Stephentown Center House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14-18)

This ultra-private ski ranch is situated on 52-wooded acres and is located one quarter mile from NY Route 22 in Rennselaer County just 10 minutes from the Massachusetts boarder and 20 minutes from the Vermont border.

Several ski areas are accessible from the house including Jiminy Peak, Bosquet Mountain, Catamount, Butternut, Windham and Mt. Snow and Killington to the north.

The home is roundly 4500 square feet with a five-car heated garage, swimming pool, hot tub, satellite TV/radio, multi-room sound system and is situated on three levels with four bedrooms and sleeps roundly 8-adults privately and can easily accommodate up to 18-people when considering other areas that can be utilized for overnight accommodation.

The third floor is configured with three bedrooms with full baths on-suite, the second floor is configured with one bedroom, the great room, the den, the cocktail nook, the kitchen, the hot tub room, the mud room, two fireplaces and a bathroom with shower.

Finally, the first floor which is a finished basement is configured with a den, a bunk room and laundry room with premium high capacity front loading washer/dryer.

The house is equipped with two sets of quality bedding for each bed and plush towels. These rooms are quite spacious and if necessary a port-a-crib or air mattress(es) can be put in each to accommodate kids who need to be close to Mom and Dad.

The chef’s kitchen fully equipped with All-Clad and Le Crueset cookware, Reidel stemware and place settings for 12 from Bennington Potters, serving plates, bowls, utensils, top of the line stainless steel appliances, indoor grilling capability and most every cooking gadget imaginable for mixing, baking, smoothie making, juicing etc.

The great room with fireside dining table seats up to 12 and the cocktail nook seats up to 10 so family and friends can socialize on those après ski afternoons while a pot of chili is cooking and cocktails are being served!

The den features a fireplace, two leather sofas and a large screen television with DVR, DVD, satellite TV/radio, Guitar Hero, Wii, a movie collection and several board games. It’s the ultimate spot to cozy up as the snow falls and the wind blows across the Berkshire Mountains.

The hot tub room has a seating area and hot tub that can accommodate up to six adults and is complete with towels. The mud room has an entry way with bin storage for ski equipment, winter boots, gloves, hats etc.

The house has spectacular views and is decorated in a western/adirondack/camp theme and is filled with art, rugs, books, furniture and conversation pieces from all over the world.

fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

my family and i enjoyed a weekend full of beautiful weather, great views and a very comfortable home. The house was exceptionally clean, with a fully stocked kitchen of all the utensils needed to prepare a meal. The bedrooms were very spacious with a full bath in each of the upstairs bedrooms! very nice! the pool was well kept, clean and quite large with chairs and chase lounges and tables surrounding it. This place is absolutely fabulous and we plan to book again for next year for our family get away and reunion. Since we ski we didnt realize just how close it was to Jiminy Peak so will keep in mind for winter as well.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Margaret,

Our family sends a big thank you for the wonderful vacation we had at your home. It was truly a relaxing and fun-filled time. The grandchildren spent most of their time in the pool, of course, but also managed some exciting whiffle ball games and the much less athletic games of Scrabble with the adults.

Our grandchildren say thank you in their own special way...they are sending a photo of themselves wearing the sombrero collection!

Many thanks, again, to you and Al.

Best regards,

Really nice experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a gathering of five families with kids stay at this house for a few nights in June. The rooms are really spacious, comfortable, and clean. The house has great "country style" decor all around, as well. It really gives you the feeling that you've left the hustle and bustle behind. The house was also well-stocked with all sorts of kitchen items, games, etc. The pool was clean and big (well, for city folks, at least), with a nice shallow 3' end for kids. We had a very relaxing time just hanging out on the covered front porch and grilling up some meat. We didn't use of any of the boats or other things the house has, nor did we venture beyond the vast piece of property itself, but I think more adventurous folks would have something to enjoy in that regard. The owners were very responsive and took the time to give me a thorough orientation over the phone right before our stay (without my asking!). For me personally, it was my first house rental anywhere, and I thought it was an unequivocally positive experience all around.
