Overview

Catskills Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 8

Surrounded by a national preserve, this 3 bedroom/3 bathroom villa has all of the modern luxuries for a perfect vacation including luxury linens and bedding, beautiful furnishings, wood burning stove for cold winter nights, fully stocked kitchen, formal dining room, sattelite tv and internet. Experience nature at its best with beautiful gardens in the summer time and snowy landscapes in the winter with local wildlife stopping by for daily visits. Autumn foliage is spectacular and watching the sunset from the back deck is something special. Only 90 minutes from NYC by car or train (Metro North to Grand Central) and about 30 miles to West Point and New Paltz, other attractions are our world renowned wineries, skiing, snow tubing, antiquing and ice cave exploration in the Shawngunk Ridge. Our town is surrounded by the Wallkill River great for fishing and white water rafting. Your rental includes a meet and greet by our property manager as well as 24 hour concierge services.

Mount Peter Skiing: Mount Peter is located in Southern New York in the heart of the Hudson Valley, just a short drive away. We are known for many things, like our famous Free Beginner Ski and Snowboard School, our great snowmaking and expert grooming, an awesome terrain park, our top-notch racing and development programs, and our family atmosphere.

Did you know that Mount Peter was started in 1936 by Macy’s Department Store to show off and sell their ski fashion? The mountain that started so many years ago as a savvy marketing tool has grown to be a cherished place for people to fall in love with winter. Mount Peter - known as “The Friendly One” – is the oldest operating ski area in New York State, and one of the few remaining family operated ski areas in the country.

Snow Tubing: December 26, 2010 —March 02, 2011

The Orange County Snow Tubing & Winter Sports Park opens for the season on December 26. The park is situated in the Thomas Bull Memorial Park, Route 416, Montgomery.

The 800 foot snow tubing hill features two cable lifts, ten groomed lanes and specially designed tubes built for a speedy, thrilling ride.

The park also features an ice skating rink, sledding hill and cross-country ski trails. People must provide their own equipment for these free activities.

The Graham M. Skea Lodge, located on top of the tubing hill, offers beautiful views of the Hudson Valley and features a concession/restaurant and large stone fireplace.

Birthday party packages and youth group bookings are available for snow tubing.

Weather conditions may affect the opening date. For more information, please contact the Orange County Department of Parks.

Ice Caves: One of the most exciting and accessible hiking destinations in New York are the Ice Caves in Sam’s Point Preserve, which are, thankfully, meticulously guarded by the Nature Conservancy. Containing ice caves in the depths of its crevasses, this is the greatest open fault in the United States (known geologically as the Ellenville Fault.) The strange environment consisting of globally-rare, ridge-top dwarf pines, huckleberry and blueberry fields, beautiful flowers, deep crevasses and phenomenal views seems to transport the hiker to places more arid than lush New York… perhaps the craggy, dry southwest. The 5,400 acre preserve is located atop the world-class rock climbing Shawangunk (the “Gunks”) range, which is close to the wonderful college town of New Paltz, where you can find lots of good restaurants, shopping and lodging. The area was formed on the ocean floor about a half-billion years ago when a layer of shale formed and was pushed up into the air over time.

Great stay in Hudson Valley

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mountain Villa. The house was clean and the location was very quiet. Rick was very accommodating to a special request. We look forward to staying there again!

Felt just like home

  • 5 of 5

From the first night we hit the comfortable beds and felt like we were home. It was the perfect size for our group needs, had all the amenities provided and the owner was always available in a flash! We needed a blender for a recipe and that same day when it was discovered to be missing, the owner purchased a brand new appliance and brought it straight over. It is definitely a sanctuary in the great outdoors surrounded by wildlife. As any family when there are kids you are always keeping them fed and the kitchen was perfect for cooking and even entertaining. We had a lot of distance to travel when we went out for the day because of where our friends were located or who we had to see but it was great knowing we could "come home" and relax.

Awesome comfortable stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the wonderful accommodations!! We enjoyed our stay so much. This place is amazingly peaceful and was very clean. It was also nice to have a kitchen, we definitely took advantage of that amenity! We did a lot of visiting between Brooklyn, NYC, Tuxedo, Patterson, and Wallkill. After all the touring it was a very comfortable wonderful place to come back to.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Rick & Heidi, Thank you so much for the use of your home. We spent 7 nights there and there were 8 of us. It was clean and had a well stocked kitchen with plenty of towels for the bathrooms. It is a nice quiet location with a big yard so on our last day we set up a net and played badmitton and volleyball. We saw deer in the backyard. We were there to visit the Watchtower facilities in Patterson and Tuxedo and Walkill. The location was great! We even went into the city twice! We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you for being so helpful and accommodating!!

Mount Peter
Car: recommended

In the midst of nature with over 30 acres of national wildlife preserve surrounding the villa yet just 90 minutes from NYC. World renowned antique shops and exquisite wineries in the surrounding areas within minutes of the villa. Great hiking, nature trails and bike trails right outside the front door. A short 5 minute stroll will take you to a nearby stream that runs in from the Wallkill river, perfect for exploring or fishing. 30 mile drive to West Point in the south and New Paltz in the north, the villa is in the center of it all, close to Mt Peter's ski mountain and snow tubing and a short drive to the outlet shopping mall. Beautiful walk-thru gardens in the summer and spectacular autumn foliage and snowfalls in the winter.

Mount Peter is just a short 15 minute ride away for skiing as well as Montgomery State Park just 5 minutes down the road for all day snow tubing. We are 20 minutes from West Point and New Paltz and just 90 minutes or less to NYC either by car or train.

Golf: Winding Hills Golf Club is a public and beautiful golf course nearby.

Ski: Mount Peter for skiing and Montgomery State Park for all day snow tubing. Shawngunk Mountain Range for ice caves, hiking and more ski and snow actvities.
