The house and property
Interaction with Guests
The rental is for the house. I have a property manager that helps with any questions during your stay; lives in the neighborhood and is there for that purpose.
In the heart of the Catskills where fresh air, hiking trails and beautiful scenery abounds!
Most guests arrive by car. Public transportation is available to the general area but not directly to the house so I recommend having transportation for getting around the local area.. Amtrak stops at Rhinecliff. Buses stop in Kingston, both about 20-25mins from the house. This said, folks have arrived by cab and tucked away for the weekend and had a blast.
Other Things to Note
A cozy get away also so close to all the modern amenities make this the perfect get-away home! I am in the Catskills Park Reserve so everyone is responsible for their own trash removal..easy enough to do... But fees applied for failure to do so. Let's Keep things beautiful~
ADD'L INFO: The Master bedroom is upstairs with plenty of floor space for infant beds etc). The front bedroom is a full mattress, sleeps 2 and next to the front foyer. The Back Study Day Bed is a proper twin mattress, sleeps 1. The sleeping loft is with ladder access in the back study and also sleeps 1 with a trundle mattress. Living room sofa often functions as 7th (sometimes 8th) sleeping space.
For your stay, I also have a property manager close by to help with any questions, if needed :D
