About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Centrally-located on a quiet country road, Brookside Farmhouse is within a 10-20 minute drive of Callicoon, Callicoon Center, Jeffersonville, Livingston Manor, North Branch, Roscoe, Youngsville, and more. Bethel Woods is just 30 minutes away. Skiing, tubing and ice skating are available at the Villa Roma, just 10 minutes away, and Plattekill, Belleayre and Elk Mountain (PA) are all within driving distance.

Featuring three bedrooms (one queen, two full beds), two full bathrooms, two sitting areas, an eat-in kitchen and a separate dining room, this fully updated house will comfortably accommodate a group of up to 6.

The main living room is right off the kitchen, and there is a separate sitting area next to the dining room. There is also a sofa downstairs that converts to a full size bed.

Depending on the weather, you can relax to the sound of the brook from the woods below, watch it snow from the covered front porch, or enjoy the warmth of the sun on the spacious front deck. There is also a spring-fed pond.

Cell phone coverage is excellent at the house - phones from most carriers work. Plus, as of March 2013, Brookside Farmhouse also offers Wi-Fi via a Verizon Jetpack.

Hunters Are Welcome: Hunters are welcome to stay in this comfortable, spacious home. While hunting is not allowed on the property or any of the adjacent land, state land is just a few minutes away. One of the closest parcels is Crystal Lake Wild Forest, 497 acres in the Town of Fremont with a 32 acre man-made lake.

Spend the Holidays Here: Brookside Farmhouse is a great place to spend the holidays. The dining room table will seat up to 8 comfortably and there are other locations in the house where you can sit and eat, as well as two sitting areas to relax after a big meal. One is just off the dining room.

About Our First Review: Brookside Farmhouse first became available as a vacation rental in the fall of 2011. Our first review came from a really lovely couple in Brooklyn that values their privacy. They gave us permission to post some of their comments and we did that as an owner submitted review, but we neglected to credit M&M from Brooklyn. We hope future guests will enjoy their time here just as much, and post their comments too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a relaxing weekend, we didn't want to leave. Our overall experience of this house was an 8 out of 10, and the description and photos were right on. We would stay at Brookside Farmhouse again and we would recommend it to friends.

Peaceful and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two daughters wanted a place where we could meet my sister and her husband to spend Thanksgiving together. We live in the Boston area and she lives in D.C., so the location was just about right in the middle. The farmhouse was perfect---the kitchen was well-equipped, and the owner thoughtfully left a blender and mixer in case we needed it (we used the mixer to whip cream for our pumpkin pie.) Ann was accommodating, the house was clean and cozy (the wood stove in the kitchen kept us warm!), and the property is lovely. My daughters built two snowmen by the little pond, and we enjoyed the views, especially from the upstairs bedroom. All in all, this was the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday!

Owner's Response: So glad your girls got to enjoy the snow and that the new mixer came in handy, Jennifer! Thank you for choosing to spend your Thanksgiving here, and for sharing your experience.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean cozy and spacious. We were 5 adults and two 5 year olds. Everything we needed was in the house. Beautiful property.

Ann was a wonderful host and it was a pleasure to actually meet her in town at her flower shop.

Highly recommend this property :)

Charming,clean and comfortable farmhouse with million dollar views from porch, deck and windows.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to spend a Friends' Fall Weekend. The farmhouse was clean ,comfortable and spacious. The views from the house and deck were spectacular. If the weather had been a bit more cooperative, we probably

would have spent the majority of our weekend on the deck off of the kitchen overlooking the property. it was so beautiful! Ann, the owner, could not have been nicer. She provided us with lots of useful information on the area as well as responding quickly to the trivial questions we had (i.e. How to set the thermostat, where to put garbage,etc). Overall, it was a great place and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a picturesque spot to get away and unwind.

Beautiful house and views, perfect for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house with an awesome backyard and gorgeous views. The house is clean, well kept and well stocked with everything you may need. Ann is really sweet and she makes sure her guests have all the amenities.The beautiful fall colors all around and the mini pond in the backyard were a sight to see. We had a wonderful weekend and we will surely be back when we get a chance!

Lovely, clean, well appointed house.

  • 5 of 5

Ann was lovely, as was her house. She really cares about her guests and clearly puts thoughts into all their needs. We found the house clean, full of everything we could possibly want and decorated with love. We will return if we find ourselves in the area again.

Perfect country getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well-appointed house on a gorgeous property with absolutely stunning views (pictures don't do it justice!). It's really very well situated - an easy 10-minute drive to Roscoe and Calicoon Center and maybe 20 minutes to Livingstone Manor and 15 minutes to Calicoon (on the Delaware River). If you want to be centrally located in Western Sullivan County, you can't do much better.

It's perfect for a do-nothing weekend in peace and quiet, but also a great base for hiking, antiquing, skiing, etc.

The property is peaceful and just isolated enough to be quiet and private, but it's not too far away from supermarkets and restaurants (not that there a lot of those in this part of the world). The house sits on top of a hill with a beautiful panoramic southern view of forested hills. A lovely pond really makes the whole scene special. It reflects the trees, and at night you can hear a bullfrog. You really couldn't arrange the property better if you tried.

There's plenty of room for outdoor activities (we set up a badminton net), nicely tended flower patches, and also lots of well-placed chairs for just taking in the view. (I can imagine there would be some great sledding in the winter).

In nice weather, there is a spacious, private deck with great views and a big sliding door to the kitchen. There's also a pretty covered porch if you want to stay out of the sun.

Inside, the house is very well maintained, with tasteful furnishings and spotless linens and towels. When we were there, we found that we had brought far too many utensils, as the kitchen has just about anything you could need.

There is a spacious upstairs bedroom with a comfortable queen bed. It shares a good-sized bathroom with a 2nd bedroom. Downstairs, there is another bedroom/full bathroom. Water pressure is great, and the well-water isn't too hard.

The dining room has a huge wooden table and stylish chandelier.

The living area is comfy, with a well-equipped office (printer, fax, reliable internet service, and great phone reception (we had three bars). There's a TV and stereo (with nice selection of movies and music).

The big kitchen is bright, with well-maintained appliances. The mudroom has w/d and extras (bug spray, torches, cleaning supplies, etc).

The owner is extremely accommodating and thoughtful. Honestly it's hard to think of anything we'd change. The only problem is we had to leave on Labor Day! We were beyond satisfied and will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to describe the house and property in such detail. It is so helpful to see someone else's perspective and you highlighted some aspects that I didn't think to include in the description. I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay this summer, and hope you will be able to return. Perhaps in the winter, when you can do some sledding? Thank you again for taking such great care of the house.
