Welcome to the Arlington, a historic house rental in Palenville, New York. Originally built during the Civil War as a summer retreat, this 4-bedroom self-catering property offers the quiet, space, and charms of the country. Located in the first art colony of America on the banks of the Kaaterskill Creek, the Arlington is a hassle-free homebase for exploring the region or hitting the local hiking trails to The Kaaterskill Falls, North and South Lake.
The Arlington is located on Main Street in Palenville, New York. This recently renovated Civil War Inn has a weeping willow in the front yard and a 10-foot deep wrap around porch with large dining table and chairs. The expansive great room (30×30) includes a kitchen with full-size fridge, four-burner stove, microwave, and overhead ceiling fans. The bright, sunny living room (27×20) has wide planked wood floors, period brass fans, and a decorative fireplace.
Across the street from the Arlington is Circle W Market, a general store focused on local and organic foods that dates back to 1908. Palenville is also home to the Rip Van Winkle Country Club and a family-owned restaurant called the Fernwood.
The peaceful town of Palenville, New York was founded as the first Art Colony in America by Asher B. Durand. The historic Otis Railway, a funicular that carried people up to the Catskill Mountain House, is nearby. Kaaterskill Creek—an inspiration for many famous painters and paintings—runs through the backyard of the property. In season, a refreshing afternoon can be spent swimming in the cool, clean water of the stream.
I grew up at The Arlington, and have spent many years restoring it. I work in advertising in Manhattan and split my time between Palenville and the city.
Brian Goss purchased this house in 1970
The house is so big, 3000 square feet, that you can get lost in it. Large groups of people can find their own private quiet space, while coming together in the spacious kitchen/great room or living room with both featuring 11 foot ceilings. In the summer, swim in the Kaaterskill Creek behind the house with private swimming at The Fernwood.
Centrally located for day trips to all the surrounding towns. Go antiquing in Hudson. Shopping, dining and gallery hopping in Woodstock. Hits Equestrian Events in Saugerties. Ski Hunter or Windham Mountains. Hike from the house to The Kaaterskill Falls, and North and South Lakes.
We had a lovely stay at the Arlington with our group of 4 adults, 4 kids, and 2 dogs. The house was convenient to Hunter Mountain, Saugerties, and Kaaterskill Falls, surrounded by nature yet not too remote, located on a well-trafficked road near a small store, gas station, farmstand, and restaurants. Brian was a wonderful host, leaving us a bowl of locally-grown fresh fruit, taking us to meet the staff of the Fernwood Restaurant so that we could use the swimming hole there, and offering lots of great information of the area. It was clear that Brian has put a lot of time and care into restoring the house, and it was clean, comfortable, and filled with character, not to mention spacious enough for our large group. We greatly enjoyed our visit.
Thank you, Brian for a great vacation home. The facilities were clean, roomy and comfortable. The location was right near North Lake/South Lake, a great place for boating, trails, and picnicking. We also were privileged to a private swimming hole in the area. if we had any questions, Brian was there to help us out.
This house was more beautifui and more spectacular than words or picturs can ever describer. Yes, the house was more than clean and was mantained. The owner and his mother were extemely kind and made us feel at home. I have already started recommending this beautiful, historical home as a perfect location to my friends and family. Everyone was more than friendly, the retaraunts were phenominal and the zoo, waterhole, and horse back riding ect. was so fun. Good bbq-ing, and best of all what my family and i enjoyd the most was the quality time and family dinners!!!!!
House is located at the base of the Kaaterskill Wild Forest, on the banks of The Kaaterskill Creek. Hike to The Kaaterskill Falls, North and South lake from the house!
