Set half a mile from the road on 19 acres of meadows and woodland, this very private 3-bedroom property is perfect for your Catskills getaway. With large pool, fire-pit, BBQ, trampoline and your own pond and creek. Great for families with young kids.

The space

Our home is perfect for entertaining a group both indoor and out and has ample space for kids to play, including a playroom on the first floor and a huge basement with a ping-pong table and home gym. The kitchen is open plan and looks out to both a formal dining room and a breakfast nook that overlooks the grounds. During the colder months we have a wonderful wood burning stove in the open lounge area which becomes the heart of the house in winter. Perfect for relaxing in front of after a long day of skiing or hiking! There is a great sound system for use in this room too. There is also a separate TV room with comfy couch, blu-ray player and movie collection. A home office is also available should you need to work during your stay.
The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and balcony that overlooks the pond. The guest room also has a queen sized bed. Then third room is our “kids room” and has two twin bunk beds that sleep 4 - these are suited to children. There are 3 bathrooms, each with a shower and the main bathroom on the first floor with a spa bath that also overlooks the pond. Wander the grounds down to the creek that runs through the woods, or take the boat out on the pond and check out the fish! The fire-pit is by the pond and has two big benches -perfect for smores and a glass of something. The property has a hill that is perfect for sledding on in the winter.

This house was everything we wanted and more! 2 parents and five teenagers were comfortably accommodated for a week with something for everyone. Guitar strumming by the stream, workout space for the athlete, an amazing collection of dvds, a lovely pool, Inviting porches for morning coffee and no shortage of family space for cooking, eating, board games, table tennis tournaments and bonfire by the pond. The house is clean, well stocked and instructions for use very clear. We had no reason to contact the host. The house is wonderfully located with access to Amazing food (Boitsons, Shindig, Tavola, Bun, and Arrowood Farm to name a few) and hiking (Mohonk preserve, Kaaterskill Falls...).our first AirBnB experience couldn't have been better!

A large group of us spent the 4th of July weekend at Murray’s and we all had an amazing time. This is a wonderful home in a beautiful location with all the amenities you could need. The porch, fire pit, pool and pond are great for groups. It’s the perfect escape from city living.

We rented this house for one week in July with our in-laws and two kids under 6. It's extremely well laid out and comfortable. The kitchen and eating areas are wonderful and flow seemlessly into the living space and on into a large and bright kids playroom stuffed with Legos and trucks. My 2.5 year old son would have happily spent the whole week in there. The house is utterly private with huge starry skies at night,a wraparound porch to sit and watch thunderstorms from. The pool is another great plus. The trampoline too. My kids were in heaven. The adults enjoyed exploring the local area, waterfall hikes, eateries and back roads. Murray was faultless in responding by text or email and all of his instructions were clear and straightforward. I'd love to see it in the Fall!

We recently stayed at this wonderful Stone Ridge home for a long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. Our entire family had the best time and couldn't have been more comfortable throughout our stay. The yard is beautiful. The swimming pool was definitely a high light! My two boys jumped all their energy out on the trampoline and basically collapsed every evening from a full day of outdoor playtime. It did not rain during our stay but if it had then I was thrilled to see all the fun toys that the boys had to entertain them in both the basement playroom and the main floor playroom- it was a lego wonderland. The beds are super comfy and the overall feel of the house could not have been more welcoming. I am honestly afraid to write too many more good things here because I secretly want this home to be available for all of our upstate vacations. But the right thing to do is tell everyone about this incredible home!
