Relax and unwind to the peaceful sound of water in this beautiful post and beam home in a spectacular natural setting.
Secluded yet close to town, located on a dirt road tucked behind the Pantherkill stream, this spacious sunlit home has mountain views from every window and is ringed by forest and streams.
With an open floor plan living area and country kitchen/dining area, the house lends itself beautifully to entertaining, with a large deck perfect for sunning, dining al fresco or stargazing. The three charmingly decorated bedrooms (including a huge master bedroom with vaulted ceiling), dramatic wooden beams, and a crackling fire in the woodstove create a wonderfully warm feeling for hosting friends and family.
Located less than 5 minutes from the shops and restaurants of the village of Phoenicia, and 15 minutes to Woodstock and major ski areas, the house is walking distance from fishing streams, biking, hiking trails and kayaking/tubing on the famous Esopus Creek. Less than 2.5 hours by car from Manhattan, it's a world apart.

I live in New York City.
Sandy purchased this House in 2003
Why Sandy chose Phoenicia
I chose to buy in this location for its spectacular natural beauty. The area is gorgeous, with mountains and streams and clear mountain air, and there are tons of things to do (or one can do nothing). It's far enough from the city to feel as though you're in a different world but close enough to be easily accessible. And the people are artsy and unpretentious yet sophisticated.
What makes this House unique
The house is warm and inviting; luxurious yet homey and rustic all at the same time. There is a small stream next to the house with a rushing brook at the end of it. The large sunny lawn is perfect for outdoor activities and it's surrounded by forest and mountain views. The range of activities available within a very short distance is enormous. Fishing, hiking, biking, skiing/snowboarding, kayaking, tubing, etc.; art, antiques, theatre, dance, indoor and outdoor concerts, restaurants, great local organic farms, cooking out, stargazing...the opportunities are endless.

The house was beautiful and spacious. We had a great time.
Phoenicia is a quaint, friendly town. There is great food and awesome shopping. I bought my first Christmas gift at Melange on Main Street.
Lovely peaceful getaway
We had a wonderful vacation here this summer. The house is charmingly decorated, well stocked and well set up. It felt like a comfortable and welcoming home rather than a generic vacation rental and the property around it is just beautiful. Sandy was responsive to all our needs and a pleasure to rent from. Highly recommend!
Sandy was great! We love the location and the antiques! I would go back for sure
Beautiful, cosy and characterful cabin in the woods
We stayed here over New Year and found it the perfect winter getaway. The cabin itself is well designed, warm, spacious and yet still cosy. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and tidy on arrival. Sandy was a very helpful host and very lovely to work with. The house has lovely touches of character which make it feel like a home from home rather than a 'vanilla' rental. It was very snowy whilst we were here and the kids loved sledging down the hill - though do note with snow you would want 4WD for access.
Do try the Phoenicia Diner just down the road - definitely the best diner we've been to in the USA!
One small point - on the Homeaway system the house shows as being actually in the town of Phoenicia - in fact it's a couple of miles away.
Thanks so much, Chris. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and we would love to welcome you back anytime. One quick note: while not located in the village of Phoenicia, the house is in Woodland Valley, which is one of its neighborhoods...just wanted to clarify for people who are unfamiliar with the area. Thanks again for your kind words!
We had a wonderful time at the house, it was beautiful inside and out. We were given detailed and helpful information that came in very handy during our stay. Everything was handled with so much professionalism and quickly from beginning to end. We absolutely loved it and would stay here again!
Great house and owner!
My family has had the pleasure of staying in this house during each of the last two ski seasons, and we have had wonderful experiences. The house itself is very charming. In an area where some houses can be a bit "rustic," this house is quite beautiful with all of the wood beams. The kitchen has every single item of need. The beds are comfortable, and there is ample room to spread out. The location is terrific. So close to the town of Phoenicia with several good dining options (including our favorite - The Phoenicia Diner). It is also very close to Belleayre, Hunter and Windham, so all are accessible. It is also a short drive to Woodstock. On top of it all, the owner Sandy is truly a gem. She is extremely responsive to all questions and requests and really is such a pleasure. I recommend her and her house to anyone seeking a great getaway in the beautiful Catskills.
David - it is a pleasure hosting you and your family. Thank you so much for your kind words!
