Catskills farmhouse with studio

House - Entire home/apt · New Rd, Bovina Center, NY 13740, United States

The Space

Colonial style farmhouse on 16 acres of woods and fields. Close to hiking, skiing, bike trails, ponds, reservoirs, and the very quaint towns of Bovina and Andes. Internet, cable, microwave, cappuccino machine, washer/dryer. Antique/contemporary mix interior with art from friends( I'm an artist and run a gallery in Brooklyn), kitchen is original with 60's metal cabinets, some new track lights, good new stove and old fridge. Bath is small and unspectacular, but serviceable. Upstairs are two bedrooms.One with a queen-sized bed and furnished with grandfather clock and antique dresser. The other upstairs bedroom has children's toys, books, games, and one child's bed. Downstairs is another nice bedroom with a queen sized bed, semi-healthy cacti and nice morning light. Downstairs living room has a fireplace and a sofa bed. There's a patio with a large new Weber grill and rustic table and chairs. Skylit studio with good light for artists or writers. Nice place to get some work done in peace or just relax. Very quiet, beautiful valley views. There are about 70 mature blueberry bushes in front, that come ripe in mid to late July, and are incredible. The next door, part time neighbors have a gorgeous, classic barn that is nice to contemplate when drinking martinis in the evening while sitting on the stone steps. Spectacular view of the night sky from the fire pit up the hill is also wonderful, especially when there are comets and owls and coyotes out.

  • My boyfriend, our two dogs, and I stayed at Eric's over Christmas and New Years'. It was the perfect winter getaway. The fireplace was cozy at night. Eric's kitchen was well equipped. The property is beautiful and our dogs had a great time walking on the country roads. Eric's guide to the nearby towns was very helpful.

  • Eric's home was picture perfect, a very cozy and comfortable place to spend a late fall weekend. We had a great time hiking, grilling some local meats and sitting by the fire taking in the beautiful views. The house is charming, clean and thoughtfully decorated, and Eric was helpful and quick to respond to questions. We would love to come back any time of year.

  • We had a great time at Eric's and would look forward to a return visit. The house is located in a lovely part of the Catskills and Eric has plenty of great ideas to keep you busy exploring and enjoying the area.

  • A delayed review, but here it is! Stayed here with my boyfriend and our Yorkie in August and had a superb stay. Remote, quiet, scenic and exactly what we needed for a quick weekend getaway.

  • This was our second stay at the house. It was much cleaner this time and everything was exactly as Eric had described. Our group had 4 people and we had a great time cooking, grilling, and traveling around to nearby farms and markets in Delhi and Margaretville. We also went bowling at Vasta's. The house is remote, but within a 20-30 minute drive you can find many things to do if you are looking for some recreational activities. The sky is beautiful at night and well worth the drive from the city.

  • We had a lovely winter getaway at his farmhouse... the views and the property were amazing! Cozy, warm house... everything needed to get away form the city!

  • We had a lovely stay in Eric's farmhouse. It was the perfect place to spend the holidays. We made lovely fires in the fireplace, cooked great dinners in the big open kitchen, and enjoyed the snowy views out of the big windows. The surrounding land could not have been more lovely--especially the big beautiful red barn. The nearby towns had everything we needed (groceries, firewood, wine:) It must also be wonderful in summer--but the snow made it seem like heaven!

  • We loved Eric's farmhouse. The place was huge, cozy, and warm. The kitchen was great and well stocked, the surrounding fields were wonderful for our dog, I highly recommend staying here for a weekend get away from the city!

  • My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Eric's farmhouse last weekend. It was very spacious, secluded, and a great place to relax away from the city. Between the grill and kitchen we made a great dinner of local steak and then relaxed by the fireplace. it was also a great spot to see lots of the surrounding small towns and beautiful countryside. Overall, a great value on a large, functional house that is well maintained and offers access to beautiful places throughout the Catskills.

  • We came up to the place early on Saturday morning to get ready for a wedding in Roxbury and our host was very flexible about the check-in times. The house was everything we had hoped for - breathtaking views, large yard, lots of space, and a full-kitchen. Luckily there was also an Internet connection to help guide us to the wedding since cell-reception is spotty. (A bridge was out nearby that added an extra wrinkle to our plans so be sure you doublecheck your routes if you're planning on traveling somewhere in the area.) The views were so incredible and the house so cozy, we didn't want to leave. Would book again in an instant!
