Welcome to Fox Ridge, a four season vacation rental in Margaretville, NY.

Come in the fall and take in the brilliant color display across the valley or rejuvenate in the spring with new life around you.

Eat in, cook on the grill or try one of the many excellent restaurants. Spend an evening at home playing pool or watching a movie on one of the flat screen TVs. Relax in the hot tub under the stars or roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Swim or kayak in the pond or go hiking on one of the easily accessible trails.

Try your hand at flyfishing on a clean mountain stream or golf at one of the nearby courses Belleayre Mountain offers excellent skiing for the entire family in the winter and outdoor concerts in the summer. All of these activities and more are within minutes of the house.

We live in northern New Jersey and it only takes us 2 hours to get to the house. Margaretville offers a real 'downtown' with nice homes, many shops, and restaurants.

You can feel the tension melt away as you get closer to the house. The feeling of privacy and peace is amazing. As you pull down the long drive the view to the pond and mountains opens up and it's all yours. We have two black labs that seem to live in the pond as soon as we arrive at the property. You can do as little or as much as you like, activities abound. A fire at night in the fire pit with a full moon, a million stars, and the mountains silhouetted and reflected in the pond is one of my favorites.

EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular views, convenience to ski slopes, a beautiful, well-stocked home, a hot tub?!... what more could you ask for? My wife and I came here with two other couples. It was our second visit. We loved it and will definitely be back.

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend at the house. It had everything you could want! The beds were really comfortable and sitting in the hot tub and by the fire was fabulous!

BEYOND ALL EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I rented this house for a winter weekend getaway with two other friends, and we could not have asked for more. The house is gorgeous - it has all the modern amenities you would want, and all the charm of a vacation home without compromising anything. The kitchen was fantastically equipped; the living room area with the fireplace was beautiful and comfortable; the views were unbeatable; the hot tub was the perfect antidote to a long day of snowshoeing. Truly, everything about the house was outstanding, and Mike was a fantastic host, quick to respond to emails and answer questions. We can't wait to go back and hope to make this a seasonal destination. Thank you Mike and Joanne!

GREAT FIND !

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Fox Ridge for the long Columbus Day weekend to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary . . . and we couldn't have chosen a nicer place. The property is fantastic and the view is incredible! The home is modern, yet very warm, inviting, and comfortable, with great amenities. We played pool (excellent table), enjoyed quiet time in front of the great fireplace, and spent endless hours in the ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS hot tub! Mike, the owner, was very easy to do business with and extremely quick to respond to all e-mails. I would highly recommend this rental property to anyone in search of a beautiful, relaxing getaway.

PEACEFUL COUNTRY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Usually vacation rentals never quite live up to one's expectations but Fox Ridge was the opposite - it exceeded ours.
We were wowed by the house and wished we had arranged for a longer stay. Our three adult children, all in serious need of decompression, loved the peacefulness of the setting and the many relaxing amenities including a serene pond, expansive, deck, pool table, good wifi, well appointed kitchen, and as an added bonus for us - superb birdwatching. It was just perfect for our family. We also appreciated the thoughtful decor with interesting artwork and craft objects. We don't usually encounter rental properties that are so well equipped. After staying at Fox Ridge to attend a weekend wedding we would now like to return just to enjoy the house and it's lovely surroundings. Mike, the owner, is easy to deal with - organized and sincerely helpful.

A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I recently returned to the city after spending an entire
Summer month at Fox Ridge. The time flew by, and we would have stayed to see
what must be a magical Autumn. The peace and quiet evokes feelings of
being miles from anywhere, yet the charming town of Margaretville is only
a ten minute drive away.

The hidden driveway opens onto a first view of the beautifully architected house.
Upon entering and going up some stairs you find yourself in a lovely home furnished with
everything one associates with comfort. And, everything works! Fans, AC, TV, kitchen
appliances..everything. Fox Ridge is a well built house. No leaks or broken screens.
Mike has supplied a magnificent telescope with which to see the crevices of the moon or
track the stars. The many windows afford wonderful light and beautiful views. When seated
at the dining room table one can look into the mysterious woods. When on the front deck the
vastness of the view is breathtaking.
Even a rainy day, and we had a few, is never without it's pleasant distractions. A game of pool in the
comfortable furnished basement, or a DVD provided by Mike, our thoughtful host.
We would go back again, no thought required. If you're fortunate enough to be there in the summer,
you'll be spending time at the pond. So, not much reason to go elsewhere for enjoyment. It's all there
at Fox Ridge.
