Mid Week Fun

  • 5 of 5

My office rented this great little estate for a little R&R, it was the most wonderful time we've had in a long time. The indoor pool was the perfect temperature for hot days, and there was plenty of space for us to spread out through this beautiful house. The decks that connect to the house were also a great plus in this rental. We all sat back and relaxed enjoying the park like grounds. We all had a wonderful time and I plan on coming back with my family. I HIGHLY recommend this estate.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We came here with all of my friends from college and their significant others and 2 kids. Joseph was great, met us there and gave us the tour. We had some difficulty with connecting to the wifi in certain parts of the house but that was our only issue. Wonderful for everyone to have their own room/bathroom! And of course the pool was great. We did lose power because of a storm and even though Jospeh was an hour away he came straight home and brought us candles and flashlights. Luckily it was only off for a couple hours. We had a great time!

Amazing House !

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the New Year's weekend. We were 9 couples + 10 kids. The house is huge and we had lots of fun, especially kids in the pool (pool temperature 82). Joseph-the owner lives next door, he was very helpful and answered all our questions. Couple times we had questions and he was always available to help. The house was beautifully decorated for holidays, very cozy and warm. As other reviews mention, 2 of the bedrooms are interconnected: you need to walk thru one to get to the other. We were 9 couples, and no one wanted to take the walk-through bedroom even though it is one of the nicest bedrooms, but luckily there was a 10th bedroom in the basement, that we occupied instead. Five of the bedrooms open up in the pool area and some previous reviews mentioned excess moisture in these rooms, but when we rented the house, all the pool rooms had been recently updated with the new wall heat/ac units, and I guess, hot air eliminates the moisture problem. Kitchen is well stocked. Plenty of seating for all of us. Plenty of parking. Amazing views around, we walked to some waterfalls near the narrow bridge, took great pictures. We loved our stay.

Above and beyond all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Four generations under one roof? We'd been looking forward to this family reunion for months with much excitement and a bit of anxiety. After all, our 9 adults (great grandmother, grandparents and three 30+ couples) and 15 children (ranging in age from 9 months to 16 years)had different wants and needs. Amazingly, this estate answered all of them. The indoor pool was our all-around favorite spot. Great grandma swam her early morning laps, the younger children spent their afternoons swimming and splashing and the older boys enjoyed their midnight swims. The pond and paddleboat were a cross-generational hit. Every evening we barbecued on the lovely decks overlooking the pond.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, roomy and comfy and the living quarters allowed different groups to congregate in various locations.

One major suggestion......the Martinos need to update their website. The photos don't do this place justice. We were so pleasantly surprised.

Thanks Joseph and Nancy for making these few days so special.

Unique and eclectic home with lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 22 people enjoyed our stay here very much. The pool was great for the kids. Ours are good swimmers, which is fortunate, because five of the bedrooms open into the pool space. It is large, and has rubber mats all around so it isn't slippery, but it was a little scary for me until I had seen them all in the pool, where they are like otters. Anyway, it would be a consideration for those with kids who are not great in the water yet. One of the nine bedrooms is only reachable by going through another bedroom and bathroom. I guess the suite is okay for a really close family, but it's not two separate bedrooms.

There is a great common space with room enough for everyone to gather for meals, games, crafts, or whatever, and a lower level game room as well. The outside decks are great, too. I think we used all the spaces every day. There is a nice path for a ramble in the woods, and the kids got a kick out of the paddle boat. There are two natural ponds with frogs and other wildlife, so they are not for swimming, but with the pool, who cares!

The bottom line is that we all had a great time!

Fun for Big Families

  • 4 of 5

Mr. Martino answered every question I had for our family reunion. The property was clean, there were plenty of beds and towels, and he kindly provided propane for the grill. The indoor pool was very popular, especially with the younger kids on a rainy day. Five of the bedrooms open directly onto the indoor pool area, but even when people were in the pool area, those in the bedrooms didn't hear much, which was great for those who went to bed early. The towels and bathing suits did not dry very well in the downstairs bedrooms, so I would definitely make use of the dryer, which is upstairs in the main area.

There were plenty of places to both gather as a group and get away from the crowd. I was able to get work done in the front room while everyone gathered in the dining and living rooms. Because we had a group of 28, Mr. Martino had set up tables in the shape of a U so that we could all eat comfortably- that was very helpful, and a nice place to gather during the day.

One note for those who have mobility issues: I would suggest staying in the rooms on the main floor. Mr. Martino has signs about the small steps- some of the floors are an inch or two higher or lower than the others, so it's something to be aware of. But my grandparents (who are 92 and not always steady) were able to handle it with some careful steps.

Overall, we had a great time. The pond was nice for the kids to fish and paddleboat, and there was plenty of land to explore on a hike. The deck is large and a great place to hang out, eat, or do some yoga. We also enjoyed day trips into Saugerties and Woodstock- both great places to explore. There was an airshow about an hour away, as well, which some of us also enjoyed. If we return to the Catskill area for a reunion, we would stay here again. I would recommend it for large groups who like places to hang out together, but also prefer some private space.
