  • Very nice cabin in a quiet location

    "My husband, 3 month old daughter and I stayed here for a long weekend. We arrived on a Thursday night and left on Saturday. Friday was a cold day so after going to town for breakfast, we went back to the cabin and hung out there all day - relaxing, napping and enjoying the quiet! This cabin was very nicely renovated and everything in the main room and bedroom were very nice! The kitchen was well-equipped. We didn't cook in the cabin, but I made coffee every morning and there seemed to be enough cooking supplies for those who wanted to cook. The living room has a nice 'fake' fireplace as a heater and it was very cozy. The bedroom was perfect as well. The bed was comfortable and there was ample closet space. The bathroom was adequate, but not nearly as well-done as the rest of the cabin. It looked a bit shabby. One of the best features is the outdoor hot tub! We enjoyed it in the evenings and a chilly afternoon. One suggestion to the owner would be to supply additional towels. We only had two towels and had to use them for showers and post-hot tub. Note: this house is not walking distance to town. It's about a half mile from 212 and then, once on 212, it's another mile or so to the village green. If you are looking for a place where you can walk to town...this is not it. However, if you want proximity to town but a remote, quiet place to return to at the end of an outing, then this place is great! We ate breakfast both mornings at Oriole 9 - love this place and highly recommend it! We had dinner at the Bear Cafe and at the Red Onion - both were excellent and a very short drive from the house."

  • A special Catskills getaway

    "Three years ago, my husband and I decided to look for an upstate summer getaway (we live and work in NYC). We looked at a few places, but knew immediately that we felt good about this place. It is cozy while having an open lay-out. It has everything you would need - enough space for guests should they come, a good kitchen, washer/dryer, and entertainment. Best of all, really, is that it's across the street from a motorless lake. We've been back since - 4th of July weekend in 2012, a full month last August. We first rented Amber Lake as a couple -- and have been happy to introduce our toddler to Amber Lake and the Catskills. (He loved it -- and calls the place "wa-wa" for the water/lake). It's cool and quiet without being remote - Livingston Manor has a cute little town with a great bakery, market, and diner. My husband fishes at the lake, we walk go for walks, barbeque on the porch... our time here has been memorable and truly part of our family's story. Communicating with the owners has been easy via phone or email, and we've had no issues in all the times we've stayed there. Highly recommend (even though, as I write this, I fear that we will find Amber Lake unavailable for the next time we want to visit!)"

  • A great place to stay!

    "This is the second time I've rented a house from Karen and Aleks and I can't speak highly enough of them and their properties - although this house might be my favorite of the bunch. I spent the week here with a rather large group, but there was still loads of space for everyone and a huge parking lot for all of our cars as well. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat."

  • Perfect Autumn Weekend!

    "We were a group of 8 that stayed for a weekend in October. The house was in the perfect location - walking distance to Hunter (about a 20 minute walk), overlooking a small lake, and surrounded by woods for a little privacy. The house has 3 bedrooms, each with one full size bed and one with a twin bed as well. The loft area also has a futon mattress and room for an air mattress. The house was a nice size - plenty of room for all 8 of us to sit around the living room/kitchen. The deck overlooking the lake was the perfect setting for morning coffee. The kitchen was (mostly) stocked with the essentials to cook each meal at home. I suggest you bring paper towels and garbage bags - we had to do a last minute shopping run. The house was very clean and comfortable. The only "issue" was the shower found in the upstairs bathroom. It may just need a new shower head as there was no water pressure. The shower in the downstairs bathroom was fine. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again in the near future!"
