|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Modern, light filled home overlooking a bubbling stream, surrounded by trees and the mountains. Vaulted great room with skylights and loft bedroom. Relax out on the deck in the hammock while the soothing sound of the water lulls you into a meditative bliss… when it gets chilly you can sit inside by the wood stove.
Located in secluded Woodland Valley, just minutes to downtown Phoenicia with shopping, galleries, local restaurants and nearby hiking, fishing and tubing within minutes to Hunter Mountain and Bellayre.

Absolutely loved our stay here! Peace & quiet, complete with a babbling brook located directly behind the property. Imagine yourself relaxing on the hammock (on the deck) with your favorite book and listening to the water outback. It's heaven! The house was super cute, lots of room. If the weather is nice, keep the windows open. It's great to hear the sound of the water out back! We met Alison, she was very nice and fun to chat with - and we loved her dog Harmony! Such a sweetie! She'll be sure to stop by and say hi :) The downtown is located about 5 minutes away (maybe less), which has a small grocery store, a couple of restaurants and shops. Tons of people were checking out this place to go tubing, but we didn't have time. We will when we visit next year! Lots of great hiking nearby. We can't wait to go back!
We had a wonderful weekend at this lovely house. The house is well appointed, light and bright, and plenty comfortable. The setting along the stream was peaceful, although that was also contributed by the fact that the surrounding homes were unoccupied while we were there. Alison was helpful and responsive whenever we had a question. We look forward to returning next summer!
We are a family of 5 with a dog, and everyone loved the house! The house was very neat and clean, and the living room and dining area were perfect for hanging out when we were tired from hiking. We had all our meals on the deck with the stream behind us. The hammock would be in the shade come mid-afternoon and provided the perfect napping spot. Our dog loved running down to the stream whenever he can, and made friends with Allison's uber-friendly pup.
My husband & myself & our 2 grown daughters had just come from a fun, yet hectic stay in NYC. We were ready for some down time for 2 nights and this is where we found it. Alison was just so helpful & sweet & her rental could not have been more inviting. It is so peaceful, in a beautiful wooded area complete with a soothing stream out back. We ate at some amazing restaurants, chilled out with family game nights & did some gorgeous hiking. The home was spotless, well equipped & truly perfect. We will return!
Alison has created a very beautiful, spacious home in a gorgeous setting. Everything about the house is simple, tasteful, warm and welcoming. The setting, perched over a tumbling creek, is a jaw dropper. Alison made everything about getting to the house, being there and leaving streamlined and stress free. If you're looking for a perfect getaway, this is your place thank you, Alison.
We very much enjoyed our short stay at this house. We had a mini-reunion with my brother from western NY so the Catskills were a convenient mid-point (we live in Central Massachusetts). The house was in great shape and the deck overlooking the stream was the epitome of relaxing. The house was also well stocked except for a shortage of regular spoons. :-)
While we were in the area, we hiked to the Kaaterskill Falls which were very impressive. We also took a pleasant walk at the Ashokan Reservoir a short distance away and walked around Woodstock which was within a half-hour drive. We also saw the world's largest kaleidoscope (!) at the Emerson Spa, also close, and got coffee for the drive home at Mama's Boy in downtown Phoenicia.
Overall, just a very, very nice and easy experience. And I love the Homeaway mobile app that was very handy!
