About Abigail Podrecca

I am from the Boston area, studied for a time at Berkley School of Music, studied Acupuncture at the New England School of Acupuncture. I came to N.Y.C. to study acupuncture with a Chinese teacher. and spent nearly twenty-five years practicing Acupuncture . The Ranch was created for peace and relaxation and to be close to nature as possible. We have a swimming pond and a lovely stream near the many riding trails in the woods. The horses are big pets and have free access to most of the property. The Feng shui of this land is so healing that the horses and I are walking around in a meditation state most of the time! And in the winter the Skiing is close by and great!. For fifteen years I taught to Hunter Mountain and bought my house in 2005, convinced that I needed to be as close to the mountains as possible, after living here for the past ten years I am sure that I made the right choice.

Abigail Podrecca purchased this house in 2005

Why Abigail Podrecca chose Catskills

Uniquely private with mountain views surrounding the home on a park like setting with horses and mountains just about everywhere you look! The contemporary home a large deck surounding it with chairs for just watching the clouds go by, or go skiing to nearby Hunter Mountain or Windham Mountain. There are two lakes nearby, Nor and South lake for swimming or kayacking and trails for hiking. Breathe in fresh mountain air, as the trees outnumber the people here.

What makes this house unique

Health treatments available of massage, acupuncture, horse back riding available, minutes to Hunter Mountain Village, or Windham, where there are cinemas, shops, restaurants available. Swimming lake and fishing streams within minutes of our ranch. The uniqueness of our ranch is its privacy and mountain vistas. We are off the beaten path yet close to everything necessary for a great mountain vacation, and in the winter season the house is available from Dec 15th or Dec 30th till April 15th or 30th for the ski season. As soon as I sat in the living room and looked out at the notch in the mountains facing the front door, I was convinced this was the healthiest, most healing spot in the Catskills, yet within minutes of civilization! New York city is only two and a half hours away, so pack your skis and bags and come to stay at our ranch. Say hi to my white stallion, Sundance, uncle Scottie, the quarter horse, and Sundance's son Simon Says. They are available for trail rides on the property.

Fantastic place to explore the Catskills

  • 5 of 5

Really spacious, well equipped and helpful owner made this stay a special time for me and my family. Close to a wondrous swimming lake, we climbed rocks, rode horses and visited Woodstock. We were all happy here. Wish we could have stayed longer.

It was great, thank you Abigail!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the weekend at this beautiful house. We loved everything , large living room with a fireplace and fantastic views out of the panoramic windows. The only drawback I can think of that it needs another outdoor grill , other than that it is awesome.

Thank you again !

Great location for weekend ski lodging.

  • 4 of 5

The location worked out very well for my friends and I who wanted to do a weekend getaway ski trip. Nice and removed spot in the woods but with an open view overlooking the mountains. All the bedrooms were just what we needed. The oven did not fully work but we did not need it more than once. Overall, very pleasurable experience.

Owner's Response: Hi, There is a brand new microwave oven in the kitchen, and the oven takes a little longer than usual to go on but it does work. All the top burners work instantly. The tenants were advised of this.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! Amazing view of the mountain. It fit our group of 10 comfortably. About a 5 minute drive from Hunter mountain. The upstairs has a wonderful open layout with high ceilings, very spacious. Abby was very helpful and accommodating with any questions we had about the house during the busy holiday weekend - we went up to celebrate New Years Eve. I would absolutely go back, looking forward to it for next year. Had a fantastic experience!! Highly recommend. 10/10 for sure.
