About Matthew Wizeman

We are native New Yorkers from the big city but with many years of Catskills experience. We love the getaway and we love the festivals, sporting events, skiing, vivid fall colors and the great restaurants of Windham.

Matthew Wizeman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Matthew Wizeman chose Windham

Our family has been going to the Catskills since 1968. We spent our summers on Hunter Mountain for over 20 years. When my parents sold their place in Hunter we sought a property close to Hunter but even closer to Windham, which has transcended itself into one of the premier family resorts on the East Coast. We wanted the seclusion and serenity of quintessential Catskills but also enough things to do to keep our vacation time exciting. When we bought the cabin it was a very simple house and to a large extent it still is, but we added a back deck, a shed for of our action gear, a fire pit, new gutters, and a landscape overhaul. The property is now designed for a great getaway with plenty of peace and quiet, but with plenty to do as well. We hope you enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is minutes from both Hunter and Windham. There is ope space to relax and play. The fire pit and back deck provide unique sanctuaries for those looking to get away a brief respite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much. I have you on my favorites for when we would like to return. We are thinking maybe mid year in 2013. Question though.... At what time of the year do you see the most deer? We went out everynight to take pictures and we saw 46 in a half an hour! Can you believe it? They were walking up the road like dogs. We loved to see them. Can't wait to return!

A perfect ski cabin between two resorts

  • 5 of 5

This adorable 3 BR cabin was the perfect lodging solution for our weekend ski trip. The house was clean and included everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The owner was very hospitable and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect

Great place to stay I definently recommend this little cabin. I suited our needs perfectly. When we arrived it was dark and snowy, and I couldn't find the key cause i vaugly remembered what matthew had said over the phone, so I gave him a call and answered right away, stayed on the phone until I had found it. Once we got in it was very clean, and accommodating. When the other half of our party had arrived they had just fit in the driveway. We drove up in 2 full sized trucks, the driveway was a little small but it did its job unfourtunatly you can't park on the side of the road because of a small ditch. Until later on the next day is when we saw the yard considering that we left early in the morning and it was still dark, the yard was large with a fire pit and nicely kept. Making dinner was a little tough but definently doable, half of us were over 6' tall. The house was filled with pots, pans, plates, and untenciles. Overall it was an awesome stay had phone/data service everywhere in the house and outside no cable or satalite but we had brought movies. Oh and there's a little diner on 23 in widham where we went for lunch Saturday/sunday, great food and service.

Unbelievable colors!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cabin in the winter and loved the skiing but we were surprised at how incredible the foliage was. We came up from NYC and stopped at the Walk Across the Hudson and then stopped at Kaaterskills Falls. The scenery along the way alone is worth the trip in the fall. We love the new fire pit. The Frisbee golf in the back was really cool. What a great little getaway.

A Hidden Gem in the Mountain....

  • 5 of 5

We had another great stay at this beautiful Quaint Cabin and we couldn't be more pleased with our visit. The home has been upgraded since my last stay, with an additional bedroom and it sure was a nice addition. We went snow tubing during the day and came home to relax in the evening. The kids are able to play safely outside since the property is fairly large. The owners offer quick responses and are available with any questions... We love this gem of a place...
