ART/DESIGN CONSCIOUS, MOUNTAIN TOP RETREAT WITH BREATH-TAKING VIEWS!!

Roxbury House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

Every effort has been made to create an environment in which to relax and enjoy the surrounding 15 acres of nature and peacefulness. The house has three bedrooms and two full baths. An open floor plan between the kitchen, dining room and living room make entertaining easy and enjoyable. A TV room upstairs allows for the separation of conversation and entertaining downstairs. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook any gourmet feast.The wrap around deck features spectacular views in every direction, a new Weber gas grill, and an outdoor table are there for an incredible candle-lit evening to dine alfresco.

The upstairs bathroom includes an extra large, beautifully stone-tiled shower, with premium fixtures and an overhead skylight for a truly luxurious experience. The downstairs bathroom has a deep claw-foot tub for a nice long soothing soak. Full size beds come with European down feather beds for extra comfort to ensure a good night's rest. Queen is a Posturpedic pillow top.

The 15 acre property includes natural meadows and woods with extra wide walking paths that meander throughout the property allowing for a leisurely evening stroll or a great place for kids to play hide-n-seek or chase for hours on end. In addition, there is a regulation size croquet field great for any outdoors games, including a natural stone patio and plenty of Adirondack chairs for lounging and relaxing. The grounds have been professionally landscaped and are maintained to provide a natural habitat for native plants and wildlife. The setting is very private, extremely quiet and located on a dead-end road. The few neighboring houses can not to be seen.

My partner and I purchased this house in 1997 as a weekend escape from Manhattan. We have worked hard on it over the years to create a home, a place where we could go to unwind and relax. Due to work we left New York and currently reside in Atlanta. Since it is difficult for us to get to the Catskills we have decided to rent our home for the first time. This is not a typical party house rental, it is and continues to be home for us. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have, and still do. There is a caretaker for the house nearby who looks over the premises and is nearby to handle any needs that may arise.

The 15 acre property includes natural meadows and woods with extra wide walking paths that meander throughout the property allowing for a leisurely evening stroll or a great place for kids to play hide-n-seek or chase for hours on end. In addition, there is a regulation size croquet field great for any outdoors games, including a natural stone patio and plenty of Adirondack chairs for lounging and relaxing.

AMAZING HOME AND PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We are getting married next year in Roxbury and were looking for a home to rent for the wedding week. We were planning on taking a vacation for a week this year so thought we would rent this property to see if we liked it. This house is absolutely amazing! The property is huge, filled with beautiful flower beds, and is very well maintained. It is such a quiet and peaceful place to relax. The home is immaculate, cozy, and has everything you need. The decor is wonderful and makes you feel at home. There is also a well stocked supermarket less than 10 minutes down the road in Margaretville. The owner, Michael could not have been more helpful and organized. He always got right back to us with any questions we had and made the whole renting process a breeze. Needless to say we will be renting this home for our wedding.

AMAZING VIEWS, BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed here with my family, including my infant daughter and my elderly grandmother, and we all, young and old, had a wonderful time. The views of the valley and mountains are worth the trip alone, but the house is what really impressed us. The owners obviously put a lot of time and thought into the decor. Its filled with very stylish, personal touches and it was fun just looking around at all the interesting details and pieces of art. My grandmother was particularly taken with the sculpture in the downstairs bathroom.

The house is very well maintained and very comfortable, with a HUGE kitchen table which is great for groups, two comfy living rooms, and lots of seating outside. The kitchen had everything you would need, including some spices, sugar etc, which was really nice.

The grounds were freshly mowed when we arrived, and we really enjoyed hanging out outside, just looking at the mountains and watching the baby crawl in the grass. We didn't have time to use the croquet lawn, but I can see how it would be lots of fun. It's on the top of our list of things to do when we come back.

The owner is very friendly and easy to deal with. He always responded quickly to my emails, gave very clear directions to the house, and made sure we had info on things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend this place.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND IN THE CATSKILLS!!

  • 5 of 5
Words alone cannot explain the wonderful weekend my family and I had while staying at this log cabin. It was the most relaxation we have had in a long time. The house provided everything you could imagine and more. It was inviting, fun and a memory we will have for a long time. We plan on renting this place again as well as my adult children renting the place for a get away of their own with their friends. We will most definitely recommend this place to our friends and the rest of our family. Thank you for such a great weekend!!!

GREAT WINTER GET-AWAY!

  • 4 of 5
We arrived Friday night (thanks to spot on directions) to a plowed driveway, walkway and a warm house, with the fire already going. The house was spotless, well stocked (especially the kitchen), clean linens, plenty of towels and just a beautiful place overall. The views of the surrounding mountains were incredible. Sledding would have been great except for the two feet of snow! We were 15 minutes from Plattkill Mountain (went Saturday and Sunday) and close enough to Margaretville's Main street for quick coffee runs (there was a coffee maker.) The owner was readily available and answered our emails in a quick and timely fashion. We knew if there were any issues, they would get taken care of (there wasn't any.) Perfect for a family (we are a family of four) or couples sharing. This will definitely be our go to ski rental place.

A PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Not only was the interior of the home visually lovely, comfortable, and with good amenities, but the gardens were spectacular and the views breathtaking. The owner has been helpful all along with emails to guide us. We were there for the occasion of our daughter's wedding at The Roxbury Barn and couldnt have asked for a better home in which to stay. The house was perfect for my husband and myself, our son and daughter in law and our two little grandchildren. I can't recommend this property more highly.

TO-DIE FOR VIEWS AND CLASSY COMFORT!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had; it was heartbreaking to leave. The directions to the house were easy to follow and we found it without any problems. On arrival we found the house to be superclean and were delighted by both the decor (which I'd describe as "artsy-comfy") and the grounds (which are impeccably manicured). There are three bedrooms, but since it was just the two of us, we chose the one downstairs because I like to be close to the kitchen for late-night snacks. ;)

Speaking of the kitchen, please know that it's a COMPLETE kitchen. If you need it, it's available. We loved being at the house so much we cooked and ate nearly all our meals there (we got groceries and wine in Margaretville) and every possible necessary gadget and pan were at the ready. Eating outside on a cool Summer night is just heavenly, and even in the dead of Summer the house remained quite comfortable indoors, even without AC. The cross breeze is lovely.

The bed was comfy and there are oodles of spare blankets if you need them. I adored soaking in the big clawfoot tub. Every evening we enjoyed our "cocktail walk" through the winding paths of the property; gorgeous landscaping as well as rambly natural bits, well-placed trees and sculptures scattered throughout. It's very dreamy.

Mostly we just sat on the deck enjoying staring at the valley and counting bunnies and chipmunks (we also saw a fox, a groundhog and some deer!) but when we did get to Margaretville (adorable and friendly) we loved the sandwiches and gourmet pantry goods/cheeses from The Cheese Barrel. Be sure to get their smoked turkey and cranberry chutney on a croissant. Awesome.

Michael was easy to get in touch with and thoroughly professional and pleasant. We'd recommend staying there to anyone and everyone. We wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Map

Car: necessary

Located 2-1/2 hours from the George Washington Bridge, the house sits on top of a mountain ridge with 15+ mile views within the Watershed Area of New York City. Close by is the Catskill State Park with endless trails for great hiking. The peacefulness and quiet along with the abundant nature and wildlife are the main attractions and beauty of the area. Relax, hike, golf, shop for antiques, or try fly fishing for fresh trout in one of the spring fed mountain streams. There are several quaint small towns nearby to explore, shop and have lunch. A must-see is Opus 40, one man's incredible life earth-work sculpture.
