Plenty to do, swimming, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing -- you name it -- or sit inside by the fire, or under the stars in the Outdoor Hot Tub and do nothing at all! 220 channel Satellite Flatscreen TV, DVD, Stereo, a great reading library, Wireless Broadband, gas bbq -- ping pong table, an incredible swing set for the kids, a 14' outdoor trampoline -- and of course a hammock for you.
We started off as renters, but we loved the place so much, we bought it! You will love it too...
Weekly and monthly rentals available as well.
This home is the perfect vessel to channel the peace and tranquility I think most people are looking to feel when they go away. I treated myself to a solo vacation while my daughter was away at camp for the first time and within that week I was able to reset and come back to my family rejuvenated. The home is just beautiful, and the pictures on this website are nice, but the real thing is outstanding. I am very happy that Bruce and Valerie have opened their home to share with this site. As far as I am concerned, it is the only home on this site. I am just sorry that I cannot get away this year to enjoy it again.
I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely home last October. It was exactly what I wanted. Every amenity has been taken care of and it offers complete seclusion. I would not hesitate to recommend the peaceful retreat in the Catskills to anyone. The best part was lounging in the hot tub as the deer strolled through the meadow below and also checking out the stars at night.
Great house! The owner was easy to deal with and everything was exactly as portrayed. I would recommend this property for a quiet, secluded vacation.
Along with another couple and their kids, my wife and I stayed at Bruce and Valerie's home with our children as well. We wanted to go for the peak fall leaves. And to say the least, we were not disappointed! The home is surrounded by panoramic mountain views, and the leaves in the distance, seemed to glow from the mountainside. Adding to that, was the hot tub, which overlooked the mountains to the east. Not only did we treat ourselves to a glorious sunrise. but also used the hot tub at night -- after the kids were asleep, warmed by the water (and maybe a bit too much wine!), and gazing up at the stars in the nightsky.
The house itself is beautiful, rich wood, and somehow both cozy and spacious at the same time. I agree with one review which said the the photos, which are very good, don't really to the place justice, as it is impossible to capture the true peaceful mood of the house.
Both Bruce and Valerie were very helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do while we were there. We went canoeing one morning, and a hike, that began just on the edge of town on another. We made good use of the mountain bikes as well, stopping at a nearby farm stand to buy fresh eggs and fruit.
There is also plenty of property to explore, and the kids especially had a great time playing hide and seek in the woods!
If you want to have a relaxing time in this part of the world, I can think of no better place than this in which to do it!!! Hopefully, we can return soon.
We had a very relaxing stay. Awesome views on the decks. Nice big lawn to let the kids romp on. The gas grill was useful (a very nice one at that) to cook the fantastic food from the nearby farmer's markets.
The house set up is done in a way that you never feel on top of each other. When it did rain, the kids had ping pong matches to keep them busy. Nice stereo and TV to watch movies too.
Close enough to town that if you need anything, it's just a short trip by car. Bruce was helpful with info about the area. The house was also very clean and well kept.
We just spent an incredible week at Bruce and Valerie's home in Margaretville! Such a feeling of space and solitude. We came with our two young children, who loved it! Having two young children of their own, Bruce and Valerie provided games, a wonderful child's drum set, a scooter, ping pong table -- even a Slip n' Slide!
So much to do...biking, hiking, the Farmer's Market (we followed Bruce's suggestion and got a fresh chicken, and probably the best pesto we've ever tasted) and cooked it on the grill, the nearby Bellayre Lake (Lifeguarded, which is perfect for children!). But through it all, it was nice to come "home" to the house and recover in peace from the daily excitement.
Bruce and Valerie were so helpful in suggesting places to go and things to do. This was, by far, the nicest family vacation we've ever had. We didn't want to leave!!!
Margaretville is the heart of the 'Cradle of the Catskills', located on the edge of Catskill Park. Nearby swimming, hiking, canoeing, art galleries, music festivals, skiing abound. Also, sitting by the fire doing nothing, watching the sunrise over the mountain from the east, or holding a glass of wine, admiring the glorious sunset from the west.
