Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My name is Lisa, and I am an artist, Feng Shui consultant, chef and designer from NYC. My son, husband an 2 dogs love Apple Hill and have spent many summers and winters here enjoying the lake, skiing and nature all around. Its a magical place! We have taken great care in making the property comfortable for our guests so they feel right at home... We are new to VRBO and Home Away but you can find reviews if you look us up on line .. I engage minimally with my guests unless of course you have questions about your trip. In which case I am available 24/7 to help you.

Why the Owner Chose Tannersville:
We looked for 2 years in the area for a house just like this one and fell in love the second that we saw it. We have many fond memories at Apple Hill, even hosted 2 weddings and four baby showers! Not too mention 25 years of holidays spent at that house!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The views from the house are incredible, picnics in the orchard and chatting on the front porch on the comfy over stuffed sofas, we recently put a hammock on the porch too which our son adors swinging on. We have also taken great care in maintaining the garden with flowers blooming throughout the season and manicured walking trails in throughout the property which open to meadows campfire areas, as well as fishing spots.
