                            My wife son and I loved the peacefulness. We also enjoyed the kitchen and the location (close to Saugerties and Woodstock). One problem we had was that we were told that the place had a baby gate but we were not told that the baby gate was broken. The bedroom is at the top of a steep flight of chairs and if we knew this before we would not of made the reservation. We emailed the owner and asked for a reasonable reimbursement (20 percent) and never heard back.

                            We loved our 4 nights at this Saugerties rental. We rode our bikes up around High Falls, a quiet, historic, moderately hilly, beautiful 10 mile ride that started at the end of the driveway. Another day, we rode into town for coffee at David's and wings at Stella's. We played 9 holes at the Lazy Swan and enjoyed appetizers at their outdoor bar. When it rained, we watched a movie, laid around In the very firm and comfortable king sized bed, sat in the little living room and read to each other. Sitting on the back deck watching the horses munch on the pasture and listening to the roosters was very calming. Watching the meteor shower from the backyard was magical. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend this delightful little spot.

                            My husband is from Saugerties and we often visit, sometimes staying with friends and sometimes in a local B & B or hotel. Never again! This will be our go-to from now on. The house is more charming than the photos and has a fully-stocked kitchen, nice eating area and a small living room. The upstairs bedroom is large and bright with a window AC unit. The weekend we visited the temperatures were in the 90's and the window unit was sufficient. There is a full bath downstairs with a washer and dryer. The real bonus is the large outdoor deck and privacy. The house is set back off a main road and you can be in downtown Saugerties in minutes. The owners were responsive and helpful. We had fresh flowers, herbs and Krause's chocolates for our arrival. The house was clean, the bed was comfy and there were plenty of towels. We will definitely return.

                            I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend stay at this country house for our 3rd anniversary. The house was a bit smaller than I anticipated but was quaint, rustic, and charming. All the the things needed for a comfortable escape from the city. It was also a convenient 2-hour drive from NYC. I only spoke with the male owner, Robert, once during our stay, but I found him to be warm, helpful, and accommodating. I mostly spoke with the female owner, Anna, and found her to be a bit tepid -- neither cold nor warm -- in demeanor but helpful nonetheless. The 2 times she and I spoke during our stay I actually felt like I was bothering her. I also sent her a text immediately after our stay to thank her for the accommodations and say I'd be back in touch and got no response. Either way, the house is a delightful abode for a quick excursion from NYC. You will not be disappointed with the house and the friendliness of the people in nearby Saugerties.

                            Owner response: Thank you for the review. Our apologies for the tepidness. We just had a baby a few months ago and our attention has been re-directed. We see now that was reflected in the response time to your calls & texts. Lesson learned. We're glad the charm and warmth of the house and Saugerties made up for it. We will both be sure to increase our response time and take extra measures to be sure our guests are listened to and well taken care of. Thanks again, Anna & Rob

                            We came during peak leaf peeping season to visit the Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck and we had a wonderful time. The view was spectacular, and we woke up to deer in the yard every morning. I would definitely stay again!

                            I had a wonderful weekend away at this adorable country house located only a few hours from the city. I was so excited to spend a weekend at this place from viewing the photos, and was not disappointed once I arrived. The place looks just like the pictures and the kitchen was stocked as the owners promised. The house was clean and there were fresh flowers and yummy chocolates on the table when we arrived. The owner were in contact with us throughout the weekend to answer any questions we had. I definitely felt recharged after our stay here and definitely plan on renting this place again in the future.

                            My husband and I relaxed at this lovely house last weekend, and it was the perfect home base! The village of Saugerties is just a couple of minutes away, and has great little shops and restaurants to explore, and Woodstock is just 15 minutes the other way for an even more vibrant scene. We visited both and wished we had had more time to explore Woodstock. All around there are watering holes, the river and creek, and lots of beautiful nature to enjoy. It's a great area to bike around too, looking at the little gardens and woods along the way. It was so much fun taking a day trip to the Kaaterskil Falls, and then returning home to a beautiful space to grill some dinner and relax on the gorgeous porch. The horses and roosters at the neighboring farm, and the friendly cat who stopped by to say hello made the picture complete, and provided a lot of entertainment for our dog who happily frolicked or snoozed in the grass, and was always trying to sneak closer to catch a sniff of those horses! The house is incredibly comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated - it really felt like home and we were sorry to leave!! Thanks for a great long weekend.

                            The following is transposed from a hand written note from one of our June 2012 guests: To the owners, Thank you for the use of your home. We enjoyed our stay here. Even yesterday when it was quite warm, we were able to keep the house cool with the air conditioners & fan. We liked the farm animals next door, by the way. I also enjoyed the book collection. The Jeanne Michaels Catskill guidebook was a real treat and a help - and the Hemingway short story book too. We began our trip with The Clearwater Music Festival. We are leaving the folding chairs we bought for that here - hopefully useful to someone. Pay it forward is a good way to live. We highly recommend the 2-2.5 hour boat ride on The Mystic Whaler from the festival dock. It was lovely. We now head back to the airport and will be back in Memphis this evening. Thanks also for the chocolate. Regards, Gary & Barb, Memphis TN

                            My husband and I recently spent an anniversary weekend at the Catskill Retreat and we had an incredible time! The drive up from the city was relatively fast and easy. The Dioguardi's were wonderful to work with--SO nice and accommodating and they really made us feel welcome in their charming house. The house is in a fantastic location in Saugerties, a short drive from Main Street, but not too close--you are definitely in the country! The house was clean, and the surroundings serene and quiet. We would recommend it to anyone and plan to return this summer!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Robert, a self proclaimed 'lifer' in theatre who came to the Catskills as a child & Anna, a freelance Yoga instructor who grew up in the Canadian Rockies searched for almost two years for a second home as a getaway from their hectic New York City schedules. This house was the very first property they saw and after being taken off the market and then put back on, they bought it to share with other lovers of The Hudson Valley & The Catskills. The House is located close to plenty of recreational activities in addition to being quiet enough to not do anything at all. It's up to you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                          A welcome box of locally made chocolates.
