About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, renovated farmhouse on a large country estate

White House, having been recently refurbished, is part of a large estate, which encompasses a working organic farm (tours are available with prior notice). This home is a great base for exploring the unspoiled area, or for creating memories on the grounds at home.

Downstairs, the home features a generous living room with gas stove, and a spacious country kitchen that opens to the dining area. There is a full bathroom (with walk-in shower) on this level.

The four bedrooms are upstairs off a central landing. Two feature queen beds (each could be considered the master), there is a full bedroom, and a smaller bedroom with one twin. Upstairs the bathroom includes a tub/shower.

The Neversink River, home to spritely native brook trout, runs through the expansive property, and barring a drought, has a swimming hole that is sure to refresh. You will be drawn to it if for no other reason than to watch the changing light on the tumbling waters.

In 2010, a local couple launched Neversink Farm, an organic farm producing vegetables, honey, a huge swath of cut flowers, and chickens (fresh eggs, anyone?) in the fields behind the barn. The farmers are delighted to give tours of their operation, but please note: renters are not permitted to wander the farm (for liability and safety reasons), without their presence. Learn more about the organic farm at www.neversinkfarm.com. There is a farm store on site which sells fresh organic produce grown on the premises and eggs from free range chickens raised organically.

Next door up the road a bit (walking distance, but not too close), Halls Mills is another Red Cottage rental on the same estate, which sleeps 8. So larger groups or two families who would like to vacation together can find accommodation for 15 people max between them.

Magical Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ask me about a magical respite 2 hours from NYC and I will say the perfect White House. You will find it not far off of 17N between the 2 very calm villages of Curry and Claryville in the Neversink.

Look quickly to your left as you turn off of 55 onto the Claryville Road. Marked by a red and white maple leaf sign is a small home stand that sells very very fresh eggs, beautiful pottery and the kind of maple syrup they write about in New England lore.

Farther up about 2 miles the White House sits off the barely used road. It is a large and comfortable farmhouse that must hold the happy memories of its many years because it feels like its smiling. A current kitchen and comfortable furnishing will make you feel at home in the spacious accommodations.

Out the back and around the pasture is one of the best fly fishing streams in America. Or, if you like, take a dip in its refreshing waters. The later is only recommended in the summer and early fall. We biked and hiked and sat around the fire pit at night and watched the glow worms.

Next door is a small organic farm. I did not inquire nor did I see if they had a stand but just knowing someone is farming made my view and attitude better.

We have come in summer for sun and swim and winter for snow and skiing. Equally enjoyable.

I have overcome my selfishness by writing this review. In the past I wanted to keep this secret getaway private, but now that I have been here again and next door at Halls Mills often enough, I am willing to share. Be warned, it is hard to leave and you will want to return. The road to here is not far and the rewards great.

Beautiful, historic home with country charm and room for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

The White House was great for our Labor Day getaway to the Catskills. The location was gorgeous and the walk down the path to the river was very scenic. Finishes were modern but maintained the distinct character of a unique and historic mid-1800's farmhouse. The kids loved waking up each morning and looking out the windows at the farm. The owners were very responsive to messages. I definitely recommend this property for an unforgettable getaway.

A wonderful place to stay for a weekend or longer

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent location for an extended stay--a month in my case. The house--dating from the mid-19th century--has been completely remodeled inside (though with some of the original 11-inch floorboarding kept). Kitchen, bathrooms (upstairs, downstairs) and bedrooms are completely modern. Comfortable country furniture. The chief value is location. The property extends behind the house down to the Neversink River, a wonderful place to wade (with small kids), swim, or just sun out. Part of the property is occupied by an organic farm with a very extensive local customer base. The nearby woods afford some hiking, Slide Mountain is a 12-mile drive for a real hike. There are local places for breakfast, lunch, takeout, or basic groceries; the organic farm provides natural foods. For a real shop, go to Liberty, 13 miles away. Nights are quiet (road traffic dies off after dark), cool, restful. This is a great place for a quiet country stay.

Beautifully restored historic farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It has been beautifully restored with every modern comfort added but the historical integrity of the original design has been completely maintained. I am an architect and totally appreciated this. Not only is the house great, but the landscape is stunning. The house sits in a valley and out back is a (quiet) working organic farm where we bought fresh vegetables most days. Then, beyond the fields is a lovely stream where we swam every day. In the winter, one can cross country ski at Frost Valley, about a 15 minute drive from the house. And of course, in every direction, there is fantastic hiking. A highly recommended getaway!
