Bask in the sunny yard, take a dip in the swimming hole or go tubing in the creek, ski the peaks, walk to town, or just relax by the fire roasting marshmallows all while enjoying the peace and beauty of the Catskills at our lovely Phoenicia retreat.
We fell in love with Phoenicia after staying in a vacation rental just down the street from what we now call our home away from home. We hope you'll find it to be just as charming!
The family-friendly house has an open floor plan that flows from the living room to the kitchen and dining area. The two bedrooms are tastefully decorated with comfortable beds. The main bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second has a twin size daybed that converts into a king size by pulling out the trundle. There is one shared bathroom with a tub/shower. A queen size air mattress is also available for two additional guests.
Expect to see gorgeous mountain views from nearly every window in the house and hear the sounds of the Esopus Creek nestled just steps around the bend. Woodland Valley campground and its spectacular trail heads are but a few miles down the road. This really is a four season retreat.
There is an inflatable queen mattress available for stays with more than four guests. Please write to us with your needs prior to making the reservation and we'll do our best to accommodate your party.
Have a dog? Please ask before making your reservation.
The Trailways bus from NYC stops within walking distance of the house in the village. From NYC, 2-2.5 hours of easy driving will take you to your new home away from home!
We will not be in Phoenicia during your stay, but will make ourselves available for any needs that may arise. We also have someone in the neighborhood who cares for the property in our absence so please don't hesitate to contact us as needed.
Nearby you'll find some of the finest dining in the region - Peekamoose, Phoenicia Diner, Bear Cafe, and more. Hunter Mountain, Bellayre, and Plattekill ski areas are all short drives from the house. Phoenicia has shops, restaurants, hiking, and other recreation, and is located near several popular destinations for day trips and outdoor recreation.
The Trailways bus stops in town in front of the hardware store. It's walkable to and from the house.
