Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

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.

About Sandy

I live in New York City.

Sandy purchased this house in 2003

Why Sandy chose Catskills

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.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect holiday get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights after Christmas in this cozy mountain get-away and it was truly relaxing! Everything we needed was at our fingertips including the warm wood burning stove. Minutes away from Hunter mountain so we enjoyed snow tubing with our little ones and their grandparents. Great hikes in the woods-beautiful property! Everything was comfortable and welcoming! Can't wait to return! Thank you Sandy!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I came up for a long weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The photos honestly do not do the house enough justice. The view from the balcony is fantastic and the house is so cozy. Sandy was very friendly and accommodating and had a full list of great recommendations for nearby restaurants. Peekamoose was our favorite!

Can't say enough good things about this. We can't wait to come back again
