Located just a short drive north of NYC, nestled between Phonecia and Woodstock is a little cottage waiting to be discovered by you and your guests. Many have asked if this is a stand alone home, or part of another house on the property. You get this entire private oasis to yourself and your guests plus the 4 acres that come along with it for you to enjoy!
The Reservoir House is a historic Shokan property originally constructed in 1882 in the nearby Esopus Valley. Then, in 1905, one of the greatest engineering projects to date--the construction of New York City's oldest and deepest reservoir, the Ashokan--would displace the 12 towns in the valley. The Reservoir House was one of a handful of properties that were pulled out of the valley by teams of horses to establish new communities, each scratch in their foundations a reminder of their journey.
