Walton Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
Credit card payments accepted.
The famous and maintained Finger Lakes Trail System runs right up to our Farm (website for trail conference is fltconference.org).
===45 MINUTES FROM WALTON TO EXCELLENT WINTER DOWNHILL SKIING SUCH AS BELLAYRE MOUNTAIN IN THE NORTHERN CATSKILLS=====
Come and enjoy our Catskill Mountain retreat. Private, extremely quiet, 38 acre farm with 1800's farmhouse, chicken coup, and huge post and beam barn. The property has a spring fed swimming pond (with boat) and a large year round stream with concrete bridge over to barn.
If art is your thing, then sit on the bridge overlooking our year round running stream and paint our barn.
One can fish either in our private stocked pond, stream, public reservoir with provided row boat provided (Cannonsville), or on the world famous Delaware River (our pond row boat can be easily transported for use on the river if desired).
The property also has separate campsites, one at the top of our mountain boasting a panoramic view of the Catskill mountains and valley below. Campouts work great at these spots.
Best of all, our farm borders New York City's Cannonsville Reservoir offering (with our own right of way) thousands of additional acres to hike or hunt.
====NOTE: THE ENTIRE FARM WILL BE FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE. NOBODY ELSE WILL BE ON THE PROPERTY WHILE YOU ARE THERE=====
Trophy hunting is available at our farm or on the DEP property
The reservoir itself is walking distance from the house. This reservoir offers excellent fishing, either from the shore or from our farm's reserved row boat for your personal use. The Cannonsville Reservoir is also open to sailing, canoing, and Kayaking.
At night, sit by our fire pit, look up at the stars, and you’ll think you’re in a planetarium. On Spring nights, our pond comes alive with the serene sound of peepers which will lull you to sleep.
The farm is truly a beautiful place to stay. Bird watching and wildlife photography is also a favorite past time at the Farm with Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, Wild Turkeys, deer, and other wildlife regularly seen.
Inside the home, make yourself comfortable with a game room (pool and ping pong table), stocked modern kitchen, wood stove, screened in porch, four bedrooms (large master bedroom on the main floor), open living room with exposed wooden hand hewn beams, as well as knotty pine throughout.
The house comes with its own chicken coup and you can enjoy fresh eggs every day (don't worry about feeding or caring for the chickens-they have a self waterer and self feeder).
Cozy up to the wood fire and read a book or sip some hot chocolate as you watch the snow falling gently on the fields.
Although the farm is isolated, there is free wireless internet, free coast to coast long distance telephone, as well as 2 satellite televisions (50 inch HDTV in master bedroom). We also have one VCR and two DVD players (one hooked to the 50 inch HDTV).
The house also comes with a water cooler (hot and cold) as well as a Keurig Coffee Maker (pods sold at our local supermarket). There is also a Farberware coffee percolator as well as a drip coffee maker for your use.

About William A. Haas
My wife and I bought this property in 2007 as a weekend vacation spot. We have been enjoying it ever since. We have improved greatly on the property and friends have told us what a great place the farm would be to rent. We decided then to share our vacation spot with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house and property with us. You did a great job on the house. We had a lot of fun playing pool in the evenings and roasting marshmallows. So many stars at night out here. We enjoyed the chickens-especially the rooster who chased us quite a bit. The boys had fun going out in the boat. They didn't catch any fish but enjoyed the beautiful scenery and saw a couple of beavers. I took many nature pictures with my camera. Our kids even saw a snake shedding its skin. We hiked, rode bikes, and played badmitten. It's so peaceful and relaxing out here. We also enjoyed watching the swallows, especially the one who had a nest on the porch. On our last day, she hatched her eggs and we saw the little ones. We hope to come back to your beautiful Dryden Brook Farm. Thank you again.
