Ellenville house description

Located on a quiet country lane in the Catskill Park, this house is a perfect getaway, just two hours north from the GW bridge. Our beautiful, newly renovated, modern country house features an open floor plan on the first floor with a fully stocked cook's kitchen and bar counter, 12 person expandable dining table, a sitting area and a full bath just off the kitchen. The main room has 3 skylights and 2 french doors that provide plenty of light even on rainy days. The second floor has a half bath, master bedroom with a king size bed and en suite bathroom with spa shower, a bedroom with a queen size bed, and a third bedroom with a toddler bed and twin size bed with trundle that converts to a king size bed. There is a pool table and foosball table in the unfinished garage and an upright piano and cabinet full of board games in the main room. Wireless internet is available if you want to stay connected but when you arrive you will just want to sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet wonder of it all.


Outside is a large deck and an above ground pool (does it really matter if it's above ground - it's a pool!). The deck box houses all sorts of outdoor games including badminton and volleyball. There is also an outdoor woodburning fireplace - great way to stay warm in the evenings while marveling at the gazillion stars in the sky. Don't forget the hot chocolate and smores! Beyond the deck is a large open field on two acres populated with century old apple trees and swing sets for kids and adults.

                                  Location

                                  The house is close to year round activities including hiking trails at Sam's Point Preserve (20 mins), Minnewaska State Park (20 mins), or Mohonk Mountain Preserve (25 mins). Many of the trails are old carriage trails so it is great for hiking with kids. Horseback riding is available year round. The Shawungunk Wine Trail includes 12 vineyards and wineries of the Hudson Valley and is just 20 mins away www.shawangunkwinetrail.com. Amazing culinary experiences in Kerhonkson, Rosendale and Stoneridge are about 20 minutes away.

                                  In the Fall, against the backdrop of vibrant foliage, pick your own fruit at the many local orchards. Stone Ridge Orchard, about 25 minutes away is an orchard we particularly love. In the winter, cross country and downhill skiing and ice climbing are available in Belleayre, Hunter and Windham, about 45 mins away.

                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: We are a family of four with two young kids. We love to get away from the City for a relaxing weekend at our house. Our 4 year old daughter aptly calls our weekends in the Catskills 'an escape from the City'.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Ellenville:
                                  We started taking weekend trips to the Catskills many years ago and just fell in love with the beauty of the area. We started looking for a weekend place after we got married. As we were driving up Lackawack Hill Road the first time and feeling the openness of the mountain top, we knew the property would be right even before we saw it. It was a bright, sunny Spring day, the grass was green, the air was crisp and it just felt right. The house needed some work (which turned out to be a lot of work) but it's all worth it when our kids tell us how much they love going to the Catskills.
