The Green Cottage exceeded all expectations. Gail was a fantastic host and super communicative through the entire process. Everything was exactly as she stated, and the property itself is very clean with an exceptional floor plan for a family of 4 or two couples traveling together - plenty of separate space and lots of community spaces to enjoy time together. There was everything you could think of - outdoor spaces to enjoy the autumn breeze, games indoors and all sorts of cooking appliances in the kitchen. We ended up eating most meals at the Cottage rather than going out. This was perfect for us. Also a major treasure for anyone going to be at HITS in Saugerties as it is a short drive away making it easy to do night checks and care for the horses while also enjoying down time away from the barn.

Gail's home is a trip back in history but with modern conviences. The result is a very special vacation. My family highly recommend this property.

Green Cottage was a perfect Labor Day meeting place for our family. The house was everything advertised; we were only minutes from hiking trails; and our rain day turned into great family time with Gail's puzzles and games.

We really could've have been happier with our stay at Gail's cottage. Everything was so well appointed - you can see how much she cares about this home. Plenty of room for a few guests or just a couple looking to get some work done and enjoy their privacy. So close to hiking trails or dinner in Catskill it is an ideal location. Gail was so welcoming and an excellent communicator - we're already hoping to come back in the winter and enjoy the indoor/outdoor fireplaces. Highly recommended!

My five year old son and wife stayed here for a long weekend. The house is lovely, well appointed and has everything a family needs to enjoy the nearby activities. Gail is extremely helpful and couldn't be nicer.

I am a nice person who works in New York City pushing pixels for a big law firm. My husband is a teacher of guitar, bass and keyboards. We hope you enjoy Green Cottage as much as we do.
