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!

Amazing Location for a Week Away
The house is located on a large piece of property, secluded but still close to town. The deck provides beautiful views of the mountain (we were there in the Fall when the leaves were changing) and there’s lots of room both inside and out.
Inside: more than enough room for 8 people, fireplace in the living room that was a great place to relax in the evening or a lazy Sunday morning. I’m sure it’s perfect after a long day on the slopes too!
The kitchen had everything we needed to cook large meals, we also took advantage of the grills and eating outside a few evenings.
Outside: fire pit, hot tub, and tons of room for the kids to run and play. And the views – perfect when enjoying breakfast on the deck in the morning!
Close enough to downtown for happy hour, shopping, an evening out, etc. Perfect for a group week away – can’t wait to come back again!
Best Spot For a Weekend to Unwind from the World
Loved this place. Very cozy house, has room for a lot of people to sleep and hangout comfortably. It's really the best of both worlds -
If you want to stay indoors, it has a nice fireplace, TV's all around, great wifi, apple tv so you can stream Netflix, etc. It's stacked with board games if you want to unwind from electronics. Everything in the house is precisely detailed to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
If you're outdoorsy - they have a big backyard, an amazing fire-pit, and the greatest Jacuzzi I've ever been to. Doesn't matter how cold it is, you get in there and the feeling is indescribable. Don't consider an upstate trip location if it doesn't have an outdoor jacuzzi - it really makes all the difference.
The owners are unbelievable. They respond quickly to all text messages. I was extremely annoying and was messaging them quite often, yet they always would answer kindly and were very helpful!
My time there was exactly what I needed to just relax. A true vacation.
Relaxing and isolated mountain getaway..
A small group of my close friends and I head upstate every year to get away from the city, get fresh air, cook good food, and enjoy nature. We were very lucky to find the Chalet - great location in Windham - with some great sites like the Arbetarium for a relaxing and very Instagrammable hike and Deer Inn nearby for a warm cocktail by the fire. The fall is a great time to go since it's not yet too cold and it's pretty quiet before ski season. Everything in the house was well organized and thought out, making our stay very convenient and easy. The N64 was a great touch and nice throwback. :)
Loved the house
Awesome experience, great owners.
Great stay and well planned
We had a great stay here. We were 4 couples coming over for the weekend. Instructions for check in were timely. We had initially reserved in June but had to reschedule and Angel was very accommodating with the change of plan. Great hiking spots close to the chalet. We did hikes both saturday and sunday.
The kitchen was well stocked with spices oil etc and all the equipment available to use was perfect. All in all great stay!
A beautiful, amenity filled home with an amazing view!
I stayed at the chalet recently and was blown away by the hospitality and accommodation of the owners...and not to mention the beauty of the home and view! A picturesque view of Windham Mountain ski resort and the right mix of nature and closeness to town. I didn't even need to bring anything besides food as the home was fully stocked with everything needed to make my stay comfortable and convenient. I highly recommend the chalet!
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. Both Windham and Hunter Mountains have a full bursting calendar of events for both the summer and winter months! 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!
