About Jolene Adams

We are artists in the field of film and theatre. After years of city living both in NYC and LA, we have finally realized our dream of buying a home in the country with a guest house for our large family and artist friends who want to retreat from their busy worlds to write, paint, rehearse new works or just enjoy the sights and rest.

Jolene Adams purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jolene Adams chose Catskills

We have been looking for the right place for five years and dreaming of the right place for many more. We knew we wanted an old stone house on enough acreage to feel away from it all but close enough to people so we wouldn't be isolated. Close enough to NYC but far away enough to be in the country. We wanted lots of old trees. And, if it wasn't too much to hope for, some water on the property too. When we saw the incredible BlueMountain House built in 1793 with it's sweet guest house, both newly renovated, it was love at first sight!

What makes this cottage unique

Both the main house and the guest house are beautifully and loving restored. The landscape design is very special, so natural and rustically sophisticated if that makes any sense! Our favorite thing is sitting outside with our morning coffee and watching the birds and the occasional chipmunk or deer forage nearby.

Perfect getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at the guest house!! It was perfect in every way for us!! Easy access to the Newburgh airport, local shops and restaurants and the Mountain Jam Festival. The guest house is so welcoming, cozy and beautifully decorated!! The attention to detail is excellent!! Walking by the creek and enjoying the weather was such a wonderful change from where we live in Florida! I highly recommend this home away from home and hope we can return soon!

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely place! It was super clean and the decor was perfect. Super homey and cozy and lovely for a weekend. We had our dog with us and he loved exploring the area and dipping into the creek.

Jolene was kind enough to leave us muffins when we got there, and the cottage has everything you need, from a spatula down to towels.

Thank you again for hosting us!! We had a great time!

An amazing stay in the most warm and welcoming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough things about how amazing our time was at the cottage. From the moment we stepped into the door, we couldn't stop gushing at how welcoming and inviting the home is. There were muffins left, the most delicious raspberries and other goodies in the fridge. I kept telling my husband it was the sweetest and cutest house we've ever been in. It was the two of us, our toddler and our dog. We took walks in the mornings around the house which was so beautiful and relaxing. We then went snowboarding at Hunter, and would spend the nights back in the home playing games, etc. We can't wait to be back and I can't say enough wonderful things about this home and the owners of it. Thank you so much for such beautiful memories!

Truly a Treat!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Blue Mountain was wonderful on so many different levels. Our first impression was

"Welcome, welcome, welcome". The furnishings tasteful and warm, and all sorts of little things are set out to make you feel like you are the special guests Jolene and Grady were so looking forward to hosting...from fresh flowers from their lovely garden to fresh baked goods on the counter and lots in between! The cottage was ideal for our weekend retreat, beginning with the refreshing dip in their creek - after our long hot drive. We enjoyed the local trails as well as visiting Woodstock and Saugerties and truly appreciated the cozy comfort of their cottage after our busy days. We are already looking forward to our next stay at Blue Mountain Guest House!
