Description of the Margaretville vacation home rental
Take a stroll or a paddle around the lake, shoot 16 holes of golf, go on a scenic train ride, take in a vintage baseball game, or just hang out with a cup of cappuccino and a good book and gaze out at the stream. Maybe you'll even catch a glimpse of the hummingbird!

Perfect for a couple or just best friends, this charming brookside house will soothe your nerves. The babble of the brook outside the master bedroom will lull you to sleep and the garden plantings will lift your spirits. Also great as an artist's retreat. A well-mannered cat or dog is welcome.

3 bedrooms (sleeps 4), 1 bath, fully equipped kitchen, cappuccino/espresso maker, washer/dryer, cable. Full set of comfortable garden dining furniture, hammock.

Note that front porch is a glassed-in porch with a window and a door that open to the outside. Dining area outside is on grass, not paved. Also note that the 100-year-old claw-foot bathtub is worn and stained inside but is scrubbed clean for each guest. I have ordered a new liner to be installed in July. There is peeling paint in the upstairs hallway that would require thousands of dollars to renovate, so on my wish list for now. This is not a living area -- you just pass through it.

Wonderful getaway!

January 5, 2016

This house is amazing! If you're looking for quite and secluded place, this place is for you. From the very first second you may see, that owners are smart and intelligent persons. I was so impressed when I've noticed a bookshelf with lots of books including French dictionary and Pascal in French, gardening guidelines etc.. The view from the window in living room is just heart touching: mountain river with small waterfalls! We spent our New Year eve and few more days at this place and I would say, that it was amazing! We had a chance to go to Windham ski resort, so if you are into skiing you would be really pleased. You will never regret if you'll pick up this place. Good luck!

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Anastasiya, and thank you for taking such good care of the place. Liz

Otter House

October 22, 2015

House was cozy and perfect for our weekend getaway. The property was private and quiet, and the surrounding area was just beautiful. We went on a few walks, went down by the lake, truly enjoyed the scenery with all the colors of the leaves changing. The stream that runs behind the house might be the best part, the sound of the water is so peaceful and sitting outside you can't ask for a more relaxing, quiet atmosphere. Truly looking forward to coming back next year, Liz is a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much, Mark. It was a pleasure having you as well. You're welcome back any time!

"Cozy Getaway"

October 14, 2015

My husband and I, along with our labrador, spent 3 nights at this cozy home in the Catskills. It was just what we expected. The sound of the creek in the back was so peaceful. I enjoyed walking down there each morning with my dog. A little tricky to get down there but it was do able and each day a little easier. Elizabeth has some property that has a beautiful view. We were not sure how to get there, so I emailed her and she promptly responded with great directions. It is worth the drive, I like to walk (and it would be a bit of a walk) so if I had more time I would have walked there with my dog. The yard at the house was very nice, large and private, so we made a fire around the fire pit and made some s'mores. Something I have not done in years. The house had plenty of amenities for cooking, though we went out to eat. I really enjoy cappuccino and there was a machine there to make them. I would have one each morning sitting in the living room with the door open, listening to the sound of the creek and enjoying my hot cappuccino. The house was clean and neat, nice hot shower and large master bed room. The bed was a little small, but we knew that it was a double bed, so it was no surprise. As a matter of fact the explanation of the home and its ammenites were exactly as it is stated in the description. We really enjoyed this get away and would definitely stay at this home again.

Owner's reply:

So glad Cecelia and her husband and their dog enjoyed the house and yard!
