Overview

About the property

Greystone Mountain Lodge, 3 bed 2 bath home steps to Belleayre with a big patio

The ground floor consists of an open modern kitchen that connects with the dining space and a living room area with a TV, DVD player and a large fireplace. Conversation and interaction while preparing the food on the granite island is nice and easy. One bedroom and bath along with the Washer and Dryer sit on the ground floor. The sofa in front of the fire place is a sleeper suitable for two children. For wine enthusiasts we provide a large wine fridge perfect to keep your vino at the best temperature.

Up the stairs are two more bedrooms including the Master and another bathroom. Big windows and skylights throughout make for a very open, bright, and inviting home. Master bedroom has a large safe where you can store anything that you need more secure. Let us know and we can assign you a code. All rooms are nicely appointed and have a very comfortable and warm feel to them.

The outside ground of the house continues the theme of both relaxation and entertainment. A roughly 2000 square foot stone patio allows for a lot of possibilities. Most of the stone used in the making of the patio was taken from around the actual property.

As you go up the driveway to the house you will see the initial stone pathway. To your left will be a tiny man made frog pond complete with waterfall. Please be kind to the inhabitants if they decided to make an appearance and sit out on stones surrounding the pond. As the path winds around the house it opens up to the main portion of the patio. Big enough that it comfortably houses two very nice outdoor tables which sit off to either side of a large stone island with 5 burner drop in propane grill. For the charcoal enthusiast a Weber is provided on the deck as well.

In the far corner of the patio is a sunken hot tub that makes you feel like you are part of the forest. Terry cloth robes are provided for when you finish soaking while looking up at the stars. Descending from the main part of the deck down some wonderful stone steps you arrive at the fire pit. Get the s’mores and campfire stories ready while you sit on huge natural stone slabs that have sat on the property for ages. The deck is lined with both solar and electrical lighting. Pls note the hot tub has been damaged and wont be functional until Spring.

This home is perfect for all seasons.

Winter skiing is super easy as you can roll out of bed and within 5 minutes you are parking at Belleayre Mountain ski resort. After a long day of skiing while others are fighting traffic you are already back in front of a warm fire. Close enough to Hunter, Windham and Plattekill that you can add some variety to your ski location if you wish.

Spring and summer take advantage of all the hiking, fishing, tubing etc that is offered in the area. Belleyare music festival brings some great shows as well Hit the art scene or music festivals in Woodstock which is about 30 minutes away or visit the various farmer’s markets in the vicinity. Train rides thrill the kids and are with in a 15 minute ride from the house. Wedding season has us close to Roxbury, the Emerson Hotel and Spa, and Spillian resort.

Fall brings a burst of color with the changing of the leaves. Surrounded by forest on our mountain you will see some wonderful reds and vibrant oranges on the trees. A slightly brisk chill in the morning mixed with the fresh country air will make you wonder why you have to go back to the city.

Please note that pets are not allowed without prior permission and a pet security deposit. We do not rent to people under 25 years of age.

Whata Gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

I just want to thank Jason once again for allowing me and my family to stay at his beautiful home. It's a wonderful place if you are looking to relax and have some peace of mind. Everything in the house was perfect. The home was clean and beautiful inside and outside. I will definitely stay at this home again. My son who normally doesn't like going to the country told me that he had the best weekend. Thank you Jason for all your help. Like I said. THIS PLACE IS A GEM!!!

The house is in mint condition, well equipped. Lots of great books, movies and our kids had a blast with all the games they have, the perfect ending after spending all day skiing at Belleayre. We will definitely recommend it to our friends!!!❤️

Great property, responsive and laid back host

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this house. The backyard, interior, and neighborhood are great, and we had a great time in the house. Jason thought of all the little touches - great DVD collection and furniture and a huge wine fridge! Additionally, Jason let us know the morning we were set to arrive that unfortunately, a storm had damaged the hot tub, but he was super apologetic and refunded some of our money, even without us asking. He was incredibly responsive, laid back, and patient throughout all of our interactions. I would highly recommend this house!!!

Beautiful home with unexpected amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I regularly stay in rented homes rather than hotels, and this was one of our best experiences to date. The home is in pristine condition, including the grill, fire pit, and jacuzzi. The kitchen was fully outfitted with everything we needed to feed six people for two days without ever going out to eat. There were even six fluffy white robes for our post-jacuzzi comfort.

Jason could not have been a more pleasant host, offering just enough support without being intrusive, There are very helpful notes and labels everywhere, which I loved. We will definitely be back!

About Jason Katz

The wife and I have just moved back from across the pond in merry ole England. Originally from Michigan with the wife from St Lucia. Happily married a whole bunch of years now.

Jason Katz purchased this house in 2005

Why Jason Katz chose Delaware County

Friends of ours had a vacation house in the area. We were invited up and fell in love with the area. A couple months later we were Catskill property owners. Best decision we have made. So much fun and enjoyment over the years.

What makes this house unique

My wife and I have owned this property for over 10 years and have loved every minute of it. We have spent so many great nights up here. Whether BBQ, skiing, hiking or just reading a book by the fire the location and facilities allow for anything. Nothing relaxes the nerves like sitting in one the stone patio breathing the mountain air after a full day of enjoyment.
