Property description

Nestled high on the hill looking out over Pepacton reservoir, you'll find our treetop bungalow set in 5 acres of woodland and wildflower gardens. Travel just 2.5 hours from the George Washington bridge and leave the city far behind. Reconnect with fresh air, tranquility, and nature. This is true wilderness.

The 1,400 square foot Rainbow Ranch has two bedrooms (one king, one queen) and 1.5 bathrooms providing a spacious getaway for 4. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to make a delicious meal out of the fresh organic produce and homemade delights you find at farm stands and farmer’s markets and there's a dishwasher to ease the clean up.

Walk through the dining room to the giant living room and warm yourself at the bluestone fire place, flanked by octagonal windows. Step through the picture window to the sweeping sundeck – nearly the size of the house again. Recline and enjoy your morning coffee listening to the birds and looking out over the lake with the Catskills reaching out beyond. ...and, if the coffee isn't cutting it, you can complete the wake-up with a dip under our outdoor shower.

If you can tear yourself away from the view, there are awesome hikes (everywhere!), swimming holes (20 mins), fly fishing on Beaverkill (30 min), fishing/kayaking on Pepacton Reservoir (5 mins), swimming at little pond (20 min), skiing at Belleayre (25 mins) and Plattekill (30 mins), Belleayre Music Festival (15 mins), legendary fall colors (everywhere!), antiques, auctions, and crafts (everywhere!).

Don't feel like roasting marshmallows around our campfire under countless stars surrounded by fireflies? Head to Andes (15 min), an upstate NYC outpost, and get big city comforts with a village vibe. Margaretville (great supermarket - 5 min), Bovina (15 min) Arkville (8 min), and Roxbury (20 min) also offer great dining options and mountain hospitality.

We’ll provide a full list of tips on activities, trails, and places to eat and we have a map room packed with leaflets and maps from local places, so you’ll get most out of your stay.

Great things we didn’t mention yet!
