The SpaceThe Esopus Creek is across the street, and you can walk to Phoenicia Main Street and NYC/Woodstock bus. Located on a quiet country road, a 20-minute drive from Woodstock and 2 hours from the George Washington Bridge, the house has bamboo floors, clawfoot bathtub, large kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, deck, garden. There are two bedrooms, both with double beds, and you can put a mattress pad for one person on the floor of the meditation room. There's also a double-sized pull-out couch in the living room. You're here for country living, right? So there's no TV, no a/c, no cell service. (Also no hair dryer and no ironing board.) We do have free wireless Internet, and you can use our home phone for local and long-distance calls. (There's Verizon cell service in town and AT&T a couple miles up the road, and, again, we DO have wifi.) We have only one bathroom. Out the back door and across the stream is a meadow with a series of wildflowers blooming from spring through early fall. From the meadow, you can walk straight onto the mountain and begin exploring. (NOTE: Our back yard is somewhat hazardous for small children, who should not be left unattended, as there is a short but steep drop to a seasonal stream.) More hiking, plus fishing, tubing, and swimming, are within walking distance, and many state hiking trails are 5 to 15 minutes away by car. For skiing and snowboarding, Belleayre Mountain is a 20-minute drive (bus available in winter), and Hunter Mountain is just a little farther. Walk into Phoenicia for a small grocery store, several restaurants (cappuccino and snacks at Mama's Boy, brick oven pizza and an extensive menu at Brio's, steak and seafood at The Phoenician), Sportsman's Bar (featuring $1 tacos and $3 margaritas on Tuesday evenings), art gallery, bank with ATM, pharmacy, boutiques. NOTE: This house is our home, not a rental cottage. We clean for hours before our guests arrive--using obsessively natural cleansers-- but we are both writers, not hotelkeepers. The vast majority of our guests are quite comfortable here. However, if you are the finicky type, you might want to look for more upscale, pristine accommodations. Here you will find a rickety record player and an eclectic collection of vinyl (Nina Simone, Brahms, Giuseppe Logan, Frank Zappa, Woody Guthrie, Smothers Brothers, etc.) You can also use our two yoga mats. It's a three-mile drive to Chichester Yoga. Zen Mountain Monastery is also three miles away, and Woodstock has a Tibetan monastery, 15 miles away, both offering community meditations. SUMMARY OF SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: 2 people - 10-inch double mattress on wood frame, 3 feet above the floor in front bedroom 2 people - 8-inch double mattress on floor in back bedroom 2 people - double-sized pull-out couch in living room. 1 person - 3-inch foam mattress on floor in meditation room, back bedroom, or living room. NOTE that there is only ONE BATHROOM. Guest AccessThe whole house is available to you, except the garage and the small office attached to it. Interaction with GuestsWe will not be onsite during your stay. If schedules allow, we will meet you when you arrive, and we will be available by phone if you have any questions. The NeighborhoodNestled between a mountain and the hamlet of Phoenicia, the house provides the best of both worlds--spectacular natural beauty with the convenience of restaurants, shops, and cash machine a short walk away. Getting AroundThere is plenty of room to park in our driveway. The bus from New York City (and Woodstock) stops in Phoenicia, a seven-minute walk from the house.

