We are a local couple, born and raised in the Catskill Mountains. We've owned this property since 1975. We've been renting the cottage for over 20 years, but we decided to use it as a vacation rental in 2012.
We love some of the old 50's features and have left them intact for the fun of it! When we aren't gardening, fishing or riding our bikes, we are traveling in our Airstream travel trailer. Janette loves to paint and you will find some of her landscapes hanging on the walls in the cottage. We like to dine out and we are lucky to have many great restaurants in the general area. Our cottage is perfect for those that like peace and quiet and enjoy the outdoors. We both have a lot of knowledge about the history of the area and hiking and fishing.
The cottage is located on a quiet road. You will wake up to the sound of birds. It is safe to walk or ride your bikes. This is a crime free area. While you will love the serenity, you are not alone here. We live next door and are happy to assist you if you need anything, yet we also believe in respecting each others' privacy. The greatest benefit of our location is that you can easily drive to wonderful restaurants and interesting villages. Among them are Woodstock, Phoenicia, and New Paltz.
