About Nicholas A Tirino

My family and friends have enjoyed this house and location for years,now we are sharing it with others so they can experience this special place,with the cool summer nights,clean air,no traffic and only one traffic light that only blinks yellow,this place is a perfect escape from city life. When we are not chasing powder in the winter we are fishing and motorcycling in the summer always looking for a new adventure.Never stop exploring and a smile is a passport to the world.Enjoy our place.

Nicholas A Tirino purchased this house in 1996

Why Nicholas A Tirino chose Hunter

After visiting The Great Northern Catskills several times,I found this property that sits on this lovely lake and reminded me of my travels to other lakeside locations and ski areas,the house is part of a community that consists of a-frames and chalets and is minutes from the ski lifts,and sits on a sky blue lake, It is a special place,and so close to home,I had to have it,an easy 2 hour drive from NYC made it possible, the sunsets in summer are awesome and the location is unbeatable.

What makes this house unique

Lake front, 2 minute drive to ski area, close to town, close to river,close to all,a warm inviting space that everyone who has ever entered felt like they were home,a special place for special guests

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great weekend, our group enjoyed our stay tremendously, we all look forward to visiting in the summer, Nicholas was great to deal with and made the booking process easy and fast, great house with amazing views and super comfy, and the location was awesome. So close to the ski area that we came home for lunch and some of us even went back for some afternoon skiing. See you in the summer or next winter!!

House exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We rented Nick's house for a work getaway and there was 9 of us. The house had more than enough room for everyone to move around comfortably. The wood stove was a huge hit in the house and kept the house warm. Warm enough we had to open some windows. The house was well furnished and best part was it included linens and towels. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and spices. Great for people who enjoy to cook. The addition of a 2nd refrigerator and sink downstairs helped with storing drinks and food. The house is located less than a mile to the base of hunter mountain. Located on the lake the fire pit was a great feature to have after a day on the slopes. Nick was extremely fast to respond to questions. We will be staying here again.

Memorable End of summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We planed a 3 day family vacaction at this beautiful hunter mountain location. The house was more then what I expected. We loved every minute here.

Once I booked the house for Labor Day, Nicholas was very professional. Answered all my question. Instructed me on what to do the day of check in. He also provided me with ideas on what to do around the area. We visting laurel house kaaterskill falls. Overall we had a Beautiful experience.

The house was in great condition. The interior of house was clean. Spacious. Cozy home like feel. Three floors. Three bedroom upstairs. Living room and kitchen in main level. And two bedrooms at bottom floor. Great to separate guest/ family. Provided privacy but still together.

The house has beautiful views from the living room. And Bedrooms. Breath taking views The house backyard is a large lake. Kayak and paddle boat available to use on lake. we love the whole house. House had a 2 refrigerators / 1 stove/ dishwasher/ washer and dry machine accessible to us. 2 Hi-definition flat panel television with spectrum cable services. Location not to far from Main Street to buy groceries. The scenic views you visualize during the drive is something that I can't describe. Picture perfect. I recommend everyone looking for a getaway to hunter mountain to stay at this location. The price was fair, the owner is very professional , provided full attention when needed, made us feel valued. The house is everything we could ask for and so much more. Private area and great location to spend time with friends and family. Thank you Nicholas for a great end to the summer of 2017. See you next year.

Excellent place to relax right on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our group of ladies to get away, relax and catch up with each other. Plenty of space to really be able to stretch out. The weather didn't cooperate, but it was still a great time!

A perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and felt so lucky to have found the perfect cabin for our trip! The outside is of course beautiful with the hammock, the fire pit and the lake. But the living room was also very cosy, the kitchen fully equipped and the balcony was great to enjoy the view while having breakfast. We'll be back!
