About Beth

Although I currently live in NYC, I grew up in Nebraska - and still I'm a country girl at heart! My home in Bethel has hosted many holidays and special occasions. The memories created there are so special to me and I hope that you will create your own that you cherish. I'm a real estate agent in NYC, so even professionally, 'home' has a special meaning for me. I think you'll see that if you some spend time at The Waterfall House in Bethel, NY.

Beth purchased this house in 1997

Why Beth chose Bethel

As home of the Woodstock concert in 1969, Bethel has a wonderful cultural environment - a blend of counter cultural influences, traditional country folk, and a New York City second home community. The 'Bethel Woods Center for the Arts' is a short 5 minute drive from the house; 'Monticello Gaming and Raceway' (casino) is 10 minutes away. In addition to these major attractions, there's great horseback riding, hiking trails, skiing, annual festivals, art galleries, theater and great restaurants. Also in close proximity to amazing towns where you can go antiquing, shopping and exploring.

Tranquil Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic. The waterfall is stunning and can be heard through the entire house when the windows are home. The house is very clean and comfortable. It's in a great location to easily walk to the restaurants or take a car ride through the countryside. We enjoyed every second of our stay and hope to be repeat visitors.

Lovely Property - Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This really is an ideal property if you want to find a relaxing and restful haven to unwind.

Beautifully appointed, spotless, clean and extremely comfortable. We spent most of the time either sitting out on the deck or relaxing in the sun room, with the sound of the waterfall providing a wonderful soothing sound track.

Beth and Laura both very easy to deal with and quick in their responses.

As other have done so already I would highly recommend a stay here.

Wonderful Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I recently enjoyed a weekend get away at Beth's home with our "fur baby". The home was quiet enough for a tranquil get away, but still walking distance to town - the best of both worlds! (Although the town is pretty quiet during winter months). We ventured out for hiking since we were lucky enough to have 50 degree weather in New York in February! Beth has a TON of information in the home about the surrounding area with hiking trails, museums and other great activity recommendations!

The home is fully equipped with everything you could need for your stay. Beth & Laura were always quick to respond if we had any questions and it was just a quick and easy drive from NYC. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, quiet yet fun weekend getaway.

Beautiful surroundings & very well-equipped house

  • 4 of 5

The surroundings of this beautiful house, especially the waterfall, are ideal for anyone looking to disconnect and relax. The house is spacious and very-well equipped: from kitchen utensils, cleaning supplies to grill tools, we had everything we needed. Beth was always available and kind to answer any questions we had. The vibe of the house is positive, peaceful and energizing. The directions and instructions for arrival and departure are precise and helpful. Naturally, we didn´t want to leave on our last day!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids (8 and 5) had the good fortune to rent the exquisite Waterfall House this past weekend. The house has the unique quality of being both private and close to town, so it's the best of both worlds. The house itself was inviting, spotless, bright, and warm. The waterfall and grounds are relaxing and beautiful. In addition to the amazing property, Beth was an incredible host. Prompt, friendly, and available at a moment's notice to answer questions and help with any issues. All the details of the trip were very clear, and she provided a wonderful guide for the house and area. We are already looking at the calendar for a return date.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Waterfall House. The house is lovely, well appointed, with a great kitchen, walking distance to a number of restaurants along the lake, yet gives the feel of country seclusion. Waterfall sounds made the back porch our favorite destination for sipping morning coffee or our evening cocktail. We also appreciated all the convenience sundries on hand that can be annoying to have forgotten when you rent a home. Much appreciated Beth. Given our reason for the trip was to attend concerts at Bethel Woods could not have been more perfect location.
