard is a great host. The cabin was super clean and tidy. Great book of instructions and area guidance left on the table for us to read and use. Our dogs had a wonderful time in the yard. Overall, a wonderful stay and we would certainly go back

We had an absolutely delightful weekend stay at the Wurtsboro Ridge Retreat. It's peaceful and secluded, but close to several charming small towns for anything you may need (grocery stores, gas, restaurants, etc). The cabin was clean and fully equipped with all the essentials (kitchen supplies, bathroom items, linens, towels, and paper products). The outdoor space has everything you'd need and want, too. We loved the hot tub and grilling station, complete with all the utensils and plenty of propane. All in all, it was a wonderful stay. I highly recommend to anyone interested in a woodsy retreat!
