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 living 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. The 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 down 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 the lake. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. The 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 kayaks provided.

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.

House needs improvements

  • 2 of 5

Our group was disappointed with the house this year. This is our second time coming to this property. The house had no deck table and only 2 usable chairs. On the first morning we found out there was also no coffee maker. Very shocking when your counting on a nice cup of coffee. We had to go out to buy a table and coffee maker. We donated the coffee maker to the house FYI.

There also seems to be some type of mildew or mold on the lower levels. Everyone in our group had trouble breathing at night. The house also had some unfinished repairs to the interior which was not inviting.

On the plus side the pond was beautiful and there are 2 kayaks on the dock for use. The owner also added some living room furniture which was nice.

Family vacation, 4th of July weekend

  • 4 of 5

This property was a pleasant setting for our long weekend family vacation. It has more than enough common space, and four rooms that fit our group (three couples, a toddler and a dog). The pictures on the site are accurate.

The view is beautiful, the weather was perfect. The deck is huge, but could use more outdoor furniture. The pond is not huge, but has a lot of fish (caught four decent size bass), and is quiet and peaceful. Went kayaking (included with the rental) and swimming too, which was nice.

It seems like a few changes were made by the owner to the property since the reviews from a few months ago. Still a few minor repairs need to be made, and the AC in the master bedroom needs work, but the house is not run-down or unsafe as the other reviews suggest. It's not a hotel-quality ski lodge, but a lived-in, fairly maintained seasonal home.

Did not have issues communicating with owner (responded within minutes to inquiries pre- and during trip). Welcome packet provided with detailed instructions and information. Special requests were accommodated. No issues with security deposit, since owner did not charge it.

Not a great value

  • 2 of 5

It might have been a great value a long time ago, but we think it was over priced. Pictures in website were out dated (at least for our visit, didn't check now), heating didn't work in some areas.

Took a long time to receive deposit, and only after trying to contact the owner for multiple times.

Not what it is represented to be

  • 1 of 5

Beware if you are thinking about renting this property.

1) The premises were not clean:

a. Stains on rugs

b. Stains on walls

c. Holes in bedroom door on bottom level and well as non-functioning closet doors

d. Dirty oven

e. Dirty dishwasher

2) The premises were not up to par in terms of function and a safety hazard on the living room/dining room deck

a. The window in the living room could not be closed as the window lever did not work. We had to go out on the steps and push the window closed with a long handled broom in order to close the window.

b. The shower head on the bottom level fell off as soon as the water was turned on.

c. The shower door on the mid level would not open so we had one operable shower in the house.

d. The coffee maker did not work

e. The trash bins were overloaded so we had to cart all of our trash away.

f. Multiple nails were protruding on the living/dining room deck which were a safety

hazard for children

3) The house did not provide basics, such as bath mats, paper towels, bars of soap, that would be expected considering the rental rate.

4) Don't expect any of your security deposit returned within 10 days according to the agreement.

5) I tried to reach the person who rented the property to me and communicated with me just prior to arrival. When we arrived, we were having trouble locking the door and she never called back. Subsequently, she indicated her cell phone was turned off for the month of February and I should have contacted the person named in the agreement. I wonder if the person named in the agreement would have answered since he has not honored his agreement to return the security deposit minus the cleaning fee. Finally, the owners give new meaning to "cleaning" fee! Linda 3/18/2017
