On the south side of Witten Pond are the historic Lily of the Valley and Witten Gatehouse. On the north side of the pond are the historic Witten Barn with separate Moonhaw Gallery and Tiny House Sauna.

The peace and quietude that is delivered by the surroundings and location has given me the peace and tranquility that my nature and spirit needs to thrive

The area is filled with so much culture. I'm an art collector and music lover and also let me mention fine dinning all available and every season brings it's own magic.

Great getaway weekend in the Catskills!

The property was absolutely majestic and we had an amazing weekend. We loved the house so much we barely ventured into town! We were able to take advantage of the fireplace and tub spa indoors. We had an amazing weekend and look forward to renting the property again in the near future.
