Great place for a weekend stay to hit the slopes at Windham or Hunter

  • 4 of 5

Spent a Sat night here with very short notice. Owner made it work and considering a big snow storm, really appreciated the effort. Overall, clean place and does the job. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was nice for family of four board games. Would have liked to see some more amenities in house like a toaster oven and some better pans / utensils / paper towels / towels and toilet paper. I would definitely recommend if you need a clean dependable place for the night. My family and I enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking with me! I'm happy that you have enjoyed your stay and appreciate your last minute booking. We provide basics to start guests with and recommend bringing favorite pots or pans. We are fortunate in our location that the grocery/supermarket is just a few minutes walk from the cottage in case guests need any additional supplies. We do not have toaster oven due to a high fire hazard issues and insurance. Although we keep it simple we provide very reasonable rates and hope guests appreciate our home vs. motel and enjoy the unique experience of being a part of local community. Thank you very much for taking great care of the place!

Very clean, well-maintained and welcoming!!!

  • 5 of 5

Ella was fantastically accommodating, had great communication with us, and was very kind/informative about anything we had questions about. Her place was very cozy!!! We enjoyed the area, as it was close to a lot of places we were interested in checking out - Kaaterskill Falls, Windham Mountain, a number of stables, and some great places to eat. We recommend the Brie & Bordeaux for a nicer dinner! Loved the sweetness of the little living room with the loving loveseat - adorable. Great money-wise choice. Perfect for one or two couples who want the privacy of their own place but don't want to pay for expensive lodging! Thanks Ella!!

A great Labor Day Holliday!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in Ella's cottage. There was larger group this time, so we had both bedrooms. First time I was only there with a friend and had one bedroom. Both stays were great. I've also stayed at her Bungalow before that she rents next door. The cottage was very nice and clean. I was at cottage with five of my friends.There was enough space for all of us with two bedrooms. I really enjoyed my stay st Ella's place. Ella was very helpful this time and last time with answering my questions. She told me about some great hiking places and restaurants. I can't wait to stay at one of Ella's places again.

One of my favorite places to stay

  • 5 of 5

I do a lot of travel, especially to the Catskills, and I do not stay anywhere else. I have spent Christmas week in this home and it's one of the best memories I have. The owner is pleasant and diligent with regards to cleanliness and hospitality. Her rental homes reflect this.

Whether it's ski season or hiking season, you won't find a better location or a comfier, cozier home. It is central to several well-known ski areas, and the hiking trails in the Catskills are unmatched on the east coast (in my opinion). The trails are the main reason I go so often there--and I've only stayed at this owner's homes.

Her use of knick knacks, her seasonally appropriate bedding, smokers, grills, lights--all make for a true home away from home, and I would bet a "better than" home away from home for some.

I cannot recommend any better lodging than this.
