Overview

About the property

Dogs With References Ok! • Stylish Bungalow • 2 Bedroom • 1.5 Bath • Sleeps 4

Nestled high on the hill looking out over Pepacton reservoir, you'll find our treetop bungalow set in 5 acres of woodland and wildflower gardens. Travel just 2.5 hours from the George Washington bridge and leave the city far behind. Reconnect with fresh air, tranquility, and nature. This is true wilderness.

The 1,400 square foot Rainbow Ranch has two bedrooms (one king, one queen) and 1.5 bathrooms providing a spacious getaway for 4. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to make a delicious meal out of the fresh organic produce and homemade delights you find at farm stands and farmer’s markets and there's a dishwasher to ease the clean up.

Walk through the dining room to the giant living room and warm yourself at the bluestone fire place, flanked by octagonal windows. Step through the picture window to the sweeping sundeck – nearly the size of the house again. Recline and enjoy your morning coffee listening to the birds and looking out over the lake with the Catskills reaching out beyond.

If you can tear yourself away from the view, there are awesome hikes (everywhere!), swimming holes (20 mins), fly fishing on Beaverkill (30 min), fishing/kayaking on Pepacton Reservoir (5 mins), swimming at little pond (20 min), skiing at Belleayre (25 mins) and Plattekill (30 mins), Belleayre Music Festival (15 mins), legendary fall colors (everywhere!), antiques, auctions, and crafts (everywhere!).

Don't feel like roasting marshmallows around our campfire under countless stars surrounded by fireflies? Head to Andes (15 min), an upstate NYC outpost, and get big city comforts with a village vibe. Margaretville (great supermarket - 5 min), Bovina (15 min) Arkville (8 min), and Roxbury (20 min) also offer great dining options and mountain hospitality.

We’ll provide a full list of tips on activities, trails, and places to eat and we have a map room packed with leaflets and maps from local places, so you’ll get most out of your stay.

Peaceful hideaway in the forest

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Arizona, we really enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time in the cool, green mountains. The home is well-equipped with a beautiful, large outdoor space to spend time relaxing. Lovely yard and beautiful deck with a clear view of the water.

Beautiful relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved staying at this beautiful place. It was perfect for our family of 4. Our 7 & 4 year old loved the outside space, the toys the owners kindly provided and the house was spacious for a holiday home. The house has everything for a comfortable stay, we are planning to go back again!!!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little home for a weekend getaway! If you are looking for a place to get away and enjoy the peacefulness of the Catskills, this is it! We were able to bring our dogs which only added to the weekend! The owner was extremely flexible with check in and out which was great since we had quite the drive. We made great use of all of the many amenities that are provided. We will definitely return!

Pretty and Peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice private and woodsy property with a nice lake view. I am not giving 5 stars because it was pretty cold. This is a better place to stay in the summer.

Beautiful, peaceful get away!

  • 4 of 5

Overall I thought this property was really great. The grounds were gorgeous and I spent a great deal of time outside with our dog. The inside was nice and had everything we needed. I liked that Margaretville (a very cute small town) was close enough so we could run and get food. My only complaint is one night we saw a mouse in the living room, and my husband saw a small snake (black racer) in the kitchen going underneath the fridge. I understand that being in the woods, it would be hard to avoid bugs getting in the house, but I'm a little less forgiving of snakes. Additionally, we were a little disappointed that there were cobwebs all over even though people that stay there pay a $120 cleaning fee.

Owner's Response: Well - we sincerely thank you for the 4 stars. It is testament to how great this place is that you gave us that even though an admittedly harmless snake formed part of your visit. We have taken action so as not to have anyone else experience this. An exterminator is now coming monthly and we rebuilt a side of the house that had some rot and had become porous to the wilderness. No more sightings and we appreciate the heads up and your taking this in good heart.
