About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Beautiful 3,000 sq ft 4 bedroom, 3 full bath contemporary chalet on private 3 acre property exactly halfway between Hunter and Windham (approx 2.5 miles from each) Great for access to both mountains! Breathtaking views of Hunter Mountain, on a private lake. New flat screen tv's in EVERY bedroom. Newly carpeted bedrooms. New luxury beauty rest mattresses in every bedroom! New dining room furniture and loving room set! Huge wrap around decks to enjoy barbecuing on the third floor deck, or some quiet time on the second floor outside the master bedroom.

About the house: fully furnished. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook great meals. Kitchen also has a dishwasher. Every bedroom is wired with digital cable. The house has a wireless network that can be accessed from all points of the house, and is even capable of getting internet access on the dock. In the living room is a 58' HDTV DLP television with DVD player. Master bedroom has California King size bed, a 32' Sony tv, and private sitting area, with own private deck looking out onto the mountains. Second Bedroom has a Queen size bed, 24' television, and direct access to first floor deck down to lake. Third bedroom has a queen size bed. Fourth bedroom has a queen size bed.

The house has a heated 2-car garage that has electric garage door openers (great for those frigid winter months) and direct access into the house from the garage.

About the property: Driveway is paved and flat, so there is no worry about cars getting stuck in or out when the snow starts falling! There is a great babbling brook on the property that runs into the lake. During warmer months, the lake is great for fishing; it's stocked with Catfish, Trout, Bass, Bluegills, Sunnies, and more! It's also a great lake for swimming and afternoon fun! Approximately 2 hours from NYC, off exit 20 on the NYS Thruway coming from the South, or Exit 21 coming from the North. Gas grill and rowboat.

Great Ski House, Great Location, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Liked everything about the house for our ski weekend. We've rented a few houses over the years and this one was by far the nicest in it's price range. Plenty of space for our group to feel comfortable in. Woodburning stove/fireplace was nice and the big open feel from each of the three floors to the outside views of the mountain were EXCELLENT. Also, close to everything yet very private. I'd recommend this to any group that wants to ski Hunter Mountain.

its really bad experience . House condition is too bad . Sofa looks like 10 year old and if you sit there you will feel pain ... Living room floor was too dirty . Carpet was dirty . Utensil and kitchen items are very less and dirty . Very limited toilet paper .

Owner not response anything .

Most of the chairs are broken and you may fall down anytime . Wall is broken .

One Room heater was not working .Inform owner but she was not response quickly .

On website she not mention Security deposit and cleaning fee but she will charge it ( she should mention).

Getting return back is night mirror . After one month after many call she return money .

I will not not suggest .

Except one room all others room is very small and bed are not fit 3 person ( including kid).

Most of the room part is broken .

House and Property are Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We are a bunch of friends from college that traveled here from the greater nyc area for a long weekend. We arrived to a stunning house and property. We have stayed at places before that feel too lived in, dingy, etc. This house was everything opposite of what we wanted not to have. It felt very open with all of the doors to the mountain and lakeside of the house. It was spotless. There are these nice, distressed looking boards to each of the heads of the beds consistent in each bedroom. It was a really nice touch. The whole house had a very welcoming feel to it. We made a campfire in the yard each night and walked over to the little creek that feeds into the lake. It was all just what we needed and we were all able to fully enjoy the weekend and catch up with each other. We had our security deposit back as well about 3-4 days after checking out. (Thank you!)

Owner's Response: A woman in your group that booked the house, is the same person that sent the deposit to us. Back 1.5 years ago when you stayed at the house, she inquired when the deposit would be sent as she needed to get the deposit back to you and you were in Puerto Rico, I believe is where she said you were. I told her she paid the deposit so it would be returned to the same person by which it was sent to us. And that she would have to make the arrangements with you for you to get it back. She received this 1.5 years ago within one week after checking out. I have sent you the screenshot of this and yes, I have told you to speak with the woman that booked the house and she is the one that sent the deposit. You are not owed anything from us on our end as we have long since fulfilled our requirement to return the security deposit within accordance of the agreement. Thank you.

Great place but no deposit refund

  • 2 of 5

The place is great for winter or summer getaways. The only thing we had a problem with was getting out deposit back. Which after almost a year later we still haven't received. Called owners a few times and they say they will call back and never do.

Very Nice Experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this lovely home this past weekend and the lake as it was nice enough to use the rowboat. The only thing that we did not see were the garage remotes. Either way we didn't use the garage except for the disposal of the garbage. We hope to do business with these owners again and we recommend this house to any prospective renters, it was a very nice experience. Thank you.
