Victor, Flynn and basset hound Mason and I live in Washington Heights in Manhattan. We are both actors who have about 20 Law and Order episodes between us! Victor also teaches acting and I am a sales agent with Halstead Properties on the UWS. I moved to NYC from the Mountains of TN and when I was searching for a property I was drawn to the Catskill Mountains.
Kelly purchased this House in 2005
Why Kelly chose Ulster County
We first got a tiny cabin in the woods in this charming village of Phoenicia. We then upgraded to this lovely house so that we could share it family and friends. We love renting our out our home and have found that 90% of our guests are repeat visitors! We love being in this area as it an all season home. Plenty to do in Summer and Winter. I find that I end up hanging out just enjoying the solitude that the mountains bring.
What makes this House unique
Our screened in porch and goldfish pond are two of my most favorite things about this house. In addition there is plenty of room for family and friends to come and visit. The fireplace in a winter snow is spectacular as you can look out on the falling snow through our huge windows. Our home is slowly being upgraded and we like to keep our guests in mind when doing our updating. We recently updated the kitchen and are in the process of designing a new lower level to incorporate a great playroom for kids and adults!!

Cozy mountain house
Our family has been seasonal (winter) renters of this home for the past 3 years. It is cozy and well-stocked with great views, and has lots of different places to hang out for large families (we have 9 people; kids aged 3-17). Kelly (the landlord) is so easy to work with, and is very quick to respond to any questions or issues that may arise. We skied at Belleayre Mountain every weekend, which is a quick 15 minute drive. I would highly recommend this property for a weekend (or longer) getaway for families.
I love having you!! You are fantastic guests!
We had a great time!
Thanks Kelly, it was a perfect family vacation! Looking forward to another stay!!
Happy to have you back anytime!
A great place!
We've been coming here for several years. It's a large and comfortable house in a beautiful setting, 20 minutes from Woodstock, 5 minutes from Phoenicia, and with great places for fishing, mountain lakes and trails nearby. Just sitting on the deck enjoying the view, feeding koi in the fish pond, or reading by a warm fire all add up to a terrific stay that is only enhanced by Kelly, who is a gracious and charming host. We highly recommend it.
As usual, the perfect house guests!! I am so thrilled you love our house as much as we do!!
Fantastic! Better than we could have imagined!
The pictures don't do this place justice! It was absolutely perfect for our family weekend. We had everything we needed and more to make the weekend fun and memorable for everyone, even the little ones! Thank you so much for having us. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay!! Thank you for the lovely review. Come back anytime.
Absolutely enjoyed our stay. Would go back and revisit. Hosts are very accommodating, responsive, and care about their customers.
Thank you so much!! I am thrilled you had a nice time. Please come back again!
Great place and host
The house was big, comfy, quiet, well decorated, on beautiful property, and a quick ride to town. The host was very responsive throughout our stay. The screened in porch was wonderful.
