Impeccable, clean, convenient

If you want your money's worth please stay at this house. Not only was the house ridiculously supplied with every ammenity imagined :-), it was clean, decor was a great ecclectic mix, the open space plan is a dream to spend with loved ones, and JoAnn ran everything smoothly from first email to getting deposit back. Everything was uncomplicated. Alot better than other places I have stayed in Hunter. Will come back again. (she also gives discounts if you a a returning customer!) I am so glad I read the I am paying it forward.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a week in this wonderful home. It’s truly impeccable—in comfort, amenities, ambience and location. You could tell every detail was well thought out. Electronics – from WI-FI, to Sirius satellite radio to Surround Sound – it went on and on. As an adult, I enjoyed the fact that the playroom, pool table and games were all downstairs allowing the kids to raiser a ruckus while keeping the upstairs living room quiet and cozy! As a gourmet cook, I have always been disappointed in rental kitchens that pretend to be furnished. This kitchen is furnished with every imagineable gadget, pot, knife and colander you could ever need – and enough cutlery and plates for a seated dinner for at least 10. Plus the gas cooktop and electric oven making cooking a breeze! I also loved the fact that while I cooked I was still able to socialize with my group and even got a few of them to help me out! The view from every window was stunning, the interior decorating was beautiful and the beds & linens are outstanding. The owner, Joann., made the process simple and easy and proved to be quite accommodating to our needs and requests. Simply awesome. I was particularly tickled that the house library had several of my favorite books & movies and one book I was currently reading! We are already planning our return. Highly, highly recommended. Thank you again for an amazing vacation!

A beautiful chalet in a great location!

A beautiful cozy cabin well-kept and well-equipped. There were eight of us and we all enjoyed the accommodations. The kitchen is great and JoAnn has made available everything needed to cook a gourmet meal.
The location is great; not more than 5 miles away from Hunter Mountain. Although it snowed while we were there, the roads were plowed promptly.

beautiful spacious and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on Friday night and found the cabin even better than the pictures portrayed . We were a large crowd of six adults and 4 kids but everyone had a bed to sleep. The place was very clean and stocked with those last minute kind of things you always forget during a trip. Great place and great time.

My group and I stayed at this while attending an event at Hunter Mt.

This house was gorgeous. It was exactly as described and better. It was clean, very well maintained, and had every amenity we needed. The decor was beautiful. If i could, I'd pick the house up and transport it to my home town to live in it.

Joanne provided exceptional customer services from our first inquiry through the return of our deposit.

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a really special place to stay!

Lovely Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a lovely weekend stay at this beautiful home. The description of the home, its amenities, location etc. were all spot on. The home is beautifully and comfortably furnished. There was not a single thing we could think of that wasn't furnished. The property is extremely well-maintained and the home was immaculate when we arrived. The owners, Scott and JoAnn were a pleasure to work with. You can tell they really want you to enjoy their home and the area. We found the binder which listed just about every activity in the area most helpful and the list of neighborhood restaurants was a godsend.
We spent most of our time talking and enjoying a glass of wine on the deck, but found time to walk at the nearby lake and take in the Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest. We enjoyed a lovely German meal at the Swiss Chalet and were glad we knew ahead of time that reservations were a must.
I would not hesitate to stay here again!

There is something for everyone to do!

You can walk to the snowmobile rental place and sledding hill! There is also a cross country ski resort just five minutes away.

** Spring/Summer/Fall Activities – This time of year offers unlimited possibilities. You can literally hike & bike right from our front door. The marked hiking trail system in the area is amazing! We include trail maps at the house that will enable you to explore some pretty cool spots. The closest and actually the best in the area are within 2 miles of the house - Kaatterskill Falls (highest waterfall in the state - a must see sight!), North Lake/South Lake (offers swimming, boat rentals i.e. kayaks, canoes, row boats, fishing and amazing hiking!), The Escarpment Trail (provides panoramic views of the Hudson River and on a clear day 4-states), the former site of the historic Catskill Mountain House, an abandoned (but restored!) train station and more.

Visit Hunter Mountain and try out their new ZIPLINE system, mountain bike down their trails (lift serve access) or enjoy a relaxing ride on their sky ride (chair lift). They also have a host of music festivals year round.

There are plenty of golf courses to choose from, driving range/miniature golf, horse back riding, fly fishing, tubing the Esopus River, paint ball, wineries, festivals, Catskill Game Farm, Howe Caverns and so much more...

** Antique and Art Lovers - You'll find treasures galore with Woodstock, Saugerties, Tannersville, Catskill (Thomas Cole House) and Hudson all within close proximity. A wide-array of classes and activities are available to children, teens and adults at Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts.

** Relaxation - The Catskill Cabin provides plenty of indoor & outdoor private, cozy spots to relax & unwind. Curl up with a good book, enjoy breathtaking mountain views, or snuggle by the fire.
