About Derek 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 Dailey purchased this house in 2000

Why Derek 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.

Perfect For Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our Christmas ski vacation getaway and could not have asked for more. My parents, and inlaws (and yes, it was enjoyable even with them!), and our family of five enjoyed our stay here from start to finish. I had a few concerns and questions before booking the house. Alison was always quick and courteous to respond. After booking we received all other pertinent and helpful information. Upon arrival at the house (which was 2 hours for us as we live in Westchester County), all of us were quite pleased! The house was clean from top to bottom (there are three levels in the house so literally top to bottom). We were most pleasantly surprised by a few things that weren't in the pictures such as new hardwood flooring in the downstairs main area and the furniture in the living room and dining room was different as well- definitely new and very nice. Leather sofas. Beautiful dining chairs. Everyone was comfortable the entire stay and we all agreed how comfortable the beds were. We have rented a few houses before and this one just felt a 'step up' from the others while staying in the same price range. Needless to stay we would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a gorgeous place to stay for a ski or holiday vacation. We are already discussing a return trip next year!

Great Getaway Ski House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house and a fantastic weekend was had by us all. The house is really nice and well kept. Beds and rooms all ultra comfortable and clean. We made fires in the woodburning stove and cooked and enjoyed some wine over a truly incredible view of the mountain. Really amazing. We even used the grill right outside the main floor entrance on the deck. I would imagine the summertime is just as impressive with the lake and mountain as a backdrop. We loved the skiing and loved this house. Thank You.

Gorgeous House and Property/View

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently traveled to the Catskills to spend a ski weekend together. The experience booking right through to checking out (and receiving our deposit back within the 10 days, no questions asked) was more than we could've asked for. Yes, the skiing great! But the house was most pleasurable to come ''home'' to from the moment we walked in. Wow. The layout is such that you are never really bumping into each other. There is plenty of space on all three floors. Each floor just great. There is a beautifully vaulted and lighted ceiling on the main (top) floor. I don't think we saw this in any of the pictures but it is gorgeous with the backdrop of the mountain behind it. Breathtaking really. The furniture was really nice and pleasure for our group to gather around the dining room table and in the living room area. The bedrooms- so nice! Comfortable and cozy yet so fresh and clean and updated. There are these really nice, rustic wooden headboards to each of the beds. The beds themselves you could almost melt into. The lower level is just as nice as the other two with wood flooring in the main area so it felt quite clean down there. What looked like a new or update bathroom down there and the bedrooms and beds just the same as the other two upstairs. And all with the same incredible view. Such a treat for us coming from NYC area. To be able to capture the beauty of the mountains from almost anywhere in the house was pretty spectacular and made for a most enjoyable weekend. We would absolutely love to return again next year or potentially sooner!

Beautiful Mountain View House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in the Catskills. The house was in great condition, clean, comfortable and exactly what we were looking for. Our only problem was that we didn't have enough time...we stayed 2 nights and would gladly have stayed longer!

When we first arrived, we realized that we misplaced the front door code. We left a message letting the owner know the situation and within a couple minutes we received a call back. We also had additional questions throughout our stay and the owner was very responsive and helpful.

The house is in the perfect location. Close to town yet it still felt like we were in the mountains as it is surrounded by trees and a beautiful pond. Most of our time at the house was spent on the gorgeous wrap around porch overlooking the pond. We originally booked the house in this location so we could easily access some hiking and enjoy the outdoors but we found ourselves not wanting to leave the house! We can easily say we will return again (hopefully) soon!

Thank you for a great stay!

Lovely Home and Great Experience, Will Return

  • 5 of 5

We have already planned a return trip in February to ski with our family as we really enjoyed our experience here this past Thanksgiving (thanks Allison). We had a really great time and the house felt 'luxurious' in many ways! The house was warm and cozy but very clean and very fresh feeling. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was clean. The bedrooms were beautiful! The beds themselves were so comfortable it was hard getting out :-) Immaculately clean and hotel-like feeling. And we couldn't stop raving about the views! We cooked, watched tv, had cocktails and played games. Only thing was the coffee pot seemed to have an issue and we tried our best to trouble shoot. A few in our group including myself, can't live without it and we made a call to Allison who had someone at the front door within a couple of hours with a new coffee maker- that's service! Very much looking forward to skiing and staying here again next month!

Most Enjoyable Stay- Recommended

  • 5 of 5

10 of us got together from the NYC/NJ and Upstate area for this weekend and we had an excellent time. We booked with Allison who made the process smooth from start to finish and promptly returned our deposit, which was refreshing. The house itself is on a property with views that really wowed us all. The inside was very clean and well set up with plenty of towels and the beds were quite luxurious. Lots of updates to the house and I can say the pictures didn't even do it much justice...really beautiful in person and a perfect compliment to the mountain and lake views from every door you look out onto. We made campfires, fished in the lake and used the inflatable boat as well. I think we all agree we would recommend this house and property so much that we have already booked it again this winter for a ski trip. Really looking forward to it.

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.

Other Activities: Snowboarding,
