Incredibly Clean & Cozy Chalet Just Minutes To Skiing At Windham Or Hunter Mts

Incredibly cozy, 3 bedroom (plus loft bedroom with 3 beds)/2 full bath chalet just minutes from Windham and Hunter Mountains in the town of Lexington, NY. This home boasts wide plank floors, an incredible patio, expertly manicured grounds with fire-pit and bbq grill, a working wood-burning stove, HD Television (with DirectTV), a large eat-in-kitchen, giant loft and more. 8 acre grounds are extremely private and quiet - perfect for a romantic getaway or a full-season family/couples ski retreat. A fully fenced-in yard (2 acres) is perfect for well-behaved pets. Mountain views are spectacular from the yard, and wildlife roams freely on the outside of the fence line.

Incredible local wildlife includes deer, mink, fox, grouse, bald eagles, blue herons, hummingbirds, wild turkeys, bobcats and more.

Our home was built by our uncle in 1988. It's solid, well-insulated and spacious. Wonderful shade trees surround the home and the grounds have been carefully manicured to ensure privacy - Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, Douglas Furs and various other evergreen's surround the perimeter. Lawns are professionally maintained with a walking mower; snow is removed promptly by plow.

About Tom & Marisa

My wife and I are lovers of everything outdoors - from skiing to hiking, fishing, biking, camping and gardening. Our favorite pastime is exploring the beautiful Catskill Mountains with our 3 children and our lovable Labrador. We spend most of our family time on the same road as our listing, so we are never too far.

Why Tom & Marisa chose Catskills

Our home was built by our uncle. It's solid, well-insulated and spacious. Wonderful shade trees surround the home and the grounds have been carefully manicured to ensure privacy - Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, Douglas Furs and various other evergreens surround the perimeter. Lawns are professionally maintained with a walking mower; snow is removed promptly by plow.

Visitors to our home have commented that the yard looks like something from a Four Seasons hotel! The pool is magnificent, and the surrounding lounge chairs and tables make it a great place to entertain/relax in the sun.

What makes this chalet unique

Peaceful, private and gorgeous. You'll love the beautiful gardens and spacious living area, and the pool is a unique touch that makes this place the ultimate escape from the city or the average, daily grind.

Cozy and comfortable family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Tom and Marisa's lovely home for three days and two nights for a ski trip at Windham Mountain. The modern cabin is very clean, spacious and equipped with all the necessities for a winter family vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire stove in the evenings while drinking hot chocolate and playing card games in the living room. The layout is perfect with high ceilings and a loft/library my 11-year old cousin loved sleeping in. Tom was very attentive and responsive to all my text messages and helpful in making suggestions in the area. We would love to visit in the summer months to take advantage of the amazing pool out front!

Perfection for our family (and dog!)

  • 5 of 5

So many great things to say: For the previous four years we stayed at a house outside of Woodstock that was much more expensive but we thought was right for our needs. Fortunately we widened the net and found Tom & Marisa's place. The house with a fantastic layout (loved that the kids could enjoy the loft, with the adults on ground floor), the pristine pool, the beyond beautiful grounds (which is fenced in so our dog could enjoy the vacation as much as we did), the get-away-from-it-all feel coupled with proximity to many great towns (Windham, Hunter, Tannersville) and many great hikes (Acra, Huckleberry Point, Kaaterskill High Peak, Kaaterskill Falls) PLUS the gracious and helpful communication with the owners -- it all adds up to our new favorite place to escape to in the Catskills. We've already booked our next visit ;-)

Perfect Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. The house itself was extremely comfortable, spacious, very clean and well kept. This was a perfect relaxing vacation with a beautiful heated pool. I have an 11 year old autistic son, and he had the time of his life and was comfortable from the minute he walked into the house. By far the best vacation we have taken as a family and I truly can't wait for our next visit!!
