About Doug McLaurine

My wife Robin and I are the proprietors of Roxbury General, a modern general store in Roxbury we opened in January of 2014. I retired from publishing 2013; Robin still works in publishing during the week and comes upstate on weekends. We love it here--the place, the people, the mountains and sky and rocks and water.

Why Doug McLaurine chose Denver

Roxbury Reverie offers a great getaway for people who enjoy a mountain setting. The house is in really good shape, and we refreshed it considerably. Having rented for some years up here before we bought our own place, we know what people need and want and have endeavored to outfit this house completely and comfortably. We want everyone to enjoy the Catskills and Roxbury as much as we do.

Roxbury Reverie is close to our Catskills home and business, so we can be very responsive to our guests.

What makes this house unique

Guests are entitled to 10% off all merchandise and bike rentals from Roxbury General.

Roxbury Reverie Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our five day retreat at Roxbury Reverie was an ideal experience. The immaculate house is thoughtfully appointed and we had fun cooking in the small, but perfectly appointed kitchen and loved using the magnificent fireplace each night. Coal and Crystal had a blast playing on the lawn and swimming in the pond. Highly recommended for families with well behaved dogs and those who are looking to decompress, in a scenic and serene setting. We look forward to returning ! The Shupack family -

Roxbury Reverie

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very accommodating to us. The home was perfect when we arrived. Loved how the home was decorated. Clean, organized, well-stocked. Very comfortable, very relaxing. The grounds and views outside were amazing. The foliage was at its peak! Beautiful. These owners take pride in their home and it truly shows!

Beautiful site, nice home, great place to relax

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our two high school and college aged children and two dogs. It was great for this configuration - three bedrooms and a comfortable living/dining area and huge deck. The kitchen is very well appointed and looks recently updated. The grounds are beautiful, and our dogs loved running through the yard and going in the pond. The property is a good jumping off point for Catskills hiking, and/or a good place to hang out on the deck and read. Just what we needed for the weekend. We hope to be back.

Great space and great setting

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Very quiet and peaceful setting, with a large space for the kids. House was just the right size for us. The owner was very delightful and accommodating, even bought us a bottle of champagne and let us help ourselves to his beer. I would recommend.

Beautiful, immaculate, relaxing........

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, just came back from our week stayed at Roxbury Reverie. Kids are already asking when are we going back. We just love everything about this place, not sure where to start. We started this family tradition to go to the country for a relaxing week/end on every July 4th. I have to say that out of all the places we have stayed in the past, this is by far the best. We have stay in over 7 places, PA, Maine, Vermont, Canada.

The house its everything you need and more. The bedroom are very comfortable, the living room enough space for everyone to seat and converse and during the day you get tons of light thru the sliding glass door. Kitchen, everything you need and if you're lucky as we were you get organic coffee and a chill cava. My kids 17, 14 and 11 and our very hyper dog love love love the outside yard . There's so much room for them to go crazy.... my dog loved the pond. The town its very pretty and everything its not too far away.. lake etc.... even if you have to drive the views are so pretty, miles of green flat land everywhere... This place its wonderful, the space etc. Doug its a plus, he was such a pleasure to deal with . We were out of propane gas and he literally came over with a new tank 3 minutes after I call him. I like visiting different place every year, but this is one place I will definitely visit again. So if you want a nice, clean, relaxing place with everything you can possible need, this is the place for you. Thank you Doug!!!!

Great house to enjoy the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

we make this trip to the Catskills to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary.

This house and the property was just perfect for the occasion.

we were five adults plus our red little poodle.

The house is modern and has all you need just bring food and drinks.

we enjoyed long walks with the dog and taking in all the views

of this beautiful area. we also enjoyed relaxing on the big deck, the property also has

a great fire pit and a nice pond with some tiny cute frogs and other little fish.

we also did some nice barbecues on the new gas grill on the deck.

Last but not least I want to thank the owners Doug and Robin they are great

people that go out of their way to make sure your stay in their house is as is smooth as it can be.
