Overview

Catskills House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, 18 Beds, Sleeps 25

The Hudson Hideaway is an inviting 6 Bedroom home with its own private beach in a quiet residential neighborhood. Sun yourself on our private dock or take a dip in the Hudson River to cool off. Relax at night on the back patio overlooking the river while a cozy fire blazes in the new outdoor brick fireplace and watch the millions of stars light up the night.. Cook outside on the large Weber Grill and Camp Chef Flat top grill or use the indoor kitchen with newly installed GE double oven and stove top. The game room offers darts, dual basketball challenge, air hockey, ping pong, pool table, poker table, foosball and even a karaoke stage! Outdoors we have volleyball, a children's play structure, kayaking, huge dock. Enjoy DIREC-TV on several 42 - 56' LCD televisions with surround sound for a movie night,. This is a great home for a family reunion, a corporate retreat,or a relaxing get-a-way with friends. (ABSOLUTEY NO after prom parties will be considered, even with adult supervision). We have many amenities to make this the vacation of a lifetime, however this is not the place to consider if you are looking to have wild weekend getaways as this will not be tolerated by the Town nor the homeowners.

This is a smoke free and pet free home.

There are two Wilderness Pungo 120 Kayaks at the home for your use.

Our home is located a short distance from many ski resorts, hiking trails and golf courses as well as many local farms and orchards where you can pick your own produce or take a hay ride. If its shopping malls you want, the Albany Crossgates Mall is just a 25 minute drive away. Want to visit the great WOODSTOCK area for the day, take a scenic 45 minute drive.

About Jody Windland

I am 55 yrs old, married for over 25 years and have three beautiful daughters. I grew up in Brooklyn NY, went to John Dewey High School and Florida Institute of Technology for training in aviation and air commerce. I am CEO of United Software Developers and my wife works with SNAP running a program that finds volunteers to help and spend time with Senior Citizens.

People ask why do I rent the house out. With the kids grown, going to college, we just do not use the home as much anymore. I now love to have other families enjoy our home as much as we do. It also helps with the 2 current college tuitions......

Jody Windland purchased this house in 2002

Why Jody Windland chose Catskills

I have a lot of family that lives in the Tri-State area and with homes right on top of each other, I wanted a home where our very large extended family can spend many family gatherings together with room to spare. I was very fortunate to find this perfect house that is only 2 hours away from NYC. The many years of family get togethers and watching my nieces, nephews, cousins grow so close to each other is just priceless !!

What makes this house unique

I immediately fell in love with this home when I saw the 3.5 acres of flat open land was in the backyard with a private sandy beach on the Hudson River where you can swim in fresh water. It did not take long before the fire pits were built for the countless outdoor barn fires, smores and spooky stories. With so much open space there was no reason NOT to add the batting cage, volleyball, play ground, game room, karaoke stage, surround sound systems. To be able to hang out with my adult friends and family and all the kids NOT wanting to leave because they are bored has made everything we did so worth it.

I just love it when I hear the kids begging their parents to stay longer.

SO MUCH FUN!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so impressive, so many things to do and plenty of room for the 20 people we had. Everyone found a comfortable place to sleep, and there were enough activities in the home to keep everyone occupied! The game room was a big hit, we stayed up until the early morning hours singing karaoke and playing pool. The river was fantastic, I only wish the weather had cooperated with us, but we were able to swim the first night we got there! We had a bunch of fun in the floats and jumping off the dock. A couple of friends also ventured in the kayaks, which was an added fun activity. We made smores, sat by the fire and laughed a lot! Glad we were able to make memories with all of our friends in this house, if we ever get the chance to do it again I would come back in a heartbeat!! There are still so many outside things we wanted to do, hopefully next time we get a bright sunny day so we can enjoy the river again. Thanks so much to Jody who was incredibly helpful and flexible through the whole process. He always maintained that I could ask as many questions as possible and made me feel so comfortable, since I have never rented a home through HomeAway before. Great spot to make a bunch of memories! Highly highly recommend it!!!

Perfect family fun wedding stay weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect addition to our upstate dream wedding weekend! Jody was very accommodating, doing a walk through with us upon arrival and allowing us a slightly extended stay to sleep in and complete our family brunch before traveling home. Every family member that was a guest here couldn't have been happier with the decision to stay here! From the many large bedrooms that comfortably fit our two families, to the large dining table and open family friendly kitchen, it was perfect! Add on the fun karaoke/ game room and the out door water trampoline, plus the fire pits and hudson river right in the backyard, there was something here for everyone! Thank you for making our wedding weekend complete!

Awesome, amazing, beautiful, accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married at the Owl Hoot Barn and decided to rent the Hudson Hideaway for a place for our families to come together. I can not say enough good things about this location. The kids and adults had so much fun in the batting cage, lounging by the Hudson, singing karaoke and resting by the many fire pits. Jody was extremely accommodating and allowed for us to make some last minute changes. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and everything was extremely clean and accessible. Thank you again Jody for making our wedding weekend an amazing one.

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to the owners of this property. One description doesn't really do it justice. Hanging out on the dock by the river, back yard activities, the batting cages, relaxing / grilling on the back patio with all of the Adirondack chairs and tables. Karayoke room for evening activities and games for all. Firepit at night. Ammenities were obviously great, but the house itself was also very welcoming. All in all, an extremely pleasant stay and something different for people in Fairfield County, NYC, and Long Island. Thanks Jody.

Map

Car: recommended

Our house is on a quiet street right on the Hudson River. Albany is a 25 minute drive with huge shopping malls,

dining, movie theatres and more. Like Skiing? We are a 35 minute drive to Hunter Mountain and other ski slopes

and this is the perfect house for large ski groups. Hudson is a 20 minute drive with all the quaint shops and great restaurants. Just minutes from the house is plenty of shopping, drive-in theatre, Pizza, Chinese, Ice-cream, seafood and more.
