Halls Mills is part of a sprawling estate in the picturesque, quiet town of Claryville, about 2 hrs. from the GWB. This spacious, recently renovated farmhouse, has 4 bedrooms and 2 new bathrooms, and is ready to welcome guests for memorable, country escapes. In 2010, a local couple launched Neversink Farm, an organic farm producing vegetables, honey, a huge swath of cut flowers, and chickens (fresh eggs, anyone?) in the fields behind the barn. The farmers, Conor and Kate, are delighted to give tours of their operation, but please note: renters are not permitted to wander the farm (for liability and safety reasons), without their presence. Learn more about the organic farm at www.neversinkfarm.com. There is a farm store on site which sells fresh organic produce grown on the premises and eggs from free range chickens raised organically.
Beyond the meadows are the scenic, rocky waters of the Neversink River, which usually has a few deeper spots, used as swimming holes. Picture yourself heading to the river in the morning to fish for native brook trout on this private stretch of water or simply enjoying your lunch at the picnic table among the trees or bonfire pit riverside. (This area is adjacent to land recently purchased by a conservation group, and open to fishing, so there is a nice generous amount of river available to you.)
Magnificent road and mountain biking begins right outside your door. Cycle the traffic free byways of the Catskill State Forest Preserve. Road biking loops of 10-100 miles of varying difficulty offer extraordinary scenery along rivers, past reservoirs, and through the high forest, including Slide Mountain, the highest summit in the Park.
The downstairs is comprised of a living room with stone fireplace and separate, spacious, sun-drenched dining room with bay window. The country kitchen, with walk-in pantry/mudroom, is large and has undergone a complete facelift.
Upstairs the 4 bedrooms and 2 sparkling new bathrooms are tasteful, comfortable places for repose, and for deep sleep, dreaming about the next day’s adventures.
Down the road, a 100 yards walk or so, is the White House rental for larger families or gatherings looking for a second house.
Comfortable renovated farmhouse on a country estate with access to the Neversink River, great hiking and an organic farm - perfect for making memories with friends and family.
Overall experience was wonderful. Just loved it. Will rent again and maybe move in :)
Old but modernized, very comfortable farmhouse with completely modern kitchen and bathrooms (2). The main attraction is the surroundings--first of all the private river access, a short walk across fields. In early summer the river is cool, not cold, shallow enough for children but with deep spots, hot rocks to sun on, shaded bank area with picnic table. Visit the organic farm on the same property (between house and river). Though the house is just off the main road, it is usually quite--always at night, when you can sit on the porch and watch the moonrise over the ridge opposite.
I have been here before for up to a month, stayed only a few days in 2014.
Great house to share for a family reunion. Light, airy, uncluttered, like that it was simply furnished, big rooms, comfy beds, easy kitchen. Easy access to the river.
