Neighborhood overview
Swinging Bridge Reservoir is the largest largest lake in the Sullivan Catskills, and one of the few that allows motor boats. You'll feel removed from the city, but still within 20 minutes of groceries and things to do. The neighborhood is a mix of seasonal homes and year round residents. A public boat launch is nearby, and just around the corner are two full services marinas--Starlight and Swinging Bridge Marinas.
Getting around
We recommend having car for your stay. Taxis are available, but ride sharing services are more sparse. Rental car services are available in Monticello for those arriving by bus, or in Port Jervis for those traveling via Metro North.

Otisville and Port Jervis Metro North Stations are each approximately 30 minutes drive from the house. The trip from NY Penn Station to Otisville is about 2 hours. Train access is great if you having members of your group who need to arrive/depart at different times.

Catskills Carriage is a luxury express service from NYC to Monticello, and the Shortline provides service between the city and Monticello as well.
