The dining room at dusk was a magical place to be! The wildlife that emerged in the backyard and was visible out the huge windows provided us with great entertainment during dinner each night. Christa was a wonderful host, available to answer any questions and provided fantastic suggestions for hikes and other activities in the area. A perfect escape from the city.

We had such a wonderful stay! We were two couples, staying nine nights, and it was such a great mountain escape for us. The house is wonderful, clean and well-appointed, with plenty of space to spread out, and two very comfortable king-sized bedrooms plus two full baths. With so many seating areas (both indoors and outdoors, upstairs and downstairs), it was hard to make up our minds where to lounge when home! The kitchen is the most well-stocked of any Airbnb I've ever stayed in, and it has a dishwasher, which was a nice perk. The house is perfectly located for visiting Phoenicia, Tannersville, and Hunter, and with access to a stream on the lot across the road (which the owner also owns), the Esopus just down the way (where we watched the eclipse from the middle of the creek), yoga just down 214, and many, many hiking options. Christa was super-responsive. always getting back to me within a matter of hours, both before and during our stay. We loved this house, and are already missing country life. We'll definitely be back!

Lovely house located in the countryside very calm and peaceful. We were 5 adults and we all had plenty of room in the house and comfortable beds. Christa and Wayne were very helpful in advice and solving problems (the few problems we had). Highly recommended for a peaceful vacation

this place is secluded enough if you want quiet space, but close enough to get to restaurants and grocery stores. We came for a long weekend to do some motorcycle rides through the area and it worked out perfect. I actually didn't realize there was no TV when I booked but thankfully we had cards so everything was good. Great communication with owner and very responsive when I asked for a few fans, she brought them over quickly.

Response from Christa:
Thank you Christy. I will check the listing to see if it mentions "no TV". Christa and I have been so long without a TV in the house we forget that our friends and others take it for granted.

Christa's home is stunning and spacious, in gorgeous surroundings with beautiful mountain views and along the Esopus, and impeccably clean and decorated. Great wifi. She was super communicative and offered great local recommendations for hikes, restaurants, etc. Would love to stay in the winter time next.

Nestled in a foothill, the setting is absolutely stunning: the non-through street makes it exceptionally quiet, except for the sound of the running creek and early morning birdsong. The home is full of sunlight, large wooden decks and is thoughtfully furnished. It has two large bedrooms, a pull out couch that sleeps two in the main living room and a larger sleeper sofa in the upper living room that can easily sleep two. Christ and Wayne had clearly considered every single detail such as extra towels, soap and shampoo and get extra credit for stocking all these supplies with eco-friendly products. We also appreciated the recommendations for local food, things to do and hiking trails. Christa and Wayne were gracious, responsive and accommodative. They allowed us to check in early although we didn't make it there until 5 PM in the afternoon and we are definitely looking forward to our next stay there. This is among the highest rated AirBnB homes we have stayed in. This beautiful home is a unique experience and a great value for money - I would recommend it as a rare gem in the Catskills.

My husband Wayne, has lived in Phoenicia since 2001. As a sometimes reclusive software developer ( who had been living in Germany and Connecticut) he was drawn to the property by it's seclusion, tranquility and authentic "Catskill" home which was built in 1925. I joined him here (moving from Chicago) in 2006. I am an actor and freelance producer and I get a kick out of taking my conference calls while working in my garden. I have also started my own cottage industry Goats Hill Studio, creating beautiful aprons, totes, pillows and other sewn objects from vintage and reclaimed materials. I enjoyed being able to decorate the cottage with many custom made curtains, pillows and cushions.

Both Wayne and I love to cook....Wayne, the scientist, is always perfecting his home made hot sauces and pickles. And I find nothing more fun then throwing a dinner party for friends. I enjoy being a host, which is why Airbnb is such a good fit. I enjoy creating a comfortable vacation spot and being here to assist my guests. I hope you decide to stay with us.
