“For anyone looking for a natural tonic to urban life this place is the ticket.” – Rebecca 2011

Summer in the Catskill Mountains is in full swing within nature and festivities. Trails that make your heart soar are awaiting your presence.

At Streamside one can cook & then dine privately with your own romantic meal in a classic diner booth, while enjoying mountain picture views.

Unwind and rejuvenate in this unique artist-designed, sun-illuminated, streamside apartment that embodies the Catskill Mountains both inside and out.

Under a star-studded sky away from city glare enjoy the fireflies dancing through the night. If a night is cool, relax in front of a cozy fire.

Surrounded by mountains and sky, and rushing streams, this is an ideal haven to recharge and reboot, dream, & be inspired.

Summer Swim in the refreshing waters of the "on-property" swimming hole and relax with the naturally bubbling Jacuzzi as the stream fills the swimming hole. After swimming one can walk along the stream wilderness or observe the aquatic bird life.

Unique, very cool streamside apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is nestled in the Catskills alongside a stream that we enjoyed to its fullest! So peaceful in its surroundings and sound of quick running creek. The housing is very cool and uniquely decorated. We spent a little time in Phoenicia, a little more time in Woodstock and even more time hiking the woods & mountains - and amazing reservoir about 15 miles away. There were a couple little things that could be improved upon, but we discussed with the owner and probably won't be an issue for future visitors. Thank you for allowing us to rent your awesome space!

Not as expected

  • 3 of 5

It was alittle worrisome there was no fire alarm or fire extinguisher and the property was slightly cluttered. We also felt strange there was someone else living there in the downstairs apartment. The site explained it was secluded but it didn't feel as though. It was cozy at night and the hummingbirds were a nice site. The stream was enjoyable but it was disappointing to find out the owner had to be present to light the fire pit near the stream. Overall the streamside and scenery was amazing. Ulster county itself is a great place to visit. Ian did checkin to make sure we enjoyed our stay or needed anything which was kind.

Fantastic remote getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Ian's. The streamside was beautiful and the actual accommodations were more than we ever could've expected. Private and serene. Be sure to bring an extra bottle of wine because it gets pretty hard to leave waterfront when the sun starts setting. Also plan on spending an extra hour or so in one of the best showers ever. Thanks again Ian!

Great base for our outings in the area

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was roomy and well appointed. The starter breakfast supplies were much appreciated. The shower was great too - always nice after a long day in the outdoors. We will definitely try to book again when we return to the area.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your group stay. Come back when water is down to make the most of your fishing the Esopus. Thanks for the rare beer.

Very Happy!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with hospitality of the owner. we had very interesting and fun 3 days. Back yard leads to the river where he had a nice set-up of table, chairs and bonfire that made our nights very romantic. He was also very helpful with giving us good suggestions about surrounding sightseeing. So, we are very happy and highly recommend renting Ian's place.

True taste of Catskills

Artist owned property on Esopus river. Owner was a gracious host and he was diligent in knowing what you need for an enjoyable stay. Artwork and nature surround you and it is a unique look into a wonderfull upstate NY lifestyle. We would go back! Thanks, I. Cheers!
