The bright, sunny living room (27×20) has wide planked wood floors, period brass fans, and a decorative fireplace. Across the street from the Arlington is Circle W Market, a general store focused on local and organic foods that dates back to 1908. Palenville is also home to the Rip Van Winkle Country Club and a family-owned restaurant called the Fernwood. The peaceful town of Palenville, New York was founded as the first Art Colony in America by Asher B. Durand. The historic Otis Railway, a funicular that carried people up to the Catskill Mountain House, is nearby. Kaaterskill Creek—an inspiration for many famous painters and paintings—runs through the backyard of the property. In season, a refreshing afternoon can be spent swimming in the cool, clean water of the stream.

Charming home
We went for a 3 day weekend and everything was exactly as described (no surprises). The owner was gracious and showed us around when she gave us the keys. The home was clean and well stocked with all the things you would find in your own home. It was a good location for traveling around. They have wi-fi so I would suggest bringing a laptop or iPad if you like to watch tv before bed (since there is NO tv in the house anywhere). Although I found having no tv forced us to spend even more family time together rather than separating to our own rooms before bed, it was a welcomed change. We would definitely go back.

Great location, great place, great host
The Arlington was an incredibly pleasant surprise for our party of six co-workers for a weekend team building trip. Brian drove down from NYC to hand over the keys and show us the place and drove right back! The Arlington has been very tastefully and painstakingly restored by him (he grew up in the house). We found the kitchen (where we cooked breakfast ) fully equipped. There is also a store/deli across the street, and many walking trails around. We are planning a trip in the spring and will not consider anything else in the area to stay for a weekend trip.
