Go To Flipkey rental site 737374 for many additional photos of property (but book on VRBO).

--WE NOW TAKE PAYPAL (CREDIT CARDS) AS PAYMENT--

+++++The famous and maintained Finger Lakes Trail System runs right up to our Farm!!!!


====JUST ONE HOUR DRIVE FROM BETHEL WOODS CENTER FOR THE ARTS-ORIGINAL SITE OF THE 1969 WOODSTOCK MUSIC FESTIVAL=====

====Swim in our pond, a local lake, or at the free to use Town olympic sized pool====

====45 MINUTES FROM WALTON TO EXCELLENT WINTER DOWNHILL SKIING SUCH AS BELLAYRE MOUNTAIN IN THE NORTHERN CATSKILLS=====

Come and enjoy our Catskill Mountain retreat. Private, extremely quiet, 36 acre farm with 1800's farmhouse, chicken coup, and huge post and beam barn. The property has a spring fed swimming pond and a large year round stream with concrete bridge over to barn. One can fish either in the stocked pond,private stream, public reservoir (Cannonsville), or on the world famous Delaware River. The property also has a separate campsite at the top of the mountain boasting a panoramic view of the Catskill mountains and valley below. There are also several other campsites on the property. Best of all, our farm borders New York City's Cannonsville Reservoir offering thousands of additional acres to hike or hunt.

====NOTE: THE ENTIRE FARM WILL BE FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE. NOBODY ELSE WILL BE ON THE PROPERTY WHILE YOU ARE THERE=====


====IF SWIMMING IN OUR POND IS NOT YOUR THING, THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL, OLYMPIC SIZED POOL IN THE VILLAGE OF WALTON THAT IS FREE FOR OUR GUESTS TO USE ANY TIME DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS====

====THERE IS ALSO A STATE PARK WITH A LAKE AND BEACH FOR SWIMMING NEARBY======

Trophy hunting is available at our farm or on the DEP property (separate hunting permit required offered for free and easily downloaded by internet). The reservoir itself is walking distance from the house. This reservoir offers excellent fishing, either from the shore or from our farm's reserved row boat for your personal use. The Cannonsville Reservoir is also open to sailing, canoing, and Kayaking (boat must be cleaned for use on the Reservoir). At night, one can look up at the stars and you’ll think you’re in a planetarium. On Spring nights, our pond comes alive with the serene sound of peepers which will lull you to sleep. The farm is truly a beautiful place to stay. Bird watching and wildlife photography is also a favorite past time at the Farm with Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, Wild Turkeys, deer, and other wildlife regularly seen.

Inside the home, make yourself comfortable with a game room (pool and ping pong table), stocked modern kitchen, wood stove, screened in porch, four bedrooms (large master bedroom on the main floor), open living room with exposed wooden hand hewn beams, as well as knotty pine throughout. The house comes with its own chicken coup and you can enjoy fresh eggs every day (don't worry about feeding or caring for the chickens-they have a self waterer and self feeder). If hunting is not your thing, then cozy up to the wood fire and read a book or sip some hot chocolate as you watch the snow falling gently on the fields. Although the farm is isolated, there is free wireless internet, free coast to coast long distance telephone, as well as 2 satellite televisions (50 inch HDTV in master bedroom). We also have one VCR and two DVD players (one hooked to the 50 inch HDTV). House also comes with a water cooler filled with water from our very own spring as well as a Keurig Coffee Maker (pods sold at our local supermarket).

Rate is:

Low Season (January 2nd to June 30)-250 for first night, 250 for second night, and 100 for each additional night. For each person above 8 in party, a 10 percent per day additional fee per person will apply)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My wife and I bought this property in 2007 as a weekend vacation spot. We have been enjoying it ever since. We have improved greatly on the property and friends have told us what a great place the farm would be to rent. We decided then to share our vacation spot with others.
