Perks for the Parents

This cozy cottage in the small town of Palenville, in the foothills of the Catskills, is steps from streams, woodland and hiking paths along the water’s edge. It is a great destination for a family getaway, with mountains, waterfalls and arts colonies to visit nearby. In the town itself, there are 30 waterfalls to discover. The owner used to have a 1970s pop art store, and the house is peppered with kitsch and quirky items. The claw foot tub in the bathroom overlooks the stream. The house is bright and airy, with room for all.

Why Kids Love it

The outdoor area is wonderful for kids: there is a lawn and a path for easy hiking and exploring along the water’s edge. The family can sit and enjoy s'mores around the outdoor fire pit after a barbecue by the stream. The stream side is a wonderful classroom for kids of all ages - watch frogs jump, birds fly and fish swim. The cottage is accessible for strollers; the block offers a wonderful walk past magical waterfalls and moss, nature at its finest.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. Well mannered dogs are welcome. Baby gates can be provided for steps if needed. The cottage is on a stream: as with any body of water, parental supervision is required at all times. The garden is well maintained and is on a slope down to a stream. There is a back yard where it is safe to play.

About the Location

The residence is on the Kaaterskill Creek in Palenville, New York State. The first arts colony in the USA was created in this area of beautiful mountains and falling water. Palenville is nicknamed ‘the village of falling water’ for its 30 waterfalls and is a serene and wildlife-focused place to visit. It is 2 hours from NYC by car and 12 miles to Woodstock NY; 10 minutes to Saugerties and close to Hudson and Catskill. Amtrak is available as well as bus service to Woodstock NY, though car rental is recommended. The cottage is on a back road 8 miles to H.I.T.S for horse shows, all while avoiding main street traffic.

Accommodation Details

This cottage has an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area downstairs, along with 2 bedrooms (1 with 1 twin bed and a trundle bed and the other with a queen size bed). The lounge has a sofa bed sleeping 1-2. The house has one bathroom with walk-in shower and claw foot bath overlooking the stream. There is a large deck with outdoor grill overlooking the stream and gardens.

Style Notes

Nature-focused - and kitsch. The cottage makes the most of its extraordinary setting with glass sliding doors and a large deck with river views, and includes some unique pieces sourced from 1970s vintage shops, including an oversized stiletto chair and various painted tin signs. A chef’s kitchen makes travel easy for a family. The bathrooms blend of old and new creates a delightful bathroom with a claw foot tub with woodlands and stream views.

Palenville, Catskills

Falling water and enchanting woods

Nestled in the foothills of the Catskills amid 30 waterfalls, Palenville is a magical mountain village of swimming holes, mossy boulders and enchanting woodlands - as immortalized by painters of the Hudson River School in the 19th century. Take riverside walks, visit the nearby towns of Woodstock and Saugerties and enjoy the fresh air, invigorating water and unique atmosphere.
