About Christopher Nelson and Kathryn Auer

Owners were born and raised on Long Island but needed a quiet place to 'get away from it all'. We'd been visiting Windham for years as our favorite family retreat and in 2013 fell in love with the house and property we call our second home.

Christopher Nelson and Kathryn Auer purchased this house in 2013

Why Christopher Nelson and Kathryn Auer chose Catskills

Windham has been our getaway in all seasons for year. From taking the kids to Zoom Flume in the summer to Ziplining at Hunter in the fall to skiing at Windham mountain in the winter, there's always something to do for everyone in our family. Aiden's Pass (as it's named for our son) is in the town of Windham, minutes away from great food and fun, but also far enough from the town center, surrounded by scenic views of the mountains for those days when we need a little R&R

Just the right size and place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three generations of hikers chose this location for a hike in the northern Catskills and it served us well. Upon arriving we opened windows to allow ventilation to cool it off. The property is open facing west and gets a pretty good breeze. We really enjoyed sitting on the back deck relaxing, watching a couple of bats as they performed insect control in the twilight sky and later the fireflies entertained us. When the weather is good there is plenty of room to get outside and spread out. The morning of our hike it was beautiful and we headed for Big Hollow for a successful outing involving a short drive to the destination, a challenging climb ( for some of us ), and snacks at a lookout high up the mountain. Perfect.

The house is only a couple miles from Windham where there are several places to eat. It is nice and quiet with lots of privacy. The three levels allowed us to scatter for playing and sleeping, then gather around the large dining room table for games or meals. Very nice and open layout with a bathroom on each level. We had a great time.

Excellent place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we expected and a bit more. We enjoyed the views of the beautiful surrounding mountains as we relaxed on the large back deck. The access to hiking is wonderful - with trails of all skill levels close by. Outstanding house, property and trip.

Spring Skiing in February

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely long weekend at Aiden's Pass over the latter part of the February break. The weather was unseasonably warm but the conditions at Windham were surprisingly good. This home is close to the slopes and close to town. It is extremely clean and well maintained and was a perfect fit for our two families. The kitchen is well equipped if you do want to eat in (such as crock-pots, coffeemakers, etc.) and close to many restaurants if you opt to eat out. There are great views of the mountain.

It was a perfect getaway for our families and I would highly recommend this home.

Ski Windham Stay Aiden's Pass

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for a ski trip to Windham. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. The mountain was a 5 minute ride away. The dining room, kitchen and deck had great views of Windham mountain. The house was super clean. Owners provided everything we needed. Although we weren't in the house much it was an excellent place to relax after a long day on the slopes. We hope to come back soon!
