The location for me was perfect, only 1.3 miles from a wedding ceremony occurring the weekend of my stay. Prior to this weekend, I planned a couple of bicycle routes to ride before and after the wedding. I stayed at The Tremper cabin, one of their smallest and least expensive. Since it was only myself, this cabin was more than... More

We spend a few days in the cabin room and we were surprised on how clean, well stocked and organized everything was. Susan keeps the place in great condition. We BBQ'd everyday and got to enjoy our lawn area outside daily. The porch is a nice touch with a table and some chairs to enjoy a cold beverage and admire... More

Stayed at Simpler TImes for a night during our stay in the area. The cabin was clean, functional, and perfect for what we needed. These cabins aren't exactly tucked away in the woods though, so don't expect to be immersed in nature.

Nice little place, cabin was clean and well stocked with all we needed. It was uncomfortably hot while there but the ceiling fans helped, at least one room did, one bedroom ceiling fan had the blades installed opposite each other so effectively canceled each other out, strange! Equally strange was the fact that we checked ourselves in, there was a... More

Great little spot in the Catskills. The owners are as sweet and friendly in person as they sound on the phone. We stayed in a cabin for one night with 3 kids and had plenty of space and absolutely enjoyed the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We ate outside on the picnic table and watched the stars come out. The cabin... More

We just returned from 3 days and two night stay in Simple Times Cabins. Stay was beyond our expectations. We rented Log Cabin and this one is so cozy inside! Amazingly fancy little wooden house with so many great details of great style and everything that you need. Owners are very easy to talk to. The process of booking is... More

I am a city girl through and through while my husband, by contrast was raised camping hunting etc. Simpler Times Cabins is an amazing compromise. I was afraid that my first time in the woods would result in me "going" outdoors, being cold and uncomfortable. Not so with STC. It has all the amenities I needed but with the seclusion... More

We came upon this place by accident fairly late on a fall foliage weekend Saturday and were pleasantly surprised. At the time, the only cabin left was tiny #7, but it was comfortable and exuded an old world flair. I rated "sleep quality" a 3 simply for the reason that there were only two twin beds lined up toe to... More

We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a kitchen, a total of maybe 400-500 square feet. Everything was clean, and the house was warm (it was a February visit), which is really all we care about. The decor isn't nearly so fancy as you'd find in an actual bed and breakfast, but it has a certain working class country... More
