Hiking

The Hunter area makes a great 'home base' for hiking the Catskills. Whether you're hiking with family or friends, the beautiful northern Catskills have the trails -- and the scenery -- for you.

We have trailheads for hiking, motor cross and atvs just 2 min walk from our home. Two of the best locations for amazing day hikes are:

The Kaaterskill falls – this is the tallest two tier waterfall in New York State. The hike is moderate and is amazing. The hike itself takes about 1.5 hours, but lunch/dinner is well deserved after this hike. The falls are only 20 mins from our home.

North/South Lake – one of our favorite areas to visit is the North South Lake (NSL) area. NSL provides wonderful beaches for swimming, kayaking, incredible and vast network of hiking trails, breathtaking high elevation views, camping, fishing, and much much more. NSL is only 20 min away from our home.

Zipline and Canopy Tour

New York Zipline Adventure Tours will runs the longest and highest Zipline and Canopy Tours in North America at Hunter Mountain! Featuring over 5 miles of ziplines, these exhilirating tours will offer thrill levels from beginner, to moderate, up through the monster summit zip, reaching heights of over 600 feet above the ground. http://www.ziplinenewyork.com/

From our well-know German Alps Festival and International Celtic Festival to our free Oktoberfests, Microbrew and Wine Festival, TAP New York Craft Beer Festival, Mountain Jam festival, Taste of Country music festival, we have something for every taste.

Ride the Skyride to the summit of Hunter Mountain and enjiy the panoramic views overlooking the Northern Catskills and beyond. On a clear day, you can see the Green Mountain of Vermont, the Berkshires in Massachussetts and the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Golf

The legendary beauty of the Catskills makes the perfect backdrop for a round of golf. The mountains offer challenging courses unlike those found in the flatlands, adding another dimension to the game. Come play the beautiful courses of the Catskills, those situated in the mountains and those looking up at the beautiful peaks.

Dining

These are the near by towns, all of which offer excellent choices for Dining. Here are some of our favorites:

Deer Mountain Inn – Tannersville

At the entrance of Hunter Mountain, there is a wonderful local swimming spot that is open every day until dusk. There is a full time lifeguard on duty and a nice beach to sit and bag some rays while the kids enjoy jumping off the dock. North South lake (20 min drive) is also an amazing spot to swim in the giant beach covered lakes with mountain views. One of the near by water parks is Zoom Flume. It is about a 40 min drive and a great place to spend the day. You can also find great spa and swimming facilities at the Kaatskill Mountain Club at the resort only 5 minutes away.

A LOVELY GETAWAY CLOSE TO NYC

  • 5 of 5
“This is a nice getaway (only a little over two hours from NYC). The house is clean and nicely decorated. Seven of us stayed at this mountain home located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood. This bright, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is stylish, casual and comfortable. I just loved the fully-equipped kitchen, the comfy beds and the views of the surrounding woods through the many windows.

Andrew provided some great suggestions. The home is conveniently located next to outdoor adventures, we hiked Kaaterskill Falls (lovely), fished at North/South Lake (yes, we caught fish!), lunched/shopped at Tannersville (great pizza) and at shopped at Woodstock (quaint town).

I would definitely recommend this home for a getaway, whether you just want to hang around the house or venture outside to enjoy the Catskills.

By the way, I did receive my security deposit.

RENTERS BEWARE - SECURITY DEPOSIT SCAM

  • 1 of 5
I regretfully write that an otherwise pleasant stay has since been marred by the homeowner wrongfully withholding my security deposit and has failed to provide a response or explanation as to why it was withheld.
I booked and stayed at this house in early March this winter. My guests and I enjoyed a very nice ski weekend and found the house to be very warm and comfortable. I also found the homeowner to be very responsive in the time leading up to, during, and immediately following my stay. However, despite a follow-up message from the homeowner that my group and I were terrific guests welcome back any time, along with indications that a return of my security deposit would be forthcoming, the homeowner did not return any portion of my security deposit, nor has he responded to any of my numerous efforts to contact him seeking an explanation as to why the deposit was withheld.
The puzzling withholding of my security deposit along with the silence of the homeowner effectively doubled the cost of this weekend rental, making the trip much more expensive than initially expected. I have also had to deal with the frustrations of attempting to get in contact with the homeowner and also in filing a complaint with the HomeAway Security Department. If anyone is still even considering renting this property, I urge you to purchase the “Carefree Rental Guarantee” from HomeAway.

Owner's Response: I can assure anyone renting this house of which there have been many will receive any deposit funds taken as long the the property is left in its original condition. After check out, a review is done on the house and the funds are returned by check. A check was sent out to this renter. They apparently didn't receive it, as the first notice I received from this case was a charge back. If this renter were willing to reverse their case, I would be happy to issue another check via certified mail or refund it back directly to their credit card. Our only interest is to rent our beautiful house and do so with clarity, transparency, and honesty. This is the first incident of its kind for us, and we are certainly willing to do whatever needs to be done to make sure the renter receives their deposit back. The funds have been released to this renter and they are paid. We hope to avoid this experience again, so far, we have had really great renters with good communication from the onset.

A FANTASTIC PLACE FOR A FAMILY GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This place is exceptionally comfortable and fun. It was a perfect home base for our extended family ski trip. It is beautifully furnished, warm and elegant, and the lower level is built for family fun. The drum set, Foosball, darts, board games and video games made the perfect escape for all the cousin fun while us adults could sip wine around the cozy fire place. It is so close to the ski lifts that we actually got there and were ready to go before the lifts opened. We had so much fun we are already booking it again for next year!

BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS, A PERFECT GET AWAY.

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved our stay here. The home was perfect for our ski vacation. It was just as descibed and provided a great amount of space for our large group. The house offered many amenities including sheets and towel, which is a great space saver when packing for a winter trip. We enjoyed the large family dining table, great for dinners and game time. The downstairs area offered video games, foosball, and a dart board, which was a favorite of ours. Additionally, this area is what I consider a soundproof room! We were able to have an uninterrupted night sleep when others wanted to stay up much later. There is also a beautiful hot tub. Unfortunalely, mother nature didn't allow us to take advantage of it. Sub zero temperatures created some mechanical difficulties, but I look forward to a return trip and taking advantage of this amenity.
We unfortunately had a member of our group get a very serious injury, requiring a 4 day hospital stay. The owner, Andrew, couldn't have been any more helpful in offering all the assistance we needed, even offering his own vacation time in the house to accommodate us. We were so grateful for his kindness and always prompt response to any questions we had.
I would recommend this home.

YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

  • 5 of 5
GREAT GREAT GREAT place to stay! The house offers everything described...short distance to Hunter Mountain, plenty of "toys" for the kids, clean and the family was accommodating. The kids enjoyed the grounds (great little hill on the side of the house to sled, fire pit and amazing views) and the fusball table, drumset, xbox and toys the house provided. There was plenty of space ..four bedrooms, two baths, finished basement and a nice large dining room table that comfortably sat our families for meals. The host family was pleasant and provided "extras' that do not come with the average stay...we will definitely return!!
