About the property

3 Bedroom 3.5 baths with Mountains, Water View, Sleeps 8

A Little Piece of Heaven in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Leave the noise and traffic behind as you drive approximately two and a half hours north of NYC to the Broken Arrow. Nestled on 50 acres, 1/2 mile off the main road leads you to your private getaway for relaxing and enjoying all that nature has to offer. Whether it's getting together for adventures like hiking, kayaking, skiing (located within a short drive away). Or just sitting on the 12x36 foot covered deck looking at the million dollar view of the Pepacton Reservior, there is something for everyone at the Broken Arrow. Our home is perfect for anyone wanting to relax and unwind, or using the home as a base to explore all that this area has to offer. This home is also great for several couples, family reunions, girls/guys only weekends, spiritual retreats, artists, writers, painters or anyone looking for the peace and quiet of a few days or a few weeks in the crisp mountain air.

About Dan & Maureen

Dan, an avid outdoorsman bought this property in 2003. The area has held special meaning to Dan as he came to the Catskills with his father, uncles and cousins since the early 70's to hunt. Fulfilling his lifelong dream of having a home in the Catskills, the cabin was built and finished in November of 2004. Decorating and furnishing the cabin has been lots of fun, and keeps us busy. Dan takes great pride in his craftsmanship; his tables, hunting and fishing trophies are displayed throughout the cabin. I enjoy antiquing with my sister and our treasures can be found throughout our home as well.

Dan & Maureen purchased this house in 2004

Why Dan & Maureen chose New York

This is the quintissential family vacation home. When you leave the city and arrive here surrounded by this natural beauty, the spirit soars! Our home is nestled amongst tall pines and blue skies where eagles soar above and deer and turkey roam freely in front of us. With a six mile view of the Pepacton Reservoir, the view never gets old. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while listening to the symphony offered by our resident songbirds and at night you can gaze into the heavens where each star seems to tell a story of it's own.

What makes this house unique

Our kitchen is fully equipped for the discerning cook, and our open floor plan is perfect so no one misses out on conversations or laughter and aromas coming from the kitchen or the sound of family gathered around the roaring fire in the living room.

It's the best place you will find in the Downsville NY area!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th stay in the "Broken Arrow". And there will be many more I hope! Dan, the owner, is a super nice guy and really keeps the place in tip top condition. The property is very comfortable to relax in. The kitchen is great to cook in. The view is pretty hard to beat, except when it's foggy. And even the foggy view is pretty cool. It is very isolated so that could be a problem if that bothers you. I, and my group, love the place!!!!!

The best ever for peace and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is very spacious, modern, comfortable and has everything you could want as far as amenities. I love the porch for reading and relaxation - it's enormous, well decorated and the view is spectacular. The owner makes a point of being readily available by phone if you have any questions. We plan to return next year!

Very quiet and secluded. A beautiful view with a short trail into the woods. While I was standing in the yard, I heard something running from the woods. A doe came running out not ten feet from me. We both scared each other! The doe continued to run across the field and dash into the woods on the other side! It was wonderful! Loved the screened porch! The kitchen was very well stocked.

Gorgeous house to enjoy a winter weekend at

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Broken Arrow. We came up for a new years weekend with two other couples. The house was immaculate when we arrived. Between the views, the open floor plan and the huge stone fireplace it was the perfect location for a winter getaway. We look forward to returning sometime in the summer to enjoy it in another season. Thanks Dan!

A beautiful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Dan has a beautiful cabin tucked away on 40 acres. It comfortably houses 3-4 couples. The decor is authentic hunting lodge with several stuffed animals including a huge bear that greets you as you come in the front door. A very comfortable rear porch looks out over a vast woodland and reservoir. it is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle! It is vey clean and well maintained with a complete kitchen and dining room.
