About the property

Western Catskill Mountain Retreat

Bluestone Ranch is a fully updated and modern craftsman style home located in the the secluded western Catskill Mountains. Our property is 65 acres of pristine fields and woodlands. We welcome you to seasonal harvests such as ramps, apples, blueberries, raspberries, and more.

East Branch is a quiet mountain community (why we love it). We suggest visiting the nearby towns of Roscoe and Livingston Manor on your way up and during your stay to visit Callicoon for an epic country drive.

Bluestone accents adorn the inside of the home, including two-full bluestone showers. Our kitchen is fully modern with a 5-burner gas stove and oven, dishwasher, full freezer and refrigerator. New for 2017, we have added an ice machine so you can keep your drinks cold with spring water ice.

The house has a ceiling fan in the main room and an attic fan for cooling. Our area is 10+ degrees cooler than the tri-state and breezy.

Outdoors is also adorned with giant bluestone slabs with several outdoor cooking options, including the famous "Bull." A bluestone firepit and bluestone seating invite you outdoors to share stories, makes s'mores, and count the endless stars at night. The "Cantina" is an outdoor hangout spot that was built by the original farmer with a stone hand-laid foundation. Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The Cantina is our favorite spot to play cards and hang out.

The main feature of the property is a fully developed mountain spring that we encourage guests to bottle and drink. Spring water is stocked in the house for your use as well.

Up the mountain are logging roads that we maintain for hiking, mountain biking, and off road activities like dirt bike riding. The main field has a grass-track designed by a professional dirt bike rider for mountain biking or dirt bike riding.

For bird lovers, we are blessed with a wetlands that attracts many kinds of fly-catchers, great blue herons, and birds of prey. A bald eagle frequents the ponds in search of quarry.

Besides a hot tub, we have a massage table and a portable infrared sauna available upon request. We use a wifi-hot spot in the house that accomodates up to 10 phones.

Fantactic updated home with just the right modern amenities to disconnect with friends or family

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 9 friends were in town for a wedding at Handsome Hollow. We loved our stay at Bluestone Ranch! Plenty of space and comfortable beds, modern amenities of a WiFi hotspot and updated kitchen, huge yard/trails and a hot tub off the master! It was the perfect place for us to disconnect and reconnect with each other for a weekend! Capped off the amazing stay with a bald eagle sighting off toward the back trails on Saturday before the wedding! This property is fantastic and Matt and Ashley made us feel comfortable with the welcome board and s’mores basket when we walked in!
