Downsville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 3.5 baths with Mountains, Water View, Sleeps 10

A Little Piece of Heaven in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Leave the noise and traffic behind as you drive approximately two and a half hours north of NYC to the Broken Arrow. Nestled on 50 acres, 1/2 mile off the main road leads you to your private getaway for relaxing and enjoying all that nature has to offer. Whether it's getting together for adventures like hiking, kayaking, skiing (located within a short drive away). Or just sitting on the 12x36 foot covered deck looking at the million dollar view of the Pepacton Reservior, there is something for everyone at the Broken Arrow. Our home is perfect for anyone wanting to relax and unwind, or using the home as a base to explore all that this area has to offer. This home is also great for several couples, family reunions, girls/guys only weekends, spiritual retreats, artists, writers, painters or anyone looking for the peace and quiet of a few days or a few weeks in the crisp mountain air.

Dan, an avid outdoorsman bought this property in 2003. The area has held special meaning to Dan as he came to the Catskills with his father, uncles and cousins since the early 70's to hunt. Fulfilling his lifelong dream of having a home in the Catskills, the cabin was built and finished in November of 2004. Decorating and furnishing the cabin has been lots of fun, and keeps us busy. Dan takes great pride in his craftsmanship; his tables, hunting and fishing trophies are displayed throughout the cabin. I enjoy antiquing with my sister and our treasures can be found throughout our home as well.

Dan & Maureen purchased this house in 2004

This is the quintissential family vacation home. When you leave the city and arrive here surrounded by this natural beauty, the spirit soars! Our home is nestled amongst tall pines and blue skies where eagles soar above and deer and turkey roam freely in front of us. With a six mile view of the Pepacton Reservoir, the view never gets old. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while listening to the symphony offered by our resident songbirds and at night you can gaze into the heavens where each star seems to tell a story of it's own.

Our kitchen is fully equipped for the discerning cook, and our open floor plan is perfect so no one misses out on conversations or laughter and aromas coming from the kitchen or the sound of family gathered around the roaring fire in the living room.

BEAUTIFUL CABIN - GREAT VIEWS.

  • 5 of 5
We had a small reunion with old friends at the cabin. It was the perfect location: private, quiet, beautiful, and everything we needed to cook great meals, enjoy a bottle of wine (or two) on the expansive deck, and sit around the fire pit and talk and moon/star gaze. It's not close to many restaurants/businesses, but the cabin was extremely well stocked; everything you would likely need was provided. Cell phones don't work (any where in the area), but they have a land-line phone, cable, and internet, so the cell outage was no problem (maybe a benefit :).

SISTER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and I rented this cabin for a weekend getaway. It's everything you would dream of - spectacular views, lovely homey furnishings reflecting the mountain experience. Spotlessly clean, fully stocked kitchen and more. Each of us had our own room...and there was an abundance of room for more if a large family wished to have a place for retreat and relaxation. Plenty of amazing sightseeing drives and nearby antique shops and stores where local artists sell their art. The owners, Dan and Maureen are fabulous...friendly and welcoming and only a phone call away. I highly recommended this to others.

HOUSE RIGHT OUT OF A MAGAZINE

  • 5 of 5
Every aspect of this house is gorgeous. The property views are exquisite. The interior design of the house is picture perfect. The owner could not be more helpful and kind. The only thing I would be aware of is the driveway really long and rough, a truck or four wheel drive is a must. Beds are very comfortable. Worked most of the time wish I could of enjoyed the house a little more.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience with us, we love having our guests enjoy our home. The driveway is long and can be rough at the very beginning but we do have a suggestion for four wheel drive vehicles (an absolute must in winter). We purposely built the house far into the property for the seclusion and privacy. Again, thank you for your comments and we hope to have you back again.

NICELY APPOINTED MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home nestled in a beautiful secluded mountainside location above the reservoir. Views of the reservoir and the surrounding mountain range are spectacular from the big screened porch and, if you are here to fish, access to the East Branch, Beaverkill, West Branch (and the Pepacton) are quite convenient. Home is clean with exquisite adirondack-style decorating and nice comfortable furniture and bedding. Dan the owner could not have been more helpful in getting the place booked and providing local helpful advice. I highly recommend this property - particularly to catch and release fishermen!

SNOW HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot begin to describe the amazing time my family and I had at this cabin. It was 8 adults and 4 children and there was more than enough room for all of us. We spent the entire week in the cabin just enjoying the views and snow....and eating! The house was incredibly clean and beautiful and the owners, Dan and Maureen, were very sweet and attentive. This was by far the most relaxing and peaceful vacation we've ever had. Not to mention that our kids finally got the white christmas theyve always wanted. They made a gigantic snowman and played in the snow for hours. Do not hesitate in considering this cabin for your vacation. I can definitely say it is beautiful in the winter and am looking forward to seeing it in other seasons as well . Thank you Dan and Maureen!!! We look forward to staying at your cabin again in the near future. :))

Owner's Response: We were happy to hear that your Christmas vacation at the Broken Arrow was a memorable one. Each season offers it's natural splendor and one is as beautiful as the next, we're glad that Mother Nature cooperated so that the children could enjoy the snow. We welcome you back anytime.

GREAT CABIN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I rented the Broken Arrow for a weekend away with work colleagues. What a great place! Very relaxing, located where everyone could do whatever they wanted... Some stayed in watching movies, some went hiking and fishing, and one even drove into town to get McDonald's (we don't really claim him). There was more than enough heat, a lot of space even for the 9 of us, and everyone exclaimed how comfortable the beds were - even the sleeper sofa! The fireplace was beautiful, the kitchen was open and the dining table was big enough for all of us. We used the huge grill and later the fire pit to stay warm while hanging out. Saturday evening we even looked out to see a black bear lumbering up the driveway! We were so excited that it got scared and ran off before we could even get the cameras out.
Dan was extremely helpful and welcoming to our group. Everyone was pleasantly surprised that a "cabin getaway" could be so luxurious. We had a great time and all dream of someday having a place like Broken Arrow ourselves.
