Perfect for all four seasons. Snowy & Cozy in winter, between 3 ski resorts In autumn stunning leaf color, fresh in spring when all the apple and magnolia blossoms appear and summer is stellar by the 40x 20 pool.

Why the Owner Chose Bearsville, NY, USA:
Charm Charm Charm, Built by the neighboring farmer's family in 1930 for an emigre family from Germany. It has a woodsy feel with charming little details. When we first saw it it was the setting that grabbed us, it's not grand but super relaxed and now a little lux with the new bathrooms and kitchens and the addition of the new hot tub and heated saline pool. The Hamlet of Bearsville reminds me of where I went to school in Somerset, England, green hills and dark starry nights. You can come and rejuvenate yourself in the relaxing compound, set in landscaped grounds surrounded by flowering apple and magnolia trees.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
You are in the country with all delicious benefits,from the farm next door where you can walk over in the morning and buy your happy eggs, to swimming holes, hiking, tubing & trout fishing, yet close to everything you would need to have a relaxing time with art galleries, Zagat rated restaurants, a cute little village for a stroll and some shopping and the relaxed atmosphere of a cosmopolitan environment.
