About the Property

3 bedroom farmhouse with large wrap-around porch on 2 acres in the woods!

Surrounded by 1000s of acres in the Catskill Park, near Belleayre and Plattekill Ski Center, hiking, hunting, fishing, shopping, eating! Belle Ayre House was once the post office, town hall and home to 4 generations of my family. Our home comfortably accommodates families, couples or anyone just looking to get away from it all. We even have a fireplace in dining room to make your stay super cozy!

Our home is an old farmhouse that has been renovated to include new features, such as stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, fireplace, walk-in shower, flat screen tvs, etc. The home still maintains the charm of years past, with antiques and heirlooms throughout the home.

The entire house is accessible to all guests, except for the basement and attic.

The Property Manager is available as needed by phone, email or in person.

Our home is located in a rural setting, surrounded by mountains and streams. It's the perfect place to get away from it all. Many hiking trails can be accessed within a 5 minute drive. Belleayre Ski Center is only 15 minutes away and there are restaurants, antique shops and farmers markets for your dining and shopping pleasure located in the towns of Margaretville, Andes and Pine Hill.

A car is necessary for visiting our area. Public transit is very limited.

Enjoy your stay!

Guests have access to the entire home, except for the basement, garage and attic.

I love the long and winding road through the mountains, along the stream. It's quiet, peaceful, and perfect for relaxing. A hike to the Balsam Lake Fire Tower is a must! It's just right up the road and offers a 360 degree view of the mountains!

Public transit is very limited. NY Trailways bus comes to Margaretville, but you'll need a car to get to the house.

Enjoy your stay!
