RoTW: Boiceville Farmhouse, $150/night

boiceville farmhouse

We started off in search of $100 a night or less rentals around the Catskills, which we found plenty of. But many were of the smallish cabin variety (not all; just many), and we wondered what we could get for just a little more per night. Turns out, you can get a roomy 3 bed c.1840 farmhouse in Boiceville, Ulster County. What’s nice about this place is that it’s on 5 private acres, and it’s only a 2 minute walk from the bus stop at Bread Alone. It’s also close to the Esopus creek and some swimming holes. Boiceville is up near the northwestern corner of the Ashokan Reservoir, 10 minutes from Phoenicia, 20 minutes from Woodstock, and 25 minutes from Kingston. Oh, and the text under the photos came directly from the Airbnb.com listing.

Woodstock Hilltop Cottage, $285,000

6 mt guardian rd woodstock ny

New to the listings, this 3 bed/2 bath cottage in Woodstock has got some nice views of the treetops and beyond from big screened in porch. Inside, there’s an easy, open flow and a cheerful brightness that we find appealing. Cottage includes a separate studio with running water, so there’s guest house potential there. Or, don’t share and keep it as your studio. Nothing wrong with that. The cottage and studio are situated on 2.6 acres of land in the hamlet of Bearsville, about 10 minutes north of the village of Woodstock.

Five-Figure Friday: Kerhonkson Camping Cabin, $39,000

67 cherry lane kerhonkson ny

Even at such a low price, it still seems a little much for a 140-square foot one room off-grid cabin. Then again, it’s sitting pretty on 2.5 acres, so it’s fairly comparable to other lot/land listings with nothing on them in Kerhonkson. Alas, this is the only photo available, so you’ll just have to use your rich imagination to picture the inside. Located about 6.5 miles north of Kerhonkson, the cabin is certainly private and secluded. But if you’re looking for something in the five-figure range with a teensy bit more space, it seems you’re out of luck. There’s always this cute place for $125,000.

Compound in Kerhonkson, $1.49 million

3 dunn farm rd kerhonkson ny

We haven’t done the Friday Fancy thing in a while. Turns out, most people prefer five-figures over seven. Go figure! When we came across this compound in Kerhonkson, however, we couldn’t pass up writing about it. Yes, that’s a heavy price tag. But from the looks of things, the property includes at least three houses that we can see, the gem being the circa-1800 stone Colonial manor house shown above. It’s so pristine,we’re not sure we could let our children inside, which is fine, because they can go swim in the in-ground pool all summer long. Lot size is 12.5 acres of rolling meadows, ponds, and forest. This is the closest we’ve come to country living perfection in quite a while.
