About Anthony James Kopp
My husband James and I focus on healthy living, the environment and sustainability. We enjoy the simple pleasures of this culturally-rich community surrounded by the majestic Catskill Forest Preserve. Every day something in nature delights us: a flock of turkeys, an autumn landscape, the sunset on the Esopus Creek, cukes with sparkling morning dew, the grand constellations. I stop, take in the beauty, and focus on gratitude. We enjoy helping guests take a break from the hubbub of city life to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect with each other. We worked as professionals in NYC and understand the importance of that spur-of-the-moment getaway as a way to find balance between work and play. We give our guests total privacy. But we help our guests explore our cool and quaint hamlet of Phoenicia and its environs with its many of its hidden treasures. We love sharing this magical place with you and have you fall in love as well.
Anthony James Kopp purchased this House in 2003

A lovely home in the woods
James and Alma take great pride in their home and it shows. The experience was great.
Communication with James was always timely, thorough and accurate.
The home is very comfortable and well appointed. Each bedroom has good beds, mirrors, storage and sitting spaces.
The shared spaces ( living room, sun room, etc) have comfortable, clean, sturdy sofas, chairs, etc. lighting, AC were fine.
The kitchen is very well appointed, well laid out, and everything worked fine.
The backyard is shared with two other small rental unitD. It is a beautiful garden with ornamentals and a lovely herb and veggie garden.
The walk to Phoenicia is about a mile, but quite doable for those in average physical shape.
The surrounding mountains, rivers etc are beautiful.
Some may find the property to be a bit remote...about an hour to Hyde Park, etc. For us, it was exactly what we wanted.
As Advertised, and then some
The house was in an immaculate state. The pictures detailed the property to a tee, James was extremely communicative and friendly without being overbearing. The kitchen was clean and organized and the linens in the bedrooms were fresh. We couldn’t have asked for more and will definitely be back.
Felt like home.
Truly the perfect getaway. Loved the well stocked kitchen (homegrown variety of herbs), the gas fireplace cozy and beds were very comfortable. The walk to the bridge and the sound of the river sealed the deal❤️ Local restaurants and shopping fun. Belleayre an easy drive away. Can’t wait to come back.
Thank you for your kind comments. The herbs are organically grown in the garden. Guests are allowed to pick herbs and veggies from the garden. James and Alma
