About Derek & Alison Dailey

We are a family with three young children that try to take them to this house as often as we can in both the summer and ski seasons. We reside in NJ and and have been sucessfully renting this house out for about 7 years now. We enjoy running the business of renting it out to guests to enjoy the gorgeous views, serenity and convenient location to both mountains in the Catskills!

Derek & Alison Dailey purchased this house in 2000

Why Derek & Alison Dailey chose Hunter Mountain

We bought this house because of it's location. We think the Catskills are gorgeous and that Hunter and Windam Mountains have a lot going on. The house itself seemed special to us because of the gorgeous views of mountains staring at you from all three levels of the house which sits on a small private lake. The lake is shared by two other familes, none of which you can see from the house and everyone seems to really love the time they spend on this property.

Great Ski House, Great Location, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Liked everything about the house for our ski weekend. We've rented a few houses over the years and this one was by far the nicest in it's price range. Plenty of space for our group to feel comfortable in. Woodburning stove/fireplace was nice and the big open feel from each of the three floors to the outside views of the mountain were EXCELLENT. Also, close to everything yet very private. I'd recommend this to any group that wants to ski Hunter Mountain.

Beautiful home but DID NOT GET DEPOSIT BACK

  • 1 of 5

The property was beautiful and exactly like it's pictures. Our group had no problems except there was no gas in the grill, which we improvised. All of our questions were answered very quickly, until the weekend was over. I have tried reaching out to the homeowner multiple times about getting my deposit back and she hasn't even responded. We left the house in the same condition we received it in, so there is no reason I should not have gotten it back. So beware of renting, it's not worth the money if you do not receive your deposit.

Owner's Response: We had correspondence through the time you checked out and up until we had the house searched, per your request, for a Bluetooth speaker which was left behind and since mailed along with a check for the return of your deposit! I expressed how happy we were that you loved the house and I even had it returned to you at the address you provided to me and didn't deduct anything from the deposit for the shipping of it. This is quite misleading to traveler's as you very much loved the house and enjoyed your stay as expressed to me and we went out of our way, over and above to have the speaker returned to your address and with the deposit. I will reach out to you separately as to what is going on here, so as to get to the bottom of a missing check and speaker. As always, we thank you very much for renting with us and our only hope for our guests is they want to return again! Thank you and I will be in touch with you following this.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at Derck and Allison's. The view and access of the lake and mountains was perfect. Those looking for an emaculate/modern place might look elsewhere. The kitchen could use an upgrade as it is quite outdated and there appeared to be no working smoke alarm. Otherwise the property is perfectly adequate for big groups looking to access a wide variety of outdoor activities in the area.

Maybe not worth the money

  • 2 of 5

The layout of this cabin is as nice as advertised, but the photos are years out of date. All the outside decks, stairs and pier have almost all the red paint weathered off, and there are some broken boards to watch out for. The air conditioners are loud and dirty, and have only two settings: manual on or manual off. The shower in one bathroom has persnickety temperature control. That said, all the appliances worked well, and the owners are clearly doing renovations. The floors in the bottom level were new and lovely, and there was construction material stored in the garage. The open concept living/dining area allowed all twelve of us to hang out comfortably, and the many bedrooms and decks gave places for the introverts to retreat to when they got overwhelmed. I would have said that "for the reasonable price, the cabin is worth the few drawbacks" EXCEPT. . . it has been almost a month and we have not received our security deposit back. I did not see anything in the lease saying that the deposit is NOT refundable. For the cost of the cabin rental plus the security deposit, I could have rented a nicer place elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Hello...the pictures are all as current as they could be, within the last few months, there are no tricks involved. The pictures are absolutely what you arrive to. Yes, the deck paint is the only picture that is not updated and it is no longer red. It is faded, as decks get and any boards have since been replaced. Repainting the decks is something we are doing next spring...we wanted to get that done this past spring but weren't able to. As for the other pictures, they all reflect almost new everything in the house! The dining room table, chairs, new carpeting in all of the bedrooms, all white and new bedding always, newer appliances, décor, etc. We are there often. The pictures actually do NOT yet reflect the new hardwood flooring downstairs as well as the newly renovated vaulted lighted ceiling done purely for aesthetic purposes only! The a/c is rarely turned on as we are of the very few houses that have a/c at all up there because it is so much cooler on the mountain, even during the summer. The house is kept immaculately clean. We will look at any dirtiness to the a/c. We will also look into the temperature control of the one shower you mention. There is no way of knowing this since it is rented constantly and no one has ever mentioned it being "parsnickey" or out of whack. We are also so reasonably priced for being one of three houses we have that are of the nicest for rent on the mountain. There are a few log cabin mansions that cost significantly more and then there is what we have been told many times before is "garbage" out there. We put a lot of care into the house. There are so many new renovations to the house... it is a beautiful house and we are glad that you enjoyed it both inside and out! As for the security deposit, that was returned on July 16th, well within the 10 business days our agreement and deposit receipt state we send it back in (assuming no damage). I have confirmed it was sent then and accepted on the end of who sent the deposit to us. Both the deposit and payment were not sent by you, and we return the same way and to whom sent it to us. I will confirm this with you directly as well (through a screenshot). We thank you for renting with us and do hope you return again soon...the decks should be repainted by then! Thank you.

A relaxing weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for 2 nights with 8 friends and our 1 year old son. The location is perfect- directly in between hunter mountain and windham. The view from the house is incredible and definitely the biggest appeal. The bedrooms are very nice and comfortable. The kitchen and den area could use some updating but was very clean and functioning. Allison was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. It is a perfect house if you want to just relax, getaway from every day hustle, and unwind. Thanks for a memorable trip.

House Rental a Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house out for President's Day weekend and couldn't have asked for more. The house was even nicer than the pictures online- there were a few renovations you could see were just completed. Really beautiful house on an even more gorgeous location. The beds were really comfortable and all set up hotel like, everything felt really clean in the house. It fit our group very comfortably and the views are stunning! We saw the review posted about someone not getting their security deposit back and were a bit concerned about that before our stay. Without even asking for it, it was returned in about 5 days after we checked out! We want to book this house again for some time during the summer to enjoy the lake. Allison has already gotten back to us with info on availability and was always quick to respond and helpful. We would recommend this to any family or group that wants a reasonably priced house that exceeds your expectations both inside and out.

There is a great babbling brook on the property that runs into the lake. During warmer months, the lake is great for fishing; it's stocked with Catfish, Trout, Bass, Bluegills, Sunnies, and more! It's also a great lake for swimming and afternoon fun! Approximately 2 hours from NYC, off exit 20 on the NYS Thruway coming from the South, or Exit 21 coming from the North.
