Catskills House

So I found this little gem from a good friend of mine, thanks John!, this house is small but packs a ton of charm.  It is a 9 x 14 foot house located in the Catskills.  Originally a hunting cabin I believe, she had done quite a bit with not too much.

Ms. Foster has her own shabby-chic retreat. It may not have a bathroom or a kitchen, but it is a dream of Victoriana: stacks of Limoges china with tiny rosebud patterns; chandeliers dripping crystal; billows of tissue-paper garlands.

This is all the more impressive because she renovated the 9-by-14-foot cottage, an old hunting cabin, herself. The cost of renovating and furnishing it: $3,000.


  1. Restrictions in the codes governing permanent dwellings normally require both kitchen and bathroom. I assume that an outhouse stands in for the missing bathroom but an open fire with a tripod above the fire doesn’t sound very serviceable. I suspect that this is a hideaway used only occasionally.

  2. See my comment above.

  3. Very romantic…. mmmm

  4. Simply stunning; it looks like something straight out of a dream. So elegant, and fairy-tail like. Brava!

  5. I love this! Unfortunately my cats and dogs would leave black and brown hairs all over the lovely whiteness. Still, I’d love a little retreat like this! Well done!
