This is a lovely, well-appointed house on a gorgeous property with absolutely stunning views (pictures don't do it justice!). It's really very well situated - an easy 10-minute drive to Roscoe and Calicoon Center and maybe 20 minutes to Livingstone Manor and 15 minutes to Calicoon (on the Delaware River). If you want to be centrally located in Western Sullivan County, you can't do much better.
It's perfect for a do-nothing weekend in peace and quiet, but also a great base for hiking, antiquing, skiing, etc.
The property is peaceful and just isolated enough to be quiet and private, but it's not too far away from supermarkets and restaurants (not that there a lot of those in this part of the world). The house sits on top of a hill with a beautiful panoramic southern view of forested hills. A lovely pond really makes the whole scene special. It reflects the trees, and at night you can hear a bullfrog. You really couldn't arrange the property better if you tried.
There's plenty of room for outdoor activities (we set up a badminton net), nicely tended flower patches, and also lots of well-placed chairs for just taking in the view. (I can imagine there would be some great sledding in the winter).
In nice weather, there is a spacious, private deck with great views and a big sliding door to the kitchen. There's also a pretty covered porch if you want to stay out of the sun.
Inside, the house is very well maintained, with tasteful furnishings and spotless linens and towels. When we were there, we found that we had brought far too many utensils, as the kitchen has just about anything you could need.
There is a spacious upstairs bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. It shares a good-sized bathroom with a 2nd bedroom. Downstairs, there is another bedroom/full bathroom. Water pressure is great, and the well-water isn't too hard.
The dining room has a huge wooden table and stylish chandelier.
The living area is comfy, with a well-equipped office (printer, fax, reliable internet service, and great phone reception (we had three bars). There's a TV and stereo (with nice selection of movies and music).
The big kitchen is bright, with well-maintained appliances. The mudroom has w/d and extras (bug spray, torches, cleaning supplies, etc).
The owner is extremely accommodating and thoughtful. Honestly it's hard to think of anything we'd change. The only problem is we had to leave on Labor Day! We were beyond satisfied and will definitely be back!
