CHARMING & PRIVATE CATSKILL MOUNTAIN VILLA NEAR TROUT STREAM

Roscoe House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4.25 baths, sleeps 11+

Imagine the romance of Edwardian summer days and nights spent in a big, character-rich house in the Catskills. A house that’s just a short amble to the famous Beaverkill River, offering world class trout fishing, plus gorgeous countryside where you can cross-country ski, drive, bike or hike. We are already booked through September 6, but we are taking reservations for fall and winter.

The Yellow House rests on several landscaped acres that include a vine-covered dining pergola with gas grill, plus gardens with flowers, vegetables, and culinary herbs. The bedrooms and parlors are roomy, with high ceilings and abundant original woodwork and paneling. Our 4000-square-feet include 5/6 bedrooms -- 4 with private baths entered directly from the room. Accommodations also include 3 parlors, dining room with 9-ft. trestle table, butler's pantry, laundry/mud room, porch overlooking the garden, and a gourmet kitchen with 2 sinks, 8-burner stove and 3 ovens.

Each time you come back after a rural adventure, you’ll love walking or driving up our stone-walled driveway to your own bodacious getaway in a romantic and beautiful setting. It’s an old-house-lover’s dream, with period details and some sturdy antiques, but comfortable and welcoming -- not a bit stuffy. Like quiet and privacy? You will especially love choosing among many nooks to get away to when you want to be alone!

AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely STUNNING! Beautiful Victorian style home that has gorgeous wood burning stoves and fireplaces. Many bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Super, super clean. Everything you need is there. Sandy is so helpful and responds quickly to any phone calls or emails. It was a wonderful stay at the Yellow House and I certainly hope to return! I HIGHLY recommend staying here - it is exactly as pictured and was a great experience! :)

WONDERFUL HOUSE, GREAT FOR LARGE PARTIES, INCL. W KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed a long weekend in the Yellow House with a large group of friends/families (9 adults and 8 small children 1-8yrs in total). It is, by far, the best and thoughtfully stocked and furnished place we've been to. Everything from a (more than) fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms (w towels, soap etc) and comfortable beds (with sufficient space in all rooms for the kids' air mattresses), to shelves full of DVDs and kids books. The yard is gorgeous and huge; plenty of space for roaming (we saw several hummingbirds!, deer and rabbits; there are some art objects placed in the lawn, which lend it a museum-like feel while being fully kid-proof) and for the kids to play ball. There's a camp fire space, a cute patio for BBQing, a porch to shelter from sun or rain. The house itself is old but very well maintained and clean. Lots of charm, yet little that the kids could break or trip over etc. A hide-and-seekers paradise.
Within 5 min walking there is a large pebble (no sand) beach at the river. The current is strong in some places, but adults and proficient kids can still swim there. Smaller kids absolutely need floaties and a close watch. But the first couple of feet from the beach there's barely a current, so there's still plenty of water for the little ones to play in. It's an idyllic spot, with the river, green mountains and blue (weather permitting of course) sky.
One thing to keep in mind is that there is very little to do in terms of going out/shopping etc near the house. The nearest supermarket is 12 mi. away. Two miles from the house, though, there's a very cute little park with petting zoo and play ground; definitely worth a visit with kids. (From the house, return towards the highway; go straight in 'town'; second left after the fire house; park is on your right a block up).
Sandy, the owner, was very accommodating throughout the process. We never met in person, but everything went very smoothly via email and phone.

Owner's Response: It makes us very happy to learn our guests have enjoyed their stay, as reported either in an on-line review such as this lovely (oh, so appreciated!) contribution, or as recorded in our guest book. We give lots of thought and effort to making and keeping our house clean, comfortable, well supplied, inviting and interesting for guests. Our own friends and families have joined Phil and me for countless memorable gatherings, and we love affording others the same enjoyment! Thanks so much to our early August guests for their comments, and for their considerate and respectful treatment of our house and grounds.

WONDERFUL HOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of friends who stayed at the Yellow House for a creative retreat. We loved this house! It was warm and artfully decorated, with antiques and artwork but nothing frilly (thank goodness!). The bedrooms were very comfortable, with plenty of bathrooms. We especially loved the wood stoves and kept them going almost continuously. The owners left a very generous stock of firewood for our use. The kitchen and pantry were well equipped and we loved eating meals at the very large table. There was plenty of room to spread out throughout the house. Lots of great nooks and crannies! We enjoyed walking down to the river - lovely setting! Sandy was always very responsive and great to work with!

NANDA S

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this house to celebrate my daughter's first birthday. We all had a very very good time. We as a group had been renting houses in VRBO for the past 10 years and we have never been in a house that is so very well maintained and extremely well equipped.
We arrived at the house pretty late in the night (after 9 PM) on a typical snow winter night. And they have made sure the house was warm for our arrival and the fire places were up and running. I have never stayed in a house where the owner pays this much attention to detail. And we had a very pleasant stay in the house.
This house is perfect for all occasions and all seasons

COZY BIRTHDAY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I escaped the busy city life to this lovely home to celebrate my 30th birthday. The home was a knockout...large open spaces with small nooks tucked between them...we used all three parlors for different things-one parlor became our hangout spot to warm up near the stove pipe, another room became our reading/work room, and the parlor with the books became our sit and chat space. The large kitchen was so much fun to cook in with all of my friends and the communal dining tale fit us perfectly to share our delicious home cooked meals together. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. The space in its entirety had great energy and warmth. We could tell the previous renters shared a lot of love and made many wonderful memories here....we were really close to squatting and turning it into our commune....thanks Sandy for your attentiveness and for sharing your beautiful yellow house with us. Anyone would be lucky to spend time here...

A BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a group of nine friends for New Years weekend and I can't recommend this house strongly enough. The yellow house is a little slice of heaven — it's huge but cozy, beautifully renovated and maintained, and nestled in a gorgeous river valley about 3 hrs from NYC.

Sandra was very helpful and accommodating in setting up our stay, and once we arrived everything was perfect. The house easily handles 10 adults and 2 toddlers, with just about everybody getting a spacious private bedroom and bathroom. There's plenty of space to hang out in the kitchen or one of the living rooms and to serve dinner for 10-12 in the dining room.

The setting is beautiful, and we imagine that there's plenty to explore in the spring, summer and fall (this house is so comfy that once we lit the woodburning stoves we barely left to explore the area).

The Yellow House is a gem — it's a perfect getaway from the city for a big family or group.
