About Kelly

Victor, Flynn and basset hound Mason and I live in Washington Heights in Manhattan. We are both actors who have about 20 Law and Order episodes between us! Victor also teaches acting and I am a sales agent with Halstead Properties on the UWS. I moved to NYC from the Mountains of TN and when I was searching for a property I was drawn to the Catskill Mountains.

Kelly purchased this house in 2005

Why Kelly chose Catskills

We first got a tiny cabin in the woods in this charming village of Phoenicia. We then upgraded to this lovely house so that we could share it family and friends. We love renting our out our home and have found that 90% of our guests are repeat visitors!

We love being in this area as it an all season home. Plenty to do in Summer and Winter. I find that I end up hanging out just enjoying the solitude that the mountains bring.

What makes this house unique

Our screened in porch and goldfish pond are two of my most favorite things about this house. In addition there is plenty of room for family and friends to come and visit.

The fireplace in a winter snow is spectacular as you can look out on the falling snow through our huge windows. Our home is slowly being upgraded and we like to keep our guests in mind when doing our updating. We recently updated the kitchen and are in the process of designing a new lower level to incorporate a great playroom for kids and adults!!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really nice time in this home. It is clean, fully stocked and the decor is very nice, yet homey and comfortable. It has a nice yard for kids to run around in and is private, yet close to attractions, restaurants and the charming town of Phoenicia. This is a relaxing place with enough room for a family to spread out. The owner was responsive and accommodating -- I recommend it and would go back again.

Great place and host

  • 5 of 5

The house was big, comfy, quiet, well decorated, on beautiful property, and a quick ride to town. The host was very responsive throughout our stay. The screened in porch was wonderful.

Perfect for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This summer rental was perfect for our family vacation. It was centrally located to many activities and the supermarket in Boiceville was a plus. The house was spacious and quite comfortable for 6 adults and 5 children, ages 1-7. The kitchen was well equipped, lines were plentiful, as well as household supplies. My grandchildren particularly enjoyed catching frogs and snakes in the pond. Also, any problem that arose or questions of concern were answered by Kelly promptly.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large party of adults & children and the house accommodated us well. We had a great time; the decks are really beautiful as is the view from nearly every window. The fireplace is awesome as is the screen porch.

The house is in good condition and has pretty much everything you need.

We would definitely love to come back!

Lovely Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely mountain home in a beautiful secluded area in the Catskills that is actually very accessible and close to many beautiful sights and charming towns. We were part of a large group of 10 adults and one infant and there were beds (including a crib) and rooms for all. The owner, Kelly, was wonderful in maintaining communication and in immediately addressing a plumbing issue early on in our stay. The house is great and was ideal for our group. The two top floors have air conditioning and are very spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom is a real delight with a large bed, a fabulous bathroom and private deck. The two rooms in the basement do not have any air conditioning units, but fans were available and the weather was cool enough that this was not a problem. The kitchen is quite nice and very well equipped for any kind of cooking. We used it almost every night as we hosted dinners for our family and friends, as well as our future in-laws. We were in the area for our daughter's wedding in nearby West Shokan and this home served us very well as our base for wedding preparations, group dinners, and long conversations as we got to know our future in-laws. We are thankful to Kelly and her family for sharing their lovely home with us. Our week in Mountain House is one that will be remembered forever.
