Winter is one of the most enchanting times to visit the Catskill Mountains. Whether your idea of a perfect getaway is waking up in a cozy cabin surrounded by majestic mountain peaks or hitting the ski slopes for a day of action-packed fun in the snow, the region’s beauty and bounty offers something for everyone to enjoy.

If you’re looking for a Catskills hideaway that boasts quick access to top-notch ski mountains, farm-to-table restaurants, craft breweries and distilleries, quaint retail shops, and music and arts venues, look no further than bucolic Delaware County.

Just a two-and-a-half-hour drive from New York City, the western Catskills county is home to family-friendly ski and snowboarding destination Plattekill Mountain (and is a quick jaunt to Belleayre Ski Center in nearby Ulster County), as well as the charming villages of Margaretville, Andes, and Delhi.

Already deep in daydreams of sipping cocoa next to a wood stove? We’ve rounded up three gorgeous houses available to rent now from locally-based R&R Vacation Rentals that are waiting for your next Catskills winter getaway.
