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.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 16 here for the weekend. It was a "Girl's Weekend" getaway. The house was fantastic. A great house for entertaining a large group or just hanging out. We made Christmas cookies in the kitchen without being on top of each other. There were plenty of beds for all of us. The property was beautiful. The horses down at the stable were great. We fed them carrots even though I don't think we were supposed to and took pictures. Later that afternoon we went to the local "small" vineyard (very nice time) and went to the local Brew Pub for dinner. A great time overall and we will be back for a ski weekend in the spring.

Owner's Response: We aim to please. The house is a great place for a Girl's Weekend or even a Guy's Weekend. Ski Weekends, Hiking Weekends, Leaf Peepers, Festival Goers, Golfers, come on up and enjoy the beautiful Catskills. It's closer than you think...

Wonderful farm house

  • 5 of 5

We made a great decision in the selection of the dancing horse farm! It was a great place for our extended family to get together. A wonderful stay. The house had everything you needed. Much better than the pictures show! We had an amazing time and loved visiting the horses and the goats. Close to Windham Mountain where we went skiing and tubing. Anita was amazing and we enjoyed hearing about the horses , which she takes great pride in. She made our stay very enjoyable. We would definitely come back.

A lovely place

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful location with nice rooms and a great layout for family gatherings. The 2 common areas are a real plus. The association with the horses is a nice addition. We were invited down to the “help” (although I'm sure it would have been done much faster without our dubious assistance). I would recommend highly. Anita and her daughter were a pleasure to work with. We even got a horse show, with jumping!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful, fun and responsible group we had over the Christmas holiday! I thoroughly enjoyed their company and questions at the barn along with their help. They had so much care in how they left the house and in their communication with me. We hope to see them again!

Very lovely and enjoyable stay for a large group of 26+, thanks to the Dancing Horse Farm!

  • 5 of 5

Choosing the Dancing Horse Farm to accommodate our group of 26 was the best decision we've made! The house was spacious, very tidy, fully stocked with everything we could've needed for the stay. The host was absolutely wonderful, she was very helpful and was flexible with our requests for horse riding lessons. We invited her over for dinner one night during our stay, and had a wonderful time learning about her life around the farm and the stories behind each horse under her care! Her hospitality and helpfulness truly made a difference in our stay at the farm. The house was also very children-friendly. We had 4 children and 2 newborns with us during the trip, there was plenty of entertainment for the kids on the first floor - such as pool table, mini foosball table, cards/board games, and more. Our entire group had a great time staying at the Dancing Horse Farm and would HIGHLY recommend parties of any size to consider this as an option for their stay! We would definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: Pei's group was respectful and very nice. They kept in close communication and we all had a very good time doing the HorseBack Riding Workshops. They left the place clean and communicated when they were leaving. I look forward to them returning some day.
