About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

The cares of the world will totally disappear as you arrive and become part of a unique and tranquil surrounding that will revitalize your senses.

This magnificent property of 114 acres of trees, hills and meadows encircle the house which fronts a four and half-acre lake surrounded by landscaped gardens. There is also a one-acre pond with its own island. Streams and several beautiful waterfalls run throughout the property. Sunbathe, row a boat or fish during the day—start a campfire, stargaze or take a night stroll and listen to the frogs and crickets. You can hike the 114 acres or the adjoining 650-acre New York’s Forest Preserve.

The lake is suitable for swimming. The area around the dock has a sandy bottom allowing easy access to the water without having to wade through a mud bottom. There is a raft in the middle of the lake, which you can swim to or sunbathe on.

A rowboat and canoe are available for your use. Fishing is permitted. The lake contains largemouth and smallmouth bass, perch, catfish and crappies. The small 1-acre pond is home to our “pet” rainbow trout. We call them our “pets” as we feed them but do not fish in that one location. It's something that our guests have greatly enjoyed doing.

The log cabin home is approximately 200 feet from the lake. The log cabin has original knotty pine wood throughout. The kitchen and both bathrooms have been completely renovated. The kitchen has new cabinets, appliances and granite counter tops. The wall between the kitchen and living room was removed, creating a great room that is at once larger yet more involving. The upstairs bathroom has a new glass block window and tub. The tub area has been tiled and the vanity has a granite countertop. The downstairs bathroom features a new glass enclosed tiled shower, floor and refurnished walls.

The living room contains a stone fireplace for cool evenings and winter days. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs with an added daybed in the downstairs lounge area. The house can accommodate eight people. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The third has a day bed that, when opened, can sleep two comfortably. The downstairs lounge area can accommodate two comfortably as well.

Tennis, golf, biking and antique shopping begin within a five minute drive. Attractions include: Belleayre Mountain and Plattekill ski resorts, summer concerts, Roxbury Arts Center, and Hannah Golf Resort, to name a few. Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is a little over one hour away. Though the property feels completely isolated from the world, it is located just two miles from the Village of Margaretville which has a large supermarket, hospital, shops, banks, gas stations, veterinarians and restaurants. Many surrounding hamlets and villages offer additional eateries and quaint shopping experiences.

House amenities include wireless internet, cell phone service, free long distance in the continental USA and cable television. We have Apple TV, so you can access the inclusive HBO GO and Showtime Anytime. If you have a Netflix or iTunes account, you can download movies directly without having to go into town to rent a movie, although that is an option as well.

Beautiful Place!!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing stay filled with beautiful views, hiking and lake. Is very well kept and very clean. The place was just as described! Took my husband here for his birthday and he can't stop talking about. Very accomodating to our two labs which was wonderful. Tom and Kim are a pleasure and very kind! Had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us.. Will definitely come again!

Amazing property with perfectly equipped cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The property is so gorgeous with ponds and huge area to walk around! We just stayed over the weekend with friends (and baby), enjoyed the property so much. The cabin had everything and we cooked our meals every day and watched movies, played board games at night. Bathrooms are renovated and overall the cabin is very clean. The owner was there when we were staying and he was super helpful and friendly. I would love to come back in Summer to hang out at the pond!! Also a great spot to stay for skiing during winter. Their dog is so adorable and really appreciate them letting a dog stay as well!

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year at Tree Top. We love it here so much. Nature has such healing properties and we left renewed and refreshed.

It gets more beautiful each year.

Thank you, Tom for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

Simply........Thank you, Tom.

  • 5 of 5

Tom is an angel. His only goal in life is to make people happy. And he did just that for my family and friends. The place was lovely. And OMG......the view!! 114 acres, private lake stocked with fish, boats to enjoy the lake, a pier to fish or swim. A great amount of the 114 acres was well kept, well maintained, beautiful green grass. You can go hiking in the woods. The house had everything needed and very clean. My family and friends were planning a trip back before we even left!!!!!

Thank you lots, to you (Tom) and your family

The Planco family

And our friends

Peaceful, magical vacation :)

  • 5 of 5

Imagine visiting the nicest park you've ever been too with gardens, woods, shimmering ponds and huge green expanses of lawn...that's what you'll find here, only that park becomes your private yard for the duration of your stay...

My boyfriend and I, and my dog, Summer stayed here a few weeks ago and it was just the best vacation. The cabin itself is beautiful, homey and immaculate with a modern kitchen, a rustic fireplace and gorgeous woodwork throughout - even the ceilings! To top it off, this is absolutely the best stocked house we have ever stayed at, and we've vacationed at a number of beautiful homes over the years. Aside from buying our basic food at the local supermarket and bringing our personal items from home, everything we could possibly want was already there. The pantry and cabinets were filled with the spices and oils we needed to cook great dinners, and there were even dry goods like coffee and oatmeal available. I've always had a running joke about all the terrible vegetable peelers I find at vacation homes, but this house had one so much better than the good one I already had at home that I actually went out and bought one just like it for myself! There was a great selection of movies, books, CDs and cassette tapes to enjoy.

Another unique feature is the landscaping. The landscaper, Lenore is truly an artist and her flower gardens need to be seen to be believed. In addition to being breathtaking, they also attract all kinds of delicate butterflies, dragonflies and fuzzy moths that were thrilling to watch and photograph.

The owners Tom and Cindi, and their daughter Kim are absolutely lovely people who address any concerns or questions you might have right away. Their dog Bella was friendly and exuberant. Really our stay was just the right balance of solitude/privacy and having the nicest neighbors one could imagine.

Guests get to feed the pet trout every day! It was so peaceful walking down to the trout pond, sitting on a sun-warmed rock and lazily tossing fish pellets to the trout, who attacked them like hungry piranha...

Another special touch: There's a hidden statue of a dog called Fugly hidden in the woods and if a guest finds it they get to hide it somewhere else for the next guest. We finally found Fugly the last night and I have to admit I was as excited as a little kid.

The only downside is you have to go home eventually...

Absolutely magical vacation spot. I would totally recommend.
