Amazing, new mountainside post-and-beam loft home! All new appliances, heating and AC systems. Excellent for relaxing in all seasons. Large windows frame the side walls and surround the loft from floor-to-ceiling. Looking out into the woods, it feels as if you are in the tree tops. With a large deck and a covered porch, the home is well off the road and offers a cozy, private atmosphere.
Panoramic views of the surrounding mountains are available from winter through spring. Ski nearby Bellayre Mountain! Enjoy fantastic spring, summer & colorful fall foliage.
In the 12’ by 24’ upstairs loft, guests will find a king-size bed made up of two, independent electro-mechanical adjustable XL-twins. This couple’s arrangement is ideal for reading, morning coffee or sitting up at night to view a full moon as it floods and highlights the landscape. Roll to the side and you have a floor-to-ceiling view to the outside from either direction.
The downstairs bedroom is fully enclosed and has a queen bed from which you can look up the hill through a ten-foot double-window span. It is not uncommon to see deer grazing just yards away.
The first-floor bathroom offers a comfortably sized walk-in shower with ample, on-demand hot water.
Whether you are planning to ski, hike or dine and shop in the hamlets, this retreat is a perfect escape. A fully-equipped kitchen and Irish farmer’s table allow you to cook up a storm and relax in comfort.

I’m a technology journalist with a background in literature. Living in spaces with plenty of light, a strong interaction with the environment, and the opportunity for silence when it’s needed is what I desire. These elements bring out the best in me, whether working or relaxing. I mention this because the post-and-beam house I built in Big Indian, NY was designed to be a retreat not only for me—but for you and your family when you visit.
I know that whether you are star-watching from the large loft windows at night or sunning on the deck with your morning coffee, we will have enjoyed and shared experiences in very similar ways. That idea delights me, and I hope you’ll feel the same magic in this special home listed on AirBnB.
