1850 Watson House in Catskill Park, with the sound of the Bushkill Creek passing by. Clean, airy, peaceful. Stone patio, herb & flower garden, screened porch, wood-fired grill, hammock, and a picket-fence. Favorite summer spot – the sunroom with french doors open to the garden. Vintage modern furniture and art. Town, restaurants, hikes, nearby.

We love having kids stay, but our house is not child proof. If you'd like to bring children under 8 years old, check with us before booking so we can be sure our house is a good fit. We'll get back to you quickly.
We allow one friendly, well behaved dog guest with prior approval. Check with us before booking. Dogs must be on leash except within the fenced yard. Please pick-up after your dog. We charge a one time $50 pet fee. No cats.
Please use the stone fireplace, not the wood stove. Keep the screen in front of the fire and never leave a fire unattended, inside or out.
COOKING / GRILLING / TRASH
Use the outdoor stone grill, it’s lovely. Don’t leave food or trash or bones outside. No cooking/grilling in the fireplace inside. Please don’t put pans, griddle, etc. away with food in them. Help yourselves to spices, salt, pepper, sugar. Otherwise, guests must provide their own groceries. Do not throw away or consume our groceries or beverages. If you need to borrow something replace it in kind.
WINDOWS, FRENCH DOORS
The casement windows (they swing out) and french doors can be ripped from the house in a storm. Please close them in rain or wind or if you’re going out for the day.

We feel lucky to live in this beautiful area, and love to tell visitors about our favorite spots. We are very country! We have horses, heat our homes with wood from our property, and love to work on our land. We're raising a border collie puppy named Tullah.
