Prized by movie scouts or location hunter,Perfect compromise between wildlife & culture! Romantic, charming, but comfortable house, 3 bedroom (sleeps 8) 1 bathroom, 5/6 person hot tub, fireplace, all amenities (dishwasher, washer/dryer, satellite TV with more than 180 channels, DVD player, WIFI and more).
River across the street and stream in the back of the property where you can sit and relax. The incredible advantage of this place is not only the fact that it's really adorable & restful but also its amazing location.
Surrounded by the mountains (Hunter, Belleayre) and forest (the back of the property is a national forest!) just walk across the bridge to be right in the center of the Town of Phoenicia, its great variety of restaurants (especially Sweet Sue and its well renowned phenomenal pancakes, people from all over the world come for them!), shops, and NYC buses that bring you there in two hours! Perfect for couples with/without children, family/friend reunion, weddings (we hosted quite a few because of its color!) and celebration.. the snow is a real show right now!

Location! Location! Location... and so much charm!
Louis, my husband and I just loved the artsy community, the proximity from New York City ( 2hours only) the accessibility for our friends who do not have a car ( yep!we can take a direct bus from Port Authority and be in front of the door , or almost two hours later!) and the fact that the property is private, secluded but 5mn walking distance from the center of the village of Phoenicia.
Nature is just outstanding all around.. a true harbor of peace , calm and joy!
by the way, on the Google map, you might see a little rail road in front of the house: it has been abandoned since 1945! but , by the bridge, in the Summer a little train that goes through the mountains ( kids love it!) stops there.. once again, not in front of the house at all!
be our guests! we love sharing this house !
Peace, recollection and overwhelming nature and beauty...
Louis and I are both Opera singers, we travel a lot, for professional reasons, New York City is where we need to be most of the time, and having the opportunity to disconnect is a true blessing.
We ' charge the battery' up here! even for one night only, the break is so obvious that it seems like a whole week of vacation!
we love the fantastic choice of restaurants, galleries,cultural life but the perfect mix with nature, hiking etc.. and we just have to jump in a car to get all that.. no plane, no security checking, no luggage, no dramatic expenses...
Phoenicia is a gem! It's the cutest village in the Catskills, and filled will activities: restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, antiques, even a theatre that's always doing productions. Nearby is a world-class spa, a 24-hour fruit stand, great ski mountains (Hunter, Bellayre, Wyndham), beautiful hikes, horseback riding, all within a couple of hours of New York City.
Other Activities: winter sports, tubing, kayaking, wine tasting, concerts, festival, fairs..
