This home has been in our family since 1982 when my parents bought it as our weekend get-a-way from NYC. I grew up in the Bronx and attended Mt. St. Michael Academy. I also attended nearby SUNY Binghamton University and in summers worked at the fabulous Zoom Flume water park. After graduation I spent a few years in NYC working as a graphic designer and now I am interested in the field massage and aromatherapy.

My favorite sport is ice hockey. I both play and watch. Recently married, so my sports are taking a bit of a back seat.

Stephen Pellicano purchased this house in 1982

In 1982 my family was looking for a peaceful, natural place for weekend get-a-ways. We needed such a place because we were living in a small basement apartment in the Bronx with windows that looked out to nothing but brick walls and the bottoms of side walks.

This property was the complete opposite from where we were living. There was lots of space, forest, a huge backyard and mountain views.

It allowed me to learn about nature, experience life in the country and meet the nice people who grow the fruits and vegetables we eat and the milk we drink.

The fresh air, star gazing, personal space, fall leaves, deep great night sleeps, humming bird watching, animals like deer and turkey who walk down the driveway and through the back yard, trees, farms, thunderstorms, painted canvas sun sets and unlimited possibilities to sit around and do nothing or take a walk down the road to the Bee's Knees Cafe and have home cooked breakfast or lunch.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5
Very nice house, very clean, the owner laid everything out nicely for us to use. The views of the mountains were spectacular. Kinda far from the southern Catskills though.

Great hideaway in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5
Stephen's property is warm, relaxing, and has beautiful views with all the amenities you could want. I stayed there for a weekend with my friends, and we all had a great time. The house is on a hill overlooking the mountains which makes for some awesome sunsets. Everything inside was clean and in working order. The house exceeded my expectations from the listing photos and video. Stephen and his mother were very accommodating when I arrived and left, and all transactions went smoothly. The house is very private, but is still about a half-hour from town and the ski resort where hiking and the Windham Oktoberfest that we went to were. We also enjoyed the grass-fed beef at the Heather Ridge Farm only a mile from the house, but did most of the cooking on the grill at the house. Definitely recommended!

Mountain Retreat

A slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5
A lovely escape from the city. Deer on the grass. Birds in the trees. A comfortable and welcoming home. The quiet of the countryside. The glowing leaves of fall. We would love to have stayed longer.
