Andes cabin description

Cathedral ceiling, balcony, wood stove, deck, dsl, wifi, all new appliances:from washer/dryer to coffee grinder to Saki cups, trails run through my properties past organic plantings of fruit, nut trees and hundreds of plantings that support the abundant wildlife (from bluebirds to eagles), access my pond, 2 streams, adjoins thousands of acres of the 20 mile long reservoir, on which I have a boat available to you for fishing, & as of May 2012 will be open for kayaking, canoeing, & removable keel sailboats—must register craft with DEP & have them cleaned & receive sticker. Hiking willl also be expanded on reservoir property. Wonderful hiking throughout the area as well as biking along the quiet roads, you lookout upon the mountains of the forever wild Catskill Park, yet only 12 minutes from the delightful village of Andes with shops, restaurants & galleries. Several lakes for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, plus a pool in the Village. Kayak & canoeing now available in other NYC reservoirs.

Take great hikes starting at the front door or throughout the Catskill Park which begins on the other side of the reservoir offering trails of varying degrees of difficulty. The quiet winding road that runs below my properties is a favorite for bicyclists--it is 14 miles from my cabin to the end of the road in Downsville and you will only pass 7 homes along the way.

My other house is the nearest dwelling--a hundred yards away and tucked behind spruce trees. You are welcome to share my pond and walk the trails to discover little natural events. (Should I have this home rented you would need to have the permission of those rentee's to have access.) Have a large group? Rent both of my homes (12 maximum)--see my other listing on this site 138687.

5 ski resorts in the area as well a snow tubing. Bring snowshoes & crampons for the Catskill trails. Several rivers offer good kayaking and canoeing, while the Beaverkill is a world class fly fishing stream. Or just curl up by the fire with a book and beverage of choice. In summer sit on the deck and watch fireflies dance under a star studded sky, I hope you find this a comfortable mountain retreat to recharge & reconnect.
