SECLUDED AND CHARMING COUNTRY HOUSE

Glen Spey House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom house on 5 private acres with fruit trees, meadows and woods

Charming and spacious cedar country house on 5 very private acres with glorious flower gardens, fruit trees, meadows, and woods. Near the house is a pristine and serene reservoir for kyaking, rafting or fishing.

There is a long driveway leading to the house so you can enjoy peace and quiet without seeing any other houses or neighbors all week.

The rental would be perfect as an artist's retreat (2 people can work in the large artist's studio), or for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, birdwatchers, or anyone that just wants to enjoy country life for a while.

The house is also near the Kadampa Buddhist meditation center, the Forestburgh Playhouse, and the Bethel Woods concert series.

The area is famous for its white water rafting on the Delaware River 10 minutes from the house. There are also nearby hiking trails, lakes, rivers, wine tasting, outdoor concerts, and antique stores.

Watch the wildlife, bunnies, wild turkeys and bluebirds. We have no traditional TV but have wi-fi, lots of movies and a DVD player. This is a great way to unplug and get back to nature!

It is accessible by train and bus but you will need a car to buy provisions and sightsee.

The house stays very cool in the summer. This is not the city!

NO PETS, NO SMOKING

PRIVATE AND SERENE

My mom and my three young children really enjoyed our stay for the week. We loved being in nature and my son and I took daily walks into the woods behind the house. The deer, humming birds and wonderful natural setting really made the vacation special.

A PERFECT GETAWAY FOR 2

  • 5 of 5
Autumn came and having failed to make it out of town during the moist disgust of an NYC August my wife and I were deep in dread, trapped and anxious to get away from the city for a week of R&R&R (rest, relaxation, reboot). We determined that mountain country nature was the remedy so we inventoried the kinds of things we hoped and wished our escape might be like and when we searched the web for Catskills vacation rental and this house popped up. We immediately knew it was the one for us, and it was. We stayed for a week and didn't want to leave. I mean that, no kidding.

The house is wonderfully inviting and it sits on a big stake of land surrounded by trees, and it's down and back enough from the main road so there is ample privacy and calm. The town of Point Jervis is close by so stocking up on provisions was no chore. It's a neat little town. There's a cool throw back bowling alley, and yes, we bowled. We both like to kayak and hike and there is plenty of that going on. And now I like bird watching and that's because as you sit and have your morning coffee and look out these big windows in the kitchen dining area birds of all stripes are fluttering up and around the house. Such variety I've never seen before.

The leaves were peaking so the hikes we took were fantastic. There are a ton of spots to explore. We took a leisurely kayak run on the Delaware River and it was perfect and all lit up with the changing foliage. Just thrilling. It was so beautiful and relaxing on that water we took a detour for one more kayak run before we departed.

At night both of us would sit on the deck, drink wine, chit and chat about future schemes, and listen to all that nature happening around us. Very romantic. Our trip was a perfect escape from the big city.

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My husband, another couple & I rented this house last summer. We loved the big kitchen and cooked a lot. It also has large windows so it was great to watch the birds in the morning--especially the humming birds. The yard and gardens were spacious and also really pretty. I loved all the blooming flowers. My husband spent a lot of time fishing (and we all spent a lot of time grilling the fish!)—the river was awesome and a short walk from the house. We also hiked a couple of nearby trails along the river. It rained one day so we spent it antiquing and wine tasting. The beds were really comfortable and there were 2 lovely bathrooms, so we didn't have to share. We liked it so much that we are considering renting again this summer.
