The space

Our top floor guest rooms consist of a living area with futon bed/couch, antique table and chairs, rocker, refrigerator and toaster, electric kettle and French Press coffee maker... plus a covered porch facing the Catskill Mountains and their sunsets (where smoking is allowed). There's a separate bedroom with queen bed, closets, bathroom with shower, hall and library of guidebooks, novels, poetry and DVDs/PS2 for families and cineastes. We provide breakfast materials and guide pages for our region (husband's a local journalist; wife runs local arts organizations). Wifi, television, DVD player, great art, off street parking... two blocks from Hudson River, two blocks from Main Street with old-fashioned movie house & restaurants, three blocks from Thomas Cole House. Near Amtrak (in Hudson) and Trailways stop (Catskill); cabs available. Perfect for families wanting a family home (we travel a lot, too...)

Guest access

Half of third floor, shared with Fawn's artist studio and Paul's study.

Interaction with guests

Someone is usually around, and if not always available by phone.

The neighbourhood

Catskill is the home town of Rip Van Winkle, Nellie Bly and contemporary artist Kiki Smith. It's a key Hudson River town with intact Main Street, burgeoning arts and restaurant scene, great views, and central for day trips to Hudson, Woodstock, Saugerties, Albany, Catskills and Berkshires. Walkable and scenic. Quaint yet with a cutting edge new flavor about it.

Getting around

Across the river from an Amtrak station, accessible by cab. Parking on premises.

House Rules

No smoking indoors and we expect you to not be too loud after 9 PM (we have a school age child).

Welcoming, warm hosts. Good space and access to outdoors. Great location to downtown Catskill. Hidden Gem.

Nice and cozy third floor that includes bedroom, private bath, and cozy sitting room with couch, tv, and fridge. Paul's wealth of info about the surrounding area, mixed with his strong sense of humor, makes for a good vibe. Easy walk to town, but use the sidewalks! Comfortable bed, sounds of train whistles punctuating the night.

Paul made us feel right at home and gave us our space. Its a great space, nice and warm in the winter and right around the corner from downtown Catskill. We really enjoyed staying here and we will be coming back next year.

We had a wonderful stay at Paul's place (in Maya's quarters) in their gorgeous Hudson Valley locale, only wish we had a chance to meet our hosts in person to share our appreciation for their region and their hospitality. Thank you, Maya for sharing your lovely home with us on our visit!

An awesome place. We immediately felt at home. I like trying new spots, but I think if I go back to the area, I will want to stay here again, it was that perfect!! A cozy, 2 br apt on the top floor with a beautiful view overlooking the valley. I appreciated that the apt had character and personality instead of the oft sterile aesthetics I see at other abodes. This is the experience I look for on air bnb. A home away from home with intriguing hosts I would have loved to get to know more!

Paul's house is really beautiful, everything was all beautifully set up when we arrived. Paul is a really nice host. We'd love to stay at his place again when we go to Catskill next time. Thank you Paul! Hope your kittens are having a lot of fun with each other!

I am an editor of local newspapers, a writer, and father of a seven year old second grade boy. My wife, Fawn, is an artist and arts administrator who also teaches at SVA in New York. We have a second floor renter who teaches communications at a nearby college. We are very connected with our community but also travel a great deal... taking a U.S. and overseas trip each year. We cook a great deal, host dinners and guests, and try and enjoy our lives to the fullest while continuing to educate ourselves (as all late parents of adopted children should).