The SpaceThe Blue house has everything you need for a quiet romantic getaway, a leaf-peeping adventure, a small gathering among friends, or a family vacation. It is quaint, filled with light, magical, and convenient. (And after booking, you will receive a note about how to cash in on the Blue House Secret Discounts at some of our favorite local purveyors of delight. For real.) RATES: $190.00 per night during the week, two night minimum stay. $230.00 per night on the weekends, two night minimum stay. Some holidays are more expensive than others. Please inquire. MID WEEK SPECIAL: A mid-week stay includes two complimentary glasses of wine or pints of locally crafted draft beer at our beloved Peekamoose Tap Room, ten minutes up the road. This is redeemable only on a Monday or Thursday night. We allow 4 adults max, and in the case of families, 2 adults and 3 kids, or 3 adults and two kids. And while we are happy to open our home to you and yours, please remember that this is a home and not a hotel, and use kindness and respect toward our things. Also, please refrain from inviting overnight guests. We have rented to you, and only you. If you have a request that falls outside of these parameters (for instance, you want to travel with a grandparent, etc.) reach out and ask, and we may say yes, depending on the circumstances. Please also note that we do not have a TV, or cell service, and our phone service is for local calls only. But we do have wireless internet, and cell service is available in Phoenicia. Guest AccessYou can hike, swim, stroll through Phoenicia, which VOGUE MAGAZINE recently called a "magical" place (a four minute drive), ski (a ten minute drive to Belleayre and Hunter), eat at one of the many charming restaurants nearby, grill up some farm-to-table, sip a cocktail on our deck while gazing out at the ridge of Romer Mountain, or cuddle up and read in the house. Or make a fire (responsibly :) in our fire pit. You can also check out Zen Mountain Monastery, just eight minutes away, Woodstock, Saugerties, or one of the many little towns in these parts. Interaction with GuestsWe live right up the road and are available for any and all questions or concerns. And also to say hello and help you find your way around the house and the region. The NeighborhoodThe Catskills are, after all, the new Hamptons. But here you can actually soak in the natural beauty, style, and good company without all the traffic and none of the high-falutin attitude. Come to Phoenicia for a true retreat in one of the last small towns around (nothing corporate for miles—and barely any cell service!), serious outdoor sport and fun, and some killer food. Getting AroundThere are lots to things to do within a twenty minute drive. And lots more if you want to drive more. You can also bike to town and hiking trails, and walk to the stream for swimming or rock throwing. Other Things to NoteThe blue house has two seasonal screened in porches, and one fabulous cedar deck. Mountain views throughout.

The SpaceHello! PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT A BOOKING REQUEST UNTIL YOU HAVE HEARD FROM US! AirB changed their system to make it tediously time-consuming to decline a reservation; our place may have been booked on another site or the price may be showing wrong, etc., so it's very important to ask us before you try to book. Also please do not inquire for short stays that are more than 3 weeks away; we only rent out on other sites until then because AirBnb add so many fees! Our price per night goes down the longer you stay. Our price is $400 for the first two nights and $80 - 100 for each additional night; if you see a $100/nt price, that is for a week's stay. If you want to book with us, don't submit a reservation request, just a query, so that I can adjust the price to reflect your dates. AirBnB fees may cause a higher price to show than you see for this listing on other sites. Spend cozy evenings reading beside the fire in our spacious living area - or listening to the sounds of nature on the front porch of our beautiful and rustic log cabin. Some of New York's best trout fishing is just down the hill on the creek - which feeds into the Esopus River a mile away. And another mile up the road are some of New York State's best hiking and camping trails. Our cabin is beautifully decorated with local antiques; and we can tell you all the best places to look for good stuff. This is a perfect spot for nature lovers who want true serenity and the glory of the mountains and sunshine all around you. No matter the season, you will find your soul restored after a weekend (or if you're lucky, a whole week) at our place. We love dogs and cats as long as they don't scratch the furniture. They will thank you for taking them to this little piece of heaven! A note -- we have a one-week minimum until about 3 weeks ahead. Unfortunately we can't indicate this on the calendar. Guest AccessThe house is yours to use as your own castle until check-out, as long as you are respectful and quiet! Interaction with GuestsYou are all on your own! The NeighborhoodThis is mountain paradise! Getting AroundYou can take the bus but you really do need a car up there. Other Things to NoteThe cabin has everything you need but nothing extra -- no a/c, no TV (but at the moment we do have wifi), no cell service. It is for nature lovers who want to experience a little isolation but not too much! Our price is on the lower end for our valley, but you are paying for location and not fancy, renovated space!

