Historic, waterfront ~1920 craftsman fishing lodge on the Woodland Valley Stream! Woodland Valley Lodge brings you the charm of a 100 year old lodge + all modern conveniences and over 200 feet of stream frontage on Woodland Valley stream.
Woodland Valley is the center of the Catskills. Just outside of beautiful Phoenicia. The naturalist John Burroughs said of Woodland Valley in 'Heart of the Southern Catskills', “Of all the retreats I have found amid the Catskills, there is no other that possesses quite so many charms for me as this valley…” This valley is indeed the best of the Catskills, and the Woodland Valley Lodge is the best of the Valley.
Staying in the Lodge, you'll soak in the history, but with all modern conveniences (as needed). The Lodge was built in the early part of the 20th century by a department store owner from New York City as a seasonal fishing and hunting lodge. It has been tenderly cared for and updated while preserving the craftsman wood ceiling beams, the stone fireplace and lovely oak and douglas fir wood floors.
The ideal family trip home - a plethora of Catskills activities are no further than the door. Walk out the door and down to the Woodland Valley Stream to fly fish for trout in the crystal waters, or float the small rapids. Cross country ski or snowshoe on plentiful state lands nearby. Hike or snowshoe the Slide mountain trail head that begins a few miles down Woodland Valley Road. Drive 25 minutes to ski Hunter or Belleayre Mountains.
If you need a town break, walk or drive to Phoenicia to shop or to enjoy the wonderful restaurants like famed Sweet Sue's or Brio's. The 4 mile walk into town is the perfect appetite builder. A tip - have the family meet you and drive you back after breakfast or lunch! You can also drive to Phoenicia Diner or Peekamoose for an incredible meal.
If you just need a personal retreat just stay inside and explore the Lodge. You many choose to hunker down on a leather sofa by the stone fireplace in the main lodge to relax and read. Your partner may choose to put their feet up in the Catskill dining room and maybe spy a bear or deer during a reading break, all the while listening to the rushing waters of the stream below or to their iPod selections linked to our music system. Your best friend may choose to rest in one of the four bedrooms looking out the window and surfing the high speed wireless, or move to the Study to catch a Blu Ray on our TV or sit and play a game with the kids. If cooking is your retreat, you'll love the well stocked kitchen, the Wolf range and charming, long French country sink.
We have set up the four bedrooms with comfort in mind. Three bedrooms have steel bed frames and queen memory foam mattresses, while the fourth bedroom has 4 twin beds also with memory foam mattresses. More interior photos are coming when the interior painting is complete. You'll sleep wonderfully on these beds nestled in the down comforters and cotton sheets as you hear the Woodland Valley Stream's waters on the other side of the screens.
The Woodland Valley Lodge will be your home. Come and stay a while. Look down onto the Woodland Valley Stream, and embrace the raw nature. Take a stroll outside on the stream's rocky beach. Walk in the steps of Burroughs, and understand his love for the Woodland Valley.
FOR UPDATED CALENDAR AND ONLINE CREDIT CARD BOOKING - GO TO LODGE WEB SITE:
Credit card booking is simpler for renters. Card is only charged later after we agree on final pricing. Deposit is never charged to credit card unless there is damage to the Lodge!
We rented properties in the Catskills for years and then fell in love with the Woodland Valley since it has the best combination of incredible natural beauty as well as being near small town Phoenicia when you need culture. When we found this house, it was done. It is heaven - two hours from NYC and on Burroughs' famed Woodland Valley Stream!
The Lodge is themed on the US National Parks. You'll find framed antique postcards in every room and National Park themed Pendleton blankets on the beds.
We've set up the home for convenience and comfort. Towels are varying shades so its easy to remember yours on the hooks in the morning. Coffee mugs are letter themed to keep them straight on a cool morning or afternoon. The Lodge is home and better since you're here in the wilderness.
Driving Day trips abound:
Shoppers can drive off for some cultural therapy while you relax, fish, swim, hike and have blast!
- NYC is 2 hours
- Woodbury Common Outlets are 1 hour 20 minutes
- Rhinebeck quaint town and shopping is under an hour
For a rainy day, maybe save Cooperstown (baseball hall of fame) which is a 2 hour drive.
