Catskills Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2 - 4

Sophistication and country charm describes A StreamSide Cottage, a cozy vacation rental cottage nestled in the foothills of the Catskills and offering 1000’ of stream frontage. The perfect destination for that weekend getaway, writing retreat or romantic holiday, A Stream Side Cottage is Ideally located with easy access to Woodstock, Saugerties, Hunter Mountain and H.I.T..S. (for seasonal equestrian events) and a mere two hour drive from the George Washington Bridge.

Arrive at the cedar cottage and open the door to stunning views and walls of glass. Completely renovated, the cottage boasts a fully equipped chefs kitchen, Roche Bobois dining table and chairs, and original art and antiques as well as delightful objects from “ThinkBig!” creator, Bob Malkin.

Soak in our charming, claw foot tub with river view after a day of hiking, golf, tennis, swimming, fishing or skiing and allow the stresses of every day life to vanish. Enjoy the warmth of our cast iron fireplace. Have a glass of wine on the wide deck overlooking the water, or walk our path to views of the Fernwood Falls. Swimming is superb by the falls. Your well-mannered dog is welcome at A Stream Side Cottage.

Our upstairs loft with its sloped ceiling is a magical kingdom for children. The trundle bed sleeps two, and there are cozy corners for reading and a desk overlooking the creek where your kids may find inspiration to sit down and write that essay on “Where I spent my summer vacation.” It’s bound to get an “A.”

About The Owner

What happens when an arts entrepreneur and creator of 'ThinkBig!' gets together with an Emmy award winning film editor? She reads his personal ad (“FUN, 52, RECENT NYC transplant, sexy, successful, attractive arts entrepreneur, child like, sensitive, open, honest and well therapied...”), They meet, marry and move from Santa Monica, CA. to the West Village...until 9/11. Bob was 'ground zero.' It was time to leave. We fell in love with the Catskill region and ended up buying a home! We've been here full time since 2005.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why The Owner chose Catskills

Bob is obsessed with water. We are the owners of The Waterfall House, our first vacation rental home set on Niobe Falls. When the cottage down the road became available, we couldn't say no. After a full year of top to bottom renovation, A Stream Side Cottage, L.L.C., is brand new and ready for you!

What makes this cottage unique

Palenville is an unspoiled gem offering the magic of the Catskill Mountains with proximity to Woodstock, Saugerties, Hunter Mountain and the town of Hudson, a

destination for art and antique collectors.

Absolute peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are accurate. The house is directly on the stream/river. There is no house to the left or right. There are other houses on the single lane road but the road dead ends just after the house. I found it to be VERY clean. The manager Margie is the friendliest overseer I have met. She knows all about the house and the area. She suggested trails for my dogs that were not part of the trail books. This was most helpful since I have an older dog who likes to ride in a jogger. This is the first stop in a month long vacation and I fear I will regret leaving for the other adventures along the way. I've rarely found a place so easy to love and so hard to leave after only a few days.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

A sweet spot just steps from the creek. We went up for a long weekend with our 3 children, who had a great time exploring the path to the waterfall, the stream, rocks, and the hammock. The house itself has a nice, open layout and is very well kept. Bob and Babs went out of their way to make it welcoming, and the house is full of books on the area. The kids also loved the 'Big' things like the giant fork and pencil! Thank you!

Retro/ Art Deco Delight

  • 5 of 5

Walking in the front door and seeing the beautiful scenic views of the stream, and waterfalls made us instantly relax

The decor of the house was amazing Barb & Bill went out of their way to make this rental a place you can just stay inside, but don't. The trails are right in the backyard, and a hammock that makes you want to sleep in it for hours. At night, we took the lounge chairs down near the fire pit and make a roaring fire. Very romantic. It is the perfect place for a couple or a couple w a little one. I strongly recommend the stream side house to anyone who wants to escape from the reality of the city.

Thank you to Barbara and Bob for making this property available to us as a vacation rental. The property is amazing.. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a very long time. We enjoyed walking along the water, sitting on the rocks and just relaxing on the deck watching and listening to the stream. The house was perfect in every way. Comfortable, clean and we'll appointed.

The Fernwood Restaurant is only a short walk from the house and there are several other places nearby to get a bite to eat.. We enjoyed the house so much that we ate there most of the time.

Hopefully, we will be able to visit again.. It was truly a vacation to remember..
