Phoenicia studio description

Your perfect Fall romantic hideaway for two!

Luxurious studio cottage with private entrance and 6 person hot tub in its own courtyard. Feels secluded, but only 2 minutes stroll to little town of Phoenicia- recently voted one of the six coolest small towns in the US by Budget Travel Magazine!

2 minutes walk from restaurants, cafes and stores in Phoencia. This studio is architect designed with attention to detail- beautiful cedar lofted ceiling with skylights, bamboo floors and glass doors overlooking a lovely secluded bluestone courtyard . Super comfortable memory foam Queen bed and fold out futon. Wi fi, free Netflix movies via Roku and free long distance phone add to the allure. You'll love your own private hot tub in the studio's courtyard offering uninterrupted views of the stars. Perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway or small family.

No car needed- Trailways bus direct from the Port Authority in NYC will land you within a couple of minutes walk from the studio.

Studio has a very basic little kitchenette with toaster, fridge, coffee maker and microwave and a few utensils. We are not set up for cooking as most guests eat at Brios and Mama's Boy only a couple of minutes walk from the studio, or venture out a few minutes to have breakfast at the fabulous new Phoenicia Diner on Route 28 or dinner at the Peekamoose in Big Indian. Brios has great wood fired pizzas, and Ricciardella's has the classier cuisine. The Peekamoose for locally sourced produce cooked with love and flair in a beautiful setting. The world class Emerson resort and Spa is three minutes away and boasts the wonderful Phoenix restaurant as well as offering an array of spa treatments. Enjoy a latte and free wi fi at Mama's Boys Coffee Shop. Ask about more dining options- we're happy to make recommendations. Basic self catering items can be purchased on the corner in the Phoenicia Supermarket.

Miles of pristine hiking trails await. The wonderful Tannbark Trail easily accessible from behind the studio from the back of the Parish Field. Hike 20 minutes to the top of the Mountain for great views of Phoenicia and surrounding mountains- if you're feeling fit, continue on the loop for another hour or so to experience woods, cliffs, little waterfalls and pure streams.

Phoenicia is Old World Americana- a hidden gem of a town on the verge of rediscovery.

Rent a bike at Mike's Bikes or find something surprising at The Mystery Spot or The Home Store. Monthly art openings at the Arts Upstairs are a blast and classic movies and home grown theater take center stage at the Shandaken Theatrical Society Theater.Take a train ride along the Esopus Creek from the Railway Museum just around the corner. The annual Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, founded by the owner , opera singer Kerry Henderson, transforms our little town into a hub for the vocal arts in early August.

Walk five minutes in any direction, and you are in the middle of unbridled wilderness. Wonderful hiking accessible from behind our property, swimming across the street in the Esopus Creek, cross country skiing, snow tubing trout fishing, seasonal festivals, you name it!.

A haven for lovers, writers, artists, musicians, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I'm an opera singer, gallery owner and arts festival organizer. I'm originally from New Zealand. I started the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice in the field behind our home four years ago and this has grown to become one of the most successful arts events in the region each summer. My wife, Bex is from Scotland and is a storyteller and actress and we have two young children, Rosa and Edrick. We've lived in many places throughout the world and consider the Catskills to be one of the most beautiful areas we have ever had the pleasure to spend time.
