About Margaret Vyff

I am a parent, designer and environmentalist who likes to get away to the mountains. This house is a wonderful place to go skiing with my son and friends. I later found the Catskills are a beautiful place to hike! I have a big dog who hikes with me, so I needed a place where she is welcome too. :)

Margaret Vyff purchased this house in 2005

Why Margaret Vyff chose Catskills

The house is a 20 minute drive to Belleayre, Hunter and Wyndham Mountains. It's a lovely summer retreat as well, being within a few miles of the Devils Path trail head, which hits seven of the tallest peaks of the Catskills. The fall colors surround the house in spectacular glory!

What makes this house unique

The house is warm. The beds are cozy comfortable and I love sipping my coffee watching the mountain mist in the morning, before the rest of the house wakes up.

Comfy cozy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Having 5 Adults in a house can be hard, but the house, while not large, is very comfortable and seems to have enough space for everyone. The beds and linens were really nice and clean. The property sits between neighbors, so while you're in the country you are not totally alone. If staying as a single, this gives comfort of having people around while still maintaining privacy. The house is off a main road, so it's easy to get to and from. I would rent this house again.

Lovely country home in convenient Catskills location

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice with a group of hiking friends and we will undoubtedly stay here again. The home is cozy (but not small) and has all of the things you need to cook, relax and sleep well. The place is very clean, beds are comfortable, the kitchen is user-friendly and the fireplace is an added bonus. The porch and deck are great for hanging out on in the warmer months or keeping your gear on all year round. Added bonus: pet friendly!

Overall impression was very good. I can recommend to others this place as a vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

My entire family stayed in Margaret Vyff's house for two days, 6 people overall. House was neat and had everything we can think of, even internet Wi-Fi we were able to get from neighbor house (with neighbors consent of course), despite my intention to keep kids off computer for at least two days. Little kids found a lot of toys and played with them, which brought a lot of delight. We had a chance to hike, parking a little bit further on Rout 42, even from the house location on the other side of the road there was an access to pristine woods. We also travelled in a neighborhood a bit, visited in particular Ukrainian Church, which was nice because I have Ukrainian origin. Of course views and air were magnificent. Thank you Margaret.

Viktor, Viktoriya and a family.

quaint and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time on our ski trip during record breaking cold temperatures in the catskills! The house is very cozy, just as described.Despite no wifi (well a little bit by the kitchen, courtesy of the neighbors) the kids managed to stay entertained with board games and a wii with lots of games. The entire house was very clean, the kitchen well stocked. We cooked most meals in. The beds were very comfortable as well. Margaret was very communicative and helpful. Don't follow GPS, follow Margaret's directions to get there.
