About Jonathan

We are a professional 30-something couple who live in Manhattan.

Jonathan purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Jonathan chose Catskills

We wanted a weekend getaway from the city that was peaceful and off the beaten track but not too remote. We also wanted a home that we could use to host friends and family and use as a base for hiking and skiing.

What makes this chalet unique

We loved that the house was so perfect for entertaining yet was also peaceful and relaxing. The first thing we did with the place was to renovate the kitchen to make the main floor even more open.

THE PROPERTY WAS PERFECT. The house was great, so much bigger than we imagined. Well stocked, and taken care of. Will be back again.

Beautiful house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a group. My family stayed here (there were 10 of us) and we were so comfortable. Large kitchen, plenty of places to hang out and very cozy. The owners keep it very well maintained and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

Absolutely beautiful and roomy

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do the house justice, it's absolutely beautiful and even bigger/roomier than we thought. The basement is huge with a bar area, game tables and a huge couch area, which was great. The fire pit was also a lot of fun to sit around and make s'mores. The bedrooms were roomy and comfy. The kitchen was well stocked and beautiful. It was an easy drive from the NYC area too. We'd love to come back and stay again. And Jonathan was very helpful with answering all my questions.

I highly recommend booking this house for your next stay!

Spacious clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed the weekend, and while we had every intention of exploring the neighboring towns, this house was so comfortable that we left maybe once to pick up some food. The dual fireplaces and heated floors are amazing, and everything we needed was stocked and ready. Would definitely stay here again, and totally would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and beautiful getaway in the Catskills.

Modern Catskill Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and had all the modern amenities that you could need. We stayed there for a weekend getaway and were absolutely blown away at how great the accommodations and amenities were. Lots to do if you wanted to stay on the property, including basketball, air hockey and pool table. The Sonos sound system was an added bonus! We simply had to download the app via wi-fi and we could control our music selection right from our phone. We would highly recommend to anyone and our group will be booking again for next year.

A wonderful experiance!

  • 5 of 5

A 5 day family gathering, a full day birthday party with guests of all ages, meals prepared daily with the use of the fire pit, B-B-Q grill, and well equipped kitchen, terrific blue-tooth sound system on multiple levels of the house made entertaining super easy, tons of space to escape that one crazy relative or noisy kids, Jonathan was very assessable, flexible, and non-intrusive. This house was built for entertaining and it’s much larger than it appears in the pictures. We hope to use it again in the future.
