-- THE PROPERTY --
Bedroom: King Bed
Nestled on the second floor of the house, this historic apartment has been meticulously maintained and perfectly updated to create a modern retreat for guests! You'll enjoy amenities such as free wireless internet connection, along with on-site laundry machines, during your stay. But don't worry! This 1880's home has still maintained its nostalgic charm, helping you slow down as though you lived in simpler times.
Those who prefer privacy can make themselves comfortable in their apartment's living room, while social butterflies can mingle in the main home's common living area, boasting a sound system, plush furnishings, and floor-to-ceiling windows - that create a bright and airy atmosphere. It's the ideal place to practice yoga or play music! If your heart lies in the outdoors, find a shady spot to curl up with a good book under one of the century-old hardwood trees. There's also a screened-in porch - the perfect place to savor morning coffee and evening nightcaps.
Don't hesitate to dive into the shared pool, located just a few steps from the house! When hunger strikes, head back to your apartment for an at-home meal easily prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. You won't have to put any thought into breakfast since it comes complimentary with your stay!
End the day on a sweet note with stargazing and s'mores around the outdoor fire pit. A hot shower and king-sized bed, plus other creature comforts, will be waiting back inside to supply a peaceful night's sleep.
-- THE LOCATION --
The beauty of the Hudson Valley lies at your fingertips while staying at this idyllic vacation rental! Nestled on 3 private acres of pastoral land, this property features a prime location within walking distance of Catskill Village's attractions, restaurants, and shops.
Bring along fishing rods for days well spent on the Catskill Creek! This area is well known for trout fly fishing. If you prefer boating, easily launch your boat from Dutchmen's Landing Park onto the 315-mile long Hudson River - home to several species of fish, including striped bass. Kayaking is also a great activity option!
Additional outdoor adventures include hiking, picnicking, and horseback riding in areas such as the Indian Head Wilderness and Kaaterskill Wild Forest. Don't miss out on seeing the 260-foot tiered Kaaterskill Falls! When snow falls, head to Hunter Mountain or Windham Mountain Resort, both located just 35 minutes away, for unforgettable memories skiing and snowboarding. The resorts also offers summer activities, such as ziplining, off-roading, and disc golf.
Located only a 10-minute walk away, the RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary, which the property borders, offers a chance to experience the beauty of swamp flora and fauna with hiking trails as well. Even enjoy a kayak or canoe ride down Catskill Creek!
Tour the countryside, visiting wineries such as Clermont Vineyards & Winery and Tousey Winery as you make your way through the Hudson Valley. The Hudson Valley is also known for its breweries, like Crossroads Brewing Company and Hudson Brewing Company. The Clermont State Historic Site, the Emerson Kaleidoscope, and the Olana State Historic Site are all worthy stops as well!
If you don't feel like cooking after a long day, treat yourself to a spectacular meal out at one of the farm-to-table restaurants close to the property. Fish & Game, just 15 minutes away, has been voted one of America's 100 best wine restaurants!

My wife and I were looking for a quick getaway after visiting family in upstate NY and we could not be happier with our first bed and breakfast experience. The house was beautiful and located in the great small town of Catskill. Homemade breakfast in the morning turned out being far better than we can actually make ourselves, it was amazing and worth the trip itself! Going to recommend staying here to all my family in the area and we plan on visiting again in the summer when the pool is open and the trees have leaves.

A wonderful, eclectic mix of the old and new. A comfortable, functional home that makes you happy to be there. Our hosts, Willy and John, were attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable about the area. Breakfasts were delicious. We definitely plan to stay here again.

Jon and Willy are fantastic hosts. We arrived late from the city and they were up and welcomed us enthusiastically. Breakfast was amazing and I am still dreaming of everything we ate. Jon and Willy also shared so many fabulous local recommendations with us. We were up for the weekend to hike and will definitely be back to explore again soon.
