About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 4-8

Our two-story, three bedroom, 1 1/2 bath house (sleeps four to eight) is available for rent on a weekend or weekly basis for leaf-peeping and Catskills hiking in the fall, skiing Belleayre Mountain (one mile away - inquire about our Ski and Stay discounts), Hunter Mountain (20 miles), Plattekill (12 miles) or Windham (45 min) in the winter (with a fireplace to warm you up at night after a long day on the mountain), a quiet spring retreat to enjoy our huge front deck or patio for barbecues in back, or as a cool, comfortable summer house 3 miles from a beautiful mountain lake with a white sand beach, lifeguards, and boat rentals (Belleayre Beach), and 15 min. from Tubing on the Esopus Creek!

We are just a short drive from Phoenicia, Woodstock, and Margaretville for shopping, dining, and river tubing, and 130 miles from New York City (about two and a half hours from the GW bridge), plus summer concerts in Belleayre every weekend from July Fourth to Labor Day. 1/4 Mile from NYC bus rt

Free Skiing at Belleayre!: If you stay with us anytime during the ski season, you get lots of discounts at nearby Belleayre Mountain that include steep discounts on lift tickets, and free skiing for kids under 12 with accompanying adult! See Belleayre's 'Ski and Stay Discounts' for details. And of course we're a short drive from Plattekill (snow Tubing!), Hunter Mtn, and Windham Mountain as well.

Come check out the Fall Foliage!: The Weather Channel rates the Catskills as the #2 foliage destination in North America, and we're right in the middle of it! Take advantage of our 25% discount on fall rates to come do some leafpeeping from Mid Sept thru the end of October.

Beat the City heat in the Catskills!: Come cool off in the Catskills this summer - we're 3 miles from a beautiful mountain lake with a white sand beach, 2 blocks from a great park with a stream and a rope swing, and we're 10-15 degrees cooler than the sweltering city!

About Colin Young & Niki Naeve

Niki is a singer/actor/massage therapist. Colin is a lighting designer & photographer. We split our time between Brooklyn, NY and the Catskills.

Colin Young & Niki Naeve purchased this house in 2005

Why Colin Young & Niki Naeve chose Catskills

We spent several years vacationing in the area - skiing in the winter, and camping in the summer, before we decided to look around for a more permanent spot. We love our sleepy little village of Fleischmanns. It's a great escape from the big city, and nearby to great skiing, hiking, and lots of other great outdoor activities.

What makes this house unique

We keep the house hypoallergenic for our guests (no smoking or pets), and we've got some great beds (3 of our beds are memory foam!)

clear expectations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over New Years Weekend and went skiing at Belleayre. Belleayre was great we went later on in the morning and the mountain was no where near full capacity. The house instructions were very clear and precise, and strategically placed in the house as well as the detailed email we received from the owners. We thought because there is electric heat it may be cold and brought extra blankets, but with the fire place burning there was no need for the extra blankets. There is stock piles of wood available. I'd recommend slippers. The house had everything we needed. I think the king and twin mattresses were some kind of Tempurpedic. The twins a little firmer. Food wise there were all the small things available like salt, pepper, butter, mayo, ketchup, etc. and all kinds of pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster. We ate at a Mexican place that was about a half mile around the block from the house, it was decent. Goatee Whites was up the block as well and great! Their home description is exactly what you get, although I felt unprepared for the steps. Great first time experience using HomeAway.

Great stay over Labor Day!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay over Labor Day weekend. The house had everything that we needed and more. We do a lot of our cooking and all of the kitchen utensils were available; tons of towels both for use in the house and for swimming at the pool or lake. Super comfortable beds and very pretty rooms with the owner's own photography decorating the walls. High speed Internet, Netflix, board games and more. Excellent lay out in the house for a family with kids or several couples. Lots of space outdoors both on the deck in front of the house and the backyard. Swing and hammock in the backyard kept kids happy while being visible from the kitchen. Thank you

We really enjoyed it, house was so quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy with the experience we had at the Catskill Ski House. We were there in August but we had a wonderful time. The house is very well sound-proofed and despite some creaky stairs everyone was able to move around freely at night and early morning without bothering anyone else. Our 3-year old daughter loved playing in the backyard and at the playground down the street. The owners are very thoughtful, providing plenty of cooking utensils, towels, sheets, as well as consumables like trash bags, toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc. Two of the three bedrooms had in-window AC units and all rooms had fans. The internet was fast and reliable. The owners also went to the trouble of sending us a few books my daughter had left by accident, thanks guys!

Lovely, quiet, spacious

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and spacious home with everything we needed and more. Nice quiet spot. Especially since my husband is currently living in a noisy crowded city, this was a welcome break for him. Would consider returning to this house in future visits.

Lovely, quiet little "home' in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, quiet home in a tiny town in the mountains. I especially appreciated the wood stove - and the VERY clear instructions for how to start a fire, which is something I haven't ever done before. (I enjoyed that so much I actually went through nearly an entire box of wood because I was actually having FUN doing it!). Nice big kitchen, full washer and dryer, lovely warm beds...The market that's a block away from the house is a little sparse, but there is another market just ten minutes' drive away. But you have lots of hiking trails closeby, and an entire street of Victorian houses, so it somehow didn't seem to matter!
