Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a parent, designer and environmentalist who likes to get away to the mountains. This house is a wonderful place to go skiing with my son and friends. I later found the Catskills are a beautiful place to hike! I have a big dog who hikes with me, so I needed a place where she is welcome too. :)

Why the Owner Chose West Kill, NY, USA:
The house is a 20 minute drive to Belleayre, Hunter and Wyndham Mountains. It's a lovely summer retreat as well, being within a few miles of the Devils Path trail head, which hits seven of the tallest peaks of the Catskills. The fall colors surround the house in spectacular glory!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is warm. The beds are cozy comfortable and I love sipping my coffee watching the mountain mist in the morning, before the rest of the house wakes up.
