Lilac Hill is nestled on a hillside, surrounded by 39 acres of private forest with jaw-dropping views. It’s a recently renovated antique lover’s dream. The driveway winds through the woods arriving at the enchanting green shuttered cottage, seemingly plucked out of the English countryside.
It hosts 8 guests in 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and you can Bring Fido.
The first thing you’ll notice when you enter the beautifully-appointed living room is the striking view of the Callicoon hills that is evident through the ten-foot sliding glass doors. There is plenty of comfortable seating, so you’ll live in this space, gathering around the fire in winter, grabbing a movie on the Smart TV, or hanging out and connecting with your fellow travelers. Just outside those sliding doors the patio is perfect for warmer weather dining and lounging.
The chef’s kitchen manages to keep with the cottage theme, but with a distinctly modern edge. The 6-burner Wolf range is supplemented by a wall oven and wall microwave, and the island with barstools is always a popular spot. The whole gang can gather around the incredible 1700’s antique English farm table. Note the inviting bay window and window seat overlooking that fab view.
Lilac Hill, located in the heart of the Catskills, in the hamlet of Callicoon Center, equidistant to Livingston Manor and Callicoon (15 mins). Conover Club is just down the road and under 5 minutes away. In Callicoon, grab a sandwich at Bà and Me, enjoy cider with a view at Seminary Hill, try some local beers at Catskill Provisions Distillery, or shop the county’s largest farmers market. Try tubing on the Delaware River, visit the alpacas at Buck Brook Alpacas, or explore the various hikes around the Catskills.
