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!
