Holiday Rental House
Enjoy our cozy cottage right next to “forever wild” land in the unblemished Catskill Forest Preserve. Just 2 1/2 hours from NYC in the heart of the Catskills, our recently renovated, log-sided cottage is the perfect getaway. In warm weather... Our house is a quick walk (or a minute by car) to the Belleayre Beach at Pine Hill Lake, which has it all: kayaks, pedal boats, barbecue grills, volleyball, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, swimming lessons, and a white sand beach. The sand isn't local, but the vibe definitely is. In autumn, come for the leaf peeping... and if you love apple picking, no need to go to an orchard, you can do it right in our front yard! We have five apple trees (different varieties: red, yellow and green) and we have more fruit than we know what to do with...

When you are done exploring the great outdoors.... Enjoy our beautiful natural stone fireplace, our outdoor fire pit, or our Blu-ray DVD player and HDTV. And we've installed Cable TV and High Speed WiFi, so you can get online and check your email, etc. Our kitchen has a professional Garland oven/stove.

In addition to skiing and swimming, the area features other year-round fun and activities: hiking, biking, tubing, waterfalls, fishing, golf, tennis, soccer, baseball, horseback riding, concerts, antiquing, and more. • Ten minutes to Phoenicia (voted one of the 'Coolest Small Towns in America') • Only thirty minutes to Woodstock • Less than eight miles to the Full Moon Resort. • The famous, fabulous Peekamoose Restaurant is only a mile away (4 ½ stars on TripAdvisor!) • In the summer, attend outdoor concerts at the Belleayre Music Festival, or the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice. • Ten minutes to the Delaware & Ulster Railroad, a leisurely train ride, offering magnificent scenery • Fifteen minutes to the world’s largest kaleidoscope, The KaleidOscraper, a 65-foot grain silo refashioned into a gigantic toy and light show Come enjoy the Catskills!

About the neighbourhood
The house is set right on a beautiful creek. We are minutes from skiing in the winter, and a lake beach in the summer. And of course all of the other Catskills activates are close by: hiking, antiquing, restaurants, etc.
Getting around
• The house is conveniently situated on the NYC Trailways bus route along Route 28, and the bus will let you off right at our driveway if you tell the driver where to stop. • There is intermittent public transportation. You can flag the bus right from the road. • However, we recommend that you have a car to get around since Catskills activities are widespread.
