About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Fully renovated 1885 farmhouse in the village of Roxbury only minutes from most wedding venues and just down the street from the Roxbury Motel. It is a quick stroll to the village where you can visit the local WIOX radio station, enjoy art shows and music performances at the Roxbury Arts Group, a deluxe spa at the Roxbury Motel or stroll in Roxbury's Kirkside Park and take in a summertime vintage baseball game played by the Roxbury Nine. Or simply enjoy watching the array of birds outside the picture window at the kitchen table or from one of several outdoor seating areas. Yes, deer, rabbits, and grouse are seen from that perch, as well. Our house is made for relaxation, family gatherings and soaking up the bountiful nature outside every window.

After a day of hiking/biking/golfing/tubing/swimming/playing tennis/horseback riding/ antiquing, enjoy a quiet moment on the back patio soaking up the tranquility of a mountain view or relaxing in the open plan living area.

Bedrooms include: master queen bed with private bath; 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds and shared bath with 3rd bedroom with futon. Full bath downstairs, too.

Keywords: farmhouse, in the village, charming, cozy, open, comfortable, with fireplace, large garden, mountain views, near water,

About Lewis Wendell

As a family we love to escape the urban jungle and go to our slice of heaven. The kids get to romp outdoors and we get to enjoy the many cultural/historical activities.

Lewis Wendell purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Lewis Wendell chose Roxbury

We loved the mix of mountains, open valleys and streams this part of the Catskills offers. Roxbury is a charming little hamlet with so much to do and see.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Relax. Relax. Relax. We love all the outdoor activities and we love the quiet time of reading by the fire, seeing our neighbors and enjoying the country. This was supposed to be a seasonal home and we visit every weekend of the year that we can!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town from out of state for a friend's wedding and had a lovely stay. The owner was attentive and helpful - checking in as needed and happy to answer any questions we had from out of town. The home was clean and nicely decorated with a spacious kitchen. The backyard views were so nice - we enjoyed watching the bunnies and hummingbirds from the kitchen. It was also fun to see the passenger train go by during the day. We wish we could have stayed longer.

It was a very restorative stay in a lovely setting in the enchanting hamlet of Roxbury. The house has a great feel, open and light with all the modern amenities.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home! Shared it with friends to attend a wedding at the Roxbury Barn. Plenty of space for each couple, clean, inviting, beautiful grounds, close to everything in town. Owner was a pleasure to deal with. Would rent again if in the area.

Serene property, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My review comes many months too late, but it shows just how great my stay was at this property. Lewis was so easy to work with. In the beginning I was surprised by the formality of the process (compared to my other experience booking via VRBO): he sent over a thorough contract and requested a few other things before we could finalize the booking. Seeing how attentive he was from the start, though, I knew there would be no surprises (bad ones, of course) once we arrived.

And I was right -- the property was lovely. Spacious, clean, serene ... a beautiful house located just a short walk from the village center. My friends and I (a total of five) all loved the place, and if we ever get a chance to return to Roxbury, we know where we'll be looking.

Thanks Lewis and Abigail!
