About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6) with Fireplace and Sauna

Our recently renovated home is halfway up Little Mountain with two ponds, large decks, a covered porch, a heated pool, a sauna and a fire pit. There's a mountain view from almost every room. And we are 20 minutes from Woodstock and skiing.

The house has three bedrooms/bathrooms on three separate floors (one kids bedroom with twins beds). Open-floor plan features large, fully-equipped kitchen, wood burning stove (we supply wood), large outdoor deck & furniture, a covered porch, a sauna, two ponds and an in-ground heated pool.

Amenities: WiFi, Apple TV, 100% cotton linens and towels, firewood, W/D, & gas grill.

The remote location offers a peaceful getaway, but is just short drive to Woodstock, Phoenicia, Bearsville and other areas for art galleries, restaurants, hiking, activities, music, etc.

Beautiful home with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at this modern and well maintained home. The setting is perfect - secluded but still close enough to easily get to groceries or restaurants and hiking. Kay was a wonderful host who was very responsive to our needs. The house is good for sharing as there is a bedroom and bath on each floor. The kitchen and bath are recently renovated and the loft living room with a fireplace made us never want to leave. An ideal weekend getaway.

Beautiful, well maintained home- take caution in some seasons

  • 3 of 5

We have rented in this area many times, and this is one of the nicest rental properties we have stayed in. The house was very clean, the furniture is in great shape, and the amenities are top notch. The views are gorgeous, and the owners were easy to communicate with. However, there was a serious ladybug infestation (technically, the Asian lady beetle, we learned a lot about the creatures this weekend) The floor was covered with hundreds of them on arrival, and they pervaded the whole house. We had to vacuum the whole house at least hourly in order to keep up with them (the vacuum cleaner was fantastic as well.) After having done some research, i am fairly positive you could rent here and not encounter them. We stayed here on an unseasonably warm weekend at the end of winter, which evidently spurs the hibernating bugs to action and they get confused and end up inside the house instead of outside.(late fall and early spring would be another time they may be active) However, it marred our experience in a truly lovely home.

Beautiful Sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

We were so sad to have to leave this lovely property after our week stay! Total privacy, beautiful light-filled modern and open kitchen/living area, amazing views, fire pit for relaxing at night, speakers everywhere, huge deck, bed was so comfortable, wonderful shower in the downstairs bathroom, etc. The pool was magical - water was amazing (not too chlorinated) and the view and surrounding gardens were so lovely....we never wanted to leave. Kay was perfect to deal with - always prompt replies and good information. While secluded, the house was also just a few minute drive to local stores for supplies and some restaurants. If there were availability, we would have booked another stay next month!

Amazing Secluded House in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

We had a such a wonderful stay here! Tucked away on top of a hill with no neighbors in sight, you really feel like you're away from everything. The house is gorgeous - beautiful furnishings, ample space, speakers everywhere to play music. The kitchen has everything you need to cook delicious meals (and you get get your ingredients from the local farm stand in Boiceville). The pool is divine. Our kids did not want to leave for a second. Five stars!

Fantastic Home - Easy to DO:)

  • 5 of 5

Right from the word go we had an incredible experience! The owners are very kind and considerate and easy to deal with. They were extremely helpful with a how to guide for the area and the house and we had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend despite the weather:) The house is located on a beautifully landscaped property and it was just the antidote for 4 weary NYC dwellers. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet suppers, the bedrooms are all comfortable, the layout of the house is just what you picture and want from a vacation home - cozy, charming and interesting. We all had a go at making up a story as to who or how the wooden house came to rest in the Living Room:) Go - relax and ENJOY!!!

If you don't rent this place, you'll have a terrible time in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

Really. We went up with a couple friends and had a wonderful time. Quiet, peaceful, and the house is about as close to my dream home as I could ask for. It's beautiful, clean, secluded, yet not far away from good food shopping and dining. Kitchen's well-appointed, there's a great jacuzzi, and the woodstove is fantastic for winter. Bring a couple friends, a couple nice bottles of wine, some good food, and plan for a relaxed weekend.

Make sure to leave the place as clean or cleaner than you found it. The owners have taken wonderful care of it, and the place deserves a lotta love from guests too. We want to go back!
