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.
