Property description

Stone vacation home in the center of the Catskills.
Renting by the week or the Month calendar depending.

Magnificent stone and cedar home built in 1918 and lovingly renovated over the last twenty years. Historic feel of the days of boarding houses, timbering hemlocks and quarrying for bluestone. All the stone in the home comes from the creek across the road! Central stone double fireplace (two sided), with a woodstove. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sunroom - which is a perfect breakfast room, with picture window views of the forest and the base of the mountain behind the house. We have seen wild turkeys and deer through this view numerous times. The home has a grand bluestone porch that is wonderful for hanging out in the hammock or on the hanging swing style loveseat. Sounds of the mountain creek and nature all around. The road has a state campground at the end 3 miles away with hiking trails to the surrounding summits with views of the NYC reservoir and the Hudson river. Or a 4 mile drive or bicycle ride into town where you can find one of the best breakfasts you'll ever have at the Phoenicia Diner on Rt 28.

House is perfect for three - four couples or an extended family or friends. We provide firewood for the cool nights, a high speed internet connection with wifi, and a Japanese style soaking tub. If you are looking for a unique mission style and timeless getaway home that reminds one of the peacefulness and times of a century ago, this is your place.

$1999 per week/ $4999 month (discounted winter rate available) all inclusive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I am a furniture designer and partner in an accessory and lighting company based in Ohio. The home has many of my furniture pieces in it and all are available to order as well should you decide you like them during your stay. I love the outdoors setting of the house and have spent many important life moments and events at the home. It is a special part of my life and I hope you will appreciate the place as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Phoenicia, NY, USA:
This place has a magical feel and you may very well fall in love with the home after spending a few nights there. Many guests do not want to leave! You have to experience this special valley and all its enchantments that also drew the likes of John Burroughs and Washington Irving to the area. This home was built around 1918 and restored by myself over the last 30 years. Much of the original woodwork and stone work remains but improvements have been made as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With seven bedrooms and a big eating area, the home is perfect for a family or a group of friends. The porch is wonderful in the Summer as a place to catch a breeze and hang out.
