After being a lawyer for over 20 years, I decided to change careers and started designing & renovating properties. This is my second project to date. I hope you will enjoy the fruit of my passion for design and my love of this beautiful area.
Atossa Kia purchased this Apartment in 2016

The scenery was absolutely beautiful!
My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice weekend getaway and we could not have picked a better spot! The snow on the mountains behind the house and the warm peace and quiet were just what we needed to relax and enjoy a nice weekend together! If and when we get the chance we will definitely be going back to Atossa’s beautiful home! Thank you for such an amazing getaway!
You are most welcome Sarah. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Looking forward to having you again in the future.
Incredibly beautiful property that made for a memorable, perfect weekend
Thank you Atossa, our stay was so perfect, from the cozy living room to the comfortable bed, living room and beautiful surroundings. We are already planning on returning again for our next weekend retreat. Thank you again!
Carmen and Sheri
It was a real pleasure to have you. Happy thanksgiving!
We absolutely loved our time at Papillon Lake! The decor inside is amazing and both the bed and pull-out couch are super comfortable (we snuggled up on the pull-out to watch a movie during a rain storm). And the property itself is perfect--from morning coffee and lunchtime grilled burgers on the deck to chilling with a beer on the Adirondack chairs on the dock to evenings spent in front of the fire pit, everything was perfect! We kayaked and even swam in the lake. Such a perfect and relaxing long weekend getaway, we will definitely be back!
Thank you for the kind words. I am glad to hear you had such an amazing time! I hope you visit us again in the future.
OMG can’t say enough about Atossa’s place!!!
Every detail was so well thought out.
We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at her place.
The weather was wonderful and we were able to enjoy all of her outdoors including kayak rides around her pond.
Our favorite part was cooking out with some local grass fed steaks and enjoying a glass of wine on her deck.
Will be back for sure!
Many Thanks Atossa!
A perfect getaway spot!
Had a wonderful time at Papillon Lake! The house is just as adorable as pictured and stocked with all of the essentials, and the surroundings are simply beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed grilling by the lake, taking the kayak out for a spin, and (attempting) to make a fire in the fire pit. Atossa's home is the perfect place for a beautiful, relaxing getaway to the Catskills and we can't wait to come back!
Thank you Kristina for your review! You are welcome back anytime! :)
Lovely modern touches in a cabin setting
Just spent a weekend there with my boyfriend. We weren't lucky with the weather, but it didn't matter. The bed is super comfortable and the space is utilized very efficiently. That little red fridge is the best!
Only issue I'd mention is while the shower is divine, the lack of curtain or sliding glass made it impossible not to get water out onto the floor no matter how careful we were. There's gotta be a way to remedy that.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at papillon lake. Thanks for your feedback. As for the shower, we chose the Italian shower design for its generous space. Also, it is our experience that shower curtains are not very hygienic (tend to get moldy after a while) nor sturdy and shower doors often get outside their rails, hence the solid large glass. As we provide a bath rug that exactly fits the opening of the shower, this should normally take care of the splatter.
