Bloomingburg Arts & Crafts, $185,000

362 shawanga lodge rd bloomingburg ny

We love the exterior of this 1950s arts & crafts/bungalow style cottage in Bloomingburg, about 4 miles east of Wurtsboro. The stone mixed with wood materials and those big picture windows looking out onto the deck really do it for us, not to mention that it comes with 3 acres of wooded land well-shielded from the neighbors (or so it would seem on GMAP). The interior didn’t excite us quite as much. It’s essentially a big room with a kitchen and dining room space as you walk in the front door, with a separate living room with a fire place. We could make it work. Other details include skylights and a koi pond.

Walton Farmhouse, $1,500/month

walton farmhouse rental

This c.1850 farmhouse up in Walton, Delaware County might be an economical choice for a summer getaway to the Catskills. During the peak summer season, the house, which is located on 7 acres, is only $1,500 a month ($500/week or $117/night, so it’s actually cheaper to rent by the week or month). After the peak season is over, the rent becomes even cheaper, dropping down to $700/month in the winter. It looks like a sweet place. Includes an antique kitchen, screened-in porch, pretty views, a clawfoot tub, and private deck. While the owner doesn’t provide specific info on the location of the house, we know it’s near Walton, which looks like a cute village that’s close to lots of outdoor activities, like hiking, fishing, horseback riding, and golf. The farmhouse accommodates max. 4 guests in 2 bedrooms. So far, the availability is wide-open for the summer.

Olivebridge Cottage w/Pool, $150/night

olivebridge rental

We were recently asked if we knew of any rentals in the Ulster County area large enough for a family, $3000-$6000/month, with a pool. Tall order! But, we found this cottage in Olivebridge for $150/night or $1,500/week, and behold: It has a pool. And it sleeps 6-8 over 3 bedrooms, which might be a little cozy if you’re planning on being a party of 8, but 6 should be okay. Love the green kitchen and the screened-in porch. We think this is a pretty good deal, and so do a lot of other people, apparently. Its availability is very limited, but if you’re looking for a few days away from it all in order to luxuriate in a pool and do some BBQing, this could be the place for you. It’s also pet-friendly with a fenced-in yard.

Stamford Contemporary, $199,900

2071 tower mtn rd stamford ny

Since we’re doing rentals all week, we decided to use our usual Tuesday RoTW spot to feature a property that we think could make a nice little home away from home. And up in Delaware County, you can get a whole lotta drama (as far as views are concerned) for less than $200,000 with this contemporary hillside cottage. With design elements inspired by Lloyd Wright, the cottage is a gem located on 2.5 acres near a gem of a village, Stamford. The living room and the sweeping views from it are almost worth the listing price alone. By the way, we noticed recently that Trulia has started posting GreatSchools.com district ratings on all of their posts, and the Stamford Central School district “exceeds standard.” Good to know.
