About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

The cares of the world will totally disappear as you arrive and become part of a unique and tranquil surrounding that will revitalize your senses.

This magnificent property of 114 acres of trees, hills and meadows encircle the house which fronts a four and half-acre lake surrounded by landscaped gardens. There is also a one-acre pond with its own island. Streams and several beautiful waterfalls run throughout the property. Sunbathe, row a boat or fish during the day—start a campfire, stargaze or take a night stroll and listen to the frogs and crickets. You can hike the 114 acres or the adjoining 650-acre New York’s Forest Preserve.

The lake is suitable for swimming. The area around the dock has a sandy bottom allowing easy access to the water without having to wade through a mud bottom. There is a raft in the middle of the lake, which you can swim to or sunbathe on.
A rowboat and canoe are available for your use. Fishing is permitted. The lake contains largemouth and smallmouth bass, perch, catfish and crappies. The small 1-acre pond is home to our “pet” rainbow trout. We call them our “pets” as we feed them but do not fish in that one location. It's something that our guests have greatly enjoyed doing.

The log cabin home is approximately 200 feet from the lake. The log cabin has original knotty pine wood throughout. The kitchen and both bathrooms have been completely renovated. The kitchen has new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops. The wall between the kitchen and living room was removed, creating a great room that is at once larger yet more involving. The upstairs bathroom has a new glass block window and tub. The tub area has been tiled and the vanity has a granite countertop. The downstairs bathroom features a new glass enclosed tiled shower, floor and refurnished walls.

The living room contains a stone fireplace for cool evenings and winter days. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs with an added daybed in the downstairs lounge area. The house can accommodate eight people. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The third has a day bed that, when opened, can sleep two comfortably. The downstairs lounge area can accommodate two comfortably as well.

Tennis, golf, biking and antique shopping begin within a five minute drive. Attractions include: Belleayre Mountain and Plattekill ski resorts, summer concerts, Roxbury Arts Center, and Hannah Golf Resort, to name a few. Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is a little over one hour away. Though the property feels completely isolated from the world, it is located just two miles from the Village of Margaretville which has a large supermarket, hospital, shops, banks, gas stations, veterinarians and restaurants. Many surrounding hamlets and villages offer additional eateries and quaint shopping experiences.

House amenities include wireless internet, cell phone service, free long distance in the continental USA and cable television. We have Apple TV, so you can access the inclusive HBO GO and Showtime Anytime. If you have a Netflix or iTunes account, you can download movies directly without having to go into town to rent a movie, although that is an option as well.
