About the Property

A private country house tucked away in the forest next to a river

A charming home nestled at the bottom of a valley between two mountains next to a river. Awaken to the sight of mountains and trees outside. Enjoy breakfast while gazing at the river from the sunroom. Then go play in the water with the kids and your dog. The bald eagles have a nest nearby and often fly close to the house to catch fish in the river.

Fall is the most picturesque time to be in the Catskills. Go for a hike in the forest and enjoy the colors. It's foliage season and the colors of the leaves are breathtaking. Rivers and ponds and waterfalls all around. Check out some antique sales or try fly-fishing.

At night come home to a clean, comfortable house and cook up a big family dinner and for dessert roast marshmallows on the fire pit. You can see all the stars on a clear night with the telescope. Or hang out in the living room and play a board game or watch a movie with the projector. There are tons of books and movies and games and puzzles in the house.

The Area

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 a one room church and a 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 you up the mountains to breathtaking vistas and vintage fire towers.

With a little bit of driving you can find great restaurants, farms, yoga ashrams, galleries, etc. Mongaup pond and Minnewaska park are within reach and so is Frost Valley YMCA which has activities for both kids and adults.

Other Things

3% discount for payments not using a credit card

500 minimum per booking (not including fees)

My house has been a wonderful environment for many families with babies (high chair available) however there are no special safety mechanisms.

The AC is in one of the bedrooms upstairs during summertime. It can cool the second room also if you leave the doors open. The downstairs room is naturally cool.
