About the property

1000 sq foot loft occupying entire third level, private access- sleeps 2-4

Your perfect winter retreat! Just 15 minutes from Belleayre Mountain and 20 minutes from Hunter for skiing/snowboarding/tubing.

You won't beat this gorgeous, warm and luxurious space, way up in the treetops with views of Catskill Mountains all around. 1000 sq foot romantic retreat with giant designer bathroom featuring walk in steam shower and huge soaker tub. This special hideaway feels secluded but is only 2 minutes walk from all the conveniences of the charming village of Phoenicia. Private access, sleeps 2-4. No car required- bus direct from Port Authority.

Nestled between mountains and the Esopus River, the Loft is an eclectic mix of old world comfort and super modern European luxury. With it's own private stairway access, It occupies the entire third level of our beautiful center hall colonial home, and offers a true spa experience- a huge luxurious bathroom with soaker tub and walk in steam shower. Reclaimed barn wood, wide pine floor boards and mountain views add to the ambiance. All the mod cons with large flat screen tv with movies streamed from Netflix, wi fi, coffee maker and fridge.

Miles of pristine hiking trails await, easily accessible from the Parish Field behind the Village House . Phoenicia is Old World Americana- a hidden gem of a town on the verge of rediscovery. Our village was recently voted one of the Ten Coolest Small Towns in America by Budget Travel Magazine, and for good reason....

The newly revamped Phoenicia Diner on Route 28 is run with flair by ex city slickers looking for a change of pace. Drive 10 minutes to dinner at The Peekamoose for locally sourced produce cooked with love in a beautiful setting. Find something surprising at The Mystery Spot or The Home Store. Monthly art openings at the Arts Upstairs are a blast and classic movies and home grown theater take center stage at the Shandaken Theatrical Society Theater.Take a train ride along the Esopus Creek from the Railway Museum just around the corner. The annual Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice created by the owner of the Loft transforms Phoenicia into a hub for the vocal arts in early August..

Walk five minutes in any direction, and you are in the middle of unbridled wilderness. Wonderful hiking accessible from behind our property, cross country skiing, snow tubing trout fishing, seasonal festivals, you name it!. A haven for lovers, writers, artists, musicians, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's not easy to relax with a 2 1/2 year old and a job that keeps goijg- even when you try to get away- but here at the Phoenicia Loft---it happened! There is something almost magical here. Yes, we loved the spa shower and deep soaker tub (even if it was more of a kiddie pool complete with Elmo and Ernie) but the real peace came from this magnificent view, snow falling, charming town, chimes and smells of the fireplace. My son loved it here and my husband and I rekindled our love. Thank you Rebecca and Kerry for such a wonderful place. We hope to be back again soon!

Absolutely Beautiful and Renewing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose to spend our first wedding anniversary in the loft. It was a perfect decision. We traveled to Phoenicia via the Adirondack Trailways bus and found the trip to be easy and the location perfect! We were able to dine, hike and supremely relax. Thank you for the lovely, thoughtful accommodations. We hope to be back!

A relaxing hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were looking for a getaway from for a few nights, and the spa loft was perfect. It was quiet, well-decorated, and luxurious. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was everything that was advertised, the location was amazing, and we were very happy with our accommodations.

Quaint and relaxing loft in the Catskills

  • 4 of 5

The loft was absolutely beautiful and quite large. The decor was thoughtful and kept with the tranquil theme. There were windows all around with views of the mountains in the distance, which was quite lovely. The king sized bed was super comfy. My favorite part was the bathroom, with the huge tub and steam shower. As we were there to relax, we spent a lot of time in the loft and it was heaven. My only criticism is that the binder with pertinent information was sort of tucked away and we were scrambling to figure out how to turn on the tv/cable and find the Internet password, turn on the air, etc. Also, and this is probably due to the time of year and not a huge deal, there were a number of flies inside, which we were able to shoo out through the windows.

All in all it was the perfect relaxing getaway and we would definitely return and recommend it to friends.

absolutely lovely!!!

  • 5 of 5

As mentioned before the photos do not do justice to how nice this place is. It was literally in town and you are able to walk anywhere from it. We got a chance to meet the owner and he was super nice and accommodating. The place was really clean and decorated beautifully. We stayed here with another couple and the sofa opened up into another bed which was much bigger then appears in the photo. The bathroom looked newly done and was perfect for a relaxing vacation. The view was amazing and it was perfect for a nice weekend away. There is nothing we could really complain about. We are definitely planing on staying here again and highly recommend it for anyone looking to enjoy a peaceful and/ or romantic getaway!

Perfect romantic getaway for couples

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do justice to the comfort and luxury of this loft. It was a perfect way to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Despite there not being enough things to do around the area in early winter (no skiing / crappy weather), this loft made it unnecessary to step out other than to eat at local restaurants. With our own private spa area (steam sauna and deepest bathtub ever!) and free netflix and pandora, we had a completely relaxing weekend at the location.

Phoenicia is a *really* small town, and surprisingly well-equipped to handle hungry tourists. We ate at Brio's twice, and the food was great each time. They are open early and stay open late. The Phoenicia diner is also close enough to walk in good weather. Sweet Sue's was closed during our visit. We did not get a chance to hike the nearby trail due to some running event.

The owner does not stay on the ground floor anymore so be prepared to run into other house guests from the ground floor and the adjoining cottage while you're out. The noise does carry from the cottage when there's loud music playing.

Due to an unfortunate error, the loft was locked from the inside when we reached there and the owner made it to the place in good time to open it for us. Parking is not a problem, although you're likely to risk parking on the roadside right next to a sign that says 'no parking during the night' if you arrive late.
