A car is not necessary as the house is located just short of a mile form the bus station in Phoenicia. You can walk to town, eat in one of several restaurants, visit the quaint shops, go fly fishing, or tube the Esopus. If you’re feeling energetic, a walk of a little over a mile will bring you to the Tanbark Trail and/or the trail up Tremper Mountain, both very popular spots, or walk about 2 miles to the Phoenicia Diner for a hearty breakfast or lunch. The Rail Explorers is a new attraction in town that offers a fun adventure on the tracks by the stream. The Ashokan Rail Trail is open year round and has incredible views. In winter, you can enjoy skiing, snowmobiling or snowshoeing. We are close to Hunter, Belleayre, and Windham ski centers. Ski all day and come back and relax by the beautiful fire place. We also have a great stream side fire pit (propane) available for use in April through November. If you’re not an outdoor person, visit the nearby Emerson complex, where you can explore the shops, take an exercise class, get a massage or visit the world’s largest kaleidoscope! Come and enjoy “your vacation home” without any of the work or responsibility! My husband and I have a home on the property. If we are not traveling, we like to greet our guests, give a quick tour of the house, and answer any questions. Whether we are home or away we can always be reached but, we give our guests as much privacy as possible so that they can comfortably enjoy all of the property.More

This was one of the best trips my friends and I have ever been on. The house was more than big enough to house the five of us, and Veronica was SUPER accommodating even before we arrived! She gave us a fantastic bakery to visit which we again visited on the day we left, and made sure that we knew we could ask her if we had any questions about anything! We also tried the fire pit which was gorgeous and easy to set up. AND THE STREAM! This was the highlight of our trip. We spent the entire day hanging around the super spacious backyard and sitting in the stream. It was an amazing experience to get away from our normal city life and just sit in nature for the whole day. I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone who is trying to get away from life and just enjoy nature for a while. I would definitely love to come back!

A truly outstanding rental in every way. Newly renovated and super clean. Equipped so very thoughtfully to meet every need, from laundry soap to full kitchen gear to toys to comfortable beds. Great location with back lawn right on a stream with forested hills beyond. We loved the Adirondack chairs, large table and deck, recliners, and quiet. The owners are very nice, next door and quick to respond to questions while fully respecting privacy. In fact we would have enjoyed more time with Veronica and John. The house is close to many Catskills hiking trails, waterfalls, Hunter Mountain, and the fun restaurants of Woodstock.

We have visited 2 years in a row now for the first week in November, and we plan for many more. The house is very cozy, and the outdoor firepit on the river is awesome. Hospitality is great as well. We took a day trip to Woodstock (20-30 minute drive) and the town had a bunch of nice places - restaurants, wine shop, coffee shop, antique shops, bookstore, etc.....We highly recommend booking a stay 👍🏼👍🏼

Absolutely GORGEOUS setting... so relaxing and tranquil. Adorable, very updated, super clean, and cozy little house with gorgeous views of the mountains, BEAUTIFULLY decorated backyard, fire-pit, and mesmerizing stream 🙌🏼😍... Owners, Veronica and Jon, are SO welcoming and are there right away if you need something... yet, give COMPLETE privacy! They are absolutely amazing hosts! Great restaurants (in walking distance or just a minute drive away)! Stunning scenery and mountain-views (great for walks or driving around/sight-seeing). This was the ideal weekend getaway for my husband and I for our 2nd wedding anniversary! Veronica and Jon were even sweet enough to leave a bottle of champagne for us in the fridge to celebrate and enjoy! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and sooo look forward to coming back! ♥️

Sanctuary by the Stream is in fact as described and could not have been more perfect for small families or two couples. The owners have lovingly created & maintained a modern oasis a short distance from the center of town in a semi-private & secure location, on a lovely landscaped property that backs up to a rushing stream. Veronica and her husband were helpful and generously thoughtful and great neighbors. We hope to return in the fall or winter to enjoy the solitude of the Catskills.

We had a great time at Sanctuary by the Stream. The town of Phoenicia is a charming little hamlet with just the right mix of convenience and scenery. This home is clean, comfortable, and has a beautiful fire bit set right in front of a flowing stream. It was wonderful to sit by the fire and listen to the water rush by, while taking in the hills in the background. Our hosts were friendly and gracious as well - we would definitely stay there again!

Hey everyone. We were met by a wonderful host (who just happens to live next door) Veronica who was very helpful and made herself available if we ever needed anything. The house was brand new with a great kitchen. The fire pit on the year round stream was perfect. Can't wait to make it back in the fall

My girlfriend and I rented the house for the 1st weekend of November. The fall weather was great, and the house was everything we anticipated it would be from the pictures. Newly rennovated and modern, yet cozy inside. Backyard and firepit LITERALLY on the river. Cooked some steaks on the backyard grill. Nice fireplace in the living room as well. Very clean. Walking distance to the town for restaurants, shops, gas station, and more. Wish we had more time there, but we hope to be back in the future!
