About Margaret Vyff

I am a parent, designer and environmentalist who likes to get away to the mountains. This house is a wonderful place to go skiing with my son and friends. I later found the Catskills are a beautiful place to hike! I have a big dog who hikes with me, so I needed a place where she is welcome too. :)

Margaret Vyff purchased this house in 2005

Why Margaret Vyff chose West Kill

The house is a 20 minute drive to Belleayre, Hunter and Wyndham Mountains. It's a lovely summer retreat as well, being within a few miles of the Devils Path trail head, which hits seven of the tallest peaks of the Catskills. The fall colors surround the house in spectacular glory!

What makes this house unique

The house is warm. The beds are cozy comfortable and I love sipping my coffee watching the mountain mist in the morning, before the rest of the house wakes up.

A very cute and cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful cozy house in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. The house was very neat and clean. Nestled between mountains and a stream running close by, it was beautiful. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids. The house was perfect.

We had bunch of friends visit us for a hike and who joined us at the house for dinner. The house provided enough of kid entertainment (WII, Board games).

The only downside is that the neighbors are right next to the house. So if you are looking for something secluded this is isn't it.

Overall, we had a great time!

Wonderful!

wonderful clean neat house in a beautiful quiet neighborhood.

We had a great time!

Only problem was the basement had a damp musty smell so we didn't use the pool table.

It was perfect

  • 5 of 5

My niece was getting married at Euphoria Estates and my siblings and I rented this house for the weekend. It was literally 1/2 mike from the estates. Peaceful, quite and lovely settings!

Lots of things to do in the area. Highly recommend it!
