Stunning, high-quality building has created the ultimate retreat set on 17 acres w/ meadow, water and mountain sunset views. Exquisitely detailed throughout; marble sinks, mahogany doors, custom stairs, finely polished hickory floors, 4 BRs, 2.5 luxury baths with an eye on the past, open plan main floor (includes library nook), 2 wood stoves, custom Shaker kitchen, DR, double height areas and radiant heat floors. Screened, wrap porch leads to an impressive three season cedar spa tub. A lot of house for the money.

Museums like Bronk, Olana, towns like Coxsackie, Westerlo, Athens, New Baltimore and Tannersville, produce stands, nifty old cemeteries, falling down centuries-old barns and swimming holes abound. There's nothing like the Catskills any time of the year.

2 night min/3 on holidays. Approx 115 miles from GWB. Come see us soon, we'd love to host you in Medusa.
