About this listing
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.
Unique, artful, ROMANTIC... yet very family friendly green dwelling:
On four acres with a brook running through.
Paint the Night's Main House is one of two vacation rental cottages we are happy to share: 100 feet apart, each cottage has private parking and is separated by a 6 ft screening fence and each provides the ultimate in PEACE.
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!
