About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5 - 6, with Swimming Hole.

“For anyone looking for a natural tonic to urban life this place is the ticket.” – Rebecca 2011

Summer in the Catskill Mountains is in full swing within nature and festivities. Trails that make your heart soar are awaiting your presence.

At Streamside one can cook & then dine privately with your own romantic meal in a classic diner booth, while enjoying mountain picture views.

Unwind and rejuvenate in this unique artist-designed, sun-illuminated, streamside apartment that embodies the Catskill Mountains both inside and out.

Under a star-studded sky away from city glare enjoy the fireflies dancing through the night. If a night is cool, relax in front of a cozy fire.

Surrounded by mountains and sky, and rushing streams, this is an ideal haven to recharge and reboot, dream, & be inspired.

Summer Swim in the refreshing waters of the "on-property" swimming hole and relax with the naturally bubbling Jacuzzi as the stream fills the swimming hole. After swimming one can walk along the stream wilderness or observe the aquatic bird life.

Streamside is perfect restorative space for hikers, and festival enthusiasts: all those seeking to refresh themselves, after adrenaline fueled mountain challenge, zipline, rock climbing, or simply after enjoying the raw beauty of the Catskills or local culture.

Fantastic remote getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Ian's. The streamside was beautiful and the actual accommodations were more than we ever could've expected. Private and serene. Be sure to bring an extra bottle of wine because it gets pretty hard to leave waterfront when the sun starts setting. Also plan on spending an extra hour or so in one of the best showers ever. Thanks again Ian!

Great base for our outings in the area

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was roomy and well appointed. The starter breakfast supplies were much appreciated. The shower was great too - always nice after a long day in the outdoors. We will definitely try to book again when we return to the area.

Very Happy!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with hospitality of the owner. we had very interesting and fun 3 days. Back yard leads to the river where he had a nice set-up of table, chairs and bonfire that made our nights very romantic. He was also very helpful with giving us good suggestions about surrounding sightseeing. So, we are very happy and highly recommend renting Ian's place.

Ian was an incredibly gracious and accommodating host. He was on-site to welcome us and to answer any questions we had about the property and the surrounding area. He also left tons of materials for us about the area, which made getting around much, much easier. The home was clean and well cared for. He left coffee, fruit, and other breakfast goods for us, and even set aside an extra set of blankets, towels, and pillows for our stay (we had an extra guest). The house has tons of natural light, is airy, and has ample room for relaxing and hanging out. The stream in the backyard is secluded, gorgeous, and refreshing. Can't say enough great things about Streamside and its host! I'd recommend this property to anyone looking to get away for the weekend.

Owner's Response: Kylie was a wonderful guest as were her friends. We had excellent communication regarding the needs of her party at Streamside and also for exploring treasures in our neck of the woods. At the end of their weekend the place was left clean and perfectly set for housekeeping. A delight to have stay, and this host highly recommends Kylie and guests to others........ Come back soon.

Cozy & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as described on the website. Cabin/Studio was cozy, rustic and charming. The owner was on site and available to answer any of our questions. He also ensures you have the utmost privacy. Prior to arrival, Ian provided us with all the details including how to get to the location, very helpful advice on what to do in the area and a list of the best restaurants to choose from. It was a nice place to explore a cute little town, get out of the city, and enjoy the country. The swimming hole and stream was extremely tranquil. If you want a cute place to get away, this is the place for you. Thanks again for everything!
