About the property

This 2 Bedroom House Is The Perfect Size For A Family Of 2 To 5 People.

When you think of the perfect getaway, Catskill Country Rental house is it. You have the convenience of having everything at your fingertips that is just a walk away or a very short drive away. There is something for everyone; golfing, fishing, live summer concerts, skiing, hiking, swimming, exercising, biking, and more. The diversity of restaurants is sure to peak your interest; Swiss, Mexican, American, Italian and more, all within an 8 mile radius.

Catskill Country Rental house has been newly renovated with warm, cozy colors which gives you the feeling of home away from home. In the winter, you can enjoy the warmth of a pellet stove that is very user friendly. In the summer, you can enjoy starting a fire in the fire pit in the back of the house. Inside the house the kitchen and dining area are combined, so your family will be able to enjoy spending time, all together in one room which we feel is an important point to consider when modern life seems to mean so much less time for family life, and family leisure time. There are two bedrooms; one queen bed and one full bed. The bathroom has been renovated with beautiful ceramic tiles. The shower is large enough for two.

Whether you are getting away to spend quality time with your family or you are looking for a romantic weekend together, you have found the right place to stay.

About Linda Pesa

I grew up in the Catskills, traveled for many years and eventually settled back in the area I grew up. There are truly no mountains as beautiful as the Catskill Mountains. The fresh air, the beautiful night sky, filled with stars and the beauty that surrounds you makes you realize just how lucky you are to be living in such an amazing place. As a visitor, you must be aware; once you experience the Catskill Mountains, you will probably want to settle here. My husband and I have been living in Fleischmanns for 22 years and love the area.

Linda Pesa purchased this house in 2009

Good value for your dollars...

  • 3 of 5

Our stay in the house was comfortable, the basics were provided for. Our check in instructions were wrong; the key was not where we were told it would be. As a result we had 30 minutes to wonder how we were going to gain entry. Linda's voicemail box was full, so I texted. Both of us were in need of a bathroom after a long car ride. My husband got annoyed and started looking around in the front porch area and found the key in a different spot. I would recommend a key pad type lock be installed, it would save confusion like we experienced.

The heat was adequate and the kitchen average in terms of equipment, be advised there is no dishwasher. However, there is only parking for one car. If you plan on arriving with 2 vehicles, as we almost did, you would be out of luck.

The master bed (the only one we used) was comfortable. A little more attention could be paid to the bathroom. There was only one (almost done) roll of toilet paper, one washcloth and no hand towels. I phoned the owner and left a message. We got a call back about 30 minutes later and Linda's husband brought some more over. The quality of the bath towels was somewhat lacking, they were old and mismatched. But, they did the job of drying one off and there were many to choose from. The bathroom was a tight squeeze, fortunately my husband and I are thin people. Someone over 200 pounds might have difficulty in that room.

If you like to read, be forewarned that there are no bright lamps anywhere. The dark colors on the walls are attractive but I had a hard time finding a suitable place to curl up with the Sunday paper. Finally, I don't recall seeing a smoke detector in the home.

Our security deposit was refunded in whole quite quickly. In all, the house was adequate, fine for a place to sleep after a day skiing but not a great place to spend more time than that.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our rental house. As owners of a rental property, we are always trying to give our guests the best experience possible. We try our best to provide everything a guest would need, like toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, etc. However, it is in the contract that toiletries are the responsibility of the guests and we have learned that toiletries are normally a personal preference. Yes, even toilet paper! Thank you for letting us know that there is a need for more hand towels. I will make sure that there are more for our future guests. In terms of matching towels, most guests like the mismatching experience of towels, sheets etc. It kind of goes along with the worry free experience of staying in the country. There are greater things to worry about in life! We apologize for the key experience. We have thought about installing a key pad type lock, but again, dismissed the thought because people that are getting away from the hustle and bustle of technology and city life, love the fact that the old fashioned lock and key are still out there. Glad your security deposit came quickly. We try our best. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Constructive criticism can only make our rental house a better place to stay for our future guests.

Idyllic Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Linda's home was picture perfect for the type of vacation I was looking for - quiet getway in a cozy cabin, just a short drive from great hiking in the Catskills. The house and yard were spotless for our arrival and Linda was only a phone call away, if we were to have any issues or questions. The kitchen was spacious and great for cooking, at leisure, and all of the furnishings in the house were warm and welcoming. I would definitely request to rent at Linda's next time I visit the Catskills!

A very clean, comfortable and quiet place to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and well furnished. Beds were hard to get out of because they were so comfortable. Enjoyed the upper deck off of the master bedroom. Owner is very accommodating and kind. Had to come home otherwise we would still be there relaxing and unwinding?

A great place for a quiet weekend

  • 5 of 5

My brother and our 3 kids met up at Linda's place in the Fleischmanns. It was simple, quiet, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed some live music at the local Mexican restaurant and pizza in nearby Margaretville. We walked to the neighborhood park with a playground and skipped rocks in the creek. Plattekill Ski/Bike Park was great too. Bellayre Ski area is just up the hill and you can mountain bike on their cross-country and downhill trails if you want to. It would be 5-10 minutes to get there for skiing in the winter.

Linda provided her phone number in case we had any needs and was responsive on email.

Internet access was iffy -- it is shared with the next door house and when they left it seemed to go off. Cell service was spotty with Verizon and AT&T. The only (very minor) change I would make is to add another light to the living room. It was a bit dim after dark. But that's really minor, overall the place was great.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. This is a beautiful place for a family with kids. So sorry about the internet problem. There was a huge outage problem in Albany the weekend you were here, and almost everyone was experiencing problems with the internet and phone service. Thank you for the tip in adding another light to the living room. I will get right on it. Linda

A very cute home and beautiful place. We always felt warmth and support from Linda. There is a beautiful mountain lake with well serviced beach in few minutes drive (Pine Hill). Hudson River in Kingston is really great. A huge high bridge you should watch for sure.

Linda, thank you very much!
