Description from owner

Cathedral ceiling, balcony, wood stove, deck, dsl, wifi, center kitchen island, appliances: from washer/dryer to coffee grinder, dishwasher to Saki cups. Trails run through my properties past organic plantings of fruit, nut trees and hundreds of plantings that support the abundant wildlife (from bluebirds to eagles), 2 streams, rock garden in the rock ledges behind the cabin. Adjoins thousands of acres of the 20 mile long reservoir, on which I have a boat available to you for fishing, & is available for kayaking, canoeing, & removable keel sailboats-must register craft with DEP & have them cleaned & receive a sticker (my boat is all ready registered).

OR, just settle in on the deck and watch fireflies dance under a star studded sky, or relax on the couch in front of the wood stove with a good book and beverage of choice. A calm comfortable mountain retreat to recharge & reconnect. I have a collection of games, puzzles, & a small selections of 50 or so movies.

My other house is the nearest dwelling--a hundred yards away and tucked behind spruce trees. You are welcome to walk those trails, as well as the trails on my land catty corner to the cabin-walk past my barn like shed & down to my mountain stream below the hemlocks, always cool and dreamy there.

About the area

The photo on my listing of the bench overlooking the reservoir is on the new Shavertown Trail, a mile from my property-as the crow flies. The put in for kayaks and canoes is there as well. The Palmer Hill trail and the Rail Trail are two other new trails in Andes, plus there's the Murphy Hill State Forest on the top of my mountain. You lookout upon the mountains of the forever wild Catskill Park, yet only 12 minutes from the delightful village of Andes with shops, restaurants & galleries. Several lakes for swimming, kayaking, & canoeing, plus a pool in the Village. Kayaks & canoes available for rental at Al's Sporting Goods in Downsville, they will also pick you up if you take a days paddle down the East Branch of the Delaware, which exits the reservoir at that point. The Beaverkill across the way is a world class fly fishing stream, the reservoir is noted for its brown trout. Two golf course, many theater & music events in the area including West Kortright Center, Roxbury Arts Group, Franklin Stage, Open Eye Theatre. Day trip Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum & Fenimore Cooper Museum, Glimmer Glass Opera, or to White Lake for the museum at the original Woodstock Festival site which also has concerts. Buy locally grown produce, dairy, eggs, and meat at local farmers markets or directly from the farms. A number of small breweries and distilleries have opened in the region. Take great hikes starting at the front door or throughout the Catskill Park which begins on the other side of the reservoir offering trails of varying degrees of difficulty. The quiet winding road that runs below my properties is a wonderful walk or run, and is a favorite for cyclists--it is 14 miles from my cabin to the end of the road in Downsville and you will only pass 7 homes along the way. 5 ski resorts in the general area as well snow tubing. Bring snowshoes & crampons for winter hiking the Catskill trails. Excellent cross country skiing on the Delhi Golf Course, and the Palmer Hill & Rail Trail in Andes.
