Overview

Catskills Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Artful, romantic, immaculate and cozy cottage near skiing and hiking

One of two cottages we offer you...GRAB A LITTLE MAGIC at Paint the Night Main House.....

perfect for lovers, twenty feet from a mountain brook, near to swimming in the stream, rivers and lakes, garden on four acres surrounding - all the stuff of lasting memories.

A comfy living room, porch, master bedroom, kitchen, foyer and bathroom with heated floor *more than two people and/or use of second bedroom is plus 30 per person per night (if staying only one night) and unique quotes for longer stays by larger parties.

Our unique and charming second bedroom sleeps three: one queen bed plus a narrow special sleeping alcove shimmery gold for (slim) adults or kids, who will sleep behind sequined golden cafe curtains. See photos.

Sleeps 4 folks in beds, one in the alcove and a big fat couch in the living room for Uncle Harry *we also have a double sized air bed for the living room floor if you prefer.

Having a wedding? A bunch of friends going to a festival on a getaway?

In addition to the main house, we have another beautiful cottage that can also be rented next door.

The Main House is purrrrfect for two couples seeking an intimate get away, only 2.5 miles from Phoenicia's Festival of the Voice, 11 miles from Hunter's music festivals like WDST's Mountain Jam, A Taste of Country Music Festival and The International Celtic Music Festival and a short drive to famous Woodstock.

Hunter Mountain's ski slopes are known far and wide, and we are only 40 minutes from additional skiing at Bellayre or Windham, near myriad hiking trails, cross country skiing and rock climbing and we are across the street from a famous trout stream and the rivers and lakes running through our valley and region are great for swimming for children of all ages. Plus, there is exciting tubing in the Esopus River.

HECK! WE'RE A NATURAL DISNEY WORLD!

The 12 x 20 living room has bamboo flooring, a glass front wood stove for fire gazing, large windows, house plants and a big couch for snuggling. The wraparound front porch has a swing overlooking gardens. Step out the front door with a glass of wine and cozy up with your honey.

Paint the Night Main House offers:

- a front porch with swing and dining room table

- perennial gardens

- abundant fluffy towels and linens

- high speed WiFi

- netflix via your computer or on TV w/ roku

- electric piano

- pick your own bouquets

- swimming nearby in the river or numerous state parks with full amenities

Our fully equipped country eat-in kitchen has most things cooks would want to prepare a feast.

We keep on hand for your convenience basic staples like an excellent selection of organic black and herbal teas, organic coffees, some spices and condiments, cleaning supplies, environmental soaps, shampoo and conditioner... u bring the half and half.

Slow down and enjoy life....

* note: If you find Paint the Night Main House booked, our companion cottage is often available... just ask: Paint the Night Cottage in the Wood.

Bringing Fido? Please note: We are dog friendly : ) but .....NOT dog proof.

Beautiful garden, thoughtful and adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the paint the sky cottage! The garden gives it the feel of an enclave and the cottage was very clean and outfitted with everything we needed! While I wasnt initially sure about the photos-it's quirky in just the right way to make it feel like a true escape. I love traveling, hotels etc and I truly enjoyed the experience of staying at paint the night and hope to return.

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

On my first time renting via HomeAway I was a bit nervous and skeptical about it. I was renting someone's home! I have to say that Mighty has made her place feel homey and welcoming. We rented the whole house and this place is an absolute gem! Nestled in the woods with big windows that we felt one with nature.
