About Cathy Stefans

Skiier at Hunter & Windham since I was 4yrs old. Settled up here as an adult because I wanted to live where I had the most fun, year-round!

Cathy Stefans purchased this house in 2008

Why Cathy Stefans chose Prattsville

WOW, when I looked in the window, I called my realtor with an offer... I couldn't resist THIS house! Originally, built in the 1860's, these posts & beams were carried up a barge up the Hudson River, and transported by stage coach to build this beautiful structure. Renovated in the year 2005. Still borders state land. We love living in the mountains, the countryside, with water and beautiful views surrounding us wherever we go around here!

What makes this house unique

Close to so many amazing things to do, and places to go! Except Walmart, thankfully. If you want Walmart, go to Kingston. If you want to have fun, relax, re-connect with nature, re-connect with your family & friends; the you will love it here, too! We have most of everything you would need; grocery store, florist, gas stations, restaurants; but we have SO MUCH more than your average suburbs, or city-life. Slow down a bit here when you're ready to relax, but rev it up on the vertical challenging hikes. The best of both worlds. BTW - it's a motorcycle friendly area. Enjoy!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed Cathy's mountain top house past wknd. And it couldn't be any better! We had 3 little children and there were tons of toys that they could play all day and night long! Adults could peacefully enjoy our weekend downstairs as well. House was clean and there were everything you would need if you forgot to bring from home. It was true home away from home! Swimming at the Pratt Rock was so beautiful and it was only few minutes from the house. It was amazing. Thanks Cathy!

Me and my family stayed for a weekend & I must say, it was a great getaway for us. The house is well maintained and very clean. The property owner Cathy, is such a sweet heart. She was extremely friendly and answered all of our questions. She also had a lot of tour guides and adventurous activity maps for us. Very quiet neighborhood and everything is close by. We will definitely stay again next year!
