The Clipper Cottage is the perfect Catskill Mountain getaway located on Yankee Lake, 90 minutes from NYC. This hip and trendy home is newly renovated, with a 300 sq ft porch and deck area. The property is gorgeous and merges indoor and outdoor living seamlessly. There is a long patio table for outside dining, a fire pit, a separate lounge area for relaxing, and meditation area complete with a Buddha statue.

About the neighbourhood
We bought the house in January and then had a long term renter that stayed still the end of May. We really love the area because we have friends that live in Bethel, Masten Lake, and Livingston Manor.

We are in a hamlet called Mamakating, in the town of Wurstboro. It's convenient because it's located between Middletown and Monticello where you can get a bit of suburban convenience with shopping complex, restaurant, and movies. There are a lot of parks and lakes in the area and it's located near towns like Bethel, Livingston Manor, and Ellensville. The area has a rich outdoorsy life all year round. There are ATV and MX trails within 10 minutes of our cabin, we allow guests to bring their ATVs and dirt bikes etc, just give us a heads up.
