About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Fox Ridge, a four season vacation rental in Margaretville, NY. Located on top of the mountain with spectacular views overlooking the pond and the Catskill Forest Preserve on 9 very private acres. Only 2½ hours from New York City, Fox Ridge is an inviting escape for you, your family, and friends.

Come and enjoy our spacious, beautifully furnished contemporary home. Take in the sweeping views of the mountains and large swimming pond from the newly expanded deck or from inside the glass enclosed great room with soaring ceiling and stone fireplace. Enjoy the warmth of a roaring fire on a snowy winter night or on a cool summer evening. Come in the fall and take in the brilliant color display across the valley or rejuvenate in the spring with new life around you.

Eat in, cook on the grill or try one of the many excellent area restaurants. Spend an evening at home playing pool or watching a movie on one of the flat screen TVs. Relax in the hot tub under the stars or roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Swim or kayak in the pond, dive in from the dock or go hiking on one of the easily accessible trails. Finish up the day in our new outdoor shower.

Try your hand at flyfishing on a clean mountain stream or golf at one of the nearby courses. Belleayre Mountain offers excellent skiing for the entire family in the winter and outdoor concerts in the summer. All of these activities and more are within minutes of the house.

The 3 level house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The bedrooms are furnished with extra comfy beds and fine linens. There are two bedrooms with queen beds and one with twins, comfortably accommodating 6 people. In the lower level there is an extra large sectional sofa big enough to sleep 2 children. Come with your family and friends or enjoy a romantic getaway for 2.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Margaretville, NY, USA:
We live in northern New Jersey and it only takes us 2 hours to get to the house. Margaretville offers a real 'downtown' with nice homes, many shops, and restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can feel the tension melt away as you get closer to the house. The feeling of privacy and peace is amazing. As you pull down the long drive the view to the pond and mountains opens up and it's all yours. We have a black lab that seems to live in the pond as soon as we arrive at the property. You can do as little or as much as you like, activities abound. A fire at night in the fire pit with a full moon, a million stars, and the mountains silhouetted and reflected in the pond is incredible.
