Listed by Sherret Chase, Select Sotheby's Int Realty
This cabin, perched above the meadow-lands of what used to be the shores of historic Lake Nottawassaga (known as Honk Lake, now an empty meadow) with the Rondout Creek winding through the meadows, is at the foothills of the Catskill Mountain's Vernooy Kill State Forest above Napanoch. Excellent opportunity for an AirBnB. See the aerial video at this link: This cottage is out of "Hansel and Gretel" and has been privately owned for over 80 years, so this is the first time it has been offered to the public. This unusual gem has a broad meadow for the broad view in front, surrounded by the Vernooy Kill State Forest hills of Wawarsing and has the Catskill Mountains in the distant view to the north and the Shawangunks to the southeast. The Rondout Creek runs through the midst of the meadow. The meadow is not included in this offering but will be owned for conservation purposes and will not be built upon in the future. This charming and well maintained cottage above the Honk Lake meadows has panoramic views to the north across to the Vernooy Kill State Forest of the Catskills beyond the Rondout Creek which meanders picturesquely though the meadow with much wildlife. The cottage is a single room combining bedroom/living/kitchen with a fireplace. Nearby are the remnants of the Yama Farms Resort, the famed summer residence of many famous dignitaries during the turn of the century. Further up the valley is the large Rondout Reservoir, home of giant trout, which permits row boats. Nearby are the trails of Vernooy Kill State Forest, Lippman Park, Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, Sundown Wild Forest, etc. Many adventure recreation opportunities offer themselves with world class rock climbing in the Shawangunks, mountain biking and hiking in Minnewaska, hang gliding in Ellenville, and hiking the unique Dwarf Pine forest in Cragsmoor, as well as Antiquing, Flea Markets, Yard Sales, Summer Stock Theater, Wine Trails, Farm Produce, and U-Pick 'Em fruits and vegetables, canoe and kayaking, fishing, hunting, and many fine restaurants within 10-15 minutes.
