About Matthew Wizeman

We are native New Yorkers from the big city but with many years of Catskills experience. We love the getaway and we love the festivals, sporting events, skiing, vivid fall colors and the great restaurants of Windham.

Matthew Wizeman purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Matthew Wizeman chose Lexington

Our family has been going to the Catskills since 1968. We spent our summers on Hunter Mountain for over 20 years. When my parents sold their place in Hunter we sought a property close to Hunter but even closer to Windham, which has transcended itself into one of the premier family resorts on the East Coast. We wanted the seclusion and serenity of quintessential Catskills but also enough things to do to keep our vacation time exciting. When we bought the cabin it was a very simple house and to a large extent it still is, but we added a back deck, a shed for of our action gear, a fire pit, new gutters, and a landscape overhaul. The property is now designed for a great getaway with plenty of peace and quiet, but with plenty to do as well. We hope you enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

The property is minutes from both Hunter and Windham. There is open space to relax and play. The fire pit and back deck provide unique sanctuaries for those looking to get away a brief respite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time in the cabin. Loved playing frisbee golf! Cabin was as quaint as advertised. Went for a hike along the Windham Path and heard live music at dinner at Chicken Run (cool restaurant). Thanks!

A perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

This trip was so relaxing and an amazing experience. The area was perfect there is so much to do and see. The house was a cute little house that is being very well taken care of. My friends and I would definitely love to stay again!

Great place to stay with the whole family. Reasonable price. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay with our 4 children (2 adult children & 2 teenagers). There was room enough for all of us to stay together, which was very important to me. We were able to cook breakfast at home and even roasted hot dogs for dinner one night at the backyard fire pit. We skied at Windham Mountain, went tubing at the Adventure Park, and hiked the Windham Path. The location of the the cabin was perfect for this - close enough to everything that it was only a short drive, but far enough away that we could get away from all the resort hoopla.

Cozy and practical: a perfect base for a ski weekend.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home from home with all the essentials for a weekend stay. 5 of us (4 adults, 1 kid) were very comfortable there and Matthew was helpful and speedy in all our communications. Highly recommended if you’re someone who cares about simple comforts rather than fancy extras.

15 min from Windham Mountain

  • 4 of 5

15 minutes from skiing at Windham. 10 min to drive into town for dinner. Enough room for everyone. Clean and warm. We went skiing and eat in town, this was the perfect place to stay for us.

No privacy, Not clean.

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately, it wasn't the most pleasant experience. It was very dirty and smelly. It was very close to neighbors like to the point of hearing conversions and seeing Each other, zero privacy. Only enough hot water for one quick shower. One bedroom has no heat/ air. Not horrible, but not comfortable, would not recommend or return.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I will say only this. You never contacted me about this issue. Your stay was almost a month ago so I had to go back through my notes. I have had several guests since that time and all gave high reviews. Further I have been to the cabin since and it certainly did not smell. Again, it is never good to hear about a guest who did not love their stay, and issues may occur, but the long history with have with guests will show that we almost always get high marks and if there are issues, we are very responsive. You can contact me directly to discuss if you wish.

Nice and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage! The space is clean and well-organized, and the grounds and fire pit are great! I was also really impressed by the responsiveness of the owner! One of my friends somehow ended up at the wrong place and thought the key was missing, and he was extremely helpful and did everything he could to make the situation right.
