Come enjoy a relaxing time in our cozy renovated country farmhouse located in the beautiful rolling hills of the northern Catskills. We're only about 3 1/2 hours from New York City, but are truly a world away!

For your group of six or less, our house has three bedrooms, 1 full bath and 1 half bath with a fully equipped kitchen featuring both a modern gas stove and a 1926 Glenwood cookstove. There's a dining room for evening meals and a cozy table by the wood stove in the kitchen. This is a house where you can put up your feet and just relax!

You'll find that our house is the perfect location for exploring the outdoors...whether by a walk or a bike ride on the Catskill Scenic Trail, a day trip to Cooperstown, or a night-time bonfire in the fire pit on the hill above the house. Or maybe you're just looking to relax? Settle in with a good book you picked out at one of the local used bookstores or watch that movie you been saving for a quiet day. So...lots to do if you want to....but only if you want to!

                                                          Impression was very positive

                                                          Viktor M.Castleton on Hudson, NY

                                                          House was very neat and as we expected. Kids enjoyed their new rooms and get used to a house very fast. We spent significant time outside walking of Catskill scenic trail, making bonfire etc. Homeowner was nearby in the neighboring house and was very attentive and accommodating. Thank you Barbara for a nice 6-day vacation.

                                                          A wonderful stay in the farmhouse

                                                          Laura D.

                                                          We spent six snowy days in the farmhouse and it was delightful. The house is every bit as pretty as the pictures illustrate. It was as neat as a pin when we arrived. The family who lives next door made a point to give us our privacy, but was available if we had any questions. I would add one thing to the online description. This is a beautiful part of the country. There are mountains all around with beautiful old barns tucked between. Behind the house is a gorgeous trail that allows you to pass by some extraordinary scenery complete with shaggy horses in the field , friendly cows waiting at the fence and ducks swimming in a pond. It was perfect!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thank you Laura! You certainly had '"picture perfect" snowy winter weather for your stay - something that many guests hope for but aren't lucky enough to have happen! You are certainly correct about it being beautiful -- wait until you (hopefully) see it in the summertime!

                                                          Cozy farm house with a wood stove kitchen

                                                          pablo g.

                                                          The perfect getaway farm house, we had a short stay but planning to come back. The wood oven kitchen stove was the star of the weekend, we cooked all our meals there and they came out delicious. ( I am a chef and very experienced cooking with fire) and yes the fresh farm eggs were a plus.

                                                          Another pleasant stay at Rich Country Farmhouse

                                                          Rob A.

                                                          We are return customers and had another good stay at Rich Country Farmhouse.

                                                          We had originally intended to ski at nearby Plattekill or Belleayre, but heavy rain and temperatures in the high 60s kind of derailed those plans.

                                                          We wound up touring local bookshops, checking out maple sugaring at one of the largest sugarhouses around, walking the trail out back of the house and getting in some horseback riding in the spring-like temperatures.

                                                          We will be back again.

                                                          Fantastic! Relaxing! Peaceful!

                                                          The house was clean, well organized and fully equipped with all necessary incidentals provided for. The home furnishings were nicely reflective of a very receptive atmosphere. We listened to music and watched DirectTV television. The farmland provided us with beautiful scenery. The mountain air was clean and a pleasure to inhale.

                                                          A very special place.

                                                          Jonathan F.Brooklyn, NY

                                                          The house is welcoming, comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. The land and farm surroundings are fascinating, historic and very beautiful. The trail behind the house is perfect for daily exercise. An authentic country experience. I would definitely go again.
