Why Scott chose Catskills

We purchased this home first and foremost because of it's outstanding construction & quality craftsmanship, but the super close runner up reason was that it embraced everything we found appealing in a vacation getaway which is location, beautiful surroundings & smart use of interior space & worthwhile, fun and intriguing amenities. After looking for over five years in the Hunter Mountain area we finally found it all in the Mink Hollow Lodge!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for a long weekend to catch the tail end of the ski season, and had a group of 10 with us. I'm always a bit nervous renting ski houses on line because you never know if what you see is what you get, and with so many friends and family, we wanted everything to go smoothly. Well, I can tell you without a doubt, what we got was even better than what we saw on line. The house is beautiful, full of warmth and charm. Every amenity you could imagine was at our disposal...including a crock pot! The linens were fresh and clean, and the entire house was immaculate. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, and the game room downstairs, with a bar area and regulation size pool table, was the perfect spot for the teens to hang out after a long day on the slopes, while we watched movies in the living room. And, let's not forget the outdoor hot tub...that too was immaculate, and in perfect condition. We lit a fire in the outdoor fire pit, jumped in the hot tub and relaxed with the snow coming down on us...couldn't have been a more picture perfect place to spend a long ski weekend.

Perfect quiet hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we get together for a small college reunion. This year we stayed at Mink Hollow Lodge. It was the perfect location for the 8 of us to unwind, relax and enjoy each other's company. The house, nestled in the woods, is lovely and well appointed. We cooked a wonderful dinner on our first night and enjoyed the hot tub and game room. The bedrooms were comfortable and every couple had their own bathroom. Saturday was spent playing golf and shopping, all just a short drive away. The large screen TV and surround sound made our watching of the Olympic's opening ceremonies a memorable experience. We all agreed that Mink Hollow Lodge was one of the best places we have gone for our annual reunion in a long time! The next time we are looking to stay in this area, we will definitely book this house again!

Beautifully maintained, amazing back yard

  • 5 of 5

Rented this lovely lodge for a weekend with friends. Home was spotless and ready for our rental. The yard is perfect for a night under the stars with a big bonfire area to enjoy, fire wood included! There were clear instructions for all of the amenities, including a/c which was awesome. The hot tub in the back yard was new and crystal clear. The quirky decorations around added to the fun of the place! You will love it!

Amazing Stay, Gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

This may have been my best vacation yet! JoAnn and Scott were absolutely amazing, second only to the lovely home they own. We had a large group and everyone was amazed at how beautiful and comfortable all the rooms were. JoAnn was so helpful and told us of places nearby to check out. One of the best trips I've ever had, and I can't wait to visit again. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation, in a beautiful setting. Check out the nearby waterfall, it's amazing :)

nice location, nice inside, beautiful view, fun

  • 5 of 5

We drove up to this house on Friday night. When we walked in the facility, we were amazed. The place was well decorated, and the rooms were nice, clean and spacy. A part of the master bedroom ceiling is made by glass, so that people who stay in the master room can have a nice sky view. The house is close to hiking trails (5 min driving). Also, there is a hiking trail right behind the house backyard, convenient! Neighbour is nice and friendly, and he came to the house help setup the hottub, also offered free firewood just in case we ran out (we had plenty, more than enough firewood btw). Overall, if you want to get away from cities, this is definitely the place you want to go!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was great find. From the first inquiry through to correspondence after our stay, the owners could not be any more accommodating. It is in immaculate condition and the location to Hunter Mountain was perfect. There are very special things about this house. The basement is a perfect hangout for those who want to stay up later without disturbing anyone who wants to turn in early. All of the bedrooms had comfortable beds and beautiful linens. The open layout of the living space made it easy to have family meals and spend time together. We highly recommend this property.
