This is a beautiful, private and spacious home that we call Casa Montaña which translates to Mountain House.
The house is surrounded by gorgeous mountain views and is set on 2 acres on a long private road. There is a large multi level sun deck in the back of the house, with an outdoor shower, and a screened in furnished gazebo. The front has a long balcony with spectacular mountain views. There are plenty of quiet spaces and nooks where you can relax and read a good book or take a little nap.
Casa Montaña was built to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while being indoors all year long but especially during the winter months. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while birdwatching cardinals, hummingbirds, blue jays and other gorgeous birds all while inside the popular four seasons room. At night, you can star gaze from inside or out while you enjoy a glass of wine or a hot cocoa by a roaring fire.
Cooks will enjoy cooking in our fully equipped kitchen that includes a great cookbook collection and an open dining area over looking the back decks. The kitchen has a 12 foot counter where you can watch the cook prepare dinner or cook together.
Take a walk on the property and you will encounter wild flowers, large pines, and stunning 360 degree mountain views and if you're lucky, maybe you'll see a family of deer, rabbits or wild turkeys. There are a several peaceful spots to sit with a book along the rock wall and a small creek to enjoy during warm months. In the winter, snow shoe around the property or cross country ski.
There are 3 en suite bedrooms with brand new comfortable beds and pillow top mattresses. All linens and towels are provided. The master suite has a soaking tub and a queen size bed with an amazing view of giant pine trees and you can watch the sunrise right from the bed!

In addition to that, there is a large Sun room with a queen sized bed and feather top mattress that uses a portable heater in winter months and portable fans during the warmer months.

There is a unique feeling of seclusion here at Casa Montaña, but the rest of the world is just a short distance away. We are near Windham and Hunter Mountain Ski Slopes (16 - 20 miles). You can go antiquing in Hudson or head to Woodstock for a great lunch or dinner. The light house in Saugerties is nearby and you can Kayak or take a dip in the river while exploring the light house in the warmer months.
Our home is very tranquil and you can truly unwind here with all the comforts of home.
Catering is available upon request. For an additional fee, you can have the refrigerator filled with your favorite foods or fresh home cooked meals or maybe a welcoming cheese and fruit platter with a glass of bubbly.

Juliean purchased this chalet in 2010
The Catskill region provided us with the peace and tranquility we were searching for. The house speaks for itself! The location is close enough for a short weekend stay yet far enough to come and stay for a week and feel like you are miles and miles away on vacation.
We are often told our home is very special and we like to think so as well. Come and see for yourself!
You can enjoy relaxing, cooking, reading meditating, Yoga (nearby) Bird watching, and going for long walks in the woods. Enjoy a nice weekend away from the city alone or with family and friends. Go swimming, hiking, antiquing, skiing and other snow activities, dining and exploring, or Do absolutely nothing!
This was our 2nd time we have stayed at la montana and this time was just as great. The kids were able to mountain bike within 5 minutes and we liked the access to the fresh produce stands. The little ones enjoyed the beach at the nearby lake. With the gazebo there was peace when needed. . We will go back in the future. .
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend alone and we experienced exactly what we wanted -- absolute peace and quiet, beautiful country mountain views, a beautifully-equipped kitchen and nicely-decorated living space. I loved the four season room the most and read and read and wrote. We never saw another person or car, yet once we understood our location, found it convenient to all in both Catskill and Hudson. I enjoyed walking around the house both indoors and outside, and found it also the perfect space for meditation and yoga. My husband found a good golf course and enjoyed the four season room and also the outdoor back patio, where he found the best view. I recommend this house to singles or couples who appreciate quiet and tranquility in the upstate country mountains.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Montana. The house was very clean and had all the amenities. The kitchen is spacious and the outside pagoda a lovely spot to sit and read. There is a large grassy area to the side of the property, which we didn't have time to enjoy but looks very inviting for a picnic in good weather. Each bedroom had its own bath, which was a priority for us because we knew we would all be getting dressed for a wedding at the same time. All in all, we would definately return to Casa Montana -- six adults without any complaints! That in itself is amazing!
My plan for this getaway was to have uninterrupted time to finish a project which was due within the following week. I arrived to a beautifully appointed home. After exploring the rooms I choose one of two rooms which faced the mountains. I woke up to a gorgeous foggy mountain view, I laid in bed watching the fog dissipate high up the mountains which allowed the sun to break through, what a site to see. I decided to have breakfast in the upper deck enjoying the morning breeze. The silent was broken by the sound of birds. I strolled around the property exploring the many fruit trees and beautiful flowers, gardening is one of my favorite things to do. I discovered the outside shower, and I did it, the property is so secluded and private; no one could see but the birds. I loved it. The gazebo was beautifully set as a place to relax and meditate, The front room was another amazing room to sit back and enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains and also to watch the wild life. I saw chip monks, bunnies, wild turkey and the best ever a flight of at least 20 hummingbirds this was amazing. This home is exactly what I envision to have as a vacation and future retirement home. I would highly recommend this home and plan on returning. The one drawback was that with all the beautiful views, the comfortable rooms, I spent my time relaxing and recharging I didn't do what I was intending which was to finish my project. I would highly recommend this home to others and will plan on returning. I enjoyed this home as if it were my own. Thank you for opening your home to me.
My wife and I regularly hike and camp in the Catskills, so with parents coming to visit our three month old baby, we thought this property might be nice for a weekend getaway from the city. It was absolutely perfect. The house was fabulous, with all of the amenities we needed. We spent plenty of time in the kitchen and on the deck, but the gazebo and four season room were our favorite places to hang - really cool rooms to just chill. The property location was very accessible to popular sights, hiking trails and other activities in the Catskills. My dad loved road biking along the country roads in the area, while my wife and I were we were pleasantly surprised to have some incredible singletrack mountain biking trails less than five miles away. The outdoor shower was awesome and refreshing after a ride. We have nothing but positive things to say about this property and the owner. We had a great weekend and look forward to staying here again.
Very private location with an incredible view. Clean, great amenities, and plenty of room. Wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces for gatherings. I was amazed at the panoramic views from the multiple outdoor decks and the bedrooms. Perfect for a weekend of nothing but relaxation, yet close enough to activities. Highly recommended.
