Overview

Windham Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Anytime of the year, the house is available for two day, weekly or monthly stays. It sits on a tranquil, 27 acre former farm and is conveniently located just six miles from both Hunter and Windham mountains. Your country escape for the skier, golfer, trout fishermen or growing family awaits you. There are fields, walking trails, mountain views and an abundance of wildlife for one to see on the property. If skiing is your thing, this rental is perfect for the entire family.

Outside of the ski season, there are three nearby golf courses so all golfers, bring your clubs! If you simply prefer to unwind, the over-sized country porch is perfect for relaxing and entertaining guests. Fun filled days transition to late afternoons and early evening on the beautiful porch, enjoying a cocktail and great food. Wildlife such as turkey, deer, rabbits and ducks can be appreciated by all. The rambling brook makes for a great night's sleep or for a carefree nap stream side or on the porch. Visit during the winter months and enjoy sitting around the wood stove with that hot cup of chocolate. This makes for a perfect break from a cold winter's day and fun in the snow.

The house is an 1856 post and beam farmhouse typical of the era. It has been fully restored with special attention to period details.

The first floor consists of a mud room with an oak bench and brick flooring, a lovely country kitchen, a large living room with wood burning stove, a comfortably sized dining room and a small additional bedroom. Additionally, a washer / dryer room, for those extended stays, is located right off the first floor bathroom. Wide plank floors throughout and the wood beams in the house have been fully exposed for that pure colonial look. The bathroom has a large, claw foot tub from the early 20th century that has been restored. It makes for that perfect, hot bath with some rich, sea salts to relax and rejuvenate one's inner self.

The second floor consists of three bedrooms that overlook the apple trees and fields of the property. A second floor bathroom is a must and this one has been nicely renovated. The house sleeps eight comfortably so it can be shared by one large family or two smaller families.

About Sofia Sinaheris Rivera

My husband and I purchased this property in 2001. We have done a complete renovation over the last nine years. We paid special detail to maintaining it's colonial look with exposed beams, claw foot tub, antique farmhouse sink and a large country porch.

Sofia Sinaheris Rivera purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Sofia Sinaheris Rivera chose Windham

We chose the area of the Northern Catskills because of it's close proximity to World Class skiing at Hunter and Windham mountains. It's only 2.5 hours from NYC which is ideal for weekend trips. We especially liked the house and property because it sits on the East Kill Creek which is a trout fed stream. It has many swimming holes to swim in. There are three golf courses within 10 minutes. There are an abundance of hiking trails in and around the property. There are great restaurants and bars serving a variety of foods including Italian, French, Mexican and a micro brewery in Windham. There is even a local vineyard which has weekend wine tasting available.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Fresh water swimming on the property. Local skiing is within 10 minutes. Rolling fields, mountain views and walking / hiking trails are plentiful. Sipping a morning or early afternoon coffee on the front porch overlooking the fields and stream. Barbecuing on the porch at night while under the stars. Star gazing and viewing the Milky Way galaxy.

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great stay this weekend. House was just as advertised, clean, stocked and Sofia and Sean even had the house nice and warm for our arrival as we were arriving around 9pm with 3 small kids. Speaking of kids, house is equipped to hose families with small children as they have baby equipment available (crib, high chair, toys etc). Overall great place, and conveniently located. Thanks Sofia & Sean.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 3 couples for a new years eve ski/snowboard trip for 4 nights and we had a blast! The house is about a 9 minute drive from Windham, and probably about the same to Hunter. The kitchen is well equipped with pots/pans/utensils, etc. There was plenty of clean linens, and plenty of space in all the bedrooms. We loved the wood stove/fireplace, which kept the place super toasty. Sofia was extremely responsive, and the key pickup/drop off was a breeze. I would definitely recommend this property, and hope to have a chance to stay again!

Incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us went for two days last weekend and were all sad to leave. House is clean, secluded and truly amazing. We had 4 couples with us and all had a great time. The stream in the front of the house was beautiful and beside a relaxing fire pit. Sean and Sofia were very helpful and efficient in the booking process/returning security deposit. House was clean and true to the pictures. Small town close by was a great activity for couple hours. Very close to hunter mountain so we may book again in the winter. 2 thumbs up. Thanks Sean and Sofia!

Great House in Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was clean, comfortable,well laid out, and cozy. We were two adults three kids and a dog and the house was perfect. Being under 15 mins to either Hunter or Windham made our ski weekend easy and efficient. The kitchen was great for home cooked meals. The property was nice to explore and the dog found the area the perfect playground. The owners were very helpful and attentive. Easy holiday retreat for an active family.

Perfect spot for a family wknd

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and dog recently stayed at this wonderful, clean and comfy home. It was in the perfect spot, close enough to town to grab a bite or do some shopping or activities. But also far enough away where we felt isolated and could enjoy the beautiful property and share a glass of wine on the porch. I would highly recommend this place for any family or large group, it's spacious, clean and had all the essentials you need. We felt right at home here and found it tough to leave.

Secluded Country Home

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter, myself and 9 yr old grandson recently spent 4 days at this house. It was awesome!

Very secluded and quiet. The house was extremely clean and everything we needed was

provided. The stream running through the property was a special treat.

We spent most of out time down there, exploring and swimming, although it

Is not very deep. Didn't see any fish in the stream, but there is some great trout fishing

about 1/2 a mile down the road on the Kaaterskill. Excellent hiking nearby also, and close to Hunter and Windham.

Enjoyed watching the deer and the young bear eating the apples from the apple tree in the yard.

I would recommend this house to anyone that wants to get away from it all

and enjoy the peace and quiet and a great time!
