The SpaceJust under 2 hours from NYC by car, our fully-modernized 1940 wooden ranch home sits on a quiet, private lake in the woods. Originally the Swedish Pavilion at the 1939 World Trade Fair held in New York, our home retains some nice touches such as the carved identifying stone slabs that were built into the living room's stone fireplace. There is a second fireplace in the kitchen that allows for warm atmospheric meals on chilly evenings. The kitchen is equipped with a 6-burner stainless steel stove oven as well as a full-sized refrigerator and a table that seats 8. Our bright, light-filled house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with lake views, plus a sleeping loft. Each room has queen-sized beds while the loft room also has a queen-size sleeper pull-out couch (making 4 queen-beds in total). There is a sitting room off the open-plan kitchen that also has a lake view. The house has a washer/dryer and satellite internet service. Its very bright and cheery - with four skylights and two eco-friendly tube lights. French doors off the living room lead out to a large open air porch with a great view of the lake. You can have meals out here on the picnic table or practice yoga. Your own private dock on a non-motor (calm and quiet!) lake is equipped with 2 kayaks and a row boat for fishing for bass, relaxing on the water, or watching salamanders, geese and beavers. Our property comes equipped with a propane gas barbecue. The house is located 12 minutes from Monticello where there are 3 supermarkets, including one that specializes in organic produce. We are 5 minutes from the Forestburgh Playhouse and 20 minutes from Bethel Woods Performance Arts Center. We are 30 minutes from rafting on the Delaware River and 30 minutes from Little Bear Ski Slopes. A bus service runs from NYC to Monticello and a train service from NYC to the town of Port Jervis which is only 20 minutes away. Please note: the house is in the woods and so internet is very spotty. It's delivered via a hotspot on an ATT cell and not reliable. Guest AccessGuests have access to all amenities. Fish on the lake. Lots of board games. Library. Fully equipped kitchen. Propane outdoor grill. (Propane tank refill is the responsibility of guests. Local gas stations sell refills.) Interaction with GuestsWe're not present during your stay but accessible by phone or email. The NeighborhoodWe love the immersion in nature, the thick forest and beautiful pines; The house's quiet nooks that allow for breathing room, even when the house is full of people. We often don't leave the porch over a weekend even though the area has cultural events, good hiking, eagle viewing and more! Getting AroundThere's a bus from Port Authority to Monticello. A taxi from there is 12 minutes to the house in Forestburgh. Other Things to NoteThe lake is not ideal for swimming. Its fairly shallow and weedy at the edge. A great swimming lake is a 5-minute drive down the road from the Forestburgh Playhouse. Follow that road down the hill and you can't miss the enormous lake and nature reserve with parking.

The Space“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...” ― Henry David Thoreau A unique hand made log cabin, deep in the woods yet only 90 miles from New York City. You get to "fetch" your water from the pond. Heat yourself with the wood stove. Light your way with a candle. Yes, you are back in time. You are close to nature. You are on your own! “I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” ― Henry David Thoreau Guest AccessIn fair weather access is "driveable" to the cabin via a dirt road. In winter... If you have a 4-wheel drive or Subaru you can drive into the site. Snow shoes or cross country skies recommended for heavy snow conditions. In winter please call to confirm our local conditions. Interaction with GuestsThis a special place for very special people. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Cell service is available from the cabin (sometimes). The NeighborhoodGenerally a quiet neighborhood. The occasional screech of an eagle or hawk, the splash of a beaver's tail, the knock-knock-knock of the red headed woodpecker, the chatter of squirrels. At night darkness rules. You can see the stars like you never have before. Just lay on your back on the dock and look up in amazement. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation direct to the cabin. The closest Rail Station is Port Jervis NY and Shortline Bus to Monticello. A cab ride is available. Remember, you will need to carry in your supplies. There is civilization within a few miles... Even a Walmart, fast food and shopping. Other Things to NoteJust remember you are going to be on your own. Dress for the season and weather condition. Bring extra clothes that may get wet. There is a wood stove for heat while you are in the cabin feeding the wood. Be mindful of your surroundings. Carry out any trash with you. Have fires only in the designated fire pits. And have a good time. “Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.” ― Henry David Thoreau

