All three bedrooms have cozy down duvets and extra soft white large bath towels are provided to make you feel pampered.

There is a large L shape couch with a queen bed pull out in the living room, and a full size stow away floor mattress fits the upstairs loft for kids.

The living room and dining room have gorgeous wide plank heart of pine floors, and the kitchen has travertine tile floors.

Beautifully renovated kitchen with lovely wood counters, breakfast bar with stools, four burner gas range and a deep undermount sink. The four sided windowed-kitchen is open to both the dining and living rooms and is definitely made for the chef in your group! The ice cream maker has turned out to be a hit, enjoy!

There are kayaks (2 adult one child) which you are welcome to use — incredible kayaking center just 5 minutes away.

There is excellent WiFi and a new Large Roku TV with live TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney, YouTube, Hulu etc). A new Bluetooth stereo connected to high end Klipsch RP 600M speakers awaits. Great sound for watching movies or listening to music through your phone/tablet. In addition there are 2 Vizio large portable speakers that will connect to your phone/tablet. Wake up with NPR in your bedroom, bring a speaker outside for tunes at the BBQ, or take it to the bathroom to listen to your favorite music while showering. You decide.

Note: while the house normally stays cool throughout the summer naturally, there are window ac units in all three bedrooms for the extra hot days.

Our housekeeper, Carrie, offers the option of a food and supply service. If you're interested, she can deliver prepared food or groceries, and any other items that you'd like to have in the house for your arrival. She also bakes festive cakes if you are having a special occasion. Let us know a few days in advance we’ll do our best to oblige:)

Where you’ll be

Margaretville, New York, United States

Our location is central to all Catskill activities. Margaretville is a lovely walkable town with a few very good restaurants, a large supermarket, and a superb golf course. Arkville is super quaint and it’s where you will find the antique train ride, a fun restored bowling center and a new sports center with an amazing indoor pool. Halcoltsville is tiny and charming and has the best kayaking on lake Wawaka and the iconic round barn farmers market. Roxbury is famous for its stately Victorians on Main Street, a thriving arts scene and a funky public radio station and it’s home to the beloved Plattekill ski mountain. Pine hill has Bellayre Ski center in winter & Bellayre beach in summer.
