THE XENIA in Windham

The many famous reasons for visiting Windham in the Catskill Mountains are all within short driving distances from this spacious, quiet and private mountain home. Whether hiking, bicycling, strolling to the neighbor's animal farm, skiing, hunting, seeking nature at its best or just relaxing and rejuvenating, you will enjoy the serenity of our idyllic location.

This family get away is situated on a 5.5 acre private land with forest, and a huge well groomed lawn for kids of all ages to enjoy. There is a fire pit with a picnic table for your entertainment, and an outdoor Jacuzzi, basketball hoop, along with all the amenities that the house has to offer. You can find year round activities to venture in or simply enjoy the privacy of the house with the company of your friends and family.

'The Xenia' is within moments, (5 min) to the famous Windham Mountain Ski Resort, and 15 minutes to the more challenging Hunter Mountain Ski Resort, and picturesque Hunter village. Windham is ideal for the golf lovers, with its Country Club's 18-hole golf course. You can also stroll along Main Street, browsing at a variety of antique stores, fine art galleries and exquisite restaurants and bars. There are mountain trails for bicycling, hiking, and snowmobiling just 10 minutes away, including the famous Windham High Peak - Burnt Knob Loop.

River fishing, and swimming is just 30 minutes away at Kaaterskill Creek with its famous swimming holes. Nearby you can also find the Zoom Flume water park, and the Windham Adventure Park with its rock-climbing, Bungee trampoline, Paintballing and Skateboarding. You can find horseback riding farms and petting animal farms nearby. A scenic driving distance, (30 min) to historic and artistic town of Hudson, passing through the famous Rip Van Winkle bridge over breathtaking views of Hudson River, can satisfy anyone's artistic skills in photography and antiquing.

'The Xenia' is a retreat for all tastes. The spacious entertainment and gaming room has an 8.5' pro billiard table, a ping pong table, a game table for cards and board games, a 50' flat screen TV with satellite and Blu-ray with a 5.1 channel surround sound system, as well as an in-ceiling stereo system for blasting your favorite tunes. There is a WIFI connection throughout the house with blazing speeds. For those cold winter days there is also a cast iron wood-burning stove.

The house features a fully equipped large kitchen with cookware and utensils, including spices, condiments, and even an array of teas and coffees. It includes an eat-in dinning set, microwave, toaster, Panini press, coffee maker, cappuccino/espresso maker, hand mixer, and a counter top food processor. The spacious dining area seats 10. The large French door opens to a deck with a gas grill and a dining set for enjoying your meals 'al fresco' style. After all, this is the reason for your stay, to breath fresh air, and the aromas of the forest that surrounds you.

There are three full bathrooms: one in the master suite on the first floor with a whirlpool and a shower cabin, one in the first floor hallway with a bathtub/shower, and one on the second floor with a shower cabin. Every bathroom is supplied with a hair dryer, hand soap and towels.

There are four bedrooms in the house: The master bedroom features a queen size bed, a sofa and a His and Hers bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and a day bed with trundle. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds and a day bed with trundle. There is also a sitting area on the second floor that has a queen size sofa futon that converts into a bed. In that same seating area there is a TV and an office with a desktop computer and a printer. We even supply the paper!

We supply all the linens too!

Two more twin mattresses can be made available upon request.

There is plenty of space in the three living rooms to relax, hang out, watch TV, or read a book, while the kids play in the entertainment room.

The XENIA, (hospitality in Greek) is the perfect retreat. Just pack a few things and go. We take care of all the rest. We wish you an unforgettable stay!!!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway! Plenty of room and sleeping arrangements for our eleven adults and one child with room to spare. Lots of dining and gathering areas as well as nooks for those who wanted a little time alone. This spacious mountain house was exactly what we wanted for solitude yet the quaint town just five minutes away provided all we needed to keep well-stocked with food and drinks. The hot tub was divine! Roula and Chris were extremely available, responsive and accommodating. Five stars all around for the Xenia! We’ll be going back next year.

Perfect for a getaway with friends, great in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Roula's for 3 nights with a few of my friends for our annual reunion. We had a great time. The house itself is great, has everything one needs to cook a nice meal, for entertainment (hottub, pingpong table, pool table, TV and sound system, games), very comfortable sleeping arrangements. The house comfortably sleeps 16, not counting couches. We had no issues at all with heat or hot water which we often face in the winter with mountain houses. Everything was also very clean and organized. We loved having the open green lawn outside for morning yoga and a bonfire at night. The place is very close to town so in case you forget to get any necessities you can grab them easily. It is also very close to beautiful Elm Ridge hiking trails. Highly recommend this place and would love to stay here again soon.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding in Gilboa about 20 minutes away which worked out great. Plus there is so much to do here we ran out of time. Drive to Woodstock to eat and hike a few trails. Did the kaayerskils falls hike, the elm forest hike 6 mile round trip hike plus a few more. Then hit the hot tub at the house. The restaurants recommended by the wine/liquor store lady were great. Brandywine pasta on Wednesday , Captains overlook on Thursday plus Mikes dinner for breakfast and the excellent French bakery opened on weekends only can't be missed Great time great home. Thanks

We all were mostly happy with the place accept for the deck area.

  • 4 of 5

We had good time and enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit but were disappointed with the deck area. Inside of the home was clean and kitchen was equipped. Deck area definitely needs major work. Paint has come of the wood and looks horrible. I will not rent this house unless the owners take care of the deck.
