I am from the Boston area, studied for a time at Berkley School of Music, studied Acupuncture at the New England School of Acupuncture. I came to N.Y.C. to study acupuncture with a Chinese teacher. and spent nearly twenty-five years practicing Acupuncture . The Ranch was created for peace and relaxation and to be close to nature as possible. We have a swimming pond and a lovely stream near the many riding trails in the woods. The horses are big pets and have free access to most of the property. The Feng shui of this land is so healing that the horses and I are walking around in a meditation state most of the time! And in the winter the Skiing is close by and great!. For fifteen years I taught to Hunter Mountain and bought my house in 2005, convinced that I needed to be as close to the mountains as possible, after living here for the past ten years I am sure that I made the right choice.

Uniquely private with mountain views surrounding the home on a park like setting with horses and mountains just about everywhere you look! The contemporary home a large deck surounding it with chairs for just watching the clouds go by, or go skiing to nearby Hunter Mountain or Windham Mountain. There are two lakes nearby, Nor and South lake for swimming or kayacking and trails for hiking. Breathe in fresh mountain air, as the trees outnumber the people here.
Health treatments available of massage, acupuncture, horse back riding available, minutes to Hunter Mountain Village, or Windham, where there are cinemas, shops, restaurants available. Swimming lake and fishing streams within minutes of our ranch. The uniqueness of our ranch is its privacy and mountain vistas. We are off the beaten path yet close to everything necessary for a great mountain vacation, and in the winter season the house is available from Dec 15th or Dec 30th till April 15th or 30th for the ski season. As soon as I sat in the living room and looked out at the notch in the mountains facing the front door, I was convinced this was the healthiest, most healing spot in the Catskills, yet within minutes of civilization! New York city is only two and a half hours away, so pack your skis and bags and come to stay at our ranch. Say hi to my white stallion, Sundance, uncle Scottie, the quarter horse, and Sundance's son Simon Says. They are available for trail rides on the property.
Really spacious, well equipped and helpful owner made this stay a special time for me and my family. Close to a wondrous swimming lake, we climbed rocks, rode horses and visited Woodstock. We were all happy here. Wish we could have stayed longer.
The house is beautiful! Amazing view of the mountain. It fit our group of 10 comfortably. About a 5 minute drive from Hunter mountain. The upstairs has a wonderful open layout with high ceilings, very spacious. Abby was very helpful and accommodating with any questions we had about the house during the busy holiday weekend - we went up to celebrate New Years Eve. I would absolutely go back, looking forward to it for next year. Had a fantastic experience!! Highly recommend. 10/10 for sure.
We were more than satisfied with the property, which we found clean and well-maintained. The wide open floor plan, the wrap-around patio and floor-to-ceiling patio doors gave us a great view of the mountainside. The temp even warmed up enough to open them for awhile. There are plenty of attractions, restaurants and shopping reasonably nearby. A small negative: The grand piano really adds to the decor -- but it's off-limits. I envisioned constantly shooing away the 2-year-olds, not to mention their parents ("Why can't we play it?") but everyone left it alone. The downstairs is more plain than we expected, but, really, it's only for sleeping since everyone spent most of the time upstairs. The downstairs also leads to the garage (power door-opener) which makes unloading and loading easy especially in bad weather. We would definitely recommend it.
This was by far the worst house we have ever rented. The dishes were dirty and had to be rewashed, the downstairs stunk like rotten garbage which had been left by the previous renters, the owner entered the house without notifying us and showed it to potential buyers, and the list goes on. Truly not worth the money.
It was a good time. Aby was great. The house is lovely. 5 stars 100%.
Nice to be up in the "mountains" and have a "view" otherwise whats the point. Home is spacious, clean with a nice kitchen that has enough plates etc. for a family. There were plenty of towels and consumables. Water pressure in the shower is a bit light but its adequate and the bathroom was clean and big enough to move around in. The living room is very large, light and airy w large sliding glass doors on two walls and a large stone fireplace in the corner which made quite a visual point seen when entering the house and also from the other side of the house. The dining table is large enough for six and the chairs are sturdy. The L/R furniture was quite comfortable which was great because the seating and lounging furniture is oft times a feature that some owners dont consider and can be a real pain, literally, for guests. One of our favorite things aside from enjoying the huge expansive decks which wrap around the house on two sides was to sit and relax in the L/R enjoying the quiet and views through the large glass doors.
We are in a very secluded area surrounded by mountains. Horse pasture around the house with my three horses just look out the windows! the We have a small pond and woods, with a swimming pond up the street a mile away. The horses back riding center is a mile away and skiing three miles away. Blue skies and fresh air with hiking trails everywhere! Massage and acupuncture available on the propertyby appointment.
