Catskill house description

Welcome to the lake! We recently built this custom cedar vacation home and designed it for complete vacations away from it all, but not away from modern conveniences. The home is isolated, with no neighbors in sight and hidden at the end of a long driveway, not visible from the road. With that in mind, we have tried to anticipate our guests needs to relax, enjoy and have fun. On the lakeside of the house is an over-sized great room with cathedral ceilings, a large stone wood-burning fireplace, a dining room with space for up to 10 adults, an island kitchen with professional stainless appliances, two sinks, including 3 full-size ovens, microwave and triple sliding glass doors leading out to a massive wrap-around deck overlooking the private lake and private dock. The deck provides a magnificent view of the lake, natural surroundings and wildlife. The deck is massive, measuring over 2,300 square feet and has hosted receptions, parties and weddings.

At the water's edge, there is a small bluff and our lakeside private dock comes with a row boat and peddle boats ready to fish, recreate and simply enjoy the private 100 acre lake. There is also an outdoor 6 person Hot Tub to relax at any time or after a long day! Sitting on a mountain top elevation of 2,200 feet above sea level, the fresh air is amazing! We provide exceptional satellite TV with all of the premium movie channels included, some 400 channels in all. There are five sets throughout the house, with a 52" flat screen in the great room, and a separate 32" flat screen in the basement den. We also have wireless internet.

We are conveniently located for year-round activities. We are near Hunter and Windham Ski Mountains (30 min), Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame (35 min), Oneonta colleges (25 min) and Albany city (40 min). There are lots of restaurants nearby and several hiking and mountain bike trails in the Catskill National Park as well as snowmobiling locations in the winter. There are golf courses, horseback riding farms, miniature golf, and a variety of museums and some natural wonders like Howe's Caverns to explore.

We designed the home to comfortably accommodate guests. The home has five bedrooms, and five bathrooms. There are three master bedrooms each with an attached full bathroom. The home has 4 queen beds, 8 twin beds and lots of space to relax. There is a full-size pool table, air hockey table and foosball table in the den, along with a wood-burning stove. Whether you choose to explore the lake, surrounding area or just stay home, the home includes everything you will need to have a wonderful time away from it all in complete privacy and luxury.

                            We were so happy to stay here with our extended family. The space was perfect, we were there the weekend of 3/15 and we had the best most amazing time at the house. We hope to visit again in the summer. Thanks again Helen for everything!!!

                            We rented the house with a group of 5 couples for an early Thanksgiving celebration. The contact for the property was very responsive when we initially emailed her with our questions about the property. However, as soon as we mailed out our checks for the payment and deposit, we stopped hearing from her. I had to email her three separate times just to get the lock box information and confirm that the rental was still on. After the stay, it took almost a month for her to respond to my inquiry about when we would be getting the security deposit back. If you are going to rent out a property, you should be prepared and willing to be responsive to emails- especially when they just sent you large sums of money. The house is very nice- a large house with lots of rooms and ample living space. The living space and kitchen were great for what we rented the house for. The three stoves made cooking a breeze. The fire pit in the backyard was nice for the fall evenings. There are a number of bathrooms, so that worked out well for the group of ten. However, keep in mind that while this house sleeps '14 people', many of the rooms have multiple twin beds or bunk beds. There were only two rooms that were suitable for a couple. Overall, I would recommend the house for a family or large group- maybe not for a couples weekend- so long as you are willing to stay on top of the follow up on correspondence surrounding the rental. It made me a little uncomfortable.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.
