About this listing

Come and sample the best of the Catskills, near Roxbury, with a London twist. Sarah and Sam have brought a hint of their hometown over the pond to this beautiful Victorian house two and a half hours from New York City.

The space

The London House is situated in the charming hamlet of Halcottsville, near Roxbury (an ideal base for weddings at the nearby Roxbury Barn and Stone Tavern). There are four spacious bedrooms (3 queen, one full-size) and two bathrooms. You'll have plenty of space to relax with three sitting rooms and a generous kitchen/dining room.

There is a large garden with a stream that kids love to play in and outdoor dining adjacent, creating a tranquil spot for a meal, perhaps from the bbq, or just relaxing with a cocktail.

Guest access

Arrive to bedrooms made up with Egyptian cotton linens from The White Company London, with towels to match (bath, hand and face towels provided for every guest). Enjoy bathrooms with locally-made soaps, shampoos and conditioners which we encourage you to take home at the end of your stay. When you’re hungry, hang out and cook in the large, well-equipped kitchen, complete with a professional gas stove.

In the evening, make use of the array of board games or settle down with a book from the diverse collection or a movie on the latest Samsung HD Smart TV and Blueray DVD player. The kitchen is equipped with a four-speaker sound system with iPod connection and wireless internet is also provided.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive, you'll receive a welcome pack that includes locally-made bread, butter and milk as well as a new dish cloth, sponge and detergent for the dishwasher and washing machine. We also provide locally-made hand soap, body wash and bubble bath plus a bottle of shampoo and conditioner which you are welcome to take home with you at the end of your stay. There is also PG Tips tea from England and enough coffee to get your trip started.

Other things to note

There is an outdoor gas grill for BBQ.

We stayed a weekend at the London House in June 2017. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is located in a lovely little hamlet, on a quite road, close to Roxbury wedding venues. It is a beautiful old house, nicely decorated, with all the charm of the Catskills. There is a fairly large backyard with a deck to enjoy summer evenings, bordered by a little creek. The house sleeps comfortably up to 4 couples (4 bedrooms with double beds) and has a large enough kitchen to accommodate 8 guests, which is perfect for a multi-family vacation/weekend away. The only downside is that there is only one bathroom with a walk-in shower, the other bathroom having an antic tub (beautiful, but not quite practical). With that many guests, it can get complicated in the morning. Otherwise, beautiful house, great location, good for families with children.

Sarah and Sam were beyond wonderful hosts, and made sure that everything was perfect for my family's stay during my wedding weekend. I even got ready for my wedding here! It's a lovely space and highly recommend to anyone!

Sarah and Sam's house was great for our group's stay. It is clean, well-furnished, and a less than 15 minute drive to Stone Tavern Farm where we attended our friend's wedding. The house is walkable to a lake which has local kayak and bike rentals. I would highly recommend their house for a stay in the Catskills area!

The London House is a great place for exploring the Catskills. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen was a great space--large table for gathering/eating, great sound system for listening to music. We skied at Belleayre and found it to be very convenient for our purposes. Communication between Sarah/Sam and Carrie, the property manager, could not have been easier. The place was also immaculate! Thank you.

Response from Sarah And Sam:
Hi Tilla, I'm glad you had a great time. Thanks for the note about the pods. I've checked with the housekeeper about this as pods for both dishwasher and washing machine are supposed to be left out for every guest. It may be that the previous guests left some different ones behind but these should have been removed if that's the case, so definitely good to know. Thanks! All the best, Sam
