about the house: This is an 1800's boarding house remodeled for your comfort and to experience history! The House was the vacation resort in the Catskills. The 'Husband Train' once stopped here to drop off the husbands for the weekend while the family stayed all summer or winter season. The energy is great! The water and air purer than most! The country is soothing and fun. We are on an underground lake and enjoy the spring water for drinking and bathing. You will notice the difference in your health and stress level the very first day of your stay! Our little stream along the house provides soothing sound and beautiful setting while relaxing outside on our wrap around decking and comfy chairs. One of our largest decks is through the french doors from the country kitchen where you will find several comfortable tables and chairs & a couple of BBQ's to use.

Came here two weekends ago with a group of friends and had an amazing time!! We stayed here last year and loved it!!!! Everything was clean and nice the owners are great They were so accommodating and nice ! Even told us about activities to do outside of the house as well... Always a great time at the hunter mountain house and we can't wait to be back next year !!
This was my second year at the house. As last year, myself and everyone I was with had an awesome time. The accommodations for this house are unbelievable. The bedrooms are a perfect setup, the kitchen has everything you need and there is room to sit on the couch and watch television or sit near the bar and hangout/play billiards. Regardless of where you are in the house there is plenty of room. It is spacious and has so much to offer. The house is 15 minutes from Hunter mountain and about 30 minutes from Windam mountain. The house is in a great place and is very easy to get to. Dealing with Rich and Lorry (home owners) is a pleasure as well. They are very kind and easy to talk to and they are great with getting back to you. I would get a response to a question the day of or the following day. I would reccommend this house to anyone I know looking for a weekend get away or more, with a large group. I will be going back next year and many years to come.
Stayed two nights for a ski trip to Hunter mtn with a group of 15 people (ages 23+)
House - beautiful! Listing and pictures were accurate but the house is even better in person. kitchen and pool table were great. Clean, warm, lots of space, lots of sleeping room. Owners - responsive, friendly, and accommodating. Definitely recommend to others!
I organized a ski trip to Hunter Mountain with a group of 12 friends (age 25-30) and stayed in this house for 3 nights. We were looking for a comfortable place close to the mountain where we could all relax, cook and drink, and this was absolutely perfect. The house had plenty of space for everyone (bedrooms, living space) and was only a quick 10 minute drive from the slopes. Lorry and Rich were extremely responsive - at one point the internet stopped working, and Lorry had it up and running minutes after the issue was found. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to spend quality time with a group of family and/or friends.
Great Time! Thank You Lorry and Rich. We had a great stay. This house is definitely great for big groups and everyone loved the kitchen. We cooked up a storm in there. Overall Great Experience. Thinking of a summer trip up there to go zip lining.
The house is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of bringing a large group of people. The three nights that my friends and I stayed there were perfect. The kitchen is so absolutely. It has industrial size equipment and I cant forget the amount of seating in there also. Outside the kitchen is a patio just as big and with two enormous grills. Beyond the kitchen is the living room area which houses a large flat screen tv. Right next to the living room is the bar area and this is where all the fun happens.
Rich and Lorry are very accommodating and communicating with them prior to staying at the house was very easy. I can go on and on about this house but doing so will not do it justice. All I can say is that we will surely be back next year!
