We are so happy to keep sharing our home with the amazing Airbnb community who have treated it with so much love. A perfect place for families, a group of friends, single travelers, or digital nomads. Secluded and private, but not at all remote. The property is set in its own corner of a bucolic valley with expansive fields. A thoroughly modern house that never lets you forget its farm heritage.

MAIN HOUSE: 3 bedrooms (2 queen beds, 3 twin beds, 1 futon) 1.5 bathrooms
GUEST BARN (extra fee): 1 bedroom (1 queen bed), 1 full bathroom
This home -- on a unique 10-acre property stretching straight back through a valley across a field of lightly rolling hills, with three classic outbuildings -- is our escape from the city. We hope that when we’re not here, it can be an escape for you too!
Relax on the covered porch, cook an amazing meal and enjoy it on the huge deck, and stargaze on a clear night. Fall asleep to the sound of the nearby creek and wake up to the chirping birds.
Please note that while our page says we can accommodate up to 10 guests, that includes both the house and the guest barn ($100/night low season, $150/night high season, $50 cleaning fee). The main house accommodates 8 people max. There are two bedrooms with queen Tuft & Needle mattresses, and a third bedroom with three single beds in a sleeping loft (or you can push two of the beds together for a couple), in the sunroom there is a comfortable twin futon. The guest barn has a queen size bed and two sofas.
SPRING & SUMMER
Take long strolls around the property, or through the surrounding hills. The grass in our fields is left wild, with abundant milkweed that attracts monarch butterflies. Take in the incredible sunsets during magic hour with a glass of wine. Nearby the house, you can swim in Crystal Lake, go tubing or kayaking down the Delaware River or hike the abundant trails within a 35min drive leading to spectacular views. At night, all year long, enjoy the incredible quiet and darkness of the country, and starry nights like you wouldn’t believe.
FALL & WINTER
Soak in the beautiful colors of the fall foliage. Light a fire, indoors or out. The beautiful Wittus stove is enough to heat the downstairs once you get it hot. Make some hot chocolate and drink it around a bonfire at night in our fire pit. Through huge picture windows all over the house, watch deer grazing at dawn and dusk throughout the yard, catch a sight of the bald eagles that fly over our valley, or step outside of the Scandinavian wood fire sauna into a pristine blanket of snow.
We’re right in the middle of 4 quaint towns.
Callicoon (5min drive): First and foremost there’s the all-year farmer’s market, but you can also catch a movie, have a tennis game at Villa Roma, enjoy tapas at a wine bar, and check out the main strip with antique shops, an art gallery, a cheese shop and a few delicious, comfortable restaurants. And a well-stocked grocery store, too!
