In the event of a power outage, we recently had the house wired so our 8500 gas generator only needs to be turned on to provide heat, lighting, TV, and keep the refrigerator going. The driveway is right off the main road so there's easy access for getting in and out. We provide wood for the fire pit.

Great Rental! So many Activities!

  • 5 of 5

Our group absolutely loved this house. The layout was great with 2 common areas, where all 7 of us could hangout. With a hot tub, fooseball, and billiards, we were never bored in this house. 15 minutes from the mountain. 10 minutes to food and drinks. No complaints. The only negative, and it has nothing to do with the house, is the lack of food delivery options after 10pm in the area, but that's just how it is around Hunter. We highly recommend this rental for anyone looking to visit Hunter Mountain!

Not a bad place, but....

  • 2 of 5

Starting with the good: the place is great for a family trip and the game room with bar is a great place to hang out. House is clean and has plenty of room.

The bad: the house has a major issue with the plumbing. Whenever we ran the showers or flushed the toilets the kitchen was overtaken with the smell of sewage. We alerted the owners who had someone come over to check it but they said it didn’t smell. If they don’t get this issue fixed or they tell you that there isn’t a smell don’t stay here. The smell was overwhelming to the point that we were getting nauseous just being in the kitchen. It is hard to prepare food and smell that at the same time. This really put a damper on our trip for us. The beds are pretty uncomfortable but we didn’t expect 5 star accommodations. Also the hot tub was broken and we couldn’t use it which was frustrating as that was one of the reasons that we chose this house. We were alerted a day or two before our trip so we weren’t able to switch units. Overall I’d say the experience was pretty poor. If they fix the hot tub, fix the sewage gas issue and throw some new beds in it would really transform the experience for guests in my opinion.

Lovely and Fun Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Went on a ski trip with 3 single parents each with our own kid. The house was great with enough room for everyone, even when we had additional friends with kids stop by. Plenty of space, the house was warm. The playroom and toys, pool table, foosball, air hockey and jacuzzi were enjoyed by kids and adults! Everything was clean and in good shape. Sandy was a very responsive host. Thanks much! We would definitely return if/when we make such a trip again.

About Sandy or John D'Amours

Hello, Let us begin with telling you a little bit about ourselves. John is Canadian, a naturalized citizen of the U.S., I was born and raised in MA. We ended up in NY when John took a logging job in Hunter. He started logging in Canada at 15 and has impressed many with his ability to land a tree within inches of it's mark. I'm retired from the Postal Service and was Postmaster of our small town Post Office for many years. John is also retired and became quite the carpenter after putting his logging days behind him. We now live between NY & MA.

Sandy or John D'Amours purchased this house in 1977

Why Sandy or John D'Amours chose Lanesville

We bought this house because of it's location and the beautiful mountains. It's close to Hunter, Tannersville, Phoenicia, Woodstock, so many activities close by but still country. We made friends, joined several clubs, had, and went, to many great parties. There's always something going on in the area.

What makes this house unique

Our home was small when we purchased it but once John took up carpentry it grew in size. We added on a large addition furnished with a pool table, air hockey, full bar, a fun room and recently added a foosball table to the amenities. Later we added a large living room with a gas fireplace, a lovely & relaxing room. You can sit on the balcony off the large bedroom upstairs and enjoy watching birds, a rabbit or two, maybe a deer. and the glorious mountains. There's a cozy florida room off the living room downstairs. Two decks out back, a fenced yard, swimming pool, very private. Instead of selling after retirement we decided to try a new venture with our home, vacation rental.
