About Matthew Wizeman

We are native New Yorkers from the big city but with many years of Catskills experience. We love the getaway and we love the festivals, sporting events, skiing, vivid fall colors and the great restaurants of Windham.

Matthew Wizeman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Matthew Wizeman chose Hunter Mountain

Our family has been going to the Catskills since 1968. We spent our summers on Hunter Mountain for over 20 years. When my parents sold their place in Hunter we sought a property close to Hunter but even closer to Windham, which has transcended itself into one of the premier family resorts on the East Coast. We wanted the seclusion and serenity of quintessential Catskills but also enough things to do to keep our vacation time exciting. When we bought the cabin it was a very simple house and to a large extent it still is, but we added a back deck, a shed for of our action gear, a fire pit, new gutters, and a landscape overhaul. The property is now designed for a great getaway with plenty of peace and quiet, but with plenty to do as well. We hope you enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is minutes from both Hunter and Windham. There is ope space to relax and play. The fire pit and back deck provide unique sanctuaries for those looking to get away a brief respite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much. I have you on my favorites for when we would like to return. We are thinking maybe mid year in 2013. Question though.... At what time of the year do you see the most deer? We went out everynight to take pictures and we saw 46 in a half an hour! Can you believe it? They were walking up the road like dogs. We loved to see them. Can't wait to return!

Exactly what expected

  • 4 of 5

Matthew was a great host - responded fast to all questions and concerns. The cabin, also a little old, had everything needed to spend two days. Kitchen had all supplies, a lot of games in the livingroom helped us to entertain three teenagers during the long winter evenings.

Comfortable cabin experience!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this cabin with my husband and his parents. This home had everything we needed. We were able to grill outside, which was amazing. We also took advantage of using the fire pit, which was a really relaxing experience. The home had detailed instructions on what to do. This was my first time renting from HomeAway and I am very happy I did. Matthew was very responsive with any questions I had about his home. Great experience overall!!

Great little cabin for a relaxing weekend getaway. The fire pit was a big hit as was the gaming system for the kids. The owner was easy to communicate with. We will return for another getaway when we need one.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

First I want to start by thanking Matthew for ALWAYS answering my questions and concerns in a very timely manner. From where to visit to how to use things around the house, he was there to get back to me within minutes. Cabin is very nice, love the fact I forgot about my phone and actually had conversations with the family. My most favorite place would be the fire pit!!! Must take advantage of it!!! Definitely looking forward to coming back during winter! Once again Matthew thank you so much!!!

Nice vacation house for family with kids

  • 4 of 5

It is a really nice vacation house great for family with kids. Our 2 year old definitely enjoyed the backyard filled with tons of toys that we don't have at our house. They have everything, bikes, water gun, sand table, water table, even a frame carrier! She doesn't even need to go anywhere but the backyard for her vacation. All three bedrooms are clean. The kitchen has all the supplies that you will need, various pots, plates, etc.

We took the lift to the mountain top and visited the high falls which is pretty nice for small kid. My daughter can walk to the fall by herself, though she wanted to be carried back after playing in the water. The other nice place to go is the mountain top botanical garden which unfortunately we don't have enough time for.
