About the Property

Artful, intimate, unique, immaculate and very cozy cottage in the mountains

GRAB A LITTLE MAGIC.... romantic cottage beside a little brook with campfire.

Romantic Paint the Night Cottage is part of a four acre property near waterfalls, flowing rivers, lakes in state parks that have full amenities and hiking in the ancient Catskill Mountains.
Skiing, seasonal tubing and swimming make our area a natural Disney World!
Our unique, artful, green dwelling is available by the night, week or month.


Tumble into bed to the sound of our brook singing, soothed by a heated tile floor downstairs or get cozy upstairs under the stars with a book or cup of tea at dawn gaze out the large picture window when snow softly falls.
A rocking chair out the front door, brooks 10 ft away, campfire, picnic table under stars twinkling.

The Cottage in the Wood best accommodates 2 people: (we have slept six but it is tight!)
Upstairs is our comfortable 'sleep under the stars' master bedroom with large windows directly over brook, skylight, small library, cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors.
Additional sleeping is possible THROUGH the master bedroom in an Americana themed separate bedroom perfect for the kids, mother in law or Uncle Harry - with a double bed (and fold up floor mattress for two if you want to pack people like sardines!)
Be aware, at the top of the stairs one must walk a few feet through the master bedroom to reach the second studio bedroom. (A large wicker screen is provided for privacy if you are two couples --- but please keep in mind, these two bedrooms are close.
(Consider reserving our other cottage if you are two couples seeking more intimacy while you 'paint your night' ha ha ha)
NOTE: Over two adults is 30. per person for a one night stay, kids half price, babies free if you bring along a mobile crib.
There is also a full bed futon couch in the (small) downstairs kitchen day room for another option but our downstairs room is small.
Often 6 people have stayed especially when spending time outdoors but our other cottage is better for six people.

WEDDING? BRIDAL SHOWER? REUNION? We have two
Paint the Night Main House
also listed on this rental bigger, rent both for large gatherings.

Each dwelling is private, separated by 125 feet and a long 5 ft tall privacy fence and each has separate parking areas..

- romantic as a melody for two people on a honeymoon
- the campfire is right out the front door on the edge of a mountain brook
- scrumptious heated tile floor in the (small) kitchen day-room downstairs
- can sleep up to 6 people in close quarters ( remember, there are additional charges for more than two guests).
- perennial flower gardens in season
- pick your own 'take home' bouquets free
- bear, rabbits and deer
- beautiful, fluffy towels and linens provided
- Wifi
- netflix (via computer only)
- a Weber grill
- limitless on demand hot water for soothing baths.
- a fully equipped country with everything a cook would want to make a turkey or vegetarian dish. We provide organic teas, coffees, sugar, honey, spices, cleaning supplies, environmental soap, and family style shampoo and conditioner.
Slow down and enjoy life - because life is short!
Build a blazing campfire and warm the chilly nights with a bottle 'o wine, cocoa or roast marsh-mellows.
We LOVE dogs however we have some logical dog rules one dog 55, two 85.
Paint the Night is a NON-SMOKING dwelling.

Treat yourself to a slice of you know YOU DESERVE IT.
Much peace to you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I am an artist, singer-songwriter, landscape designer, children's book illustrator/author, grandmother of a college student, and am owned by my 145 landseer Newfoundland/ St. Bernard mix, Tallulah.

Why the Owner Chose Chichester, NY, USA:
Near great events like the Woodstock Film Festival the weekend of Oct 16th, all the festivals at Hunter Mountain.... Hunter Mountain's summer festivals include WDST's Mountain Jam, A Taste of Country Music Festival, German Alps Festival and the International Celtic Music Festival... 11 miles from the skiing at Hunter Mountain, 40 minutes from Bellayre and Windham. With Hunter Mountain close, yet we are far from the maddening crowd, spend days skiing, snow boarding, cross country skiing, tubing the Esopus, swimming or hiking. There is also the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice, Saugarties' world famous Garlic Festival, The Saugarties Lighthouse on the Hudson, Rosendale's summer Street Fair and Pickle Festivals or visit the Clearwater Sloop: Woody Guthrie docked now in Kingston Harbor on the Hudson river. Our serene location is only 11 miles from Hunter Mountain Ski Resort, and near to Bellarye and Windham's ski trails. We offer great outdoor cooking, unique location on a small mountain brooks near skiing, fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, tubing, music and dancing and awesome yummy restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
On a 4 acre perennial nursery you'll be welcome to pick a free bouquet when leaving, We are on a lovely private brook, with an old fireplace from a former dining room which makes for dynamite outdoor barbeques.
