A Gem in the Catskills!

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!!!

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!
Bruce and Valerie
