Jack & Anne's farm-house is the perfect Catskills getaway with all the modern amenities we tend to seek these days. It doesn't any get better.
My family arrived on July 2nd, and I'm not going out on a limb when I say we all fell in love with the property the instant we turned down its dirt road. The house itself has all the charm you'd expect from a 19th century build. There's a bedroom on the ground floor with its own bathroom, 3 bedrooms upstairs, 1 of which has a half-bath and skylight that allowed me to stargaze right from bed every single night. The living room is very comfortable and even offers a reading corner, as well as an AppleTV. The kitchen has been beautifully remodeled and features everything you'd need. (We do a lot of cooking!). There's also a full bath/laundry room off of the kitchen.
The yard is spectacular. I spent the vast majority of my time bouncing between the fire pit (which I'm very envious of) and the hot tub. There was also plenty of room for my dog to play on his runner- it's been a week since we got home and he's still barely recovered. There were also a couple of hiking trails off of the property I was able to bring him on.
For our purposes the location itself couldn't have been better. We spent many years renting a home during the off season in East Jewett. Which the farmhouse was mere minutes away from. Colgate Lake, The Last Chance Cheese Shop, North-South Lake, NY Ziplines; everything we wanted was at our finger tips.
Jack & Anne were incredibly kind and accommodating. It was a pleasure for us all to get to meet them. I would certainly recommend this rental to friends, family and anyone to be frank. We will unquestionably try to rent it again next year for the week of the fourth.
Some side notes: The Wifi is strong both inside and out. There was an Amazon echo available to us, which was great. The beds were all very comfortable. And last but not least, there was an abundance of wildlife. Keep your cameras handy!
