Description

Beautifully restored, extremely private, ca. 1850 farmhouse - John Burroughs' 'Old Home'. Unsurpassed views, hundreds of acres to explore, and many local family activities for all four seasons. The East Branch of the Delaware River flows through town; the Pepacton Reservoir is 15 minutes away.

Ski Plattekill is just over the mountain; Belleayre, Hunter, and Windham are within 45 minutes; Pakatakan Farmers Market; Roxbury Arts Group; and Cooperstown (National Baseball Hall of Fame - 1 hour away). Golf at Shepard Hills a stone's throw away, or at Hanah fifteen minutes away. Roscoe (fly fishing) is an hour away.

Skiing, golfing, hiking, fishing, hunting, and places of great interest are all close by. The John Burroughs Memorial State Historic Site (his burial place) is just up the road, adjacent to the farm, as is Woodchuck Lodge. Walk the land that inspired John Burroughs, and drink from the same spring that has supplied the house since it was built.

The Homestead has been completely updated and restored, and everything is brand new. The furnishings are all new (Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn), supplemented with a few vintage pieces. The house has a cook's kitchen/great room, with all new Bosch appliances, and a Tulikivi wood-burning stove (table seats 10).

Beautiful well appointed home!

The entire house is very tastefully decorated and is in a beautiful location. We enjoyed learning about who John Burroughs was. Excellent kitchen for entertaining.

Great mountain getaway for families

We had a lovely 2-night stay over the holidays with three families with kids. The house is fully renovated and well furnished and stocked with everything you could possibly need (pots, pans, toiletries, towels, games). The property was also really beautiful with great views. We didn’t get great weather for skiing but there were a few mountains very close by. We ended up spending most of the time at the house with a fire in the fireplace, playing board games and making meals in the lovely kitchen, which was perfect for us. Lastly, the owner was friendly and very responsive throughout the booking experience and our stay.

Beautiful house in a very secluded mountain

We just came back from JB's boyhood home. Great place. The house is very very comfortable. Everything works, beds are comfy, kitchen is very well equipped, 2 fireplaces, 2 big TVs with Direct TV, wifi works. Loved the location, as we were looking for a calm place away from the city noise. Went skiing to Plattekill which is just 15' away and is a great family friendly mountain. Nice supermarket in Margaretville 20' away. Will be back for sure. Highly recommendable!!
