The recycled cabin was built over the course of two years, all with recycled materials or from trees from around the property. It has a king bed and enough solar power to play vinyl records and light your way in the night.

Staying at this cabin was a truly magical experience. Secluded away in a corner of the forest, there was a stream near by and a waterfall only a short 5 min hike away. The cabin was decorated with LED lights, inside and out, tiki torches and Christmas lights that lit up the site in the nighttime. There’s no shower but there’s a large tub right outside the cabin, with fairy lights forming an arch above. The tub could be filled up with water from the stream and heated by making a larger fire in the fire pit. Not only was it adorable on the outside, but also on the rustic inside of the cabin. The record player with a variety of records on the side was a nice touch. It hooked up to a speaker outside so you could be cooking on the grill and listening to a Led Zeppelin record at the same time. To get upstairs you had to climb up some steep stairs holding onto a rope (which totally added to the experience:). This king size bed was one of the comfiest I had ever slept in, and with a window right by, you could look out and see the deep forest at any time. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, an escape from reality, in a secluded woodland environment this is the perfect place! It’s obvious a lot of work went into building this place and there was much attention to detail. From the little beaded decorations hanging outside, to the hammocks, to the carved wooden seats, to the liquor bottle torches. This whimsical cabin throws you into another land and time. My boyfriend and I extremely enjoyed staying here and I highly recommend it to couples and smaller families. Thanks again! (Even the outhouse was cute!)

This cabin was even better than what we expected. The photos just don’t do justice for this beautiful hidden gem. We arrived later in the day but there were no issues checking in. Upon arrival we quickly found ourselves comfortable with the surroundings of the property. We were extremely surprised how comfortable and clean the cabin was as well. I would definitely recommend this cabin to a music buff, as the record collection is perfect for the setting and the sound system is awesome inside and out the cabin! Another key enjoyment to the cabin was the outdoor hot tub which is heated by the fire. This was the perfect way to unwind after a long day of exploring. All in all this cabin exceeded our expectations and had us wishing we booked a longer stay! I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for the perfect escape!

We had an amazing time here. The cabin was cosy, the record player (+great records) was a brilliant extra, and the whole setup - fire pit, grill, stream nearby, river a short walk away - made for exactly the kind of switch-off we were looking for. The area around is beautiful too. Highly recommended. (We had our six-year-old daughter with us, and she loved it too.)

This is a great place to unplug. The hosts are warm, friendly and attentive. The cabin is full of nice surprises such as the LP collection and kitchenette. The whole place is wonderful, the river and waterfalls are beautiful and only an easy short walk away. In a word, a gem!

The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cabin is fantastic, it has everything you need. We took a camping stove to save us the hassle of building a fire every time we cooked. The waterfall and the river are so beautiful and they are so close by, that we went every day. A great retreat, close to the city and still you can unplug yourself. The only minor downside is that you can hear the road from the campsite.

There isn’t a bad thing to say about this place. The cabin is adorable, comfortable and private. The site is amazing and all the work the owners have put into it will have you in awe. The hot tub fills with fresh creek water and can even be heated by the fire pit! So relaxing. The surrounding area has a hiking path out to the waterfall, such a cool place to hang out. The hosts were gracious and down to earth, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay.

This location was exactly as advertised. The location was secluded enough so you could be left alone but not to far for last minute needs and supplies. It's only a short walk to the waterfalls and a field is available for games/activities. The campsite itself was very well maintained and well crafted by the owner. It has everything you could need from gravity fed flowing water, solar power for some light and record player, and even a hot tub heated by the firepit. The contacts/owner were very responsive and helpful from start to finish. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

We spent a lovely weekend at this cabin. It was amazing. Dennis was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our mini vacation.

The cabin is cozy and adorable, the woods around it are beautiful. River and waterfall just 10 minutes hike away. This place has everything you need. Fireplace, grill, hammocks, hot tub which you can fill with fresh stream water and heat by fire pit. Forget about your bluetooth speaker and its horrible sound quality. Turntable, amazing indoor and outdoor speakers, and dozens of vinyl records to play are overwhelmingly better.

We highly recommend The Cabin on the Mongaup River and can't wait to return!

Oh what a magical cabin!
We spent 3 nights and had an amazing time!
We were greeted by Dennis and His son Mason, who helped drive all of our things down to the campsite with their quad. Dennis gave us the rundown and set us up with firewood, nice and simple. The Sound system is AMAZING, so many good vinyls to listen to. The bed is extremely comfortable, the cabin is adorable and the scenery is majestic. At night the stars are insane!! Its only a quick hike down to the waterfall and river, which is absolutely beautiful. The cabin literally had everything you need. Anything you need to cook with, they have it!

There are so many attractions within a short drive. Port Jervis has anything you need, and a phenomenal vegan restaurant called Fogwood and Fig. We visited the tri state monument, witch you drive through a really old cemetery to get to, super cool. Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary is a fun visit, they make and sell their own hot sauce! You can head over to Bethel Woods, where the original woodstock took place. You can drive up to High Point, which has a huge monument that you can climb up to the top and see everything. There are so many things to do. There are a ton of hiking spots around also.

We had such a fun time and will absolutely go back. Dennis and his family are so sweet and accommodating. Thank you for an amazing birthday week, It exceeded my expectations.
