À propos de ce logement
Beautifully restored 1850`s Farmhouse on 60 acres with magnificent mountain views and access to endless hiking, mountain biking and exploring. You will have a truly rural experience but remain only 5 miles from the town and ski area of Windham and 8 miles to Hunter and Hunter Mountain ski area. In the summer you can swim in the private spring fed swimming pond or read a book on the little beach next to the pond while your kids make sand castles. Just 2 1/2 hours from NYC .
The house is approximately 2,500 square feet- with a large living/dining room, screened in porch and radiant heated floors in the living room, family room & towel warmers in the bathrooms & wireless internet throughout the house. Very comfortably appointed, but not fussy. This is a place to come down from the hustle of your life and hang out with your friends and family
There are 4 bedrooms although one bedroom is setup as an office with a very comfortable pull out couch for sleeping. One of the rooms upstairs is great for kids with a trundle bed (2 twin beds).
Main Floor: Bedroom #1: Large room with queen bed (North/East Exposure) Bathroom with shower & washer/dryer, full kitchen w/ Microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, soap stone counter tops and a 4 stool bar for eating. Dining room (table seats 8) w/ south facing mountain views, living room with wood burning fireplace (new model with glass doors that expose the flame for viewing) and radiant heated floors.
Upstairs: 2 full bedrooms (One is very private and separate from the rest with a king bed and an adjacent office with the best views in the house). Other bedroom has the trundle beds (mentioned above) and third bedroom upstairs is setup as an office but has an expensive pull out couch (queen bed) for sleeping extra people. This room is really pleasant with large windows with gorgeous mountain southern facing views. The house in general has tons of light.
Addition- Basement Family Room;
The addition to this old house is a family room/play area. It has windows facing south and west with lots of lot throughout the day.The floor is radiant heated- and the furnishings are minimal so that if you are with kids they can run around while the adults sit in the living room upstairs enjoying adult conversation and perhaps a lovely fire. The family room has a sleeper L-shaped couch convertible that converts to a queen bed) and a bathroom with a shower so is great for sleeping an adult couple or a nanny. The family room is separate enough from the rest of the house to feel more like a large studio apartment. There is access directly to the outdoors through bulkhead doors.
Accès des voyageurs
All spaces are available to our guests.
It's only 5 miles to Windham Ski Mountain and 8 miles to Hunter Ski and just a few miles from the best hiking in the Catskills. If you are looking for the suburbs this is not for you.
If you're looking for an amazingly quiet retreat for you and your loved ones look no further. This is an old farm house that has been tasteful renovated and oozing with charm (at least that's what people tell us).
We love that it's just 2 1/2 hours from NYC. It just seems impossible as we have so much wildlife in our backyard.
There is a taxi service out of Windham, but it is limited and relatively expensive. There is no public transportation available. A car is necessary.
While there are other houses in the neighborhood you often are alone in peace at our location. We discourage folks from booking who don't like being somewhere without streetlights. Our night sky has remarkably little light pollution for a location this close to the greater metropolitan area. So, if rural with conveniences on site, and good dining, skiing, hiking, biking, golfing, swimming or zip lining nearby is for you, come visit!!
For instant bookings the maximum number of guests is 6. Adult supervision is required for all children under the age of 5 to use/access the staircase to the playroom/family room. This is due to a cement floor and open staircase. We care that your kids are safe, so please do not book if you have small children and are unwilling to do this. We love furry friends but there will be a $100 addition to the cleaning fee.
