Phoenicia house description

Stone vacation home in the center of the Catskills.
Renting by the week or the Month calendar depending. Available first week of March. Please note: max guests in Winter 6-8/ Please inquire. Special rate during the Winter. Summer rates start Memorial Day.

Magnificent stone and cedar home built in 1918 and lovingly renovated over the last twenty years. Historic feel of the days of boarding houses, timbering hemlocks and quarrying for bluestone. All the stone in the home comes from the creek across the road! Central stone double fireplace (two sided), with a woodstove. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sunroom - which is a perfect breakfast room, with picture window views of the forest and the base of the mountain behind the house. We have seen wild turkeys and deer through this view numerous times. The home has a grand bluestone porch that is wonderful for hanging out in the hammock or on the hanging swing style loveseat. Sounds of the mountain creek and nature all around. The road has a state campground at the end 3 miles away with hiking trails to the surrounding summits with views of the NYC reservoir and the Hudson river. Or a 4 mile drive or bicycle ride into town where you can find one of the best breakfasts you'll ever have at Sweet Sue's or rent a DVD at the video store or get ice cream, etc.

House is perfect for three - four couples or an extended family or friends. We provide firewood for the cool nights, a high speed internet connection with wifi, and a Japanese style soaking tub. If you are looking for a unique mission style and timeless getaway home that reminds one of the peacefulness and times of a century ago, this is your place.

$2000 per week/ $5000 month (discounted winter rate available) all inclusive.
50% deposit due 30 days in advance*

*The security deposit of 50% of total rental amount and is required to reserve the house. The full amount of the rental is required one week prior to the start of the rental period.
