Vacation Rental Description
The Guest House, a Catskills bed and breakfast, is the ultimate getaway -- only 2 hours from Manhattan! Come and stay in the Northwestern Catskill Mountains where Andrea and Shaun will welcome you to the rustic beauty of their 40-acre estate. They have the best private fly-fishing on the Willowemoc River and exceptional hiking trails in the Catskills Forest Preserve. Within 30 minutes of this bed and breakfast in upstate New York, you will find 7 fabulous golf courses, open and covered tennis courts, riding stables, biking trails, skiing and skating. Fine dining, cozy but delicious country restaurants and antique stores are just minutes away. For music lovers, the spectacular Bethel Woods Cultural Center, built on the site of “ Woodstock” is half an hour away. For more intimate but truly excellent music, The Shandelee Music Festival in July and August, is around the corner.
In the spring, wild flowers and fresh green leaves will make you forget the gray cities. In the summer, which is not as hot and humid as the metropolis, the grounds are simply magnificent. In the fall, the most glorious colors of the changing leaves will enchant you. In the winter, the sparkling white snow will be irresistible to go cross-country skiing or snow shoeing in peace and quiet.
A first-class masseuse can be arranged to heal and relax you in the privacy of your Cottage. She is an expert at Deep Swedish massage, Body Realignment and Reflexology, which will take care of your aches and pains.
To satisfy the needs of guests who prefer total privacy in luxurious surroundings, we offer six individual cottages. Although they look somewhat similar from the outside and have the same amenities, the ethnic decor is quite different in each and reflects their names. There are king and queen size beds, Jacuzzi baths, with plush towels, bathrobes and hairdryers, fireplaces, cooking facilities, air-conditioning and cable TV (some flat screen) in every cottage, and refrigerators are stocked with all your needs for a full breakfast. You will have daily maid service. Enjoy natural spring water and pure country air. Well-behaved pets are welcome, and there are enclosed areas where they can run without a leash.
Our Catskills lodging consists of six individual cottages. So much more than simple rental cabins, our luxurious, private cottages offer all of the amenities of a bed and breakfast in a beautiful and relaxing rustic setting. Nearby you can enjoy a variety of wonderful activities, including fishing on our own private stretch of the Willowemoc River, cross-country and downhill skiing, golfing, hiking, biking, antique shopping and more, making The Guest House the perfect location for your next New York vacation or weekend getaway.
