Perks for the Parents

A year-round retreat set on a glimmering private lake, with spectacular views, an Olympic-sized heated swimming pool and a hot tub. It sleeps 10. This gorgeous home is tailor-made for families looking for a rural escape. Gather round the outdoor bonfire pit for kids to enjoy S’mores, or relax after busy days on the mountains in front of the roaring fireplace. The wraparound porch means you can spend your days outside, whether it’s for morning coffee on the wicker furniture enjoying views of the lake, or sipping cocktails in the hot tub after the little ones go to bed.

Why Kids Love it

This is a fantastic home for kids, with quirky oak wood bunk beds (ideal for siblings, cousins or friends to share) and plenty of board games and books to enjoy, as well as heaps of outdoor space to run around. The hosts have 2 young kids under 10, so it’s well set-up for children and they’ll love trying out the piano or swimming in the pool all day long. (Kids floats are provided for extra protection). Active families will love the outdoor sports available at Hunter and Windham, such as snow tubing in winter or hiking and biking in summer.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights July through Labor Day. 2 nights rest of the year. Maximum stay: 180 nights. Maximum number of guests:10, unless otherwise approved. Safety notes: the pool is heated but not gated on all sides. The lake is not accessible to guests but there is no gate or fence between the water and the house, so young children should be supervised at all times outdoors. There is parking for 3-4 cars at the property and 4 wheel drive vehicles are recommended for the winter months. Pets are permitted on request at an additional cleaning charge of $250.

About the Location

The property is located in Jewett, 2.5 hours from New York City and 2 hours from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. There is a bus from NYC to Main Street in Windham town (15 minutes away by car) which also has a few stores and great restaurants, plus lots of great trails for mountain biking and hiking. Hunter mountain resort is also around 10 minutes’ drive, for world-class skiing and snowboarding in the winter season or a range of outdoor summer activities, including Kaatskill Flyer sky rides, 4x4 off-road adventures, ziplining and hiking. The closest international airports are in NYC (around 2.5 hours away).

Accommodation Details

Style Notes

Charming cabin. This warm and inviting home features plenty of comforting, retro touches to create a cozy retreat. A perfect log home with vaulted ceilings and a stone fireplace to boot, it is very well decorated with a mix of traditional charm and modern luxury, and has been featured in WSJ Real Estate. We love the unique green painted woodwork, the arched window on the mezzanine level and the mountain-inspired artwork.

I am based in New York City and have traveled extensively with my family. We own a gorgeous lake side cabin in upstate New York that we like to share with family and friends when we are not using it ourselves.

Windham, Catskills

Small town charm, ski lodges and outdoor adventures

Windham is in the heart of the Catskills with all the area has to offer on the doorstep: pretty towns for vegetable stalls and antiquing, hiking trails, swimming holes, and fabulous ski resorts in the winter. A great weekender spot for active families, you can be mountain biking, playing golf, fly fishing and hiking wooded trails. It's not bad if you prefer shopping, cooking, browsing pretty boutiques and reading books in a lovely location either...
