About Penny Besculides

We are retired educators who love skiing , golfing and the greater out doors.

Penny Besculides purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Penny Besculides chose Catskills

We have been coming to the Catskills since the 1950's. We love the fresh air, mountain amenities and quality of life this area has to offer .After years of renting our family purchased the main house in 1968. Over the past four decades our family came for winter skiing and summer recreation. In 2011 we decided to add this guest house so others may partake in building their own family memories.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We especially love sitting on our deck with our early morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine and watching natural beauty at its best! Whether it's the twice daily family of deer eating the apples from our tree next to the pond, the flock of turkeys crossing our stream or the spectacular sunset over Windham Mountain, we are in awe of the beauty surrounding us.

Inviting and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful house on an incredible piece of property. The house is thoughtfully appointed with everything to make your stay completely comfortable. We enjoyed our time there so much we asked to extend our stay by a day and luckily they were able to accommodate us.

We had a small problem with the smoke alarm beeping. One phone call and it was immediately fixed. Which was great.

We filled up each of the beds and everyone agreed they were very comfortable.

I would definitely go back and highly recommend this property.

Bamboozled!

  • 1 of 5

The description on VRBO is misleading, this rental home is not a separate unit, it is part of the owner's lived in residence. There is no privacy. Conversations are not private. Driveway is not private, it is shared. Limited tv on very small screen, intermittent internet, t stats were changed. Intrusion of owner's company onto rental premises. This was not the relaxing, quiet, private vacation we had hoped for. Private conversations were brought up the next day by owners??? We were intruded upon from day one. It was very uncomfortable and weird. We stayed only 9 days of a 30 day rental because we felt that uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: These people were upset that we have a NO SMOKING and NO ANIMALS policy and hence this review. Our house is a separate guest house. We have received many (21) 5 star reviews proclaiming the beauty & serenity of our home & property as well as how fully equipped it is. We find your statements baffling, unjustified and find your motivation questionable. The number of our repeat guests attests to the validity of our position

EVEN BETTER THAN PICTURES

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. We were a group of 6 and spent 2 nights. We really enjoyed everything about our stay. The house was clean, beautiful and warm. Beds were very comfortable and we weren't disturbed by any noise. There is a nice view of the mountain. It was the best place to relax. The house was fully stocked with everything from towels, dishes, pans to a gas barbecue grill, laundry facilities, etc.. The location was also close to the town and the mountain. I highly recommend this wonderful place.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family, husband, wife and 2 grown childeren stayed here for a birthday ski week-end. We were very pleased with the house, large, clean and it was 5 minutes to ski Windam. We cooked most of our meals here and had everything we needed. There's a deck off the back which overlooks a nice yard with a view of the ski sloops in the background. It was a great fit for our family with room to spare.
