A cute retreat in the Catskills
Last year, I spent a long weekend in Livingston Manor, NY in the Catskills and quickly fell in love with it’s small town vibes, swimming holes, rolling hills and one of my favorite area restaurants The Arnold House. It’s certainly not a place to be seen, and it’s certainly not a place to cram in a bunch of activities, although there’s plenty of outdoor fun and breweries nearby. It’s the type of place you visit to spend time with friends and family and take it slow for awhile.
Earlier this summer, I was invited back to Livingston Manor to stay in this cute and relaxed rental home called The Hill House. It’s situated on a quiet 12 acres, and tucked back in the woods away from any main roads, and there’s only one or two neighbors nearby. It even has it’s own koi pond right off the back deck, and a fresh spring running through the woods behind the house!
The house has three bedrooms and is set up comfortably for a small family (the owner has two small children) or a small group of friends, plus it comes fully equipped with all the important things like WIFI, a big back porch, a grill and a canoe for the pond. And rates start around $175/night so it’s super affordable, especially if you’re sharing with friends.
