Enjoy a break close to nature—and/or work from home—at this newly renovated country home in the Catskills with easy access to great hiking, skiing, and sightseeing.

Flooded in natural light & featuring 13-foot cathedral ceilings, the great room opens up to a sunny deck with comfy seating and a firepit keeping you warm and toasty even on colder days. There's another firepit in the backyard+fitness area in the basement. The cottage has strong WiFi, two desks, and a printer.

The newly remodeled kitchen features an induction range with Air Fry (offering the best of both worlds electric/gas), dishwasher, and microwave. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a meal including French press, coffee maker, toaster, waffle maker, and Vitamix blender. We offer our guests coffee, tea, and basic spices.

Our sofa is big and super comfy - perfect for cozy movie nights. The smart TV is logged in to Netflix and Hulu but you can, of course, log in to your own streaming service as well. If you want to play content from another device we have HDMI cables. The living/dining room also features Bluetooth Crosley speakers.

The bedrooms feature a king (primary) and queen bed respectively, both with Allswell 's highly rated hybrid mattress (memory foam and innerspring coils), roomy closets, as well as laptop-friendly workspaces. The windows face the wooded backyard. The primary bedroom also has an en-suite full bathroom.

Both bathrooms have been completely remodeled with natural-colored Italian tiles, light wood, and greenery for a thoroughly modern aesthetic. They feature floating vanities and wide rainfall showerheads, as well as hand-held showers. Our bathrooms are stocked with award-winning organic Puracy shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

The large, sunny 300+ square foot deck features a Solo Stove Bonfire, gas BBQ, sofa, two loungers, and a dining table. This is the perfect spot to enjoy your meals, sip your coffee or cocktail, read a book, relax, sunbathe, or watch the many birds and deer that frequent the area. The Solo Stove will keep you warm and toasty even on colder days.

The private backyard faces a nice wooded area. Bring out the loungers and get your tan on, or gather around the fire pit for a fire-side meal, drink, or s'mores.

There is a washer/dryer and work-out area in the basement (only accessible from the outside of the house). The gym features a sandbag kit, pull-up bar, resistance bands, skip rope, foam rollers, and speakers.

The cottage is work-from-home/remote-learning friendly with fast Wi-Fi, desks in both bedrooms, and a wireless printer. The bar counter in the dining/living room is the perfect height if you prefer a standing desk.

Wi-Fi is fast and reliable. Cell phones work great with wi-fi assisted calling but cell service in this area is generally poor. At the house, Verizon is the only service (that we know of) that works okay. Other networks may or may not work at all. We strongly suggest activating Wi-Fi calling on your phone.

We have a private well and the water is safe to drink and tastes great. We also provide our guests with a water filter pitcher. Please note that the water sometimes smells of sulfur, which is naturally occurring and perfectly safe to drink.

Please note that the house is situated in the back of a half-acre lot and we have neighbors on both sides of the house. The right side neighbors' house is completely hidden behind trees, but the left side neighbors' house is partly visible from the cottage and deck. The backyard is private.

Getting around

The easiest way to reach our place is by car. We recommend taking NY State Route 97 from Port Jervis - it is an incredibly beautiful road nestled high up in the Catskill mountains along the Delaware River.

To get to our place via public transit from the New York City area, you can take New Jersey Transit to Port Jervis, NY or a bus to Milford, PA or Monticello, NY, and get a car service from there. All three locations are about 30 minutes from the cottage.

Hi! We’re Melinda and Matilda, your hosts. We fell in love with the Upper Delaware region after spending time there this spring because of the pandemic. In June 2020, we closed on this cottage and then spent all summer renovating and decorating. We’re so excited to now share our country home and we hope you will enjoy it and the beautiful Western Catskills area as much as we do.

A little about us: we have a six-year-old, we're both Swedes, one of us is a former professional athlete and Olympian, the other does PR for Sweden in the U.S., we live in Brooklyn, NY, and we treasure cozy days at home as much as spending time in nature. We’re interested in interior design and always try to find time to go antiquing. We love to explore the Catskills and are excited to share our tips with you. Welcome to our place in the country!
