This is a beautiful, private and spacious home in Cairo that we call Casa Montaña which translates to Mountain House.
The house is surrounded by gorgeous mountain views and is set on 2 acres on a long private road. There is a large multi level sun deck in the back of the house, with an outdoor shower, and a screened in furnished gazebo. The front has a long balcony with spectacular mountain views. There are plenty of quiet spaces and nooks where you can relax and read a good book or take a little nap.
Casa Montaña was built to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while being indoors all year long but especially during the winter months. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while birdwatching cardinals, hummingbirds, blue jays and other gorgeous birds all while inside the popular four seasons room. At night, you can star gaze from inside or out while you enjoy a glass of wine or a hot cocoa by a roaring fire.
Cooks will enjoy cooking in our fully equipped kitchen that includes a great cookbook collection and an open dining area over looking the back decks. The kitchen has a 12 foot counter where you can watch the cook prepare dinner or cook together.
Take a walk on the property and you will encounter wild flowers, large pines, and stunning 360 degree mountain views and if you're lucky, maybe you'll see a family of deer, rabbits or wild turkeys. There are a several peaceful spots to sit with a book along the rock wall and a small creek to enjoy during warm months. In the winter, snow shoe around the property or cross country ski.
There are 3 en suite bedrooms with brand new comfortable beds and pillow top mattresses. All linens and towels are provided. The master suite has a soaking tub and a queen size bed with an amazing view of giant pine trees and you can watch the sunrise right from the bed!
The 2 comfortable guest rooms have full sized beds and lead right on to the balcony and spectacular mountain views. All bedrooms have bathrooms and ipod docking stations/players.

In addition to that, there is a large Sun room with a queen sized bed and feather top mattress that uses a portable heater in winter months and portable fans during the warmer months. In this room you can feel like you're sleeping in the woods with it's 8 foot windows. The house can comfortably sleep 11 guests in beds and has an outdoor shower (a must!) to enjoy in the summer months.
The living room is large with an amazing wood burning stove set in a double sided stone wall. There is a dvd player, a flat screen tv and a video library as well as many games for children and guests of all ages to enjoy. In addition, there are magazines, books and an Ipod system.
You are surrounded by nature everywhere here at Casa Montaña and can hike in the woods around the property or enjoy one of many mountain or Hudson River hikes near by.
There is a unique feeling of seclusion here at Casa Montaña, but the rest of the world is just a short distance away. We are near Windham and Hunter Mountain Ski Slopes (16 - 20 miles). You can go antiquing in Hudson or head to Woodstock for a great lunch or dinner. The light house in Saugerties is nearby and you can Kayak or take a dip in the river while exploring the light house in the warmer months.
Our home is very tranquil and you can truly unwind here with all the comforts of home.
Catering is available upon request. For an additional fee, you can have the refrigerator filled with your favorite foods or fresh home cooked meals or maybe a welcoming cheese and fruit platter with a glass of bubbly.
We know that you will enjoy Casa Montaña as much as we do.

Juliean purchased this chalet in 2010
The Catskill region provided us with the peace and tranquility we were searching for. The house speaks for itself! The location is close enough for a short weekend stay yet far enough to come and stay for a week and feel like you are miles and miles away on vacation.
We are often told our home is very special and we like to think so as well. Come and see for yourself!
You can enjoy relaxing, cooking, reading meditating, Yoga (nearby) Bird watching, and going for long walks in the woods. Enjoy a nice weekend away from the city alone or with family and friends. Go swimming, hiking, antiquing, skiing and other snow activities, dining and exploring, or Do absolutely nothing!
Casa Montana was wonderful! Even though it was rainy for most of the weekend, we still felt like we were in nature because of the two rooms with the giant windows that made you feel like you were surrounded by trees. Loved building fires in the wood burning stove and Juliean made sure to leave more than enough firewood for all our needs. All of the rooms were charming and had nice linens. The kitchen was huge and had everything you needed to cook. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to get away from the city!!
Just a great roomy place tucked in the foothills of the mountains. Quiet, peaceful, and cool. Family of five, all grown up, and plenty of space. Lots to do nearby. The owner was great, the place was clean and spacious. Couple of deer nearby eating apples every night, fox, birds. A gem.
Amazing place, tucked away in a private and large location, so you feel very secluded. Was perfectly suited for two couples (though the 3 bed/3 bath combination can easily serve more people) and the deck out back was awesome at night for cooking and relaxing. The owner was extremely responsive and easy to deal with, thank you for that - looking forward to our next visit!
This was our 2nd time we have stayed at la montana and this time was just as great. The kids were able to mountain bike within 5 minutes and we liked the access to the fresh produce stands. The little ones enjoyed the beach at the nearby lake. With the gazebo there was peace when needed. . We will go back in the future. .
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend alone and we experienced exactly what we wanted -- absolute peace and quiet, beautiful country mountain views, a beautifully-equipped kitchen and nicely-decorated living space. I loved the four season room the most and read and read and wrote. We never saw another person or car, yet once we understood our location, found it convenient to all in both Catskill and Hudson. I enjoyed walking around the house both indoors and outside, and found it also the perfect space for meditation and yoga. My husband found a good golf course and enjoyed the four season room and also the outdoor back patio, where he found the best view. I recommend this house to singles or couples who appreciate quiet and tranquility in the upstate country mountains.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Montana. The house was very clean and had all the amenities. The kitchen is spacious and the outside pagoda a lovely spot to sit and read. There is a large grassy area to the side of the property, which we didn't have time to enjoy but looks very inviting for a picnic in good weather. Each bedroom had its own bath, which was a priority for us because we knew we would all be getting dressed for a wedding at the same time. All in all, we would definately return to Casa Montana -- six adults without any complaints! That in itself is amazing!
