Four out of the five of us, although our brother Bob is there in spirit since he's a chef and we're about to eat some fine food.

The Host did an excellent job welcoming us to their home. They provided a complete tour and some excellent suggestions. They patiently answered all of our questions. A complete delight.
Staying at this home in Windham was very pleasant for my family and our friends that joined us. Mermer was a great host. She was very accommodating and made us feel welcome. The home has great charm with its wrap around deck, fireplace and spacious rooms. We came to attend the Mountain Bike World Cup at Windham and this home was the perfect balance of being close enough to the mountain to attend the weekend's events but also remote enough to be relaxing. Everyone in our group had a great time. It would be a genuine pleasure to stay again.
Mermer is a great host. The listing was exactly as listed, if not better! The location in the heart of downtown Windham has perfect walking access to all the local coffee, markets, and restaurants that one could hope for.
The hosts were great. A wonderful old gem right on main street in lovely Windham. On Saturday, a local wine tasting was literally across the street! Would definitely stay again.
Six of us stayed at the Blakeslee house for a long weekend and absolutely fell in love with the house and the Windham area. Mermer was incredibly helpful with instructions on how to get to the house, and met us there when we arrived, giving us a tour of the house and recommendations for area activities. The house had so much history, charm, and space! We were able to grill on the breezy porch area, build a fire in the family room, cook in the well-equipped kitchen, and sleep soundly in the comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms. The local town had everything we needed, including fantastic country stores, a movie theater, and a brewery (the I.P.A. was delicious). Freshly cut lilacs and lilies-of-the-valley in the house were a wonderful touch, and overall we felt incredibly at-home. If we could, we would have stayed much longer!
We had a wonderful stay at the Gracious Home. The house very specious, with very large 5 bedrooms. Plenty of room for our two families with 5 kids all together. Kids loved the bedroom with a mini loft by the windows, perfect for coloring and playing with dolls!
Mermer was very helpful with directions and providing plenty of information before our arrival. We were greeted by Jackie, who showed us around and provided plenty of information regarding the house and activities in the area.
The house was very specious and truly charming. Kitchen had everything we needed. Kitchen is shared with the tenant, who lives in the suite downstairs, but the entire weekend we haven't seen the person. In the kitchen there are very clearly marked cabinets used by the tenant, which we stayed away from. Also there is a separate refrigerator for guests, the main one is used by the tenant, again clearly labeled, so we didn't have any problems with this.
We loved the wrap around porch, where we spent the afternoons, grilling, and sitting around, while kids were running around very the large yard, picking apples from old apple tree behind the yard (I hope we weren't trespassing). The highlight of each evening was relaxing in front of the rustic fireplace.
We come to the area each year for the Columbus weekend, mainly for the Octoberfest in Hunter, but we were surprised to find a fall festival happening almost in front of the house, on the Main Street! Kids loved it, and we didn't have to drive looking for activities - perfect!
We really enjoyed our weekend and would definitely stay here again.
Mermer and Eric, thanks to have been with us. You are the kind of people we like to where time with. Mermer thanks for your book, I am reading it. Eric thanks for the snake, I was little scared :-)
and thank you! we are happy and relieved about obama's victory!
