Overview

Ellenville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This enchanting Catskill Mountain lake front house which is a stones throw from the lake is a 'home away from home'. Many windows and glass doors allow for an 'inside outside' experience with a comfortable deck overlooking the lake. Take a canoe ride or walk on the iced lake January through early March. Enjoy the peace and quiet of a 50 acre lake.

The house itself is on a small road; there is a neighboring house on one side separated by trees and foliage, with forest and lake on the other three sides. There are two bedrooms and one bath. A spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom with a queensize futon bed, skylights, sleep sofa and balcony. One bedroom is downstairs with a queensize bed and you awaken looking at the lake. The living room has cathedral ceilings, glass exposures to the lakeside with a fully furnished kitchen. Wood-burning stove, in addition to the oil furnace, makes it very cozy on chilly days. There is original artwork, rugs, etc. which adds to the charm of our house. All cotton linens, with flannel for cooler weather and down comforters.

Many all season activities are close by, some within minutes, others within a 30 to 45 minute drive. For example, hanggliding, gliding, hiking, rockclimbing, The ski resorts of Hunter, Windham and Belleayre are about an hour north. A smaller ski resort, Holiday Mountain (in Monticello) is 35 to 40 minutes drive.

Come and rejuvenate in a 'retreat' from worldly cares! Roam the country-side or bring books and good food and observe the lake with all it's many moods. Just recline on a sofa and look out. Down the 'hill' (10 minutes) in tiny Ellenville, you'll find grocery stores and a couple of restaurants - an excellent one where reservations are recommended. There are also pizza, deli and diners available.

Two hours from New York City. Forty-five minutes from Kingston, New Paltz, Woodstock, Middletown, Monticello.

Why Carroll Chisholm chose Ellenville

My husband and I are originally from the South and having grown up on water, we wanted a property with water !

What makes this house unique

It's such fun to watch for the various wildlife - ducks, geese, herons, turtles, frogs, deer, raccoons, skunks... Each season brings Bliss ! The Spring is a miracle of growth after the ravages of winter, summer is oh so wonderfully warm and sometimes even hot ! , the Fall is spectacular with all manner of color of leaves, etc. and the winter is 'Terrible Beauty' ... the snows and ice come and you watch it all happen and stoke the wood burning stove/ cook favorite foods and curl up being oh so cozy. But ... don't get me started about the year-round beauty !

Relaxing and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here in September 2014 with our two small dogs. We loved it. The house was clean and cozy. We relaxed on the deck, went on hikes, and used the wood-burning stove at night. Would go back again.

Gorgeous Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue. I stayed at this property for a long weekend last September 2013 with my boyfriend and my dog (Ralfie). The house is exactly as pictured and described. We loved the bedroom in the loft with all the light coming in. It was kind of tricky driving up there at night (we came from the city) with all the winding roads and very limited lights, but once daylight comes around and you start driving around town, you get the hang of all the turns. The house has almost everything you can think of. We didn't use the kitchen here since we were only here for the weekend and the town has some nice restaurants (try Aroma Thyme). This past August we stayed at Carol's other house on the property and we cooked in that one. The best part of this property is the access to the lake and use of the kayaks. We all loved it, including the pup. Carol is very friendly and was responsive with communications leading up to the visit and while up there. If you're as lucky as we were to have gorgeous weather during the fall, you can take some amazing photos with vibrant fall foliage. We loved it so much we came back again this year, and look forward to making this a recurring trip. Thanks Carol!

Comfortable, Quiet, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary here. We sought solitude, a comfortable living space and a spot for our dog to get her ya-yas out. We spent early mornings sitting by the wood stove drinking coffee, reading and watching the sun inject color into the view of the surrounding fall foliage. Carrol and John keep a very warm and welcoming homey place and had taken the time to stash plenty of fire wood and kindling in the front porch making it easy to get a fire going. We really enjoyed ourselves in this little cottage.

wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a peaceful, private retreat on the water where we could relax, fish, canoe, and enjoy the outdoors every day. We found all of this here. Upon entering the house, we were immediately met by lots of natural light coming from the many windows, and drawn to the back deck that overlooked the spacious backyard and serene lake. (Of note, there are thick curtains on all windows downstairs and upstairs that can be pulled closed at night for privacy--we appreciated this, being in the ‘wilderness.’)

Wine at sunset on the large back lawn also became a daily activity, as did fishing off the shore and the dock a few steps next door.

An avid fisherman, my husband found the fishing to be pretty good, catching a few 5lb bass while I caught a couple gigantic pickerel--my signature catch. Live bait/shiners didn’t work well except for catching pickerel. My husband also caught a few small perch and crappies. Beavers swimming about in the early morning was a new site and very much added to the experience of being in such a natural environment.

We appreciated that the owners are nearby and not at all intrusive. The house is secluded enough to feel private but close enough to town (about a 12 minute drive) to make daily trips for fresh produce and other grocery items easy and even enjoyable. We grilled most nights but also enjoyed a lovely night out at Aroma Thyme Bistro, which offers an interesting menu and a warm, upscale environment.

All in all, we would highly recommend this home and hope to visit it again next year.

Great Find

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! The views of the lake are even better in person. The Lake House was comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed wine tasting on the Shawangunk Wine Trail and had an excellent dinner in town at the Aroma Thyme Bistro.

The owners were friendly and easy to work with. Would rent again!
