Description of the Barryville vacation home rental
Our summer home, Birch Hill, is located 100 miles NW of NYC. This large four bedroom colonial is fully furnished and turn-key ready with a bluestone fireplace, big eat-in kitchen, dining room, family room and one and a half baths. A front porch faces west toward spectacular sunsets over the lake. This well-maintained home sits on 2 grassy acres amid perennial flower gardens overlooking beautiful Highland Lake. Our sandy beach area is a 5 minute walk down the hill. A tennis court is a 3 minute walk. We are within 15 to 30 minutes drive to antique stores, farmer's markets, Delaware River recreation and the new Bethel Woods Center for the Arts located on the site of the Woodstock Music Festival.

Inside, the house is very roomy, at ease and comfortable. Besides the dining room, large kitchen and living room with a beautiful blue stone fireplace, there is a double-sized family room with picture window views over the lake. The kitchen is well equipped with new stove and fridge. There is no dishwasher.

The house sits on the grounds of a former camp. There is an openness to the area and few other houses around. The house is fully furnished with hardwood floors and the kind of interesting details that one finds only in older homes. On the south side are pine trees and maples where you can set up a hammock. We keep some outdoor furniture there including a charcoal grill and a large wooden table for outdoor dining. The tennis court is a stone's throw from the house,hidden by a line of pines.

Area Information
The large porch looks west toward sunsets over spring-fed Highland Lake. The front yard has a curving walkway surrounded by a perennial flower garden. Beyond the front yard is the road that runs around Highland Lake and the view down a grassy hill to the lake. Our sandy beach area is a 5 minute walk away. Behind the house is the backyard--a large mowed lawn that runs uphill to a pine forest.

There are places to hike right near the house. Deer, wild turkeys, bunnies, pheasants and a variety of birds can be easily spotted. We also have two visiting hummingbirds and a number of "tenants" in the bird houses on the porch.

Perfect family getaway

November 16, 2010

Enjoyed a week at this home at Highland Lake. It was the perfect setting for our extended family of 11, with the bedrooms and living areas being very comfortably furnished and lovingly decorated. The outdoor living spaces including the large front porch, hammock and outdoor dining table were ideal for enjoying the summer weather. We were able to bring our boat and launch it just down the road, and the waterfront access for swimming and boating was just a 5-minute walk from the house. The flower gardens and rock walls on the property were gorgeous, and the level backyard allowed for many games of bocci. Our group included 3 young children, their parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents, and there was a lot of comfortable space for all.
