Beautiful waterfront home on 4 acres with breathtaking views of the Esopus Creek, Broad Hollow Stream, and Mountains. Guests have always been in awe of the beauty of the setting. Only 1 mile from Phoenicia border-3 miles from Village. Secluded to be a great party house or romantic couples retreat, but not isolated as it is conveniently located on a private road off of Rt 28. All the comforts of home with a fully equipped kitchen, and cozy fireplace in the living room. Amenities also include cable tv, hi-speed wireless internet, and a washer/dryer. Each room has TV & DVD, or maybe you'll prefer listening to the rushing Esopus which can be heard from virtually every room in the house. The lawn is great for sports, running around, or having a campfire. The magnificent 60 foot deck was built for a party and has a section that is covered so that you can stay dry and take a nap outside listening to the rain gently dance on the tin roof. We have lowered our fall rates by 20 percent as reflected in the online price.

beautiful and well located
comfortable easy living
Charming place directly at the water
Loved our stay, nice place to explore the Catskills from here. Great stay for a few days with our children and grandson.
Very nice stay in a great location
We didn’t have great weather but did manage a day at Bellayre beach and an evening campfire. Woodstock and Kingston were easy to get to for rainy day activities along with plenty of nearby dining choices.
The creek is a huge draw for this house. The kitchen is well equipped. We had a great time! We needed more towels, however! One of the four bedrooms is windowless, and the basement futons were not appealing for adults. But the upstairs is nice.
Great house, great host
We stayed at the Getaway for the week of July 4th. The weather was very hot but the AC upstairs in the house kept us cool and comfortable. Mike was great to work with as a host. His housekeeper did a super job getting the place ready and showing us around when we got there. Esopus Creek was beautiful and a nice refreshing place to visit given the hot weather. The porch was a great place to hang out. The yard is huge, plenty of room for all sorts of outdoor games. We did not use the fire pit, it was that hot! All in all, a wonderful week in Allaben.
We had a wonderful time at Mike's Getaway! Ten of us came up for my 30th birthday, had a very nice campfire night and then spent our rainy night on the porch playing cards. The house was great and everyone was very happy with it. Thanks, Mike!
