The rest of the downstairs has a large living room with a 65” tv and a large stone fireplace, two dining areas, one with wood beams above that seats 10 comfortably but you could squeeze in more depending on how close you get, the other dining area is smaller and is now located in the living room. There is a separate billiards room with a pool table between the living room and the dining room. There is one large entryway leading to an arched staircase and another staircase in the back of the house leading to the other side of the house with beautiful views. There are two half bathrooms downstairs. A laundry room leads you outdoors to the hot tub and deck. Upstairs is a master king-sized bedroom and attached master bath that many say are larger than their NYC apartment and in excellent condition.

Highly Recommend this place!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this house to anyone. We came up here for a long ski weekend and couldn't have been happier with this house. The location is perfect and right near Hunter mountain. The house itself is huge and spacious with a beautiful kitchen; the hot tub after a long day of skiing was also a nice touch! Kris was an excellent host and extremely flexible and easy to deal with. She really made the whole stay enjoyable and I will definitely be recommending this place to friends/family. Thanks again!

Great winter getaway near Hunter and Windham skiin

  • 5 of 5

Just had a marvelous winter vacation at this well appointed house.

We enjoyed the proximity to the nearby skiing and the hot tub with mountain views definitely hit the spot. A few folks even made some laps on the frozen pond and warmed up at the outside firepit.

There is a huge kitchen which made for a great gathering place for the whole crew. The appliances are top notch and we enjoyed the very large kitchen and dining area that was connected to the deck & grill. The house is well kept and is in good shape inside and out.

Finally, the owner, Kris, was more than accommodating and was helpful with knowledge of the local areas.

Upon arrival, the first thing we see is about 10 surveillance cameras all over the home. I understand having a few along the driveway but to intrude on your guests privacy to that degree is absolutely absurd. I have yet too see a home with so many security cameras.

Unfortunately, half of the homes siding was left undone and hanging loose in the back of the property. Because of the construction there were ladders and panels stacked in the back yard and the look was unappealing. Random trailers and tools were laying around the property as well. There was no mention of the home being under construction in the description, nor did Kris try to inform us of the condition of the home before arriving. Unhappy!

We had a horrible experience working with Kris. We had to repeatedly ask for a late check out time on Sunday so that we could spend a little more time in the sun. The best she could do at an extension was 1pm. Her excuses were that she was having “contractors” arrive for further work ON A SUNDAY so we needed to be out by 1. But NO. The only person who arrived was her husband, who was not doing any sort of construction. We did not appreciate the intrusion into our stay.

Prior to our departure we cleaned up after ourselves and did more than the normal guest PAYING A CLEANING FEE is required to do. We left the home w/o damage.

We were ready to leave prior to our 1pm check out time, had the cars packed and ready to go. Unfortunately, one of our friends realized she left her phone inside. While attempting to retrieve the phone the doors (which was equipped with a coded lock to get in and out) were automatically locked and the code to the house changed. This all happened prior to that 1pm check out time. So now we were locked out and unable to retrieve our personal property. We start desperately calling Kris, with no response. After calling numerous times, we get a text message saying “I’m busy and can’t answer the phone.” We retrieved the phone through an open window, and let Kris know. She was rude and unpleasant.

Awaiting our security deposit days later, We asked her multiple times for a time frame without response. She finally does respond and asks us to please leave her alone, she will let us know in a few weeks. A few weeks to inspect the home?? after a long wait she tells us that she’s keeping $430 because we made a campfire that was too big and we used too many towels! Absurd!

NEVER experienced such a careless, rude, unresponsive host.

Owner's Response: Shana’s review is not entirely accurate. Please review my observations & 61 guest reviews with 4.9 avg score. We strive to take care of guests & receive numerous repeat happy clients. In 4yrs, this is the only guest to receive a reduced deposit & didn’t acknowledge damage. A total of 4 cameras protect the property & renters from damage & improve safety. Cameras are in front yard & capture images available from the public street, this isn’t an invasion of privacy. Guest didn’t mention riding motorcycle on manicured lawns at 4am & caused extensive damage. Instead they repeatedly lied & said no one drove a motorcycle on the lawn. Pictures/video show truth. Also cord of wood burned outside in violation of state regs, this amount of wood usually lasts a full season! Left a mess everywhere, broken beer bottles in firepit, wood & trash thrown onto pond ice. Beer spilled located throughout first floor. Pepperoni found underneath a bed. House was left very dirty. The 2nd day,received a call asking to stay later and I ultimately let them stay until 1. Was told they were having so much fun & wanted to stay longer than 1pm. I said work was being done & I couldn’t let them stay longer.At no point did they complain about the house. The contractor (not husband) arrived after 1pm checkout to find renters onsite & left so as not to cause a confrontation. Climbing thru open window means using ladder to climb to 2nd floor balcony & jimmy window/door open after 1pm.This is breaking &entering.I received 2 calls while on the road.I didn’t answer, was driving. In 15 min,I called back. Before I did, I received email alert from surveillance with picture of group hoisting ladder on side of house. They took ladder w/o permission, climbed to 2nd floor & illegally broke into house. I asked how this was acceptable. Respone was to get phone.Again, I asked how this was acceptable. Person didn’t answer,but did hang up on me. I could have mailed the cell phone. Audit shows they didn’t attempt to access house til 1pm even though Shana says they tried to enter earlier& couldn’t get inside. Renter knew there were issues & pushed for refund next day. I didn’t have accurate cost for all the damages after 1 wk. Due to weather contractor unable to finish exterior project before guest arrival, left ladder underneath deck,2 siding pieces missing from back of house,small pile of covered materials on side of large parking lot. In no way was this obtrusive. All work is now complete.

Very pleasant trip!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huge, which is great for our group! It is close to the waterfall, mountain and lakes. The location is great! Too many good things to talk about, the well-equipped kitchen, the barbecue on the deck, the firework place in the backyard, the pond - we just love it! Also it is very friendly to kids - even a high chair was prepared! One suggestion is if there are more entertainment equipment that will be better. It has a pool table, which is nice. Hope to have more things to do in house!

Overall, this is a great place to stay, and we cannot wait to come back this year or next year!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious property that accommodated our part of 17 adults and two babies very comfortably. It rained most of the weekend we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy the outside too much except for a short walk to the pond, but it looked like it had a lot to offer.

Beyond beautiful! Perfect group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my husband's family for his 60th birthday at this beautiful home. The location was perfect and everyone had a blast! The layout of this house is perfect for a large group. We loved dining out on the deck over the rolling hills with a view of the mountain- it was spectacular! With 8 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms everyone had enough space to relax on their own after a day of activities together. The downstairs layout is perfect for socializing and gathering. The kitchen was really spacious and very well stocked with everything needed to feed a large group. We played kickball in the front yard, made samores down at the fire pit, relaxed in the hot tub and played games on the deck after a delicious dinner. It was the perfect family get together weekend. Thank you, Kris for being so helpful and supportive with my weekend plans. We can't wait to return next year!
