about the house: This is an 1800's boarding house remodeled for your comfort and to experience history! The House was the vacation resort in the Catskills. The 'Husband Train' once stopped here to drop off the husbands for the weekend while the family stayed all summer or winter season. The energy is great! The water and air purer than most! The country is soothing and fun. We are on an underground lake and enjoy the spring water for drinking and bathing. You will notice the difference in your health and stress level the very first day of your stay! Our little stream along the house provides soothing sound and beautiful setting while relaxing outside on our wrap around decking and comfy chairs. One of our largest decks is through the french doors from the country kitchen where you will find several comfortable tables and chairs & a couple of BBQ's to use. This house is about : ENJOYMENT AND FUN! Some of our guests love it so much they don't even leave the house during their stay.
What is fun to do here?: You may even hike along the stream up to the waterfalls, caves and mountains out back of and including our property that is adjacent to state park land for your enjoyment.Up the mountain is swimming in nature or you may go to the local pool and workout rooms in the local hotel for a small fee. The North & South Lakes and the famous Haines Falls are two popular features within 10-20 minutes from the house. You may rent Kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, row boats, or just lay in the sun and swim. You may climb the biggest waterfall in NY or just rest in the cool mist from the water. Hiking is great here as you will become a fan immediately! Bring your camera! If you like to fish, we always have time to catch a trout from our clean waters for dinner! In the winter , skiing and snow boarding, snow shoeing and tubing, and much more. Every winter pleasure is within minutes of our house, or you may stay in and build a snowman or watch through french doors in front of a cozy fireplace.

We enjoyed having Fiona and her guests and hope they come back every New Year Weekend. They are clean, courteous , and kind! Happy 201! Thanks to this group of lovely people.
I have rented this home two years in a row now and I hope to rent it every year! The owners are so fantastic to deal with and make us feel very welcome. The home is absolutely beautiful, well kept and very cozy. There is a ton of space for a group with a pool table, bar and commercial kitchen. This was such a great find!
We stayed at the house this past weekend with 9 other friends, 11 of us total. We found the home to be very comfortable, warm and relaxing. The kitchen is large and easy to work in and plenty of room for us to eat together and enjoy each other's company. The location to Hunter was great for our skiers/snowboarders. The pool table was great fun for "pool tournaments" and we were very comfortable in the large living room. What's unique about the house is that although the downstairs is very large, the seating is comfortably arranged so that you still feel like you are all together, but spread out at the same time. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are a good size. It's true the house needs some work, it is a restoration project in the works. But the bathrooms are clean and convenient, the kitchen is large, the front porch is welcoming. If you are looking for something very new or perfectly put together, this may not be the house for you. But if you are looking for comfortable, warm and cozy accommodations to eat, drink and spend time with good friends, this house is a very good choice.
I planned a trip for a group of eleven, including myself, to visit Hunter Mt for a NYE ski weekend. For New Years Eve, this house is perfect! It's a very large house with plenty space for the whole group. The living room area is charming and cozy. The bar area has plenty of table space and a pool table. It's really an ideal place for a party. Although the weather was too warm to ski, there was still plenty to do in and around the house. We're a group of avid cooks so we absolutely loved the commercial style kitchen. We had everything we needed to cook. The owners leave fun things around the house like magazines and a box of instruments. Three of the guys brought their own guitars so we all had a blast jumping in with tambourines. We hooked up our chomecast to the TV and played music throughout the house. Pretty anything we needed was right at the house. Rich, one of the owners, was only a stone throw away so he was available whenever we needed him. Overall, it was a great stay and we all left very happy. Thanks Rich and Lorry!
We were shocked at the condition of this property ...the listing description is totally inaccurate. The house was DIRTY..we could not see out the windows thru the layer of filth. There were paint cans and wires hanging from the ceiling in the entry. In the yard were rusting objects and what looked to be old machinery. We did not see the 'babbling' stream in the description or the acres of land to roam on. There was no a/c in the bedrooms upstairs and some of the screens were torn so bugs became an issue along with the 90degree weather. The only good thing about this property is its location in the Hudson valley. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone.
This is an amazing place to stay. The people are fantastic to deal with and it is perfectly situated between a town and Hunter Mountain. My friends and I found this place cozy and comfortable and it's an excellent space. Definitely want to stay there again!
