Property Type: 1family+Access Apt

Description: This is a unique opportunity to own one of the few historic Catskills Park multiplex guest houses, now a private family retreat. This property is being offered for the first time in 35 years and is the perfect location for a grand country home or classic bed and breakfast. Just minutes to all the favorite Catskills recreation venues and activities, this rare compound with giant sized living spaces and an extensive history of recreation and leisure, is being offered with most of the furnishings, fixtures, and decorations. There are 44 rooms on three levels in this 12, 500 Sq.ft home consisting of 22 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, performance theatre which once hosted plays, recitals, and ballet classes, a breakfast/sunroom next to the massive kitchen with separate pantry room and 4 bonus rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors being used as home offices, a television lounge and home supply storage rooms. Additionally, there is a one-bedroom cottage, heated swimming pool, large pond, a hot tub, and walking trails around the formal grounds and into the woods. The home has occasionally been rented for special events such as weddings and group retreats. This 1900 Catskills lodge is seeking new stewards to reimagine the twenty first century purpose for this enchanting home. Big Indian Springs has tremendous historic charm and certainly a gem of a Catskills icon hidden in the once thriving 'vacation valley'.
Once a ballet camp for girls during the 1960s, the bedrooms and communal spaces are decorated in lively period themes. The spacious formal dining hall with wood burning stove was repurposed as a den/family gathering space with sitting areas, casual dining zones, and a recreation area with table tennis/pool table. The theater with a dressing/costume room on either side of the stage is also accessible from the exterior as well. This space could comfortably seat 30 - 50 guests and is highly suited to live performances, conferences, or training classes. This is a valuable facility inside this amazing home. Down the hall to the right from the formal living room with fireplace and French doors on to the wrapround open porch, is the roughly 25' x 20' classic library also with wood burning fireplace and a bank of bay windows looking out to the pond and the Big Indian valley beyond. This is a property worth serious consideration by an investor looking for a historic compound that can be upgraded and transformed into a truly special place, consistent with the rebirth of this region.
