New York City–based couple Danielle and Ely Franko share the renovation budget for the Hunter Greenhouse, a 1971 Catskills home that they purchased in 2016 and now rent out as a snug holiday home.

Tired of the hectic city grind, and yearning to be closer to nature, urbanites Danielle, a dermatology physician assistant, and Ely, who works in software development, purchased a 1,522-square-foot house in the mountainous Tannersville village in Greene County, about a two hour’s drive north of New York City.

They had made their purchase on impulse, and didn’t even realize how close the house was to North-South Lake and Kaaterskill Falls, two of the biggest hiking attractions in the Catskills. 

The Frankos spent two years renovating the house, and now rent out the Hunter Greenhouse through Airbnb, so others can enjoy their efforts, and this beautiful part of the world.

After the renovation, the Hunter Greenhouse was painted green to match the trees around it, earning it its name.
