It all started as a gift, an anniversary gift in fact, from our Grandparents to each-other, and ultimately to their family to celebrate 25 years of marriage.
This gift, which eventually became known to the family, as "The Mountain House", was built to provide a wonderful place where their family, could come together for holidays and getaways to enjoy all that Windham and the Catskills had to offer.
As the family grew, through 12 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren, so too, through 3 extensive renovations and various upgrades, did The Mountain House.
Today, we offer this gift to our guests to come together with their families, friends and colleagues to enjoy all of the amenities of The Mountain House as well as the activities and wonders of the beautiful surrounding area.
Stayed at The Mountain House with a few family members and some close friends celebrating a birthday, and had an absolute blast.
Derrek couldn’t have been more helpful in making it all come together as he hooked us up with catered breakfast, helped us find a local restaurant as well as a taxi company to get us there and back, and set us up with a pig roast with his friend John who did a phenomenal job.
Throughout the weekend Derrek and his team were extremely responsive and handed off the house to us in fantastic condition.
One last thing I wanted to make sure I called out was the swimming pond which blew away our expectations and provided us a great way to cool off from the heat.
Definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a nice getaway weekend with family and friends to get away from the clutter that the city brings.

Just spent an amazing weekend up at Derrek's place. The home was nice, spacious, and well equipped. The view was out of this world amazing. Literally felt "on top of the world" looking out from the deck. The pond was a really nice touch, clean and well maintained. The hot tub was large, comfortable and had an amazing view of the mountain. The fire pit was an added bonus, and was such a great way to end the weekend.

A beautiful and quiet house tucked away a few miles away from the town of Windham. We hosted a great family reunion here, and the place was perfect for it! Enormous dining room, with seats for 20, and plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware to host. Comfortable and clean furniture on the main level and upstairs, with a well-stocked kitchen (electric mixer, two ovens, two dishwashers, big gas cooktop, second fridge in the garage). Bedrooms were plentiful and for the most part spacious, with some nice touches like Tempur-pedic mattresses. The kids loved the basement - great TV, pool table, darts. Poker and foosball tables were also nice touches but a little dated. Some of the basement bathrooms were a bit older, but this only matters if you are going to fill the house up! We loved the fire pit at night, and the sound system was a nice touch too!
Derrek and his team (including a maintenance man) were great. On time to check in, with a tour of the property. When we had one incident with the water pressure (turned out to be related to a blown fuse), the maintenance man was responsive and onsite within 15 minutes. All in all, a successful gathering!

Went to the Mountain House for my 30th with a bunch of friends and it was a perfect getaway! Huge kitchen, nice rooms, surround sound for music, a beautiful view and an indoor hot tub. Had an amazing time, we highly recommend it!

This was a great house! I was there with my family including 2 adult children, my sisters family including 4 adult children and my mother. It was perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable and have their space. We were close to the mountain so we skiied and were easily able to get back and forth from the mountain. Some of us walked into town while others walked around the area. The check in process was easy and the house was spotless when we arrived. I highly recommend this house to extended families and those that like to have their space...

The Mountain House was exactly what we were looking for in Windham. Close to town and close to the slopes yet far enough away to feel secluded. Very peaceful property and perfect for large groups. Derrek was very easy to work with and I appreciate all of his help with our big group!

Thank you Emily for your wonderful review and for being such a great group! We look forward to hosting you in the future!
What a beautiful space? Our group drove up from the New York City area and the drive was absolutely. The house provided plenty of space‐‐we were 19 total‐‐and its location was perfect for all of our outdoor activities (running, cycling, hiking, golf, lake activities). Leading up to our stay and through the weekend I had a few questions for Derrek, and he always responded promptly. I would definitely stay at the Mountain House in the future!
