When you're ready for unbridled luxury, choose Maple Leaf Cottage. Utterly charming and incredibly romantic, Maple Leaf Cottage is storybook perfect in every way. Cozy without being cramped and roomy without being overwhelmingly large, the cottage is like Goldilocks’ bowl of porridge – just right. But with its smart-home technology, there is nothing rustic about this state-of-the-art home. Radiant heat, one-touch lighting, built-in sound systems, Apple TV (with TVs in every room) are just a few of the amenities. From the leather wall tiles in the vestibule crafted by a local artist; to the Catskill Mountain Range mural painted on the hand plastered ceiling; to the locally quarried bluestone (chosen for the fossils they contain) -- each item has been meticulously selected. The end result is magical. Set on 7 acres around a broad green, Maple Leaf is accessible by its own private path and enjoys an expansive private terrace completely obscured from view. With its master bedroom, Indonesian alcove and children's play loft, the cottage can sleep two adults and four children, or 4 adults. Maple Leaf has a half bath off the dining room, which means kids can use the facilities without disturbing their parents. But its sole full bathroom is within the master suite. For this reason, we recommend three couples traveling together, or a couple traveling with in-laws or with a nanny rent Willow Cottage as well. (Well, that and because the twin beds in the loft are child's length mattresses.)
Willow cottage is located on a rock ledge above Maple Cottage and over looking the green. Obscured by dense greenery, Willow is extremely private. The petite cottage has a small sitting room just big enough for two with a gas fireplace, a reading nook and a television. Backed by dense forest, the cottage is exceedingly private. The sleeping area has a daybed, two reading chairs, and a small kitchenette (toaster oven, in wall refrigerator cube, Nespresso machine and drip coffee maker.) The bathroom has a glorious Italian marble shower and vanity. Willow can sleep two adults and one infant or toddler.
For extended families or friends on vacation, rent the entire compound as shown in HomeAway listing 3578561. The full compound is best suited for a combination of 6 adults and 6 children, but can sleep 10 adults.
