CATSKILL GETAWAY

2-BEDROOM APARTMENT

Lovely second floor apartment with a private entrance, in a beautiful 2-family home on Kaaterskill Creek is available year-round for long or short stays.

Romantic, private and quiet, this great getaway spot is less than two hours drive from the George Washington bridge. Whether you are swimming, bicycling, seeking nature at it's best or just resting and rejuvenating, you'll enjoy the serenity of our idyllic location. Your own large well equipped eat-in kitchen is the perfect place for morning coffee or tea. (Supplied, of course, along with a variety of wholesome breakfast items including yummy locally baked goods and fresh fruit). This getaway also features two sunny, warm bedrooms where the stream sings you to sleep, a large bathroom with a deep tub for soaking along with wifi and a well stocked vacation library.

This amazing spot has it all:

We're conveniently located between Woodstock / Saugerties (10 miles) and Hunter Mountain (10 miles), right on Kaaterskill Creek.

Enjoy H.I.T.S. Horse Shows in the Sun (8minutes)

Explore Kaaterskill Falls (5 minutes)

Hike the long Path through Kaaterskill Clove (2 minutes walk to the trail head)

Stroll to nearby Michael's or the Fernwood Restaurant for a leisurely world cuisine lunch or dinner. Enjoy home cooked meals with organic and local ingredients at The Circle W Bistro. Or check out the stellar selection of wines at Lower Clove Wines,

Dine in Saugerties (8 miles) and try New World Home Cooking, The Red Onion

Visit Catskill's Storey Farms and Vinnie's farm stand for fresh local foods. (2 miles)

Enjoy Woodstock's shopping, restaurants and fun

No Car Needed!

We're easy to get to via bus. (Drops you off in the center of the Hamlet.) Or take the Amtrak to Hudson and grab a cab across the Rip Van Winkle bridge. (One of the most beautiful trips you'll ever take.) All you'll need is within easy walking distance of the house.

Located in the sleepy hamlet of Palenville, the beauty of our area inspired much of the Hudson River School of Painting.

Let it inspire your perfect vacation or sabbatical.

Your own private space suits 4 people wonderfully. Enjoy the large private backyard, organic veggie and herb garden, patio with outdoor seating and a grill. Rest or read in the shade of a maple in our swinging hammock

We can be flexible. While you have your own space and we completely respect your privacy. We are always welcome conversation and are more than happy to help you guide you to the best the Catskills have to offer.

We're a sleepy hamlet. Well known as America's First Artist Colony. Birthplace of the Hudson River School of Art.

Yes! The Trailways bus drops you off at the Circle W just 2 minutes from the house. We're happy to help you with luggage etc.

We also love to take the Amtrak. It's like a vacation at the beginning of the vacation. Take the train to Hudson and cab across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. This is the most scenic route and inspiration for many fine photographers.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great stay with Jeff and Lea. They are THE NICEST PEOPLE. Lea was super accommodating and helpful, always with a big bright smile :) They are super chill and understanding about everything.

The area is very pretty, Kaaterskill Falls is close-by, we went hiking in the icy and cold, but i still loved it, worth the trip. The house is right in front of the stream and its really nice to hear the water when you wake up in the morning. Very, very comfortable and clean, and the upper part of the house where we were staying has a huge bed and great heating.

We've lived in the Catskills for almost 20 years and love the natural beauty of this region. He owns a family entertainment production company she is a Sustainability Coordinator. We enjoy the adventure of traveling and meeting new people. We love to swim, hike,cook, and ride our bikes, Kaaterskill Clove and Platt Clove being some of our favorite rides. We step out the front door and am 2 minutes from these scenic mountain roads. Lea bakes award winning goodies like cakes and pies and muffins. (she loves to share them with our guests!)

Jeff and Lea Boyer purchased this house in 2009

In all the years we've lived in the Catskills we've never seen anywhere as breathtakingly beautiful as Palenville. We walk out of our door and can swim in the stream, 4 blocks down a country lane is a trail head that leads up an incredible mountain. A few weeks ago we hiked up and were looking down on clouds and across to the Hudson and it was magnificent. The beauty is why we love Palenville.

This home is so convenient! Walk to all you need! It's easy to get to Woodstock, Hunter, Saugerties, Catskill, Hudson. We love to listen to the sound of the stream at night. The gardens are beautiful. It's great to grill in the back yard.

GOOD LOCATION, DIRTY HOME

  • 2 of 5
We were upgraded to the main part of the house which was nice but it was filthy. Dog hair and dust and a tray of moldy food in the oven. It needs a deep cleaning. Once cleaned, it's good space. There is a great yard. Close to tons of fun and they keep a well stocked pantry for use.
