About the Property

A clean and comfortable house next to a gentle river with a swimming hole.

A charming house nestled at the bottom of a valley between two mountains with a river flowing by. Awaken to the sight of a river and a mountain right outside. Enjoy breakfast while gazing at the view from the sunroom. Then go play in the river with the kids and your dog.

The river in front of the house is very shallow except after a big rain. It's a wonderful environment for children to play in and find tadpoles. The swimming hole is just 200 feet upstream. It's not easily accessible so there's usually no one there. The river is stocked with trout and the bald eagles fly close to the house looking for fish.

The house is fully stocked with pretty much everything you need. Linens and towels, shampoo and soap, spices and cookware, barbecue grill and fire pit (with plenty of wood!) a big field, a movie projector and a telescope, games and puzzles and tons of movies and books. Just bring some food and enjoy!

The Neighborhood

Sundown village is in a remote, undiscovered part of the Catskills. This is the place to go if you want to get away from it all. You can walk a few minutes from the house to the center of the village which has an old one room church and a small bait shop. From there you can walk in various directions on some quiet roads with amazing views.

There are pristine forests all around with hiking trails that lead up to breathtaking views and vintage fire towers. You can see waterfalls and rivers and ponds all around.

With a little bit of driving, you can find great restaurants, farms, yoga ashrams, galleries, etc. Check out some antique sales or try fly-fishing. Mongaup pond and Minnewaska park are all within reach and so is Frost Valley YMCA which has activities for kids and adults. The ski resorts are an hour away.

Other Things

The AC is in one of the bedrooms upstairs. It easily cools the second room if you leave the doors open. The downstairs room is naturally cool.

There’s a high chair and some baby items at the house.

Check in and check out times are flexible unless there's another booking right before or after.

The internet works great but is not unlimited usage so please no streaming.

The minimum booking is a weekend or a weekend night and 2 weeknights or 3 weeknights. 3 day minimum for holiday weekends. Reservations that begin and end on a Saturday may cost more than the listed rates.
