5 Acre Home in the Cradle of the Catskills

  • 5 of 5
Great house! The owner was easy to deal with and everything was exactly as portrayed. I would recommend this property for a quiet, secluded vacation.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
Along with another couple and their kids, my wife and I stayed at Bruce and Valerie's home with our children as well. We wanted to go for the peak fall leaves. And to say the least, we were not disappointed! The home is surrounded by panoramic mountain views, and the leaves in the distance, seemed to glow from the mountainside. Adding to that, was the hot tub, which overlooked the mountains to the east. Not only did we treat ourselves to a glorious sunrise. but also used the hot tub at night -- after the kids were asleep, warmed by the water (and maybe a bit too much wine!), and gazing up at the stars in the nightsky.

The house itself is beautiful, rich wood, and somehow both cozy and spacious at the same time. I agree with one review which said the the photos, which are very good, don't really to the place justice, as it is impossible to capture the true peaceful mood of the house.

Both Bruce and Valerie were very helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do while we were there. We went canoeing one morning, and a hike, that began just on the edge of town on another. We made good use of the mountain bikes as well, stopping at a nearby farm stand to buy fresh eggs and fruit.

There is also plenty of property to explore, and the kids especially had a great time playing hide and seek in the woods!

If you want to have a relaxing time in this part of the world, I can think of no better place than this in which to do it!!! Hopefully, we can return soon.

Owner's Response: Peter -- Thanks for coming back! Yes, the fall leaves are beautiful in this part of the country. Glad you got to use the hot tube this time! As we have only been renting the house for a short time, you are our first return visitor. Thank you for that honor! You are welcome back anytime.

Best,
Bruce and Valerie

Great House...Great Get Away.

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing stay. Awesome views on the decks. Nice big lawn to let the kids romp on. The gas grill was useful (a very nice one at that) to cook the fantastic food from the nearby farmer's markets.

The house set up is done in a way that you never feel on top of each other. When it did rain, the kids had ping pong matches to keep them busy. Nice stereo and TV to watch movies too.

Close enough to town that if you need anything, it's just a short trip by car. Bruce was helpful with info about the area. The house was also very clean and well kept.

Great place.

A Gem in the Catskills!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent an incredible week at Bruce and Valerie's home in Margaretville! Such a feeling of space and solitude. We came with our two young children, who loved it! Having two young children of their own, Bruce and Valerie provided games, a wonderful child's drum set, a scooter, ping pong table -- even a Slip n' Slide!

So much to do...biking, hiking, the Farmer's Market (we followed Bruce's suggestion and got a fresh chicken, and probably the best pesto we've ever tasted) and cooked it on the grill, the nearby Bellayre Lake (Lifeguarded, which is perfect for children!). But through it all, it was nice to come "home" to the house and recover in peace from the daily excitement.

Bruce and Valerie were so helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do. This was, by far, the nicest family vacation we've ever had. We didn't want to leave!!!

Owner's Response: Peter --

We are very happy that your family had a great time at the house. Yes, there is plenty to do, that's for sure! But most of all, we deeply appreciate when people feel the house is like a home away from home. Come back anytime. And when you return, after the kids are fast asleep, you and your wife will be able to enjoy our new, outdoor hot tub under the stars!

Thanks again,
Bruce and Valerie

Amazing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent the most wonderful weekend at the home of Bruce and Valerie! The pictures (which drew us to the place) don't nearly do it justice. Everything in the home is impeccable. The wrap around deck is freshly painted, the linens are beautiful, the upstairs king bed is unbelievably comfortable, as is the downstairs queen (as was reported by our friends who accompanied us)!

On Bruce's recommendation, we bought a fresh chicken at the Farmer's Market (about 2 minutes from the bottom of the mountain)and had a great chicken barbeque at the house -- while watching the sunset over the mountain. We arose early on Sunday to watch the sunrise over the other mountain, while having coffee on the deck. And in the afternoon, you can take a nap on the private are of the deck on some great chez lounges.

Bruce and Valerie are incredible hosts. They gave us suggestions of what to do and where to go. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to take advantage of the house and the area!

We will be back.

i loved the place!

  • 5 of 5
I went with my friends to spend a weekend over there (april 1-3)... the place it's just so beautiful!. The house is so pretty and comfortable!. The kitchen is provided with all things you need. The place is not so far away from town and there is this beautiful waterfall. You would love it. Bruce is always available for you and so kind and respectful. I am thinking on going there with my friends again in another time. You wont regret it! i really recommend this house.
