Situated at the end of a private road this beautiful property is like heaven with beautiful streams running around the house. If you feel the need to get away from it all, this place is for you. Located on the top of a hill, this rental is tucked privately away with surrounding forest preserve. You feel as though you are standing right at the top of a mountain, but in reality you are at the foot of South Mountain. Facing the front you have a beautiful view of Hanover mountain, and at the back there is 300 acres of forest preserved by "Catskill State Forest Preserve" in the NYC Ashokan Reservoir area.
There is an attached log cabin built in the early 1900's that is not part of the rental as of now as we are fixing it up. Nobody will be staying in this log cabin during your stay or anywhere on the property near you. All the pictures are of the new addition that contain 1 bedroom with king size bed and two bathrooms (one off master bedroom). The master bedroom is located upstairs. We have a crib and changing area if you have a baby. The rental is designed for two people's romantic weekend, but if you have one child they can sleep on the couch though it does not open up. There is a wood stove to cozy up to in the winter, but there is also central heating throughout the house.
The beautiful Bushkill creek surrounds the area, and the stunning Peekamoose Mountain Blue Hole is a 15 minute gorgeous scenic drive where you can swim and cool off. There is also a pool in the town of Olive's Lester S. Davis Park which is 5 minutes drive, and also includes a basketball court, pavilion, Baseball Field, children’s playground and horseshoe pits. There is world class fly-fishing at Esopus Creek, and so many beautiful hiking trails nearby. The quaint town of Woodstock is a 25 minute away, Phoenicia is 15 minutes away, and High Falls and Stone Ridge is 25 minutes away. Bellayre and Hunter are two ski areas just 30 minutes up Route 28 through some of the most stunning landscapes and mountains. You are 10 minutes to groceries, a farm stand, bakery, liquor store and cafes serving breakfast & lunch. Great restaurants are just 5-20 minutes away!
