My property manager will greet you, get you settled, and answer any questions you may have. Though my private residence is situated next door, it is off limits to renters and not occupied when guests are enjoying their stay.


From the Hudson Valley painters to the hills of Rip Van Winkle, from the old comedy acts of the 50's to the fly fishing camps and wineries of today, The Catskills is a beautiful and historic landscape. Dotted with antique shops and organic ice cream stops, apple farms, music venues, professional theatres, and fisheries, our neighborhood has something for everyone!


From New York city you can take a train to Middletown New York, and then a 25 minute cab ride to our home. Or, catch the bus at Port Authority which lets you off in Wurtsboro - just a 15 minute cab ride away. Schedules are New Jersey transit for the train, and Short Line for the bus.


This property is unlike any other just 90 minutes from New York city. It is perfect for the executive who wants to enjoy a country home, but doesn't want to own one... Perfect for the artist who wants to spend a week (or a month) writing the next great novel. Perfect for a warm family reunion, or for the couple who wants to lie in a hammock by the stream and read for hours. Our lake is full of sunfish, largemouth bass, and crappies. Beaver, otters, eagles, Canadian geese, bear, quail, skunk, deer, swan, and great blue heron all make their homes in this unique environment. Occasionally we are visited by the loon, and that is a sound to remember forever.


For privacy reasons the pin on map is located approximately 5 mins down the road.

Owner info

About the owner: Hi, I'm Verna...and while I'm not pictured, my wonderful team helps me manage this beautiful property when I'm traveling. I'm a writer, artist and a potter & my work brings me between fabulous New York City, the New York countryside, and California. I fell in love with our National Parks as a young girl, and enjoy hiking and camping with my kids from Yosemite to Yellowstone. On a smaller scale however... :) spending quality time in my country home with my family is just fine! This is the first time I am sharing my lakeside hOMe with my family, (it is so lovely in all seasons) so you won't see any reviews...yet! Candace helps me with the rentals and communication when I am on the road. I hope you choose hOHMe to kick back and enjoy a break in the country!
