Overview

About the property

Brand New 2 Bedroom House One Mile From The Hamlet Of Phoenicia

Leave your cares behind and enjoy the beautiful Catskill mountains as you relax in your “Stream side Sanctuary,” a newly renovated 2 bedroom house just outside of Phoenicia, located on the lovely Stony Clove Stream.

Enjoy your privacy as you sit on the front porch; use the gas grill and ample picnic table for a cook-out in the back yard; relax and read in your zero gravity chair in a sunny or shady spot; or sit by the stream and watch the water peacefully flowing and perhaps see the bald eagle, heron, or ducks that regularly pay a visit. Come back after dark and enjoy the large seasonal propane fire pit and comfortable Adirondack chairs.The view is wonderful year round, with the autumn colors being especially spectacular.

The newly renovated house has a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining room that looks out at trees and flowers from a bow window, living room with gas fireplace and large screen TV, modern bathroom, two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, one with a TV, air conditioning and heat throughout making it a cozy, comfortable retreat year round! The house has cable TV and wifi. A car is not necessary as the house is located just short of a mile form the bus station in Phoenicia. You can walk to town, eat in one of several restaurants, visit the quaint shops, go fly fishing, or tube the Esopus. If you’re feeling energetic, a walk of a little over a mile will bring you to the Tanbark Trail and/or the trail up Tremper Mountain, both very popular spots, or walk about 2 miles to the Phoenicia Diner for a hearty breakfast or lunch. If you do come by car, there are many sites and activities just a short drive away: Lakes, hiking trails, ski centers (Hunter is 12 miles away, Belleayre-15 & Windham-22.6) concerts, even the world’s largest kaleidoscope! Come and enjoy “your vacation home” without any of the work or responsibility!

My husband and I have a home on the property. If we are not traveling, we like to greet our guests, give a quick tour of the house, and answer any questions. Whether we are home or away we can always be reached but, we give our guests as much privacy as possible so that they can comfortably enjoy all of the property.

About Veronica Rowe

I grew up in New York City but was always drawn to nature. After college I moved to Ulster County and have lived in Phoenicia for thirty years. I never tire of of the beauty of this area that I am blessed to live in.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because of the beautiful setting. There is a large open yard with about 150' of stream frontage. The setting is peaceful and lovely but within one mile of town. It is conveniently located to restaurants, shops, theaters, tubing, fly fishing, kayaking, swimming & skiing. There is a lovely stream side stone patio with a large propane fire pit that is beautiful!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The Hosts were really nice and helpful. The property is amazing (especially the backyard). The house itself is well stocked and the pictures describe it perfectly. You are close to town, a swimming hole and a relatively short drive to hiking spots. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time in Phonecia. Fire pit, s’mores, hiking, lake swimming, boating, picnics, gondola rides, bats and farms. My 3 and 5 year had a blast. The house was comfortable and clean and Veronica was friendly and welcoming. There is everything you need in the house including games for the kids. Nice restaurants in the area. We are already thinking about a return trip next year.

Perfect getaway

We stayed here for 3 days here and we absolutely loved it. Everything is there for you. Very clean property, warm welcome from the owner, and yes, that fireplace is awesome.

I would visit there again.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just perfect. Veronica and her husband were so unbelievably nice and helpful. It was a perfect weekend to sit by the river with the fire going and cook out with friends. Now I only want to stay at this house when I come to Phoenicia because it's so great!

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay for a quick getaway in the catskills. The house was updated, clean, and the common areas were very roomy considering the overall size of the home. We planned our trip very last minute and the owners were very accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.
