About Kelly

Victor, Flynn and basset hound Mason and I live in Washington Heights in Manhattan. We are both actors who have about 20 Law and Order episodes between us! Victor also teaches acting and I am a sales agent with Halstead Properties on the UWS. I moved to NYC from the Mountains of TN and when I was searching for a property I was drawn to the Catskill Mountains.

Kelly purchased this house in 2005

Why Kelly chose Catskills

We first got a tiny cabin in the woods in this charming village of Phoenicia. We then upgraded to this lovely house so that we could share it family and friends. We love renting our out our home and have found that 90% of our guests are repeat visitors!

We love being in this area as it an all season home. Plenty to do in Summer and Winter. I find that I end up hanging out just enjoying the solitude that the mountains bring.

What makes this house unique

Our screened in porch and goldfish pond are two of my most favorite things about this house. In addition there is plenty of room for family and friends to come and visit.

The fireplace in a winter snow is spectacular as you can look out on the falling snow through our huge windows. Our home is slowly being upgraded and we like to keep our guests in mind when doing our updating. We recently updated the kitchen and are in the process of designing a new lower level to incorporate a great playroom for kids and adults!!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really nice time in this home. It is clean, fully stocked and the decor is very nice, yet homey and comfortable. It has a nice yard for kids to run around in and is private, yet close to attractions, restaurants and the charming town of Phoenicia. This is a relaxing place with enough room for a family to spread out. The owner was responsive and accommodating -- I recommend it and would go back again.

A great place!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming here for several years. It's a large and comfortable house in a beautiful setting, 20 minutes from Woodstock, 5 minutes from Phoenicia, and with great places for fishing, mountain lakes and trails nearby. Just sitting on the deck enjoying the view, feeding koi in the fish pond, or reading by a warm fire all add up to a terrific stay that is only enhanced by Kelly, who is a gracious and charming host. We highly recommend it.

Great place and host

  • 5 of 5

The house was big, comfy, quiet, well decorated, on beautiful property, and a quick ride to town. The host was very responsive throughout our stay. The screened in porch was wonderful.

Perfect for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This summer rental was perfect for our family vacation. It was centrally located to many activities and the supermarket in Boiceville was a plus. The house was spacious and quite comfortable for 6 adults and 5 children, ages 1-7. The kitchen was well equipped, lines were plentiful, as well as household supplies. My grandchildren particularly enjoyed catching frogs and snakes in the pond. Also, any problem that arose or questions of concern were answered by Kelly promptly.
