About Esther de Jong
The owner has a passion for cooking which shows when you see this custom designed kitchen. The cabinets were a find from a building on the Upper East Side and restored in Woodstock by Steve Heller from Fabulous Furniture. The cabinets sat in the living room for a few years until, during a truth or dare game with children of friends, one of the children asked the owner if the kitchen was ever going to be finished. It was finally finished in 2014 together with the rest of the renovations to the house.
Esther de Jong purchased this House in 2007
Why Esther de Jong chose Halcottsville
Halcottsville is a lovely hamlet town located in the Western Catskills. It has lot's of old world charm and a wonderful lake in the middle of the village where you can go kayaking or rent bikes to go for a ride along the lake. The house is walking distance from the lake and there are lovely trails that run behind the house. The stream out back is perfect to cool off in on a hot summer day or just to listen to while lounging on the deck.

Beautiful and quiet
The house is decorated with a lot of taste. The kitchen is a paradise for cooking. We loved the river in the back of the house. We enjoyed the canoeing experience which was 2mns walk from the house. We did spend a very enjoyable weekend.
A wonderful place to stay
The house was perfect for our hiking group of friends. The house was beautiful and the owner was extremely helpful. Cannot recommend enough.
Comfortable, clean, lovely home
We had a wonderful time at this home -- the kitchen was fantastic for our three foodie chefs, the rooms and beds comfortable, and our kids had fun in playing in the snow in the large yard. We had a great time, thank you!
Lovely, comfortable home
Eight of us spent the weekend here for a family wedding in the area. We were very comfortable in the house; the kitchen is well stocked and living area is spacious. Outdoor deck and yard are lovely, although the weather was too cool to allow us to make much use of it. The property manager was very helpful throughout rental process.
Great weekend at an amazing house!
My friends and I were up here for a friend’s wedding. We only spent two nights at the house but had a really wonderful time. The house itself is really beautiful- with a nice mixture of old and new elements. We really enjoyed the kitchen! Made some nice meals and ate out on the deck. The creek behind the house was a great place to enjoy a cup a coffee in the morning. We wandered over to the Main Street and checked out an art gallery and watched the trains roll by.
We all joked about moving into the house and never leaving, that’s how great it is!
Wonderful property, wonderful location
My family has stayed at many houses in the Catskills area and this one may be our favorite. The interior of the house had everything that we could have wanted and was very comfortable. The outdoor space is perfect for sitting around and reading a book under the beautiful trees. We walked down to the stream and cooled off our feet in the fresh water.
The house is 100 feet from a great little grocer for the necessities, and not many more feet from kayaking, canoeing, hiking, etc. I'm also a jogger and it's really tough to find a flat jogging path in the Catskills. The road that follows the river is about 3 miles round trip.
We loved it and will be heading back!
