Perks for the Parents

An idyllic luxury retreat in the Catskills with a private heated pool, 5 acres of landscaped gardens and a basement hang-out for kids. It sleeps 6. At the end of a private road, you’ll reach this peaceful farmhouse that’s ideal for family vacations. It boasts a gorgeous pool, bluestone patio, screened-in porch, barn, greenhouse and vegetable gardens, as well as renovated contemporary interiors. Here you’ll find everything you need for a family stay: there’s plenty of indoor entertainment for children, the grounds are fully fenced for kids to run around and explore, and it’s easy to supervise older children playing outdoors from the comfort of the screened in porch.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has tons of toys, books and board games, as well as indoor and outdoor activities for kids of all ages. They’ll find plenty of pool games and floats for the summer and the pool is heated from May to September, weather permitting. There is a full-sized soccer goal outside for aspiring soccer stars to practice, as well as lots of recreational space in the living room and newly-finished basement bunk room with a game table for indoor play. For babies and toddlers, hosts can provide a Pack n' Play, a high chair, baby food maker and a rocking chair.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights, but ideally a week or more. Bookings are based on 6 people, each additional guest will be $100/night. Safety notes: the property is gated and fully fenced. The house is child-proofed but there is no baby gate for the stairs upstairs or down to the basement. Pool has a safety fence and an electric cover. The hosts have a lot of high-end, designer and custom furniture, so they ask that you are careful with it during your stay and treat it as you would your own home. There is no garage but there is parking on the driveway - car rental is essential. The house is on a gravel private road, so in winter, a vehicle with 4 wheel drive is recommended, as it can get icy. The barn, greenhouse and basement gym will generally be locked during the rental, but the hosts may be able to accommodate specific requests for additional use. Sorry - no pets or parties.

About the Location

The house is located in Kerhonkson, a great little Catskills town. It’s around 2 hours northwest of New York City by car. Close to the Gunks (for rock climbing), great hiking including Minnawaska State Park, the local hangout Ravenwood (a cafe/farm/showcase for local artists) as well as cool breweries like Rough Cut, Arrowood Farms and Westwind Orchards. You can visit local farms with farm stands like Damn Good Honey and Saunderskill Farms and find fun kids activities like apple picking, hay rides, pumpkin picking and a petting zoo at Kelder Farms. You’ll find upscale farm-to-table dining and community activities at Inness Hotel and Resort, Hasbrook House and Starlight Motel nearby. It’s also close to skiing at Bellayre, Hunter and Windham in winter and within easy reach of Accord, New Paltz and Ellenville.

Style Notes

Modern farmhouse. This is a modern stylish home where every detail is considered. The hosts have chosen to keep the style bright, modern and airy, with lots of windows to allow light to flood in. Most of the art in the home has been curated from a selection of work by local artists, including furniture makers, wood workers, ceramists, sculptors, and multimedia artists who live in the area, as well as a few pieces from the host’s travels to Cuba, Eastern Europe, Turkey Nepal, Tibet and South Africa. We love the striking contemporary four-poster bed in the primary bedroom, the wide spacious hallway and those charming traditional exterior window shutters.

We have 2 little boys - ages 9 and 6. We split our time between the Financial District in NYC and the Catskills, but we love to travel. We have recently visited Mexico, Greece, Italy and Anguilla with the kids.
