About the area:
New York's Catskill Mountains include one of the largest and most complex natural areas in the East - on par with the West's Yellowstone National Park. Round, forested mountains; narrow, winding valleys; rushing streams and rivers are features that attract many to the 600,000 acres of the Catskill Park.

One of the best kept New York State secrets is Bear Spring Mountain Campground, well-known for its excellent hunting and fishing, as well as its facilities for campers with horses. A good multi-use trail system for hiking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling also is available.

The Catskill Fish Hatchery near Livingston Manor is open to the public. Catskill streams offer some of the finest trout fishing in the East.

Among the best known waters are Esopus, Beaverkill and Willowemoc creeks. Each year, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation stocks fingerling and yearling trout throughout the Catskills.

Rolling hills, forested mountains, ponds, streams and historic sites can all be found within the Catskill Park.

Some of the Catskill campgrounds are open in the spring for early fishing and camping, and in the fall for hunting and autumn foliage viewing.

In the high peaks of the Central Catskills, a different kind of ski experience welcomes you: Belleayre Mountain and Forest Preserve skiing.

It's a world of difference. Belleayre Mountain lies in the heart of the Catskill Forest Preserve on 'forever wild' land, unblemished by the blare and glare of commercialization. The mountain and its 33 trails are expertly maintained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Location

35.7 Miles
Nearest Motorway
I87
12.6 Miles
Nearest Ski
Hunter Mt.

Car: Necessary

Great location for skiers, only about 20 minutes to all 3 area resorts: Hunter Mountain, Windham Mountain and Belleyare Mountain.

Hiking, fishing, hunting, swimming all right out the front door. The cabin sits within the Catskill State Park, so it's all right outside! Just walk uphill behind the cabin to find hiking trails and hunting grounds, or across rt. 42 to find a river to swim and fish in. (There is a GREAT hike who's trail head is off of Spruceton Road, 2 minutes south on rt. 42) A little further out, take a short drive to any of the many reservoirs in the area for a day hike or picnic.

To see the beauty of Autumn in the Catskills, just look out the window or sit on the porch...the cabin faces the broad side of Halcott Mt. heavily wooded and bright with color in the fall.

For restaurants, shopping, antiquing, craft fairs and festivals, take a drive to nearby Windham and Tannersville to the North, or Phoenicia and Woodstock to the Southeast.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am a musician and lover of the outdoors. I grew up in Long Island NY and have lived for many years in Brooklyn. There's pretty much nothing I like to do more than travel, except for hiking in the woods and quietly relaxing in the mountains.

Why the Owner Chose West Kill, NY, USA:
I bought this property because of its prime location for enjoying anything and everything the Outdoors has to offer us all year round. I wanted to have access to a place of my own to 'get away' from time to time, as well as provide a clean, cozy and affordable place for others to be able to take some time for themselves and breathe the fresh air and drink the clean water of the mountains.
