We think Bovina is the 'gem of the Catskills' and this catbird seat above Brushland Eating House is just the place to take it in. Smack dab in the middle of main street, you've access to the towns bounty - farms, mountains & delicious fare.
If bucolic is what you’re after, Bovina is your haven. Our little hamlet is connected to the Catskills by miles of winding country roads that lead past grazing cattle, ski mountains (only 40 min from Belleayre and an hour from Plattekille), wildflower fields and century-old barns. Just about two and half hours Northwest of the Five Boroughs you could be here by lunchtime - which in these parts, consists of a cherry soda, trout spread and a dip in the lake.
Spacious yet cozy, the apartment has welcomed writers, lovebirds, next-door neighbors and wedding guests alike. Lofted ceilings sport rustic wooden beams and let all of that mountain breeze in through big wooden windows. A generously-sized kitchen boasts butcher block countertops and ample cabinet space, but don’t worry if your knife skills are a little rusty - just give a whistle and we’ll save you a seat downstairs in the dining room. And whether you’ve come alone on sabbatical or travel in a pack, two large, thoughtfully appointed bedrooms and a bath & a half provide comfortable sleeping and bathing quarters. Design books, classic novels, board games and a radio stock the shelves for lazy afternoon or post-hike relaxing.
My girlfriend Sara and I fell in love with Bovina using AirBnB and we now live/work here full time, so be forewarned.. the Bovina "bug" is a real thing.
Hope to see you soon!
