Property description

Welcome to Morning Star Vacation Home in Windham NY.

We are Nestled in the heart of the Northern Catskill Mountains, this beautiful chalet home will enchant you with its peaceful charm.
It is perfect for a weekend getaway with kids, a special engagement, a family reunion, a skiing adventure, a Golf outing with friends and family or a relaxing retreat.
Morning Star is a hidden getaway just two miles from the Windham Mountain family ski area and the spectacular Windham Country Club’s championship 18-hole golf course. From winter to summer, fall to spring, Windham awaits you with year-round activities including: hiking, skiing, golfing, biking, snowmobiling and horseback riding.
Scenic views stretch in every direction from the house’s back porch. Cook up some cheeseburgers on the grill! During hunting season, sportsmen can find deer, wild turkeys and other game abound. The endearing town of Windham is a haven for fine dining, lively bars, community festivals, church socials, movie theatres, and fine art galleries. For world class skiing, test your skills at the more challenging Hunter Mountain or enjoy the family-orientated slopes of Windham Mountain. Both are just mere miles away.
Morning Star is the perfect retreat after a grueling day on the slopes, an early morning hike at Kaaterskill Falls or a day exploring the jewels of Windham. Guests love to get cozy with a book by the house’s blazing fireplace. Enjoy the game room’s ping pong table, foosball table, dart board and table games (including a large collection of Legos and Barbie playsets for the kids).
The living room’s comfy overstuffed couches and rustic decorations create the perfect mountain retreat atmosphere. The kitchen is outfitted with all the necessities and more. Central air-conditioning keeps the house cool through summer months.
The home includes three separate bedrooms and a large loft with four couches that convert into beds. Young and old especially enjoy the loft as a cozy hideaway – some of our guests refer to it as “the man cave.” It is tastefully decorated with vintage skis and beautiful local photography. Morning Star comfortably accommodates 10 to 14 guests. There is plenty of parking along the gravel driveway.
Every need is provided for. A professional cleaning staff will prepare the house for your arrival, including setting the thermostat so a comfortable atmosphere is ready for you. The house is meticulously outfitted with every convenience: from a stock of tea and coffee, plenty of fresh towels, firewood, and more.
During your stay, we recommend a morning trip to the Windham Country Store in town; enjoy freshly made donuts that are delicious enough to write home about. Be sure to include the Windham walking path for a relaxing afternoon stroll. During the winter months, be sure to go tubing at Windham’s Mountain’s icy slopes for wind-whipping fun. And after a long day enjoying all that the Catskill Mountains have to offer, Morning Star awaits you – enjoy a warm bath, some hot chocolate, and maybe a ping-pong tournament with friends before slipping into bed for the next day’s adventures.

Your perfect vacation home is waiting for you.

Windham Country Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in the scenic Northern Catskills of New York State. Designed in 1928 by Len Raynor from famed Cooperstown, the course was remodeled in 1964. Golf Digest rates Windham C.C. 3 1/2 stars, and a 'must' play. The course is scenic and challenging. The blue tees rate a modest 70.4 with a slope of 120. At 6005 yards, the course plays tougher than expected. Women, seniors, and juniors love the forward tees at 4,651 yards—the rating is 69.2 with a slope of 112. Conditions are excellent, and the professional staff under their PGA pro, Brian Lowe, is friendly and knowledgeable.
