Our family has stayed at Mountain View three times - all weekends in December - the most recent being in '09. The fact that we have returned is a sure indicator that we have really enjoyed our weekends there. Although we live within an hour's drive of Richmondville, we always feel like we are on a special getaway weekend in some remote place that could be hours away. The chalet is clean, and well-maintained, with beautiful views, a very cozy welcoming atmosphere, places to hike - even in the winter, and all the amenities a family needs to have a good time together away from home. The common area is not large, but it provides an area for sharing meals, playing games, sitting around the fire place, or just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. The pool room offers an alternative indoor activity, especially if the weather isn't conducive to outside fun. The listing is accurate, but if you have further questions, a phone call or email will generate a prompt reply. We would definitely recommend this rental home to families, friends, and couples looking for a quiet, rural location and yet one that is close to the interstate and within driving distance of museums, parks, restaurants, the state capital and other interesting and fun sites. The owners are very accomodating and helpful.
