Nestled on a dead-end road, on a hill with woods behind and stunning Catskills views in front, this home allows you to get away from it all. Kick back on the deck for morning coffee as you watch the birds, or gaze at the mountains. Let the kids eat their pancakes in the tree house. Later, take a walk or a bike ride on the nearby rail trail, and across the trestle bridge over the Rondout Creek. Explore the charming town of Rosendale-- the great bakery, restaurants, library, and funky shops. And if you want more antiquing and dining options, quaint High Falls and Stone Ridge are just minutes away. Feeling athletic? Try rock climbing at the famous Shawangunk Mountains. Take a walk around Lake Minnewaska then head in for a swim. Play tennis in town. In the winter months head to the Catskills for a day of downhill skiing, or go cross-country or snow-shoeing at one of the many nearby trails. Domestic? Gather fruit for your next pie at a local farm or orchard. Arts and crafts projects for the kids in the well stocked “kids clubhouse”. Dine at any of the area's fabulous restaurants, and enjoy live music afterward or grill up a feast and watch the sunset from the table on the deck. 24 hours has never felt so full.
Accommodations: Our contemporary home allows for a real get-away. The open floor plan of the living/dining/kitchen areas is welcoming and comfortable, and allows for easy socializing with family and friends. In the colder months, the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace is delicious after a long day. The chef’s kitchen is stocked with all you could need, and with views of both the woods and the mountains, it’s an inspiring place to prepare a meal. The four bedrooms and two full baths readily accommodate eight people. Note, the house has no t.v.
