Purling House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Tumblin' Falls House is perched high a'top a cliff overlooking the very beautiful Shinglekill Falls. This circa 1890's Dutch-Victorian has been updated to current lifestyle standards. A newly renovated country kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, with WIFI throughout. We have multilevel decks and a hot tub, overlooking the cascading stream and falls. A country setting with trails, informal gardens, and several natural pools. On the first floor are the dining rooms, kitchen, living room and a full bath. The second floor has 4 guest rooms, two with king beds, two with queens, and a sitting room with a double sofabed. There are two full baths on the second floor.

We are near hiking in Catskill Park, mountain biking,skiing ,and zip lining in Windham & Hunter. Shopping in the nearby towns of Catskill, Woodstock and Hudson, We are also near numerous farms for purchasing local produce. There are many varied and wonderful restaurants in close proximity. There is much to do in the area, but to be honest, we find that most of our guests wander down to the falls with a picnic and a good book,wallow in the pools, then return to barbeque on the deck to complete their day! It is all up to you.

About Linda Curry

My husband Hugh knew about this property before I ever did. He used to speak of it often. It was the summer home of his soccer captain and roommate from College at UPenn. With Andy being an only child, and off to medical school in Brussels the house sat vacant for several years.It became know as the haunted party house and fell into disrepair by local kids who found it to be an interesting hangout. So in 1983 after a bad weekend when kids had broken several windows etc., Andy's Mom decided to sell. Needless to say, I was immediatly dispatched to finally see the house I had heard so much about. For me it was LOVE at first sight.Hugh needed no convincing.

Linda Curry purchased this house in 1983

Why Linda Curry chose Purling

I don't think we need to say why. The Falls, the sounds of nature, the trees, even the ROCKS.That's an inside joke, my husband is something of a rock hound.

What makes this house unique

Being in the midst of all this natural beauty and still just 15 minutes from anything else you may need.

Unique and cozy

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with several friends (10 total) for a birthday celebration a few weeks ago and we had a wonderful time. The house is an old B&B so there is a TON of room for a large group to relax without being on top of one another and the bedrooms are all very comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and the owner is always available via text if you need her. The best parts about the house are the multi-level deck, the expansive yard and, of course, the beautiful waterfall. It was too cold for swimming but we wandered around for several hours and enjoyed the view.

Perfect!! Unbelievable!!!

  • 5 of 5
This incredibly welcoming and homey B&B was the perfect setting for my family's annual gathering. The falls provide hours and hours of fun once you get accustomed to the water. The house and grounds are impeccably clean and we got to enjoy all of the amenities. Gorgeous views, lots to see and do, beautiful decorations, incredibly accommodating, and open... I have nothing but good things to say about Linda and Hue and their lovely home. Thank you so much for having us!

A Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5
The Tumblin' Falls house is a hidden gem in the Catskills. We were six girlfriends staying for a weekend in early June. The house is so charming. The accommodations are comfortable--just like home. The sound of the falls lulled me to sleep at night, and the hot tub was so relaxing. The grounds are lovely.
Linda was always available for any questions.
The house is conveniently located--near Hudson, Olana, The Thomas Cole home, restaurants and shopping.
Wish we could have stayed another day!

The perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Tumblin' Falls in January 2014 on a weekend away from NYC with a group of friends and we all had an absolutely amazing time. The house itself is character filled and homey and set across from the beautiful falls which are visible from most parts of the property. The property has ample space to entertain with loads of decking and a big back yard. Linda the owner was extremely personable and helpful and made sure to take all measures to make our stay the most pleasurable one possible - checking in by email, text and phone calls to make sure I knew where I was going and how to get set up. We were delayed in getting out of the city on Friday night, but when we arrived we were greeted with fairy lights and a steaming hot tub, which we were very happy with. The house has everything you could want, slept 8 of us very comfortably with plenty of room to spare and was within an easy drive to Hunter Mountain skiing. I highly recommend Tumblin' Falls as a relaxing and enjoyable getaway. Thank you Linda!

A Perfect Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
You could feel the warmth as soon as you walk in the door. Absolutely charming home with breathtaking views and cozy decor. The photos do not do this home justice. The rooms are well-decorated, well-maintained and clean.The wood-burning stove offers a cozy and warm welcome upon return from the slopes. The outdoor hot tub was relaxing after a long day of skiing. The Bavarian Manor Restaurant right down the road has delicious food. The hosts, Linda and Hugh are so pleasant. They are always available to answer any and all questions, which was important and made us feel at ease. Our experience here was very enjoyable. We were so sad to leave. Hopefully we can visit again in the future. Thank you so much Linda and Hugh!