    The Space3 Bedrooms, Fireplace, Jacuzzi--sleeps 8! A beautiful balance between nature and culture! Romantic, charming, very comfortable house with 3 bedrooms (sleeps 8), large hot tub (for 5 and which really works perfectly ! one past guest might indicates in her review that it does not but they had switch the fuse box out !!) , gas fireplace, & all amenities (dishwasher, washer/dryer, hi-speed wireless internet, TV w/ 200 channels, DVD player, hair dryer.. which also works if no one press on the reset button!! & more). Lots of natural light, river in front of house, and stream behind. The incredible location has it all: alpine ski during the winter but during Spring and Summer all outdoors activities you can imagine, and the phenomenal Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice ( check the website) with more than 30 events in 5 days ranging from opera to Broadway with international stars!! close by mountains are Hunter, Belleayre.. lots of forest (our backyard is a national forest!), and you're just a walk across a quaint bridge from the center of Phoenicia, mentioned in the NY Times' 'Havens' column. Great variety of restaurants, Sweet sue and her incredible pancakes, Tavern 214, Brios, Phoenicia Diner,Ricciardella etc.., shops, and NYC buses that bring you there from Port Authority in just over two hours! Perfect for couples with/without children, family/friend reunions, or solitary retreats from the city. Let us know if you are celebrating something special, and expect a few "extra" surprises! if you bring your pet with you, we will ask for an extra $20/night/pet. we usually do not ask you if it is a dog or a chimpanzee ( we never had a chimpanzee yet!), same for all furry or less furry friends. oh, and lastly! no, no! no one will be renting the next door attached studio during your stay!! :) Tis' the season, OFFER A WEEKEND GATEWAY AS A CHRISTMAS GIFT- WE DO GIFT CERTIFICATES! inquire with me! Guest AccessFree internet/Phone( but we already said that!) Cable ( HBO etc…) You will be given a private door code to access the house, so you can arrive at whatever time.. or have your friends meeting you there before you. Interaction with GuestsOnly if you need us.. otherwise your privacy, comfort and independence is our priority! we are sometimes in the back studio... but only to serve you better.. Louis, my husband, Wotan our puppy ( who loves people) and myself... but it remains rare when we are there at the same time than our guests... again.. it is very private even if we are around! if you ever see or meet us , you will understand immediately that your fun , relaxation is our joy.. The Neighborhoodquiet , welcoming and loving guests and visitors, You are not isolated, and can see the houses around but all are very private and seriously welcoming! Getting Around From Port Authority, NYC, it is absolutely direct by bus! in a little less than 3 hours you can be dropped almost at the door! otherwise, having a car there is probably the best… wandering in our mountains, villages it is best with car.. you can rent bikes in town to and they are local taxis and bus service. Other Things to Note The sofa couch has a very comfy air-mattress incorporated in it! ask us where the pump is before sleeping on a non inflated mattress... not fun at all to sleep in it otherwise! ( it has happened!)

    The SpaceEscape to paradise to this private and charming home in Woodland Valley overlooking a rushing year round stream and surrounded by state land. Our house is warm and toasty for the winter with lovely cast iron gas wood stoves in the kitchen and living room/ bedroom for a warm and cozy winter stay. The house is ideally located on a quiet, dead end, dirt road far away from Woodland Valley Road (and way far away from any main roads like Route 28). No cars, no noise, only the sound of the year round Muddy Brook Stream and the birds in the surrounding forever wild state forest. The house is decorated with antique and contemporary furnishings and details, including antique barn beams and antique wood paneling paired with contemporary designer appliances and light filling skylights throughout the house and balconies overlooking the stream. HIgh ceilings downstairs and high pitched cathedral ceilings upstairs give the house an open and airy feel throughout. Leave your busy life behind and get away from it all here but be close to Phoenicia (Sweet Sue's pancakes, Brios pizza, numerous shops) and skiing, hikiing, tubing, fishing, etc. Guest AccessHere's what parts of the house are yours to enjoy: The Kitchen, Living Room/ Bedroom and Bathroom on the first floor and the bathroom on the second floor. The two large rooms downstairs offer lots of space and light. We have balconies off the kitchen and living room/ bedroom plus a screened in porch plus lots of windows and skylights to let the light in and enjoy the surrounding forest and stream. We have cast iron gas "wood" stoves in the two large rooms downstairs and electric heat upstairs to keep you warm and cozy inside. Note in the colder temps we are closing off the upstairs bedroom. The upstairs den may also be closed off- please ask if it is important to you to have a TV and we will do our best to accommodate but prefer to keep the den closed. We would prefer to close both rooms so we can keep our heating costs down and keep our rates the same. There is plenty of room to enjoy- a cozy, warm and roomy kitchen downstairs, bath and the large living room/bedroom downstairs and the light filled bathroom upstairs. Our unfinished basement is a bit of a hazard. It's the door across from the downstairs bathroom. Please do not go in the basement- it's a mess and we don't want you to judge us!

