About the property

7 BR 4 Bath hilltop Chalet on 26 private acres. Spacious and comfortable.

We are a non-smoking, pet free home. We love pets, but due to many of our guests (or guests in their group) having allergies, we have chosen to remain pet free. Thank you for understanding.

This spectacular mountain retreat is perfectly set up to accommodate family gatherings, corporate retreats, yoga enthusiasts/retreats, friendship reunions and much more. Sky View can comfortably sleep 22 people. Built atop the rolling hills of Old Chatham NY, you'll find peace and relaxation. The views are as spectacular as the setting and the grounds around the home. Enjoy the grounds, two small ponds and many hiking areas in and around the horse barn and corral. The private, 26 acre property, is a short drive to several charming villages, great restaurants, the Town of Hudson, hiking, swimming, fishing, tennis, skate boarding, cross country and downhill skiing and activities for everyone. Albany Airport is only 22 miles from our home. Home is very large yet is wonderfully set up for kids and families to share quiet and cozy spaces. There are three large living areas within the home. Five of the bedrooms have queen size beds. A bunk room on the lower level is perfect for kids young and old alike. All rooms in the house are open, airy and spacious. The Bedrooms on the lowest level have multiple beds. This beautiful getaway spot provides great accommodations, along with dramatic panoramic views of the Berkshires, Catskills and more. Relax in the large family room, enjoy the modern well equipped kitchen....enjoy great dining spaces both inside and out. There is also a large solarium room with wonderful seating for large groups and a separate area for small children. There are also separate, large areas in the house for children or adults needing some private time. The huge, private room over the garage is great for kids and yoga enthusiasts. Enjoy socializing with family and friends on the huge wrap around deck with outdoor dining table and barbecue. Our 5,400 square foot home has three levels, so it is easy to spread out the sleeping quarters but always keeping the focus on the expansive views. The lower level alone can sleep up to 11 people. The two upper level floors are incredibly spacious with separate living areas, large bedrooms and three bathrooms(four in total) . Relax and take in the spectacular natural outdoor scenery. Ask us about adding on daily maid service or a personal chef which can be arranged directly with an outside service at an extra cost. Outdoor recreation includes hiking, nature walks through this private gated estate, bird watching, and fishing in 2 private ponds. (please be sure to bring your fishing equipment.) Local ski resorts are nearby, as are downhill and cross country skiing. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, marvel at the surrounding countryside. Whatever the season, beauty abounds. Visit the nearby nature center, Crellin Park (has separate beach area) and local museums. Golf and tennis are a short drive away, or take part in the various, local music and film festivals, fairs and local activities in and around Chatham and the Hudson Valley. There are a plethora of healthy eating options nearby, grocery stores and wine and cheese shops (all less than ten minutes away). There is also a large, indoor tennis facility (open from October through June) only four miles from the house. Private lessons and clinics are available. Sky View is a spectacular retreat, perfect for you and all in your group. ** The main floor has three bedrooms, two full baths, access to our very large deck and only one step, perfect for elderly guests and entertaining inside or outside.

Please note that although our property is very large and secluded, we ask that you be respectful of our neighbors. No large events, outdoor weddings, prom weekends or other large parties are permitted on the property. This is strictly enforced through our caretakers, who are regularly taking care of the property. Thank you for respecting our guidelines.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2014

Why The Owner chose Chatham

We offer a great experience for every person in every age group. This property is meticulously maintained and offers something for everyone. The views are mesmerizing, as you can see for miles and miles in every direction. It is totally private and an incredible treat for all. But, we are not a wild party house and we discourage very large parties of any type.

What makes this lodge unique

Very large home is perfect for corporate retreats, family reunions, yoga retreats and other gatherings, etc.

Horse stalls and corrals on the property allow you to bring your own horse if you like. Ask us about boarding your horse during your stay or if you would like to arrange a carriage ride. Come stay with us and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“One of the most beautiful homes and properties I have ever visited. The views are really indescribable. The serenity and seclusion are second to none. Every room was well appointed, every feature was beautifully done and the house is very well thought out. Especially the common areas. Great place.”

Great house on a fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a large group of friends consisting of 15 adults and 8 young children rented the property for a long weekend away. The location is a pretty perfect compromise for a group coming from NYC and Boston. The house far exceeded our expectations and the property is remarkably beautiful. Suffice to say, we will be back.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property. Really lived up to the pictures. Only issue was if you left the door open for even 20

Seconds as someone ran outside to grill there would be so many flies and once they were in they were hard to get out.

Beautiful house, lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for family members who came for our son's wedding in August 2018. The house is simply gorgeous. Everything was in perfect condition, the kitchen was large and very well equipped, the bathrooms clean and spacious and there was plenty of room for 7 adults (in 4 bedrooms) and 3 children. Although we spent most of our time at another house near by where the wedding was taking place, we could see that this house would be great for a large group of friends or family. The deck and outside spaces are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous setting for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice house with a great view. We had a family birthday party and the space was perfect for that. We have some criticisms though.

The house is tired and needs some necessary repairs. The deck is about 10 feet off the ground. That’s fine except it was missing a baluster. One of our party was a 17 month old. She could easily fit through that space and fall. A good railing is a must and this deck doesn’t have one. The deck boards are nailed down and most of the nails are backing out. Need to be careful if you expect to go out without shoes.

The house has 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. You’d expect there would be plenty of toilet paper. Not the case. There were no dish towels at all. The sunroom was great but all the windows are balky. You had to coax them to get them to open or close. On the other hand, the screen doors would fall off their tracks.

Wouldn’t take much to make this a 5 star stay.

Can't Say Enough Wonderful Things

  • 5 of 5

My childhood friends and I rented the house for a ski reunion. We were impressed the minute we walked in: the house is beautiful, spacious, immaculate, comfortable, and equipped with everything one could need--a full kitchen, laundry room, etc. The house is large enough and the bedrooms spaced out so well that every family had plenty of privacy and quiet, but there were plenty of common areas to be together. The property itself is also stunning, with magnificent views. The house is on a hill overlooking the area, so you really get an amazing view.

The owner called me several days in advance of our visit to give me some information about our stay (how to get into the house, etc.). She was extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel incredibly welcome. She also checked in with me after we arrived to make sure our stay was going well. We had to call her once during the visit and she was receptive and exceptionally helpful.

The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the location is wonderful. It is near charming towns, near the mountains/skiing and other great activities. A great central location for people coming from different directions, as we did.

My husband and I were already talking about going back next year!
