Remote/traveling workers/students/long-term stays most welcome.

The space
A 2-4 person barrel sauna, a sun room, a stone game room, a pond, its shy part-time heron visitor, chorus of bullfrogs, and the forest song that enfolds it. Come explore your hobbies or work remotely on a peaceful million-dollar view retreat on a Catskills hilltop. Bring your work, books, tech (free WiFi!), art supplies, housebroken pets, and prepare to get mindful.

You will love this space for its top-of-the-world panoramic view of the Catskill Mountains. Space to roam, meditate, hammock, destress in a barrel sauna, and picnic in a very scenic 2+ acre yard. Sit by the pond listening to birdsong, and watch the sun set and the stars shimmer from the deck. Inside, you’ll unwind near a fireplace in our inviting sun room, or play ping pong and billiards in the stone room.
