About Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras
'ThinkBig!' creator Bob Malkin and former Emmy award winning film editor, author and former professor Barbara Pokras met and married in 1992. After relocating to New York City in 1997, we discovered the Catskills and in a single weekend, bought our first house. We love the proximity to Manhattan, the beauty of the area and the access to nature. Bob loves to hike the mountain with our dog Lucy, and Barbara spends time gardening, writing for the Woodstock Film Festival, and finding little 'treasures' for The Waterfall House.
Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras purchased this House in 2006
Why Bob Malkin and Barbara Pokras chose Palenville
We never dreamed we'd be in the Vacation Rental business, but when we first saw The Waterfall House with its magnificent setting and old perennial gardens, we simply couldn't resist.

Stunning waterfall view
An amazing view from the home , it’s a relaxing place for a getaway. We went in October and enjoyed the gorgeous fall colors . Hiking is nearby , just down the road from the house as well as a beautiful park up the mountain a short drive away .
Lovely home by the stream
Beautiful setting amid trees, a porch facing lovely stream. A bit overpriced, but everyone enjoyed it.
Farm House/Water Fall
We enjoyed the sound of the water fall very much, swimming and bird watching and biking around the neighborhood.
Simply THE BEST Place for a Family Vacation in The Catskills
This lovely "waterfall house" was even better than we had expected!!! Seeing the photos of the location of the house next to (or above) the creek and waterfall(s) does not really convey how completely beautiful, relaxing, and wonderful this house is. You have to hear the peaceful sounds of the waterfall to understand the beauty. So, the location of the house can accurately be described as "perfect". The house itself is likewise totally wonderful. Plenty of space to sit inside and out; a very well-stocked kitchen; a great gas BBQ grill; comfy beds and spacious modern bathrooms. The house is beautifully decorated, the directions and check-in information were both correct and helpful.. We swan in the waterfall creek every day, and also explored the various hiking trails and cute towns in the area. I will definitely be back!
This place is gorgeous
My large family of 39 people rented a nearby VRBO that was said to sleep 32. However more people wanted to join so I searched for a second place. By shear luck I found this beauty and rented it. The sound of the falls from every room, the fantastic swimming hole, the beauty of the lily lined path leading to the falls, the wonderful wrap-around porch for evening chats, everything about it was perfect! I wish I could buy this place. Highly recommend.
The location of this property is amazing. It is an old home, but has been updated with all the modern conveniences, and is decorated with quaint touches. The owners obviously care about this home and the managers seem to do a very good job of caring for it. Our family of six enjoyed hiking in the mountain trails and just sitting on the porch looking at the waterfalls.
