Idyllic Mountain Getaway Sleeps 22 Amenity Packed
Why Derrek chose Windham
It all started as a gift, an anniversary gift in fact, from our Grandparents to each-other, and ultimately to their family to celebrate 25 years of marriage. This gift, which eventually became known to the family, as "The Mountain House", was built to provide a wonderful place where their family, could come together for holidays and getaways to enjoy all that Windham and the Catskills had to offer. As the family grew, through 12 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren, so too, through 3 extensive renovations and various upgrades, did The Mountain House. Today, we offer this gift to our guests to come together with their families, friends and colleagues to enjoy all of the amenities of The Mountain House as well as the activities and wonders of the beautiful surrounding area.

Fantastic Home for a Large Group Retreat
We return year after year to this home for our company ski weekend. The home is beautiful, well equipped, comfortable and very spacious. I highly recommend it for large families, friends or corporate retreats. There is plenty of room to spread out. The location is ideal and the property is lovely. We will be back again next year! Derrek is a wonderful host who answers all of your questions or needs ASAP! He also has a long list of recommendations of activities for everyone depending on what you want to do during your stay.
Perfect vacation home with amazing views and local attractions
The Mountain House was the perfect home to host our trip. The house was spacious, cozy, clean, and equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen. The location is conveniently located next to Windham Mountain, and a short drive away from local town, and just 20 mins away from Hunter Mountain. The game room on the ground level provided enough entertainment for both kids and adults, and the hot tub was the perfect way to end our day after hitting the slopes! We also loved the kitchen and cooked most of our meals there! The hosts were very helpful and answered all of my questions before booking, during the planning process, and over the course of our stay. Derrek also helped us arrange for breakfast to be delivered from a local breakfast caterer, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, we loved our stay and the Mountain House will be our first choice when we revisit in the future!
Jin, Thank you for such a thoughtful review! We look forward to having you back to The Mountain House. Just let me know when you want to come back!
Expansive, Comfortable house in beautiful setting
We had a wonderful long weekend with extended family. It was so great to all be under one roof for dinners cooked in the chefs kitchen, but plenty of space for us all to relax on our own as well. We enjoyed the fair in town, so close to the house! Yet once we were at the mountain house, it seemed as if we were on a private compound miles from other people.
I enjoyed views of the pond reflecting the changing trees. The jacuzzi was perfect for relieving sore muscles after our hike up Kaaterskill falls. It was also great to have 3 different fire places as well as the outdoor fire pit where we roasted s’mores.
Derrek was helpful and attentive. Can’t wait to come back!
Great stay and amazing kitchen!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Mountain House 3 times this year and cooking in their wonderful chef kitchen. It’s the perfect place to host retreats, large groups and enjoy the gorgeous Catskills views. The house is clean, spacious and cozy. Would highly recommend!
Ideal weekend in Windham
The Mountain House is perfect! We had a flawless family reunion weekend with 28 people in this house. The house was immaculate and the perfect size for our large family. I think our favorite item in the house is the custom built table for 22 people! The swimming pond is exquisite and everyone enjoyed chasing frogs over the rocks. The property is peaceful and expertly landscaped. And the house is walking distance from a cute small town with a convenience store, ice cream, coffee shop and a few restaurants. and We couldn't ask for a better vacation house for our family! We will be back!
Fabulous house for families!
We had a wonderful time at the Mountain House! So much room for two families and the kids loved the games room. The large dining room was perfect for Christmas dinner. Windham is gorgeous and only a few minutes away, definitely check out the Public House if you’re there. Thanks to Derrek and family for sharing their home.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Let us know when you would like to come back!
