About Kirsten Malloy

We moved here from New York City after having our first child. We wanted a place in the country that would be nurturing and healing for our growing family. It's definitely done that for us and we are delighted to share our home with others while we seek new adventures!

Kirsten Malloy purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Kirsten Malloy chose South Kortright

The knotty pine cathedral ceilings make this home feel so spacious and roomy. The energy here feels inviting, warm, friendly so peaceful! After experiencing the inside of the house we ventured outside to the lake and could hardly believe we could actually own a little piece of heaven like this. Swimming in the lake each morning invigorates and refreshes each and every one of our spirits daily!

What makes this chalet unique

Having a lake in the back yard is such a blessing. The added amenities like the 15ft trampoline, tree house, swing set, sand boxes, slides and swings and boats truly make this property a children's paradise! Also the endless trails through the woods and the road that encircles the lake is so ideal for taking a leisurely stroll or bike ride.

Great get away from the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our group of friends. There is everything you need and once you’re there you don’t need to go anywhere, the house is very nice and comfy, and the lake is perfect for all day outdoor activities and games.

The property was beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Kirsten was very attentive to our inquiries . The home was large enough to accommodate my family of 4 - we didn’t use the loft bedroom or the sofa beds. Cell service was nonexistent (not at all the fault of the homeowner). WiFi was adequate

Great Experience and Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description do not give this cottage justice it's so much better in person. It was a wonderful getaway for our family. The property was way exceeded our expectation. The kids had a blast with the trampoline, the tree house, the playground, hammocks and swings in the backyard. We also really enjoyed the boats and the kayaks. The lake is so peaceful, clean and relaxing. If you're looking for a perfect spot to relax and enjoy some quality time with your family in a cozy cottage on a beautiful lake then look no further. Thank you for an amazing stay! We'd definitely stay here again.

Cozy Lakeside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Catskills at this colorful lakeside cabin! This cabin is perfect for you if you want to leave your phone and email behind and have a cup of hot coco with a good book by the wood burner. We visited during the winter, and the recent snow fall gave the area and cabin a winter wonderland feeling. We had a great time disconnecting, relaxing by the fire, cooking with friends, exploring the frozen lake, and local attractions the Catskills have to offer. The cabin definitely feels lived in like some of the reviews mentioned, but it makes it more homey and inviting then other properties I have stayed at. There was a good collection of games to play, books to read, videos to watch, and music to listen to. Honestly if your going in the summer, you are going to be spending most of your time outside on the lake any way. We are looking forward to going back in the summer and really taking advantage of the lake!
