About the Owner

My husband and I are from the NYC area and love the quick escape the Catskill region offers. We purchased land in the late '90's and worked hard to make our dream escape become a reality. My husband is one of the best builders in the region and we spared no expense to make this one of the finest vacation homes in the Hunter/Windham area. Since then, we have purchased four more beautiful homes in the immediate area. All with unique qualities and offerings. It brings us tremendous joy to share with others our beautiful homes away from home.

Our weekend at Joann’s house was everything we wanted it to be! The house is clean and spacious. The big backyard is perfect for lawn games and campfires, and of course the hot tub is a highlight. It was also great to be surrounded by trees.

Joann is a very kind and responsive host with plenty of information about anything you might need to know, and I would want to stay at her house again!

This house is incredible! I rented it for a girl's weekend and we had the best time. There were 12 us and had plenty of room to spread out and not be in each other's way. We came in the month of May, so not during ski season. Plan ahead with a local taxi service if you plan to go out for drinks as most of the good places are about a 25 minute drive! We will definitely come back to this house.

Checking in was a breeze. The kitchen spills right into the great room so communal living was fun and effortless! Our party of 11 had plenty of room to spread out for comfortable sleeping. The hot tub was in great working order and we enjoyed multiple campfires outside, just off the basement entrance. JoAnn was very attentive when we reached out with questions and was quick to remedy any problem. Thanks for everything!
