About James & Gaby Robb
We are a young family who split our time between Brooklyn and The Catskills. We fell in love with the Stahl Farm after a long search because it is a true source of relaxation and adventure. Gaby works in Design and James owns a wood flooring company. This is where we come to unwind and recharge our batteries. We are constantly building, cooking, growing and enjoying all this farm has to give.
James & Gaby Robb purchased this House in 2017
Why James & Gaby Robb chose Margaretville
The Catskills are a true 4 season destination and the farm is a true microcosm of everything there is to do in this special corner of the state. From tobogganing to swimming, bonfires to barbecue, antiques to skiing, we can do it all either at the farm or a short drive away. James grew up on a vegetable farm and wanted to be able to share such experiences with his own family. Gaby grew up in Guatemala and is drawn to the mountainous landscape and rushing water that reminds her of home. We have spent the last year renovating the house to make it our home while honoring the care and hard work of the Stahl family . Where ever we go people remark on how the Stahl family touched their lives as neighbors and role models. We have big shoes to fill as stewards of this special place, and are humbled and excited by the challenge.
What makes this House unique
Where else can you walk up the hill to watch spectacular sunrises and sweeping vistas or paddle out to a floating dock to stair up at the sky or play "poo sticks" along a rushing stream. This is a home where history, nature and cosy comfort can be found everywhere you look. Be it sitting around a campfire toasting marshmallows, picking apples in the brisk autumn air or taking a misty dawn walk down the silent red earth road. These are all experiences we've been lucky enough to have while at the farm, and why it is such a unique place.

Perfect multi-family vacation house!
nice and in the middle of quiet
Bucolic cozy retreat
Beautiful location. Well-designed home. We had plans to explore the area but ended up mostly enjoying the fun on the property. We traveled with my two daughters and another friend. Between the twinkle lights in the backyard, the fire pit, swimming in the pond and the trampoline, everyone had a blast. The house is beautifully decorated and has the feeling and comfort of a real home. Gaby and James are excellent hosts. We were so touched that they left us a bottle of wine! All in all an excellent holiday weekend.
Charming farmhouse, friendly owners
Charming Catskills Farmhouse was clean, roomy, and very accommodating for our family ski weekend. The owners were very responsive and pleasant. The house is in a quiet and beautiful location, off the beaten path. We really enjoyed our stay!
Wonderful Stay at the Bill Stahl Farm
