This lovely recently-renovated Catskill Mountain cottage has style, comfort and is located in an idyllic setting.
With 2 bedrooms, 1 ½ baths and an open floor plan this home has been meticulously renovated with great thought and attention to detail. The space has been designed for easy entertaining both inside and out. The open living plan incorporates the kitchen, living/dining area and a comfortable sunroom.
The house is filled with light, taking in the surrounding mountain views from most vantage points. The hardwood floors, exposed beams and use of barn wood give the living area warmth and whimsy.
Equidistant to Margaretville and Roxbury, the cottage is close to country and convenience. Minutes to ski centers, golfing, hiking, boating, fishing, restaurants and all that is special about the Catskills.
We had a wonderful weeklong stay at this home! Everyone has already mentioned the inside style and size so I'll add some insight to the location. The home sits up on a hill overlooking a stream. We saw 2 deer close to the home in the morning as well as later in the day! Also seen during the week in the area...blue heron, fox, bald eagle, woodchucks, lots of wild turkeys, bunnies, pheasants and geese flying south. We visited many towns. Be aware that this areas Antique Stores are usually only open Thursday or Friday-Sun. On a rainy day we drove to Montecello to the casino and also visited Bethel and the Site of Woodstock where there is a very interesting museum. I could just feel the spirit of that time as we looked over the scenic hills! On the nice days we hiked the Catskills Scenic Rail trail and checked out the Windham Path on the day our muscles were sore. This was the perfect vacation! Thanks again Jerry!
We loved the property and found it peaceful and relaxing. It is the nicest vacation rental we have stayed in. My only regret was we didn't have more time to enjoy it This is the kind of place where you want to spend time enjoying the deck and outside areas as well as inside. Some places you go just to sleep while traveling but this is comfortable enough to want to spend a lot of time at the property. So bring a good book and enjoy the view from the deck.
What a find! This cottage has it all! My husband and I spent three glorious days here in late September 2016. We cannot wait to return.
The drive to Halcottsville from NYC is through some of the most lovely scenery the Catskills offers. The beauty of the Halcottville area is hypnotic, and the moment you arrive at the cottage, you're transported to a gentler, simpler, no-stress reality.
The cottage itself is the definition of "charming." Perched on a hill, well off the quiet country road, it has an amazing view of the bucolic countryside. Just down the road (less than a mile), there are hiking trails and Lake Wawaka where you can rent kayaks and have a very relaxing time paddling the lake while enjoying the quiet, the scenery, and a watching a nice variety of birds.
The cottage is perfect. The finishes are very high-end, and it's equipped with everything you need to settle into immediate relaxation. The kitchen is modern and well appointed. It has everything necessary to cook meals at home. The floor-plan is open with a large living/dining area. The screened in porch is a wonderful place to read, play games, enjoy the sounds of nature, or enjoy a meal. The living room is perfect for watching a movie on the large flat panel TV. The cottage has a nice selection of board games and DVD's available for the guests. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable.
All this and great owners too. Ray and Jerry were great with all communication and were easily reached and quickly responsive. Highly recommended!
Although we had a little hiccup with the keyless entry system (made worse by the fact that there is no cell service anywhere near the house), I can say that we had a great stay. The house is beautiful and secluded. A quick 15 minute drive to a grocery store will ensure you never have to go far for the essentials. Would recommend for anyone just looking for a retreat from the hustle and bustle that is life.
This was the second summer in a row my kids and I made the trip to this serene, yet hip cottage in Halcottsville and we left relaxed as always. It's the perfect oasis away from home - quiet, accessible and very close to anything you need, while also being far away enough to feel secluded. The place was in perfect shape again and there was nothing we were missing. A couple reminders - bring your own shampoo and soap, this isn't a hotel. You are close to a very good supermarket in Margaretville, as well as a bunch of little shops. Do the research and enjoy what is truly a home away from home for us.
