This is a beautiful, private and spacious home in Cairo that we call Casa Montaña which translates to Mountain House. The house is surrounded by gorgeous mountain views and is set on 2 acres on a long private road. There is a large multi level sun deck in the back of the house, with an outdoor shower, and a screened in furnished gazebo. The front has a long balcony with spectacular mountain views. There are plenty of quiet spaces and nooks where you can relax and read a good book or take a little nap.
Casa Montaña was built to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while being indoors all year long but especially during the winter months. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee while birdwatching cardinals, hummingbirds, blue jays and other gorgeous birds all while inside the popular four seasons room. At night, you can star gaze from inside or out while you enjoy a glass of wine or a hot cocoa by a roaring fire.
Cooks will enjoy cooking in our fully equipped kitchen that includes a great cookbook collection and an open dining area over looking the back decks. The kitchen has a 12 foot counter where you can watch the cook prepare dinner or cook together.

Why the Owner Chose Catskill: The Catskill region provided us with the peace and tranquility we were searching for. The house speaks for itself! The location is close enough for a short weekend stay yet far enough to come and stay for a week and feel like you are miles and miles away on vacation.
We are often told our home is very special and we like to think so as well. Come and see for yourself!
