Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to thank Kevin for his terrific hospitality. The house was awesome. Loved the view of the lake. Excellent bicycle riding around the lake and surrounding areas. It was close to Monticello Raceway and all other Catskills attractions.

The house has everything you need for a memorable stay. The owner really wants his guests to have a terrific time. When the cable television service did not have the channel I wanted he offered to have the cable company install new equipment to get that channel. I declined since I was only there for three days but I did tell Kevin how much I appreciated the offer.

I can't wait for my next visit to this beautiful house and the Catskills.

Absolutely fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin was the best HomeAway host we could have ever asked for. Before we even arrived he was sending link after link of activities taking place in the area for us to check out. The house was so charming, spacious, clean, and made for the perfect winter getaway. The lake was gorgeous and we had such a great experience getting snowed in and having to stay an extra night. Kevin was so gracious and was concerned about our safety so he gave us our extra snowed in night free of charge which was too kind.

In summary: The location was picturesque. The house was adorable. Kevin was fantastic to work with. Anyone looking for a little winter (or summer) escape will be extremely happy they chose to stay here.

Wonderful Lakehome

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two kids, wife and in-laws. Everyone had enough space to spread out. The place is very welcoming and feels like a home away from home. The lighting was perfect. Outdoor lights and indoor lights are on a timer, so you never walk into a dark home. The place is setup very well for traveling with a family. Our kids had fun playing in the basement. I will most definitely stay here again when visiting Monticello.

Beautiful Home

  • 3 of 5

I wanted to give a 5 star rating for this lovely home, however I felt I couldn't because the sofa bed was broken so my daughter and son in law had to sleep on an air mattress, since my daughter has back problems this was a hardship for her. Once that sofa bed is replaced the house will be perfect. It is a lovely house on a beautiful spot. The house was very clean and stocked with all you need. Kevin was very attentive to our needs, he was very easy to reach with any questions I had. My family had a very nice time while enjoying the house and it's surroundings.

The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.

In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few. The continue to add top artists each summer / fall seasons. Lawn chair rentals make it affordable for all.

If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum. This museum is quite the unexpected treat. Original artifacts, music, history, movie clips and much more. Group tours given on Saturdays. Easy 1 to 2 hour tour. See the actual festival site, hills and ponds.
