Property Details

Updated: Apr 24, 2015
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

canine companion.

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.

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!

Perfect Getaway

The Waterfall House is perfect - the waterfall is great, changes daily, and so relaxing to watch. All your needs are anticipated and addressed, the accomodations are top notch. Very comfortable. We had a great girls' getaway, enjoying good food, wine and conversation.Took a trip to Woodstock and enjoyed the shops and local flavor. Just a great house, great time.

Land of the magical waterfalls

Don't look any further for a place to stay near Woodstock. This is it. But please don't book when I want to book. That's the danger of writing a good review, isn't it? The secret gets out. Discover for yourself why this home is so incredible. Owners are rock stars too.

Little jewel box on a waterfall

  • 5 of 5
We were happy to arrive to an adorable, warm house with a freshly shoveled walkway and a basket of goodies. The large picture windows throughout invited you to sit and enjoy the view with a cup of coffee and a good book. The house is filled with character and was thoughtfully and tastefully decorated with whimsical touches including a giant toothbrush, giant pencil, and giant ice cream cones, which both the kids and adults in our party loved. A fenced-in area allowed the kids to enjoy the snow and the quiet, dead end road was safe for a bit of exploring. Really loved our stay. Thanks, Bob & Babs! xo

I am at a lost for superlative adjectives for this house surrounded by amazingly beautiful grounds. The perfect place to leave your worries and or stress behind. You can choose to do nothing and stare at the falls and the ever changing light, or take advantage of the many nearby activities and sites.
Bob & Barbara were wonderful! Very informative and generous with information and recommendations. Trust them they won't steer you wrong.
