Whimsical Maidstone Lodge in Ulster County on the Market for $1.5M

Situated on 131 acres in Phoenicia, NY, Maidstone Lodge is a stone Craftsman dream property with three residences…

This week on Upstater, we’ve been featuring five-figure and fixer-upper homes. So, we’re switching things up today and going toward the north end of the price spectrum with this fabulous Catskills lodge. Note that it’s been meticulously-cared-for since its construction in 1902.

The 4,800-square-foot interior boasts the look of a rustic, old-fashioned lodge with wood paneling, stained/leaded glass, and stonework throughout. Build a roaring fire in one of six native stone fireplaces…

As usual, the devil is in the details, and this house has a multitude of cool details around every corner…

The main house includes four bedrooms, one of which is the impressive master suite with in-room soaking tub next to a double stone fireplace. Now that’s a bedroom…

…and, here’s the pièce de résistance: A 1,300-square-foot loft with cathedral ceilings and skylights. We gotta say, this home’s bath/shower game is on point.

Both guest houses on the property are privately-situated, and there’s a site for a fourth house, which can be built on a previous structure’s stone foundation. Ever thought about what you would do with a turn-of-the-century brick icehouse with a copper roof? Now’s your chance to find out.

The mountainous surroundings offer views a-plenty, close to some of our favorite Catskill Mountain-based areas, like Phoenicia hamlet and Emerson Spa (world’s biggest kaleidoscope, y’all!), in addition to activities skiing at Belleayre, hiking in the Catskill Park high peaks, fishing, hunting, antiquing, tubing on the Esopus Creek, dining out…it’s all happening within minutes of Maidstone Lodge.
