Cottages along the meadow-lands of what used to be the shores of historic Lake Nottawassaga (now known as Honk Lake, now empty) with the Rondout Creek winding through the meadows are at the foothills of the Catskill Mountain high peaks above Napanoch. See the aerial video at this link: <https://bcove.video/2OALUTz> These three cottages are out of "Hansel and Gretel" and have been privately owned for over 75 years so this is the first time they have been offered to the public. This unusual gem is a broad meadow surrounded by the hills of Wawarsing and has the Catskill Mountains in the distant view. The Rondout Creek runs through the midst of the meadow and out to the bedrock gorge where the magnificent waterfalls and pools are hidden. Three charming and well maintained cottages are on the highlands above the Honk Lake meadows with panoramic views to the west across to the Catskills beyond the Rondout Creek. A staired trail from each of the cottages made of wood or stone descends to the Honk Lake meadow where a short walk brings you to the Rondout Creek that meanders picturesquely though the field. Each cottage has two bedrooms and a bath with a fireplace in their living rooms. In addition a three car detached garage (28'x36') includes space for a workshop and a shed provides convenient storage for tools and equipment. Both additional buildings have electricity and water. Across the Rt 55 are the remnants of the Yama Farms Resort, the famed summer residence of many famous dignitaries during the turn of the century. Further up the valley is the large Rondout Reservoir, home of giant trout, which permits row boats. Nearby are the trails of Vernooy Kill State Forest, Lippman Park, Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, Sundown Wild Forest, etc. Many adventure recreation opportunities offer themselves with world class rock climbing in the Shawangunks, mountain biking and hiking in Minnewaska, hang gliding in Ellenville, and hiking the unique Dwarf Pine forest in Cragsmoor, as well as Antiquing, Flea Markets, Yard Sales, Summer Stock Theater, Wine Trails, Farm Produce, and U-Pick ‘Em fruits and vegetables, canoe and kayaking, fishing, hunting, and many fine restaurants within 10-15 minutes.
