We’re thrilled to welcome you to Holly Lodge in Windham, NY. Our home is a recently renovated house that has the thoughtful charm to be your home away from home, but also includes many of the in-home amenities you might expect from a resort hotel.
Nestled just east of the Town of Windham, the house is only a 7 min drive to Windham Mountain and approximately 20 min drive to Hunter Mountain.
The location is perfect for winter skiing, sledding, and snowboarding. In the fall, hike below the beautiful foliage, and in the spring/summer be sure to check out the nearby swimming holes, more hiking, antiquing, and local farms & vineyards.
Holly Lodge - Ashland has 5 traditional bedrooms and can sleep up to 10 guests. With 2 King Size Bedrooms (one of which has a bathroom en suite), 1 Queen Size Bedroom, and 2 bedrooms with 2 double beds, you will find room for your entire group to spread out. All bedrooms feature Casper Mattresses, quality linens and are thoughtfully decorated. Smart TVs are in every bedroom as well where you can easily sign into your Netflix, Hulu, or other streaming account. All bedrooms have spacious closets with shelving so you can comfortably unpack for your stay. Each room has its own climate control so that guests can adjust to their individual preference.
The Kitchen is equipped with all new appliances and finishes as well as cooking utensils, pots and pans, general spices, and basically all the tools you need to make morning pancakes, spaghetti Bolognese dinner, and everything in between. (Groceries not provided.) For morning coffee, there is a k-Cup machine and coffee pods, but you are welcome to use your own flavors as well. You will find all the dish ware, serve ware, and drink ware you need for such a large group to dine, but don’t worry, we have you covered with a dishwasher too.
There are 3 bathrooms in Holly Lodge, two of which has a large bathtub, perfect for filling with bubbles or salts to kick back and relax. Every shower has a rain head and body sprayers and all of our bathrooms are stocked with toiletries, a hair dryer in each, and super plush towels.
In the main entertaining area is a Living Room adjacent to the kitchen and dining room. Here you will find a comfy sofa, coffee table, lounge chairs and a 65” Smart TV, perfect for family and friends to gather around and relax. The Dining Room features a large table with enough seats for your group to dine together.
Step out the back door and you will find yourself on an expansive wood deck with table and seating for 10. If BBQ-ing is your thing, we have you covered with a propane grill. An extra tank is provided in case the one there runs low and needs to be swapped out. Just a few more steps into the backyard is a large fire pit surrounded with Adirondack chairs for your entire group to gather around. We provide you with a fire starter kit and good amount of wood for multiple nights of fires. Also in the backyard, you will find a wood pergola with a bench, egg chair, and more… perfect for leisurely hanging out in the outdoors.
The entire house is available for guests.

This house is so well located that you will find great Food & Drink options moments away, including Chicken Run, Brandywine Restaurant, Messina LaGriglia Ristorante, Catskill Mountain Country Store - Windham, The Windham Local, Millrock Restaurant, and Vineyard at Windham.
