Overview

About the property

Just 2 hours North of NYC & 10 min. to Woodstock NY

The Glenford House offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6-8. Private Hot Tub, outdoor fire pit, ping-pong table, fireplace, gas grill, deck with amazing views. Good cell phone reception and fast wifi. Sorry, no pets.

Experience the serenity and beauty of the Catskills from our newly renovated home with views of the Ashokan Reservoir and Shawangunk Mountains. We designed The Glenford House to be a peaceful retreat with the rustic charm of a country cottage and modern amenities of city living. A place to enjoy slow and simple pleasures like cooking for loved ones in a light-drenched kitchen or reading books you've been meaning to for much too long.

Enjoy the quiet and privacy of the country, complete with swimming holes and hikes near by, while also having easy access to great restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, arts and music, and movies just ten minutes away in great towns like Woodstock, Phoenicia, Saugerties, and Kingston.

You’ll have an eat-in cook’s kitchen with five burner range, an airy living room with cathedral ceilings and a huge farm table, second floor master bedroom with adjacent room that doubles as a writing or yoga studio- with water views, two other lovely bedrooms- one first floor queen, and a second floor full sized bed with water views, two full bathrooms, one on each floor, a bright sun room with four walls of windows, TV room with basic cable (24 channels) plus Roku with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and Wii, and a two level deck/porch with a Weber Genesis grill and ping-pong table. Plus, ample windows and water and mountain views from almost every room imbue the house with a light and airy feeling. Also, relax and enjoy a newly installed private hot tub on the lower patio.

Kitchen: Our eat-in cook's kitchen comes complete with a comfy breakfast nook looking out over the Ashokan, a five-burner gas stove with a double oven, dishwasher, a deep farm sink, and ample supplies. We love to cook, and we've filled the kitchen to the brim with everything from stainless steel and non-stick frying pans in a range of sizes, to specialty items like Le Crueset lasagna pans, a double boiler, pancake griddle, and a Keurig coffee maker (stocked with K-cups) alongside a french press and standard coffee maker, and a well-stocked pantry. And just outside the door is a Weber Genesis gas grill on the deck. We also supply you with a full kitchen inventory before you arrive for planning purposes.

Entertainment: Our TV room comes with a flat-screen television with cable; Roku with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime; and Wii. We also have games, many books, and a ping-pong table.

Outdoor Activities: If you like to get outside, it’s hard to imagine a better place to do it. In the winter, enjoy great skiing and snowboarding with Hunter, Belleayre, and Windham just 25 to 45 minutes away. For cross-country skiers, the Mountain Trails cross country ski center, with a network of maintained trails, is also easily accessible. Go swimming in the many local swimming holes, tubing down the Esopus, hiking in the Catskills state parks, climbing in the Gunks, fishing in the reservoir, zip-lining at Hunter Mountain—the list goes on and it’s all close. And if you’re a cyclist, we’re happy to provide challenging routes full of rollers and hills or easy tours showcasing the extraordinary beauty of the region—you name it.

Discovering the Catskills: To help you get the most out of your stay, we've put together a guide to the region with favorite restaurants and things to do, maps to activities, places to get supplies, and suggested highlights of the area.

While we love dogs, we maintain a low allergen environment, and do not allow pets in our vacation rental.

The second payment (50% + the security deposit) is due 21 days before check-in date. We also offer 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before the check-in date.

About Deborah Osherow

We are Deborah and David Osherow. We’ve been married for 25 years, and have raised two children in the Catskills. We’ve lived here since 1989 and currently reside 4 miles from The Glenford House. We purchased the property in July 2014, and have found a new passion: hosting guests! It’s a perfect fit for us. We’re both very detailed oriented, and strive for the best possible stay for all our guests. Our goal is that you leave with a feeling of relaxation and renewal by providing you with everything you need to make your stay simple and easy. We love the hospitality aspect of our business, and enjoy the challange of anticipating the needs of our guests and outdoing their expectations.

Between us, we play Celtic Music, enjoy cooking, yoga, fencing, film noir, dancing, sculpture, chess, design and spontaneous pot luck dinner parties.

Deborah Osherow purchased this house in 2014

Why Deborah Osherow chose Catskills

We have always admired the mesmerizing view of this property. It's on our route if we take the backroads into Woodstock. When it came up for sale, Deborah awoke one morning and 'knew' we had to buy it!

What makes this house unique

We were lucky enough to be able to purchase the property from Peter and Lisa fully furnished and with all the amenities. We love the modern/rustic style, its great location, and of course the awesome view of the Ashokan Reservoir and the mountains beyond.

Incredible home with incredible views!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect home for a perfect family getaway. The home was just right for a break from the city. The vista is stunning and the home's peaceful setting gave complete respite. We loved the spacious, light-filled kitchen complete with all of the amenities of home and enjoyed dinners on the grill each night. Woodstock is very close with access to great restaurants, but we preferred to cook at home! Everything about this home was just right. The home met our expectations and more and the owners couldn't have been more accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend. We Loved our stay!!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Deborah made our couples getaway a truly memorable trip. Her attention to detail was unmatched. The kitchen was fully stocked, the decor was calming, the furnishings were so comfortable, and the views were amazing! Deborah left us all of the information we needed on the house and the surrounding areas to make our stay as easy and stress free as possible. We would go back in a heartbeat! You won't regret booking a stay here.

This is the perfect getaway to the Catskills!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property have anticipated every possible need for their guests and respond immediately to any questions. The location is central to many hiking locations and straddles the Catskills and the Hudson River Valley. There are excellent restaurants but the home is so well stocked for cooking that we ate in many nights. The hot tub is a great amenity after days filled with hiking. These owners should conduct seminars for VRBO, they do everything right!!!

Beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked the whole time we were there so I was very happy with how easy it was to find what we needed. Every bed was so comfortable and we all slept well after our daily hikes. The outdoor space is perfect for unwinding and the morning views were the best! It was very easy to communicate with the owner as well. Overall, a wonderful getaway!
