About the property

7 BR 4 Bath hilltop Chalet on 26 private acres. Spacious and comfortable.

We are a non-smoking, pet free home. We love pets, but due to many of our guests (or guests in their group) having allergies, we have chosen to remain pet free. Thank you for understanding.

This spectacular mountain retreat is perfectly set up to accommodate family gatherings, corporate retreats, yoga enthusiasts/retreats, friendship reunions and much more. Sky View can comfortably sleep 22 people. Built atop the rolling hills of Old Chatham NY, you'll find peace and relaxation. The views are as spectacular as the setting and the grounds around the home. Enjoy the grounds, two small ponds and many hiking areas in and around the horse barn and corral. The private, 26 acre property, is a short drive to several charming villages, great restaurants, the Town of Hudson, hiking, swimming, fishing, tennis, skate boarding, cross country and downhill skiing and activities for everyone. Albany Airport is only 22 miles from our home. Home is very large yet is wonderfully set up for kids and families to share quiet and cozy spaces. There are three large living areas within the home. Five of the bedrooms have queen size beds. A bunk room on the lower level is perfect for kids young and old alike. All rooms in the house are open, airy and spacious. The Bedrooms on the lowest level have multiple beds. This beautiful getaway spot provides great accommodations, along with dramatic panoramic views of the Berkshires, Catskills and more. Relax in the large family room, enjoy the modern well equipped kitchen....enjoy great dining spaces both inside and out. There is also a large solarium room with wonderful seating for large groups and a separate area for small children. There are also separate, large areas in the house for children or adults needing some private time. The huge, private room over the garage is great for kids and yoga enthusiasts. Enjoy socializing with family and friends on the huge wrap around deck with outdoor dining table and barbecue. Our 5,400 square foot home has three levels, so it is easy to spread out the sleeping quarters but always keeping the focus on the expansive views. The lower level alone can sleep up to 11 people. The two upper level floors are incredibly spacious with separate living areas, large bedrooms and three bathrooms(four in total) . Relax and take in the spectacular natural outdoor scenery. Ask us about adding on daily maid service or a personal chef which can be arranged directly with an outside service at an extra cost. Outdoor recreation includes hiking, nature walks through this private gated estate, bird watching, and fishing in 2 private ponds. (please be sure to bring your fishing equipment.) Local ski resorts are nearby, as are downhill and cross country skiing. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, marvel at the surrounding countryside. Whatever the season, beauty abounds. Visit the nearby nature center, Crellin Park (has separate beach area) and local museums. Golf and tennis are a short drive away, or take part in the various, local music and film festivals, fairs and local activities in and around Chatham and the Hudson Valley. There are a plethora of healthy eating options nearby, grocery stores and wine and cheese shops (all less than ten minutes away). There is also a large, indoor tennis facility (open from October through June) only four miles from the house. Private lessons and clinics are available. Sky View is a spectacular retreat, perfect for you and all in your group. ** The main floor has three bedrooms, two full baths, access to our very large deck and only one step, perfect for elderly guests and entertaining inside or outside.

Please note that although our property is very large and secluded, we ask that you be respectful of our neighbors. No large events, outdoor weddings, prom weekends or other large parties are permitted on the property. This is strictly enforced through our caretakers, who are regularly taking care of the property. Thank you for respecting our guidelines.

About Adam or Rich

We own and rent other properties....from this mountaintop retreat to Cape Cod waterfront properties. We love creating beautiful environments and experiences for our guests. We make every effort to answer any questions you may have before and during your stay. We take pleasure in knowing that our guests are well taken care of and have a great experience.....and appreciate their great care for our home. It's a truly special place.

Adam or Rich purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Adam or Rich chose Chatham

We offer a great experience for every person in every age group. This property is meticulously maintained and offers something for everyone. The views are mesmerizing, as you can see for miles and miles in every direction. It is totally private and an incredible treat for all. But, we are not a wild party house and we discourage very large parties of any type.

What makes this lodge unique

Very large home is perfect for corporate retreats, family reunions, yoga retreats and other gatherings, etc.

Horse stalls and corrals on the property allow you to bring your own horse if you like. Ask us about boarding your horse during your stay or if you would like to arrange a carriage ride. Come stay with us and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“One of the most beautiful homes and properties I have ever visited. The views are really indescribable. The serenity and seclusion are second to none. Every room was well appointed, every feature was beautifully done and the house is very well thought out. Especially the common areas. Great place.”

Great house on a fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a large group of friends consisting of 15 adults and 8 young children rented the property for a long weekend away. The location is a pretty perfect compromise for a group coming from NYC and Boston. The house far exceeded our expectations and the property is remarkably beautiful. Suffice to say, we will be back.

A perfect fall weekend

  • 4 of 5

I rented the house to celebrate my birthday with friends and family. Adam was great in making sure we had everything in place and comfortable during our stay. It was a wonderful weekend. There is no way our photos could capture the view from the terrace of all the fall colors... perfection! Shopping at the local farms and cooking outside on the grill filled our days & nights. We will be back.

Celebrated Mom's 90th Birthday In Style

  • 5 of 5

My 3 siblings and I wanted a weekend getaway for our families and mom. We all had plenty of private space and comfortable sized common areas. It's an absolutely beautiful house and property. Our favorite time was just sitting on the deck and taking in all the beautiful views and sunsets! Rich and Adam were very helpful, checking in to make sure we had what we needed. Hope to be back again, perhaps to check out the Fall foliage. Bet it's spectacular!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our son's wedding on our nearby property and rented the house for all the first cousins (six couples)! They loved being together to reminisce over wine and cheese and the spectacular views. It was so much more ideal than individual hotel rooms would have felt. It could actually have accommodated even more people.

They could not thank me enough for arranging this and were raving about the house, the property and the views! We will certainly recommend this to others and probably use it again in the future.

(One cousin actually asked me to let him know if it is ever for sale!)

Kudos to Adam and Rich for creating such a wonderful environment!

We drove up to the property and all any one could say was "WOW!"

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with a student science and technology team for a national competition held in the area. We wanted a house, rather than a hotel, so our team could continue to work on projects as well as relax together. This house had the needed space to do just that. The pictures online made the house and property look great, but honestly they did not do it justice. The house, property, and view are absolutely stunning! The kitchen was well equipped for cooking for our crowd as well. If you choose this house, you must visit Chatham, it is an adorable little town! Adam and Rich were easy to work with and were helpful when it came to making travel plans. They did a great job keeping in contact and making things as smooth as possible. The only problem we encountered was that it was hard to leave! Everyone in our group wished we had more time to stay longer!
