About the property

Brand New 2 Bedroom House One Mile From The Hamlet Of Phoenicia

Leave your cares behind and enjoy the beautiful Catskill mountains as you relax in your “Stream side Sanctuary,” a newly renovated 2 bedroom house just outside of Phoenicia, located on the lovely Stony Clove Stream.

Enjoy your privacy as you sit on the front porch; use the gas grill and ample picnic table for a cook-out in the back yard; relax and read in your zero gravity chair in a sunny or shady spot; or sit by the stream and watch the water peacefully flowing and perhaps see the bald eagle, heron, or ducks that regularly pay a visit. Come back after dark and enjoy the large seasonal propane fire pit and comfortable Adirondack chairs.The view is wonderful year round, with the autumn colors being especially spectacular.

The newly renovated house has a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining room that looks out at trees and flowers from a bow window, living room with gas fireplace and large screen TV, modern bathroom, two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, one with a TV, air conditioning and heat throughout making it a cozy, comfortable retreat year round! The house has cable TV and wifi. A car is not necessary as the house is located just short of a mile form the bus station in Phoenicia. You can walk to town, eat in one of several restaurants, visit the quaint shops, go fly fishing, or tube the Esopus. If you’re feeling energetic, a walk of a little over a mile will bring you to the Tanbark Trail and/or the trail up Tremper Mountain, both very popular spots, or walk about 2 miles to the Phoenicia Diner for a hearty breakfast or lunch. If you do come by car, there are many sites and activities just a short drive away: Lakes, hiking trails, ski centers (Hunter is 12 miles away, Belleayre-15 & Windham-22.6) concerts, even the world’s largest kaleidoscope! Come and enjoy “your vacation home” without any of the work or responsibility!

My husband and I have a home on the property. If we are not traveling, we like to greet our guests, give a quick tour of the house, and answer any questions. Whether we are home or away we can always be reached but, we give our guests as much privacy as possible so that they can comfortably enjoy all of the property.

About Veronica Rowe

I grew up in New York City but was always drawn to nature. After college I moved to Ulster County and have lived in Phoenicia for thirty years. I never tire of of the beauty of this area that I am blessed to live in.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because of the beautiful setting. There is a large open yard with about 150' of stream frontage. The setting is peaceful and lovely but within one mile of town. It is conveniently located to restaurants, shops, theaters, tubing, fly fishing, kayaking, swimming & skiing. There is a lovely stream side stone patio with a large propane fire pit that is beautiful!

Herons glide and the brook babbles ...

  • 5 of 5

A sweet little cottage right next to the river. We spent every moment we were there in the Adirondack Chairs by the river and the fire pit. Herons, kingfishers and hummingbirds. Great little cottage for our family of 3. Super clean! Turned on the fire a couple of times. Lots of Trail guides provided, right next to Phonecia town center, 15 minutes to Woodstock. Maybe 5 minutes to the Phonecian Diner. The view is not to be beat and we took lots of photos.

SANCTUARY INDEED

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, wonderful hosts ... Truly a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. We have rented many homes in the area and this one is exactly as described and so much more. Owners take pride in providing a clean, well- decorated and comfortable home. The grounds are meticulously kept, stream is so peaceful and the view of the mountain is absolutely beautiful. We hope to have the opportunity to return in the future.

Thank you Jon and Veronica ... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and getting to know you both :) Take care.

Tranquility at its finest

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about our stay at this beautiful home by the river. The views were stunning, the kitchen well appointed, the bedrooms comfortable, the living room cozy, and the location convenient to both Phoenecia and Woodstock. Our days and nights were were surrounded by the soothing sounds of the river, the beauty of the landscape, and the warmth of the fire. Like I said, I really can't say enough good things. Veronica was extremely accommodating and made us feel right at home, she also was kind enough to make some great recommendations for local spots to try (do yourself a favor and check out bread alone in woodstock, then stop by the tea shop next door).

Bottom line: If you are looking for a comfortable and extremely relaxing place to call home while you explore the catskills, you really can't get much better than this!

Sanctuary in the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

Was the perfect weekend getaway for our family! Veronica was prompt in her communication with me and was available when we arrived. The place is clean & super convenient but, the best part is the patio by the creek. We loved morning and evenings out there!
