My husband and I bought this house in August 2013 after spending many years renting in the Catskills. We love the area and love having a place for our two kids to romp in the woods and dig for salamanders in the creek.
Elizabeth purchased this House in 2013
Why Elizabeth chose Mount Tremper
We made a list of all the things we hoped for in a house, knowing we would have to make compromises. But when we saw this house, it had everything: a spectacular view, backs up to acres and acres of state land, beautiful woods, a creek, an open living area, and enough beds to be able to invite our friends and family to join us, but also a good size for when it is just the four of us. Our kids say the best part is the porch swing where we we eat popcorn and watch the storms roll in from the across the valley. I especially love how alive the woods are with birds, deer, turkeys and all kinds of little creatures.

Fantastic house with great views!
We had a wonderful girls-weekend-getaway in Elizabeth's home -- she was very responsive to emails and very helpful.
The living/dining/kitchen area is spacious and comfortable...lots of interesting books around...and a gas fireplace that heats the first floor nicely. The master bedroom is GORGEOUS with a fantastic view and a great bathroom. The two main floor bedrooms are super cozy...all of the beds were comfortable with warm bedding (it was 16 degrees the weekend we were there). The basement is spacious and has big screen tv if that is your thing; the bunkroom basement is probably best for kids/teens...but two adults in our group selpt in there and (even though they had master bedroom envy), they were totally fine -- the beds were very comfortable. The house is 20 minutes from Woodstock and very close to numerous hiking trails. I higly recommend this house and we would absolutely stay there again.
Thank you! Come again!
Wonderful Wedding Weekend
My 8 year old daughter asked me to shrink the house, pack it and bring it back home with us! Elizabeth's home was a wonderful base for my brother's and my families while we enjoyed our little sister's wedding at nearby Foxfire. Lots of breakfasts on the deck, the kids loved all sharing a room with multiple bunkbeds and an ever changing coloured light on the ceiling. The home has the grace of lots of room and light - and while there were 8 of us here, it never felt crowded. Also, Elizabeth's instructions were very clear with many good ideas of how to enjoy the region - hiking, groceries, restaurants. We do recommend it to anyone, especially families.
Thank you! I'm so glad you had a good time! Come again.
beautiful house, very cozy and friendly.
Beautiful home. Clean, and uncluttered. Everything worked wonderfully in the home. It was secluded enough to feel private, yet close enough to town to make quick trips and get supplies.The owner was attentive and helpful, and always available when we had questions. I definitely recommend this home.
This house is in fact a beautiful home, spacious, clean with all amenities you should need. I had my children and their spouses with four grandchildren and we had enough room and space to not be in each other's way. I highly recommend it for families though a couple would still enjoy it immensely.
Thank you so much! Come again!
Beautiful property and home in great location
We had a wonderful time at Elizabeth's home over the Christmas holiday. House was exactly as described and we were thrilled. We even had a snow storm mid week which added to the entire experience. Hill in front was perfect for sledding and we all had a great time. Looking forward to returning next year!
Lovely home - Great Catskills retreat!!
We have just returned from a great fall weekend at this property and would love to return!! A lovely home in a lovely setting - the pictures give you a sense but do not do it justice. It was perfect for our group of two families with young children. We took full advantage of the very well-equipped kitchen and the kids loved the bunk room as well as the great selection of toys. And the hot tub was great on a cool fall evening!! The owner is easy to communicate with and provided clear instructions on the ins ands outs of the home. Recommend!!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and especially glad your kids made good use of those toys. We love renting to families, so come again! Elizabeth
