Comfy vacation home, beautiful inside and out
We immediately felt at home when we arrived (it was cold and snowing, so we were mostly indoors). The layout of the house is pleasing and practical. All of the open spaces (loft, parlor, dining room, kitchen and the den in the cellar) felt good to be in. There were often four people at a time working in the kitchen, sometimes five, nice flow. Beds are good, seating is comfortable, aesthetics are wonderful, wifi is... well... good for insulating oneself from the demands of work, shall we say, though the owner told us he is actively working at getting high-speed internet to his halcyon hideaway.
There was a slight problem that developed on the night of our first day (Christmas, btw); we called the owner (in NYC, btw), who in turn called and called until he got local service people to come out to fix the problem; he even called the next-door neighbor who came over to see that we were ok.
Finally, after we returned home, the owner called to say he'd found some stuff we'd left behind; I think he was calling from the post office to confirm he had the right mailing address. Very fair and responsible host and super easy to communicate with.
We plan on returning in warmer weather. This place is a well-tended gem in a beautiful locale.
Beautiful Property in Gorgeous Setting
Our family rented this property for five days in June. The Catskills are especially beautiful in the summer (and fall, and spring, and winter). As we drove up the hill and saw the house that first day, we knew we had made a good choice. There is a rolling lawn peppered with original modern sculptures, and flower beds all around the house, which is completely surrounded by mountain views. The house is comfortable, if a bit quirky, with plenty of room for our family of 8. The four kids all stayed in the basement, which is a recreation room with abundant sleeping sofas and beds. The adults spread out among the two bedrooms on the main floor and the spacious loft above. We spent most of our time outdoors on the wonderful deck, enjoying the beautiful views and watching the kids play in the yard and the woods. We cooked all of our dinners on the grills (there is a gas and charcoal grill, both of which we used nightly) and ate at the picnic table on the deck. The kitchen is well stocked, both with cooking utensils and spices. While Phoenicia, Big Indian, and Hunter are all relatively nearby, we chose to spend our days right there in West Kill. We took enjoyable hikes, of varying lengths and difficulties, in the nearby NYS forest lands every day. All in all, our five days in West Kill were just what the doctor ordered--plenty of sunshine, outdoors living and playing. Thanks to Bennett and Helle for sharing their mountain paradise with us.
