Why Adam chose Gilboa

I have always wanted a place to escape from the city, but a place that wasn't too far away driving so that it could make a nice weekend possible. I also wanted a place that could be used all year 'round. This place was the perfect combination of all the criteria I wanted and hopefully you too can benefit from that!

What makes this chalet unique

This is my house too, I rent it out only when I am unable to come up myself, so I keep it in excellent condition always and with all the perks and toys you will want to use too!

Close to area ski centers makes it a great home base for skiing/snowboarding to come back to and sit in the hot tub and look up at the stars.

In the summer, close to hiking, golf & fishing and has a beautiful inground swimming pool with mountain views and lush green forest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at the cabin, it is gorgeous and everyone was really pleased. We already have a few other friends who inquired about possibly wanting to rent from you as well!

Lovely Property.

  • 4 of 5

All together it was lovely. House was awesome, pool was awesome and the location was beautiful. Only disappointment was that the landscape was very over grown. Would have been nice to see the lawn mowed, weed wacked and bushes trimmed. Just tidied up would have made a huge difference.

Great group getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a casual group. we had 10 adults and felt there was more than enough space for everyone. The kitchen has all necessary cookwear and the livign room came stocked with various games and movies. We BBQ'd dinner and sat around the firepit each night - just bring your own wood and charcoal. Adam is a breeze to work with, he sent very detailed info about the area and suggestions to make our trip easier. We'll definitely be back!

A great winter escape

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this secluded house. The communication with the owner was great throughout the booking process. The house is in great shape and the hot tub is a huge plus. As per the other reviews, having to take out the garbage and wash the linens before we left was odd but the owner helped us make arrangements for this to be a slightly easier process. Will surely stay here again.

Spacious Home For A Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with another family for a long weekend. It was very spacious and accommodated all our needs. Adam was always available via email and phone to answer all questions. The home was in a great location for a ski weekend. We would stay here again!

Love this place! Such a great time with friends

  • 5 of 5

The owner is quick to respond and a pleasure to do business with. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. About 30min from Windham mountain. The hot tub is perfect after a long day on the slopes. Lots of privacy. Highly recommended!
