Perfect country retreat if you are looking for a weekend get-away, or a week in the country. Great year-round!

Quiet and peaceful with over five acres of garden and land.

The space

Charming house in the amazing Catskills region of New York. The house sits on over five acres of beautiful land with amazing views.

Our house has two large bedrooms, each with a queen bed. There is a pullout couch in one of the bedrooms, that room alone can easily sleep a family of four. Living room is quite big with a comfy sectional couch.

The kitchen is fully equipped and appliances are brand new. A dining area seats six and a large porch with outdoor dining for up to eight. Gas grill on premises.

Two full bathrooms are available.

Only minutes from Callicoon, where you will find restaurants, antique shops, a movie theater, community center, playground, and the Delaware River.

nearby swimming, fishing and state park. For runners and cyclists, opportunities are awesome. Let us know, we'll gladly give you some ideas here.

2 hours from New York City, only 20 mins from Bethel NY, the site of the original Woodstock Festival

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house and the large open space/garden. The house is listed as a 2 bedroom, with both bedrooms being extra spacious. A optional, smaller third bedroom currently functions as a kids room.

Interaction with guests

We are typically off-site when renting out the house. This is very much a home though, and not a vacation rental.

Pets Allowed
Family/Kid Friendly
Free parking on premise
House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events

Our house is fully furnished and equipped. Our furniture is cozy and hopefully tasteful. We simply expect our guests to treat our place with respect and care. Abov all, enjoy it and have fun.

Once we receive a reservation we typically send out a detailed info sheet for things to do in the area, and some basic instructions (where to find what and what to do before leaving).

Michael's home is well-kept and sits on a vast, secluded piece of property in upper Sullivan County. It is ideal for kicking back and relaxing, listening to great records, grilling good food, and looking up at the stars at night. Michael himself was courteous and easy to communicate with. My girlfriend and I highly recommend his place for those looking for a simple getaway.

The house is beautiful and so is the property. Very secluded and quiet. A great escape from the city. Has everything you would need. FYI - no wifi if that's important to you.

We had such an amazing stay at this home, so quiet and secluded but also a short drive to town. Calicoon is a picture perfect town with tons to do, Michael has a binder with lots information and activities to do in the area. Definitely suggest the Woodstock site and museum, only 20 minutes away! We went in June and had an incredible nighttime show of fireflies/ lighting bugs. It was so amazing to watch them in the field while we made s'mores next to a fire!! Michael was an great host and communicated very well with us. Beautiful house and property, we would definitely stay here again and again.

This was our second visit here for a weekend getaway. It is quiet, simple, and relaxing. We love the expansive property including the huge trees and stream that runs along its edge. Michael is very easy to communicate with and helpful. He pointed us in the direction of a new farm to table restaurant, North Branch Inn, which was delicious. We will be back!

Stayed here over NYE with 3 friends! Michael's house was clean and spacious, although lived in, on a large peaceful property. He wasn't there when we checked in but left very clear instructions via email and text. There is no cell service or wifi in the house, but we really enjoyed the extensive record collection!

We know the Callicoon area well, and so a stay at Michael's beautiful home was perfect for our Thanksgiving holiday! It's not far from town but still feels quiet and secluded. We woke to a dozen deer on the lawn each morning and enjoyed a comfortable stay!
