Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! We go to Octoberfest every year and been to many rentals and had all kinds of experiences. This house was beautifully decorated, quality and style. Views are breathtaking! Plenty of space. Just a little short on dishes in the kitchen, but I guess its always good to have with you some paper plates, cups and utensils if you have a larger group :)

Jacuzzi every night was awesome!

Great weekend! Amazing views, beautiful house, nice weather! We will be back for sure!

the exterior and exterior needs to be updated. the house was not clean and there was dried urine in the foyer floor. the issues we had, the propane tank was empty, the coffee maker wasn't working. the water was unable to drink, it smelled like rotten eggs. the caretaker was not helping with any of our issues.

Owner's Response: The coffee maker did break and we immediately went out to buy a new one as soon as he told us. The area is fully landscaped and we have a state of the art water filter. He is just finding reasons to complain, when he asked for money back. When I did not grant it, he wrote this review. For other homeowners, I recommend being very wary before renting to this person.

great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The views and the house were amazing. Also the creek about 2 miles from the house was great for fishing.

Beautiful Custom House in the Woodland

  • 5 of 5

The house is a custom made Tudor style home built on a mountain setting. I love the fancy exposed woodwork interior, medieval heraldry, and stone style flooring. Even the bathroom sinks have a medieval style. The house and the property was perfect for a large family with two dogs. Justin was very responsive and wonderful to deal with, and George the caretaker, along with his son, were both friendly and responsive to your needs. They really made you feel at home. The property is secluded but close enough to the nearest town for all your basic grocery needs. Plenty of hiking trails along the Catskills and coming back and relaxing in the hot tub was perfect. The nights were awesome when the stars were out, star gazing from the rear wrap-around deck was a memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect Getaway Chateau

  • 5 of 5

I recently hosted a men's retreat at this chateau, and the guys were awestruck as soon as we turned into the driveway. There's a ton of land surrounding the house and a beautiful view that never got old during our 2 night stay. Once in the house, there's a medieval vibe that lends a sense of adventure to the stately furnishings. The knight in full armor in the living room is a great touch.

We had a total of ten people and there were plenty of beds. Lots of towels, sheets, and pillows. I stayed in the king size bed in a quiet downstairs bedroom and slept very well. Hot tub functioned perfectly. The porch has both gas and charcoal grills, and there's a coffee maker, lots of appliances, and unexpected freebies - spices, condiments, firewood for the fire pit. Justin was always accessible by email and very helpful. No one bothered us during our stay, and the neighbors are far away. This house made the weekend even better than it already was.

Ski vacation during Christmas with Friend's Families

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 families with kids, had a 5 day vacation during Christmas time at Chateau House and skied nearby at Windham mountain. The house has large living areas, ample bedding and sheets, furniture, and cooking stuff. The place is clean and well-maintained, except small issues with lighting fixture. The owner and manager are quite responsive and friendly in helping us trouble-shoot hot-spot connections. The Windham ski resort is close by and only 10 min away. It's early to have decent snow around Christmas time but we had fun at the house and ski slope.
