The Waterfall House


Home Description

Situated on the legendary Niobe Falls, the Waterfall House is a sunny and bright, charming Victorian house at the end of a quiet country lane. Unspoiled Palenville, home of Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle," is centrally located between Woodstock, Saugerties, Catskill and Hunter. 

Furnished with country antiques and original art, this vacation rental home has two bedrooms, each with its own full bath plus a den with twin bed convertible chairs. The full size sofa bed in the living room affords a glorious waterfall view. The separate dining room comfortably seats six. 

A fully equipped cook’s kitchen features granite counters and coffee nook with delightful river views. French doors in both the living room and den open to a romantic wrap-around porch right over the river with majestic mountain and waterfall views, the inspiration for the famed Hudson River School of Painters. 

Famed Woodstock, a 12 mile drive, is a haven for shops, galleries and restaurants. Hunter Mountain (10 miles), provides a wide range of winter and summer activities. Hunter is the first of the three major ski resorts, which also include Windham and Belleayre. The Catskill Mountain Foundation offers classes in the arts and many craft and culinary events. Nature lovers will appreciate the access to hiking and fishing.

In summer and fall, browse the outdoor flea market. Enjoy a concert at the historic Maverick or live theater at the Woodstock Playhouse. The Woodstock Film Festival, held each Autumn, is a movie lover's delight. The dates this year are Oct. 1 - 5.

The quaint Village of Saugerties (8 miles), is known for it's easy access to the Hudson River for boating and sailing and is home to H.I.T.S., a major equestrian center. Saugerties hosts many festivals and events such as the Garlic Festival, Sept. 27 and 28th, and the Jazz Festival. A colorful Farmer’s Market is open in season. 

Evenings are perfect for strolling to the Fernwood Restaurant for cocktails and dinner.
