About Hollister

We are a New York City family of 4 that enjoys skiing, hiking, cooking and entertaining friends upstate. Alas club sports for our children interfere with our ability to enjoy our home. Hunter Mountain is super user friendly and the best skiing in the area. Tip: for kids if they are doing ski school rentals are included. Also don't leave boots in the car they will become a cold thermos!

Hollister purchased this house in 2015

Why Hollister chose Tannersville

The reason we chose this property is we wanted to be in Tannersville. It is a great community year round for the beauty and activities. We love to ski and we also like to go to Onteora Park. We love the flow on the ground floor for interacting with family and friends. En suite bathrooms in the 3 Queen sized bedrooms on the 2nd floor are a plus and we love being walking distance from restaurants. 400 steps from the Village Market (take a right out of the house) it is the "go to" for locals and they make great coffee and breakfast food as well as sandwiches if you are not up for cooking or time challenged. The third floor has a spiral staircase so may not be suitable for very young children or uncoordinated adults.

What makes this house unique

For those taking a bus you are a block away from the drop off in Tannersville. LOTS of parking at our house. There is a lot more going on in Tannersville than Hunter if you are in it for skiing. We have WiFi and two wide screen televisions and some family friendly videos. We are walking distance from many restaurants and our favorite breakfast spot the Village Market is 400 steps on the right as you leave our driveway.

The 4 "C's" home ... Convenience, Cozy, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we were looking for!!! Had a great time enjoying a music festival at Hunter Mountain with friends and family. Convenience...would be an A+ in regards to Hunter Mountain. Just a short 4 miles from this property. Cozy...really great open floor plan that includes everyone with an added bonus of a beautiful wrap around porch. Comfortable...I walked into this house and said "I want this couch" which says it all! Clean, really clean and so nice to have so many bathrooms. Really a gem of a property! Holly, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and flexible. Overall A+

Beautiful Home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house so close to Hunter mountain and the restaurants in Tannersville. We did not even have to drive for dinner, we just walked. And the drive to Hunter Mtn is only 5 minutes. The house itself was stunning, with a great kitchen and lovely bedrooms. Could not have expected a better house! Everybody in our party was very impressed with the house and how well it was decorated. Holly, herself was very helpful and available to answer any all questions. Would definitely stay here again.

What a Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

What makes this place perfect was the way we were cared for. the home is beautifully decorated, but more importantly it is a cared for home. It is super clean The kitchen was spacious and provided everything we needed. The bedrooms were exceptional. What really made this stay extraordinary was the care and attention received from the owner. She really cared about our stay and made sure that I had whatever I needed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. A rare accommodation. Very, very beautiful home with luxury feel and country atmosphere. I plan to rent this home again and again. Thank you for taking such good care of us and giving us the space to have an amazing stay.

A very accommodating home

  • 5 of 5

This home was so spacious, clean and very accommodating. For the four times we have rented here in NY, this house was every ones favorite!! The nicest thing about it was, there was 6 of us (3 couples) and we each had a full sized bed with a bathroom in each bedroom. Many times three bedroom homes have a child's room with twin sized beds or bunk beds. This home had a third floor with 2 extra bedrooms for children. But the important feature we needed was 3 full sized beds. The front wrap around porch was very relaxing to sit out on. The whole house was very comfortable. It came with, pretty much everything you need!

Hunter Mountain
Car: recommended

There is a snow mobile rental in Haines Falls and trails at North Lake. Hunter Mountain is the best skiing in this region but Windham is also good and 20 minutes away from the house if you want to mix it up and ski both resorts. There are many festivals held at Hunter Mountain on the off season.

It is our home not an investment property, most people have been very considerate but I have been disappointed in the rare few and they will NOT be allowed to stay in the future.
