Why Hoda Osman chose Windham

We have been camping and skiing in the catskill area for years. It's our escape from our busy, crowded lives. We fell in love with this house before even entering it because of its breathtaking views. You cannot hear a sound there in the morning except for the birds chirping and the wind blowing. It is so peaceful yet so close to all the activities we love and restaurants and shops if we feel like it.

On the inside, the house is also unique because of the amazing woodwork. Old barnyard wood covers the walls and the ceilings and gives it a charming, old feel.

What makes this house unique

The views are breathtaking. You can enjoy them from the inside or sit outside and breathe the fresh air.

The fireplace is also unique. We've rented many houses in the area and in Vermont and we've never seen a fireplace as big as this one.

Incredible view with comfort able accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

This is a large home that is furnished comfortably. The views of Windham and the valley are amazingly beautiful. The home appears to be a work in progress but was really very beautiful. The kitchen had everything you need. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. I would definitely stay again if we come up this way again.

One of a kind special

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed and had plenty of room staying here. Info, reservations and questions were promptly provided by Hoda before, during and after our stay. The beautiful home and property are large and so we learned the first day how everything worked and corresponded with Hoda about any concerns. The delightful home is a mix of ages, so lighting may be dim for some in areas at night. A few lightbulbs were out, but we found replacement bulbs in closet for most. We adjusted lighting as needed and used some of the hand camping lights found in closet to provide extra light. Before arriving, we purchased septic toilet paper for bathroom use since we read the house is on septic and we have familiarty with it best to use septic paper. The kitchen had plenty of room and dinnerware and such to use. Nice size fridge, mw, dw, dining tables, couches, TV, parking, and outdoor chairs to use. Hoda mentioned that outdoor painting and repairwork were being done before we arrived, but that stopped for our stay. We found plenty of extra blankets for beds. There was some scraping exterior debris around outside of house and we purchased a few wash rags for bathing, but otherwise house in wonderful condition and our stay perfect. Hoda's hospitality is really great! We're grateful for the fun memories!

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Overall we loved our stay at Hoda's house! The view was beautiful and the house was comfy and inviting. The temperature dropped at night, so sleeping accommodations were comfortable in those rooms without air conditioning. I only had two minor complaints, one being the brick patio in the front of the house not being secured and dangerous at times, with some of our guests tripping. The other being that the pond did not seem to be stocked as advertised, or maybe just not as much or recently as I had thought it would considering it was advertised in the listing. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend Hoda's home to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Alyssa, I'm happy to hear you had a good time and thank you for your constructive comments. We are in the process of redoing the patio area. In the meantime, I will definitely make sure the loose pavers are secured and safe. I am sorry regarding the fish in the pond. Not sure why there wasn't enough fish as the pond is stocked regularly and when we were there last the kids caught and released fish. I appreciate you letting us know and will restock the pond with enough fish. Hope you come again in the future. Best, Hoda

Amazing house on beautiful property that makes for a perfect getaway.

From the views from the front door, the rustic feel of the house, and the serene beauty you can enjoy by the fire, this house is perfect if you need to just get away and unwind.

Off the beaten path but close enough to drop into town.

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully peaceful setting. Owners are super responsive and have taken care of every detail. Great kitchen and plenty of sleeping arrangements. Plenty of parking and well maintained grounds. The grandkids played UNO until 1 AM with their grandparents!! Great family memories made!

Very good choice.

  • 4 of 5

I'm a bit "spoiled", so that's the only reason I gave 4 stars (I've never give 5 stars for a rental). The house is VERY good. It's 100% wood and was build to live in (not as a rental) by a "handyman". Every detail is carefully thought off. Kitchen is the best part. Will probably come again.

Windham is a charming town. In addition to great skiing, it has numerous good restaurants and antique stores. There is also a movie theatre, performances and year-round festivals. There is zip lining, snow tubing right there as well. In addition, the Catskill area is filled with other places which are a short drive away. The Kaaterskill Waterfall in Saugherties is a beautiful hike. There is also Catskill Park and North & South Lake. Amazing hiking for all levels. Fresh water fishing and much more.
