Aunt's Place is a newly renovated historic home located in the Catskill Park 2hrs from NYC in Olivebridge NY. This home was built to board the laborers who built the Ashokan Reservoir. The renovation was done to preserve some of the original findings in the home during the renovation process.

The home is walking distance from the reservoir where you could enjoy the amenities offered or just relax and enjoy the peacefulness of our small town.

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to this tranquil home. Our hosts were wonderful, as always, and very helpful with anything put to them. No matter what you want to do, from sitting and just relaxing or hiking the reservior or the mountain trails near by, this is the place to do it from. I and my friends left feeling relaxed and ready to go back to the regular day to day of our lives.

Charming and immaculate house. Friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Aunt's Place. First off the house was sparkling clean when we got there. Everything was neat and tidy, no clutter. The living room couches were comfortable. The kitchen was clean and functional. We were pleasantly surprised to see that our hosts thoughtfully stocked the fridge with bottled spring water.

Upstairs were 2 cozy bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable. The air condition is in the hallway but we left the doors open and had fans in each bedroom. The bathroom was clean and tastefully decorated.

The house was stocked with books and games - a nice bonus that we didn't count on! The owner Ray was very friendly and made sure we had what we needed. He was pleasant to shmooze with and told us the history of the house and everything there is to do in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back one day!

Beautiful property and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with location and cleanliness/comfort of this small home. Only negatives were 1 bathroom only on second floor and overly strong scent of cleaning product that took 2 days to dissipate.

Would stay there again and just ask that they skip the scented product. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, comfortable newly renovated two bedroom home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our weekend getaway at this lovely, immaculate, well decorated and historic home. We entered the home to a nicely burning gas fireplace and a welcome bottle of wine – the owners could not have been more accommodating. Everything in the house is new, and the home was very comfortable. We went for a walk along the Ashokan Reservoir that was just down the road. We spent some time at Woodstock which is not far. We had a nice dinner at the Reservoir Inn which we would recommend if you stay in the area. We are looking forward to staying there again next time we are in the area.

Warm & cozy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My parents restored and own Aunt's Place. What a cozy great place to stay. We really enjoy staying during the winter because of the close proximity to the local ski areas.

Thanks Mom & Dad
