About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
The house itself is on a small road; there is a neighboring house on one side separated by trees and foliage, with forest and lake on the other three sides. There are two bedrooms and one bath. A spiral staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom with a queensize bed, skylights, futon sleep sofa and balcony. One bedroom is downstairs with a queensize bed and you awaken looking at the lake. The living room has cathedral ceiling, glass exposures to the lakeside with a fully furnished kitchen. Wood-burning stove, in addition to the heating system, makes it very cozy on chilly days. There is original artwork, rugs, etc. which adds to the charm of our house. All cotton linens, with flannel for cooler weather and down comforters.
Many all season activities are close by, some within minutes, others within a 30 to 45 minute drive. For example, hanggliding, gliding, hiking, rockclimbing, The ski resorts of Hunter, Windham and Belleayre are about an hour north. A smaller ski resort, Holiday Mountain (in Monticello) is 35 to 40 minutes drive.
Come and rejuvenate in a 'retreat' from worldly cares! Roam the country-side or bring books and good food and observe the lake with all it's many moods. Just recline on a sofa and look out. Down the 'hill' (15 minutes) in the small village of Ellenville, you'll find grocery stores and good restaurants. There are also pizza, deli and diners available. We are also so fortunate to have a wonderful theatre, summer stock but with some activites most of the year !
Two hours from New York City. Forty-five minutes from Kingston, New Paltz, Woodstock, Middletown, Monticello.

Ambulating children have a great time on the property and in the canoe. Parents will need to consider'child proofing'for the little crawlers-such as electrical outlets, etc. We have a few covers !...moreless

About the owner: New York City residents who found lakeside property to replenish on weekends during our lives there. And, now, we feel so fortunate to be here full-time and live next door to the rental property.
Why the Owner Chose Ellenville, NY, USA:
My husband and I are originally from the South and having grown up on water, we wanted a property with water !
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's such fun to watch for the various wildlife - ducks, canada geese, herons, turkeys, turtles, frogs, deer, fox, raccoons, skunks... Each season brings Bliss ! The Spring is a miracle of growth after the snows&ice of winter, summer is oh so wonderfully warm and sometimes even hot ! , the Fall is spectacular with all manner of color of leaves, etc. and the winter is 'Terrible Beauty' ... the snows and ice come and you watch it all happen and stoke the wood burning stove/ cook favorite foods and curl up being oh so cozy. But ... don't get me started about the year-round beauty !
