About Lucy and Mike Anastasio
My husband and I love our Casa Bella Vista. We purchased our house so that we can have a getaway from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. We love the nature and serenity around this property, we can spot wild life at any time, like deer and turkeys, humming birds and all other beautiful birds. We enjoy sitting under our wisteria pergola with a glass of wine and enjoy our koi pond and the stunning views of the Catskill mountains.
Lucy and Mike Anastasio purchased this House in 2005
Why Lucy and Mike Anastasio chose Preston-Potter Hollow
We know you will fall in love with this little piece of paradise! It is peaceful and romantic, our little country cottage has inspired two couples that stayed with us to get engaged under our romantic pergola!

Great place to unwind
We are you enjoyed our little place.
My stay was beyond anything i had imagined!
First day we arrived and seeing all this property has to offer really took some time, so the fire outside with peace, quiet and seclusion helped to take it all in. Mornings breathing in mountain air is essential to the relaxation we were able to get every moment of our stay. In fact with what we brought with us we didn't need to go into town for anything even though plenty of activities are a short drive away including fruit picking, skiing, hiking, fishing and more! With it's very own Koi Pond in the back it was perfectly picturesque like in a story book. The landscape behind the cabin was open and maintained very professionally. A small one hole golf course made for some interesting putts!! The cabin on the inside had a great blend of modern and rustic design with a bit more rustic. Meticulously clean it sported updated appliances you don't see in many other rentals and it boasted supplies for a variety of things including games and cooking, reading or even some telescope action at night with a clear sky. This property has gone above and beyond citing details into every nook and cranny without going overboard or being distasteful. It is rich in variety, color, comfort and nostalgia. I could not have asked for a better location and better hosts than for Casa Bella Vista and Mike and Lucy. Do not let scarce reviews on VRBO fool you...there have been many who have visited and given high remarks to this absolutely stunning rental. I strongly encourage you to stop searching and get more than you expected and twice what you deserve by staying at this private slice of Eden off the touristy beaten path that is the Catskill area! It is my favorite place i have ever rented and is appropriate for any genre of guest. Mike and Lucy, I don't think you know how much it means to your guests that you are willing to share this beautiful rental and surrounding acreage. That you gave an eye for perfect and are able to help others create such a wonderful, happy and intimate time with each other while staying at your place. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you and look forward to renting again hopefully for a much longer time!!!
Thank you for such a nice review and kind words, we appreciate it and makes all the effort worthwhile.
We too love it up there and since it is rented most of the weekends we do not get to enjoy it very often. :) We have had it on airbnb for 4 years and are new to vrbo.
Thank you again!
The property is amazing! House was super clean and had a lot of nice touches. Koi pond was pretty sweet too. I would love to come back and stay again.
Thank you, we appreciate you taking the time, come back anytime.
Bella Vista indeed!
Beautiful view of the place. Great value for the stay. You really feel in the countryside waking up to the scene of mountains. Place also has up to date tech in the kitchen, thermostat, security cameras outside. Only thing is the Wi-Fi isn't great but options are limited in the countryside and you're supposed to be taking in the nature anyway! Would love to visit again in the spring / summer time hopefully.
Casa Bella Vista was the perfect getaway! Close to the city, but far from the workaday life.
It was our pleasure to host both of you at our country cabin! Come back anytime!
