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 Windham

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 House and Location

  • 5 of 5

This was such a nice cabin. House has been renovated and the kitchen is fantastic and it is FULLY equipped. Great spot up the mountain so you avoid all the day trippers.

Roomy, well equipped, clean, convenient and all around great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my parents and brother recently and we loved it. My family is picky and opinionated and I'm always in charge of finding a place - so I was thrilled with how lovely this home is. It's really roomy and well laid out. It was absolutely spotless. Everything is in really good condition. The kitchen in particular is fantastic. Everything you could possibly need. We like to have breakfast and bring (or make) an easy dinner one night and it's rare to have a rental kitchen be this nice and well stocked with dishes, pots, etc. Even small things like water pressure (great) and quality of linens (soft thick towels) were just perfect. Having individual heat controls in each room allowed for all of our different preferences. We opted to drive to the lodge vs walk to the slopes but it was a super quick trip. Communication with the owner was prompt, easy and courteous throughout. We've stayed in a number of condos in upstate NY and Southern Vermont over the years and this is now our top choice for future trips. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at the Alpine Escape for a ski trip with friends. First, the property is a five minute drive to the slopes. Second, it is a modern, comfortable, well-equipped home. Especially the kitchen which has very nice pots, pans and knives as well as other supplies for guest use, a very welcome change from other rentals... We had two families, and the lay out was very comfortable for two families to spend time together and also have privacy. Finally, the owners are very responsive when needed.

The perfect townhouse for a ski getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alpine Escape over MLK weekend and could not have had a better experience. It was the perfect space and setup for us. We were there with 4 adults and 5 children.

The house is extremely clean and well furnished while the kitchen is completely updated and provides anything you would need to prepare a wonderful meal while still socializing with everyone near the fireplace.

Peter and Lynne provide very specific and easy instructions for everything which makes for a hassle free stay.

We hope to visit Alpine Escape again soon! Highly recommend!!
