A wood pellet stove provides a warm evening ambiance on cold winter evenings while the days are filled with spectacular views and the wild nature of the Catskill Mountains including deer, turkey, foxes, rabbits, etc.
An Outdoor HOT TUB was recently added, and the water is changed for each guest.

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 calendar on this web-site is kept up to date, so do check it for availability. Cross country skiing is available at the Huck Preserve in nearby Rensselaerville.
Accommodations and Rates: We offer rooms by the night (min. 2 nights), the week and the month. We book by the room or the full house, so a couple might have the hole house to themselves, or might share the kitchen with another couple staying in another room.
The entire house can be booked if you book the full house rate sleeping up to 10. There is an additional 2 foam kid beds so there is the possibility to sleep 12, but this is the maximum the house can comfortably accommodate.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details on accommodations. I check my email through out the day. For urgent answers you can my cell phone: 415-734-1242, (but there is limited cell coverage in our area so I might not be able to reply immediately to cell phone messages.)
Last Minute Deals are always an option. Less then 2 weeks out, we reduce our rates to fill the rooms so if you want a deal, check our availability on this site.
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. My friend Jim Walker lives locally and manages the rental property.
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.
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.
