Beaverbrook Cottage

About beaverbrook cottage

Beaverbrook Cottage is a fully renovated two-story Quonset hut nestled on five secluded acres of old-growth forest and blueberry bushes in Narrowsburg, New York—just 100 miles from New York City and 15 minutes from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (founded  on the historic Woodstock festival site). 

Every detail has been designed to help you escape and unwind in every season. Spread out in the Great Room, dine in the screened-in gazebo, and make s’mores around the fire pit. Snuggle under a handmade quilt. Wake up to birdsong. Take a trip to town, go for a hike, explore the river, visit historic sites or just relax… it’s entirely up to you.
