This classic log cabin sits nestled in the wooded expanse of the Catskills forest, in the community of the meandering Willowemoc Creek. Getting there is half the fun. It’s located ten minutes outside of the vibrant mountain town of Livingston Manor, tracing a quiet river road up to the cabin.

This property has extraordinary investment potential with two separate parcels, including the main log cabin and also a second smaller house. While the main log cabin needs some work to return it to it’s former glory, the latter is a bit unruly and likely needs to be replaced entirely. Imagine a separate guest house or a-frame, with its own privacy and driveway.


Three bedroom, one bathroom cabin | 864 square foot home on 2.01 acres | Wood burning stove | Rustic cabin offered as-is | Asking $249,900

The house is situated on one level. An intimate living space features a cathedral ceiling, providing both literal and figurative headspace. The living room, dining area and kitchen are open plan and tied together by a cozy wood stove. Down a short hallway are three bedrooms with good closet space and one shared bathroom with a powder blue tub/shower, sink and toilet set reminiscent of the 1940s.

Having been lovingly maintained and lived in year-round for over 20 years, the home has stood vacant for the past six years, so there are some unknowns. Though this wonderfully wild property needs some love and updates, its potential isn’t hard to see.

This potential-rich property is being sold “as is”. The sellers make no representations regarding the condition of the cabins. Cash preferred. Buyer to confirm all pertinent information including square footage, property taxes, short term rental restrictions, allowable uses.

The property is surrounded by forest and river, numerous fishing spots, swimming holes and hiking trails. It’s the perfect base camp for all your outdoor adventures, while being just minutes from foodie markets, restaurants, breweries, wine shops, trendy home goods and fashion forward shops, even a pilates studio. Just two hours from the city, this location is ideal as a weekend getaway, co-primary home or full time residence.
