About Noa and Raphael

We are brother and sister owners of this property.

Noa and Raphael purchased this house in 1973

Why Noa and Raphael chose Catskills

The house was built in the early 70s by our father and is unique in every way. We spent every summer here as the house was constructed around us. We've kept the feel of the original house but have made important useful updates. Many people say that the house is one of the most truly 'Woodstocky' houses around.

What makes this house unique

People love entertaining in this home. It's secluded but not too much so. At night you go to sleep to the sound of the private stream. It's a real getaway. Please be aware that most mobile phones do not receive coverage at the house. Many people see this as a good thing. Our book collection is also a nice feature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking for a mix of the perfect home, perfect land, perfect area, and perfect landlords then look no further. Noa is an absolute delight to interact with and she will set you up with everything you need to know about the home and the local area. The home is a wonderful mix of modernism and country living. I spent a long amazing summer here recently and it was a glorious experience. I don't often wax poetic like this but I can truly say this is a home that is filled with a little love, a little cool, and a lot of heart. If you have the opportunity to stay here DO IT and you will realize the wisdom of my words.

Fun house. Kids loved it. We saw deer everyday. Because of cool weather we enjoyed the fire one night. The sound of the stream renewed my spirit. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Dream Living

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a more "Woodstock" experience. Everything is immaculate and the house has an amazing natural wood smell. Walks in the woods. Nights by the fire. Really amazing.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented "The Big House" as a place for our family to meet up and have a fall weekend out of the city. The house was absolutely perfect! I cannot say enough good things about our stay. The house was clean, warm and had everything we needed. We had the perfect fall weekend away. Thanks Raphael and Noa!

Stunning home, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house to celebrate my parents' 40th anniversary. By the pics I assumed it would be pretty cool, but it was above and beyond what I had imagined. It's a gorgeous, spacious, peaceful, creative space. We had a whole Catskills adventure itinerary planned for the weekend, but honestly we could have stayed in and been just as happy. The house is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the view outside is beautiful from any window or deck spot. It's the kind of place that makes you want an unending morning and a bottomless cup of coffee. Noa is a lovely host with excellent, entertaining advice about the surrounding area.

We will definitely look to rent this house again in the future!

Sanctuary in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, with great design details and attentions. The kitchen was fully equipped with tools, and bathroom is open and spacious. We like to open the window just to listen to the sound of river stream next to the house. We spent 3 days during the Christmas Holiday, and we left the trip with wonderful memories. Thank you Noa, we hope to book the house again in the summer time!

I am tempted to give it 1 star, so I can keep this gem to myself, but in fairness it is worth 10 stars. The home is beautiful and well appointed. It was a great weekend escape from the city!
