CATSKILL MOUNTAINS, HITS, MINUTES OFF THE NYS THRUWAY

West Saugerties Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-7

Private post and beam style chalet tucked way back in the woods with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Minutes from stores and attractions yet so wooded and quiet. Endless amount of things to do in the area all four seasons. Drive back the long gravel drive to this wooded oasis. The many decks and porches will beckon you to sit and relax but the saline pool will beg you to dive in. Inside you'll think you just stepped into a log cabin. So much beautiful wood work and soaring ceilings. The floor to ceiling fireplace will call out for a blaze but the chefs kitchen will distract you and get the taste buds working over time. The down stairs bedrooms are sizable and very comfy and there are two full baths on this level. Travel up the spiral stair case and check out the third bedroom which is a master. Once you slip into that two person jetted tub the cares of the world will slip away.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

My husband and I purchased this property so many years ago. He's gone now and I don't use it as much as we did. Think it's time to let others enjoy it!

We needed an escape from our hectic city lives and jobs. This place has helped to keep us sane over the years.

Plenty of privacy, very comfortable layout, killer kitchen, nice pool. Plenty to do nearby. Fireplace.

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in July and were very pleased with the property. It is a lovely chalet type house with a large swimming pool surrounded by a deck. The house was well appointed and comfortable, and was pet friendly. It is nicely secluded in the woods and the house was spotless. We would highly recommend this house but not for the last week in July, because we want to come back next year!

Be cautious - check with manager before renting

  • 2 of 5
The property manager did everything he could to make our stay comfortable, but the property was just not ready.

The chef's kitchen was not well equipped, the spectacular double oven Garland stove didn't actually work. The heated pool was only occasionally heated, and started draining at one point. But the most stunning disappointment was the smell. Clearly the owner is a pet-lover (you can see all the dog beds in the interior photos), and the hair, the smell of pets, and the smell of curry powder, was overwhelming. We spent the first entire day of our vacation cleaning, including an hour on the gas grill (important, because the stove wasn't working). We spent the second day with the property manager trying to get the pool to work (apparently, the people before us had fiddled with the controls in a really bad way). It worked for a while, and then stopped later. Eventually we were able to clean the house pretty well, and air it out, but if anyone in your group is really allergic to pet hair that could be a big deal.

This could be a really nice place. The property manager really pulled out all the stops to do what he could, and we really appreciated that. Just about everything that went wrong for us could be completely fixed by now ... certainly before we'd go back we'd call the manager and make sure those things are ready.

The setting for this cabin is absolutely gorgeous. The location is "just right" for Saugerties and Woodstock ... and both of those towns are terrific fun. The deck was wonderful. We were a bit surprised that the pool is an above-ground pool (from the pictures it looks much more built in than it really is), but still ... that decking is built right up to the pool so it works out great. And that fireplace is just beautiful. Bottom line: There's a *lot* to like about this cabin. But be cautious, and check with the manager before renting.

Hope this helps!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I'm the property manager there. You folks were VERY allergic to the pet dander as I recall. As you stated, you can see the crates in the pics and knew they were there. No other renters we had last summer mentioned them. We did everything possible to make your stay more comfortable. I recall your moving the crates outside while here. The previous guests had hurt the pool big time. Thank you for being very understanding of that bad situation while here. As I recall, we gave you back all of your $150 cleaning fee in an effort to compensate you. This review, 8 months after you stayed there, was quite the surprise. Respectfully, B
