Marriage in the Mountains

The House of the Four Winds is incredible. The view is like no other, the family friendly home is immediately comfortable and the owners are close by in the community to make sure everything is just right. Our son was married up the road at The Stone Church and we had everyone over to take it all in following the ceremony and it was a big hit. All the comforts of home, it was everything we had hoped for and more - we hope to come back.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your wonderful review. It makes it important for us to know that you all had a wonderful time and that you would love to come back.

Thank you

sunset porch - columbus day weekend

We had a wonderful stay... hiked during the days, lit a roaring fire and cooked meals in this cozy but spacious home. Would definitely stay there again. Lovely hosts... lovely scenery.

Sunset View

The home is beautiful and very spacious. The view was amazing. The location was great - there was a really nice hike at the end of the street, a grocery store 10 minutes away, etc. The owners were local, this seemed to be their primary residence, and were kind enough to stop by on a few occassions to drop off toys for my young daughter to play with while we were there, as well as a raincoat for me to use, as I'd left mine at home. The only drawback was there appeared to be concerns around water useage - we were cautioned not to all shower every day (we were a big group though) for fear of running out of water and to flush only when needed...hopefully this was just a matter of the need for rain this season. Otherwise we really had a great time and loved the house.

Beautiful View, Historic Home ....

...but not quite a four-star experience: uncomfortable beds, ranging from too mushy to too hard; food left in the fridge by homeowners; mouse spotted in the kitchen.... best part was the wrap around porch overlooking an incredible view of the catskills... we had a lot of fun bbqing and hanging out outside. overall, a great place for people on a budget who aren't too picky about luxuries/cleanliness.

Beautiful view-- but several drawbacks

July 5, 2009

Pros: View, porch, grill, plenty of space to spread out (there were 11 of us and we felt comfortable), great price, owner was very nice Cons: There was no key (the house was just left open for us), pool is not on the property (we never actually saw it and still have no idea where it is), We spotted a MOUSE in the kitchen, several uncomfortable beds, terrible pillows, fridge had things left in it (condiments, 1/2 bottle of wine, frozen veggies, etc), family pictures all over the place... OVERALL: If it weren't for the view and the amazing porch, I would have given this place 2 stars. This is the first time we have actually rented someone else's home, so I'm not sure what standard procedure is, but we were turned off by the food left in the fridge and the family pictures all over the place. Between this, the uncomfortable beds and the mouse, it certainly wasn't a luxurious experience. BUT the view was incredible and we had an wonderful time grilling and enjoying the sunshine
