Property description

The cares of the world will totally disappear as you arrive and become part of a unique and tranquil surrounding that will revitalize your senses.

This magnificent property of 114 acres of trees, hills and meadows encircle the house which fronts a four and half acre lake surrounded by landscaped gardens. There is also a one acre pond with its own island. Streams and waterfalls run throughout the property. Sunbathe, row a boat or fish during the day --light a campfire or take a night walk and listen to the frogs and crickets. You can hike the 114 acres or the adjoining 650 acre NYC forest preserve.

The lake is suitable for swimming. The area around the dock has a sandy bottom allowing easy access to the water without having to wade through a mud bottom. There is a raft in the middle of the lake which you can swim to or sun bathe on.

A row boat and canoe is available for your use. Fishing is permitted. The lake contains large and smallmouth bass perch, catfish and crappies. The small 1 acre pond is home to our 'pet' rainbow trout. We call them our 'pets' as we feed them. It's something that the our guests enjoy doing once a day.

The log cabin home is approximately 200 feet from the lake. The log cabin has knotty pine wood throughout. The kitchen and both bathrooms have been completely renovated. The kitchen has new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops. The wall between the kitchen and living room was removed, creating a great room that is at once larger yet more involving. The upstairs bathroom has a new glass block window and tub. The tub area has been tiled and the vanity has a granite countertop. The downstairs bathroom features a new glass enclosed tiled shower, floor and refurnished walls.

The living room contains a stone fireplace for those cool evenings. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs with an added daybed in the downstairs lounge area.The house can accommodate eight people. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The third has a day bed that, when opened, can sleep two comfortably. The downstairs lounge area can accommodate two comfortably as well.

Tennis, golf, biking and antique shopping begin within a five minute drive. Attractions include: Belleayre Mountain and Plattekill ski resorts, summer concerts, Roxbury Arts Center, and Hannah Golf Resort, to name a few. Bethel Wood is a little over one hour away. The property is located two miles from Margaretville which has a large supermarket, hospital, stores, banks, gas stations and restaurants.

House ammenities include wireless internet, cell phone service, free long distance in continental USA and cable television. We have Apple TV, so you can access HBO GO and Showtime Anytime. If you have Netflix or an iTunes account, you can down load movies directly without having to go into town to rent a movie.

Keywords: Woods, fields, streams and pond: 2 1/2 hour drive from NYC. Year round beauty and activities. Fall foliage, winter skiing, spring hiking, summer swimming and boating.
