About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Fully renovated 1885 farmhouse in the village of Roxbury only minutes from most wedding venues and just down the street from the Roxbury Motel. It is a quick stroll to the village where you can visit the local WIOX radio station, enjoy art shows and music performances at the Roxbury Arts Group, a deluxe spa at the Roxbury Motel or stroll in Roxbury's Kirkside Park and take in a summertime vintage baseball game played by the Roxbury Nine. Or simply enjoy watching the array of birds outside the picture window at the kitchen table or from one of several outdoor seating areas. Yes, deer, rabbits, and grouse are seen from that perch, as well. Our house is made for relaxation, family gatherings and soaking up the bountiful nature outside every window.

After a day of hiking/biking/golfing/tubing/swimming/playing tennis/horseback riding/ antiquing, enjoy a quiet moment on the back patio soaking up the tranquility of a mountain view or relaxing in the open plan living area.

Bedrooms include: master queen bed with private bath; 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds and shared bath with 3rd bedroom with futon. Full bath downstairs, too.

Keywords: farmhouse, in the village, charming, cozy, open, comfortable, with fireplace, large garden, mountain views, near water,

About Lewis Wendell

As a family we love to escape the urban jungle and go to our slice of heaven. The kids get to romp outdoors and we get to enjoy the many cultural/historical activities.

Lewis Wendell purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Lewis Wendell chose Catskills

We loved the mix of mountains, open valleys and streams this part of the Catskills offers. Roxbury is a charming little hamlet with so much to do and see.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Relax. Relax. Relax. We love all the outdoor activities and we love the quiet time of reading by the fire, seeing our neighbors and enjoying the country. This was supposed to be a seasonal home and we visit every weekend of the year that we can!

Great house and responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - actually nicer in person than we expected. Very convenient for the wedding we were attending. Owner was very responsive and we had a good stay.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home! Shared it with friends to attend a wedding at the Roxbury Barn. Plenty of space for each couple, clean, inviting, beautiful grounds, close to everything in town. Owner was a pleasure to deal with. Would rent again if in the area.

Serene property, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My review comes many months too late, but it shows just how great my stay was at this property. Lewis was so easy to work with. In the beginning I was surprised by the formality of the process (compared to my other experience booking via VRBO): he sent over a thorough contract and requested a few other things before we could finalize the booking. Seeing how attentive he was from the start, though, I knew there would be no surprises (bad ones, of course) once we arrived.

And I was right -- the property was lovely. Spacious, clean, serene ... a beautiful house located just a short walk from the village center. My friends and I (a total of five) all loved the place, and if we ever get a chance to return to Roxbury, we know where we'll be looking.

Thanks Lewis and Abigail!

Charming Roxbury house highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 10 month old son, and friend recently rented this house for a weekend. Not only is the house beautiful but incredibly comfortable. The backyard is huge and has a breathtaking view of the mountains. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need - we cooked every meal there.

We were in town for a wedding at the Roxbury Barn. The location of the house is unbeatable- 4 min drive to the Barn and walking distance to the little town center.

The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. There is a lot of care put into the home and you can feel it in every way. I highly recommend this property!!

A Darling Home in an Enchanting Landscape

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with the adorable farmhouse accommodations in Roxbury, NY that we did not want to leave. Nestled at the end of a quiet country road near the railroad tracks (be sure to check out the cool dinner train that departs from Arkville) this home has all the charm (and more) the VRBO posting offers. The home is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities and luxuries one needs for a relaxing weekend in the Catskills. Aside from the lovely interior decor the yard and gardens offer a delightful retreat. In addition to the lovely surroundings you will experience when you arrive, the owners are an absolute pleasure to work with. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city or of your daily life. Take a lovely drive to this enchanting little town and wonderful home for a retreat you are sure to enjoy!
