About this listing
Water, water, everywhere! This totally secluded vacation rental is surrounded by beautiful fresh Catskills water. A former 25-acre trout hatchery and private park, this home sits on a nice pond with a waterfall into the confluence of two creeks. The sound of running water will keep you company by day and lull you to sleep at night. The 3-level house is well designed for vacationers, with separate bedrooms, bathrooms and porches on different floors. There are 3 bedrooms plus a sleeping alcove, 3 full baths, 2 living rooms, 2 porches, and 2 kitchens. The main kitchen overlooks the pond, as does a sunny deck and pleasant patio. Porches overlook the streams and make great reading spots. DVD player and wireless internet. Swimming holes abound! Five minutes to Liberty, the farmers market and Route 17, 15 minutes to Catskill Park.
The winter is a gorgeous time to stay at my home and Holiday Mountain skiing is only 15 minutes away. There is a cozy gas fireplace in the downstairs suite and central heating throughout. Sitting at the kitchen table looking at the pond, perhaps seeing the muskrats play and the deer passing by is a winter treat.
I'm happy to answer your questions and figure out how to make your visit a delightful retreat.
Sabrina was a great host and the house was truly "magical". Nested in a forest by a lake, and surrounded by the sounds of a waterfall, the experience is so tranquil and relaxing. Sabrina stocks the house well with all necessities, and kindly accommodated a few special requests. The layout of the very spacious house is great for families and friends, with 3 separate living spaces inside as well as 2 balconies. The house is filled with beautiful art and so tastefully designed. It was such a joy to stay there, will be going back again soon!
Sabrina was an excellent host. She provided us with terrific information about the area and was very quick to get back to me via text and email. The house is eclectic and comfortable! It was clean, the kitchen was very functional and there were more than enough bathrooms. There is plenty of space to spread out both inside and outside the house. Great stay!
I can't even begin to tell you how amazing the house is, or how wonderful the weekend that we spent there was.
Isolated from civilization, next to a lake, a fun house with lots of things to do and feel like you're really away from everything.
We will definitely come back, words don't do this house justice! Sabrina's house really is magical, especially for visitors that know how to make the most of the trip.
Sabrina was a great host. She was very responsive and welcoming. Her home is on a gorgeous piece of property and having my morning coffee with the view from her back deck could not be beat! It is a very quiet and calm environment, so a good choice for those who want to get away from it all.
Sabrina's house has a warm and rustic vibe to it. Our favorite thing to do was to sit out on the deck overlooking her pond with a cold beer. It's secluded but close enough to shops and a few restaurants. Nice walking tracks around there as well.
Just as described with access and clear usage requests to some of the home's best amenities. A cozy escape, magical is really the right word for Sabrina's home and she, herself, made the stay all the more enjoyable with a warm welcome and open communication.
My family and my pup had a wonderful stay at Sabrina's house over Memorial weekend! We loved the location of the house, off the grid, tucked away in the woods with a pond right outside. The main floor is a great place to gather, the master bedroom is upstairs and there are 2 more bedrooms downstairs. There are also 3 full bathrooms, which was awesome. The stairs are a bit steep, but the downstairs has a private door to the exterior, so it was great to have an easy access. Sabrina keeps her place very clean and well prepared for guests as well as checked in to see if we needed anything. I had the pleasure of meeting her and she is honest, kind and thoughtful. My dad said it was the best Memorial Weekend he can remember. We can't wait to return to escape city life again! Thanks Sabrina!!!
