Beautiful Get Away!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a great place to host a large family with ages ranging from 3 months to 63 for a Family Christmas Celebration! We all fit the rooms were clean and nice. There was a great hill for sledding, plenty of kitchen space and bathrooms. You have to go out and in to access all the living areas, but it wasn't difficult. The staff is amazing. Had a wonderful time!


Wonderful trip

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We rented this property for our annual college reunion trip we had about 22 adults and 18 kids and did NOT feel crowded. The porch overlooking the property was wonderful since we had a lot of rain. You could still be outside enjoying the view without getting soaked. The owners were AMAZING to work with and super responsive to all of our needs. I will be contacting them soon to hopefully book next years trip!

Second time renting out both Riverview Estate and the newly completed Deer Ridge

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Second time renting out both RiverView Estate and the newly completed Deer Ridge for our large group to enjoy a weekend in the Catskills. Both the privacy and hospitality that Walter and Gale provide their guests is five star! The property is wonderful for special events and reunions. Everyone in our group (60+) is very excited to return next year. Can not recommend a weekend up there enough.


The Bosco Company Retreat

What an amazing location! The views are beyond spectacular, estates were gorgeous! We had our company retreat & everyone fell in love with the place. Firepits, heated pools, entertainment lodge, all of these amenities made it a fantastic trip for my coworkers and I. Gale & her team were lovely to work with!!

72 People. No Problem. Brophy is The Best

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Longtime Brophy Renter here. The fact that I’ve stayed at Riverview and Lakeview 4 times should tell you something about how great the experience is working with Gale, but if you’re not convince by the almost perfect reviews she’s received, keep reading:

This time my group of 72 people rented both RiverView and the newly completed DeerRidge at the same time to accommodate everyone and I’ve had many of my group tell me it was the best weekend of their life. The properties are easily walkable and fit together nicely to create a massive estate perfect for a huge group like mine. Every house has a different personality, The Main House a perfect hangout for those wanting to relax with it’s hot tub, sauna, and multiple porches. The Entertainment lodge perfect for people wanting to hang out, play games, watch football, or sit by a fire. The cottage is a quant escape on the same property. And the immaculate, sprawling DeerRidge is an incredible place for all 72 of your friends to gather at one time. I organize experiences for a living and there is no rental property like this anywhere in the state. The layout, the luxury, the amenities… you can tell Gale had a master plan for this estate and spared no attention to detail.

Beyond the property, so much of an enjoyable rental depends on the people that hand over the keys, and Gale Brophy is unlike any other host I’ve ever experienced. You have ll the space and privacy in the world until you need something: a recommendation, help with a dead car battery, questions about how to operate the property… literally the second you need something her and Walter are there, ready to help. I struggle to call her a concierge because she’s really a friend that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable, but the level of service is world class.

I could go on all day, but here’s the bottom line: For a combination of luxury, scalability, service, amenities, location, and price… this has got to be the best rental property in the world. Stop looking and go find out what I’m talking about.

Fantastic Time - Beautiful Space

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Imagine waking up in the morning and seeing wild turkeys running around outside your door. That was what I awoke to everyday on Estates By Brophy. Coming from the city this was such a lovely space to really breathe and open yourself up to the wonders of nature.

I spent my mornings looking out over the fields and walking through the woods located around Estates By Brophy. It was such a lovely time, and even though it rained a little while we were there we had a clean comfortable space to be inside. With amenities like a hot tub, pool, and exercise area this was a perfect place to "get away from it all" without leaving behind all of the luxuries of home.

Outstanding Service. Wonderful Amenities. Great Hosts. Beautiful Property. Best For Any Group Size.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This property is just perfect! My family and friends enjoyed all the amenities. . .the swimming pool, billiards table, volleyball court, big yard for sports, etc. We spent a lot of time in the evening around the fire pit, which was fantastic. The house is very private and safe for kids too. As much as this property is rented, we were worried that everything would be "worn out." We could not have been more wrong. The house was very clean and everything was well maintained. We looked forward to coming back from the day activities just so we could hang by the fire pit and have some cocktails! This rental property is at the top of our list. The Brophy's are amazing hosts. They are available at all times if any help is needed during the stay. Gale and Walter are so kind. They answer calls even during the late night hours. They are such wonderful people. We had kids ranging from one year old to 17 years old. Every one had a wonderful time. We were very happy to hear from our teenagers that they rate this property as outstanding. There are many outdoor activities you can do near this property. The Brophys have prepared a list with information about different activities you can do in and around the town. This list is very helpful for large groups like ours that has kids of different age groups. Horse riding, zip lining, kayaking, treking, fishing etc. are some of those activities in summer.


Five Stars!!

We stayed at Deerridge with a large group of 40 for two weeks. The accommodations are spacious and beautifully designed. The staff do a wonderful job at maintaining the property both inside and out, and are always available when you need them for something. Everyone had a great time and left feeling pampered and rejuvenated!!

Great Vacation Rental For A Large Family!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We have a large family and we were looking for vacation rental to celebrate our grandfather’s birthday. DeerRidge estate was the perfect place for us. It sprawling estate and countryside view was magnificent. The estate is set up like a country ranch and has the feel of the Wild West. It gives you the “cowboy” feeling. There was a lot of detail and thought put into setting up the house. This estate can house large families and is ideal for special occasions and celebrations of up to about 40 people. The rooms are clean, neat and pleasant. There is central air conditioning in most of the rooms. The dining room is large and the kitchen is outfitted with commercial grade equipment to properly host and cater to the needs of a large group. There are two fridge/freezers and an ice maker in the kitchen. Included amenities were exactly as stated online. There are many chairs in and outside of the house to lounge around and socialize. At dusk you can enjoy watching the sun setting behind the mountains as it casts pretty colors across the sky. At nightfall there is a fire pit you can warm up at, and enjoy quality family time with everyone sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows.

The staff there were eager to help. When we arrived at the estate the manager greeted us with a smile and gave us a detailed tour of the estate. The caretaker was on hand for any and all of our needs. He was very accommodating and when we needed some rearranging of rooms he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Before we left we had the honor of meeting the owner of the estate in person. She was warm and gracious to us. She personally oversees each stay to make sure everyone that stays there is 100% satisfied. We were definitely pleased.


Amazing Weekend

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I had a great time. The property was so spacious and luxurious, but still had a sweet rural vibe. I would HIGHLY recommend. The property manager and the owner were both joys to work with and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. There are plenty of private rooms but also plenty of central spaces for everyone to hang out.


Prom Weekend

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Best weekend ever!!! A group of us stayed on the property after prom for the weekend and had a fantastic time. The amenities were incredible, the property was beautiful and we had a great time swimming in the pool. Very clean, spacious and accommodating to our needs!!

Perfect House For A Larger Group Of Wedding Guests

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A group of us traveled to the area for a wedding, and found that all three Brophy estates were the perfect choice for the friends and family of the bride and groom. (You can even have the wedding on-site it would be perfect!)

DeerRidge offered spacious bedrooms, beautiful views, a plethora of gathering space both inside and out, in addition to a private, secluded location that made the weekend very special. This estate is on a gorgeous piece of land, that is very well kept and convenient to town. It was truly the perfect accommodation for our family while we were in town.

Thank you for having us!
