  • Magical

    "My boyfriend and I were looking to get away from the noise and stressful life of the city. Lo and behold, we were able to find the perfect place. Mirav's cottage is to die for. The perfect word to describe this place is "magical". It's secluded and peaceful. We never saw a single soul the entire time we were there. The fireplace and jacuzzi were extraordinary. You can tell that Mirav put a lot of time and effort into making this home spectacular, and she definitely achieved that. My boyfriend is a wonderful cook, so the kitchen was one of the highlights for him. It was very spacious and light seeps through the skylights above making it the perfect atmosphere to cook. For entertainment, there are games, puzzles, bose sound system, Vizio LCD as well, so if you have a Netflix account you can cuddle up on the couch and watch whatever you want. There's also a beautiful patio where you can lay down and get a tan (it was raining so we couldn't do that). Another highlight was Mirav's super grill. You can make some incredible burgers on that thing! The 3 days we were there felt like heaven and really felt like home as well. I caught myself calling it "home" when we went out to dinner at the nearby Red Onion. Your in touch with nature, and you really forget how peaceful life can be when you don't have to deal with the stresses of the city. If you want to get away from it all, this is the perfect place. Thanks Mirav!"

  • Large House, Great Fishing, Responsive Owner

    "My extended family of 9 adults, 2 children, and 4 dogs spent a week this August at Lago House. INSIDE: The house is very "utilitarian"- not a lot of "homey" extras, very simple décor. That being said, there was room for everyone with the 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The bathrooms were acceptable in cleanliness as were the bedrooms. The downstairs family room and bedrooms were quite musty smelling when we arrived, but that was easily rectified by opening some windows and emptying the dehumidifier so it would continue to run. The children appreciated the big TV and couch in the downstairs family room on the rainy days to watch the Disney channel. The biggest con inside was probably the kitchen. Several of the cabinet drawers were broken, there may have been mouse poop in one, the dishwasher hardly cleaned any dishes (even after they had been rinsed), and I discovered a leak under the sink on check-out day. It could use some maintenance. Some supplies were lacking- there were only 6 coffee mugs and 8 forks to be found. I ended up donating 4 mugs I bought at the Walmart in Oneonta (20 miles away) to the cause. We used the stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, washer, dryer & propane grill with no issue. (We did not use the hot tub so I cannot comment on that.) OUTSIDE: The location is quite rural as described in the listing- best to be prepared and bring your supplies with you. It is quite a ways to get to any store! The large yard was great for ladder golf and football. The swings were used for hours on end. The firepit down by the water was great for smores and corn roasted on the coals. The lake is small, but the fishing was quite good. Our group caught several large bass, crappie, and pickerel, as well as perch and blue gills (all catch & release). The rowboats were in good repair and were used several times daily. As for swimming, a couple of our group swam in the middle of the lake from the kayaks we brought along. The lake frontage of the camp and area around the dock was quite congested with weeds, algae, and the like. None of us were willing to sink our feet into that! And a word of caution- the deck gets slippery when wet with rain. Be careful on the stairs! OVERALL: Lago House was large enough for our group and accepted pets. The fishermen enjoyed the offerings of Titus Lake. There are some areas that could use some improvement, but none that kept us from enjoying our vacation together. My boys say they would love to go back!"

  • Recharge Your Batteries!

    "As our first VRBO rental, the process could not have been easier! Barbara was very informative and accommodating to a last minute schedule change. The home was immaculate upon arrival!! There were pamphlets with suggestions of things to do, and we enjoyed our time at the farm. Kids loved the trail and bike riding around the property. We visited the County Fair and enjoyed visiting with the very talkative chickens. The fire pit was a great way to end each day and enjoy spending family time together. Dont forget your telescope for stargazing!! We had a lot of fun with the cookstove in the kitchen! In fact the kitchen was so well equipped, we did not eat one meal out! We enjoyed preparing all of the local meats and produce we found. The house itself was cozy and we felt very at home. We only had a couple of instances where we needed to contact Eleanor and Scott, and they provided immediate help. We look forward to returning!"

Catskill Travel Tips

Live Like a Local in Catskill Vacation Rentals

You can live like a local in Catskill vacation rentals and enjoy the hospitality of your friendly neighbors. Enjoy cooking-in at night, rather than eating-out during your vacation, in the full-service kitchen of your vacation rental. If you need a night on the town, take your partner to the Swan Lake Golf and Country Club for an amazing steak dinner. Wake up the next day refreshed and ready to golf 18 holes at the Tarry Brae Golf Course in Sullivan County. There is so much for you to do during a trip to Catskill that you may never get to enjoy the luxury of your vacation rental!

Catskill Resorts Are an Exciting Option for Couples

Catskill resorts, ideally located for day trips and outdoor fun, are a wonderful choice for couples who need time away from their everyday routines and big city complications. Take your spouse to the Tennanah Lake Golf & Tennis Club for the Olympic-size pool and professional tennis lessons. Couples will enjoy dancing on the town at night, and strolling through the Basha Kill Wildlife Management Area to see the native wildlife.

Enjoy a Retreat in Catskills Cabins

Catskills cabins afford families, couples, groups and bachelor parties, an opportunity for a unique retreat away from busy city life. Catskill Pheasantry allows visitors the chance to hunt, shoot clays, and receive gun dog training. Families will love visiting the Breezeway Farm in the Catskills area to see the turkeys, donkeys, geese, goats, and miniature ponies. Children are able to ride the ponies at the Farm, and to take photographs of all of the animals. A trip to Catskill, New York is just what is needed for people who are stressed out with their busy lives, and ready for a breath of fresh air!
