Andes cottage description

Sweet, secluded one-room schoolhouse in the hills outside Andes, NY. Cozy house, trickling stream, sparkling pond. Relax on the deck near the old apple tree. Hike in the gloriously green woods, swim in one of the nearby recreational pools or ponds, relax, stargaze, dream, smile! Grill steaks or veggies on the big Weber and eat on the deck under blue sky or big, shady umbrella. There's also a chef-equipped kitchen and a fire pit on the property for weenie and marshmallow roasts. A queen bed sleeps two in a bright lofted bedroom, filled with art. Start your novel at the writer's desk, curl up on the comfy sofa or the outside chaise and read a book. The home is equipped with wireless internet and has local phone service but no cable TV or cell service - a perfect excuse to play hooky from the world! The town of Andes, 2.5 hours from the George Washington Bridge, and neighboring hamlets, offer farmers' markets, shops, restaurants, yoga classes and lots of charm. This schoolhouse rocks!


The area:: You'll be just minutes outside of Andes - a wonderfully gentrified village with unique shopping and dining, a summer farmers' market, sparkling town pool and newly surfaced tennis courts. The house is a short drive from Margaretville, Delhi or Hamden, offering easy access to local farmers' meats and vegetables, a whole foods market, and lots more shopping and recreation, including a golf course and Catskill Park hiking trails. Just down the hill, the East Branch of the Delaware River boasts great fishing and kayaking.

Visit us!: Apple A Day is available for a minimum of a two night stay. Included are fresh linens, high-speed wireless internet access, local phone, hot and cold water, lighting, electric heat and firewood. Pets are welcome. Pricing is effective for rentals booked after March 1, 2011. This is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a creative solo retreat - carefree, private and well groomed, yet out in nature. It's your forget-it-all fieldtrip waiting to happen.

Arrival, departure and payment:: Check in/out times for a typical weekend is Friday after 5pm arrival, to a Sunday noon departure. We try to be flexible with your arrival/departure if you can be flexible with our cleaning schedule.

The security deposit is 30% of the total rental amount and is required to reserve the rental. The full amount of the rental is required 10 days prior to the start of the rental period. Cancellations will have a full refund, less a $50 administrative fee, if they are received at least 30 days prior to the start of the rental. Cancellations received within 30 days of the rental start will have half the deposit refunded.

Rentals under a week will have Delaware County sales tax of 8 percent added.

A $65 cash cleaning fee must be left at the house at the end of the rental.

Holiday rates cover Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's weekends. Apple A Day is closed from mid-January through March.
