I am a mother to a spunky 13 yr old, a Brooklyn based chef with a catering business and an yoga instructor. Have owned this home since 2003 and have rented it successfully for the last 14yrs. This home was a diamond in the rough when I found it and for 2 years since had been a labor of love to convert it into this beautiful home that I am able to share with travelers from around the world. I feel blessed to own this treasure and provide memorable experiences for our guests and on occasion be able to escape the city with my daughter and enjoy the home for ourselves and our family.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Owner chose Town of Bethel
The house is less than 2 hrs from NY, easy access by Shortline bus from Port Authority to Monticello, great for groups of 8 or less. This house is on 10 acres of private hillside property, overlooking the magnificent Catskills mountains with over the top views. 10 mins to Livingston Manor, 15- 20 mins away from Jeffersonville and Calicoon Winter fun with skiing, sledding, snowboarding. It feels like you've traveled a 1000 miles away and have retreated into a tranquil place with nothing but magnificent nature all around. Bird watch, and gaze at the lovely shimmering Swan Lake, sit on the deck , wrap yourself in the big open skies and enjoy the silence. Private heated pool in the summer, great hiking trails, water recreation activities near by, working farms, farmers markets, antiquing, and Nature, nature, nature.

A treat to be savored.....
we were graciously invited by our friends to come spend a weekend with them at this house they had rented last August.. we had a conflict with another rental we had in fire island, and for a variety of different reasons we ended up here. Was a truly delightful getaway. We have just now completed a reservation for a week this summer and so excited. The experience cannot be really captured with the photos, but the home has a gentle soothing comfort to it and the views are indescribable. The nearby towns have a real country vibe, unlike perhaps some of the more developed towns like Woodstock... small and charming without feeling overrun by tourists. Our saturday night dinner at the 1906 restaurant in Calicoon exceeded all our expectations... we really enjoyed the town in general.
A snowy wintry day here in NYC today, no school, and i had to write about this because i cant wait to see our daughter splashing around for endless hours in the gorgeous pool. The owner/landlord has been really easy to work with. I recommend this wholeheartedly
Beautiful home, stunning views
Anna was a great host - prompt in communications. The home was gorgeous - our only disappointment was we missed pool season by a week! We'll definitely try to visit again!
Cute, Relaxing Place
We were originally supposed to have 7 people and a dog staying 2 nights at Anna's place, but due to unforeseen circumstances - we only had 6 people, no dog and stayed only 1 night. Anna kindly refunded the pet fee and was very helpful in trying to find us a solution leading up to the weekend.
We followed Anna's detailed house instructions especially because it was such a cold weekend upstate - turning on the heat / water and building a hefty fire. We had to bring all the space heaters into the living room / common space because the living room was especially cold - turns out one of the main panels for the space was switched off before we got there. Though it was a little chilly, we had an incredible time in the living room with all the blankets surrounding the fire - it was like camping indoors in a little sleepover. With all the lights conveniently switched off, we were able to see the stars from the huge ceiling to floor windows - so I guess you could say it was a blessing in disguise.
We didn't really venture out much because it was frigid outside and we didn't see the pool - but we'll definitely be back to enjoy this place and its amenities during the warmer seasons.
A chalet style house, this is a truly unique property that was comfortable and very clean. We rented in late November so could not take advantage of the pool but were treated to incredible views through the wall of windows. With the leaves down you could just see the lake below. The owner very accessible and pleasant to work with.
Lovely getaway in the Catskills
The Swan Lake getaway is secluded and serene with an incredible view. We very much enjoyed a relaxing weekend with friends. It is a distance to restaurants so the ideal plan is to cook a nice meal in the well stocked kitchen and eat in. Linens, extra blankets and all kitchen basics were well supplied. The house is clean and bright with natural light.
We LOVED this house
What a home! Completely blown away by the beauty. Art on the walls, big open kitchen to cook in, clean and simple decorations, comfortable beds and enough for our big group. Kitchen is superbly stocked, had a lot of unusual spices as well as cooking oils and an electric crock pot that is perfect for winter stews.
The dogs loved the outdoors, the kids loved the firepit, adults loved the wine infused evenings. Such a perfect getaway from Brooklyn.
Anna is very easy to reach. we arrived later than we had hoped but she was avail and walked us through some basics about the house.
You have our 100% recommendation.
