Catskill Creek Cottage for Sale for $139,500

I don’t quite agree with the realtor’s description of this post and beam  Catskill Creek cottage as a “jewel box,” but I do think it has a lot of appealing features. I love hand-hewn beams and stonework, and the pitched ceiling gives this little house (625 sq. feet) an airier feel. The real selling point, though, is the Catskill Creek location. The cabin’s deck overlooks the creek as well as historic Black Bridge, making this one a good fit for kayaking and swimming hole enthusiasts who want to spend more time outside than in.The house is winterized, with both a natural gas furnace and a stone fireplace to keep you toasty when you’re Upstate snow-shoeing.

The cabin is on the outskirts of Catskill village, so you’d have convenience—and neighbors, though this one does feel private. Interesting back story, too: according to property records, this house was bought in 2002 for $1000. I wonder what it looked like then.

  1. Mighty cute. The peaked ceiling makes it look (and probably feel) a lot bigger than 625 sq. ft. It’s on a tiny lot, though. One wonders what’s on either side…
