About Lois

NYC professionals who use the home as as second home; site of their wedding!

Lois purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Lois chose Catskills

The area is quiet and beautiful and the lifestyle there is simple and relaxing as compared to daily life in NYC.

What makes this farmhouse unique

It's a great house for family and friends to gather for barbeques and holidays. Autumn colors are stunning and the backyard makes a great place to go sledding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has to be one of the most restful and pleasant vacations we have ever had. The house was wonderful! Even the 3-year-old didn't want to leave the house. We cooked and ate and read and took naps and had a great time doing nothing. I will definitely recommend your house to others who want a Catskill getaway.

Beautiful spot in Livingston Manor!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our two boys and two dogs over Columbus Day weekend. There was enough room for everyone to relax and the house was very comfortable. Our boys loved the jacuzzi tub. The backyard was HUGE and absolutely amazing with the hammock, tire swing, deck & dog pen. Our boys are already asking to go back again soon!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend during a family members wedding at theThe Arnold House. Beautiful location with a large yard to sit back on the deck and enjoy the serene setting. A stocked fire pit that was easy to light after a night out. Clean indoors with a rustic feel.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We really did not want to leave this beautiful house and property, we absolutely loved it. House has so much character and comfort, kitchen is very well stocked for cooking and dining room is spacious and inviting. Outside property is beautiful, even picked up a few apples from the trees, enjoyed sitting by the fire pit as well. As per owner suggestion went to the Lake Superior Park, very nice area and swimming/boating available, however if you visit with small children please note that they do not allow any floating devices so if your child can't swim on their own, you will have to hold them or just let them play in the sand and close to shore. Also visited Sunday festival at Bethel Art center, lots of fun and in close proximity to the house. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Perfect Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The house was a lovely oasis on a mostly quiet street with a beautiful backyard--it was a perfect fit for my family and me on a long weekend. Thank you for sharing your home and especially for its well-stocked kitchen.

Great escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I along with our dog stayed for a long weekend in this fantastic house. It was definitely too much room for just the 3 of us, but we didn't mind. This property would be great for a family gathering and could easily accommodate 8 people with plenty of room. All of the rooms are very clean and have their own character. Lois, the owner, was very good about giving us detailed instructions on where to find everything as well as great recommendations on what to do in the area. Lake Superior State Park is a short drive from the property and has a great place where you can let your dog swim. There is a great backyard with a deck and fire pit, which is where we spent most of our long weekend. Really a great place to unwind and get some fresh mountain air. We will definitely be back.

Great Relaxing Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Magical Catskills Farmhouse for a quiet getaway. The accommodations were excellent! Very clean! We enjoyed the quiet, comfortable, relaxing nature of the location. Exactly what we were hoping for! Lois was very helpful in providing lots of information about local resources for food, shopping, and even ice cream!
