Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Windham - Morning Star Vacation Home

5 Star Vacation Chalet With 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Loft and Game Room

Welcome to Morning Star Vacation Home in Windham NY.

We are Nestled in the heart of the Northern Catskill Mountains, this beautiful chalet home will enchant you with its peaceful charm.

It is perfect for a weekend getaway with kids, a special engagement, a family reunion, a skiing adventure, a Golf outing with friends and family or a relaxing retreat.

Morning Star is a hidden getaway just two miles from the Windham Mountain family ski area and the spectacular Windham Country Club’s championship 18-hole golf course. From winter to summer, fall to spring, Windham awaits you with year-round activities including: hiking, skiing, golfing, biking, snowmobiling and horseback riding.

Scenic views stretch in every direction from the house’s back porch. Cook up some cheeseburgers on the grill! During hunting season, sportsmen can find deer, wild turkeys and other game abound. The endearing town of Windham is a haven for fine dining, lively bars, community festivals, church socials, movie theatres, and fine art galleries. For world class skiing, test your skills at the more challenging Hunter Mountain or enjoy the family-orientated slopes of Windham Mountain. Both are just mere miles away.

Morning Star is the perfect retreat after a grueling day on the slopes, an early morning hike at Kaaterskill Falls or a day exploring the jewels of Windham. Guests love to get cozy with a book by the house’s blazing fireplace. Enjoy the game room’s ping pong table, foosball table, dart board and table games (including a large collection of Legos and Barbie playsets for the kids).

The living room’s comfy overstuffed couches and rustic decorations create the perfect mountain retreat atmosphere. The kitchen is outfitted with all the necessities and more. Central air-conditioning keeps the house cool through summer months.

The home includes three separate bedrooms and a large loft with four couches that convert into beds. Young and old especially enjoy the loft as a cozy hideaway – some of our guests refer to it as “the man cave.” It is tastefully decorated with vintage skis and beautiful local photography. Morning Star comfortably accommodates 10 to 14 guests. There is plenty of parking along the gravel driveway.

Every need is provided for. A professional cleaning staff will prepare the house for your arrival, including setting the thermostat so a comfortable atmosphere is ready for you. The house is meticulously outfitted with every convenience: from a stock of tea and coffee, plenty of fresh towels, firewood, and more. Yes, it includes towels, all sheets and blankets for all beds, (yes, even the futons in the loft)

During your stay, we recommend a morning trip to the Windham Country Store in town; enjoy freshly made donuts that are delicious enough to write home about. Be sure to include the Windham walking path for a relaxing afternoon stroll. During the winter months, be sure to go tubing at Windham’s Mountain’s icy slopes for wind-whipping fun. And after a long day enjoying all that the Catskill Mountains have to offer, Morning Star awaits you – enjoy a warm bath, some hot chocolate, and maybe a ping-pong tournament with friends before slipping into bed for the next day’s adventures.

Your perfect vacation home is waiting for you.

Great place for a long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Eleven friends and I (all 5 years out of college) got together for Labor Day weekend at the Morning Star Vacation Home. It was a fantastic destination for us, equipped with everything from a poker table to a large backyard for all sorts of yard games. The property is excellently maintained and has all the amenities described in the posting. We were also able to connect an Xbox to the large basement TV and play video games. Finally, the surrounding area is beautiful and well worth the drive from Boston/NYC/DC (where we came from).

The only con is a rule where we were allowed to leave just a single trash bag when departing from the property. There's a waste transfer station nearby that takes the trash, but it was closed because of the Labor Day holiday. This was a bit annoying and something to watch out for if you'll be leaving on a holiday.

Overall though, would definitely recommend to friends and family, and would certainly stay again if the opportunity arises.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a great review. Unfortunately the transfer station was closed. If this was relayed to us them we would have lifted the rule and allowed the trash to be left. We strive to be fair and reasonable to all our guest needs and special situations come up all the time. Thank you again for staying at Morning Star Vacation Home.

Great Windham Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this home. Owner was amazing since this was a last minute booking. House skept all 6 of us confortably without us using the loft area or the basement/ganeroom. Loved having everything labeled so i didn't have to spend time searching for stuff. You won't go wrong here. We hope to be back in the winter.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Morning Star on four separate occasions and have been so pleased each time. The house is lovely, so clean and well organized. It's also lots of fun! The game room in the basement was great for the kids as well as adults. The first level has a cozy sitting room with fireplace and clean kitchen. The loft was great for the kids to all be able to sleep together. The drive is less than 10 minutes from Windham which is where we skied. Delvis, the manager, is great to work with.

Perfect spot in Windham!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our annual ski trip. We had a group of 10 - 4 adults and 6 kids of varying ages, and the layout of the house was perfect for our needs. The kids hung in the basement & the loft area, and the adults in the open kitchen / living area, just enough to feel cozy while not on top of each other. The house was well-stocked & the location an easy drive to downtown Windham & the mountain. Thanks so much!

Fabulous house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Windham!! The house was unbelievably clean and organized! We loved the basement with all the games and tables. The house had absolutely everything we needed! My family had a blast. So close to the mountain and to town. We cannot wait to come back! Thanks for a great stay.

Beautiful home and great holiday getaway for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, I was actually stunned. The house is beautiful, the pictures do not do the property justice. I highly recommend renting this property for a large group. The house is not only beautiful but is spotless, very organized and has alot of things to do for any age (game room was dominated by a bunch of 30 year olds). The house is also very close to town but remote enough where were not a bother to neighbors. Delvis was extremely helpful and prompt in his responses when I had questions over the weekend. My only caveat was the garbage situation. As per the welcome letter, you are only allowed to leave behind one bag and will be charged $10 for any extra bags left. We had 12 people and were there for 3 nights, in total we had about 10 - 12 bags, almost $120 for garbage removal. We did some research and there is a dump in Windham which we brought the first load to on Saturday. Information about the dump, location, directions and hours of operation would have been a helpful piece of information.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Windham Country Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the scenic Northern Catskills of New York State. Designed in 1928 by Len Raynor from famed Cooperstown, the course was remodeled in 1964. Golf Digest rates Windham C.C. 3 1/2 stars, and a 'must' play. The course is scenic and challenging. The blue tees rate a modest 70.4 with a slope of 120. At 6005 yards, the course plays tougher than expected. Women, seniors, and juniors love the forward tees at 4,651 yards—the rating is 69.2 with a slope of 112. Conditions are excellent, and the professional staff under their PGA pro, Brian Lowe, is friendly and knowledgeable.
