Leave your cares behind and enjoy the beautiful Catskill mountains as you relax in your “Stream side Sanctuary,” a newly renovated 2 bedroom house just outside of Phoenicia, located on the lovely Stony Clove Stream.
Winter is a great time to visit! We are close to ski centers -12 miles from Hunter Mountain, 15 from Belleayre and 23 from Windham. We also have three pair of snow shoes to use on the property or take to another spot.
If you’re not an outdoor person, you’ll enjoy relaxing in front of the cozy fireplace in the living room or visiting some of the shops in town or at the nearby Emerson complex, where you can also take an exercise class, get a massage or visit the world’s largest kaleidoscope!
The view from the property is wonderful year round, with the autumn colors being especially spectacular.
The newly renovated house has a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining room that looks out at trees and flowers from a bow window, living room with gas fireplace and large screen TV, modern bathroom, two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, one with a TV, air conditioning and heat throughout making it a cozy, comfortable retreat year round! The house has cable TV and wifi. A car is not necessary as the house is located just short of a mile form the bus station in Phoenicia. You can walk to town, eat in one of several restaurants, visit the quaint shops, go fly fishing, or tube the Esopus. If you’re feeling energetic, a walk of a little over a mile will bring you to the Tanbark Trail and/or the trail up Tremper Mountain, both very popular spots, or walk about 2 miles to the Phoenicia Diner for a hearty breakfast or lunch. If you do come by car, there are many sites and activities just a short drive away: Lakes, hiking trails, ski centers, concerts, shops, and /or other nearby towns to explore. Come and enjoy “your vacation home” without any of the work or responsibility!
My husband and I have a home on the property. If we are not traveling, we like to greet our guests, give a quick tour of the house, and answer any questions. Whether we are home or away we can always be reached but, we give our guests as much privacy as possible so that they can comfortably enjoy all of the property.
