About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Ideal for up to 8 adults and 4 children, this fully refurbished 90 year old home has the old world charm of a log cabin but with all the modern amenities you will need … plus an amazing view from the large deck.

Situated conveniently between the ski slopes of Windham (5 minutes) and Hunter (10 minutes), the home is ideal in the winter for skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers. In the other seasons, there are many hiking and mountain biking trails, golf courses, and nearby lakes that offer canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. And of course, in the autumn, the foliage is spectacular.

The nearby towns of Windham, Hunter, and Tannersville offer great restaurants and art galleries galore, all within a few minutes drive.

After all this activity, relax on the large deck and enjoy the view, roast marshmallows around the fire pit, barbecue on the covered patio, enjoy a game of pool, or just unwind in the hot tub.

There is plenty of space to spread out. Apart from a King bedroom, three Queen bedrooms and a finished attic with 4 twin beds, you also have the use of the large 'great room' with dining and lounge areas, another sitting room with stone fireplace, and a modern kitchen with separate breakfast nook.

**Please note: for major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and the 4th of July) we will not be accepting reservations for less than a week. For certain holidays and the summer music festivals, we require a minimum reservation of 3 nights or more. Please feel free to contact us if you have a question about the weekend of interest, and view the "Rates" tab for more information on our pricing during peak and off-peak season.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

We came in for a quick weekend for my wife's 50th birthday. Everything was as shown in the pictures. We even had a bonus of the 3rd bathroom being redone where the pictures did not reflect that. We Had 12 people the youngest being 14. We were very comfortable in the great room and plenty of room in the dining room as well. Would highly recommend this if you're looking for some time in beautiful upstate New York.

This house was amazing just the views it self were unbelievable. The house was clean it had everything you need and more. The pool table

was fun & hot tub was so nice. Angie was great getting back to me right

away with all my questions. Had little trouble with the coffee maker so for

future renters bring instant just in case but we resolve it. I would rent this

house again in a heart beat. Loved it & would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks Angie & Garrett for letting us enjoy your home.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this home

The house is ample, with two living areas, and an expansive wood deck with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains

Our party had 8 adults, a four year old and a one year old.

There was plenty of room for all to move about.

The town of Tannersville is a short distance away with a full grocery store and several good restaurant options

Also close by are good hiking trails, some level for the kids to handle, and others more rugged for adults.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Gorgeous views, really close drive to Windham Ski Mountain. Owners are fast with email response. The entire process of renting the property was smooth. I rented the home for my group of 10 for a weekend in January and we had a great time. My group was in our lower 30s, all couples, some married. One thing I would note is that the attic loft with the 4 single beds is connected through another bedroom. Just something to note when setting up sleeping arrangements. Lots of driveway space, and although the main dining table seats 8, there are other little tables in the living room and an additional one by the window, so plenty of seating. House is pretty stocked with basic seasonings for food so you don't have to bring all of that-- we did unnecessarily. There are lots of old games around too that old renters probably leave behind. We all had a great time and would definitely rent again!

Better late than never, but this was great!

  • 4 of 5

I want to first say I am sorry this review is so late. Now, my cousin's and our significant others/spouse/plus 1's have a retreat every year and this was the house of choice.

It was awesome! The views, how clean it was, the location, the things to do, everything was great. We never left, my kids (1 year old girl and 2 month old boy at the time) had a blast with space to roam and not knock everything over!

The only reason this did not get 5 stars is because the hot tub at one point turned on and wouldn't turn off. We did resolve this (obviously)

The owners were awesome and available for questions anytime we reached out!

I loved it and wouldn't have any questions about renting it again if we are in the neighborhood!
