After years of renting in the Catskills, we decided it was time to have a permanent place to call home. We are so happy to be able to share this experience with others.
Ryan purchased this House in 2015
Why Ryan chose Shandaken
This house offered a quiet retreat to enjoy nature. The house was tastefully renovated. On our first day here we saw wild turkeys and rabbits in the yard. We love the drive up here passing mountains, streams, and rivers.
What makes this House unique
The large windows allows you to enjoy nature with the 270 degree view of the surroundings. Large wrap around deck great for enjoying nature or having a BBQ or enjoy cool nights by the fire pit. Convenient to the main road and attractions but feels miles away from everything.

Wonderful, clean and well equipped home. Beautiful yard and very responsive owner! Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of The Red House. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Revisit with co-workers
This was actually our second time visiting this place.
One of the coworker moved to other company and before she legitimately resigned, we decided to give a visit again to the place where we had great memories.
The owner, Ryan, was very accommodating as before. He was caring from the beginning to the end. Upon arrival we found the gift from Ryan, champagne!! He even left a hand-written note of warm welcoming.
House was amazing as before as well, fireplace was all ready to kick-in, all new furnitures were very clean. What I have noticed in our second visit is that kitchen wears, dishes and silverwear etc - changed into new ones. This tells me that the owner is actually caring of his customers. All the sauces, oil and kitchen needs were re-filled (purchased as brand new of course), all you need to do is simply walk in, everything else is ready!
Will definitely give a visit again later time, 100% recommend!!
Thank you for your return visit and taking the time to write a review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the house on your return visit and look forward to having you back.
Beautiful home and property
My family and I recently visited the Red House on the Hill and had a wonderful time. The house was immaculate, comfortable and close to so many fun things to explore! Highly recommend and will certainly be back.
Thank you for staying at The Red House on the Hill and taking the time to write a review. I am glad to read you had a wonderful time and look forward to having you back.
Family vacation in the Catskills area
We have gathered a three generation family into this fabulous house in an amazing setting and didn't want to leave! This is not our first or second time taking a home in the area but it was definitely our best choice so far. The house fitted the 8 of us perfectly, especially when you can accommodate the kids in one of the upstairs rooms. The kitchen is well equipped. The fire pit was a great joy and the beautiful backyard and the surrounding just made it all enchanting. I typically have something to say for improvement but couldn't find anything here. Ryan was great to communicate with. Already planning on returning in the spring!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am happy to hear you had a great time. I am looking froward to having you back in the spring.
Couldn’t have been better.Beautiful decor. Perfectly maintaine . . Near beau
. New Bosch appliances including washer and dryer. Close to hiking trails. Only suggestion is to put grab bars in the showers. Have rented other houses. This was the best. Carol 10/4-10/8 2018

The property both inside and out was far beyond our expectations.
This is one of those places that looks even better than the pictures. The furnishings are gorgeous yet functional. The kitchen and household supplies were fully stocked. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Ryan responded immediately to the few small issues we had. We stayed for a month and hope to do so again. It was our first time in the area and we had so much fun. We found some great hikes and restaurants (Phoenicia Diner, Sweet Sue’s and Peekamoose) Company all wanted to visit Woodstock which is an easy drive. There is a nice lake for swimming very close that all the grandkids enjoyed. We also enjoyed walking the bridge over the Hudson and visiting DIA in Beacon. We had a lot of rain and the house was perfect for those days as it has a great screened porch and we enjoyed endless games of Cribbage. One surprising aspect for us was how uncrowded the area is particularly during the week. Overall just a perfect time for us.
Thank you for your review of The Red House on the Hill and keeping the house in good condition. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the house and area and look forward to having you return.
