Overview

About the property

Dogs With References Ok! • Stylish Bungalow • 2 Bedroom • 1.5 Bath • Sleeps 4

Nestled high on the hill looking out over Pepacton reservoir, you'll find our treetop bungalow set in 5 acres of woodland and wildflower gardens. Travel just 2.5 hours from the George Washington bridge and leave the city far behind. Reconnect with fresh air, tranquility, and nature. This is true wilderness.

The 1,400 square foot Rainbow Ranch has two bedrooms (one king, one queen) and 1.5 bathrooms providing a spacious getaway for 4. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to make a delicious meal out of the fresh organic produce and homemade delights you find at farm stands and farmer’s markets and there's a dishwasher to ease the clean up.

Walk through the dining room to the giant living room and warm yourself at the bluestone fire place, flanked by octagonal windows. Step through the picture window to the sweeping sundeck – nearly the size of the house again. Recline and enjoy your morning coffee listening to the birds and looking out over the lake with the Catskills reaching out beyond. ...and, if the coffee isn't cutting it, you can complete the wake-up with a dip under our outdoor shower.

If you can tear yourself away from the view, there are awesome hikes (everywhere!), swimming holes (20 mins), fly fishing on Beaverkill (30 min), fishing/kayaking on Pepacton Reservoir (5 mins), swimming at little pond (20 min), skiing at Belleayre (25 mins) and Plattekill (30 mins), Belleayre Music Festival (15 mins), legendary fall colors (everywhere!), antiques, auctions, and crafts (everywhere!).

Don't feel like roasting marshmallows around our campfire under countless stars surrounded by fireflies? Head to Andes (15 min), an upstate NYC outpost, and get big city comforts with a village vibe. Margaretville (great supermarket - 5 min), Bovina (15 min) Arkville (8 min), and Roxbury (20 min) also offer great dining options and mountain hospitality.

We’ll provide a full list of tips on activities, trails, and places to eat and we have a map room packed with leaflets and maps from local places, so you’ll get most out of your stay.

Great things we didn’t mention yet!

Campfire • volley ball • croquet • bocce • skittles • horseshoes • badminton • tree swing • outdoor shower • hammocks • sleds • telescope • fireplace • firewood • local phone • DSL wifi • 39' flatscreen • Dish with HBO • 100s of DVDs • ipod speakers • record player • internet radio • board games • Egyptian cotton sheets • down comforters • hair dryer • luggage racks • ironing board • fan • portable AC • washer/dryer • dishwasher • microwave • toaster • coffee grinder/maker • cocktail skaker • barbeque

Beautiful, peaceful get away!

  • 4 of 5

Overall I thought this property was really great. The grounds were gorgeous and I spent a great deal of time outside with our dog. The inside was nice and had everything we needed. I liked that Margaretville (a very cute small town) was close enough so we could run and get food. My only complaint is one night we saw a mouse in the living room, and my husband saw a small snake (black racer) in the kitchen going underneath the fridge. I understand that being in the woods, it would be hard to avoid bugs getting in the house, but I'm a little less forgiving of snakes. Additionally, we were a little disappointed that there were cobwebs all over even though people that stay there pay a $120 cleaning fee.

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

I'm so embarrassed that I forgot to review this lovely home! My husband, daughter and I came up for my husband's birthday weekend, and it was fantastic. Everything we expected and more, and we were there in early December. Cozy place, great linens and comforter, and fun exploring in the area.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog had an amazing time and really relaxed! We enjoyed the fireplace and the view was our favorite part! The pictures online do not do it justice! You are close enough to town if you need anything but far enough away that you feel like you are on your own private oasis.

Complete Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay for relaxing. We found ourselves only leaving to go to the grocery store which is only 10 minutes away. The outside of the house has a nice area with a firepit where the kids and dog could run around and play in the snow. Beautiful deck with a BBQ that over looks the reservoir with amazing views. We spent the days outside and the nights inside cooking and sitting around the nice cozy fireplace. House has everything you need for a nice peaceful get away. The only issue with the house is there was noticable mice activity and the house could have been a little cleaner. Would definitely recommend this place and look forward to staying again. Owners were very informative and nice to deal with.

lovely, serene setting - perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Rolla and Heather! Such a wonderful retreat in winter and the house was the perfect size and well equipped and we wanted for nothing! Love the picture windows and the cozy fireplace and thank you for the Netflix and amazing collection of DVD's. The map room was brilliant - figured out where we were and picked a trail about 10 minutes away for a day hike. Would reccomend to anyone seeking a little getaway for rest and relaxation.

Peaceful Winter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, snowy weekend at Rolla and Heather's house. The home is spacious and clean, well appointed, and quiet. The only issue we had was a leaky sink drain in the main bathroom which required us to brush teeth and wash hands in the bathtub or kitchen sink. I emailed Heather as soon as we noticed it and she assured us that their handyman would address it upon our departure. We would definitely stay again, and hope to do so during other seasons in order to take advantage of the outdoor amenities and the gorgeous view of the Pepacton Reservoir!
