Snow-covered from now through February, come and snuggle up and read, drink hot chocolate or cook a winter feast. Bring your college friends and create your own Big Chill.

Quiet and peaceful retreat
My family enjoyed our time in this lovely country getaway. We found it clean and comfy ... Our only real regret is that it rained quite a bit that weekend, but we still managed to enjoy some of the local hikes and fall foliage. Check-in and out was a breeze, and the owners responded to all inquiries in a timely fashion.
Loved staying in this lovely house.
Adults and kids alike enjoyed the stay in this lovely old house and wished we could have stayed a bit longer. Game night around the big dining room table was a hit and preparing breakfast in the roomy kitchen a joy. Personally loved details, such as Russel Wright dishes and Le Creuset pots - only things that we could't seem to find in the kitchen was a decent knife. Sunday morning on the front porch was also a treat and we liked the scenic drive to see alpacas at Buckbrook Farm and visiting Calicoon.
We were so touched by your review Gabriele! Thank you! Please come again!
Great place in the country!
Really great place. Loved it
Perfect slice of Paradise
The owner was so easy to work with and the house was so cute! It had everything we needed and wanted! Highly recommend!
Thanks Kristy! We'd love to have you back!
Marcus was so accommodating to us!
Off the beaten path...
We chose to stay here because I wanted someplace quiet to write that also offered fun things for the kids.
The house has a lot of character and the scenery is beautiful. My family was very comfortable in the home. I saw someone complained about counter space but I guess we are used to that since we have an old home too! That wasn’t an issue. We ate some meals in and traveled to Callicoon to eat a few times. We really liked the town of Callicoon.
The pool was fantastic. Our older kids were in and out all day. There was a pool guy who came out and cleaned it while we were there.
It’s mentioned that the home doesn’t have AC. We were there at the end of July/early August and this was not an issue. I’m picky and always have my AC on at home but it’s much cooler here. It was nice to have the windows open and enjoy those cool evenings.
While I worked, my husband took the kids to Bethel Woods and said that was wonderful. There is a museum there that they recommend. If you are staying over the summer, there is a farm stand a couple miles up the road with great fresh veggies.
I was able to get some Verizon service while at the home. I just had to be in certain spots.
We had the electricity go out while we were there and it required an elelectrician. The owner quickly responded and had someone out to fix it immediately.
My kids were sad when it came time to head home. We hope to return next summer and maybe stay a little longer. This is where you want to go to get away from it all.
This review made me so happy, Kelly. This is exactly how we use the house -- down to the writing! Come back and enjoy whenever you and the family want.
Callicoon (http://visitcallicoon.com/), voted the Best Small Town in America and featured in The New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/30/t-magazine/travel/sullivan-county-narrowsburg-livingston-manor-callicoon-guide.html) is a 15 to 20 minute drive away. The Times also recently profiled Hancock, the town 15 minutes the other way from our house. (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/30/fashion/uncle-brother-catskills-gavin-brown.html) And the Woodstock experience comes to life at the Museum at Bethel Woods, on the site of Yasgur's Farm. It is amazing and moving. (http://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/the-museum/engage-with-history) (http://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/the-museum/preservingwoodstock). If coming from New York City, you should check it out on the way out of Monticello and toward our slice of heaven seven minutes from the Delaware River.
