Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq ft
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Anytime of the year, the house is available for two day, weekly or monthly stays. It sits on a tranquil, 27 acre former farm and is conveniently located just six miles from both Hunter and Windham mountains. Your country escape for the skier, golfer, trout fishermen or growing family awaits you. There are fields, walking trails, mountain views and an abundance of wildlife for one to see on the property. If skiing is your thing, this rental is perfect for the entire family.

Outside of the ski season, there are three nearby golf courses so all golfers, bring your clubs! If you simply prefer to unwind, the over-sized country porch is perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests. Fun filled days transition to late afternoons and early evening on the beautiful porch, enjoying a cocktail and great food. Wildlife such as turkey, deer, rabbits and ducks can be appreciated by all. The rambling brook makes for a great night's sleep or for a carefree nap stream side or on the porch. Visit during the winter months and enjoy sitting around the wood stove with that hot cup of chocolate. This makes for a perfect break from a cold winter's day and fun in the snow.

The house is an 1856 post and beam farmhouse typical of the era. It has been fully restored with special attention to period details.

The first floor consists of a mud room with an oak bench and brick flooring, a lovely country kitchen, a large living room with wood burning stove, a comfortably sized dining room and a small additional bedroom. Additionally, a washer / dryer room, for those extended stays, is located right off the first floor bathroom. Wide plank floors throughout and the wood beams in the house have been fully exposed for that pure colonial look. The bathroom has a large, claw foot tub from the early 20th century that has been restored. It makes for that perfect, hot bath with some rich, sea salts to relax and rejuvenate one's inner self.

The second floor consists of three bedrooms that overlook the apple trees and fields of the property. A second floor bathroom is a must and this one has been nicely renovated. The house sleeps eight comfortably so it can be shared by one large family or two smaller families.

About Sofia Sinaheris Rivera

My husband and I purchased this property in 2001. We have done a complete renovation over the last nine years. We paid special detail to maintaining it's colonial look with exposed beams, claw foot tub, antique farmhouse sink and a large country porch.

Why Sofia Sinaheris Rivera chose Jewett

We chose the area of the Northern Catskills because of it's close proximity to World Class skiing at Hunter and Windham mountains. It's only 2.5 hours from NYC which is ideal for weekend trips. We especially liked the house and property because it sits on the East Kill Creek which is a trout fed stream. It has many swimming holes to swim in. There are three golf courses within 10 minutes. There are an abundance of hiking trails in and around the property. There are great restaurants and bars serving a variety of foods including Italian, French, Mexican and a micro brewery in Windham. There is even a local vineyard which has weekend wine tasting available.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Fresh water swimming on the property. Local skiing is within 10 minutes. Rolling fields, mountain views and walking / hiking trails are plentiful. Sipping a morning or early afternoon coffee on the front porch overlooking the fields and stream. Barbecuing on the porch at night while under the stars. Star gazing and viewing the Milky Way galaxy.

Beautifully decorated farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations in many ways. Home was truly a home away from home. There was ample space for our brood of 10 to relax on the large porch, hike around the expansive property, frolick in the beautiful stream adjacent to the property, and enjoy a night time fire pit while gazing at the stars! The location was also ideal for nearby golfing and some amazing ziplining. Would highly recommend to any of my friends.

A great escape

  • 5 of 5

Wanting to break away from the city, we found a great escape for the family.

Some highlights of the house included: a huge yard to run around in and play soccer, a creek right in front of the house for exploring and splashing, plenty of room for 2 families (we brought an aerobed and fit 9), the layout of the house flows perfectly.

After grilling dinner we built a bonfire and stargazed (no light pollution); in the morning we hiked the property up the wooded trail. It was great to be isolated yet close to the ski villages.

We chose the area to be close to the incredible zipline at Hunter (a must do). We also discovered a couple of great restaurants and went to mini golf & a driving range in the afternoon.

We plan to return in the winter for skiing.

Very enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house the week of “4th of July”. The house was comfortable, at good condition and very clean. The location is amazing and we passed many relaxing hours by the stream while our children were playing soccer on the grass or bicycling.

The surrounding area offers a lot of activities. We played golf a couple of times at the Christman's Windham mountain golf course which has a fantastic layout and we spend a whole day at the Zoom Flume waterpark which is only 20 minutes away from the house. Windham is only 5 min away and offers a variety of restaurants and an amazing dinner

Pretty old farmhouse on a lovely property

  • 4 of 5

I stayed with friends for 3 nights. The house has a lot of character with many features that looked original. The location was perfect for some hiking in the area. The one thing I suggest is that the furniture could use a refresh. Overall, we enjoyed the stay.
