Property description

Your perfect romantic summer hideaway!

Luxurious cottage with private entrance and 6 person hot tub in its own courtyard. Feels secluded, but only 2 minutes stroll to little town of Phoenicia- recently voted one of the six coolest small towns in the US by Budget Travel Magazine!

2 minutes walk from restaurants, cafes and stores in Phoenicia. Our cottage is architect designed with attention to detail- beautiful cedar lofted ceiling with skylights, bamboo floors and glass doors overlooking a lovely secluded bluestone courtyard . Super comfortable memory foam Queen bed and fold out futon. Wi fi and free Netflix movies via Roku add to the allure. You'll love your own private hot tub in the cottage courtyard offering uninterrupted views of the stars and roasting smores in the firepit . Beautiful light filled bathroom with river stone shower and Italian tiles and skylights. Cute kitchenette with everything you need to prepare breakfast or light meals. Perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway or small family. Well behaved pets welcome.

No car needed- Trailways bus direct from the Port Authority in NYC will land you within a couple of minutes walk from our property.

NEW! Our cottage has a little kitchenette with sink, hotplates, toaster oven, microwave, fridge, coffee maker and basic utensils- great for preparing breakfast and small meals . There is a charcoal grill in the courtyard for summer barbecue and s'more making possibilities in the firepit! (Pictures coming soon).

Venture out of town a few minutes to have breakfast at the fabulous new Phoenicia Diner on Route 28 or dinner at the Peekamoose in Big Indian. Brios has great wood fired pizzas, and Tavern 214 and The Phoenician have the classier cuisine. Sweet Sues has reopened offering the best pancakes this side of the Mississippi. The Peekamoose for locally sourced produce cooked with love and flair in a beautiful setting. The world class Emerson resort and Spa is three minutes away and boasts the wonderful Phoenix restaurant as well as offering an array of spa treatments. Ask about more dining options- we're happy to make recommendations. Basic self catering items can be purchased on the corner in the Phoenicia Supermarket.

Miles of pristine hiking trails await. The wonderful Tannbark Trail easily accessible from behind the studio from the back of the Parish Field. Hike 20 minutes to the top of the Mountain for great views of Phoenicia and surrounding mountains- if you're feeling fit, continue on the loop for another hour or so to experience woods, cliffs, little waterfalls and pure streams.

Phoenicia is Old World Americana- a hidden gem of a town on the verge of rediscovery.

Find something surprising at The Mystery Spot or The Home Store. Monthly art openings at the Arts Upstairs are a blast and classic movies and home grown theater take center stage at the Shandaken Theatrical Society Theater.Take a train ride along the Esopus Creek from the Railway Museum just around the corner. The annual Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, founded by the owner , opera singer Kerry Henderson, transforms our little town into a hub for the vocal arts in early August.

Walk five minutes in any direction, and you are in the middle of unbridled wilderness. Wonderful hiking accessible from behind our property, swimming across the street in the Esopus Creek, cross country skiing, snow tubing trout fishing, seasonal festivals, you name it!.

A haven for lovers, writers, artists, musicians, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I'm an opera singer, gallery owner and arts festival organizer. I'm originally from New Zealand. I started the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice in the field behind our home four years ago and this has grown to become one of the most successful arts events in the region each summer. My wife, Bex is from Scotland and is a storyteller and actress and we have two young children, Rosa and Edrick. We've lived in many places throughout the world and consider the Catskills to be one of the most beautiful areas we have ever had the pleasure to spend time.
