ROMANTIC AND LUXURIOUS SPA LOFT IN THE TREETOPS.

Phoenicia House Rental Photos and Description

1000 sq foot loft occupying entire third level, private access- sleeps 2-4

You won't beat this gorgeous and luxurious space, way up in the treetops with views of Catskill Mountains all around. 1000 sq foot romantic retreat with giant designer bathroom featuring walk in steam shower and huge soaker tub. This special hideaway feels secluded but is only 2 minutes walk from all the conveniences of the charming village of Phoenicia. Private access, sleeps 2-4. No car required- bus direct from Port Authority.

Nestled between mountains and the Esopus River, the Loft is an eclectic mix of old world comfort and super modern European luxury. With it's own private stairway access, It occupies the entire third level of our beautiful center hall colonial home, and offers a true spa experience- a huge luxurious bathroom with soaker tub, walk in steam shower and radiant heated floors. Reclaimed barn wood, wide pine floor boards and mountain views add to the ambiance. All the mod cons with large flat screen tv with movies streamed from Netflix via Roku, private phone with unlimited long distance, wi fi, coffee maker and fridge.

Miles of pristine hiking trails await, easily accessible from the Parish Field behind the Village House . Phoenicia is Old World Americana- a hidden gem of a town on the verge of rediscovery. Our village was recently voted one of the Ten Coolest Small Towns in America by Budget Travel Magazine, and for good reason....

Stroll to breakfast at Sweet Sue's for the best (and biggest!) pancakes north of the Mississippi, Brios has great wood fired pizzas, and Ricciardella's has the classier cuisine.Mama's Boy cafe and the newly revamped Phoenicia Diner on Route 28 are each run with flair by ex city slickers looking for a change of pace. Drive 10 minutes to dinner at The Peekamoose for locally sourced produce cooked with love in a beautiful setting. Rent a bike at Mike's Bikes or find something surprising at The Mystery Spot or The Home Store. Monthly art openings at the Arts Upstairs are a blast and classic movies and home grown theater take center stage at the Shandaken Theatrical Society Theater.Take a train ride along the Esopus Creek from the Railway Museum just around the corner. The annual Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice created by the owner of the Loft transforms Phoenicia into a hub for the vocal arts in early August..

Walk five minutes in any direction, and you are in the middle of unbridled wilderness. Wonderful hiking accessible from behind our property, cross country skiing, snow tubing trout fishing, seasonal festivals, you name it!. A haven for lovers, writers, artists, musicians, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Guestbook comments from the owner
It's not easy to relax with a 2 1/2 year old and a job that keeps goijg- even when you try to get away- but here at the Phoenicia Loft---it happened! There is something almost magical here. Yes, we loved the spa shower and deep soaker tub (even if it was more of a kiddie pool complete with Elmo and Ernie) but the real peace came from this magnificent view, snow falling, charming town, chimes and smells of the fireplace. My son loved it here and my husband and I rekindled our love. Thank you Rebecca and Kerry for such a wonderful place. We hope to be back again soon!

QUAINT AND RELAXING LOFT IN THE CATSKILLS

  • 4 of 5
The loft was absolutely beautiful and quite large. The decor was thoughtful and kept with the tranquil theme. There were windows all around with views of the mountains in the distance, which was quite lovely. The king sized bed was super comfy. My favorite part was the bathroom, with the huge tub and steam shower. As we were there to relax, we spent a lot of time in the loft and it was heaven. My only criticism is that the binder with pertinent information was sort of tucked away and we were scrambling to figure out how to turn on the tv/cable and find the Internet password, turn on the air, etc. Also, and this is probably due to the time of year and not a huge deal, there were a number of flies inside, which we were able to shoo out through the windows.
All in all it was the perfect relaxing getaway and we would definitely return and recommend it to friends.

ABSOLUTELY LOVELY!!!

  • 5 of 5
As mentioned before the photos do not do justice to how nice this place is. It was literally in town and you are able to walk anywhere from it. We got a chance to meet the owner and he was super nice and accommodating. The place was really clean and decorated beautifully. We stayed here with another couple and the sofa opened up into another bed which was much bigger then appears in the photo. The bathroom looked newly done and was perfect for a relaxing vacation. The view was amazing and it was perfect for a nice weekend away. There is nothing we could really complain about. We are definitely planing on staying here again and highly recommend it for anyone looking to enjoy a peaceful and/ or romantic getaway!

