About Michael

I'm an artist decorator, working in NYC: www.artspacenyc.com

This is my get away property and non-stop improvements project. Every year, there is something new in the cottage or on the lake.

Why Michael chose Catskills

Here, you have it all: cosy house, lake, forest, open fields, hiking, walking, running, shopping, eating, drinking and doing nothing under the sky.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sitting here at your refuge watching hundreds and hundreds of fireflies. Brilliant, peaceful and the prospect of staying here for several days is really great. The grounds look absolutely beautiful.

Great Country Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first homeaway experience so I was a little apprehensive about checking out with Michael off the homeaway site. Let me assure you! He's friendly, honest, available when needed, and also hands off for a totally private country retreat experience. (He has a very friendly mind his own business maintenance man that we saw only twice the whole time who came to add firewood to the outside pile). Also full deposit immediately refunded day of checkout.

We are a young family of boys and my kids loved the pond, jumping off the raft (bring life jackets or floaties for kids for extra peace of mind), and kite flying in the fields. There are great woods as well so bring some long pants and bug spray for exploring too. Cottage has a great eat in kitchen, 2 bedrooms for privacy for adults and an open spacious immaculate hardwood loft that goes across the whole length of the cottage, great for indoor games or to put the kids to bed in sleeping bags etc. We also roasted marshmallows in the fire pit and ate right in front of the house on a picnic table. Great peaceful country cottage experience that makes you feel connected to nature and the great outdoors. Walmart and shoprite close by for last minute stuff and civilization. Great and relaxing time for us all! Looking forward to returning!!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the house this past weekend with 5 friends. We had an amazing time and the cottage/property were absolutely perfect. The property is sprawling and gorgeous, with tons of room to explore and hike. The lake was so relaxing and private, perfect just to float or take a ride on the rowboat. And the cottage was the perfect size for 6. Very quiet with a great little fire pit and outdoor eating area. We would return. Thank you!

Very peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice weekend at the house! Follow Michael's directions and you will get into the property ( The driveway is very private and I missed it) The kitchen was very well-equipped and it's nice to have a washer dryer on the premises. Wifi was great. The property and the pond are so pretty! Excellent restaurant in Hurleysville called the pickled owl. Only a five minute drive from the house. Also very accessible to the Bethel Woods Center if you're interested in live music . Great stay!

Great family 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

Paradise in the Catskills is exactly what or time there was like. It's Peaceful and perfect for our family to spend quality time. The house has everything you'll need and whatever else you might need you can get in Walmart 14 minutes away- like charcoal for the grill. The fire pit is great for sitting around, the pond was perfect to cool off and the very large field was perfect for my dog to run!! We look forward to coming back!! And recommend this place to everyone.

Thank you Michael for opening your property to us.

The Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was Amazing!! You drive up this long driveway and it's beautiful. The grass was freshly cut and the country air was refreshing. It was a short drive from the city and well worth it. We enter the house and it was super clean and the windows were open for fresh air. The sheets were clean the dishes were washed. This house is so cozy, there was plenty of room. The kitchen was well supplied ( pots, pans, dishes, cups and utensils )all you have to do is bring the food. Which is so easy since shop rite and Walmart are so close by. The property is so big and so well manicure. There were huge paths trimmed , perfect for hiking. My girls had a blast running through the fields. We were able to see wild turkeys and a deer. My city girls were so amazed. The caretaker George who lives across the street checked in on us the first day to make sure everything was ok ( A very kind man). The private lake is very close by and my family had a Blast !! Swimming , row boating and jumping off the floating dock. The owner Michael was quick to reposed to emails and Super kind. This House is the perfect getaway!!

The only problem here is you don't want to leave.

Thank you Michael for sharing this place and letting my family make so many unforgettable memories.

Hurleyville, New York is a hamlet in the Town of Fallsburg, New York in Sullivan County, New York. The town lies along County Road 104 and was originally developed because it was on the main route between the Villages of Liberty and Monticello, New York. The zip code for Hurleyville is 12747.

Hurleyville is bordered by the Town of Thompson, the Town of Liberty, the hamlet of Loch Sheldrake and the hamlet of South Fallsburg.

Hurleyville was originally settled by William Hurley. The local economy was originally centered on dairy farming, but gradually became part of the Catskills Borscht Belt resort area. During its heyday as a resort Hurleyville was home to many popular summer hotels, bungalow colonies and boarding houses, the biggest and best known was the rather grand Columbia Hotel located atop Columbia Hill.

Hurleyville was a station stop along the New York, Ontario & Western Railway (O&W). Due to mail getting mixed in with that of Hurley, New York, Hurleyville was temporarily renamed "Luzon Station". This name was chosen because the postmaster had a son stationed at Luzon Island in the Philippines.[1] Automobile competition led to abandonment of the O&W in 1957.[2]

There are currently two restaurants in the hamlet named "Frankie and Johnny's Presents Nardi's" and "The Pickled Owl" as well as recently open Makers Club and huge new building for Art Center.

Hurleyville residents are part of the Town of Fallsburg. Students attend Benjamen Coser Elementary School and Fallsburg Central High School. Sullivan County Community College is approximately one mile away in Loch Sheldrake.

Hurleyville is served by the Hurleyville Volunteer Fire Department; law enforcement services are provided by the Fallsburg Police Department. Hurleyville is also home to the Sullivan County Historical Society.
