about the house: This is an 1800's boarding house remodeled for your comfort and to experience history! The House was the vacation resort in the Catskills.

The country is soothing and fun. We are on an underground lake and enjoy the spring water for drinking and bathing. You will notice the difference in your health and stress level the very first day of your stay! Our little stream along the house provides soothing sound and beautiful setting while relaxing outside on our wrap around decking and comfy chairs. One of our largest decks is through the french doors from the country kitchen where you will find several comfortable tables and chairs & a couple of BBQ's to use. This house is about : ENJOYMENT AND FUN! Some of our guests love it so much they don't even leave the house during their stay.

The North & South Lakes and the famous Haines Falls are two popular features within 10-20 minutes from the house. You may rent Kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, row boats, or just lay in the sun and swim. You may climb the biggest waterfall in NY or just rest in the cool mist from the water.