Spend the day there swimming laps in the 26 acre lake, sunning or kayaking/ canoeing (bring your own). There are also some good hiking trails in the forest preserve there. The link below mentions Colgate Lake as well as all waters in the Catskill Park for fishing but with the exception of the reservoirs, most are available for swimming. (URL HIDDEN) LOCAL HIKING GUIDE FOR PHOENICIA AND WOODLAND VALLEY WOODLAND VALLEY TRAILHEAD/CAMPGROUND Two major trails are available from this trailhead: Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail (also known as the Burrow Range Trail) and the Phoenicia-East Branch Trailhead, which links up with the Giant Ledge trails. Take a right onto Route 28, and take your first quick right onto Woodland Valley Road. Cross the Esopus Creek and take a right at the “T”. Bear left at the fork and continue on Woodland Valley Road 5.8 miles to the campground and trailhead. Day-use parking fee applies. Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail (or Burroughs Range Trail) Phoenicia 9.75 miles (one-way) red markers 3,620-foot elevation gain Difficulty: challenging to Terrace Mountain Trail: 2.6 miles, 1 hr 30 min to Wittenberg summit: 3.9 miles, 2 hr 30 min to Cornell summit: 4.7 miles, 3 ht to Slide summit: 7.0 miles, 4 hr 30 min to Slide Mountain prkng area: 9.75 miles, 5 hr 30 min Accessed either from the Woodland Valley Campground on the east or the Woodland Valley- Denning Trail on the west, this trail provides a challenging route through the heart of the Slide Mountain Wilderness, ascending Wittenberg, Cornell and Slide Mountain. The eastern approach is notably more difficult, often requiring the use of one's hands to negotiate several rock ledges. At higher elevations, thick stands of balsam fir channel the hiker upwards, adding an element of surprise to the beautiful panorama that unfolds on the various summits. Phoenicia East Branch Trail A short trail connecting the Woodland Valley Trailhead with the Giant Ledge-Panther Mountain- Fox Hollow Trail. Accessed from the Woodland Valley Campground Trailhead. Curtis-Ormsbee Trail Olivera Difficulty: moderate Branches off the lower part of the Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail. Often referred to as the scenic route up Slide Mountain, the Curtis-Ormsbee trail provides the hiker with three panoramic vistas to the south and west and a moderate "terraced" ridge hike through stunted northern hardwoods. It links the Phoenicia-East Branch Trail with the Wittenberg-Slide-Cornell Trail. The total length is 7.35 miles or 8.65 miles if you visit Slide Mountain. You will enter on the Phoenicia - East Branch Trail that is blazed in yellow. In 3.25 miles you will find the junction to the North East (on the left) to the Curtis-Ormsbee Trail, blazed in blue. Follow those markers for 1.6 miles to the junction with Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail. This trail is blazed in red. If you turn right and walk .65 mile you will reach the summit of Slide Mountain. If you turn left you will pick up the Phoenicia-East Branch Trail (marked in yellow) that you originally came in on. From here, the parking lot is about 2.5 miles. Remember: Yellow, Blue, Red, and Yellow. GIANT LEDGE Giant Ledge-Panther Mountain- Fox Hollow Trail Shandaken/Olivera 7.45 miles (one way), blue markers 2,620-foot elevation gain from Fox Hollow Difficulty: challenging Take Route 28 to Big Indian, turning south onto County Road 47. Drive past the parking area at the hairpin turn on 47 to the next parking area and park This trail follows along a north-south ridge that offers spectacular views to the north (the Devil's Path) and to the east (Woodland Valley) from both Giant Ledge and the summit of Panther. The ascent from either direction is interspersed with level stretches suggesting a "terracing" effect through mixed hardwoods at lower elevations and ultimately through the scent-laden balsam fir. Popular in part but noticeably less traveled north of Panther Mountain, this section of trail provides the hiker with a sense of solitude. Blue Markers. Giant Ledge Olivera 1.6 miles (one way) 1,100-foot elevation gain Difficulty: easy/moderate Take Route 28 to Big Indian; turn south onto County Road 47. Travel about 8 miles to the hairpin turn. Park in the area there. The shortest and easiest route up Giant Ledge is from the Giant Ledge Trailhead. Begin by crossing the road and following the yellow marked Woodland Valley-Denning Trail east .75 miles until its juncture with the blue marked Giant Ledge-Panther Trail. Turn left, heading north .85 miles to the summit, with excellent views to both the east and west. Terrace Mountain Trail Phoenicia 0.9 miles (one way), yellow markers, 300-foot descent Difficulty: easy Accessed from the Burroughs Range Trail, the Terrace Mountain Trail is a short and easy hike with a very gradual descent, ending at the Terrace Mountain Lean-to. Bare rock outcroppings and low blueberry bushes best characterize the open "meadows" interspersed along the trail. NOTE: there is no water source at the Terrace Mountain Lean-to. Tremper Mountain Fire Tower Phoenicia 2.75 miles to summit, red markers The Tremper Mountain Fire Tower can be reached from two different directions. The shortest, and most popular route begins at the trailhead of the redblazed Phoenicia Trail along County Route 40 outside the hamlet of Phoenicia. The tower may also be reached via the 4.2-mile, blueblazed, Willow Trail. This trailhead is located along Jessup Road in Willow. PHOENICIA SNOW AND SKI INFO LOCAL ski mountains- check the websites for downhill, cross country, night skiing, snow tubing, etc. I include these all year round since they often have non winter and off season activities like concerts, bike riding, festivals, etc. There are area ski shops that offer discount lift tickets and equipment- esp. since you wanted to x-ctry ski- if you just want to go into the woods by the house- here is one: (URL HIDDEN) If you want the easiest and closest to get to then go to Belleayre- it's a great mountain.

    The SpaceWelcome to Catskill Getaways in Phoenicia! Your fabulous getaway starts with a scenic drive to the Catskills and a stop at one of the farm stands for provisions. Once you breathe in this glorious mountain air and see the Esopus Creek (really a river) you'll agree -- the living is easy! No need to compromise. You have the best of all worlds. Catskill Getaways is a former half acre bungalow property at the base of Woodland Valley. We're located in a safe, historic and quaint neighborhood almost a mile from Phoenicia. The Esopus Studio was thoughtfully renovated and features a modern kitchen, a crisp clean bathroom with a heat lamp, a front open porch and back screened-in porch for your exclusive use, and a queen size bed with quality linens. There's an ottoman that converts to a small twin bed. If you've never experienced a gas cast iron heat stove, it heats and looks like a wood stove, but you don't have to feed the fire. There is also a seasonal flower / organic veggie-herb garden. We use high quality, non-toxic cleaning products to ease our footprint on the environment and to help guests with chemical sensitivities. It’s all good … crisp, fresh and clean lodgings, impeccable attention to your needs, a perfect location and competitively priced. Amenities galore. Have breakfast on the porch. Make 'smores in the fire pit. Pick salad from the vegetable garden. Skip rocks along the Esopus Creek. Meander along peaceful country roads. Ride a bike. Walk down the street and take a dip in the Esopus. Take advantage of the multitude of activities like tubing, skiing, swimming, fishing, hiking and much more. Take a break from the city without having to travel far. It’s just 1 hour and 50 minutes from the George Washington Bridge to our quaint and cool hamlet of Phoenicia. If you want to stay local, Phoenicia is self-contained with a variety of restaurants, all sorts of shops, some quirky, a cooperative gallery and a community theater. We're known for our friendly, artsy and unpretentious small town charm combined with great restaurant and pub choices. If you want to venture out, the Hudson Valley has a treasure chest of cultural offerings. This is a perfect time for fall/winter activities. Hike one of the trails or ski ski one of the four ski resorts in the area. We provide a range of suggestions. Relax by the Esopus Creek, take a scenic drive, check out one of the farm-to-table restaurants, get cozy in front of the gas fireplace in the cooler evenings and take in the night sky by the Pony Bar(n) at night ... restorative and magical. While booking please remember that we have a 3-day minimum for holidays. Please note that while we accept bookings from first-time Airbnb users with no reviews, we do expect you to have fulfilled the basic verification requirements and profile info as well as provide a note about yourself and others traveling with you.

