Time Out says

Getaway has perfected the art of tiny houses with its crop of tiny cabins spread across the U.S., including its outpost in Roscoe, NY. Set in the virtual wilderness, just south of the Pepacton Reservoir, staying in one of its tiny cabins offers a total escape from "civilization," placing you on quiet acreage with just a few neighbors around you. You're isolated, but you're isolated together.

It's unlikely you'll see or hear your neighbors since everyone is spread out and disconnected from technology. Plus, check-in and check-out are contactless, so you don't have to come in contact with another human if you so desire. Each cabin offers enough privacy so that it feels like you're all alone. The large picture window in front of the bed looks directly out onto the nature that sprawls out before it. Laying in bed looking out the window is the most amazing feeling, especially if you're lucky enough to witness falling snow or an incredible sunset.

Each cabin has heat, one or two comfy queen-sized beds depending on your reservation, a large picture window for admiring nature through, books, games a full bathroom, a kitchenette with a stovetop and mini-fridge as well as an outdoor fire pit for those nights you want to roast some marshmallows together. Getaway provides logs and firestarter as well as a s'mores kit—for a fee—which we think is worth it. 

You likely won't be able to connect with the outside world—there's seldom cellphone service and definitely no Wi-Fi. To lean into the disconnection, you can place your phone in a phone box to keep it out of sight and out of mind. After a while, you'll get used to it (trust us) and enjoy being unreachable.

Getaway has 16 outposts with over 600 cabins around the country, including another in the Eastern Catskills and one in Machimoodus, CT.
