Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 2.5 bath mountainside townhouse that easily sleeps 10.

Welcome to Alpine Escape! Enjoy incredibly easy access to some of the best skiing in New York. This home has all the extras and finishing touches that will make your vacation great, and it's only a short 1/4 mile walk to the slopeside drop off area where Wonderama and Lower Wipeout trails merge.

On the main level, the recently remodeled kitchen features custom shaker cabinets, beautiful granite countertops and all the cookware and extras you could want. Australian Cypress hardwood flooring is beautiful and comfortable, and the slate backsplash and LED undercounter lighting make this kitchen a cook's dream. The breakfast bar easily seats 4 and the dining table seats 6 or expands for more so you can all enjoy meal time together. The table leaves are self storing in the table and there are additional chairs in the lower level queen bedroom. The custom made antique ski and wine bottle chandelier is truly one of a kind. The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area in this open concept floor plan. Enjoy the comfortable couch and recliner and kick back and watch some movies on the Smart TV. The living room also has a Play Station 3 with lots of pre-loaded games, and it will also play DVDs and Bluray. If you really want to get cozy, relax by a nice warm woodburning fire. There is also a large deck off the main level. There is a Weber gas grill and Adirondack chairs so you can grill and sit comfortably with a nice view of the mountain woods. The main level has a half bathroom. For skiers, its important to note that there is also a large ski room that is the first room you enter coming in the front door. It is heated and features numerous ski racks, coat racks, and cubbies for your boots, helmets, etc...

Alpine Escape has 3 bedrooms and two sleeping lofts. The Master bedroom, on the upper level has a queen sized bed, and plenty of floor space. It has a dresser and large closet for storage. There is also a sleeping loft on the upper level with a full size bed and two twin size futons. The futons are normally set up as chairs but can be converted into comfortable twin mattresses. Both futons are in the loft with the twin bed and set up as chairs, but if you want to set them up as beds one of them will have to move to the adjacent loft area. Please note that this is a loft - not a private bedroom and is open to the rest of the floor. It is a great place for kids to sleep. The master bathroom is also on the upper level and it has a jetted tub and a separate shower with steam shower option.

On the lower level, there are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size bed, with plenty of additional floor space if you want to bring sleeping bags or a Pack n Play. It also has a dresser and closet for storage. The other bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds to sleep 4. There is a closet and some under-bed drawers for storage. The lower level bedrooms share a full bathroom with a large tub/shower combo. There is also a laundry room on the lower level with washer and dryer.

Contact us by phone or e-mail if you are interested in a half season. The half season rate is $10000.00 With the half season you would split the season with the owner and we would not rent to anyone else. Storage would be made available to you throughout the season so that you wouldn't have to transport your ski equipment and clothing back and forth throughout the season. Weeks/weekends would be split through mutual agreement with the owner.

About Pete Hegedus

We are a family of four that love to ski! With our permanent home and work in the NYC metro area, Windham is a great get away for our family. We hope that you will enjoy it every bit as much as we do.

Pete Hegedus purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Pete Hegedus chose Catskills

Alpine Escape and the whole Brainaird Ridge development is the perfect place for us. Although it's a townhouse, you feel like you're in your own very private home and it is a very easy walk to the slope side so you can step into your skis and ski down to the lodge at Windham. Brainard Ridge gave us much more privacy than Windham Mountain Village, and although it's a little deceiving, it's just as close!

What makes this townhome unique

Our home has lots of great details such as the custom made antique ski & wine bottle chandelier, a newly remodeled kitchens and other great features.

Convenient location, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great townhouse in a location close to the Windham resort and down town. Loved the back deck! Beds are all comfortable. Townhouse is well stocked and most important clean. The owners were very easy to work with. We not only recommend but would go back again.

Alpine Escape Was A Fantastic Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners Peter & Lynne were very helpful and accomadating. If we had questions on things they were quick to respond to us. The townhouse was very clean & neat. Kitchen was fully stocked. The steam shower off the main bedroom was very refreshing. The Master Bed was very comfortable. A very relaxing, peaceful vacation.

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here to attend the Mountain Jam festival on Hunter Mountain in the month of June. The house had everything we needed and was very nicely maintained. We are interested in returning during the ski season. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that there was not AC in the unit and given the time of year, it was hot (there are 2 ceiling fans but they did little to provide comfort considering the hot weekend.) Overall, great find and imagine it to be perfect for a ski weekend!

Owner's Response: Erica, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay, and I'm sorry if it was a little warm in the house - it was an unusually warm weekend. Where we are on the mountain, it is very unusual to need air conditioning as the high elevation typically keeps the mountain air cool. Let me know if you are interested in renting during ski season. Best, Pete

Great stay for our Golf Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for our Catskill golf weekend, conveniently located close to several golf courses and only minutes from main street Windham. The condo is awesome, clean and comfortable.

Great place for families!

We stayed at Alpine Escape over the

President's holiday weekend.

The townhouse was spacious and very comfortable. We skied, cooked most meals in the condo, and just hung out. It was very relaxing. Highly recommended.

Escape to Windham with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at the Alpine Escape. The home had all the essentials and so much more. The owner was also highly responsive and great to work with. The home was very spacious with a nice open floor plan. The living room as well as dining area could accommodate all seven us very nicely. We even had plenty of room for dinner guests one night. It was great to have all of the comforts of home including high speed wireless internet and a smart TV with access to Netflix. The master bedroom even had chargers for iPhones. The fireplace was great and came fully equipped with wood and fire starting materials. The bunk beds were a huge success for the kids aged 7, 7 and 3. All the beds were extremely comfortable and firm and there were plenty of blankets and pillows.The kitchen had all the utensils that you could need plus was quite well stocked. The place also had excellent shower pressure. We would definitely rent from Pete again! Thanks for a great weekend get away!
