  • Perfect Place for A Family Reunion

    "Shakespeare on the Hudson was the perfect location for our family reunion. With thirty people ranging in age from eight months to mid seventies, we were a big and eclectic group, but the River Lodge met everyone's needs. Lots of space, a beautifully appointed house, plenty of big areas for congregating and socializing, an enormous lawn which was perfect for impromptu team sports, a fire pit for s'mores, and of course the beautiful Hudson River right there-- this house truly has it all. The kids had fun swimming in the pool outdoors and playing pool indoors, and the kitchen was big enough for many cooks at once. (One suggestion: the kitchen could use a couple of large cooking pots and large serving bowls). The walls are surprisingly thick-- noise traveled between the rooms right next to each other but not from one part of the house to another. Bob was quick to send Dave over to fix the kitchen door that was stuck, and he was friendly and fixed it quickly. We loved being there in the summertime and took full advantage of swimming and kayaking in the river, hiking the trails, and chasing fireflies in the woods, but this house seems ideally suited to every season. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at the house, but the last night we ate at the Stewart House's River Garden, a beautiful B&B and restaurant that is part of Shakespeare on the Hudson. Kim was very helpful in accommodating our group and arranging for a tasty buffet that met our food requests and pleased all age groups. Everybody agreed that we should have our next reunion at Shakespeare on the Hudson again!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "This was perhaps the nicest VRBO I've ever rented from. Beautiful, cozy, secluded, warm and stunningly picturesque. Everything was in perfect working order, and meticulously maintained. The house is a best suited for a group of 6, but we easily made it work with a group of 8 (with one couple sleeping on an airbed). We rented in the late fall, but I'm excited to rent again in Summer (and perhaps Winter too)."

  • Best Catskills Vacation Ever

    "We spent the last two weeks of August at the farmhouse in Bovina. We've rented other properties in the Catskills, but this is the first one that not only lived up to our expectations, but exceeded them. The property itself is enormous (well over 100 acres), gorgeous, and beautifully maintained. It was a pleasure to simply sit on the front porch and drink of cup of coffee or a glass of wine. My husband and dog would hike up to the top of the hill behind the house every morning and take in the amazing view. We swam in the pond, played lots of dog Frisbee on the grass, and went for long runs on the Catskill scenic trail nearby. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. There was a nice Weber grill outside. And we made dinners many nights from produce purchased at local farm stands and farmers' markets and vegetables and herbs straight from the garden. If we didn't feel like cooking, we could drive to the nice little restaurant in Bovina Center, or get Friday night pizza in Bloomville, or just grab a burger and a beer in Andes. Our two weeks in Bovina were supremely idyllic and we were sorry that we had to return to the city."
