House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps
The legendary Niobe Waterfalls is the setting for this
charming 2 bedroom 2 bath Victorian home at the end of
a quiet country lane. Our private den sleeps two with
clever and comfortable twin bed "sleeper chairs." Most rooms afford a
spectacular waterfall view. A
romantic, wrap around veranda runs along the river and
is the perfect place for morning coffee or tea
(supplied, of course, along with a variety of
wholesome breakfast items). Your well mannered dog is
always welcome; we provide bowls and bed for your
An updated, fully equipped cook's kitchen provides
opportunities to cook with friends, or stroll over to
the Fernwood Restaurant for cocktails and dinner.
Our Waterfall Vacation Home is ideally located between
Woodstock(12 miles), Saugerties(8 miles), Catskill(10
miles) and Hunter Mountain (for winter sports, 10
miles) in the sleepy hamlet of Palenville, the setting
for Washington Irving's story of Rip Van Winkle. The
beauty of this area serves as the inspiration for the
Hudson River School of Painting.
Horse lovers, take note! We are convenient to
H.I.T.S. for summertime equestrian events.
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home.
The house is clean and comfortable and decorated so beautifully. There are so many great books to read and movies to watch. And then, of course, there is the main attraction, which is the falls. We had so much fun hopping from rock to rock, or just sitting and meditating. Our dog Conrad is a little timid around water, so we didn't know what kind of reaction he would have. But he loved it! By the last day, he was hopping on the rocks too. (Maybe next time, he'll dare to go into the river!)
We are already talking about renting again in May!
Thank you again and again!
