Local Hunter: The Town of Hunter, formed in 1813, has two incorporated villages, Hunter and Tannersville and the hamlets of Haines Falls & Elka Park. Hunter encompasses some of the most beautiful scenery in the Catskills. Famous for its waterfalls, views and vistas, Hunter was the focus of early literary figures and the artists of the Hudson River School of Painters. Steeped in history, it offers nine local golf courses, first class restaurants, hiking trails, mountain biking, fishing streams, camping, swimming, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, and the most spectacular display of autumn foliage in New York State.
Winter Ski Season: The closest 'big mountain' to metro NY. A brand new learning center makes Hunter a great place to learn to ski, snow-tube, snowshoe and/or snowboard. The tubing park offers all the fun of the old fashioned sledding without the hike back up to the top of the hill! With three lifts and up to 12 chutes, each over 1000' feet in length, there's enough fun here for the entire family.

Absolutely loved this place!! It was clean, spacious, and right on the mountain. My kids were so happy with the outdoor heated pool, it was snowing out and they still swam all day and then played in the arcade room. The house is stocked with board games so there is always something to do. I seriously didn't even want to give a review because I want to keep this place as my hidden getaway but honestly I def recommend this to anyone even if you have a big family there is space for everyone.
Spacious clean condo close to the slopes and a very short drive for everything else.. My family had a great time skiing and enjoyed the pool and hot tub at the nearby Kaatskill Mountain Club..Dealing with the ownet was a pleasure and all my questions were answered quickly!
We and 2 of our kids stayed at the property over President's Weekend. It was very spacious, comfortable and convenient. Almost everything we needed was provided in the kitchen and bedrooms. Overall, Kevin and Jamie were very responsive owners and the condo was lovely. We were stuck inside a lot (one of the kids was sick, plus is was unbearably cold on Sunday), but we had lots of games to play -- cards, chess and other board games -- which were plentiful, excellent Wifi throughout the condo, and a flat-screen TV with DVD player. My 10 year-old especially loved the chess table on the 2nd floor, which motivated him to learn how to play chess. We did have some problems that were mostly later resolved. The weather was extremely frigid and windy, even for the Catskills, and the pipes in the master bath shower/tub were frozen when we arrived, and the fireplace did not work when we got there. The condo was very cold downstairs (lower 60's), but extremely warm upstairs (upper 70's). We called the owners about the problems when we arrived, and they had someone come first thing in the morning to fix the fireplace and give us advice on regulating the temperature differential upstairs vs downstairs (ie closing the upstairs vents), which helped a lot. He also turned on the tub, which miraculously worked for him, but it stopped working again once it got very cold that night and did not run for the rest of our stay. We just used the other shower, and all the other sinks and water sources worked fine. The bottom step of the condo outside was loose when we arrived, and finally fell off, which made navigating the outside stairs precarious with all the snow. Finally, the closest lift to the condo was not running, and because of all the snow, we could not access the bridge that went to the nearest trail, so it was definitely not a "ski-on/ski-off" situation for us. We had to drive over to the main lodge and park with everyone else to go skiing; a 2-minute drive, but not what we expected. My overall rating for this place is still very high, because I felt that most of the problems were beyond the owners' control, and were not typical, and our stay was very pleasant and comfortable once we got the kinks worked out.
This Condo is an excellent choice for a ski weekend. The condo if basically new built in 2006 and his well kept. The condo is extremely convenient due to its proximity to Hunter mountain (basically trail side). You can just grab your gear and walk over to the slopes. In addition, the owners were flexible and friendly. I would definitely book this condo.
Kevin and Jami were fantastic hosts. We spent two nights here during MLK weekend. The condominium is a 5 minute walk to the slopes and had everything that we needed for the weekend. It had plenty of pots and pans; and was well stocked (e.g., paper towels, detergent, dishwasher, garbage bags, linens). Hosts were very response via phone and email.
Would highly recommend.
We had a great time there. Very spacious nice living area. The owner was helpful, and the pool at the resort was a good plus too. Great place for a couple with children. Was able to put children to sleep on second floor in separate bedroom. There was also a very good cable tv package. The only downside was that the cleaning crew didn't clean it spotless before we came. I would ask the owner to make sure they do better job next time.
