My husband, small dog and I stayed here for a long weekend in the fall and were so impressed with the cottage! The owners Jerry & Ray truly have an eye for detail and design and there was not one amenity overlooked. The house is in pristine condition, but is absolutely charming and comfortable and we felt we could cozy in and feel at home. The decor is rustic, yet chic and everything is beautiful- the bathroom hardware, plush bedding and cushions all over the house, high-end soaps and cleaning products and funky light fixtures and switches. We also particularly enjoyed the unique floor heating system (as did the dog!) which kept us toasty in the evenings and mornings and gave the house an all-around feeling of warmth without oppressive heat. We had so many areas of the house to enjoy: coffee on the screened in porch and breakfast in the carved out nook; cocktail hour on the patio and digestifs at the firepit; lunch from the grill on the deck and dinner at the communal table. The kitchen was also well stocked with all necessary cooking utensils/pots/pans/grill tools and servingware and we found we were capable of managing just about every meal at the house.
Jerry suggested a trip to the Saturday farmer's market where we stocked up on beautifully cultivated veggies and fruit, fresh whole chicken and homemade sausage, and even maple syrup! There is also easy access to any of the mountains/trails in Catskill Park to enjoy a bit of nature, but we also marveled at the stunning views of the fall foliage from the porch of the house, as well as the daily visits of various wildlife around the property-- blue heron in the creek, flock of wild turkeys and of course, deer!
Jerry made the booking extremely easy and gave excellent directions and guidance. All in all a wonderful retreat from the city (fresh air and stars abound!) and our family certainly hope we will be back!
