Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sitting room, sleeps 2-6

Situated on the legendary Niobe Falls, The Waterfall House is a charming Victorian house at the end of a quiet country lane. Private steps down to these “pride of the Catskills” natural waterfalls make this home unique. Unspoiled Palenville, home of Washington Irving's 'Rip Van Winkle,' is ideally located between Woodstock, Saugerties, Catskill and Hunter. Furnished with country antiques and original art, this vacation rental home has two bedrooms, each with its own full bath plus a den with twin bed convertible chairs. The queen size sofa bed in the living room affords a glorious waterfall view framed by spectacular spring, summer and autumn foliage. The separate dining room seats six. French doors open to a romantic wraparound porch with majestic mountain, river and waterfall views! Enjoy breakfast on our romantic, wraparound porch, or lunch at the Circle W General Store. Stroll over to The Fernwood Restaurant for dinner or drinks.

Especially for Nature Enthusiasts: Discover nearby hiking trails. We provide trail maps and hiking guides. Wildlife is abundant, so bring your camera.

We'll help you plan just the right outdoor adventure hike. In season, tour the neighborhood with bicycles we provide.

Convenient to H.I.T.S.: Our proximity to this major equestrian center makes this home ideal for those participating in, or simply attending the wealth of seasonal events.

Skiers, Take Note!: We are located a mere ten miles from Hunter Mountain!

'ThinkBig!' creator Bob Malkin and former Emmy award winning film editor, author and former professor Barbara Pokras met and married in 1992. After relocating to New York City in 1997, we discovered the Catskills and in a single weekend, bought our first house. We love the proximity to Manhattan, the beauty of the area and the access to nature. Bob loves to hike the mountain with our dog Lucy, and Barbara

spends time gardening, writing for the Woodstock Film Festival, and finding little 'treasures' for The Waterfall House.

Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras purchased this house in 2006

We never dreamed we'd be in the Vacation Rental business, but when we first saw The Waterfall House with its magnificent setting and old perennial gardens, we simply couldn't resist.

Fantastic waterfall and mountain views. Sleep to the sounds of falling water. Most guests tell us our photographs don't do justice to the spectacular setting.

The house, location, and all the amenities were just wonderful. We rented the house for a girls weekend, and to say we enjoyed our time would be a complete understatement. The house very comfortable slept 6 of us, the landscape was beautiful, the falls and the ice amazing. While we did dine out 2 times, we all perferred to cozy up in the house, 5 cooks among us, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to prepare a lovely meal. A bottle of wine, the fireplace going, great friends- thanks so much for making this house available, what a special weekend, in a great location...

What a perfect place for our "Ladies' Getaway." The house is both spacious and cozy. I will cherish the hours we spent sharing our life stories and laughter in front of the beautiful fireplace. Even in winter, the view of the partially frozen falls was breathtaking.

There is something magical about a change of scenery, a change of daily routine that produces a tonic affect on the soul. It was a perfect winter’s retreat - the music of the waterfall, the serenity of the placid snow-blanketed woods, the soothing effect of the half frozen flowing stream over the ancient boulders, the adrenaline activating swing-bridge traversing the stream, the return to yesteryear by watching the Woodstock DVD, indulging in old books that lined the tables and bookshelves, the furor of the Nok Hockey challenges, tea by the transfixing fire.A true family retreat that has us craving another weekend soon! Thank you, Barbara and Bob, for sharing this wonderful treasure with strangers!

From enjoying early AM coffee by the falls, to exploring the banks of the river, to simply lounging around on the deck with our two Great Danes, both of our stays at your lovely, peaceful home have been incredible! The calm of the surrounding natural beauty and soft energy of the falls have been utterly invigorating. We take this experience and meditate on it every time life gets too hectic in the big city.
