MOUNTAIN GETAWAY WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS ADJOINING PEPACTON RESERVOIR

Andes House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with queen, sleeping loft with queen bed& futon, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Sheltered below a stand of spruce, lookout upon the pond and mountains--no buildings are visible, cathedral ceiling, dsl, Wifi, HD flat screen, surround sound, wood stove. Covered deck, charcoal grill, deck furniture, trails through tiered property of meadows & woods, fruit & nut trees & hundreds of plantings supporting abundant wildlife. Bench under trees by pond, 2 streams, adjoins thousands of acres of 20 mile long reservoir, on which I have a boat available for fishing, & as of May 2012 will be open for kayaking, canoeing, & removable keel sailboats—must register craft with DEP & have them cleaned & receive sticker. Hiking will also be expanded on reservoir property. Wonderful hiking throughout area & biking along quiet roads, lookout upon the mountains of the forever wild Catskill Park, yet only 12 minutes from the delightful village of Andes with shops, restaurants & galleries. Town pool + several lakes for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, Kayak & canoe on several NYC Reservoirs

Take great hikes starting at the front door or throughout the Catskill Park which offers trails of varying degrees of difficulty. The quiet winding road that runs below my properties is a favorite for bicyclists--it is 14 miles from my house to the end of the road in Downsville and you will only pass 7 homes along the way. Have a large group? Rent both of my homes (12 maximum)--see my other listing on this site 138165

My other house (a cabin) is the nearest dwelling--a hundred yards away up the hill and hidden behind the embankment of spruce trees. If the cabin is rented the rentees may ask you if they can use the pond or walk the property and down to the streams. That is entirely up you and do not feel pressured in anyway to grant that request if you feel uncomfortable. Use of my rowboat IS shared by both rentals. I keep the oars, life jackets and anchor in the shed behind the house but they may be at the cabin.

5 ski resorts in the area as well a snow tubing. Bring snowshoes & crampons for the Catskill trails. Several rivers offer good kayaking and canoeing, while the Beaverkill is a world class fly fishing stream. Or just curl up by the fire with a book and beverage of choice. In summer sit on the deck and watch fireflies dance under a star studded sky, I hope you find this a comfortable mountain retreat to recharge & reconnect.

You are only allowed to place Registered Rowboats on the reservoir & as of May 2012 you will be allowed kayaks, canoes, removable keel sailboats (all must be steam cleaned and registered at available locations. I have a registered row boat on the reservoir and it is available to rentees who have a NY State fishing license plus a Public Access Permit, obtained (free) from the NYC Department of Environmental Protection. All NYCDEP regulations apply.

I love this area of the Catskills. The property is beautiful and the house is adequate for a small family. Everything is provided, except a few extra towels would be nice! The owner was very accommodating and it was a pleasure to meet him. If you do not like the outdoors then go to a resort. This is a great, quiet getaway and I will be returning again. Not many restaurants in the area but for a week it is enough. Reservoir just a short distance away so fishing is great. Lots of woods to investigate although the warning of bears all around did put me off a bit.

Great getaway for outdoor lovers

Spent a great weekend at Michael's property! We love to cook and explore nature and were able to enjoy doing both here. The property has beautiful views from the cozy front porch and we especially liked the ability to walk out the front door with our dog and have an easy hike down to a lovely stream. Although big rambunctious dogs may not be the best fit for this house due to some of the more fragile furnishings, mellow ones would love it. We didn't make it onto the reservoir in Michael's boat but we can recommend hiking around Andes Lake for a day trip.

We had a fabulous week in this gorgeous house in a gorgeous setting. The entire area is a wonderful get-away with many activities available, or a perfect setting to just sit and unwind. We were two adults, a dog, and an 8-year-old. The 8-year-old was thrilled exploring the creek, playing in the yard, and wandering through the meadows; the dog was happy sniffing out rabbits and playing with the neighbor’s dog from down the road; the adults were happy hiking through the woods and sitting on the front porch enjoying the spectacular view. We found great swimming (for both dogs and humans) in a beautiful setting up the road and had a lovely meal in town one evening. The owner was wonderfully accommodating and full of information. The house is loaded with a fascinating collection of artifacts from nature. Children who are able to enjoy an item without touching it would do wonderfully here. High-energy dogs could pose a problem. We’ve recommended it to many friends and hope to get back there again.

Tranquility and Contentment

This is the most beautiful house and property that I have ever visited. So cozy and separated from all the stresses that plague our lives on a daily basis. My husband and I had been run ragged since the snow melted this year to get our home ready for our wedding in August. We desperately needed a place to wind down and reconnect to the earth and ourselves. As soon as we pulled into the driveway, the house was so quaint and beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. I could just feel the tension seep out of my muscles and mind. We spent the next 7 days exploring the property, which is also a small wildlife sanctuary. The pond, creeks, mountains, freshly mowed paths, birds, deer, rabbits, and even the amazing dogs from up the road made this home away from home the perfect destination for us to start our new life. The home itself is a quiet beauty. The space inside is very appealing and comfortable. Our time there couldn't have been more enjoyable, I recommend this peaceful place to anyone who enjoys nature and to all that connects us to this beautiful planet. Michael is a very sweet and intriguing person, you can see and feel that he put his very soul into creating this place. He is accommodating and available should you have any problems or questions. I couldn't be more grateful to him for sharing his little piece of heaven with us. Thank you so very much, I will never forget the magic of this place.
