Perfect Ski Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A group of about 10 of us had the pleasure of staying in Karen's house this past winter for a ski weekend. Communication was great, and the house was beautiful, truly a home away from home. We loved the game room downstairs and the fireplace in the living room kept the house warm and toasty. Kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, cutlery, appliances, etc. Would 100% recommend staying here for anybody looking to ski at Belleayre, or just looking for a quiet mountain cabin during the spring or fall. You'll enjoy it as much as we did. Thanks again Karen, sorry it took so long to post this review!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Karen's beautiful house for a Ski weekend. The house is spotless, very well taken care of. Had all the things we needed, including all the condiments while we cooked for few meals. We used the fireplace quiet a lot, and it was lovely. The house really feels like a home away from home! Would definitely recommend Karen's house for anyone who's interested. We had enough to rooms for 2 families of 7. The game room downstairs was extra bonus! I can imagine when the weather gets warm to be sitting out on the porch, or around the fire pit in the back yard. Communication with Karen was always prompt and received security deposit in less than 2 wks. Thank you Karen, will definitely return in the future!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for a portion of the ski season and loved it for so many reasons! The location is terrific - just a short ride to Belleayre Mountain with proximity to the town of Margaretville for groceries and easy access to plenty of other dining options in the area. My husband also hurt his hand at one point and headed into Margaretville to the hospital emergency room, where the folks there took very good care of him and sent him on his way :)

The house itself is warm, inviting, and super comfortable. We truly had everything that we needed and Karen has not missed a trick. From pots and pans to herbs and spices, I was able to cook lovely meals, soups, and desserts while we enjoyed our extended stay. We all had a blast in the game room and held awesome ping pong tournaments. We even had friends stay for a mini Super Bowl party.

Karen was the perfect host and very attentive to our needs and questions. The driveway was always plowed and there was plenty of wood for the fire. The property surrounding the house is lovely and peaceful, and the view from the expanse of windows is spectacular, especially early in the morning. Our experience could not have been better and the bar has been set pretty high as we consider going further north this season instead of returning to the area.

If we do return to the Catskills for any length if time, we hope to stay again. Thank you Karen - you are the best!

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days in this was absolutely marvelous to have this lovely home to retire to after the activities of our daughter's wedding. Wedding activities started Thurs and there was something each day. The location was perfect...a few minutes down Rte 36 to the wedding venue, a few minutes down Rte 30 to Margaretville (a lovely little town), and not far from skiing as well. (Hmmm...maybe a ski-cation this winter??) The home is immaculate, the kitchen has all a cook would desire, the beds and bedding are clean and comfortable. We had six adults here with no cramped feelings. I wish we would have had time to sit by the fire-pit, and the guys were hoping to have fun with the games downstairs. The owner is an absolute delight to deal with.

Margaretville cabin paradise

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous location. This cabin was the perfect getaway to relax, unwind and recharge with my wife. Every amenity needed, it was incredibly clean. Hiking, biking and how could we forget the kayaking, the most incredible views. Of course my wife's favorite part, not I finding any bugs in the cabin. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your incredible piece of heaven, can't wait to go back !

The perfect ski and mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend a few days. This house is ideal....just a few minutes drive to Margaretville and a little further to Belleayre mountain makes for a very convenient location. It has everything you could want in an upstate home: perfect combination of rustic with its stone fireplace and beautiful wood floors plus the modern conveniences of upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances, makes staying in for a home cooked meal the perfect end to a day on the slopes! Great layout with open floor plan gives everyone ample room. The finished basement has the additional plus of being a great game room pong, darts and more. This house is exceptionally clean, very welcoming and has fantastic views of the Catskills. Enjoyed my little getaway and the owner was a pleasure to deal with.
