The space
This is a beautifully restored 1850s farmhouse with an open first floor plan and four bedrooms + two full baths upstairs and one half bath downstairs. At an elevation of 2200 feet, and bordering the 275,000 acres of Catskills National Park, you're surrounded by idyllic mountain views across Platte Clove. The wrap-around porch comes set with antique rocking chairs and outdoor dining table, and in warmer weather, there is much good swimming to be done in the pond in our yard, or at the waterfalls which are literally within minutes walk.

The house is full of beautiful design moments — exposed, hand-hewn, reclaimed barn beams, wooden floors, a clawfoot tub in the guest bath, a gorgeous slate-lined walk-in shower in the master bath, and antique furniture pieces, many of which are the original pieces that came with the house when we bought it. Oh and we now have curtains in all the rooms which isn’t shown in the photos. Enjoy an indoor wood-burning stove, and an outdoor hot tub, sauna, pond, fire pit, depending on the weather.

We also have a back-up generator, HRV heat recovery ventilation system, and radiant floor heating (both of which make the house eco-friendly and very comfortable). We've spent many perfect winter weekends up here and have worked out a prompt plowing service with our neighbor so we're never snowed in.

There are no other houses in view from the property. Nearby are Hunter Mountain ski resort (15 minutes away), Tannersville (nearby bars, restaurants, grocery), Saugerties (just down the mountain — home to Miss Lucy's famous french toast), and Woodstock (15 minutes when the seasonal back road is open), not to mention the trailheads for Huckleberry Point, Indian Head, Sugarloaf, Lookout Mountain

In the spring, summer and fall, it's about 20 minutes off the NY State Thruway, exit 20 (Saugerties). In the winter months, it’s a few extra minutes, winding through an incredibly scenic Catskills Preserve, right past Kaaterskill Falls. And is only 8 miles from Hunter Mountain Ski Resort.

Let’s see, I'm a filmmaker by trade, an avid hiker and outdoorsman. Camping and swimming is heaven for me. Oh, and I just love to play the violin (or “fiddle”, depending on who you’re talking to). I’ve been a super host for many years now, and know the do’s and don’ts of Airbnb pretty well at this point. Both as guest and host. :-)
