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.

Local Booze Alert: Delaware Phoenix Distillery, Walton

delaware phoenix distillery

We have a hard and fast rule here at Upstater HQ: If a town we’re exploring has a distillery, we have to talk about it. And upstate New York has some seriously good local hooch. If you’re not buying the homegrown stuff, you don’t know what you’re missing.

The Delaware Phoenix Distillery, located in Walton in Delaware County, hand-crafts award-winning bourbons, rye whiskey, and corn whiskey that can be found in a variety of specialty shops not only here in upstate New York, but Manhattan and Brooklyn, too. Absinthe fans need not feel left out, for Delaware Phoenix proprietress Cheryl Lins also makes two types of absinthe. Considered their “traditional” absinthe, Walton Waters utilizes seasoned wormwood harvested from Virginia and New York and a blend of herbs that include anise, lemon balm, fennel, and lemon thyme. Meadow of Love absinthe is their more floral offering, and it’s made with the same herbs as Walton Waters in different portions, with some violet throw in for good measure.

Five-Figure Friday: Walton Village House on a Half-Acre, $99,000

67 liberty street walton ny

We are really digging the houses in Walton this week, and this 1,600-square-foot cutie definitely sealed the deal for us. The location is good, too: Walking distance to lots in the village, and the half-acre lot size is bigger than your standard residential lot. Not much work to be done here, although we would consider sprucing up the kitchen a bit, and we suspect there are hard wood floors under that drag grey area rug in the living room. The second floor carpeting would go, too. Otherwise, when can we move in?

Walton English Stone Manor, $499,000

32861 state hwy 10 walton ny

Price-wise, there’s not much for sale in Walton that constitutes “luxury”, but this English-style mini-estate sure makes us want to throw on some jodhpurs and go for a ride before teatime. It has some of the bells and whistles estate living: Riding trails, tennis courts, stables, patios, and even a fishing stream. But the price is fairly reasonable for 50+ acres, a guest house, and gardens. While we love the style of the house, there are some things about the interior that excite us less, like the floral wallpaper and carpeting in a variety of colors, depending on the room. We do, however, enjoy the French doors, fireplaces, kitchen, and staircase.
