Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 2.5 bath mountainside townhouse that easily sleeps 10.

Welcome to Alpine Escape! Enjoy incredibly easy access to some of the best skiing in New York. This home has all the extras and finishing touches that will make your vacation great, and it's only a short 1/4 mile walk to the slopeside drop off area where Wonderama and Lower Wipeout trails merge.

On the main level, the recently remodeled kitchen features custom shaker cabinets, beautiful granite countertops and all the cookware and extras you could want. Australian Cypress hardwood flooring is beautiful and comfortable, and the slate backsplash and LED undercounter lighting make this kitchen a cook's dream. The breakfast bar easily seats 4 and the dining table seats 6 or expands for more so you can all enjoy meal time together. The table leaves are self storing in the table and there are additional chairs in the lower level queen bedroom. The custom made antique ski and wine bottle chandelier is truly one of a kind. The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area in this open concept floor plan. Enjoy the comfortable couch and recliner and kick back and watch some movies on the Smart TV. The living room also has a Play Station 3 with lots of pre-loaded games, and it will also play DVDs and Bluray. If you really want to get cozy, relax by a nice warm woodburning fire. There is also a large deck off the main level. There is a Weber gas grill and Adirondack chairs so you can grill and sit comfortably with a nice view of the mountain woods. The main level has a half bathroom. For skiers, its important to note that there is also a large ski room that is the first room you enter coming in the front door. It is heated and features numerous ski racks, coat racks, and cubbies for your boots, helmets, etc...

Alpine Escape has 3 bedrooms and two sleeping lofts. The Master bedroom, on the upper level has a queen sized bed, and plenty of floor space. It has a dresser and large closet for storage. There is also a sleeping loft on the upper level with a full size bed and two twin size futons. The futons are normally set up as chairs but can be converted into comfortable twin mattresses. Both futons are in the loft with the twin bed and set up as chairs, but if you want to set them up as beds one of them will have to move to the adjacent loft area. Please note that this is a loft - not a private bedroom and is open to the rest of the floor. It is a great place for kids to sleep. The master bathroom is also on the upper level and it has a jetted tub and a separate shower with steam shower option.

On the lower level, there are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size bed, with plenty of additional floor space if you want to bring sleeping bags or a Pack n Play. It also has a dresser and closet for storage. The other bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds to sleep 4. There is a closet and some under-bed drawers for storage. The lower level bedrooms share a full bathroom with a large tub/shower combo. There is also a laundry room on the lower level with washer and dryer.

Contact us by phone or e-mail if you are interested in a half season. The half season rate is $10000.00 With the half season you would split the season with the owner and we would not rent to anyone else. Storage would be made available to you throughout the season so that you wouldn't have to transport your ski equipment and clothing back and forth throughout the season. Weeks/weekends would be split through mutual agreement with the owner.

About Pete Hegedus

We are a family of four that love to ski! With our permanent home and work in the NYC metro area, Windham is a great get away for our family. We hope that you will enjoy it every bit as much as we do.

Pete Hegedus purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Pete Hegedus chose Catskills

Alpine Escape and the whole Brainaird Ridge development is the perfect place for us. Although it's a townhouse, you feel like you're in your own very private home and it is a very easy walk to the slope side so you can step into your skis and ski down to the lodge at Windham. Brainard Ridge gave us much more privacy than Windham Mountain Village, and although it's a little deceiving, it's just as close!

What makes this townhome unique

Our home has lots of great details such as the custom made antique ski & wine bottle chandelier, a newly remodeled kitchens and other great features.

Great place for families!

We stayed at Alpine Escape over the

President's holiday weekend.

The townhouse was spacious and very comfortable. We skied, cooked most meals in the condo, and just hung out. It was very relaxing. Highly recommended.

Escape to Windham with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at the Alpine Escape. The home had all the essentials and so much more. The owner was also highly responsive and great to work with. The home was very spacious with a nice open floor plan. The living room as well as dining area could accommodate all seven us very nicely. We even had plenty of room for dinner guests one night. It was great to have all of the comforts of home including high speed wireless internet and a smart TV with access to Netflix. The master bedroom even had chargers for iPhones. The fireplace was great and came fully equipped with wood and fire starting materials. The bunk beds were a huge success for the kids aged 7, 7 and 3. All the beds were extremely comfortable and firm and there were plenty of blankets and pillows.The kitchen had all the utensils that you could need plus was quite well stocked. The place also had excellent shower pressure. We would definitely rent from Pete again! Thanks for a great weekend get away!

Perfect home base for our Golf weekend

  • 5 of 5

Went for a golf weekend and the house was everything that we expected. Clean and up to date, the bed situation worked out perfect. Working with the owner was smooth and trouble free. We even saw a bear as we were warned.

Awesome impressive townhome with picturesque views

  • 5 of 5

Working with the seller was easy. They provided us with lots of information, tips, and personalized service. They were responsive and very accommodating. The unit was just as impressive as the pictures show. It was very clean and updated offering lots of amenities and upgraded features like a gourmet kitchen to cook in, wood burning fireplace, huge deck, a large master suite with jacuzzi tub and steam shower. I felt at home, in fact this was my second trip to this townhome. The first trip was during ski season and this townhome is situated perfectly for easy access to the slopes. After a day of skiing take a short ride into town and enjoy some excellent restaurants and activities. During my second stay I went during the early summer and found plenty to do, from hiking right around the townhome, to natural trails located just minutes away. There is plenty of water activities, boating, fishing, zip lining and festivals to keep you busy during the summer. This is is not just a ski destination and I would not hesitate to come back to this townhome year after year you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Windham Mountain Option

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a weekend in February 2016. For those that know Windham, most of he rentals are for the full season and it is very rare to find a fully renovated 3BR condo to stay in close to the slopes. This property is completely up to date with a large living area and half bath on the first floor. There is a completely renovated, well stocked kitchen and working fireplace also on this floor. There are really 4 sleeping area as upstairs is a large master bedroom and bathroom and a separate loft area complete with a double bed. Our daughter stayed here while my son and nephew stayed in the bunk room in the basement. The basement has a bunk room with 4 bunks, a bedroom with a queen size bed and another full bathroom. There is laundry on this floor also. All-in an excellent alternative for weekend or week long Windham ski trips. Pete and Lynne Hegedus are very nice people who were incredibly helpful for our stay. The only consideration is the walk to the slopes is about a quarter mile. However, there are good alternatives - drive to the ski access point (same quarter mile) drop everyone off and have an adult walk back. You can leave your skis at the ski access point and no one in Windham will bother them. The other alternative is to just drive down and park with everyone else, but given the parking lot, the ski access drive is the way to go.
