Olivebridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4 maximum)

Aunt's Place is a newly renovated historic home located in the Catskill Park 2hrs from NYC in Olivebridge NY. This home was built to board the laborers who built the Ashokan Reservoir. The renovation was done to preserve some of the original findings in the home during the renovation process. Some of the original findings include primitive art work which are displayed on the living room walls. The home is walking distance from the reservoir where you could enjoy the amenities offered or just relax and enjoy the peacefulness of our small town.

Outstanding rental

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience staying at this rental. The owners made us feel so comfortable and accommodated every need we had.

This also was a very special stay because my family and I have family ties with the owners and we spent many a day there. It was incredible to once again be in that house sharing wonderful memories.

I've already have told many about it and I look forward to my next stay.

Loved our stay at Aunt's Place. Hosts are lovely and very helpful. the house has been lovingly restored and is very comfortable. The location is ideal. It is not far from Woodstock, Phoenicia and Kingston. And you can walk to the magnificent Ashokan Reservoir. the house is better than the photos!

Country Charm Meets Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 2 year old son just spent a week at Aunts Place. The house has been beautifully restored and has everything you need to have a comfortable and relaxing vacation. The location is perfect, centrally located to Woodstock, Phoenicia, New Paltz and Kingston. The Ashokan reservoir is stunning and being a 10 minute walk from it is great! Ray and Allyson were amazing hosts, always available when we needed them but never intrusive. We really loved our time here and hope to get back soon!

lovely catskills getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed here for a long weekend getaway and loved our time at Aunt's Place. It's a charming house, clean, beautifully located and near towns such as Woodstock and Phoenicia as well as close to countless hiking and skiing options. The house was comfortable, spacious, clean and cozy, and had a wonderful kitchen full of all the pots and pans and supplies needed to cook and bake the whole weekend. Ray and Allison were gracious hosts and we were grateful for their flexibility and generosity. Highly recommended.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the ‘Aunts Place’ for July and August. What a perfect getaway from the city, just 2 hours drive. The home is decorated beautifully and absolutely spotless! We truly felt that this was our home, it was so comfortable. The photos are accurate, if anything, the home is better in person than the pictures. There is so much to do in the area, the reservoir is just a short walk away, and great for nightly or early morning walks.

You couldn’t ask for better hosts, Ray and Allyson are simply terrific, always there is you need them, but never intrusive. They really helped to make our summer special. My only hesitation in writing this review is that now everyone will know what a truly terrific place this is, and we will not be able to get a reservation! Thank you Ray & Allyson, for creating this beautiful home and making our summer so special.
