Perks for the Parents

This sensational home in the Catskills is ideal for larger groups and is set up with great indoor and outdoor spaces, a huge yard with a natural swimming pond and a games room. Perfectly curated for large groups, and sleeping up to 23, everyone has their own space. There are 3 master bedrooms, all ensuite with a large soaking tub, and plenty of privacy; an additional 3 bedrooms are set up for families with queensize beds plus bunk beds and trundle beds, and can work well for young families together or as a dorm-style set up for a mix of children. The 22-seater dining room table allows the whole group to come together for meals. Multiple gathering spaces (great room, loft living room, theater den, dining room and game room) means large groups can split up according to their needs. The location is sensational for skiing in winter, swimming in summer and hiking, antiquing and farm visits at all points of the year.

Why Kids Love it

Children love the great open spaces indoor and out: there is a huge yard with a natural swimming pond, plus yard games, and a large fire pit to gather round for s’mores. Bedrooms are set up with kids in mind - 3 of them have bunk beds and trundle beds, so you can configure rooms to suit kids. It’s great fun with another family or 2 - and all the kids can sleep together. In the winter, there are great hills for sledding and (temperature permitting) you can ice skate on the pond. In all seasons, there is a games room which features billiards, foosball, and darts (out of reach of little ones) and a cinema room for family film nights. Outdoorsy families can indulge in skiing, snow tubing, hiking, mountain and road biking, ziplining, golf, fly fishing, and kayaking nearby. Zoom Flume Water park is under 20 minutes away by car.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. Rental includes the entire estate. Safety notes: the natural swimming pond is ungated, but it takes some getting to. Stairs are not gated - young children will need to be supervised around them, on the mezzanine level overlooking the lounge and on the upper deck and balcony. The hosts offer a complimentary concierge service for excursion booking, and can arrange onsite services like chef, waitstaff, spa services (in-house or off location), tours, golf, yoga classes, and more. Car rental is strongly advised for getting around the local area; there is parking at the property. There is a stereo with iPod connection and speakers throughout floor, with volume control in each room. There are limited items for baby/toddler parents but there is plenty of space if you need to bring a travel crib with you and there is a portable play yard.

Style Notes

Modern mountain lodge. This fabulous open and light-filled mountain house has alpine touches throughout and fixtures and fittings of the highest quality. Sitting on 5 beautiful acres with views of 4 of the highest peaks in the Catskills, the property is stunning, well located and ideally set up for a larger group stay. There is easily enough space and plenty of facilities for up to 4 families or a large extended family group.

Design features through the house include knotless red cedar ceilings in the great room and main floor master bedroom, and rough cut cedar walls on the lower level. We love the thoughtful touches throughout, the wet bars in the living rooms, the high ceiling of the great room, and the spacious bedrooms.

My name is Derrek, my grandparents built The Mill Street Residence back in 1982 as a 25th anniversary present to each other so they could get away with their 4 children and their growing families. As the number of grandchildren grew and grew up, so did The Mill Street Residence through 2 major extensions/renovations and constant updates/improvements. A few years back, with most of the grandchildren grown up and busy and not using the house as much my grandfather said he was going to sell The Mill Street Residence, a place of so many wonderful memories and experiences. I along with my brother Keith took the initiative to market the house for other families to experience the magic of The Mill Street Residence, while also retaining the property for the next generation!

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...
