Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful space! Our group drove up from the New York City area and the drive was absolutely stunning. The house provided plenty of space--we were 19 total--and its location was perfect for all of our outdoor activities (running, cycling, hiking, golf, lake activities). Leading up to our stay and through the weekend I had a few questions for Derrek, and he always responded promptly. I would definitely stay at the Mountain House in the future!

One of a kind - perfect family/group retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain House is incredible! Spacious home with stunning views and noticeable pride of ownership - the tour of the home just kept going! We did the special food and wine pairing and our taste buds couldn't have been happier - this is the real deal for a special getaway and we hope to be back soon. We also loved the fire pit, hot tub, beautiful surroundings, and working with the owner - he is awesome!

Couldn't ask for anything more!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were fabulous. There was enough room for everyone. We had more children with us than adults and we couldn't even hear them when they were in the basement. The best part was being able to sit around the dinner table together with the entire group. We had both ovens going and there was plenty of room in the refrigerator in the house and garage for everything we brought (which was truck loads!) We never left the house to go to the mountain, which was perfectly fine with us. We enjoyed the fire places, playing games, listening to music and soaking in the hot tub, which was immaculate! Derrek was extremely responsive and a gracious property manager. My daughter was already asking when we could go back! Would go again in a heartbeat. Thank you Derrek!!!

The perfect house for a multi generational family

  • 5 of 5

The mountain house was the perfect place for our family of 5 siblings, spouses, and 9 grandchildren to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. The house was more than spacious and gave each family enough sleeping and bathroom space. We spent a lovely day in Hudson while the men golfed, and the youngest grandkids loved the indoor hot tub!! We would definitely go back!
