About Anna

My husband and I are first generation American's, both designer, Fashion and Graphic design who love architecture and design. Although from opposite continentes we share the same taste level and passion for creating a beautiful yet comfortable living space.

Anna purchased this house in 2008

Why Anna chose Catskills

We fell in love with the property because of it's amazing location away from the road, private in this nook with this beautiful stone wall towards the mountain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had 3 families with very small children and it was the perfect vacation home. Anna was a great host and even set up changing stations and diapers and wipes for out little ones! The house was the perfect balance of modern but homey and had more toys than the kids knew what to do with! Which was great for the parents to keep them occupied! Anna also made some suggestions of going to the light house which was so lovely and the watering hole nearby. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning again! Thank you Anna for having us in your beautiful home!

Wonderful stay at Catskill Modern

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, a toddler and a baby) stayed at this property for a week at the beginning of October. We had a wonderful time! The house is exactly as depicted - very clean, attractive and well stocked with everything you need! Anna was very helpful and got back to me quickly with any questions. She was so sweet to leave toys out for our little one to play with. She had a ball in the little sand box and with the train set. We didn't get to use the outside amenities too much since it rained three days, but they are very attractive and we would love to return when the kids are a bit older to make smores and have a BBQ. We loved that the bathroom supplies were natural/organic and that there is no microwave - right up our alley! The kitchen is well stocked with anything you need for cooking and it was nice to have the w/d so that we could cut down on packing. The location is perfect for exploring the area. If you don't have a lot of time, I would skip the town of Catskill altogether - not much at all to do/see there. But, Saugerties is very cute and we ate at Lucy's twice (lunch and dinner) - it was FANTASTIC!! The little market right in Palenville was awesome and had wonderful sandwiches and pastries. We also visited Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and a bit of Woodstock - all worth a trip. We drove to the top of the mountain and took a walk/hike around North Lake - definitely a beautiful view! I highly recommend this house for anyone visiting the area - especially if you have little ones!

Owner's Response: Thank you Angie! I'm glad we were able to accommodate you and your family. I will add Lucy's to my "local info" and make sure to go there ourselves. We end up staying at the house 95% of the time when here. Hope to see you soon again!

Dreamy getaway and great host

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful home. My son had the greatest time ever playing in the sandbox, exploring the woods behind the house and Anna and her boys were so generous leaving toys and a train table out for him to use. It was a two year old fantasy. The adults loved the fully stocked kitchen, grill and outdoor dining as well as the great info on local attractions that Anna provided. We hope to come back again soon, what a haven. Thanks Anna!

Perfect long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over July 4 weekend with our (infant) daughter and our friends and their (infant) son. The house was the perfect escape from the city! It was exactly as depicted - clean, spacious, and very comfortable, even for two families. It was well equipped for the babies - there was a small changing area set up and a pack n play. Anna was extremely responsive and helpful. The area is beautiful and quiet, but with everything you need right around the corner. We look forward to coming back soon!

Beautiful and well designed oasis in upstate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the week of Thanksgiving and our stay couldn't have been more peaceful and wonderful.

Anna was very helpful throughout the booking process and was very attentive to all our needs. We had a family get together and had our 2 year old nephew with us. Anna left all the toys in the world for him to enjoy. The kitchen is well equipped and we could cook everything for our thanksgiving meal.

It snowed while we were there and the house and the surrounding is absolutely amazing. She even checked up on us to ensure we were ok during the snowstorm.

All in all if you are looking for something quite and peaceful with a modern dwelling this is the place to stay.

Thanks,

Nidhi

Beautiful peaceful home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 5 year old son and our parents for a long weekend and it was the perfect spot. Peaceful, quiet, clean, great location... The house is tastefully decorated and perfectly set up for people who like to read, cook, play, and be together. The large room on the ground floor is especially wonderful with all the windows. We would love to stay again and highly recommend it to any one else.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jonathan! I'm glad you enjoyed the house so much. It really is a good spot to share with family or friends we have found as well with the bedrooms being separated on each floor. The wrap around windows make for a nice feeling all year around. You feel like you are in the middle of nature. Hope to see you soon again! Best, Anna
