Nestled on five private, wooded acres of pines, hemlocks and oaks is the Northern Catskill Mountain hideaway known as Hunter Pines. This contemporary chalet is located a mere seven miles from the fun and excitement of Hunter Mountain and a short drive to Belleayre and Windham Mountains with their popular ski slopes, hiking and biking trails and exquisite beauty.
Upon arrival, Hunter Pines welcomes you with a huge, elevated, wraparound deck giving one the sensation of hovering above the forestry which it overlooks. Just below the expansive deck is the wonderful fire pit with comfortable seating situated at the edge of the serenity of the forest. Here your family can stargaze or warm-up on a chilly night while listening to the natural symphony provided by crickets and owls.
That serene feeling is carried from the deck into the house by the floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors which bring abundant sunshine and the natural beauty of the forest indoors. Walk inside to the open plan, 2-story main floor of the home. The kitchen provides all the modern conveniences, including stainless steel appliances, and offers plenty of room for family and friends to gather while preparing meals. The dining area faces the forest framed by the oversized windows and leads to the living area with its large, wood-burning fireplace surrounded by comfortable seating where you can relax after a fun-filled day on the mountain. Play any one of a selection of board games, read a book, watch a movie or listen to some of the great vinyl provided for your entertainment.
Off the main entry is the master bedroom and bath. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, bathroom and a sleeping loft overlooking the main floor. An unfinished basement is the location of the washer and dryer and the ping-pong table where competitions may close out your day.
During the winter season, Hunter is a skier's playground! When the snow melts, miles of hiking trails are revealed leading to the most incredible vistas of the Hudson Valley. Your Hunter Pines adventure vacation can include skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and even swimming under one of the area's many waterfalls. Hunter Mountain has become a true four-season resort offering a wide variety of events, festivals and activities year-round with great music, food, and culture!
