Fabulous group trip

  • 5 of 5

What a great home! We were a group of 10 friends who wanted a weekend getaway. The modest sized home had an amazing layout allowing for pockets of private hang-out space on each level. Between the sauna, in-door hot tub, large decks (upstairs and down), and general sitting areas, we felt comfortable, relaxed, and entertained. Bedrooms were clean and bedding was comfortable. The home has fancy amenities, but it is still a cabin the woods, which I loved, meaning that it's rustic and not overly landscaped. We stayed warm with 2 wood-burning stoves (how romantic!). There was an electric heat override function if you are a guest who would be scared to sleep with a fire burning. He also didn't charge us for fire wood and that saved us serious money! The owner lived at the end of the road, and gave us privacy -- we would never had known that anybody lived along that road based on sound or visibility. He even kindly drove us to a beer festival, which allowed us to not have to designate 2 friends as DDs (awesome perk!). I would love to return on a warmer weekend and use to pool.

Perfect Getaway Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend of skiing and relaxation. We could not have had a more wonderful time. The house is perfect for family and friends to unwind and spend quality time together. The layout is perfect for everyone to have their own space, while also being able to convene together in the living areas. All of the amenities in the house (sauna, hot tub, Jacuzzi tub, fireplace...) we never wanted to leave! Peter was such an accommodating host and was lovely to rent from. We are already planning our next trip back! Perhaps warmer weather when we can take advantage of the pool! :) Thanks for a wonderful weekend getaway Peter!

Absolutely fantastic ! Just returned today !

  • 5 of 5

We just returned today and I had to post ! I chose this property for my husbands surprise birthday weekend based on the amenities I was seeking , distance to Hunter mt. And the reviews. I've never used an online service to rent ( I've always used agent ) so I was concerned of being scammed at first .. Mr. Blume , the owner immediately put my mind at ease ! The booking process was a piece of cake and this house is very fairly priced ! FIRST- mr Blume I want to thank you for answering my emails so quickly and lord knows I sent a lot lol! Your home is fantastic and you are a great person to rent from !

Mr Blume greeted us upon arrival and showed us the house manual , gave dining suggestions and made sure we were all set . We didn't see him again for the weekend ( someone posted a review stating he is always around )

We were 8 guests in total and our dog and the house was very spacious ( 3 floors) , clean, ( a few cobwebs n spiders but hey your in a mountain cabin ) we all were able to eat together at huge dining table , there were wine glasses and plates etc . the views of the mountain from the house are amazing all around ! There is a quaint little brook outside as well that you can hear at night .The hot tub was perfect located in the lower level in a separate little room. Firewood is provided free of charge for the small favor of refilling it when you leave from

The woodpile outside .. No biggie !

3 bathrooms allowed privacy , washer and dryer was a nice but unused Ammenity . Beds were comfortable , linens as well . The lower floor game room was fun for all as well ( darts , air hockey and foosball)

Saturday we took a quick 10 minute ride to the mountain for snow tubing , literally 10 minutes !

Sunday we cleaned up , your only asked to strip linens , refill wood and put towels in laundry bin and bring garbage out to the shed . There are pantry items in home and we left some plastics etc for the next guests.

Overall we fell in love with this place and are booking again for spring immediately .great price , great host , great house .

Thank you again mr Blume !!!!- Jena and James

Beautiful, spacious mountain home - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect last gasp of summer vacation before school started and real life set in. Only a few hours from NYC, the house is nestled into the mountains with gorgeous views. Quiet and peaceful, yet just off the road the takes you from Tannersville to Phoenicia.

Our kids were thrilled with the pool and the game room in the basement, and our oldest really enjoyed the sauna. We would love to come back in cold weather to use the wood stove and the huge hot tub. There is plenty of room to spread out, and the main living area is quite open and welcoming. The bedrooms are comfortable, and we all loved the fluffy comforters. Everyone wanted to check out the soaking tub.

The deck has a large picnic table and a big grill that we used a lot. The owner is very sweet and and helpful, and while he lives just down the road he keeps a low profile. He had some great suggestions for things to do and good hiking trails for our family.

The house has wifi which worked quite well for us. We explored the nearby towns, went fishing, played mini golf, and rode the scenic Catskills railway. Next time we want to go tubing. All in all it was the perfect place to say goodbye to the summer.
