Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home for a family reunion that would accomodate all 32 of us comfortably, was affordable, and had things for adults and kids to do. This was without a doubt the absolute best choice we made. The house and property are so beautiful and clean, and between all the amenities, there was always something for the adults and kids to do. Hunter Mountain, cute cafes and boutique shops are within a ten minute driving range as well, so it is very conveniently located. You feel like you're on your own private estate, and the views are truly breathtaking. With three kitchens, twelve bedrooms, and countless bathrooms and living areas, you will not be on top of each other at all, and everyone will have their own privacy. The ages in our group ranged from 4 to 80, and everyone enjoyed themselves the same. We would definitely recommend this house for people looking for a great family getaway.

What an amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were one family, consisting  of 37 people, trying to enjoy Shabbos Chanukah under 1 roof.  I didn't think it could be done privately, without going to a hotel setting.  I guess I was wrong!  Your property fit all of our needs to a "T" !

The location was 10 minutes from Hunter mountain; the layout  was almost  custom made; all of the Shabbos meals were enjoyed in your large and comfortable dining area. It was simply indescribable!  All of my grandchildren were glued to the pool table, arcade games, and ping pong table.  The older ones even ventured out onto the frozen lake!

 

I'll always remember and forever cherish the Chanukah  candle lighting on Friday evening and Shabbos night! It was a mesmerizing beautiful scene  to see my children and grandchildren patiently wait their turn( by age) to light the candles! After everyone's Menorah was lit, we sang and danced in joyful ecstasy.  Simply breathtaking!  I will be singing your praises to all who will have the need to accommodate their families under 1 roof.  You were a pleasure to work with; professional and understanding to every detail of our needs.

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at "Your Own Estate" last summer. During our stay our group included around 35 people, and there was ample room for all! Not just to sleep but, dining, socializing and swimming. The Estate itself is in immaculate condition and all of the rooms were comfortable. Each person who stayed, despite our large number, felt that they had their own space when they needed some time alone.

The pool and pond are what really make the space special. The pool is the size of a resort pool and provided ample seating for non-swimmer. The pond was enjoyed from the 1st day until the last with the opportunity to fish and canoe. My 3 year old daughter even got to catch her 1st fish! If you are searching for a place to bring your family together where everyone will be content, relaxed, and rejuvenated, I can't think of a better place than "My Own Estate."

An amazing backdrop for our wedding and vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding at “Your Own Estate” and it was an outstanding success! The property provided an amazing backdrop for our wedding. The majority of our guests who stayed at the property traveled from Ireland and we wanted them to not only attend a wedding, but also enjoy a vacation. The property gave us all of that and more. The property’s two separate houses attracted me to the estate originally and proved to work perfectly, our guests were able to flow between both houses with ease. They were able to hang out in the small house’s game room or play pool in the main house - having different amenities in both houses allowed for a nice flow of people moving from house to house throughout the week.

The property itself is breath taking with the amazing views offered by Mother Nature. The heated pool was great and underwater lighting was a really nice effect, the hot tub was easy to use, the boats on the lake were fun for both adults and kids. The pool table and the card tables were constantly put to good use.

We worked with Brett, the owner, from the very beginning and he could not have be more helpful. We visited the house some months before to see it in person and Brett was there to welcome us and show us around. He told us at that time that he was going to redo all bathrooms in the main house before our event and when we arrived all were redone and they were beautiful. The first day we had a small leak under a sink in the kitchen, I called him up and that afternoon plumbers arrived to the property to fix it. I must admit from the beginning Brett come across genuine and I always felt he was more interested in us having a great wedding and stay at his property than anything else.

There are so many things I liked about our stay and our wedding at this property and I encourage everyone considering The Estate that everything I wanted was exactly what I got. From finding a destination wedding property with breathtaking views for our ceremony to having my guests enjoy that same view throughout the reception, to having the wedding to start and end exactly when I requested. Not to mention having my guests who were staying for the week not only be there for the wedding but also for a vacation, these are just some example of what I hoped for and exactly what I got, if this is what you are looking for then this is the place for you!

A fun, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My company just returned from a weekend stay at the Estate in the Catskills and had a wonderful time. 42 of us went as a celebration for reaching a certain milestone at work and were extremely excited to get out of the city and spend a long weekend together.

The listing on the website of the Estate is extremely accurate and even downplays how beautiful the property is. The large main home and guest house are sprawled over a gorgeous surrounding property, with a huge grass area in the front yard to relax on, a big lake below that you can take the canoes on and a really nice, large pool that easily accommodated a large portion of our company. The bedrooms are all nicely taken care of, the bathrooms were all updated and super clean, the kitchen is modern and the games and extracurricular activities at the home were a great extra touch. Some of our favorite amenities were: the pool and lounge chairs, the hot tub, the hammock, the canoes at the lake, the large open area you could hike, the pool table, the bar, the BBQ, the fire pit, the TV areas and the poker table. There was never a shortage of things to do and there was something for everyone whether you wanted to be extra active and explore, lounge inside and watch TV or lay out in the sun and enjoy the pool. Also, we had two groups go zip-lining and paint balling at nearby places that offered it.

I think the best part of the trip that everyone can agree on was the fact that we all got so much closer and learned more about each other, in turn making work more fun for us. Eating dinners together, playing poker, swimming and hiking were all some of the activities where we made great memories that I'm sure we'll laugh about for a long time.

Interacting with Brett while planning this whole trip was seamless. He was very reliable and informative when it came to helping me find caterers, transportation and the contact information for the outside activities. All of the contacts he provided me we used, and I have nothing but great things to say about the vendors. If we go to the Catskills again (which we all want to), I'd definitely use the same vendors.

Friends Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer (4 years now) we meet at the Estate property with 4 Seasons Getaways for a "friends reunion". The house is exactly as described and perfect for our large group, with ages ranging from 1-62 years. Both houses on the Estate are in wonderful condition, and provide plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably as well as places to hang out. The recent upgrades to the house and property have made the experience even more enjoyable, especially the newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms in the main house.

From the pool, large fields, lake (and boats!), and outside patio area, the Estate makes for a wonderful summer getaway -- there is plenty of space both indoor and outdoor and activities to keep our large group entertained and laughing. This year we also made day trips to neighboring towns including Hunter, Saratoga and Woodstock, which are only a short ride away.

Overall it was a wonderful experience working with 4 Seasons Getaways -- Brett was very accessible, accommodating and professional, and I would most certainly recommend the property!
