Property description

$80 cleaning fee, $250 refundable damage deposit; all taxes included

Winter 2015/2016 rates are $9,500 plus utilities (water is included but gas/propane/electric is billed separately), $500 refundable damage deposit. 12/4/2015-4/3/2016. One well-behaved dog is allowed during the winter season.

Charming and cozy 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house with gorgeous views of Windham Mountain and the best of both worlds--a 1.5 mile drive to the mountain (10 miles to Hunter) and less than a minute drive to town (10-15 min walk). Situated on a little less than 2 acres of land on Route 23, but set back from the road. Each bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom; living space is presented as an open layout for easier dining and entertaining. We just put in a brand-new kitchen, floors/carpeting, new living room furniture, and new mattresses/linens (January '14)! There's also a newly constructed, sturdy and spacious pine treated deck in front of the house, where you can gaze at the mountain while enjoying a morning cup o' joe or end-of-the-day cocktail. One of the bedrooms is equipped with a new queen bed and the other has one twin and a set of bunk beds. Bedrooms each have tons of closet space, with 2 closets each. Living space is super cozy with a toasty gas firestove and each room has electric baseboard heaters.

You'll also have access to the basement where you can store your bikes, skis, boots, and other wet items and where you can use the washer/dryer. Basement is heated and has a separate entrance, but is conveniently located below the unit. You can drop off your equipment on the way into the chalet, where your slippers and gas fireplace await! (Come on, can't you just picture it?)

The rental is located about 40 feet from the main house on shared property. You'll have plenty of privacy, and also the convenience of having the owners nearby (most weekends in the winter) if you need anything. (If we're not there, we're a phone call away and will gladly send our caretaker over to help out if needed). We affectionately refer to the house as the 'rondelet chalet' because, while the main house was built in the early 1920s, the rental was built in the late 60s and it's a funky round-shaped house that was evidently de rigeur at the time. Actually it's more like a dodecahedron! It originally functioned as the 'pool house' adjacent to the pool (which we just filled in this past spring). The rondelet has a certain charm in regard to its shape and layout...we think you'll get a kick out of it, while also finding it as cheery and cozy as can be. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Oh, for you good Catholics out there....we're right next door to a Catholic church!

This area is beautiful's not just for skiing! There are many recreational activities to take advantage of during every season--or just get away from it all and pull up a comfy seat on the deck, pour yourself a beverage, soak in the view, and don't move your entire stay. We won't judge!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Liz, Mark, our 6 yr old son Austin, and our new baby daughter Holland, live in NJ full-time and have recently fulfilled a dream of purchasing property in the Catskills. We're still getting to know the area but have fallen in love with Windham and the surrounding towns and can't yet decide on our favorite season here. It's an awesome setting year-round with so much to do.

Why the Owner Chose Windham:
We have a gorgeous mountain view and have the best of both worlds. We're a 1 minute drive to town (10-15 min. walk) and a 5 minute drive to the mountain. The main house is on the property, so if you need anything we're not far away.
