Cute Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent two nights here-we wanted to get out of the city for Halloween. We enjoyed the beautiful fall scene through out the property and the starry nights. The house was clean, the back/side yard had ample space for our children (2 &5 )to run around/play. They enjoyed raking/collecting leafs and making big piles to jump in :) There is a nice big fire pit which we used. Theres good heat through out the house for cold nights.

The house has no wifi/great if you want to disconnect and our (verizon) cell phone coverage was spotty at best-but there is a landline.

Barbara was accomodating and bill was very helpful.

Cute. Cozy.cottage.

Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!

If you are looking for a place where you can unplug and totally relax this is the place for you. The house is comfortable has all the amenities necessary and is so charming, each room seems to lead to another room. Our favorite place was the porch, each morning we would turn up the tunes (Barbara has an awesome selection of Buddha Bar CD's) and allow the sounds to travel outside while we enjoyed the final days of summer. Thank you Barbara for opening your place to us!

Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Barbara's beautiful mountain home. Comfortable, spacious, inviting, warm, easy to find your way and make it your own for a few days are just a few words that we would use to describe our stay. Barbara was an absolute pleasure to deal with. helpful, kind, responsive, available, and informative with all the different questions asked. The location was near to many great sites and hiking trails. We enjoyed lazier mornings of coffee and outdoors as we really just slowed down and enjoyed the company of each other. A true gem in all ways, shapes, and sizes!

Lovely house.

  • 4 of 5

The house is a beautiful, cosy old farmhouse in a very pretty spot. It was very comfortable for 4 adults and two kids. There is a loft bed for kids but getting up there is trickier than you might imagine so not great for younger kids. Ours are 11 and did ok. The information we got from Barbara was very comprehensive and she was very helpful. It's quite isolated so we brought most of our food with us and glad we did. The kids took snowboarding lessons at Hunter mountain, about 45 minutes away. Bellaryre is closer but smaller. We spent most of our time at the house as it was so very cosy so I can't say much about restaurants in the area. We would like to go back in the summer and maybe we'll get out a bit more. It's a very pretty spot, peaceful and comfortable. Very good value for money overall.

Wonderful, we love it!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a gift for my daughter that turn fifteen and wanted to see the snow falling and feel by herself all that cabin in the woods lifestyle. As magic, it snow the afternoon we arrived.

The house was so cozy and beautiful that she and her sister could not be happier. There was a small bed in a loft in the first floor where they spent a lot of time playing, they love that place. We also get to warm the house with the fireplace and make smores in the firepit eventhough the temperature was 0 that day. We also get to cook an bake a cake and some cookies because the kitchen is really complete with everything you can need. I could keep numbering all the things we love but I will resume by telling you that we loved every single moment and eveeything in the house. Bill the property manager gave us excellent customer service and was always available for us. I am for sure returning to this house because it was wonderful, we love it.

A great place for hikers, bikers, skiers, artists, writers, poets, cooks, bakers or folks wanting to get away for peaceful solitude, or plan a fun vacation with friends. Near all warm weather activities and close to all Catskills ski resorts for snowy winter stays. 15mi. to Woodstock, Phoenicia and many small towns in between!

Other Activities: Rock climbing, skiing, tubing and spas

Golf: Several 4 star rated courses in the area

Stone Dock ; Wiltwyck ; Alapaha ; New Paltz ; Nevele Grande ; Apple Greens ; Dinsmore

Ski: Belleayre and Hunter are both wonderful day trips from the house. Nestled just about half way in between the two locations, either destination works -or- trying both is fun for mixing things up. Enjoy the scenic drive in the morning and relaxing at the end of the day coming to the full kitchen for fun dinners with friends~
