A group of 15 of my friends and I rented “Your Own Lodge” for a ski weekend getaway in the Catskills. In addition to skiing, we were celebrating my 30th birthday, so we were looking for a house that was both in close proximity to local resorts but which had enough activities on the property to keep everyone entertained.
From the description of the property, it was clear that it met all of our group’s needs. We were more pleased to discover upon our arrival that it was even better than that. The property boasts three floors of bedrooms. This was more than enough for my group of 15 to have enough rooms, with some leftover. The basement features a bar that rivals most of the NYC setups we are accustomed to. In addition, it has several game tables, multiple TV’s and a hot tub, which was more than enough to keep our group occupied while we were at the property. If the basement isn’t enough to keep your group busy during your stay, the main floor is even more impressive! It features a beautiful wide open space with large bay windows that capture the expansive and beautiful views of the property. Combine that with the wrap around deck and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets!
The property was so amazing we cut our actually ski plans to a half day so we could enjoy it as much as possible during our three-day stay. On the actual day of my birthday, my friends brought out a cake and sang happy birthday to me on the main floor as we watched the sunset over the deck. The ambiance made it so incredible that I will never forget it as long as I live!
I would like to add to this that working with Brett and his company was incredibly easy. Our group has rented properties in the past that have involved plenty of stress leading up to our vacation. This was nothing like that. Brett was extremely accommodating leading up to our rental and met us at the property when we arrived to walk us through everything. I had several follow-up questions after our initial walk through and he was extremely prompt in getting back to me. He even came back to the property to show us how to work the hot tub! He was a true pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to rent from him again in the future!
