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 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.
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.
The house is non-smoking and some of our guests have allergies so, cat and dog owners, sorry - we can't allow pets.
We put a lot of effort into ensuring that the home is pristine for every visit so we do expect our guests to take good care of the house and only registered guests are allowed on the property. Parties are not permitted.
Sarah and Sam both grew up in England but spend much of their time in the USA. Sarah studied French Literature at college and Sam Fine Art. Sam is a software entrepreneur and Sarah works in education. They currently live in London where they have two children at university and two in school.
