Experience the Beauty and Relaxation of The Hawks Nest Cabin: A Must-Visit Gay Travel Destination in the Catskills

Welcome to The Hawks Nest Cabin, a contemporary 1155 sqft. cabin nestled above The Delaware River just 2 minutes past the iconic Hawks Nest Highway. As a gay traveler who is always on the hunt for LGBTQ-friendly travel destinations, I found this place to be a perfect private getaway for a couple, a group of gay or at least gay-friendly friends :), or solo travelers like myself. With breathtaking views from the 20+ windows, a hot tub, a fire pit, river access, and a comfy living space, this charming cabin in the woods is the perfect place to get away from it all. The cabin is nestled on a short dirt road that leads to this natural knotty pine Catskill haven.

The outdoor amenities were one of my favorite parts, the large deck with river views, 4-burner grill, dining and lounge seating, 4-person hot tub (Bluetooth speakers) and fire pit, and private river access all made this a perfect spot to unwind and relax. I enjoyed my favorite wine in the hot tub while taking in the breathtaking views of the river. The cabin was also a perfect backdrop for my boudoir photoshoot for the Cocky Cowboy series.

One morning, I was sitting on the couch enjoying my morning coffee by the fireplace when I heard loud stomping on the balcony. When I turned my head, I saw a bear walking on the balcony, enjoying the river views with me. It was quite an interesting sight!
