Margaretville farmhouse description

This house has been in my family for 4 generations. It used to be the Belle Ayre Post Office and later, the Town Clerk's office. Surrounded by thousands of acres of Catskill Park, Belle Ayre House is the perfect escape! A large wrap-around porch greets you as you arrive-perfect for watching sunsets or a summer rain. Inside, the dining room with fireplace is just the spot for cozy dinners. The modern kitchen has everything needed for preparing meals. 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms upstairs let you sleep in peace and quiet, hearing only the sound of the stream in summer. 2 large bathrooms: one with vintage clawfoot tub and radiant heat in the floor; the other has a large walk-in shower. Plenty of cozy nooks to sit and read or take a nap. Full size washer & dryer in laundry room. Outside, a bonfire pit behind the house is perfect for roasting marshmallows and telling campfire stories. Enjoy strolls up or down the road. Lots of wildlife and beauty to be seen. Just up the road (3 miles) is the trailhead to the Balsam Mountain Fire Tower. This is not to be missed in any season! 360 degree views from the top of the tower! Belleayre Ski Center is a 15 minute drive. Grocery store and restaurants are all 15 minutes away as well. We look forward to your stay at Belle Ayre House!
