About Esther Deino

We were a NY metro area family of four for 8 years, lived in Ridgewood, NJ . Recently transferred to Marietta, GA. Now work at BLACKROCK as a Director/Emerging Markets. We love the outdoors, skiing, swimming, hiking, fine & casual dining restaurants and strolling Main St. Windham were only a few reasons we've chosen The Catskill Area.

Esther Deino purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Esther Deino chose Maplecrest

We purchased this house in 2009 to have a closeby getaway where our children could learn to ski as well as enjoy beautiful summers. Once here, all you need to do is walk out the door and you are surrounded by nature year-round. Also, minutes from fine dining and skiing in beautiful Windham.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Unlike many properties in the area, this house is tastefully updated with comfortable furniture, premium mattresses in main bedrooms / guesthouse and cable TV in both the guesthouse and main house with complimentary wifi in the main house . While secluded and surrounded by nature, also extremely close to Windham and all it offers!

Cozy house close to mountain!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a beautiful weekend in this rustic home! Very cute and cozy house and equipped with everything you need. House was very clean and organized and beds were comfortable. Very close to the mountain, about a 10 minute drive. Came here with a group of friends and we had a blast! Would definitely come back as well as recommend this place to friends.

Perfect ski house

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults, meeting more family in another house about 10 minutes away. All small children were at that other big house, and we certainly enjoyed skiing at Windham Mountain and dining with them over there, BUT it was wonderful to return to the peace and quiet of this house, sleep late, breakfast whenever ready. It is close to the ski mountain, comfortable, spacious, immaculate, welcoming, perfect for us. We would certainly recommend it and, if the occasion arises, return to it.

Great place with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Property is really nice! We rented both houses and it ended up being just the right amount of room. The pond is really nice and full of frogs.

Great location close to blackdome/blackhead mountain trails. This was a great hike for us.

Wonderful Home for all Seasons

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family getaway! We stayed with 6 adults and our children, and there were plenty of beds and space for everyone in the main house. The common areas (Living room, dining room and kitchen) were spacious enough for my whole family to spend time together.

The pond was fantastic as the children all enjoyed skipping small stones and looking at the fish. We were 20 minutes from Zoom Flume and mini golf, which was perfect for us.

The house has so much charm and was so warm and welcoming, we can't wait to return in the winter!!

I was apprehensive at first because this was the first house I was booking for 16 people but overall this house was PERFECT! Accommodating for everyone and everything we needed, the home owner provided. Two bedrooms with a bathoom and a master bedroom with a master bathroom all upstairs. Four people can sleep downstairs in the living room. The bar was fun to hang around for food and chatting. Windham is only 5 minutes away and Hunter is about 20 minutes away for a great adventurous day. The house is spacious and great for couples and single friends. Kids will love it. The guest house is a spacious two floor studio that is newly built. It began to snow and the roads were very scary, just be cautious but i recommend this house for everyone!!! Summer, spring, fall and winter it can be used for everything. Thank you again Deino's for giving me this chance to go away and relax.

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented the main house for a weekend of skiing with several friends at Hunter and Windam mountains. This house is the perfect location for going to either mountain, and also extremely close to Main Street Windam where there are tons of places to eat. The house itself is beautifully maintained and stocked with all the essentials for a comfortable stay. Lastly, Esther (the homeowner) was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process.