The SpaceThe original cabin centers on the massive fireplace which actually was the kitchen too. (The original open floor plan) A bedroom was added some decades ago along with a kitchen sink and stove. The bedroom overlooks the lake and is cozy and warm with a comfortable queen bed. For additional guests (automatically get booked into a second cabin when booking more than 2 guests) there is The Sleeping Porch Cabin nearby that has two queen beds. It has its own bath and kitchen too. (Great for the in-laws or kids!) Guest AccessBring your hiking boots, mountain bike and food. And don't forget your binoculars for eagle watching. Also available for larger gatherings is an additional cabin. For additional guests there is The Sleeping Porch Cabin next door that has two queen beds. It has its own bath and kitchen too. (Great for the in-laws or kids!) Interaction with GuestsCell service is poor in the area and non existent at the site so please plan on contacting me before you arrive. Only AT&T cell service works here. The NeighborhoodThere is plenty of wild life in the area. My favorite is the chipmunk who takes peanuts from my hand. Eagles, osprey and kingfishers visit the pond often. Deer visit nightly and you can occasionally hear the bark of a fox and the howls of coyotes. Getting AroundThe Cabin is located between Port Jervis and Monticello. And sorry there is no public transportation but cab service is available. I do recommend that you bring a car or better yet a 4 wheel drive vehicle especially in winter. Other Things to NoteRemember that you are in the woods, about half a mile from the nearest road. So plan your supplies carefully. There is civilization a few miles away, even a Walmart.

    Woodsy Catskill Summer House in Merriewold. Merriewold is a private enclave of summer homes dating back to the late 1890's. The house was built in 1931 by John Moody, the financier. The house is in a mature pine forest, surrounded by ferns and mountain laurel. Merriewold is entirely private, so there is little traffic on its private roads.

The rooms are spacious with ample room for nooks and spaces to find tranquility. The double decks, water side seating, and open lawn, gives everyone the opportunity to make it their own paradise. Centrally located to a number of attractions and activities within a 30 mile radius. Lake Joseph is known for their hospitality to two previous Archbishops of NY before becoming a private community. With wonderful trails leading to the old quarters or simply walking around the lake and bird watching, there is something for everyone. We have a few eagles nest, otters, and hawks that make Lake Joseph their home. You can find wine tasting, eagle washing, fishing, sporting clay, glass factories, and antiques stores. In addition, we are 10 miles from Bethelwoods the home of Woodstock (www.bethelwoodscenter.org). The town of Forestburgh is also known for their play productions that appeal to children and adults alike. There is something to experience at every season. We look forward to seeing you!

The guesthouse is equipped with a queen size bed for two as well as a convertible couch for one or two small children.

        You've always admired the retro styling of Airstream trailers and dreamt of setting off to some peaceful, remote spot to completely disconnect from your chaotic life. Well here is your chance! Laid-out like a meticulously-designed small boat, the bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed with windows (and shades) all around. There is even a small TV. The bathroom includes a shower (there is an outdoor shower off the back, too) with plenty of hot water, and the kitchen and accoutrements have been organized in such a clever fashion that you will marvel. Even the dining table and surrounding leather banquette convert handily to another queen size bed (king). Though this property closes in winter (at over 1 mile, the driveway is too long to plow), there is heat in the Airstream for comfort during chilly evenings. Wake to sunrise and the most pristine peace and quiet, and watch the fog in the valley slowly burn off. But wait, there's more! The plan was to add a small screened platform, but witness the really quite fabulous Pavilion! This fully-enclosed outbuilding is wrapped in numerous casement windows, echoing the feeling of a screened porch or sunroom, but then includes a comfy lounge, dining table, breakfast bar, terrific kitchen, and delightful full bathroom. And if your disconnecting from civilization does not mean missing the big game, grab the remote, there's a TV. It's pretty much a given that you and your peep(s) will want to hang at the mega fire pit under the stars. This is where people converse, where they connect. It's where your daily routine has not just been broken, it's been obliterated. It's what you'll remember when you think back on this vacation. This outstanding property is adjacent to the Neversink Unique Area (aka Neversink Gorge) an exceptional 6,500 acre preserve owned by New York State that features the Neversink River and surrounding lands. What makes this so cool, is that access to the river generally requires a 1.5 mile hike in, to reach this utterly unspoiled waterway, with its notable trout fishing, pools for swimming or plunging, and its memorable beauty. The Perch has a trail that leads into the Gorge proper, and a much shorter trail in. Some notes about staying at The Perch: It really is remote. There is cell service, and the Village of Monticello is just about 10 minutes away by car (a quarter of that just getting back to the road). but if you require Starbucks within walking distance, the sound of garbage trucks at dawn, and pizza delivery, you would do better elsewhere. The property largely runs on solar power, with generator for key components like the water pump and the a/c in the Pavilion.
