Why did you decide to look for a home in the Catskills?
We loved the community feel of the region, especially all the young and adventurous people we were meeting on weekend visits. It felt affordable and accessible to us as a young couple. We also love the mountains and the easy drive up here.
How did you end up here?
We found a property we couldn’t say no to! We grew up coming upstate and we’re excited to get back, especially with our dog who loves being outside!
How long have you owned your home here?
Since December 2014.
How do you make weekending work for you?
We have a car making the Friday night exodus easy enough. We have friends come visit and have made tons of new friends too! We love being able to get away every weekend, especially with our dog.
What do you love about the Catskills?
The open air, the endless views and the laid-back vibe. It is calm, fun and anything but fussy!
What are your favorite things to do here?
Explore the towns, sit by the fire, cook/ grill and discover swimming holes. We love entertaining and having guests over for dinner and BBQs.
Name one thing you love about your house or property?
We love the decor and large living spaces. Now that it’s summer, we also LOVE our front porch!
What advice would you give to people who are beginning to look for real estate in the Catskills?Find a geographic area that works for you- close enough to places you’ll frequent and that feels like a retreat. We can’t stress how nice it is to feel like we’re in touch with the upstate community with access to the amazing small businesses other people are starting. It feels great to support them and be a part of the experience
