** Night Life - There is a terrific nightlife and fantastic dining right near by. In fact some of our favorite clubs & restaurants are less than 2 miles from the cabin.

We're from the city and love the quick escape and fantastic outdoor activities the Catskill region offers. We purchased the land in the late '90's and worked hard to make our dream escape become a reality. My husband is a fantastic builder and we spared no expense to make this one of the best vacation homes in the Hunter/Windham area. It brings us tremendous joy to share with others our beautiful home away from home!

JoAnn purchased this chalet in 1999

After years of searching for the perfect spot to build our dream escape, we instantly fell in love with the seclusion of Sun Set Park yet the close proximity to all the things we love to do on the mountain top which is ski, golf, hike, bike, kayak & fish. The nightlife and dining options are numerous also!

Our home is really unlike anything offered in the Hunter area and our attention to detail is what sets us apart. Unique lights fixtures, one of kind antiques, framed local scenic photography, antique skis, Persian rugs, fine fabrics & linens, beautiful pottery, wood carvings, various works of art...right down to the cabinetry knobs, even the door bell...its' all been well thought out. Ultimately creating an environment that seamlessly blends modern comfort with a rustic feel. Couple this with walls of glass & the surrounding forest - you'll feel one with nature, but in total, cozy comfort.

I would highly recommend this house. It's beautiful and spacious with a great layout--open, modern, and comfortable. The property is also really lovely, good views and quiet surroundings. The owners of the house were very easy to work with; they provided fast and pleasant correspondence and answered all of my questions about the house and the Catskills. I would definitely return to this house again.

The Smith Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2011
  • Stayed: Dec 2009
My special thanks to the homeowners JoAnn and Scott for providing a such a lovely space for our family Christmas vacation. Our experience was filled with wonderful memories of relaxing in their beautifully decorated home complete with everything needed for comfort. We were a family of eight with two very small children and enjoyed the options for getting away to a quiet space in the loft to read a book or the downstairs for a game of pool. The kitchen, dining room and living room was the hub for happiness, the bathrooms were spotless and comfortable. The home was warm and cozy when we arrived and JoAnn even provided decorations for a Christmas tree to make it complete. She was close by if there was any need for assistance or questions but never intruded. Mother Nature fulfilled our wish for beautiful snow which allowed for sledding and skiing and the homeowner even helped by having someone come plow the driveway! I wish we were back there watching the snow fall and enjoying the comfort of this great log cabin home.

Joann,

Thanks so much for making our weekend getaway perfect! Your house was exactly as described on your website and was the perfect setting for our vacation. The deck was a great outdoor space and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook some great meals. We especially enjoyed grilling up some delicious filet mignons on the new Weber grill! The house was very clean and had plenty of space for our party of 8. We were also really impressed by the décor and the updates you made throughout your home.

Just like your home, the view and surrounding area was also beautiful. Thanks for the guide book as well with the clear directions to Kaaterskill Falls. Our trip there was the highlight of our weekend. We had an amazing time hiking the mountain and even made our way behind the waterfalls. It was truly awesome.

Anyone looking to rent a house in the Hunter Mountain area should not hesitate to reserve this home. Joann was very responsive before, during and after our stay and answered all the questions we had a long the way.

Thanks for everything and we look forward to coming back again!!!

My friends and I spent the Columbus Day weekend at this lovely vacation house. The house is not too far from New York downstate which makes it a perfect getaway place for the busy city people, like us. We like the fact that the house is well-appointed and maintained. I am sure the owners have put in a lot of time, money and effort in upkeeping their house at such a high level. We had a lot of fun and precious memories in the house and the surrounding areas, like enjoying the spectacular foliage, watching stars at night, and flying kites, etc. I particularly appreciate the responsiveness and helpfulness of the owners which make the reservation process easy and the stay enjoyable respectively. I’d highly recommend this vacation house to my friends and family.

Our family loved it! From our 18 year old down to 16 month old, it was a hit. The cabin was beautiful and clean with so much character. It was hard to decide to go out and explore the breathtaking hiking trails in the area or stay in and cozy up in the secluded cabin tucked away among the trees.....so we did both...and we'd do it again! Thanks.

Great deck, awesome kitchen, lounging louging area, fantastic pool table, nice and quiet,too!,
Not enough time spent to enjoy other features like the wood burning stove, gas grill, rear deck etc.
Love the area of Haines Falls which is close enough yet far enough from "civilization."
Cable TV, WiFi, and Sirius radio (which I never listened to before) were nice features.
Tannersvile is a nice town and the lakes (north nand south) are very nice.
The hike to Kaaterskill falls was definately a highlight of our stay.
I would recommend staying at this cabin to anyone!

The cabin is absolutely great, and you'll have everything you need right at hand. Very clean, and very quiet area. Relatively close to nightlife in Tannersville/Hunter. I'm still amazed there were cab companies out there. Amazingly few bugs for being in the woods. Owner provided great service and contacts.
