About Alexis Quy

Raising our daughter in Brooklyn is a wonderful experience, but Russell and I both hail from the country! He is from Kansas with its wide open prairies and rolling hills and I grew up nearby in Orange County, NY. We wanted our daughter to be able to run in the wet grass in bare feet, climb trees, pick wild blueberries, watch butterflies and hummingbirds and breathe fresh mountain air like we did as kids. She really has the best of both worlds-lucky girl! She likes to visit Flying Change Farm on weekends where she is learning to ride horses and we swim, hike and hunt for treasures. Of course, hunkering down with a fire and a good book or movie is also a good thing and this home allows for some cozy, restful times.

Alexis Quy purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Alexis Quy chose Catskills

We found the perfect place in a little town called Olivebridge in the Catskills. The Hudson Valley has so much to offer and every season has its perks. From fabulous and plentiful snow for skiing, tubing, snowboarding to the warm and sunny days of Summer, I couldn't pick a favorite season here if I tried. They are all wonderful!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Have you ever seen a frog the size of your thumbnail? Eaten a berry pie fresh out of the oven or seen a double rainbow over a mountain? It can all happen here in Olive. It's a wonderfully quiet place that allows you to take notice of these special moments. The sights, sounds and smells of the Catskills are good for the soul!

Modern and Beautiful House in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 2 children) stayed here for a weekend retreat from the City. We had a great time! The house is beautiful, clean, modern and comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked. We spent a lot of time relaxing around the fireplace and really enjoyed the space. Alexis, the home owner, provided us with detailed instructions and information prior to our arrival and was easily reachable throughout the weekend whenever we had questions. It was especially cold when we were there and we really appreciated Alexis making sure we had plenty of firewood and even arranging for an extra space heater to warm the house. The house is in a perfect location - within miles of the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir and proximity to awesome Phoenicia, Woodstock and surrounding towns. We would love to come back, including in the summer to enjoy the pool! Thanks again to the homeowners!

Great Autumn Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here in the Catskills! This property is as advertised - very spacious, clean, and well-equipped. Kitchen is very large, we loved the fireplace, and our (almost 4-year-old) daughter loved it here, as there are many toys and games for the kids to enjoy. Aside from a little trip to the Ashokan reservoir, which is 5 minutes away, we mostly stayed on the property, just to get some R&R, and the property was perfect for it. Alexis was very helpful and very easy to reach prior to our visit, and even left us some local soaps and salsas to enjoy. We hope to come back again soon - highly recommend!
