About Angel Montreuil
Owners were born and raised in the same town minutes away from each other with an overlapping circle of friends and although didn't know one another there, by ways of traveling the NorthEast for their individual jobs, met at work, got to know one another and fell in love in NYC. They've been inseparable since day one, got married some years later and decided that NYC was to be their home and made Windham their home away from home.
Angel Montreuil purchased this House in 2013
Why Angel Montreuil chose Windham
This chalet spoke to us the first time we visited it. It was one of the first places we looked at and always came back to it no matter how many we saw. We were looking for something specifically in Windham because of its proximity to the Manhattan, its breathtaking beauty and culture, for it to be close to town as well as to the mountain and we wanted a large enough chalet to have our many friends and very large extended family come over anytime and not feel cramped for space. We searched high and low and did a full circle and ended up purchasing the property that we wanted, almost a year to the date, after we saw it for the first time! The bonus was that it has a phenomenal view in all seasons!! We hope that you appreciate the reasons why we chose this chalet over the many others in the area!
What makes this House unique
The uniqueness of this chalet is that it's an 'upside down' house meaning the living space is upstairs and the bedrooms are downstairs. So the beautiful views of nature and the mountain can be appreciated all the more because we spend most of our waking hours in the living room, the kitchen and the dining areas or deck so it's a perfect way to always have the outdoors with you even when you are indoors! We hope you love this as much as we do!

Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful stay! Everything was perfect! House is clean and beautiful!
Great property with everything you will want for a weekend getaway.
Went up with my fiancé and another couple. Property and house were great. Host has everything you need. We wanted to get out of town for the weekend and found this property. Everything was clean and comfortable. More than enough space for us and then some. House is loaded with entertainment. The hot tub and grill were a huge plus. Looking forward to going back at some point. Thank you again!
Sounds like you had a great time and enjoyed the amenities! Glad that you found it to be clean, comfortable and had everything you needed and more; we do like to make sure guests don't need for anything for an enjoyable and comfortable stay :) Please do come back soon with your friends and family, we would love to have you again!
Great Ski Chalet
We had a great time this rental. The host offered tons of information for our stay and was super convenient to Windham Mountain, Would definitely stay here again!
This house fit our 2 families comfortably and was very close to Windham Mountain. It was very clean and the owner offered so much information about the area. Would definitely stay again.
Weekend in the Country
Eight members of our family, (6 adults and 2 children), traveled to the Catskills for a memorial service. This house suited us perfectly. It had a large yard for the kids to play in, a fire pit for the evening, and a hot tub for the adults to relax in both during the morning and night. The stars were unbelievable come night time.
The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was clean, and exactly as depicted upon our arrival.
Angel, the owner has done a wonderful job of providing multiple copies of a binder filled with info on the house, activities and restaurants. She responded promptly to any inquiries from the moment I booked the house. The non GPS directions were great!
There are light colored carpets throughout the house, which explains the multiple requests to take shoes off upon entering. There are plenty of shoe trays at every entrance to accommodate this.
Just be aware that even though there is a $135 cleaning fee, the renter is responsible for bringing the trash and recyclables to the transfer station down the street. We felt that should have been part of the cleaning crew duties.
I highly recommend this property for a getaway to this beautiful area of NY. We hope to come back under more favorable circumstances to explore the area.
On a side note, if you like beer, definitely stop at Beer World in Catskill, and take a trip to West Kill Brewery (located 5 miles down a beautiful country road in the middle of no where).
Quiet and Private Getaway
Plenty of room and great amenities for catching up with a group of friends and family. The Chalet was secluded, comfortable, and a perfect setting for unwinding. Communication with Angel was seamless. We would definitely return for another trip.
The chalet is about a half hour off of the I-87 if you are driving. If you aren't, there's buses that come into town from Port Authority or other bus terminals of course and you can cab it 10 minutes to the chalet or take the Amtrak from Penn Station or other train terminals to the Hudson station which is in Catskill and cab it 35 minutes or book a car though Enterprise and they'd come meet you at the station. There is also local cab service if you want to head to town during your stay and you choose to come without a car. We are about 2.5 miles from the Main Street in town and about 4 to Windham Mountain.
We are located 2.5 MILES FROM TOWN for RESTAURANTS, BARS, ANTIQUE SHOPS, ART GALLERIES, SHOPS and all AMENITIES. 4 miles from WINDHAM MOUNTAIN and 13 miles from HUNTER MOUNTAIN as well as 6 miles to ZOOM FLUME WATER PARK.

There are small and large lakes nearby such as Colgate Lake or NorthSouth Lake for swimming and watersports or paddling, hiking trails such as Kaaterskill Falls or Pratt Rock - "New York's Mount Rushmore", bicycle trails and fishing at Catskill Park as well as hiking of course or Batavia Kill, Schoharie Creek, East Kill Creek, Ten Mile Creek, West Kill Creek are also great fishing spots. There's also great swimming holes and a water park nearby called Zoom Flume!
There are many Windham and Hunter Mountain events as well as almost weekly Town festivals to keep everyone entertained and a local winery just minutes from the chalet. There's also ZipLining for the daredevils in the group at Hunter! The town has an arcade and movie theater as well as many great restos, antique shops, golf courses and tennis courts nearby too as well as a Day Spa. There's also Windham Vineyard & Winery less than 10 minutes away from the chalet!
This is the perfect location for all indoor and outdoor activities that our unique area has to offer from art galleries and museums, antiquing, wine tastings and fine dining to horse back riding, fishing, camping, hiking, mountain bike park trails, zip lining and white water rafting to snow tubing, snowboarding, skiing and much much more! All this is accessible to you just a hop, skip and a jump away!
