Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy nature. Just have to bring yourself and food. Everything you need is at the house including BBQ pit, fire pit, w/d, pool table, screened in porch, kayak and more… The lake is filled with fish and only few feet away from the house. Even though I was solo it is very family friendly and very close to everything you need. Had a great time relaxing and watching the deer and other animals on the property. Very privet and friendly people in the community. It’s one of those places where everyone waves to each other. Really nice change from NYC people I am used to. Fishing was great and other lakes are close by as well. I will definitely go back when I need some down time. The owners were really attentive and helpful. I give it an A++++ for a nice quite down time retreat.

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved it! We had Grandpa (me) and Grandma, our 23 year-old daughter and boyfriend, our son and his wife and our 20 month old grand daughter and our little dog Muggs. Every one of us had a great time, from family cooking in the spacious kitchen to kayaking, biking and enjoying smores around the backyard fire pit! The house was more than comfortable and we enjoyed the downstairs play room and table top games and the big bonus for us as huge hockey fans...we were able to catch the NHL playoff games at night and enjoy them together in the living room too! Great wildlife on the lake! Nesting geese and red-winged-blackbirds on the island, various warblers, plenty of turtles, deer and if I'm correct, we even spotted a beaver not far from the dock. Plenty of privacy too. The houses around the lake are nicely spread out so it gives you that nice feeling of being alone, but not isolated. Our only problem was not being able to stay longer! The Smith's...perfect hosts!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to thank Kevin for his terrific hospitality. The house was awesome. Loved the view of the lake. Excellent bicycle riding around the lake and surrounding areas. It was close to Monticello Raceway and all other Catskills attractions.

The house has everything you need for a memorable stay. The owner really wants his guests to have a terrific time. When the cable television service did not have the channel I wanted he offered to have the cable company install new equipment to get that channel. I declined since I was only there for three days but I did tell Kevin how much I appreciated the offer.

I can't wait for my next visit to this beautiful house and the Catskills.

Absolutely fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin was the best HomeAway host we could have ever asked for. Before we even arrived he was sending link after link of activities taking place in the area for us to check out. The house was so charming, spacious, clean, and made for the perfect winter getaway. The lake was gorgeous and we had such a great experience getting snowed in and having to stay an extra night. Kevin was so gracious and was concerned about our safety so he gave us our extra snowed in night free of charge which was too kind.

In summary: The location was picturesque. The house was adorable. Kevin was fantastic to work with. Anyone looking for a little winter (or summer) escape will be extremely happy they chose to stay here.

The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.

In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few. The continue to add top artists each summer / fall seasons. Lawn chair rentals make it affordable for all.

If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum. This museum is quite the unexpected treat. Original artifacts, music, history, movie clips and much more. Group tours given on Saturdays. Easy 1 to 2 hour tour. See the actual festival site, hills and ponds.
