Property description

See more at theoakhillhouse(dot)com RATE WILL INCREASE BY $25 PER PERSON PER NIGHT OVER 4 PEOPLE.

Enjoy true rustic luxury and experience the history of our country by staying in a house built a few years after the American revolution. It’s the perfect place to gather friends and family because this spacious home never feels crowded.

The Oak Hill House is furnished in the Catskills Country Style with a comfortable and eclectic mix of antique and modern pieces. It has four bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, two full bathrooms, a bar complete with mystery library, a large kitchen and formal dining room, which features an antique harvest table that comfortably seats ten.

Though this house will take you on an exciting journey to the past, it features modern enjoyments such as a FiveStar pro range, large DVD library, audiophile sound system, cable WiFi, Lazy Man grill on the stone patio, and a Brazilian slate spa shower, and ladies' bath complete with restored antique claw foot tub.


Prime Catskill Location: The Oak Hill House sits at the intersection of the Catskill and Mill Creeks in the historic hamlet of Oak Hill, which is only 2.5 hours from New York City. This section of Greene County is the most beautiful in the Catskills with rolling green hills and numerous streams.

Oak Hill is only 25 minutes from Hudson, NY, where you can have a world class dining and shopping experience.

Of course, the great beauty of the Catskills is at your doorstep: breathtaking views, hiking, boating, trout fishing, or skiing at Wyndam Mountain only 30 minutes away.

This house has a southern exposure so you can watch the sun travel over the Catskill Mountains followed by the moon. Gather on the patio or descend the stairs to sit creekside and enjoy a fire while you sit under the stars.
