An Outdoor HOT TUB was recently added which provides a splendid 'after-ski' experience - under the stars or the falling snow!

Ski Resorts: The Hill-n-Hollow Guest House is located on Travis Hill Road in Preston Hollow over-looking the Great Northern Catskill Mountains. The slopes of Ski Windham are visible from 1 mile up the road behind the house. The hamlet of Preston Hollow borders the Catskill Creek. It is 15 miles to the Slopes - about 20 minutes to Windham. Hunter Mountain is a few miles (15 minutes) further. The surrounding hamlets are full of antique shops for browsing, and collecting. This is a house that offers solitude as well as a base for family activities in the mountains and surrounding farming communities.

The property was purchased in 2000 as a vacation property. I grew up in upstate New York, but now live in California, and travel frequently to New York on business. The property is maintained by local friends.
We choose this property for it's spectacular view, and the charm of the surrounding hamlets, and easy access to the ski resorts of the Catskills, and the surrounding sites of Cooperstown, Saratoga, and Tanglewood, each about 1hr. 15. min. drive. A new Hot Tub under the stars, overlooking this fabulous view is a memorable experience.
Wow, is how we, and our friends felt about the house and the view. Most people have this same reaction. The area is quiet, safe, and yet accessible. We love watching the weather move up and down the valley, and no two sunsets are ever the same. An added benefit is that we have very few bugs, even on a warm evening. The hillside is dry and there are no places for mosquitoes to nest.
