My husband and I along with 2 other couples stayed at Kate's Lazy Cabin. I was really surprised by how run down the place seemed. The first thing we noticed was a musky smell in the place. I've spent my entire life going up to the country for stretches of time, so I understand that this happens after rain/humidity, but this was so bad that during the first night, one of the guests woke up having trouble breathing and had to be relocated the next day to a different room in the main building, about 15 minutes away from the cabin. If you are an asthma sufferer or have allergies, this is not the place for you. (I can say that the staff was very understanding and helpful in relocating my friend with the issue).
We were staying at the cabin to attend a wedding at Onteora Mountain House, so we were not using the kitchen, which I was thankful for. The appliances were all pretty run down. I like to cook and had I come to the cabin with friends planning for a weekend of making big meals and hanging out, I would have been seriously disappointed.
Also, the cabin sleeps 6, but if all 6 of us were hanging out at the cabin, there would not have been much room to do so. The living room has one couch which is on the small side and a long table with bench seating. For 6 adults to hang out in the living room two, maybe three, would have had a couch to sit on while the others chose between floor and wooden bench.
Had the idea not been to hang out in the cabin, but go out and explore, this still would not have been an ideal location. It is a pretty far drive from any attraction. For the money spent, I found no real redeeming quality.
