Privacy and seclusion, without isolation. This updated country chalet is tucked out of the way and is virtually surrounded by state land and walking distance to the Esopus Creek. Only moments to shopping and Belleayre Mountain and Lake.


Put your skis in the mud room, eat a hearty meal at the big dining room table, and cuddle by the fireplace. Warmer months you’ll be outside on the open lawn areas, fire pit, kid’s swings, and the old railroad bridge to the river!


The bedrooms feel more like a comfy den and the dining room is what a family meal is all about. The house speaks of comfort and country charm.

It was a pleasure dealing with you. Your relaxed and friendly attitude made it so pleasant.

You will surely be hearing from me again.


The house was great. I felt very simpatico with the owners, too, even though I never met them.

The cooking equipment, the furniture, and even the music were all to my taste.

They even have the same flow-control faucet I have in my kitchen.

Please convey my sentiments to the owners.

It was also wonderful to be on a road with lots of hiking trails nearby. I made use of several.

I'm more in love with the Catskills than ever.


My only complaint is that I had to leave when my time was up.

Sometimes I wake up and think I'm still at Big Indian until I open my eyes.

Wishful thinking, I guess.

The Villa is awesome. In the middle of the wilderness. We had two families with small kids who love the huge Lawn and swing set. There's a great kitchen and grill for cooking. There's lots of great hiking close by. And Phoenicia is a cute town only 10 mins away.

The house is perfect for a quiet retreat. The three bedrooms are located on the second floor next to each other. The outside pit was great for a nice fire and the grill worked well. The kitchen is fully stocked with all sorts of pans. The location was decent. It was a 10 min drive to Phoenicia and a 30 min drive to Woodstock.

Beautiful house. Great location

We had a great stay. The house was perfect in size and location, cozy and warm. The extra notes around the house were helpful:) And, as usual, Pine Hollow Lodging provided us with all the appropriate information to make our stay easy and memorable. We look forward to booking in the future. Thanks!!

Everything about our stay at the Big Indian Villa was wonderful, beginning the rental process with Pine Hollow Lodging. Jason and Phyllis are terrific to work with. The house and location are perfect. Everything about our stay there was 5 Star. We cannot wait to go back there in the Summer.

Big Indian Villa was wonderful!  A perfect spot to rest after skiing!

Thanks Jason. Was a lovely stay. Very comfortable, homey, eclectic house. Was great to be that close to the slopes.

Such a beautiful, peaceful, and restful home!  Thank you for sharing!  We had a great time here. I LOVE the decorations and antiques!  We cannot wait to return to our new favorite spot!

Thank you for this gorgeous spot and for making it available.  I started drawing with green pastel pencils from the moment I got here. Had trouble putting them down until I started feeling anti-social.  I grew up in the Ohio Valley so this feels a little like home to me.

Thanks so much for helping us to have a relaxing and peaceful vacation

Great for weekend skiers! very easy and enjoyable process to rent through Pine Hollow. My friends and I had a really great time and loved the house. Everything worked great; no problems. We plan on keeping it on the list of places to stay up and there and will most likely use it again next season!
