Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Tumblin' Falls House is perched high a'top a cliff overlooking the very beautiful Shinglekill Falls. This circa 1890's Dutch-Victorian has been updated to current lifestyle standards. A newly renovated country kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, with WIFI throughout. We have multilevel decks and a hot tub, overlooking the cascading stream and falls. A country setting with trails, informal gardens, and several natural pools. On the first floor are the dining rooms, kitchen, living room and a full bath. The second floor has 4 guest rooms, two with king beds, two with queens, and a sitting room with a double sofabed. There are two full baths on the second floor.

We are near hiking in Catskill Park, mountain biking,skiing ,and zip lining in Windham & Hunter. Shopping in the nearby towns of Catskill, Woodstock and Hudson, We are also near numerous farms for purchasing local produce. There are many varied and wonderful restaurants in close proximity. There is much to do in the area, but to be honest, we find that most of our guests wander down to the falls with a picnic and a good book,wallow in the pools, then return to barbeque on the deck to complete their day! It is all up to you.

About Linda Curry

My husband Hugh knew about this property before I ever did. He used to speak of it often. It was the summer home of his soccer captain and roommate from College at UPenn. With Andy being an only child, and off to medical school in Brussels the house sat vacant for several years.It became know as the haunted party house and fell into disrepair by local kids who found it to be an interesting hangout. So in 1983 after a bad weekend when kids had broken several windows etc., Andy's Mom decided to sell. Needless to say, I was immediatly dispatched to finally see the house I had heard so much about. For me it was LOVE at first sight.Hugh needed no convincing.

Linda Curry purchased this house in 1983

Why Linda Curry chose Catskills

I don't think we need to say why. The Falls, the sounds of nature, the trees, even the ROCKS.That's an inside joke, my husband is something of a rock hound.

What makes this house unique

Being in the midst of all this natural beauty and still just 15 minutes from anything else you may need.

Love this peaceful slice of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here before when it was run by the owners as a B&B, loved it then and loved it now. They take great care to ensure guests feel comfortable and at home. There is a great kitchen for cooking, comfy beds and wonderful views of a private waterfall.

We used the hot tub and swam in the falls, it made my 50th birthday special and I couldn't think of a better place to celebrate.

Highly recommend a stay! Thank you Linda and Hugh.

Comfortable; Beautiful; Breath-taking Views

  • 5 of 5

Linda, Dee, Hugh, and Alex are fantastic people. They were very welcoming when we arrived and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the house and the amazing work they put into making it such a luxurious vacation rental.

The views and trails along the waterfalls were absolutely stunning and the house had more than enough space for our group of 9. Our only complaint was the taste of the tap water; we're a used to the taste of New York City water, so we found the tap water in the house to taste a little metallic. But Linda was so kind to bring us gallons of water to accommodate that request, and everything was prompt and reliable!

We had an incredible weekend here and we recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing couple of days in the mountains. The jacuzzi and fire pit in the living room were my 2 favorite features. The house is perfect as its close enough to neighbors and stores, but far enough removed where you feel at one with nature and your surroundings. We plan on renting again in May as we already miss it!

Best house ever for the best weekend ever

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 friends travelled from NYC to stay at the Tumblin Falls House for a ski trip weekend and it ended up being the best decision ever. The house was amazing and incredibly spacious (the pictures don't even do it justice). The accomodations were great and the owners had everything we could have possibly needed- towels, firewood, extra blankets, fully stocked kitchen with cleaning supplies. All throughout the house there were fun figurines, paintings, photos, movies and books that provided lots of entertainment. There were plenty of activities to do in and around the house, so much so that half of our group didn't even leave the property to ski. The selling point when we were booking the place was the multilevel deck with a hot tub and fire pit. When we needed water added to the hot tub, Linda was quick to come to the house and help out, otherwise we were left unbothered to enjoy ourselves. Everyone on the trip agreed it was the perfect house for a group trip. We hope to come back every season :)

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This eclectically furnished house was perfectly comfortable for all ten of our guests. Great for groups who love to banter into the night, as the seclusion and the sound of the falls offer unique privacy, but the property also offers plenty of opportunity to escape the crowd and find privacy. The falls were a perfect swimming hole to cool off on a hot summer day. We were close to hikes of varying degrees of difficulty. Linda, the owner, was extremely accommodating. Every one left feeling quite at peace.

A welcoming home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The landlady is generous and thoughtful. The house is large and secluded (no neighbors in sight), with lots of rustic character. The view of the falls through the trees from the multi-tiered deck and the sound of the water make for a very relaxing stay. The rooms range from comfortable to luxurious. The kitchen is spacious and well-appointed. And there's a hot tub! Everyone was happy.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay! We rented with 12 friends for a birthday celebration and skiing last weekend and we had a wonderful time. The house is an old B&B so there is tons of room for a large group to relax without being on top of one another and the bedrooms are very comfortable (however, in the adjoining sitting room, the springs on the sofa bed were a bit uncomfortable). The kitchen is fully stocked and the owner are lovely and available via text if you need them. The best parts about the house are the multi-level deck and the hot tub was a great treat (takes about 1-2 hour to warm to temperature if you lower it to 90 overnight, but the owners made us find it ready and hot when we arrived, just perfect!). The place is 20 minutes to Windham and 35 minutes to Hunter so good for the slopes, also. The ground floor can get a little cold, but it has a nice stove with plenty of wood, so we could easily warm the place in a few minutes just by turning the fire on. Only issue was the shower in the attic and on the ground floor being very small and with one of the bathrooms getting clogged on the main floor, we were left with one shower for 12! In terms of actual bathrooms, though, the place has 4 bathrooms, so plenty! It's a beautiful house and we'll certainly be back! Thank you!
