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.

Beautiful place to wake up in the morning...

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house with a light filled, loft-like upstairs suite - you really do wake up to a vertical horizon of trees reaching to the sky. Feels perfectly secluded from the rest of the world.

Fantastic Mountain House Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We spent the Labor Day holiday weekend there with another couple and couldn't have been happier. The house is located on a secluded private road away from any major roads. Every window had a view of trees and we felt completely alone. We spent our time sitting on the deck and then hanging around the fire pit at night. The house is in walking distance from the fox hollow trail and close driving distance to Phoenicia and other Catskill Mountain trails. The kitchen was in need of a little more pots and pans, but the house overall was very comfy and roomy for two couples. The owner was very responsive and also very helpful. Enjoy it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. Based on your feedback, we added a bunch of pots and pans and added a number of other kitchen items. This is a bright open kitchen with sit down bar and adjacent dining room. Great place to gather for breakfast or dinner. Thanks again!

Lovely House, Great Setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here and really loved it. Coming from New York City, we were looking to spend quiet time in the country. Rooms are large...even larger than we expected from the photos. Everything we could possibly have wanted was provided, and more. We relaxed, barbecued, drove into Phoenicia and watched videos on the incredibly comfortable sofa. A perfect retreat in a lovely setting.
