This Catskills farmhouse has been gently updated and retains its original features and charm. Beautiful old apple trees embrace the side yard giving the cottage its name. Privacy and serenity are the essences of Applewood Cottage. Situated high in the hills it catches every breeze and remains cool in the hottest weather.
The cottage is two stories with a large open airy living space downstairs - essentially two large rooms. The relaxing area has a large comfortable couch easy to curl up in and read a book, contemplate the day or just take a nap on. For chilly nights there is a lovely laid stone fireplace with conveniently placed wood, which could be the highlight of a romantic evening. Sip a glass of wine in front of the crackling fire.
The dining area seats 2-4 but can easily seat more. It is made up of an old farm house table and two church pews. There are other chairs which can be used for table seating.
The piano room, although part of the open floor plan, has a feeling of privacy. It has a baby grand piano and a comfortable day bed. If you play the piano please do and hold a sing along with friends or family.
Upstairs are two light-filled cheery bedrooms. Both bedrooms have double beds. From the windows you can see far across the valley below. The bathroom is situated on the second floor and has the original claw foot tub - which is divine for bubble baths - and a pedestal sink.
The kitchen is well appointed having enough pots, pans and bakeware to prepare a feast fit for royalty. For your use there is a professional juicer, ice-cream maker, cookbooks, microwave, coffee maker and mixers. The kitchen has an electric stove and miles of counter space. The refrigerator is full size. There is no dishwasher.
The back porch is screened-in and comfortable. Have dinner on the porch one night, or enjoy an early cup of coffee while listening to the birds greet the day. There is a table and chairs for your dining pleasure. Just outside of the porch is a barbecue area with a grill and additional table and seating.
Cell service is great in this location; always four bars. There is internet service, WiFi and a Roku player so you can stream movies, check your email and post your new adventures on social media.
For your use is a flat screen TV and DVD player. Feel free to bring your favorite DVDs or explore our library of movies, should you decide to have a movie night.
Three cars can be comfortably parked in the driveway - with the front door only a few steps away making unloading and loading of cars and groceries very easy.

STARGAZING, in our dark night sky - far from distant city lights - can be a life-changing experience. Enjoy the telescope for viewing stars up close, bring blankets right outside to catch shooting stars, and lie in awe as you look straight up at a unobstructed view of our universe. You may see the Milky Way or catch the Perseid meteor shower in mid-August - AMAZING!

A Native of the area who once moved away but came back because I had left my heart behind. I am a very hands on and approachable host. I am just a phone call, text, email or drive away. I am here to help. I am more then happy to suggest restaurants, shopping, destinations and fun things to do based on guest individual taste and preferences. I want every guest to love this area as much as I do.
