Woodstock house description

Situated on the legendary Niobe Falls, The Waterfall House is a charming Victorian house at the end of a quiet country lane. Private steps down to these “pride of the Catskills” natural waterfalls make this home unique. Unspoiled Palenville, home of Washington Irving's 'Rip Van Winkle,' is ideally located between Woodstock, Saugerties, Catskill and Hunter. Furnished with country antiques and original art, this vacation rental home has two bedrooms, each with its own full bath plus a den with twin bed convertible chairs. The queen size sofa bed in the living room affords a glorious waterfall view framed by spectacular spring, summer and autumn foliage. The separate dining room seats six. French doors open to a romantic wraparound porch with majestic mountain, river and waterfall views! Enjoy breakfast on our romantic, wraparound porch, or lunch at the Circle W General Store. Stroll over to The Fernwood Restaurant for dinner or drinks.


Especially for Nature Enthusiasts: Discover nearby hiking trails. We provide trail maps and hiking guides. Wildlife is abundant, so bring your camera.

We'll help you plan just the right outdoor adventure hike. In season, tour the neighborhood with bicycles we provide.

Convenient to H.I.T.S.: Our proximity to this major equestrian center makes this home ideal for those participating in, or simply attending the wealth of seasonal events.

Skiers, Take Note!: We are located a mere ten miles from Hunter Mountain!

                          Car: Recommended

                          Ideally located in unspoiled Palenville, close to Woodstock (12 miles), Saugerties

                          (8 miles), Hunter (10 miles) and Catskill (10 miles). Our area hosts many music venues, live theatres and festivals such as the Jazz Festival, Garlic Festival, and the Woodstock Film Festival each autumn. Antique and art lovers will find treasures galore. A variety of restaurants, farm stands and farmers' markets will satisfy any appetite. Horse lovers note - we are close to H.I.T.S. Fleas markets and tag sales are weekend treats. Ski Hunter Mountain for winter sports.

                          Other Activities: Spectacular hiking, trout fishing and swimming make The Waterfall House the perfect vacation rental choice.

                          Golf: We are barely five minutes away from the Rip Van Winkle Golf Club, Palenville's lovely 9 hole course. Travel just a bit further to the Catskill Golf Course (10 miles) for an 18 hole course, or Woodstock (12 miles) for its 9 hole course.

                          Ski: Hunter Mountain (10 miles) is a popular ski resort, or go to nearby Belleayre or Windham.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: 'ThinkBig!' creator Bob Malkin and former Emmy award winning film editor, author and former professor Barbara Pokras met and married in 1992. After relocating to New York City in 1997, we discovered the Catskills and in a single weekend, bought our first house. We love the proximity to Manhattan, the beauty of the area and the access to nature. Bob loves to hike the mountain with our dog Lucy, and Barbara spends time gardening, writing for the Woodstock Film Festival, and finding little 'treasures' for The Waterfall House.

                          Why the Owner Chose Woodstock:
                          We never dreamed we'd be in the Vacation Rental business, but when we first saw The Waterfall House with its magnificent setting and old perennial gardens, we simply couldn't resist.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Fantastic waterfall and mountain views. Sleep to the sounds of falling water. Most guests tell us our photographs don't do justice to the spectacular setting.