Phoenicia was recently featured in Travel and Leisure's 25 Easy Weekend Getaways. We are part of the watershed that supplies water to 9 million customers including all of NYC--the Ashokan reservoir. Our hamlet of Phoenicia has a population of around 300 yet hosts monumental events like the International Festival of the Voice with panache. We are near four ski resorts: Belleayre, Hunter, Windham and Plattekill. The Phoenicia Library lends out fishing poles and ukuleles. You are always near a world-class hiking trail. Our beloved local poet is a candidate at every presidential election. Most of our friends think Phoenicia has a vibe that’s cooler than Woodstock. We keep the location of swimming holes secret until we’re sure you will respect our pristine waters...really. Farm-to-Table foodies will be in good company. The first ski area in the state of NY was located just down the street. We have hummingbirds in the summer. We get excited about the annual garden tour, the yearly artists tour and the groovy Arts Upstairs openings and community gatherings every month. For culinary treats buy local: Migliorelli's Farm Stand on Route 28 is now open. Most of the area is a protected forest preserve. There is a plethora of sports and cultural activities, a world-class spa, fabulous restaurants at all price ranges, fun shops, awesome bakeries, and to meet the needs of the most discerning travelers. Our guests hail from all parts of the world to this very small hamlet. For these reasons and many more, we think we have an awesome place to live. Our goal is to share it with you and make sure you have an enjoyable and restorative stay.

Walk to the river, hiking trails, pancakes at Sweet Sue's and thousands of acres of Forever Wild Land. This 1-bedroom cabin is perfect for a single person or couple and a well-behaved dog. There is a raised queen air mattress for a third guest. Built as a rustic hunting cabin in the 50s, it has been renovated with wood and ceramic tile, and decorated with traditional and contemporary art. Now it is one large space with a vaulted ceiling and skylights. Please be aware that since this is a country cottage, critters may pay you a visit.

    The SpaceThis place is unique because it has a beautiful wood stove and more pine paneling than one would think possible. It feels like a cabin but has all the amenities of home! Internet, wifi, cable, propane heat (in case the stove isn't enough) and lots of communal space. Guests have access to the entire house, the deck and the yard, where there is a charcoal grill and a firepit. My father and mother own the house, but only visit in the summer. I live in Brooklyn and visit when I can. Seemed a shame to let it sit empty so often! Just 2 miles from the little burg of Phoenicia along the Esopus river, the cabin is convenient to Hunter, Bellayre and Plattekill slopes. There are also numerous swimming holes in the area! No public transit, but there are trails everywhere! Friendly neighbors and lots of fishing spots! Guest AccessWinter- skiing Hunter, Belleayre, Wyndham, & Plattekill Mtns. Town of Phoenicia- Brios Cantina, Sweet Sue's, art shops Hiking- Woodland Valley State Campground, roads in the area Water- Woodland Valley Creek and Esopus River Interaction with GuestsBy phone or e-mail The NeighborhoodThe quiet, the trees, the stream, walking in the neighborhood. I love the fresh air, the clear skies and walking along Woodland Valley Creek Getting AroundYou need a car to get around, but the Woodland Valley Road is a nice 6 mile walk along the creek. Also Panther Kill Rd leads up to a monastery. also nice Other Things to NoteIt is two miles into Phoenicia from the cabin. It is a very pleasant walk. Recommendations: 1) Food: Phoenicia - Mamas Boy cafe, Brios Pizza, and the Phoenica Diner are all pretty great. Those are my go-tos. Woodstock has good places and Peekamoose is supposed to be good. The hot dog cart on the right as you head towards the cabin on 28 is good for a dog and a chat with the charming proprietor. 2) activities: There are many great hikes - Giant Ledge, The Woodland Valley trail at the end of Woodland Valley is good and connected to other trails, Mt. Tremper is close, we just climbed Hunter on the Becker Hollow trail (intense climb), and we have several trail guidebooks at the cabin. Also, Hunter, Bellayre and Windham are all in close driving distance. If it's hot, you can tube the esopus river from Phoenicia. Also, Kaaterskill Falls is great, but can be crowded on weekends. Big Deep and Blue Hole are serious swimming holes. 3) There is a gas station, small grocery store, and everything shop in Phoenica, but for groceries we go to the IGA in Boiceville on rte 28. It's real close to phoenicia. Kingston is the nearest big town with all your amenities, but there are some good shops along rte 28. Kenco outdoors equipment is great if you need anything of that sort. And the Catamount is some pretty fine dining and shopping. Hope that helps. You don't need to bring any towels or bedding. It is all there for you to use, as is the kitchen/dining situation. We have a charcoal grill and wood is stock for your use in the fireplace.

