This Catskills cabin is “glamping” at its finest—you’re not quite roughing it, but you’re still sleeping in the middle of the wilderness. The property, located on 20 acres that also holds a farm house, woods, meadow and two small ponds, is available for $120/night through Airbnb. The owners built this cabin to be totally off-grid: it’s powered by solar lights, there’s a composting toilet and a rain-water sink. It’s a perfect escape for New Yorkers who’d like to unplug and unwind in the middle of nowhere.

The actual cabin isn’t large by any means, just 12-feet by 26-feet. What’s most impressive is the property that surrounds it, which is both forest and meadow, and changes dramatically each season.

The wood interior is pretty bare bones—the simplicity is designed as a “retreat for a spiritual person, artist, writer or a relaxing getaway for a busy city runner,” according to the owner. They also promise that you can use the bathroom or shower in the main house, if needed.

From the porch you get a view of the surrounding landscape, which includes deer, bear, rabbit, and different types of birds in the woods.

There may be no kitchen, but you’ve got access to fire for cooking.

And who needs a proper dining room when you could eat on this porch in the middle of the wilderness? This cabin is simplicity at its best, offering just the essentials and an opportunity to focus on the natural setting.
