Charming and spacious cedar country house on 5 very private acres with glorious flower gardens, fruit trees, meadows, and woods. Near the house is a pristine and serene reservoir for kayaking, rafting or fishing.
There is a long driveway leading to the house so you can enjoy peace and quiet without seeing any other houses or neighbors all week.
The rental would be perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, birdwatchers, or anyone that just wants to enjoy country life for a while.
The house is also near the Kadampa Buddhist meditation center, the Forestburgh Playhouse, and the Bethel Woods concert series.
The area is famous for its white water rafting on the Delaware River 10 minutes from the house. There are also nearby hiking trails, lakes, rivers, wine tasting, outdoor concerts, and antique stores.
Watch the wildlife, bunnies, wild turkeys and bluebirds. We have no traditional TV but have wi-fi, lots of movies and a DVD player. This is a great way to unplug and get back to nature!
It is accessible by train and bus from NY city but you will need a car to buy provisions and sightsee.
The house stays very cool in the summer. This is not the city!
NO PETS, NO SMOKING
This private, quiet, and lovely home sitting on a beautiful property provided us with a peaceful and comfortable retreat. We look forward to staying here again.
I stayed here for a week around my wedding at a nearby location, and it was a lovely and charming place to have as a home base for all of those activities. The house is renovated with tasteful and artistic decor, all of the handcrafted wood furniture is very rich and cozy...I really appreciated all the beautiful details. The yard is gorgeous and so peaceful - it is truly private and very quiet. The gardens attract so many butterflies and hummingbirds, you can sit and watch them for hours! This is a great value for a great landing place for all of the great area activities. I really appreciate Lisa opening her beautiful home to us during this special time!
Our family with 2 adults and 3 children really enjoyed the week in this house.The house is settled on very big property in the woods away from the road and away from the noise.There is only nature sounds like the singing of birds, the rustle of trees... The house is big, bright, full of light and very cozy. Also the owner is very nice and responses quickly to all your questions. Will recommend to all my friends.
Recently stayed here with a couple of friends. The house is very comfortable, spacious, quiet and full of light. We will definitely try to stay here again.
Our family of four had a wonderful time at this lovely country house. The grounds were just perfect and exactly what we needed to recharge. The kitchen had ample space and we enjoyed cooking every meal (very different from our tiny apartment kitchen). Even the days it rained it was a pleasure, watching the greenery, hummingbirds, and butterflies. We highly recommend!
My mom and my three young children really enjoyed our stay for the week. We loved being in nature and my son and I took daily walks into the woods behind the house. The deer, humming birds and wonderful natural setting really made the vacation special.
The house is located in beautiful Forestburgh, New York, only 1.75 hours northwest of NY city! It is accessible by train and bus as well.
It is close to the Delaware River and all of the white water rafting companies, hiking trails, fishing, lakes with beaches, the Bethel Woods Arts Center, the Forestburgh Playhouse, the Kadampa Meditation Center, the historic town of Milford, PA, High Point State Park, White Lake, historic Calicoon, Port Jervis and the stunning Rio Reservoir.
