Car: Necessary

The house is located within the Catskill Mountain State Forest area. Near the Blackhead Ridge. I particularly enjoy swimming at Colgate lake which is in a forever wild setting, has no lifeguards, or motorboats and is dog friendly. Aside from enjoying nature for free which is my preference there are many nearby recreational attractions : Bear Creek Landing - recreational center for kids - includes miniature golf, horseback riding, snowmobiling, and fireworks. Tannersville has restaurants, bars, street festivals antique shops, and a golf course.

Hunter - Ziplining, mountain biking, Skyrides on slope chairlifts, Art House Cinema and First Run Feature films. Piano Museum and classical music series. Music Festivals at the ski slope include country, rock & roll, and a festival where 100 bagpipes descend the mountain !

Maplecrest - Catskill Mountain Foundation classes in Ceramics, Weaving, and Painting.

Windham- Windham Mtn has a wide range of winter sports: Downhill, Xcountry, and Snowshoeing. In the summer - World Cup of Mountain biking, classical music series, historic Civil War Days, antique shops, restaurants and a Greene County art gallery.

Mountain Trails in Tannersville rents Cross Country Skis and snoeshoes and has 17 miles of groomed trails.

Phoenicia has the Catskill Mtn Railroad, tubing on the Esopus, and art and performance festivals.

East Durham has Zoom Flume, a water park, and an Irish music Festival.

Cooperstown, NY - has the Baseball Hall of Fame.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I live and work in Brooklyn in the Gowanus district near Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. I am an artist and documentary filmmaker. Retired college professor(30 years) and administrator. I grew up about 30 miles from Pittsburgh with nearby Laurel mountains similar to the northern Catskills. I am a single parent with a 16 yr. old daughter, who is more inclined to social life in Brooklyn and NYC and less interested in Catskills nowadays. So I want to hold on to the house, but I don't get there as frequently as before. Hence, the interest in renting the house out.

Why the Owner Chose East Jewett, NY, USA:
I fell in love with Colgate Lake and the hamlet of East Jewett through renting nearby houses for successive summers. Its about a three hour drive to the city and the traffic is much more manageable than traveling to Long Island. Set in the mountains, the house is cool and does not require AC. Nary a mosquito, nor a tick and there is no poison ivy on the property or around the lake. The house is close to a quiet road (Rt. 23C) which facilitates winter access. This is a nice quiet escape from the city. However, there are plenty of active recreational possibilities nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Living along the East Kill Creek - its eternally dynamic and fascinating - Great Blue Heron and Kingfishers are frequently on patrol. There is an returning family of Canvasback ducks in May. I have seen an Otter in the winter. Deer, fox, occasional black bear (harmless if you don't go after their cubs). Eagles, wild turkeys, turkey vultures, and owls. All manner of song birds - my favorite being cedar wax wings. On a cloudless or semi cloudless night the sky is spectacular. Cross Country skiing or snowshoeing in the woods is a great winter walk and even more so with a full moon reflecting off of the snow. We once surprised a porcupine while snowshoeing which climbed up a spindly tree barely able to hold it. The encounter with nature is constant and the fresh air is invigorating. The pleasure of doing one thing at a time is thoroughly an antidote to urban multiplicity and stress.
