About the Property

Massive Civil War House nestled at the base of The Kaaterskill Wild Forest

Welcome to the Arlington, a historic house rental in Palenville, New York. Originally built during the Civil War as a summer retreat, this 4-bedroom self-catering property offers the quiet, space, and charms of the country. Located in the first art colony of America on the banks of the Kaaterskill Creek, the Arlington is a hassle-free homebase for exploring the region or hitting the local hiking trails to The Kaaterskill Falls, North and South Lake.

The Arlington is located on Main Street in Palenville, New York. This recently renovated Civil War Inn has a weeping willow in the front yard and a 10-foot deep wrap around porch with large dining table and chairs. The expansive great room (30×30) includes a kitchen with full-size fridge, four-burner stove, microwave, and overhead ceiling fans. The bright, sunny living room (27×20) has wide planked wood floors, period brass fans, and a decorative fireplace.

Across the street from the Arlington is Circle W Market, a general store focused on local and organic foods that dates back to 1908. Palenville is also home to the Rip Van Winkle Country Club and a family-owned restaurant called the Fernwood.

The peaceful town of Palenville, New York was founded as the first Art Colony in America by Asher B. Durand. The historic Otis Railway, a funicular that carried people up to the Catskill Mountain House, is nearby. Kaaterskill Creek—an inspiration for many famous painters and paintings—runs through the backyard of the property. In season, a refreshing afternoon can be spent swimming in the cool, clean water of the stream.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: I grew up at The Arlington, and have spent many years restoring it. I work in advertising in Manhattan and split my time between Palenville and the city.

Why the Owner Chose Palenville, NY, USA:
The house is so big, 3000 square feet, that you can get lost in it. Large groups of people can find their own private quiet space, while coming together in the spacious kitchen/great room or living room with both featuring 11 foot ceilings. In the summer, swim in the Kaaterskill Creek behind the house with private swimming at The Fernwood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Centrally located for day trips to all the surrounding towns. Go antiquing in Hudson. Shopping, dining and gallery hopping in Woodstock. Hits Equestrian Events in Saugerties. Ski Hunter or Windham Mountains. Hike from the house to The Kaaterskill Falls, and North and South Lakes.
