Property description

Situated on the legendary Niobe Falls, The Waterfall House is a sunny and bright, charming Victorian house at the end of a quiet country lane. Unspoiled Palenville, home to Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle," is centrally located between 'Woodstock,, Saugerties, 'Catskill' and Hunter.

Furnished with country antiques and original art, the Waterfall House has two bedrooms, two full spacious baths plus a den with twin bed "sleeper chairs." The full size sofa bed in the living room affords a glorious waterfall view. A separate dining room comfortably seats six.

The fully equipped cook’s kitchen features granite counters and coffee nook with delightful river views. French doors in the living room and den open to a romantic wrap-around porch right over the river with majestic mountain and waterfall views, the inspiration for the famed Hudson River School of Painters.

Iconic Woodstock, a 10 mile drive, is a haven for shops, galleries and restaurants. Nearby Hunter Mountain (10 miles) provides a wide range of winter and summer sports. Hunter is the first of the three major ski resorts, which also include Windham and Belleayre. The 'Catskill Mountain Foundation' offers classes in the arts and many craft and culinary events. Nature lovers will appreciate the access to hiking and fishing.

In summer and fall, browse the outdoor flea market. A wide variety of shops, galleries and first-rate restaurants are all within strolling distance. Enjoy a concert at the historic Maverick or live theater at the Woodstock Playhouse. The 'Woodstock Film Festival, held each autumn, is a movie lover's delight.

The charming Village of Saugerties, (“....one of the ten coolest small towns in America...” Budget Traveler Magazine), an easy 8 mile drive, provides easy access to the Hudson River for boating and sailing and is home to H.I.T.S., a major equestrian center. Exciting new shops and restaurants and many festivals and events such as the Garlic Festival each September and the 'Jazz Festival' make Saugerties a destination in its own right. A colorful Farmer’s Market is open in season.

Evenings are perfect for strolling to the 'Fernwood Restaurant' for cocktails and dinner.

Keywords: Perennial gardens and swimming holes surround this charming Victorian house set on a quiet country lane.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: When "ThingBig!" creator Bob Malkin met Emmy-award winning editor and novelist Barbara Pokras, neither dreamed they'd be the owners of The Waterfall House.

Why the Owner Chose Saugerties:
We simply couldn't say, "no," when we found the Waterfall House. The next question, what to do with it? We already had a house nearby with its own, smaller waterfall. Our solution? To create an extraordinary vacation rental home to share with the world. Our guests come from far and wide, and the response has been beyond our wildest dreams!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Waterfall House is the perfect retreat from the hectic pace of life. Relaxation is a given, as are hiking, swimming, skiing, fishing, shopping, gallery hopping and fine dining.
