Welcome to total and complete privacy in the Catskill Mountains! Our house is located down a long private drive and borders state-protected land. We are a designer and artist couple who live in NYC and love to share our beautiful home (which was just featured in NYmag!) with fellow airbnbers.
**Commonly Asked Questions**
- Can I check in early/check out late?
If no one is staying before or after your stay we allow an early check in and/or check out for a half day fee each. Otherwise, it is very important that you check out by 11:00 am so our caretaker can come and do their thing.
-Do you provide towels and sheets?
Yes we provide all towels and sheets.
-Do you have spices, oil and basic cooking supplies?
Our spices and oil are on an honor system, you can use some and replace. For food we encourage people to bring what they specifically need. We have all the cooking-wear provided (i.e. pots and pans etc)! We also encourage people to bring their own tupperwear for left-overs if needed.
-Can I stream movies using your internet?
It is very important that you do NOT stream movies using our internet. Because our internet is satellite, we have a limited amount each month and one movie will eat up an entire month's supply of internet and limit your own usage. We do provide dvd's as an alternative.
-Do I need 4wheel drive to get to your place?
During the warmer months 4 wheel drive is not necessary. We do recommend 4 wheel drive during the snow season. Our 300 yard driveway is plowed regularly but having the extra tread around the Catskills is always best during a snow.
-What happens if I break something?
Things happen and we totally understand. If something breaks please let us know so we have time to fix it before the next reservation. Send us a message and we can go from there.
-Are there nearby places for food/restaurants/activities?
For basic supplies there is a place called Tetta's a 5 min drive away. All other food/activities/etc are in the guide emailed to you or supplied at the house. Most everything in the Catskills is generally 20- 30ish min drive from one another.
-Can I bring more people than I have booked for during my reservation?
If you would like to add people on to your trip please shoot us a message and we will accommodate and add on. Strictly no more than 8 people are allowed to stay at our place. Should you decide to ignore this and bring more people anyway, we will find out and you will be charged accordingly.
-Can we bring our dog with us?
Yes, we do allow dogs (no cats or other animals sorry) with approval only. Because we do not charge an extra fee for dogs we ask that you take responsibility for your dog and pick up after your dog in the yard and keep them off furniture (beds included). Because we are located not within a major city there can be ticks, mosquitoes and that sort of thing. Please come prepared for your pet.
-Can I train bus or cab to your place?
There is a bus that goes from NYC to Woodstock. You can usually find it on a Trailways site or Greyhound site. One person in your group will need to have a car to pick up you or your party from the bus stop in Woodstock. Cabs will usually not travel over to our house.
-Where will you be?
We will be available by email or phone usually and if we are out of town we have a trusted caretaker nearby that is available in case of emergencies. We usually like to stay out of our guest's hair during your stay but are always happy to help.
-Do you allow weddings at your place?
For the right kind of small wedding we can accommodate, please send us a message for more info.

It's a wonderland!! And that's just the house. In the area there are great restaurants, wineries, hiking, swimming, skiing, apple picking, antiquing, farms and farmers markets. Our location makes for a great hub whilst exploring the Catskills and the Hudson Valley.

-load and run the dishwasher (our cleaning person can put them away)
-Place your garbage in the bins in the garage, any extra garbage please take with you.
