About Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras

What happens when an arts entrepreneur and creator of 'ThinkBig!' gets together with an Emmy award winning film editor? She reads his personal ad (“FUN, 52, RECENT NYC transplant, sexy, successful, attractive arts entrepreneur, child like, sensitive, open, honest and well therapied...”), They meet, marry and move from Santa Monica, CA. to the West Village...until 9/11. Bob was 'ground zero.' It was time to leave. We fell in love with the Catskill region and ended up buying a home! We've been here full time since 2005.

Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras chose Saugerties

Bob is obsessed with water. We are the owners of The Waterfall House, our first vacation rental home set on Niobe Falls. When the cottage down the road became available, we couldn't say no. After a full year of top to bottom renovation, A Stream Side Cottage, L.L.C., is brand new and ready for you!

What makes this cottage unique

Palenville is an unspoiled gem offering the magic of the Catskill Mountains with proximity to Woodstock, Saugerties, Hunter Mountain and the town of Hudson, a

destination for art and antique collectors.

peaceful and restorative

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our lab and chihuahua along for our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was amazing and we weren't ready to go home. The location of the creekside cottage is perfect! Just take a short walk up the creek and there are a series of waterfalls and swimming holes. Our dogs were both loving life and the adventures this place provides. A 5 minute drive around the corner brings you to kaaterskill falls which is gorgeous and breathtaking the entire hike. The cottage is nestled in just the right location so that it appears to be the only building around as you watch the creek from the back deck. We would love to come back and explore this area some more in a different season!

Peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 nights at the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the property. What a great setting! The creek was a little low for fishing, but just right for exploring. My (almost) 17 year old son had a great time heading up to the waterfalls and fishing in the pools. Our lab mix headed straight over the rocks and into the middle of the creek for a drink and to lie down - she loved it. The deck got plenty of use, sitting and listening to the water was a daily past time. The kitchen is great, we made several meals at the house. We got takeout from the Fernwood up the street as well as had dinner there one night. The place is very "rustic" but charming AND the food is spectacular. I highly recomend making time to visit the restaurant. If you're looking to fish, head to Colgate Lake. It's in East Jewett, pretty easy to find (head toward Hunter) and oh so picturesque. Very quiet and serene. All in all we had a great vacation, thank you to Bob and Babs.

Owner's Response: Your comments mean so much to us, as well as to future guests. Our proximity to The Fernwood Restaurant means not having to drive after a day of hiking and relaxing! We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your next visit!

Really Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend at the Streamside cottage. It's unlike any house we've rented. The view of that stream outside is really something to see. We spent hours on the deck every day, took some walks up to the falls and to the restaurant/bar just up the road. The house itself is very cozily decorated and great for hanging out in on a rainy day. The surrounding streets are welcoming if you're a runner. Saugerties is nearby, about a 20 minute drive, with lots of restaurants and shops to visit. This is a great spot.

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Waterfall house and now at the Steamside Cottage and was not disappointed. The cottage was cozy and bright and the view of the stream was good for the mind and soul. We were greeted with a beautiful gift basket and bottle of wine. I am eternally grateful for our host's never ending hospitality and making us feel at home. I will definitely return.

snow birds

  • 4 of 5
The property was clean and well maintained except we had to shovel the snow off the back deck. Owners are very helpful with info.The open floor plan was great for the doggies to run around. View off the back deck was spectacular. Probably amazing in the spring. Great area for hikers. Bed was too soft and couch was fashionable but not cozy. Would most likely stay again! Alot of good restaurants, Bear Cafe a must.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback and have already arranged for additional snow removal on the deck, although most of our guests don't use the outdoor deck in winter. You are, indeed, a hearty soul, and we applaud you for that. For most guests, the view from indoors on a snowy day with the warmth of the fireplace makes for a cozy, romantic setting.
Our queen-size mattress is new, and labelled "firm". We hope you will visit again, and we will be happy to provide you with a less plush mattress pad.
