Photos and Description of this 14 bedroom holiday villa in Kauneonga Lake - The Homestead, Entire House

Sprawling lakefront home with 14 bedrooms, walking distance to restaurants

The Homestead is a sprawling, recently-renovated home on White Lake, available for large family gatherings and corporate retreats utilizing the Main House with its 11 bedrooms, accommodating 22, or adding the attached Cottage, bringing the total to 14 bedrooms, sleeping up to 28. Tastefully-appointed, with lake views from most rooms in the house, this special waterfront property offers comfort and relaxation, convenient to myriad amenities in this pretty part of The Catskills, just 1hr 45mins from the George Washington Bridge.

The northern area along White Lake, the deepest lake in Sullivan County, is called Kauneonga Lake. Guests can enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking and taking in the dramatic sunsets that color the sky directly across the lake. The water is about chest-deep at the end of the dock, but then gets much deeper, and there is a float to swim out to. For those with their own boats (a kayak and water toys are included, but the zippy motor boat is not), you may bring it and dock it at the house.

The heart of the Main House is a bright, appealing, open plan space that includes the modern kitchen, with its miles of granite countertops, two sinks, two dishwashers, and a breakfast bar; a lounge with comfy sectional that faces an elegant stone fireplace; and another seating area around the media center, for relaxed cable TV and movie viewing. Light streams through the 3 sets of sliding doors that open onto the extensive wrapround deck and offer lake views.

Off this Great Room, a corridor leads to the 11 bedrooms, five of which open onto the deck, and seven of which are either en suite or with a jack-and-jill bathroom. At the far end of the house, upstairs, are two bedrooms, one bath, that could suit a family quite well, with one bedroom featuring two twins and a day bed, the other a queen, and the shared bath has a tub/shower.

There is a butler's pantry that's really another room, off the other side of the Great Room, which includes another refrigerator, sink and storage. This is part of a breezeway that connects the Main House with The Cottage, via a door in that room that is locked when not in use.

The Cottage has a cozy feel, with its floral prints and country style. Deep, comfortable seating in the living room, which has two large bay windows looking out onto the deck, is arranged near the wood stove, creating an appealing spot yearround.

The kitchen has a center island with breakfast bar, and the usual appliances. A separate dining room faces the front of the building, which enjoys wonderful sunlight at breakfast time. The three bedrooms are upstairs, with a king bed in the master, and a private bathroom with a shower. The other two bedrooms (two twins and a queen), share a bathroom that has a tub/shower.

The Cottage, which is about 1,800 square feet, is available from spring through fall as an add-on to a rental of the Main House (3 bedrooms + 11 bedrooms, about 5,600 square feet). After New Year's the Main House closes, but The Cottage may be rented on its own. Ice fishing enthusiasts will find this a front-and-center location with plenty of comforts.

The hamlet of Kauneonga Lake, a three minute walk from the house, buzzes most of the year with restaurants, a bakery and a couple of shops. A short drive will take you to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, which is the jewel in the crown of Sullivan County, boasting an impressive concert line-up in summer, and several fairs and festivals during the autumn.
