My property manager will greet you, get you settled, and answer any questions you may have. Though my private residence is next door, it is off limits to renters and is usually not occupied when guests are enjoying their stay. We also have a campsite on our property, located approximately a half a mile around the lake from the barn & boathouse, which we rent out on the Tentrr website. Please note that this campsite may be occupied during your stay. We don't expect much interaction between the two sites, but we do asks that our guests respect each other's time and privacy so that everyone may enjoy their stay.


From the Hudson Valley painters to the hills of Rip Van Winkle, from the old comedy acts of the 50's to the fly fishing camps and wineries of today, The Catskills is a beautiful and historic landscape. Dotted with antique shops and organic ice cream stops, apple farms, music venues, professional theatres, and fisheries, our neighborhood has something for everyone!


From New York city you can take a train to Middletown New York, and then a 25 minute cab ride to our home. Or, catch the bus at Port Authority which lets you off in Wurtsboro - just a 15 minute cab ride away. Schedules are New Jersey transit for the train, and Short Line for the bus.


This property is unlike any other just 90 minutes from New York city. It is perfect for the executive who wants to enjoy a country home, but doesn't want to own one... Perfect for the artist who wants to spend a week (or a month) writing the next great novel. Perfect for a warm family reunion, or for the couple who wants to lie in a hammock by the stream and read for hours. Our lake is full of sunfish, largemouth bass, and crappies. Beaver, otters, eagles, Canadian geese, bear, quail, skunk, deer, swan, and great blue heron all make their homes in this unique environment. Occasionally we are visited by the loon, and that is a sound to remember forever.


For the safety of our guests, there are exterior security cameras located around the property.

NO PETS. Hypoallergenic dogs will be considered for additional fee of $75. Per night. They may NOT sleep in bedrooms or on bed covers.

For privacy reasons the pin on map is located approximately 5 mins down the road.

Holiday rates are higher. Please inquire with Owner for Holiday, Weekly, Monthly, and Seasonal rates.

A Waiver of Liability must be signed prior to arriving. Photo ID must be provided, as well.

Primary renter must at least 25.

No HUNTING allowed.

Jet ski NOT available to rent.

Smoking in the house automatically forfeits security deposit.

Propane for gas grill is provided. Firewood is provided.

WEDDINGS/EVENTS - PLEASE NOTE: I will consider events on property, it is lovely for family reunions and weddings in the amphitheater. However, please note that there will be an additional event fee. Weddings start at $5,000 for the venue, depending on the number of guests you wish to have, and proper insurance is required. Only serious inquiries, please.

Please keep in mind the owner is not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that occurs while on the premises. We are not responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables of the guest.

About Verna West

Hi, I'm Verna...and while I'm not pictured, my wonderful team helps me manage this beautiful property when I'm traveling.

I'm a writer, artist and a potter & my work brings me between fabulous New York City, the New York countryside, and California. I fell in love with our National Parks as a young girl, and enjoy hiking and camping with my kids from Yosemite to Yellowstone. On a smaller scale however... :) spending quality time in my country home with my family is just fine!

This is the first time I am sharing my lakeside hOMe with my family, (it is so lovely in all seasons) so you won't see any reviews...yet! Candace helps me with the rentals and communication when I am on the road. I hope you choose hOHMe to kick back and enjoy a break in the country!

The property was beautiful - nice and secluded with a whole lake to yourself! So many great amenities made it easy for us to relax and enjoy ourselves. The people overseeing the property were very helpful as well and took care of logistics!
