The perfect home for a family vacation or group getaway.

The space
Moon Shine Farm is a 200-acre former dairy farm and secluded haven nestled in the Catskill Mountains. The property sits in a valley and offers a grand view of the surrounding mountains. This 5-bedroom, 2-bath vacation rental house for 12 is the perfect getaway to rest the soul and relax the mind!

In the winter of 1945, federal agents encamped at the home of Ralph Rose. They spent two weeks watching the comings and goings on Roses Brook Road. Believing they had enough evidence of a bootlegging operation, the agents raided the farmhouse of Angelo Melucci. Fifteen federal agents, troopers and a sheriff forcibly entered the homestead in the early morning of February 16th. Their diligence was rewarded, they found a still and over twelve hundred gallons of liquor, sugar and mash, in violation of the Prohibition laws in force at that time. The agents compensated the Rose Family for their weeks of room and board with the sugar they confiscated during the raid. A rare commodity and welcome gift during wartime rationing!
While bootlegging is no longer one of the activities on Roses Brook Road, you’re welcome to enjoy wide, clear skies and a fantastic view of the moon shining off of the pond. Enjoy your stay at Moon Shine Farm!
