Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Tumblin' Falls House is perched high a'top a cliff overlooking the very beautiful Shinglekill Falls. This circa 1890's Dutch-Victorian has been updated to current lifestyle standards. A newly renovated country kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, with WIFI throughout. We have multilevel decks and a hot tub, overlooking the cascading stream and falls. A country setting with trails, informal gardens, and several natural pools. On the first floor are the dining rooms, kitchen, living room and a full bath. The second floor has 4 guest rooms, two with king beds, two with queens, and a sitting room with a double sofabed. There are two full baths on the second floor.

We are near hiking in Catskill Park, mountain biking,skiing ,and zip lining in Windham & Hunter. Shopping in the nearby towns of Catskill, Woodstock and Hudson, We are also near numerous farms for purchasing local produce. There are many varied and wonderful restaurants in close proximity. There is much to do in the area, but to be honest, we find that most of our guests wander down to the falls with a picnic and a good book,wallow in the pools, then return to barbeque on the deck to complete their day! It is all up to you.

About Linda Curry

My husband Hugh knew about this property before I ever did. He used to speak of it often. It was the summer home of his soccer captain and roommate from College at UPenn. With Andy being an only child, and off to medical school in Brussels the house sat vacant for several years.It became know as the haunted party house and fell into disrepair by local kids who found it to be an interesting hangout. So in 1983 after a bad weekend when kids had broken several windows etc., Andy's Mom decided to sell. Needless to say, I was immediatly dispatched to finally see the house I had heard so much about. For me it was LOVE at first sight.Hugh needed no convincing.

Linda Curry purchased this house in 1983

Why Linda Curry chose Purling

I don't think we need to say why. The Falls, the sounds of nature, the trees, even the ROCKS.That's an inside joke, my husband is something of a rock hound.

What makes this house unique

Being in the midst of all this natural beauty and still just 15 minutes from anything else you may need.

Everything was great. Very peaceful property.

  • 4 of 5

11 of us stayed here for my daughter's 18th birthday. Had a great time. Bring lots of bottled water. Sulfer smell in the water was the only negative but it's the entire area and it was definitely liveable situation. The house was very large and PLENTY of room for everyone. The views and hiking are amazing. Thanks Linda and Hugh. Would definitely return.

Our own hot tub overlooking a waterfall!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem. This property is amazing. My husband and I took our 5 and 7 year old boys, and my 70 year old mom, to this property for 2 nights. We all had a great time. The boys ran around the property playing in the leaves and throwing frisbees and footballs, my husband made a fire in the fire pit, my mom and I cooked feasts in the full equipped kitchen and served them on the numerous tables on the property (the dining room, the front porch, the back deck, etc...), we hiked in the area, we walked down to the waterfall and threw rocks in the ponds, we soaked in the hot tub, and all the while we had the most beautiful view of the waterfall. We were in heaven. I can't wait to go back with our extended family for a longer stay!

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Falling asleep to the sound of the falls, waking up to see them through the window, having coffee and gazing out into the green and the water--this was the most _peaceful_ trip I had ever been able to take. The kitchen was fully stocked with pantry items, our group grilled and cooked dinner each night and just enjoyed the house. Saugerties is not far if you want a little trip around a town. The closest liquor store (Spirits Of Cairo Nys) has a friendly owner and a dog that demands pets. The locals that live around the house are friendly and you may find they pop in on you to sate their curiosity sometimes :) The rooms were clean and the decor was interesting--every time you looked in a corner you saw something new.

Thanks so much for the great trip!

Fell in love with the Falls House

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 8 super close friends traveling for the weekend to celebrate my husbands 40th we were looking for the perfect getaway spot. We couldn't have picked better. The house is tucked away down a beautiful tree lined road, surrounded by beautiful natural pools and your own private waterfall which can be accessed from the side of the house. The views from the house especially the deck were amazing. We enjoyed many meals outdoors by the fire enjoying the breathtaking views and crisp air.

The house itself has ample room, comfy rooms, lots of privacy for large groups traveling together and prettt much comes stocked with all of your basic essentials. We plan on making this an annual visit! See you next year!!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

My family joined together for sibling reunion. The host was great. The location is fantastic set deep in the woods down a private lane with a great view of the waterfall which is a very short walk. The decking and amenities were comfortable.

The house is a bit old and cluttered inside. It has a lot character.

Gorgeous Spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely wonderful. Linda was a great help for us, even making sure the house was stocked with groceries upon our arrival. The falls are amazing and right outside of the front door.
