About Greg Fuller (Owner), Anita Martin (Manager)
My family has always had a love for the mountains and horses. My parents first built the lodge in 1988 to come out to the country and experience the beautiful hiking throughout the catskill mountains in the summer and in the winter enjoy the world class skiing and snowboarding at Windham Mountain and Hunter Mountain. Our property was historically a dairy farm and later pheasant hunting grounds. After we built our home here in 1988 we renovated the historic barn on the property and created a first-rate private equestrian facility. Now open for all to experience, Dancing Horse Farm is a place for all people to enjoy what our family enjoyed for so many years. A beautiful ski lodge near Windham Mountain and an exceptional equestrian experience.

We had 24 who stayed overnight and 38 guests at an anniversary party. It was the perfect venue. The house was comfy and roomy enough to accommodate all. Anita and her daughter gave our littlest guests an awesome workshop with the horses.
it was my wedding weekend and we needed a big enough place to host our bridal party and dates. this place was perfect and the property manager was super responsive and accommodating.
College friends and families get together
This house worked great for our gathering of multiple families!
I am so glad to hear how well the space worked out for your multiple family gathering. It is nice to have the common areas for everybody to get together and then to be able to retreat back to your own bedroom in a far off corner of the house. Thank you so much for taking great care of our place and treating our home like your own.
Need to update listing
WE DID not expect to have NO Air Conditioning, because no where in listing does it say this, was the hottest day of year i think. AFTER cooling down in restaurant nearby, we cooled down. I must admit the next two nights were not bad and our group stayed away till evening time and ended up not bad to sleep. Plenty of fans and the home was beautiful. I would recommend stayng here if in the sking season but be prepared for a little warmth in the summer time. In fairness to the owners, we found out MOST homes do not have AC so we understand this is normal. The group would stay again kknowing what to expect. thanks Anita for everything
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Dancing Horse Farm. I am glad you thought our little farm was beautiful. Keeping up with the house, the property, the horses, the ponies and the goats keeps Anita and me very busy and we love it! I am glad to hear your group would stay again. We would definitely love to have you again. Your group was a pleasure to deal with and you were model guests with regard to your care for our home.
I am sorry that you were not aware that the home did not have air conditioning. It is true that most of the homes in the area do not have air conditioning. We are in the Catskill Mountains and we mostly enjoy cool nights and daytime temperatures about 10 degrees cooler than the nearby towns and cities down in the flat land surrounding the mountains. Sadly, you were there on the hottest day of the year, and hot is hot, no matter where you are.
The Homeaway/VRBO site can make it hard to see all of the amenities that a property doesn’t offer, such as air conditioning. As a homeowner, when I fill out their form for amenities, I check the boxes next to the items I do have. Then the listing shows “yes, this property does have: deck, grill, washer/dryer, pool table, linens, internet…etc”. Unfortunately, all the boxes I did not check are not shown with empty check boxes, such as a pool, gym, sauna, Alexa, movie theatre, ping pong table or air conditioning. So as a consumer it puts the responsibility on you to know exactly what you want, without knowing what all of the potential amenities are, and that is unfortunate. I think the format should maybe be changed to show the complete list of possible amenities with a “yes” or “no” next to them. I will actually make that recommendation to Homeaway.
Regardless of whether or not we can make this change to make all listings more informative, we would love to have you back at Dancing Horse Farm. I apologize that our listing was unclear, and I would like to offer you a free night’s lodging on any stay of 2 nights or more the next time you visit.
Again, thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to comment. Next time one of your family or friends is getting inducted into the Cooperstown Hall of Fame (hey, it could happen again) we would love to have you stay with us! But please, don’t wait for that, come back soon!
Dancing Horse Farm
This was the perfect house for our large group retreat in the middle of a hectic summer. Greg and Anita were fantastic to work with and everything went so smoothly. The house is RIDICULOUSLY amazing and very spacious and has everything you could need for a fabulous time. And the setting is beyond spectacular. Could not recommend this more!
Thank you so much for the kind words. We loved having your group here! You definitely pulled together a great group of people, and you rallied them quickly. I think it was about 2 weeks between the time we first spoke til you were all here for an excellent 4th of July weekend! I need some lessons on organizing people like that. Thanks so much and we hope to see you again soon!
This house was great and the location was stunning. The pictures online don't do it justice. It was bigger than we imagined. The goats and horses being close by was awesome. We loved walking down and saying hi to them. We rented this property for a casual wedding celebration with about 30 of our friends and it was perfect. We had a caterer come and serve lunch outside which worked out very well. I definitely recommend this property.
