This Home Has It All: Hot Tub, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Entertainment Room, Etc.

THE XENIA in Windham

The many famous reasons for visiting Windham in the Catskill Mountains are all within short driving distances from this spacious, quiet and private mountain home. Whether hiking, bicycling, strolling to the neighbor's animal farm, skiing, hunting, seeking nature at its best or just relaxing and rejuvenating, you will enjoy the serenity of our idyllic location.

This family get away is situated on a 5.5 acre private land with forest, and a huge well groomed lawn for kids of all ages to enjoy. There is a fire pit with a picnic table for your entertainment, and an outdoor Jacuzzi, basketball hoop, along with all the amenities that the house has to offer. You can find year round activities to venture in or simply enjoy the privacy of the house with the company of your friends and family.

'The Xenia' is within moments, (5 min) to the famous Windham Mountain Ski Resort, and 15 minutes to the more challenging Hunter Mountain Ski Resort, and picturesque Hunter village. Windham is ideal for the golf lovers, with its Country Club's 18-hole golf course. You can also stroll along Main Street, browsing at a variety of antique stores, fine art galleries and exquisite restaurants and bars. There are mountain trails for bicycling, hiking, and snowmobiling just 10 minutes away, including the famous Windham High Peak - Burnt Knob Loop.

River fishing, and swimming is just 30 minutes away at Kaaterskill Creek with its famous swimming holes. Nearby you can also find the Zoom Flume water park, and the Windham Adventure Park with its rock-climbing, Bungee trampoline, Paintballing and Skateboarding. You can find horseback riding farms and petting animal farms nearby. A scenic driving distance, (30 min) to historic and artistic town of Hudson, passing through the famous Rip Van Winkle bridge over breathtaking views of Hudson River, can satisfy anyone's artistic skills in photography and antiquing.

'The Xenia' is a retreat for all tastes. The spacious entertainment and gaming room has an 8.5' pro billiard table, a ping pong table, a game table for cards and board games, a 50' flat screen TV with satellite and Blu-ray with a 5.1 channel surround sound system, as well as an in-ceiling stereo system for blasting your favorite tunes. There is a WIFI connection throughout the house with blazing speeds. For those cold winter days there is also a cast iron wood-burning stove.

The house features a fully equipped large kitchen with cookware and utensils, including spices, condiments, and even an array of teas and coffees. It includes an eat-in dinning set, microwave, toaster, Panini press, coffee maker, cappuccino/espresso maker, hand mixer, and a counter top food processor. The spacious dining area seats 10. The large French door opens to a deck with a gas grill and a dining set for enjoying your meals 'al fresco' style. After all, this is the reason for your stay, to breath fresh air, and the aromas of the forest that surrounds you.

There are three full bathrooms: one in the master suite on the first floor with a whirlpool and a shower cabin, one in the first floor hallway with a bathtub/shower, and one on the second floor with a shower cabin. Every bathroom is supplied with a hair dryer, hand soap and towels.

There are four bedrooms in the house: The master bedroom features a queen size bed, a sofa and a His and Hers bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and a day bed with trundle. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds and a day bed with trundle. There is also a sitting area on the second floor that has a queen size sofa futon that converts into a bed. In that same seating area there is a TV and an office with a desktop computer and a printer. We even supply the paper!

We supply all the linens too!

Two more twin mattresses can be made available upon request.

There is plenty of space in the three living rooms to relax, hang out, watch TV, or read a book, while the kids play in the entertainment room.

The XENIA, (hospitality in Greek) is the perfect retreat. Just pack a few things and go. We take care of all the rest. Have an unforgettable stay!!!

Almost perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 11 had a great time! The house had everything we were looking for (firepit, hot tub and grill). Everything was as described. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because there were not enough trash bags in the house (especially made clean up difficult, since we had to throw out our own trash or the owners charge an extra trash take out fee). Also there was no dishwasher soap, only normal dish soap which you can't use in the dishwasher. Besides those two points, everything else was great!

Wonderful house, property and service

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been any happier with our time at The Xenia - the house was perfect for a big party, sleeping 14 adults comfortably. The amenities were all impeccable, and the yard was enormous! The property is super convenient to town and the Windham resort (we went in the summer, so no skiing for us, but if you're looking for a ski house, The Xenia should be at the top of your list!).

Last, but certainly not least, Roula and Chris were fantastic leading up to and during our stay, answering emails within minutes. Overall, the experience was top notch, and I would highly recommend The Xenia to anyone looking for a rental in Windham.

Secluded with Plenty to Do!

  • 3 of 5

The property was terrific, and we really loved Windham. Our party of 7, ranging in age from 6 to 77 had a terrific stay over the 4th of July. The house was comfortable and luxurious, with a well stocked kitchen, nice bedrooms, a cool backyard, and a great game room. Windham is a charming little town with nice restaurants and shops, and there was a good supermarket 6 miles from Windham. The owners were very responsive to all my questions during our stay. However, my average rating of the property is due to some bait and switch factors that I feel could have been communicated more effectively by the owners.

1) They advertise this property on VRBO as good for pets. However, this is a conditional allowance that we didn't truly understand until the night before checking in. As it turns out, dogs are allowed, but not on the main living floor or the bedrooms. Only in the ski room and the game room in the basement. So if you're dogs get anxious when they're not allowed to be with the humans, it's not necessarily a dog friendly place.

2) This condition was communicated to us by the owners, but in my opinion, not effectively. After we reserved on VRBO, the owner sent me an email explaining the gameroom/ski room restriction. The significance didn't quite sink in at first, and of course it was advertised as pets allowed on VRBO. I sent payment and got a confirmation with a boilerplate contract via email. I emailed back inquiring if I needed to sign this contract or if it was just a template included in their confirmations. No reply. Several months passed, and then on the evening of our stay, I got an email from the owners with a contract and asking for my electronic signature. I reviewed the contract and noticed that there was a "No Pets Allowed" clause. This confused me, and I'd long since forgotten about the email explanation from the owners regarding the gameroom/ski room restriction. Upon inquiring, the owner provided me with a reminder that she'd explained this from the beginning, that many of her guests were allergic to dogs, etc. In the end, we worked through it, but given the VRBO 'pets welcome' rating, the contract signature request on the eve of our stay, and the increasingly vocal explanation from the owners after it was too late for us to change plans, I certainly felt like this was a bait and switch, and I was put out.
