Wonderful Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of four adults had a great stay at Isaac's - 3 nights four days over the July 4th weekend. The place is not big but as a family it was fine. It is off the main road so it is very quiet. The deck was great, we had two great meals there drinking wine and talking - and yes steak tastes so much better when grilled outside. The main living room is comfortable (I slept there one night) and the open kitchen with an island is good for hanging around. The tv is not exactly flat screen but we got to watch two old movies from Isaac's great collection of VHSs and DVDs. The upstairs is very nice - sort of mid-century meets country; but we ended up spending most our time downstairs playing monopoly and scrabble. We brought our own bluetooth Bose mini-speaker but Isaac already has one so you don't need one for music. From the house we visited the Kaaterskill Falls (a must) and Woodstock and ate at the Phoenicia Diner and the Peekamoose Restaurant both restaurants are highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you Don and I'm glad you guys had a nice Fourth of July holiday. This time of year I love grilling out on the deck too. So relaxing with the creek in the background. I'm looking to add a 4K flatscreen upstairs very soon, just taking my time to do it right and keep the character the same up there. Also thanks for the feedback on the movies. I get most of them at thrift stores in my neighborhood and am constantly adding to the collection :-)

Charming Cabin

We had a great stay! It was too cold to spend much time outside but waking up among such a beautiful view was a pleasure.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from 4 days at Isaac's house. Great house, in the middle of the mountains. Beautiful views of snowed slopes. Everything works well and the movie collection is a great plus!! We used it as a base for skiing and the drive to Belleayre was very easy and short. Highly recommend it. Isaac is extremely responsive.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good skiing weekend and thanks again for the positive review! I've built up a decent collection of classic and hard to find movies. Always happy to hear when other people enjoy it too!

Cozy, clean home in a beautiful, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic weekend on Panther Mountain. Isaac's home is comfortable and inviting and tucked away yet within walking distance of hiking trails. The upstairs loft with skylights is a special bonus.
