FARMHOUSE, SUMMER/SKI RENTAL ON TROUT STREAM, NEAR WINDHAM, NY

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.

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

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.

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 House in Perfect Setting

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

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

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!

We were fortunate to find this great property at the last minute for a long weekend getaway. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 4 early teenage kids. Everyone enjoyed the house, very comfortable, very nicely decorated and well cared for. It's located in a nice spot, private and quiet without being too far from civilization (grocery store, restaurants, etc, 10-15 minutes away). Members of our group had diverse interests, ranging from avid fishermen to "I just want to read my book." Everyone was happy. This was our first trip to the Catskills, we'll definitely be back, and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again. Only complaint - gas grill was out of propane, didn't notice till the last minute. Meal turned out great, though, we wound up roasting our hot dogs over the campfire by the creek. Had a wonderful evening. Owners are very attentive and easy to communicate with via phone, text or email.

Let me start this review by stating how wonderful the owners of this house were, from answering questions in the most expedient fashion even before we booked the property, to assisting us when we forgot a piece of luggage at the house upon departure. My group of 6 adults (2 couples, 2 singles) and 2 children (ages 3 & 4) were delighted to find this home next to a serene stream, down a picturesque snowy road. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. The house was well stocked with most amenities (soap, toiletries, towels, detergent, etc.), bathrooms and bedrooms were immaculate and nicely equipped, and decor was charming. The house has no immediate neighbors, so we really felt like we were in the middle of nowhere (much-desired) while being about 10 minutes in either direction of Hunter or Windham (much-desired). Pictures of the house are accurate - the three upstairs bedrooms held us all, the downstairs bedroom is also great but a little on the noisy side for anyone without early rising children. The dining room was spacious and we cooked all meals in the home, including utilizing the gas grill, a great feature even with snow on the deck. Kids loved roasting marshmallows in the wood stove, playing outside in the snow and throwing rocks by the stream. Adults were appreciative of the cleanliness, cozy living area and kitchen. My only advice would be to try to arrive in daylight - the roads down to the house were a bit tricky in the dark but all was fine in the AM. We used the trails at both Hunter and Windham during our stay - both were close by and easy to find. We would definitely stay at this home again, the owners were lovely and made the house even lovelier. A great weekend!!!
