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.

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.

Stunning View & Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this place! It was less than a 10 minute drive to Hunter Mountain and close to so many cute towns nearby. We also drove about 20 minutes to Katterskill falls for a beautiful hike! My friends and I were looking for a nice relaxing weekend to get out of the hustle and bustle of New York City for my birthday weekend. The house fit 10 of us comfortably with 2 people in each bed, 3 in the master and 1 on the couch. The group would certainly have to be comfortable with each other to make this work but it helped that the beds were very comfortable! I also appreciated that the kitchen, dining room and living room were all on the top floor making it easy for those who were sleepy and didn't want to continue playing our rambunctious game of Uno, Taboo and Charades to go downstairs, shut the door and hear nothing, haha. The kitchen size was also great making it easy for everyone to commune upstairs and cook. We had several large meals together. We also made use of the grill outdoors, the fire place for our post-hike warmth and the lake view with the fall foliage was absolutely stunning. My only complaint would be that the water and bathrooms had a strong sulfur smell making it almost impossible to drink the tap water but we immediately bought a case of water and used that to drink and brush our teeth instead. Overall the property was clean, conveniently located, well-stocked and Allison was very communicative... even considering my countless annoying questions as I was a homeaway novice. Regardless, it was a wonderful first time homeaway experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a great review Aisha! I wish we had known about the sulfur smell as we have a VERY expensive system that takes care of it! From time to time and in the event of an outage from storms or what not in the area (and there were during October) it may need to be reset. It really is such a simple fix. Glad to hear everything else was perfect and we hope you return again soon! Alison

Beautiful Property, Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Hello, we stayed at this house for almost a full week. The house did not disappoint! Most of us were coming from Florida and by the time we arrived we were at ease with how pleasant everything was. The views were incredible and especially this time of year with the foliage and all. I even sent a picture to the owner if they wanted to use on their website it was that incredible. As far as the house itself- REALLY nice :) My mother and family all loved it and we had a really great time. There were a few things that felt like a bonus as they didn't show in the pictures such as new flooring and dining room table and what seemed to be all new carpeting in the bedrooms as well (smelled brand new and nicer and different from the pictures). Only thing when we first got there was we couldn't figure out how to get the cable part of the TV on. I called the owner that night, she picked up right away and then directed me to her husband who was patient and quite pleasant. It wound up being a really simple setting or something like that. Overall, as you can tell- our family would definitely recommend this property for many reasons!

Owner's Response: Thank you Nicole for taking the time to give your positive feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! To update you on the pic you sent us, it has since been used as a Lakeview pic from the house, thank you again so much for sending during such a beautiful time of year! We are so glad you enjoyed and we hope that you return again soon as we do offer a discount to repeat renters. We are also in the process of updating our pictures both inside and out to reflect the beautiful and higher end upgrades your group was of the first to enjoy. Thank you again for renting with us and we hope that you return again soon! Alison

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.
