Still considering a winter excursion to upstate New York for a little skiing? There’s still time. Here are some short-term rental properties that will put you close to the slopes on the outside while keeping you warm and cozy on the inside.
This 5-bedroom Contemporary on eight acres in Columbia County has rights to Queechy Lake, which is great for summertime, but it’s also 30 minutes from Catamount Ski Area just over the border in Massachusetts. Gorgeous lofty interior with all kinds of windows, wood floors, and a wrap-around porch seal the deal. Beds: 5. Baths: 5. Square Feet: 4246. Lot Size: 8 acres.
Sticking in Columbia County and close to Catamount for this delightful farmhouse in Stuyvesant. Comes furnished and has a wood burning stove in the living room to warm you up after a long day on the mountain. Includes Wi-Fi, too. Added bonus: The city of Hudson is only about 20 minutes away. Hunter and Windham Mountains are about an hour away. Beds: 2. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 1302. Lot Size: 3 acres.
Located 40 minutes from Belleayre Mountain and about 45 minutes from Hunter, this post-and-beam in Woodstock is available now through May 15, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the winter recreation season. The listing mysteriously specifies “indoor pool not included,” which makes us wonder, is there an indoor pool but the tenants can’t use it? Or is that just a general piece of information? Beds: 3. Baths: 2.5. Square Feet: 2342. Lot Size: 1 acre.
