3 BEDROOMS IN WINTER, SLEEPS 6

Phoenicia House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms (3 in Winter), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Stone vacation home in the center of the Catskills.

Renting for the Spring and Summer by the week or preferably by the Month. Available first week of March. Please note: max guests in Winter 6-8/ Please inquire.

Magnificent stone and cedar home built in 1918 and lovingly renovated over the last twenty years. Historic feel of the days of boarding houses, timbering hemlocks and quarrying for bluestone. All the stone in the home comes from the creek across the road! Central stone double fireplace (two sided), with a woodstove. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sunroom - which is a perfect breakfast room, with picture window views of the forest and the base of the mountain behind the house. We have seen wild turkeys and deer through this view numerous times. The home has a grand bluestone porch that is wonderful for hanging out in the hammock or on the hanging swing style loveseat. Sounds of the mountain creek and nature all around. The road has a state campground at the end 3 miles away with hiking trails to the surrounding summits with views of the NYC reservoir and the Hudson river. Or a 4 mile drive or bicycle ride into town where you can find one of the best breakfasts you'll ever have at Sweet Sue's or rent a DVD at the video store or get ice cream, etc.

House is perfect for three - four couples or an extended family or friends. We provide firewood for the cool nights, a high speed internet connection with wifi, and a Japanese style soaking tub. If you are looking for a unique mission style and timeless getaway home that reminds one of the peacefulness and times of a century ago, this is your place.

50% deposit due 30 days in advance*

Grand country elegance in the mountains

We lived in this house for a blissful two months. It's one of the most grand yet comfortable retreats I've ever seen. Almost like a mini Mohonk Mountain House of your very own.

The house is set up for both living and entertaining, with multiple bedrooms, two full baths, and even a third half bath tucked away. Cook in the superbly stocked and open chef's kitchen surrounded by your guests. Incredible views abound from every room, and there's plenty of space for privacy. Rustic yet luxurious--there is a soaking tub in the master bath you'll never want to get out of. A three season sunroom makes you feel as if you're eating amongst the trees.

Speaking of trees, you can hike right out of your very own back yard up a mountain. Or walk across the quiet country road and sit by the rushing creek. A few yards down is a pure, deep swimming hole for warm weather. And when it gets cold, start a fire in the fieldstone fireplace, or the wood stove.

Perfect for families with children, there is a rope swing, a big, flat rock for picnics, and tons of runaround room. Parents can watch younger kids from a hammock, swing, or chairs on the fieldstone porch, and older kids can play by themselves for hours.

The owner is a master furniture maker, and his pieces offer both form and function. A long, silky dining room table seats twelve, for instance, and the bed in the master bedroom is a beauty, accompanied by two lovely night tables and a bureau.

We can't wait to return to this majestic setting.

We are a group of women artists that have given ourselves a 'retreat' in the Catskills in this gorgeous house for the past 2 years -- and the best way to describe the place is perfect! We've spent hours on the magnificent stone porch, cooked together in the well-stocked, roomy, well-appointed kitchen and disappeared to a quiet corner of the yard or our rooms for quiet creativity. The piano is great for the musical ones and the river across the street provides hours of wading, paddling and just a bit of a walk down the road, swimming. The owners are easy going, delightful -- towels, linens, everything lovely. Feels like you are staying at a friend's house. Love it.

This is a fabulous home, and the owner was a pleasure to deal with.

The home is easy to find, very clean, well maintained and every amenity needed in a first class vacation home. Comfortable beds, beautiful blankets, soft cotton sheets and towels. Lovingly lived in comfortable furniture to read, talk or watch cable TV. Books, current magazines, and interesting antiques through out the house. Well stocked kitchen equipment and supplies!

What a wonderful surprise to find a piano and guitar, and some sheet music.
We did not have to bring our own guitar!

The way the house was designed with many windows there's always a lovely cool breeze even on the very hottest day.

Sitting on the porch listening to the birds, and the sound of the creek -
It was absolutely bliss for us city dwellers!
