About Ashton and Danielle Saunders

While living and working in NYC, we dreamed of having an escape away from the city and being close to the ski slopes. Birch Creek Lodge as we call it, after the creek running through it, was the perfect solution. Having a home away from home, now especially with 3 young children was just perfect for those weekends to get away from it all. We have just recently moved to Texas and not able to use our upstate home as much so we would love to share it with those of you that need that time with nature away from the hustle of the city like we did!

Ashton and Danielle Saunders purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

On 16 acres and several creeks there is plenty of exploring to be done, just on the property! In the winter after a big snowfall we are able to sled and tube down the drive or make our own winter park in the adjacent side gardens!!

Wonderful house on a large plot of land

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed it.

One big gripe was that the house had horrible wifi. Perhaps we could have been warned of this! Other than that, maybe provide shampoo/soap in the bathrooms, and provide instructions on how to operate the hot tub as it was super confusing.

But still, highly reccommend going to this house and we might even go back!

Wonderful Home nestled in the Catskill Mountains. Perfect for family retreat or ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this wonderful property. The two main floor bedrooms were perfect for our older family members while the kids all bunked downstairs and we slept in the master with the beautiful views of the stream and woods. I highly recommend this gem in the woods!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other properties under the same ownership as this home and we are never disappointed. The condition, cleanliness, and amentities of their properties are all 5 star worthy! The service provided by the owners and the managers of each of their properties is also top notch! Thank you, Danielle for another great experience!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The interior of the home was actually better in person than the pictures. It was nice having 2 living areas; we utilized the basement for playing games when the kids went to sleep upstairs. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. The only thing we weren't expecting is that 2 of the bedrooms are actually connected and only separated by curtains instead of a door, but luckily we were all family and no one was shy about "sharing" a room. Plenty of space for outdoor activities - we brought a volleyball net, and the hot tub was great after a game. The nearby small pond was very picturesque. Overall, we were completely happy with our stay and would love to come back someday soon!
