YOU WILL HAVE TO SIGN A POOL AND JACUZZI ADDENDUM WHICH WE WILL PROVIDE TO YOU. Privately situated on its own 6 acres in the Catskills close to hiking trails, skiing, white water rafting, golf, restaurants, gourmet farmers markets and more. This 2000 square foot spacious home with 14 ft. ceilings accommodates up to 5 adults (perfect for two couples) and is fully loaded with two private bedrooms / queen beds, two full bathrooms, an out-door shower and a working fire place.

It also includes: 4 person jacuzzi, an enormous heated pool, a gas grill, an indoor stone wall wood burning fire place, an outdoor fire pit, dishwasher, washer & dryer, wireless internet, flat screen TV with satellite/cable, a Blue Tooth System, hard-wood and tile floors, and the bedding and towels are provided.

The pool sits back on the property and is surrounded by artisan slate stone work, lush gardens and a new wood deck with oversized gazebo chairs and tables making it the perfect spot for a social gathering or relaxing.

Enter this enjoyable country compound through the private gate and a little ways up the driveway nestled in a park like setting surrounded by lush trees and completely secluded from any visible neighbors or traffic. The grounds are professionally landscaped and well manicured also, the perfect backdrop for a range of perennials and annuals, bird watching and a zen-like pond.

This location is 2 hours driving distance from NYC. Secluded and much of the area is forever wild land but the best part is the proximity to the mountains/town: Phoenicia (5 min.), Woodstock (10 min.), Hunter (20 min.), Wyndam (25 min.) and Bellayre (25 min.).

Please send me a brief description of your travel and your group. No smoking in-house and no large parties. Thank you!

A beautiful home in a quiet, secluded area. Exactly what we were looking for to recharge from our hectic city life.

James's home is absolute perfection. We stocked up on groceries on our way into town at the grocery store close by and then didn't leave again until it was time to leave. It is the perfect escape from the city. The pool is amazing! We loved spending time around the fire pit and the hot tub as well. 5 star stay!!!

Just came back from a lovely long weekend at Jim's place in Mt Tremper. The house is spacious, clean and well-appointed, the pool is huge and the hot tub is the perfect place to relax and stargaze. The location is great - it feels very secluded but you are also only a few miles from hiking trails, cute towns and great restaurants. Jim was a great host - very responsive and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

James's home is in a lovely part of the world. The property is very secluded surrounded by forest. Lots of local farm to table restaurants with a few minutes drive, including The Pines which just opened with celebrity chefs making debuts each week. James is a very responsive host and quick to deal with most issues we had. The highlight was sitting in the hot tub under a blanket of stars and cooking s'mores over the fire pit.

What a lovely place! We had a wonderful time, it was so relaxing and peaceful. The property is very private and it was nice to have this vacation property all to ourselves. The large windows in the living room/sun room allowed for 180 degree views of the surrounding grounds and the skylights were such a special touch to the space. Snowshoe rabbits and birds of many types were our fellow residents on the grounds. The hot tub was clean and freshly filled just as James informed us it would be. The pool was still closed since we were there off season so we will have to return in the summer months when it is open, it does have a nice big deck for laying out in the sun. James promptly answered any questions we had via IM, which made settling into the space so much easier. We really enjoyed having all the comforts of home while on vacation. We liked that though we were tucked away in a quiet place, we could take a drive to Phoenicia diner for brunch or to the store for any groceries we needed. There are lots of things to do about half hours drive in most directions. There are quite a few antique shops around if you like antiquing. Also, stop by the specialty chocolate shop, Fruition, on route 28. They've got all sorts of chocolate they make there, very delicious! Thank you James for sharing your beautiful home with us. We look forward to staying there again soon!

This house and location is amazing! If you're looking for a secluded home to relax and unwind, this is for you. The hot tub out back was great to use after a day of antiquing in the surrounding towns. Everything was clean. The home has huge windows and multiple skylights, so you really feel the nature all around you even when you're inside. Wish we could have used the pool - we'll have to come back in the summer! One other gem - the Bluetooth speakers are a nice touch, especially that he has them indoors and outdoors.
