Unplug. Step back in time. Nestled under an apple tree, early 1800’s home, renovated while retaining its individual personality. Come write, read, play in the dirt. A wonderful haven for single moms, mature creative individuals, and young professionals alike. Solitude and serenity without isolation. 5 min hike to the Delaware river and kayaking. Less than 15 min to Callicoon, and Narrowsburg, concerts at Bethel Woods and the Woodstock museum. 2 hours scenic drive from NYC. All are welcome here.
Absolutely delightful. Uncluttered. Make it your second home!
European bathroom with handheld shower.
No Internet, TV or wifi in the house.
Large flatscreen monitor with DVD player and small selection of movies.
Fragrance free linens and harsh chemicals avoided.
Tall people be aware! Stair at midway platform requires head bending for those over 5'10" and bathtub ceiling is slanted, standing room only for those under 5' 8"!!!
Though the guest house is internet free, you are welcome to sit with your tea or coffee and have occasional access to wifi on my front porch.
You can take over the garden, weed, or plant your favorite vegetables or flowers. Garden is spacious and a bit unwieldy at times.
Lots of activities for young people from building paths or teepees in the woods, climbing in the "tree" fort, toddler slide, and sandbox. All located next to the garden, behind my house.
Fire pit and out door dining area in shared side lawn (when firewatch permits).
Interaction with guests
I live next door and will usually be able to greet you upon arrival.
Other things to note
Lovely scenic after dinner 1 mile stroll through the woods on 'paved' dirt road for those wanting nature but less adventurous.
Tea, coffee, half a dozen local fresh eggs (in season) greet you on arrival.
Your own private apple tree lures the deer for intimate viewing. Blueberry, blackberry, raspberry bushes on property, as well as peach and pear tree... available in season.
Very kid friendly as well as gardener friendly.
- All floors are newly renovated. Please take your shoes off before entering.

- This house accommodates maximum 5 people.
This house is set up with those who are chemically sensitive, and the environment in mind. I use no perfumed laundry soap or harsh chemicals in cleaning. I prefer if you use dishtowels rather than the paper towels that are provided. Separation of recycling, compost and garbage is requested.
- Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper. All tissues and feminine products must go into bathroom trash.
- Please do not go to bed with fresh oils on your body. Aftersun or bug repellent oils can be hard to remove from sheets, leaving stains.
