We are retired educators who love skiing , golfing and the greater out doors.

Penny Besculides purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

We have been coming to the Catskills since the 1950's. We love the fresh air, mountain amenities and quality of life this area has to offer .After years of renting our family purchased the main house in 1968. Over the past four decades our family came for winter skiing and summer recreation. In 2011 we decided to add this guest house so others may partake in building their own family memories.

We especially love sitting on our deck with our early morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine and watching natural beauty at its best! Whether it's the twice daily family of deer eating the apples from our tree next to the pond, the flock of turkeys crossing our stream or the spectacular sunset over Windham Mountain, we are in awe of the beauty surrounding us.

GREAT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Our family, husband, wife and 2 grown childeren stayed here for a birthday ski week-end. We were very pleased with the house, large, clean and it was 5 minutes to ski Windam. We cooked most of our meals here and had everything we needed. There's a deck off the back which overlooks a nice yard with a view of the ski sloops in the background. It was a great fit for our family with room to spare.

PERFECT WINDHAM RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We (2 families -- 4 adults, 3 kids (11,12,13) just got back from a wonderful long ski weekend at this immaculate, modern, well-equipped cottage. Penny was helpful from the day we first made an inquiry, promptly e-mailing back answers to all of our questions, and making our decision to book here an easy one. The house was easy to get to, even on those notoriously dark Catskills side streets. We were delighted from the minute we arrived. The heat was already on (we had told Penny of our arrival time; she was kind enough to let us check in early since no one was staying there right before us), and everything was spotless, with modern appliances, comfortable beds and furniture, and cheerful decor. The grounds were beautiful as well, and the kids had as much fun exploring the creek and pond areas as they did skiing. The kitchen and bathrooms were even equipped with condiments and toiletries! It was only an 10-minute drive to the Windham ski area and a 5-minute drive to Windham's cute downtown area.

But the icing on the cake for us was when we informed Penny that we'd be checking out early in the morning before we left for skiing, she told us we could come back and shower and change afterwards, since there was no one staying there right after us. We have NEVER had owners be so flexible about the checkout before. It was such a pleasure to not be rushed to pack the car early in the morning just to have everything sit in the ski area parking lot all day and then change into cold clothes after a long day of skiing before another long drive home.

Without a doubt, this was the best Catskills rental house we have ever stayed in (and we've rented several), and we will be hanging on to Penny's contact information for future trips!

ENJOYABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were very happy to have rented this home for the month of August. It was a great visit to the mountains and exactly what we were looking for in getting away for a quiet and relaxing time. The house was immaculate, very charming and comfortable for us. We enjoyed the sight of deer from the porch and our walks along the country road. Thank you Penny and George for making things so smooth during our stay and for being such wonderful hosts!

A MUST TO STAY AT

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at this property with a group of friends the last weekend in July. We were pleasantly suprised how much room the house had and the overall clean and together appearance. The owners were extremely helpful and available for any questions prior to our arrival and just the same during our stay. The land is just gorgeous and very relaxing. The nearby town had lots of cute shops and eateries for all ages. I would love to stay there again giving the oportunity and highly recommend this house to others ...
