Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Samsonville - 1850's Catskills Farmhouse!

2 bedrooms; 1 loft/study; 2 full baths; Sleeps 6-7, Full Kitchen; Full Laundry

An 1850's picturesque farmhouse w/ modern amenities tucked in the fold of a mountain only 2 hours from NYC! Originally built by a land owner before leaving off to the civil war, my sun-drenched home today is the perfect weekend getaway surrounded by natural rock-outcroppings on 7 acres in New York's desirable Catskills Forest Preserve. With a natural pond and invitingly precious, my peaceful retreat is fully furnished with full size kitchen and all the comforts of home. The welcoming living room with original stone fireplace is a gathering place in winter and summer. Private master bedroom. Dining area accommodates a sizeable group. Located 5 minutes from the Ashokan Reservoir and convenient to Woodstock, Phoenicia, New Paltz, Stone Ridge, Saugerties, Kingston. Ski at both Hunter & Bellayre; X-country skiing at NewPaltz Minnewaska State Park - Hiking, biking, running, rock-climbing, fishing (Esopus Creek 10 minutes away), swimming, tubing, and boating in the summer! Antiques, shopping, great restaurants, picturesque views & waterfalls, all within short drives.

From Sweet Sue's, home to the area's best big breakfast with plate size pancakes to The Sportsman and Brio's - friendly restaurants abound with friends and families hanging around in this quintessential mountain town~

Woodstock - Famous for years and still with a vibe, a fun stop for art, music, events, shops and restaurants with a film festival each fall.

Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place!

If you are looking for a place where you can unplug and totally relax this is the place for you. The house is comfortable has all the amenities necessary and is so charming, each room seems to lead to another room. Our favorite place was the porch, each morning we would turn up the tunes (Barbara has an awesome selection of Buddha Bar CD's) and allow the sounds to travel outside while we enjoyed the final days of summer. Thank you Barbara for opening your place to us!

Wonderful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Barbara's beautiful mountain home. Comfortable, spacious, inviting, warm, easy to find your way and make it your own for a few days are just a few words that we would use to describe our stay. Barbara was an absolute pleasure to deal with. helpful, kind, responsive, available, and informative with all the different questions asked. The location was near to many great sites and hiking trails. We enjoyed lazier mornings of coffee and outdoors as we really just slowed down and enjoyed the company of each other. A true gem in all ways, shapes, and sizes!

Where do you live?

Lovely house.

  • 4 of 5

The house is a beautiful, cosy old farmhouse in a very pretty spot. It was very comfortable for 4 adults and two kids. There is a loft bed for kids but getting up there is trickier than you might imagine so not great for younger kids. Ours are 11 and did ok. The information we got from Barbara was very comprehensive and she was very helpful. It's quite isolated so we brought most of our food with us and glad we did. The kids took snowboarding lessons at Hunter mountain, about 45 minutes away. Bellaryre is closer but smaller. We spent most of our time at the house as it was so very cosy so I can't say much about restaurants in the area. We would like to go back in the summer and maybe we'll get out a bit more. It's a very pretty spot, peaceful and comfortable. Very good value for money overall.

Wonderful, we love it!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a gift for my daughter that turn fifteen and wanted to see the snow falling and feel by herself all that cabin in the woods lifestyle. As magic, it snow the afternoon we arrived.

The house was so cozy and beautiful that she and her sister could not be happier. There was a small bed in a loft in the first floor where they spent a lot of time playing, they love that place. We also get to warm the house with the fireplace and make smores in the firepit eventhough the temperature was 0 that day. We also get to cook an bake a cake and some cookies because the kitchen is really complete with everything you can need. I could keep numbering all the things we love but I will resume by telling you that we loved every single moment and eveeything in the house. Bill the property manager gave us excellent customer service and was always available for us. I am for sure returning to this house because it was wonderful, we love it.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoy this rental. It was a great getaway after school ended with the kids. We enjoy the outdoors and did a little exploring and a campfire with Snores. We loved the house. It was so cozy. We're totally doing this again next summer!

A great place for hikers, bikers, skiers, artists, writers, poets, cooks, bakers or folks wanting to get away for peaceful solitude, or plan a fun vacation with friends. Near all warm weather activities and close to all Catskills ski resorts for snowy winter stays. 15mi. to Woodstock, Phoenicia and many small towns in between!

Other Activities: Rock climbing, skiing, tubing and spas

Golf: Several 4 star rated courses in the area

Stone Dock ; Wiltwyck ; Alapaha ; New Paltz ; Nevele Grande ; Apple Greens ; Dinsmore

Ski: Belleayre and Hunter are both wonderful day trips from the house. Nestled just about half way in between the two locations, either destination works -or- trying both is fun for mixing things up. Enjoy the scenic drive in the morning and relaxing at the end of the day coming to the full kitchen for fun dinners with friends~
