Expect a big dose of romance at magical Paint the Night Main House. By a mountain brook, enjoy serene reverie on the covered porch swing or make a campfire next to the brook and count stars and rabbits.

Surrounded by fields and mountains, tucked away in the Catskills we are PERFECT FOR ROMANCE...even if you arrive with a bunch of kids!
Wood stove, wrap-around front porch with swing, make a campfire on the edge of the brook, deer, rabbits, birds swooping over four acres of flower gardens and woods, and the Catskills to play in...a natural Disney World!

We stayed in the main house and it was perfect. The space is so charming, welcoming, and peaceful. We especially loved the outdoor space and the lovely view from the bath!! The master bedroom has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! Mighty was communicative, helpful, and friendly throughout the entire process! Thank you so much for a lovely stay. :)

Your home is a magical place! Pelin and I enjoyed every moment and will certainly be back. I’m torn between sharing with all my friends and family or keeping it our secret. It was a truly special weekend for us…. the energy felt amazing, the furniture is so comfortable, and it was clear from the moment we walked in the door how much you care. We will never forget this weekend and can’t wait to return!
