Relax, hike, golf, shop for antiques, or try fly fishing for fresh trout in one of the spring fed mountain streams. There are several quaint small towns nearby to explore, shop and have lunch. A must-see is Opus 40, one man's incredible life earth-work sculpture.
About the owner: My partner and I purchased this house in 1997 as a weekend escape from Manhattan. We have worked hard on it over the years to create a home, a place where we could go to unwind and relax. Due to work we left New York and currently reside in Atlanta. Since it is difficult for us to get to the Catskills we have decided to rent our home for the first time. This is not a typical party house rental, it is and continues to be home for us. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have, and still do. There is a caretaker for the house nearby who looks over the premises and is nearby to handle any needs that may arise.
