Harmony Hills’ Mountain Chalet is a 1,200-square-foot post-and-beam cabin set in a private clearing surrounded by tall trees and rolling hills of the Catskills. The open floor plan keeps the space light and relaxing, with a main living room, a media center with tv and wifi, a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances and a lofted sleeping area. Exposed beams and wooden floors with a warm, natural finish give this cabin retreat a rustic, artistic atmosphere, while small living luxuries like a washer and dryer, dishwasher, and full bathroom with a tub provide the daily comforts of home. The chalet is heated by an old-fashioned gas wood stove, in addition to baseboard heat.
Mountain Chalet is an ideal, roomy accommodation for one or two people, while additional daybeds and a sleeper sofa can expand the overnight capacity to eight guests. This forest vacation home is complete with a charcoal grill, an open-air wraparound deck, and a screened-in porch to the back of the house, fitted with a table and chairs for back-to-nature dining. Guests can also enjoy the fire pit in the clearing to the front of the house — firewood is provided. This beautiful mountain retreat is surrounded by cultivated natural features such as the two-acre meadow and a series of nearby hiking trails.
Sleeping arrangements: The upstairs loft bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed and two twin beds. Three daybed couches and a sleeper sofa and chair are supplied in the great room area.
Harmony Hill Retreat makes its home on a 70-acre, wooded mountain estate studded through with carefully preserved natural features and scenery, all connected by meandering footpaths.
Harmony Hill celebrates the beauty and serenity of New York’s Catskills region by offering guests exclusive access to treasures such as the 11-circuit Fieldstone Labyrinth and Whimsical Meditation, where guests can stop by and pass the time being charmed by the melodic wind chimes.
This a one-of-a-kind, meditative retreat offers guests a variety of choose-your-own-experience packages and add-on services such as a gourmet basket, guided meditation, couple coaching, life-coaching, Reiki treatments, massage, yoga or a past-life regression.
The retreat grounds are located near year-round tours and events at the historic Hanford Mills and museum, or fishing at local secret spot Kortright Creek. Fishing gear, bait, and canoe and kayak rentals are available nearby, and guided hikes can be scheduled on-site for an additional charge. Perhaps best of all, guests to Harmony Hills have the luxury of requesting a multi-course, farm-to-table, gourmet meal featuring locally sourced meats, cheeses and produce, delivered right the chalet’s front door.

Harmony Hill was a perfect refuge for two NYC-dwellers in need of a total escape while maintaining the comforts of home! Chris goes above and beyond to ensure that every detail is considered, including the best spot to catch the sunset. This place is simply a little oasis of paradise nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Catskills. We can't wait to return! Michelle and Alan

I loved the personalized itinerary [for my private retreat]. You've been fabulous. You met and exceeded my expectations beyond measure. Juliana H.
The environment was lovely. It was quiet and cozy in the lodge — the right place to really breathe. I loved being so close to the labyrinth and watching the turkeys and deer [in the field] in the morning. Thank you so much, I feel like I really got some rest and space to grow and strengthen during my stay here. I really hope I have the opportunity to come back. Julia