    The SpaceWe affectionately refer to our guest cottage as "Phoebe Cottage" due to the nesting Phoebe's that return every year and take up residence under the eaves of the entrance and usually have two clutches. Depending on the time you stay with us you may get to see the little fledglings take their first flight. This cottage is definitely an escape. It is nestled up the mountain about 150 yards from the road (either referred to as Old Route 28, or Old Plank Road to the locals, or Mt. Tremper-Phoenicia Road, by new mapping software) which winds by the Esopus Stream. It is surrounded by Catskill Park wild land. You can go out your door and traipse up the mountain if you desire, or there are many trail-heads in the area you can take advantage of. The only other home you will see is our home across the drive-way. You will have your privacy but also the security of someone nearby to answer any questions. Your views will be of woodlands, streams, mountains, and the gardens we have cultivated. The downstairs of the two story cottage features a comfortable living space with roomy day bed that sits in front of a large picture window. The day bed also doubles as a very comfortable twin bed for a third guest. The drop leaf dining table seats two to four people and is positioned in front of a lovely propane soapstone stove to warm up the room should you be staying with us during the cooler months. The kitchen is well appointed to accommodate your needs, including toaster oven, microwave, electric tea kettle, small refrigerator, French press, double hot plate, blender etc. Please note there is NO oven. Upstairs is one large great room with a queen size bed, dresser, night tables, rocker, and antique desk. There is a closet and a large farm table that spans the width of the room. When sitting at the table you are looking out onto the tree tops and mountains. It is perfect place to write with plenty of room to stretch out your papers and books, or work on an art project. And in-between the bedroom and the table is a nice size open space with a high chapel ceiling. A perfect place to stretch out a yoga mat and practice unencumbered. Outside the cottage there is comfortable lounge seating for 4 people and a charcoal grill available for your use (you will need to provide the charcoal/lighter fluid). The cottage is decorated with eclectic vintage furniture and art. Much of the textile items (pillows, curtains, cushions etc) were created by your host, who has her own cottage business, Goats Hill Sudio. There is a book shelf filled with a wide variety of weekend reading material and board games. There is high-speed wireless internet service (30 Mbps down, 5 Mbps up). The Cellular towers do not reach to our location, however AT&T customers can use our microcell and have full service on the mountain. Down in the village, Verizon customers will find some pockets of connectivity if they need it. Our house phone can be made available to you for local calls or in case of any emergency. There is no TV, but you can, of course stream shows and movies on your laptops or other connected devices and there is a smart phone dock/speaker system so you can play music and such from your phone/tablet. We have tried to provide all the necessities for preparing meals in a vacation rental. During the summer months we are happy to share our herb garden with you. And if you are a fan of hot (URL HIDDEN) sure to ask Wayne about his home made varieties...he is always happy to share. If you enjoy nature this is a great place to stay. It is not uncommon to see a family of turkeys walk through the yard, red and gray squirrels, chipmunks, bunnies, deer, occasionally a nocturnal porcupine, fox, bears (rarely and usually across the ravine) and whole host of birds including, Phoebes, Humming Birds, Blue Jays, Tufted Titmouses, Assorted Woodpeckers, Hawks, Eagles, Chickadees, Gold Finches, Cardinals and Robins. The property has mountain streams bordering on two sides. You can walk directly off the property onto Catskills Forest Preserve, make your way up to the cliffs for a memorable view of the village and surrounding mountains, then come back down into Phoenicia and return along the main road which passes by our neighbor's herd of goats. Guest AccessYou will have full access to Phoebe Cottage and your own outdoor seating area, Tiki torches, and charcoal grill. Plus your own off street parking right next to the cottage for up to 2 vehicles. Interaction with GuestsWe will greet you upon arrival, give you the lay of the land and answer any questions you may have. We will be present during your stay. Both of us often work from home, so one of us is usually around, and you are welcome to knock on our door or text us should you have questions or need assistance. In the rare cases when we are unable to meet you upon your arrival a detailed welcome note will be left for you and arrangements will be made for the cottage to be unlocked.
