About Anna Roy

I am a mother to a spunky 10 yr old, a Brooklyn based chef with a catering business and an yoga instructor. Have owned this home since 2002 and have rented it successfully for the last 11 yrs. This home was a diamond in the rough when I found it and for 3 years since been a labor of love to convert it into this beautiful home that I am able to share with travelers from around the world. I feel blessed to own this treasure and provide memorable experiences for our guests and on occasion be able to escape the city with my daughter and enjoy the home for ourselves and our family.

Anna Roy purchased this villa in 2002

Why Anna Roy chose Bethel

The house is less than 2 hrs from NY, easy access by Shortline bus from Port Authority to Monticello, great for groups of 8 or less. This house is on 10 acres of private hillside property, overlooking the magnificent Catskills mountains. Close to neat little towns like Jeffersonville, Calicoon, Harrisburg and Livingston Manor. Winter fun with skiing, sledding, snowboarding. It feels like you've traveled a 1000 miles away and have retreated into a tranquil place with nothing but magnificent nature all around. Bird watch, and gaze at the lovely shimmering Swan Lake, sit on the deck , wrap yourself in the big open skies and enjoy the silence. Private heated pool in the summer, great hiking trails, water recreation activities near by, working farms, farmers markets, antiquing, and Nature, nature, nature.

What makes this villa unique

This property is unique in its construction, style and ideally located within 2 hrs of the city. There is plenty of acreage for children and pets to run and play freely, and away from streets making it safe. The modern construction, and up to date amenities& decorations set in a rural area makes it that much more unique. The house has been decorated by great designers, and art work by owner and artist community local and from Brooklyn

Private fenced in full size in ground pool with over the top views.

Stocked kitchen with spices and utensils and pots/pans. Serving ware and place settings for 8-10. OUtdoor bbq grill. Patio seating for 8-10.

Guestbook comments from the owner


The vacation and your house have been a dream.

Not only is the house even better than the pictures online, but the aesthetic and the art around the house make the exprience exceptional. I truly can't wait to come back....if you'll have me of course.

We will be leaving around one, and will be sure to bring the heat down and turn the water off.

I hope you enjoyed Tulum.

Thank you,

A treat to be savored.....

  • 5 of 5

we were graciously invited by our friends to come spend a weekend with them at this house they had rented last August.. we had a conflict with another rental we had in fire island, and for a variety of different reasons we ended up here. Was a truly delightful getaway. We have just now completed a reservation for a week this summer and so excited. The experience cannot be really captured with the photos, but the home has a gentle soothing comfort to it and the views are indescribable. The nearby towns have a real country vibe, unlike perhaps some of the more developed towns like Woodstock... small and charming without feeling overrun by tourists. Our saturday night dinner at the 1906 restaurant in Calicoon exceeded all our expectations... we really enjoyed the town in general.

A snowy wintry day here in NYC today, no school, and i had to write about this because i cant wait to see our daughter splashing around for endless hours in the gorgeous pool. The owner/landlord has been really easy to work with. I recommend this wholeheartedly

Perfect place for a holiday with friends & kids

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to have a break away with our friends. Anna was very helpful, the directions were clear and the place was easy to get to. The house was spotless when we got there and although it was rather hot outside, it was nice and cool inside. The kitchen was well stocked including spices, condiments and oils and local stores were easily accessible too. There was plenty of space to comfortably sleep all of us and the bathrooms, although small, were enough for all of us.

The pool was amazing (and safe for the children) with a spectacular view. Ideal place to laze about on a hot sunny afternoon!

The house that keeps on giving!

  • 5 of 5

I am being forced to write this review if I have a chance of renting it again this summer. Jokes! We love Anna, she is a goddess and the home is divine.

Over the last 7 yrs since our oldest was a baby we have rented this home 4 times and back again this summer for a week. We cannot wait especially after this winter.

I cant say enough good things about this home... the drive up to the house and the surrounding areas are picturesque setting like the hills of Tuscany. The home itself from the outsides is impressive shaded by trees and tucked away on a hill with big open yard and a fenced in heated pool with flowering trees. I kid you not. What more could a family of 6 and a dog ask for.

The interiors are very comfortable, modern and real easy on the eye. No jarring furniture pieces, accents ... all calm neutral shades . The kitchen and deck are our favorite parts of the home. So many fond memories of dinners and bbqs on the deck. Hiking trails nearby are great for kids our ages. nothing too strenuous and we do a day out canoeing in the Delaware gap. Horese back riding at Bridle Hill farms is another activity we venture out for. HIghly recommend

We cant speak to the restaurants in the area, as we have a crew of fussy eaters!

The reason we come back here as often as we do has to do as muwith the home and convenience in terms of proximity and the comfort of the place, but also because of the hospitality that we receive, the attention from their manager and great honest communication. We just know its going to be a top notch trip and our older 2 kids literally won't go anywhere else. Nothing else compares!

Thank you Anna... now can we book a week this summer ? :)

Top 5 vacation homes i have stayed in around NYC

  • 5 of 5

My family in Montreal and Arizona and I have rented this little slice of paradise outside of NYC two times. Last year summer was unbeatable even though temperatures was not so hot.. The pool was surprisingly warm with a lot of sunlight. We just came back from our winter weekend and went skiing with nieces and was so much fun. The house itself is everything you would like in a vacation home away from city, comfortable beds, quiet, secluded, clean, great kitchen, views , space, & wi- fi!

Such a pretty home, nice paintings, art , and furnishings. Unfortunately we can not come back this summer and we are sad about it, but we hope to come and check it out in the fall.

Our secret sweet spot :)

Thank you again Anna. You are very wonderful.

Home with a view and a lot of heart

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in we felt ease and comfort. Fell in love with the home and we were able to have a weekend of relaxation and warmth with our family.

Beautiful wintry setting, warm stove, hot meals, lots of quiet and lots of laughter. The home was a perfect setting for all of this and we left feeling replenished but sad to leave. The manager of the property, Sonia was kind, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. She had the house warm for us when we arrived which was a huge plus as we had a 3 month old in tow. House was spotless, kitchen exquisite and rooms very comfortable for a peaceful night sleep.

A trip back this summer is brewing and we hope to make it happen.

Thank you Anna. You've done a great job!

Relaxing easy weekend in a peaceful clean home

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a lovely relaxing weekend in the new york countryside. Though this home was a little more expensive than what we had hoped for a long weekend we thought it was worth the extra money. Easy drive and easy to find. Beautiful, clean, peaceful... just everything we wanted and easy on the eye. Nice furniture choices and views. We wish we could escape and go there every weekend. Also we are now curious about the area and want to explore it more.

Property manager was smart and responsive.
