Being a NYC resident for many years, I have been going up to the Catskills for many years for some R&R, and fun, of course! The area has only improved in more restaurants and services popping up every where. But still preserving that lack of pressure and natural beauty of the area. I now have a mini-farm with chickens, ducks, geese, bees and turkeys...my extensive garden gives fresh delicious fruits and veggies most of the year...aaahhh sanity!
Claire purchased this cottage in 2003
The area offers a lot "for the money"...the traffic issue of the Hamptons, etc is not an issue. the people are easy going, and just plain nice. you can enjoy local veggies, fruits, eggs, honey, etc...swimming and fishing are fantastic, and there's beautiful golf 10 minutes and a half hour away that is awesome. Villa Roma also offers racquetball, and tennis. Bethel Woods Center for the Arts offers a bit of musical culture in a gorgeous new complex which includes a museum and a great calendar of well known acts, such as Sting, Santana, and the NY Philharmonic.
I bike, hike, fish, , swim, kayak at the lake or down the Delaware River, farm & garden, take scenic drives, play tennis, two beautiful golf courses, one 10 minutes away (French woods) the other a hlf hour away (Villa Roma)horseback ride, ski, read, stare at views that never disappoint, cook, and eat at great restaurants...and taste the local wine.
