About this listing
Secluded house on four acres of wilderness with all the modern amenities. Two bedrooms with an expansive deck, hot tub, fireplace and enclosed porch. Bordering on 30,000 acres of the Catskill Preserve, close to Vernooy Kill Falls and Lake Minnewaska
Ours is a secluded house on four acres of wooded land, off a private road about two hours from the George Washington Bridge. There are two neighbors, also weekenders, but otherwise it is you and the 30,000 acres of bordering National Park. We are also close to both Mohonk and Minnewaska, perfect for hiking, swimming and rock-climbing.
The house is eclectically furnished, we collect oddities, bizarre art, books, records, DVDs and taxidermy. We are both in creative industries and our tastes reflect as much. You won’t be bored.
The master bedroom downstairs is equipped with a queen bed and the upstairs loft holds a full-sized futon. Note that the upstairs loft is open to the main space, so only semi-private. Ample towels and bedding are provided.
Additionally, the house amenities include central heat, an outdoor grill, a stereo (with turntable, CD, mini-jack, USB), flat-screen television (with DVD player), a modern kitchen with dishwasher, coffee maker, blender, food processor, toaster, Soda Stream, utensils, spices, etc. And there is a washer and dryer in the basement.
WE DO NOT HAVE INTERNET OR A LANDLINE. This is a getaway and we prefer to keep it off the grid, so to speak. But our cell phone reception through AT&T works great.
WE DO NOT HAVE CURTAINS. As we are surrounded by woods, they are unnecessary.
