This Sullivan County Victorian isn’t just any ordinary summer cottage on picturesque Masten Lake.

In fact, this seasonal cottage is on the National Register of Historic Places, thanks to its location within the now-defunct Sullivan County Country Club, a popular summer vacation colony back in the late 1800s. The Borscht Belt region of the Catskill Mountains gained popularity as a retreat for Jewish families between in the 1920s and 1970s, but, since then, many old Catskills resorts became abandoned, sold off, or demolished. These days, however, the Borscht Belt is seeing resurgence while people discover what those families already knew back in the Jewish Alps’ glory days: Sullivan County is worth kvelling over.

As you can see, 1,832-square-foot home dating back to the turn-of-the-century offers a bit more to love than your standard three-season bungalow. Includes veranda porch, hardwood floors, chef’s kitchen, wood stove, stained glass, and a walk-up attic.

Also comes with one full bath plus a half-bath dressed in elegant subway tile walls and light-blue tiled floors.

Furthermore, the one-acre plot comes with a second cabin, perfect for guest accommodations or weekend rental.

The property is situated less than a mile up the road from Masten Lake. Grab the bikes and the kids and head to the lake for a day of swimming. Or, hop in the car and check out some charming nearby towns, like Mountain Dale, Mongaup Valley, and Bethel, site of the original 1969 Woodstock music festival.