PERFECT ROMANTIC GETAWAY FOR COUPLES

  • 4 of 5
The pictures don't do justice to the comfort and luxury of this loft. It was a perfect way to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Despite there not being enough things to do around the area in early winter (no skiing / crappy weather), this loft made it unnecessary to step out other than to eat at local restaurants. With our own private spa area (steam sauna and deepest bathtub ever!) and free netflix and pandora, we had a completely relaxing weekend at the location.

Phoenicia is a *really* small town, and surprisingly well-equipped to handle hungry tourists. We ate at Brio's twice, and the food was great each time. They are open early and stay open late. The Phoenicia diner is also close enough to walk in good weather. Sweet Sue's was closed during our visit. We did not get a chance to hike the nearby trail due to some running event.

The owner does not stay on the ground floor anymore so be prepared to run into other house guests from the ground floor and the adjoining cottage while you're out. The noise does carry from the cottage when there's loud music playing.

Due to an unfortunate error, the loft was locked from the inside when we reached there and the owner made it to the place in good time to open it for us. Parking is not a problem, although you're likely to risk parking on the roadside right next to a sign that says 'no parking during the night' if you arrive late.

BEAUTIFUL, MODERN, AND SURROUNDED BY NATURE

  • 5 of 5
Like another post mentioned, I was not prepared for this amazing space when I first saw the sweet country house where this loft is located (on the second floor). I had a "wow!" moment, however, when I walked through the door. The beautifully decorated large, modern bathroom has a huge tub and steam shower, perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. The huge windows in both the bathroom and the main loft that look out onto the tops of trees make you feel like you're living in a treehouse, except for the fact that you have all the "grown-up" amenities! The living and sleeping space, which was plenty of space for two adults and two kids, has a large flat screen TV, internet access, a small fridge, microwave, and a coffee pot. While this place very much feels like an escape from the city, it is still located on the main (but quiet) street of Phoenicia, which means you don't have to get in your car to go to the local park (where there is playground equipment and simple hiking trails), hit the restaurants, a few local shops, and of course, go tubing on the river. There are more restaurants, shops, hiking trails, skiing opportunities, a lake, and other activities within a short driving distance. With the huge windows and gorgeous wood and stone detail in this loft, I loved feeling like I was still experiencing the beauty of nature, even when I was inside. It's modern hip convenience and old-fashioned relaxation rolled into one great space.

LOFT APARTMENT IN PHOENICIA, NY

  • 5 of 5
This is a very cool place. The wooden clapboard exterior of the house did not prepare me for the beautiful design of the apartment, reached by outside staircase (although an interior stair accesses the owners' living area). Large windows fill the room with light, and even in late summer there were cool breezes refreshing the space with a view of their spacious backyard, seen from the loft's big windows with a babbling meditation fountain and vista of the mountains,

Wonderful old wooden floors (repurposed) and decorative use of rougher elements combined with gorgeous newer elements to give a organic feeling. The large bed was comfortable as were loveseats and big easy chairs, with a new flat screen TV for lounging....(not sure what other bed options are here...I think one couch pulls out for additional sleeping arrangements?) -- spacious and airy, this space allowed me to really relax and get into a different "space". The star of this remodel is the bathroom, with slate, wood and modern fixtures continuing the elegant-rustic approach. The large walk-in shower with a bench had a pebbled floor (but larger pieces than pebbles) and steam shower/sauna. An interesting touch were the LED colored lights similar to that in a Korean sauna.

The other great "outside" aspect is The outdoor staircase ends in a narrow balcony which has a table and chairs for alfresco coffee drinking....the coffee is provided with your own machine. There was minimal contact with the owners but they attended to every request with grace and friendliness! I loved the feeling of it being "my" apartment and really separate although Kerry and Becks are happy to interact with you!

No breakfast provided, but good options are within two blocks in this serene hamlet--Sweet Sue's is jammed on the weekend but one of the best breakfasts ever! (reviewed in NY Times!)...great hiking opportunities, fishing, tubing in summer, and other outdoor activities. Great atmosphere.

If you want a serene place to stay, you really feel like it's your place. One caveat: they have beautiful kids, enthusiastic and lively, who might be heard from time to time...but out of 3 nights' stay there was only one morning where I was aware of any activity. Loved the fountain's sound outside the window...obviously in colder weather the experience would be slightly different.

I would definitely return for this beautifully designed escape!
