I came across this stunning Floating Farmhouses available to rent via HomeAway.
This 5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is roomy enough for a family getaway or couples weekend and just two hours from New York City in Eldred, NY. It sleeps 9 people and is loaded with amenities like a fireplace, a grill, wireless internet and even a wood-fired pizza oven.
The closest airports are EWR (Newark, NJ), SWF (Stewart International, NY), HPN (Westchester International, NY).
The house sits near a creek, giving it the illusion it’s floating on water.
The interior and views are just as stunning as the exterior.
All of this and more can be yours for ~$875 per night (2 night minimum).
If you’re not familiar with Eldred NY there’s lots to do nearby like wine tasting, apple picking, golfing, hiking, skiing, tubing and more.
You can also visit the historic hamlet of Narrowsburg, NY at the heart of the Catskills. This pituresque little town, overlooks the Delaware River and provides visitors with the opportunity to shop for antiques, visit art galleries, browse unique boutiques and dine al fresco.
Swimming, canoeing and sunbathing are also options nearby at Skinner’s Falls. The house is also close to Lake Superior State Park, which provides visitors a swimming area, sand beach, picnic space, grills, rowboats and paddle boat rentals.
For the music lover, the Bethel Woods Center for the Performing Arts, is a 15-minute drive.
This magical home is a option anytime of the year and the large windows will make the views of Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer easy to enjoy.
