Cozy 3 bedroom house in the foothills of the Catskills mountains. Enjoy the amazing scenes of nature, babbling springs, starry nights, and the warmth of a fire. 2 hours NW of NYC leads to the never ending joy of peace and tranquility.
“We loved our retreat to the Catskills, large space with lovely vintage decor & fully equipped modern kitchen. The highlight was the outdoor spaces, cooking on the fire pit under the fairy lights. Hikes, towns, swimming all within 20-30 minutes from the house. Daniel was very responsive & was a great place to escape the city & work!”
Cozy county house 2min away from the lake, 15 min away from the casino, and 15 min away from Monticello motor club (driving). Our big family own several properties in NY and NJ. After amazing travel experiences with Airbnb we decided to become a host ourselves. We want to share our cozy country house with others. We always had quality times there, hopefully you'll have too. Treat our home like your own, that what will make it really special!
“Great place for a three night get away with my girlfriend. Fire pit both inside and outside (huge) and a nice unfiltered view of the night sky and stars offer relaxation by the fire. Bring/buy plenty of wood depending on how often you will be starting a fire. There is a wal-mart about 15 minutes away by car. The lake is more like a 5-10 minute walk. There is no area where you can relax on without trespassing. It is a residential area so be mindful and considerate. The kitchen is well stocked but some pans need to be replaced. I would also suggest packing your favorite spices because they did seem to be running low on specific things. Thankfully we brought ours. Water pressure for the sink and showers seem to have moments of higher pressure so it may take some time getting used to in order to avoid getting splashed on. The house has high ceilings. None of the doors seem to fully lock other than the front door and backyard door with a wooden stick. The sliding door on the ground level bedroom does not lock. Master bathroom upstairs is big and spacious. Plenty of towels and shampoos. Living room lighting is adequate if you don’t have issues with vision. I couldn’t seem to get the light on but the kitchen/hallway lights were good enough for us. It actually made things a bit more intimate. Love the wrap around porch. The lighting on one specific part of the porch is very nice at night. Plenty of outdoor chairs for everyone, at least if the group is kept to 10-12 people. Overall, despite some minor things, I would recommend this home for an inexpensive, all you need, few days getaway with a close group of friends or family. We had a great time cooking, drinking, and huddled up by the fire at night which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you Olga for making our stay enjoyable.”
Less than a two hour drive from NYC. A well equipped private retreat in a quiet wooded location with lots of outdoor recreation area. Just two blocks from a lake, close to Bethel Woods, Monticello Casino and Waterpark.
“John is a wonderful host. He picked us up from the bus stop and was very accommodating to our arrival time. He even picked picked us up and took us back to the bus stop at checkout - saving us multiple taxi trips! He EVEN brought us bacon and eggs one morning because the local grocery store was closed. Responded almost instantly whenever we had any questions. The hot tub was amazing under the stars and snow. We saw multiple herds of deer wandering the backyard during the 3 days we were there. The wifi and TV worked perfectly (easy to access netflix/hbo/hulu/etc.). Kitchen was stocked with basic necessities. We will definitely be back :) Things to note - Uber/Lyft DO pick up in the area, but the 2 times we tried to get a car the apps said it would take 20 mins for drivers to get to us. And as of this date, you can't schedule pickups in advance. So make sure you bring ALL the supplies you need if you don't have a car (i.e. food). Especially in winter, because the closest market is a 20 min walk (and it was closed when we got there).”
