|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
A charming home nestled at the bottom of a valley between two mountains next to a river. Awaken to the sight of mountains and trees outside. Enjoy breakfast while gazing at the river from the sunroom. Then go play in the water with the kids and your dog. The bald eagles have a nest nearby and often fly close to the house to catch fish in the river.
Fall is the most picturesque time to be in the Catskills. Go for a hike in the forest and enjoy the colors. It's foliage season and the colors of the leaves are breathtaking. Rivers and ponds and waterfalls all around. Check out some antique sales or try fly-fishing.
At night come home to a clean, comfortable house and cook up a big family dinner and for dessert roast marshmallows on the fire pit. You can see all the stars on a clear night with the telescope. Or hang out in the living room and play a board game or watch a movie with the projector. There are tons of books and movies and games and puzzles in the house.
Sundown village is in a remote, undiscovered part of the Catskills. This is the place to go if you want to get away from it all. You can walk a few minutes from the house to the center of the village which has a one room church and a bait shop. From there you can walk in various directions on some quiet roads with amazing views.
There are pristine forests all around with hiking trails that lead you up the mountains to breathtaking vistas and vintage fire towers.
With a little bit of driving you can find great restaurants, farms, yoga ashrams, galleries, etc. Mongaup pond and Minnewaska park are within reach and so is Frost Valley YMCA which has activities for both kids and adults.

My house has been a wonderful environment for many families with babies (high chair available) however there are no special safety mechanisms.
The AC is in one of the bedrooms upstairs during summertime. It can cool the second room also if you leave the doors open. The downstairs room is naturally cool.
6 guests maximum
No smoking in the house
No dogs on the furniture
I live in the city and my weekends are usually spent at the house in the Catskills. I enjoy taking care of my house and traveling and playing sports.
Allen Nehorayoff purchased this house in 2012
When I met this house, it was love at first sight.
your own river!
We were looking for an out-of-the-way house on water, surrounded by mountains, and we found it, on the babbling Neversink River, across from a mountain that rises sharply to the sky from a gentle slope. Everything was as described by the owner, if not better. When a snow or ice storm kept us inside, all was good: during daylight, we were lured to the sunroom/dining room to watch for wildlife (rewarded with pheasant, fox, and eagles); at night, to the living room and a cozy fire (with a perfect table for board games and the projection system for movies). There are wonderful roads to explore, frozen waterfalls to see, and deer galore. If you are not lucky enough to see eagles glide onto tree limbs mere feet from the sunroom, there is an eagle lookout down the road where we saw five of these amazing birds. When visiting the small town of Roscoe, we enjoyed the shops, its sense of history, and lunch at Raimondo’s Italian Restaurant. Secluded Getaway by the River is a property well taken care of, the house is clean, the beds very comfortable. The neighbor/caretaker appeared almost magically when needed (during a rain that turned to ice with little warning, and during a later snow storm). Allen, the owner, was very helpful, from pre-booking on, and when responding to our inquiries gave us very specific, helpful answers. Our Christmas in the Catskills was most enjoyable!
The house worked really well for our family because of the cozy living room with the fireplace, and the big dining room. We really enjoyed making fires in both the living room fireplace and the outdoor fire ring. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen had everything needed, and the owner kept the kitchen stocked with staples. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and also a child-size bed. The owner went above and beyond by driving 3 hours up to the house to replace the DVS/VHS movie projector. We had trouble getting the previous one working, but the owner did get it working. Nevertheless, he replaced it. We watched movies he kept at the house at night after a long day hiking. There were plenty of towels, blankets, and books in the house. The stream was very close to the house, and the area is really beautiful. We played the bocci and bad mitten provided. We all had a relaxing time and slept well because of the quiet location at the end of the small street.
We had a wonderful vacation at Allen"s Catskill house. The house was exactly as described and was clean and well equipped. Allen provided clear instructions for using the house and was easy to communicate with. The setting was lovely and we were just happy to be there, enjoying the scenery and going to local hiking areas. this was exactly the rural retreat I was looking for.
My family and I spent a whole month at Allen's house last summer and it was a fantastic experience. My two little ones(3&5) loved being in the country and the property was amazing for them to run around, dip their toes in the water, just be outdoors! The house itself was sooo good. I slept better there than I do at my own house. It's not what you think of when you think country cottage...it's a real house, clean, big and extremely comfy. My husband and I loved watching movies on the big screen at night. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook but mostly we used the grill! The area is great for hiking swimming kayaking everything! Though the main stores are about 20 minutes the drive there is so pretty!
Allen was a great host. He checked in to see if we needed anything but was never intrusive and always got back to me right away if any questions.
I really can't say anything negative about this rental and I never write reviews but this one deserves it!
We can't wait to go back!
The title doesn't lie: a secluded getaway by the river. It's peaceful, beautiful and calming. I stayed there together with my family, who were visiting from abroad and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The house is well-maintained and the neighbors are very helpful and friendly. Allen is an engaged host and went out of his way to make sure that we were well taken care of. I'd recommend this particularly for the peace-and-quiet-seekers, but there's also tons of great nature trails right around the corner in the Catskills. Would definitely like to stay here again sometime!
I stayed at the Secluded Getaway by the River with my family. Having grown up in the area, it was joy to stay at this house, near the very beautiful Peekamoose area. The house was very clean, beds were comfortable, all amenities were at our disposal. Allen, the owner, checked in with us prior to the trip to ensure we had all the information we needed. I also appreciated him checking in with us after our stay to obtain feedback on our level of satisfaction. We look forward to another stay in the future!
