About Lois

NYC professionals who use the home as as second home; site of their wedding!

Lois purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Lois chose Catskills

The area is quiet and beautiful and the lifestyle there is simple and relaxing as compared to daily life in NYC.

What makes this farmhouse unique

It's a great house for family and friends to gather for barbeques and holidays. Autumn colors are stunning and the backyard makes a great place to go sledding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has to be one of the most restful and pleasant vacations we have ever had. The house was wonderful! Even the 3-year-old didn't want to leave the house. We cooked and ate and read and took naps and had a great time doing nothing. I will definitely recommend your house to others who want a Catskill getaway.

Perfect Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The house was a lovely oasis on a mostly quiet street with a beautiful backyard--it was a perfect fit for my family and me on a long weekend. Thank you for sharing your home and especially for its well-stocked kitchen.

Great escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I along with our dog stayed for a long weekend in this fantastic house. It was definitely too much room for just the 3 of us, but we didn't mind. This property would be great for a family gathering and could easily accommodate 8 people with plenty of room. All of the rooms are very clean and have their own character. Lois, the owner, was very good about giving us detailed instructions on where to find everything as well as great recommendations on what to do in the area. Lake Superior State Park is a short drive from the property and has a great place where you can let your dog swim. There is a great backyard with a deck and fire pit, which is where we spent most of our long weekend. Really a great place to unwind and get some fresh mountain air. We will definitely be back.

Great Relaxing Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Magical Catskills Farmhouse for a quiet getaway. The accommodations were excellent! Very clean! We enjoyed the quiet, comfortable, relaxing nature of the location. Exactly what we were hoping for! Lois was very helpful in providing lots of information about local resources for food, shopping, and even ice cream!

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Magical Catskills Farmhouse lives up to it's name. It became available at the exact time we needed it and offered a safe and nurturing environment for myself and my young children. Our family stayed there for the entire month of April and it was hardly enough time to settle in. The Easter holiday was one that they will remember for years to come. We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay with plenty of room to spread out and entertain family and friends. The quality amenities (the kitchen is amazing) were just what we needed to provide a restful respite from our daily life. My boys were very safe and enjoyed the expansive property with the beautiful creek almost as much as exploring the nooks and crannies of this ample home. Lois was completely available and a pleasure to conduct business with. She answered any questions we had right away and allowed us some much needed privacy. I have already recommended this property family and friends who would like some genuine down time in the Catskills!

Cool Rustic Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My roommates and our bf/gfs took a weekend trip Valentines weekend to get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC and relax. We arrived late Friday night. Lois was great to contact and was very prompt with information on the house. Once we cranked the heat up, the house was very warm and cozy, upstairs was a little colder but not bad. It snowed all day Saturday and was absolutely awesome. While it did restrict our activities, we subsituted exploring the area for sledding down some close hills. The kitchen is a good size, dining room sits plenty. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms.

Definitely recommend for a quiet, old fashioned relaxing time.

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I wanted a weekend getaway from the busy life in NYC and for our 2 year anniversary. We could not have been happier about our stay. The place was perfect for a romantic getaway. Looks like an older rustic farm cottage on the outside and is beautifully furnished on the inside - hardwood, new appliances, comfortable beds...so simple yet has everything you need. Could definitely tell the place has a lot of meaning to the owners. Julie (owner) was fantastic - easy going, great to talk to, very accommodating. We were disappointed we didn't get to meet her until we were leaving. We went hiking at a nearby park and traveled to Newport (about 40 minutes away).

Everything about it was perfect. We will be coming back very soon in the future!!!
