Leave behind city life and wander the Catskill Mountains!
We are situated on four wild acres with a crystal clear gentle brook running by each cottage and near waterfalls, flowing rivers, streams and hiking in the ancient local mountains and are a non-smoking dwelling.
Tumble into bed to the sound of our brook singing, soothed by a heated tile floor downstairs in winter or get cozy upstairs under the stars with a book or perhaps a cup of tea at dawn gazing out the window when snow softly falls. Rocking chair out the front door over the brook plus picnic table, blazing camp fire light under stars twinkling.
Upstairs is our 'sleep under the stars' master bedroom with large windows directly over brook, a skylight, small library, cathedral ceilings and hardwood floors....a small dwelling best suited for a romantically inclined couple. Our staircase is grandfathered in and a little steeper than code these days so older folks and parents take note.
The Cottage in the Wood best accommodates a romantically inclined couple....however,
we often sleep up to six ( for those who like being packed like sardines! )
Our extra bedroom with double bed ....carefully look at photos......
provides additional sleeping for children, your step mother or Uncle Harry in a double bed with an additional very firm foldaway floor mattress for two....or full bed futon couch downstairs in the tiny day room.
PLEASE NOTE: our downstairs day room is a very cozy space *only big enough for a futon couch, small kitchen table for the fully equipped kitchen, closet and bathroom with a bathtub....look at the photos please.
Also, please carefully note: upstairs, one must walk THROUGH the master bedroom (which has both privacy curtains and a screen) to reach the Americana themed second bedroom, hardwood floor, window on top of the brook and skylight.
If your party consists of two romantic couples, keep in mind, these two bedrooms are very close.... (Ask about availability for our other cottage next door if you are seeking complete privacy and intimacy while you 'paint your night' wink wink say no more)
NOTE: Over two adults is 25. per person and dependent on number of folks and length of stay. *Children's use of bedroom will be discounted depending on length of stay and number of kids.
Often 6 guests stay especially when spending time outside is more important to everyone than lots of space inside..... but check out Paint the Night Main House.... a little larger, comfortable for six people if available.
