White Sulfur Springs Artist retreat is 90 minutes northwest of New York City in the beautiful Catskill Mountain Region of Upstate New York. The retreat is within a 10 minute drive to the incredible Peekamoose hiking trails and waterfalls as well as the Neversink Reservoir swimming area.

Unlike more densely settled, gentrified areas outside the city, such as the Hudson River Valley or the Hamptons, this corner of Sullivan County feels lost in time, a cluster of tiny hamlets (like Rosco, world famous for its fly fishing) that follow the twists and turns of the Delaware River.
On the western edge of Sullivan County is the town of Jeffersonville, a place where you can find antiques and all sorts of oddities that feel like treasures lost in time. The towns of Livingston Manor and Callicoon, each less than 20 miles from one another, are attracting artists and entrepreneurs who are transforming these sleepy towns.
During the winter the Catskill Mountains are transformed into a winter oasis where snow skiing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling take center stage.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Thank you so much! We have a great experience! The location is the best! You can find yourself closed to Bethel Woods and Woodstock Stage Area. Amazing!
Afsana is a great hostess and her place is adorable with great vibes!
Highly recommend it!
I'd like to begin by saying that this was my first time GLAMing as I've only been regular camping before.
Asfana and Todd were very polite and welcoming. They never came off as rude or cold. However, there seemed to be a lack of communication between the two of them. Afsana told us one thing and then when we arrived Todd welcomed us and told us different things. Todd told us we could use the portable potty and said we would have to talk to Afsana about showers? Todd said that maybe she was using old information on her website? I would say update the website then lol. Asfana had said there was a washing station for dishes and a bathroom with a shower. It wasn't until the second day that she confirmed everything she said. No one had signal for miles so we couldn't call her the first day and since Todd said he also owned the place we figured we listened to him on the first day. Be mindful that you will share the bathroom with other people staying in the cabins which we didn't feel comfortable doing because of covid(that was our own decision). There was a hose with freshwater and we just used that to shower.
The campsite is on a very steep hill and you cannot park/drive your car on it. If you have kids or even elders this hill is scary to climb down. It didn't rain while we stayed so we were fine and we were also a group of young adults. Everything is at the bottom of the campsite right next to the cabins which none of us expected. Be mindful that you need a lot of strength to get all your stuff at the top of the campsite.
The campsite was isolated so we did have our own space which was nice. We could see the other people staying in the cabins and hear the neighbors kids during the day. The spot where they allowed us to pitch our tent was kind of on a slant and we would wake up on the other side of the tent in the middle of the night.
Behind your tent is large land of woods. You can hear all the animals during the night and actually see the stars. Sometimes you can see wildlife during the day like toads! There are a lot of long legged spiders and mosquitoes. We felt very close with nature.
Maybe people have a different experience in the cabins because they don't seem so bad but for the price of what we paid it definitely was expensive for what we had access to and how everything was placed. Maybe this just wasn't for us. Again the hosts were respectful but this location was definitely meant for a different group of people compared to regular camping.
Lovely hilltop campsite
We had a lovely time camping on Afsana's land. We set up on the hilltop which gave us a great woods experience. We had fun exploring the dining area, and all the details around the retreat. It was fantastic to have a composting toilet as well. Everything is very well labeled so you know how to use stuff, where to set your stuff up and where to park. We were the only ones on the land but it would also be fun to go with a larger group as there is a cabin and a few spots to set up a campsite. If you camp on the hilltop you can see the stars through the clearing in the trees which was lovely. Also plenty of places to set up hammocks. The hilltop gets more sunlight which is beautiful to wake up to the dappled light of the woods.
Also there is a great breakfast place in Livingston Manor just about 15 minutes away as well as a general store with local grocery.
We enjoyed our stay. Thanks Afsana!
Afsana's property is strange and wonderful! Full of found objects, art, unusual structures... We camped at the top of a small hill, surrounded by trees, overlooking several cabins (only one occupied), the outdoor kitchen area, and the outhouse. We were able to stay distanced and safe from others by not sharing the outdoor kitchen down the hill.
At the site there was a firepit with a grill, a treestump, and a couple low plastic chairs -- that was all we needed as we brought our own supplies. There is no platform/tent as shown in the pictures, but that was fine by us. The property itself is not huge but there are hiking trails a short drive away.
We didn't meet Afsana but she was available by phone and text whenever we needed, and seemed very nice!
June 2020 (site 1)
Pine Forrest was awesome! We stayed at Site 1, which was situated on the hill just above the cabins, bathroom (compost toilet, indoor shower w/ hot water), kitchen, and the tree house - all within a few minutes walk down the hill. Todd & Wassim showed us around and we were able to drive up & unpack, but then parked at the bottom of the hill - had to go back and forth a bit to get stuff from the car, but was totally fine.
The fire pit has a really cool grate to cover the sides & a top to keep embers from flying around (along with a grate to cook on top of). Chairs, cooler, and a little table were provided & plenty of firewood to forage in the woods right behind the campsite. Bring bug spray though! Lots of mosquitos :)
Fun, funky artist’s retreat
Fun, funky artist’s retreat on a beautiful property. Afsana & Todd were just delightful hosts and they have really created a cool little space. I do think the listings are a little confusing. We booked both campsites they have listed, although I am not sure if we used both or if we all posted up in one & im not sure where the second would have been. There is also a charming cabin on the property that is for rent, as well. There is a covered cooking & picnic area that I think is mostly designated for the cabin, but campers also can have use of. It is also important to note that there is one shared bathroom for both campsites, the cabin & the hosts, which in our first COVID era venture out of the house took a little adjustment.
Tent area set up was nice but it wasn’t as private as expected but I believe there are other lots which we saw so others may have been more private. Loved the overall set up and the fact that they had an outhouse. Would recommend this to others!
Perfect car camping experience to escape the city - easy access from parking, available outhouse with running water, still felt secluded, private and in nature. Friendly host just present enough to provide support if needed but not so present as to impose on our privacy or camp experience. Would recommend to anyone seeking an easy city escape to sleep under the stars.
