About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Mountain View

Charming and cozy 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house with gorgeous views of Windham Mountain and the best of both worlds--a 1.5 mile drive to the mountain (10 miles to Hunter) and less than a minute drive to town (10-15 min walk). Situated on a little less than 2 acres of land on Route 23, but set back from the road. Each bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom; living space is presented as an open layout for easier dining and entertaining. Features newly renovated kitchen, floors, and deck, where you can gaze at the mountain while enjoying a morning cup o' joe or end-of-the-day cocktail. One of the bedrooms is equipped with a new queen bed and the other has one twin and a set of bunk beds. Bedrooms each have tons of closet space, with 2 closets each. Living space is super cozy with a toasty gas firestove and each room has electric baseboard heaters.

You'll also have access to the basement where you can store your bikes, skis, boots, and other wet items and where you can use the washer/dryer. Basement is heated and has a separate entrance, but is conveniently located below the unit. You can drop off your equipment on the way into the chalet, where your slippers and gas fireplace await! (Come on, can't you just picture it?)

The rental is located about 40 feet from the main house on shared property. You'll have plenty of privacy, and also the convenience of having the owners nearby (most weekends in the winter) if you need anything. (If we're not there, we're a phone call away and will gladly send our caretaker over to help out if needed). We affectionately refer to the house as the 'rondelet chalet' because, while the main house was built in the early 1920s, the rental was built in the late 60s and it's a funky round-shaped house that was evidently de rigeur at the time. Actually it's more like a dodecahedron! It originally functioned as the 'pool house' adjacent to the pool (which we just filled in this past spring). The rondelet has a certain charm in regard to its shape and layout...we think you'll get a kick out of it, while also finding it as cheery and cozy as can be. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Oh, for you good Catholics out there....we're right next door to a Catholic church!

About Elizabeth Galiardo

Liz, Mark, our 6 yr old son Austin, and our new baby daughter Holland, live in NJ full-time and have recently fulfilled a dream of purchasing property in the Catskills. We're still getting to know the area but have fallen in love with Windham and the surrounding towns and can't yet decide on our favorite season here. It's an awesome setting year-round with so much to do.

Elizabeth Galiardo purchased this house in 2013

Why Elizabeth Galiardo chose Windham

We have a gorgeous mountain view and have the best of both worlds. We're a 1 minute drive to town (10-15 min. walk) and a 5 minute drive to the mountain. The main house is on the property, so if you need anything we're not far away.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Round House was lovely. It is an adorable house that is very cozy inside, especially with the gas stove. The property is convenient to the Windham ski resort and the center of the town. While the drive is off a busy road, the house is set far back and up a hill with wooded areas surrounding it, and so feels very private. The view of the mountainside and ski slopes makes the location very unique. The house was very clean upon our arrival, and the kitchen well supplied with cutlery, dishes, pots and pans, etc. Communication with the owner was prompt, simple, and pleasant. We would love the opportunity to return on another occasion and would recommend this property to others.

Great house, walk to Windham

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. The house is good for two couples or two adults and up to three kids.

Windham starts feet from the house and can easily be accessed without a car.

The house is a fun blend of 80s chalet and modern updates. Gas fire is pretty and heats the house perfectly. It is far enough from the road for traffic not to be an issue.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great weekend! We were visiting the area for a wedding and found the perfect location. Plenty of room and close to downtown Windham. Liz was very easy to work with and responded very quickly to all of our questions.

Fantastic Cottage! A MUST Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our two kids just came back from a ski weekend. What an amazing cottage!! You will not be disappointed. This house is spotless with many upgrades, super cozy (the most comfortable beds we have slept on) and has an awesome view of the mountain. There is also plenty of space for your ski gear. Perfect location. About 1 mile from town and the mountain. We felt right at home as the house is well stocked with all the necessities. My kids had a ball with the electronic dart board!! Plenty of movies to watch or games to play. Liz and Mark are the owners and they are so kind and helpful. They were onsite and there to assist with anything we needed. We will definitely be returning next year!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review us, Donna! Glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay with us--and that the kids got some good use out of the dartboard and other entertainment provided. Hazel and I enjoyed our short visit on Saturday (seriously I asked her and she said "woof!"). What a fun and friendly family you are! Liz

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! It was super cozy and comfortable and had everything you'd need in a vacation rental. The location is key---only about 5 minutes from the mountain and right off of main st. The deck overlooks the resort and makes a great spot for an apres ski cocktail or hot chocolate on a nice afternoon. Everything is in great working order and the owner is extremely easy to work with…and the beds are incredibly comfortable. I'd highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in Windham.

This area is beautiful's not just for skiing! There are many recreational activities to take advantage of during every season--or just get away from it all and pull up a comfy seat on the deck, pour yourself a beverage, soak in the view, and don't move your entire stay. We won't judge!
